When the body screams in pain, we have no choice but to listen. Well, that’s not exactly true: we can suppress it, resist it, hate it, get surgery on it, medicate it, and try to manage it. But the reality is that no intervention will give us the relief we seek if we’re not first attuned to what it is we really need.

The mind can easily look at the body and it’s pain as something separate from your full self. However, you are one, fully, integrated person who is not a composite of separate parts. If your body is suffering, even if it’s from an “accident,” how you meet that pain is the same way you meet yourself and the world.

How do you meet your emotional world? How to you meet your psychological world? How do you meet your physical world?

If you’re unable to turn toward and embrace your darker emotions and thoughts, it’s very likely that it’s difficult for you to embrace your painful physical experiences. The more practiced you are in doing this, the more connected you are with your true self. When you can stay expansive, empowered, and loving with your experience of pain, you are then able to be guided to the solution

I share more about this in my video blog: “Howto manage your chronic and acute pain.”

Are you speaking your truth or are you just projecting?

It’s common to see our relationships through the lens of unconscious memories of people from our past (projections), through barriers or walls to intimacy (deflections), through old ideas from the past about who we are (introjections), through shame and guilt (retroflections), or through the opinions of others (confluence). In Gestalt psychotherapy, we call these Contact Boundary Disturbances. All of these disturbances are patterned ways of being in relationships that we developed early in life in an attempt to find safety and keep connection. These were adaptable strategies that helped us when we didn’t yet know how to stand in our dignity and our truth.
