There are several ways to go with this. A fine meditation technique,
especially for those who believe in a deity, is the Visualization of a
Deity technique, which can be found at:
This gives you the
opportunity to surrender and offer your pain to your God, which may be
the sacrifice that most pleases your deity. God doesn't want you to
suffer, and pain can be looked at as a learning experience, and once
you have appreciated it's lesson, it is appropriate to give it up.
God, as the Savior, is glad to take your suffering from you. Another
technique that has helped many can be found at:
It is titled Visualization of Cellular Healing and offers 8 different
techniques. The eighth one is specific for pain.
Many people have found that breathing techniques are very efficient at
releasing endorphins, and producing a soothing relief from pain. One
simple technique titled 1-1-1, is done by inhaling for one unit of
time, holding the breath for one unit of time, and exhaling for one
unit of time. The "unit of time" is whatever is comfortable for you -
one second, 2 seconds...whatever. Another thing to do while doing
1-1-1 is to visualize healing and pain relief filling you with each
inhalation, see the healing reach into every area of discomfort while
holding the breath, and then send the pain out with every exhale.
I also hope you are following your physician's directions and using
the medications s/he has ordered for you, in the exact way they have
I hope this helps, and wish you well.
