there are many different ways to deal with pain and it
is often really helpful to find someone you can trust.
a person who can be a safe witness to be present with
you as you bring awareness to that which you have avoided
until you felt ready to face it. every day people
use courage and take a chance in clearing what is
blocked. it is possible. meditation brings attention
to what is, and often people will discover that there
are strong feelings, beliefs and memories that have
been ignored or have simply not been noticed. it is
really useful and ok to reach out for assistance in
healing when intense pain is noticed. pain will often
return over and over until the message has been heard.
for some, without having support, they believe they
are failing at meditation, when really it is simply
another aspect of one's self that is calling for
attention. you have the ability to read, to type, to
find your way into an online group, therefore you have
the ability to concentrate. it is just there is some
stuff present to be looked at, energy to be released.
the very part of yourself that has led you to be
interested in meditation holds the wisdom to take
you further in your unfolding.
be kind to your self.
