I don't know about you, but I can always tell when it's about to rain from the pressure of my head and neck-ache. The pain promises me that rain is coming. When the rain comes and is done I begin to feel better. There is much promise in pain. It will pass.
It is a good reminder and one that I want to share with you. The amount of pain that you have right now is going to change. Regardless if the relief is temporary or permanent you will not be the same as you are right now in this red hot minute. We are constantly changing. Think about this for a minute. Change is constant, pain is a promise. The promise is up to you. You can get excited that the sun is coming out, you can move to another place with a different environment, you can get a massage, you can go the chiropractor, you can take a nap, or you can focus on prayer. Whatever your choice is to change your present pain I challenge you to dig deep if you must to find a purpose and a promise to the pain.
Personally, I've been putting an essential oil blend on my neck which is working to relieve it in the moment. The root cause is that I have waited too long to get my massage and now I get to go through kick start phase again (which requires more time and attention) then to maintenance again. Maintenance is the place where I must consciously remind myself that the pain served a purpose and it was to put my needs on the calendar and on a massage table. I will choose to either go through the pain again or believe that I can shift my focus to something more productive. I am going to add it to my regular anchoring, just as I added reiki to my routine because I choose to feel lighter, happier, freer. Whatever I choose it will be because my desire to feel better has to be more powerful than the "too busy" to get the appointment in.
