Our Path Towards BodyMind Self-Healing

Everyone here on Earth is fighting for survival. As part of living our lives, we are all seemingly penalized in one form or another as payment for the privilege of being alive, and this equates to pain. But some of us need to fight even more fiercely just to live!

For folks in chronic pain, we must always fight harder to live our lives than others who don’t know what it feels like to start every day with a detriment or handicap. But when we run away from how we feel and cover it up with narcotics or other drugs and alcohol, we are no longer in a relationship with our bodies; being detached from our bodies is being without emotion. This is what it must feel like to be a member of the walking dead.

Our lives are worth fighting for. If you don’t feel like fighting for your life, then this is the very first reason why you must learn to heal yourself. Everyone holds onto the hope that, one day soon, things will improve. This hope relies upon your heart, but you need to reach down and connect with it to receive it. How?

There are many, many ways to help people recover from trauma in the 21st century, and so in nine out of ten cases, your invisible wounds can be healed. There is always room for improvement. There’s more reason now than ever to H.O.P.E. self-healing is possible! (except in extreme cases of stage-4 disconnection from the self and bodymind.)

Learn to Believe in Yourself

It starts with belief in yourself. If you would be willing to trust yourself and listen to the guidance of your heart, you can find a way to reduce or otherwise learn to live with your pain. Whether this means learning to live life despite the pain or finding a path to the miracle of self-healing, it is entirely up to you. You must become determined you want to change and feel better, and the only place the motivation will come is from your heart. It means learning self-compassion.

You cannot hear your heart if you are drugged numb, or are coiled up so tightly that your pain is a whole bodymind pain. Perhaps your fibromyalgia represents body armor made up of the micro-spasms throughout your muscle tissues? Such unrelenting tension, which is ultimately a partial or full-body web of micro-spasms, is undoubtedly a result of childhood trauma between birth and age seven. The body of evidence for this is substantial.

Contrary to 20th-century beliefs, we now have many ways out of our pain without drugs and surgery. What I mean by “out of our pain” is a relative phrase, entirely dependent upon your perspective and circumstances. Many people have learned to live their lives, in spite of their pain. They are pioneering the courage it takes to face our pain, and learn to live with it in a way which isn’t as crippling.

The Science of MindBody

The evidence, as reported by dozens of respectable M.D.’s, Ph.D.’s, Physiologists, is that our bodies hold trauma in the cells. Your body remembers. Whether it was severe emotional trauma or severe physical trauma, these defining events from our lives continue to exist within our very cells. Not just the brain, but the entire body.

Whether emotional or physical, these events carried impact energy into our tissues. For people who are in chronic pain, impact energy stored in our bodies is manifesting itself as that pain. This stored impact energy, referred to as cellular memory, is what gets triggered when we lose control of ourselves. Hidden variables from our environment can cause abrupt changes in our thoughts and behaviors, without us being aware of it all until afterward.

The science of epigenetics has proven that our trauma experiences pass all the way to our grandchildren!

The only way such a thing is possible is if the body’s cells are writing experiential memory into our DNA strands as a long-term memory mechanism. The source of our worries lives within the very tissues of our flesh.

What this means is that what you’ve always known, and what you’ve been avoiding your entire life: the only way out of pain is walking through the veil of past traumatic events, sometimes by reliving painful memories; and sometimes by uncovering forgotten painful memories. Lucky for us, modern mind-body medicine takes the entire self+bodymind system into account.

The only way to return to a relationship with your body is to recover the ability to listen to it, to increase self-awareness. If you lack a good relationship with your bodymind, you are missing out on millions of signals it’s sending while trying to reach you. Our pain essentially represents our body’s screaming to release trauma, to look into horrors of our past and move through them. This can be done with a little help from modern mind-body science.

We Can’t Do It Alone

However, almost everyone needs help pushing through each threshold of recovery, and this is why social interaction and groups are so crucial to any possible recovery plan. With help, we can face our childhood traumas and face our fears. 

When we do not confront our pain, we experience more pain by running away from it. Traumatic events hold energy which can take control of our bodymind without our conscious awareness. Such events are made possible by a mechanism in our brain which shuts off or bypasses our conscious awareness even when we recall a painful incident. The cells are continually recording their experience, and trauma remains held within the cells. It explains why we’ll feel pain in different areas of our bodies.

This Ultimate Guide to BodyMind Self-Healing will help point you towards your path of self-healing. It contains a ton of practical information you can use right now to help relieve suffering for yourself and those you love.

What Letting Go Means

You’ve heard it said to “just let go,” but nobody ever mentions what that means. How can we “just let go” and how do we know if it has happened?

In my experience, once I have reviewed my traumatic memories enough times, whether during meditation or during a therapy session, the energy is either dissipated or otherwise it moves into a place where it can no longer bother me. This is what letting go has felt like; the release of trauma is always a major relief!

Also, I relate the pain of physical rehabilitation as similar to the pain of mental rehabilitation: rehab is painful, whether you’re learning to walk after an accident, or learning to reconnect with the world after your tour of combat.

The only way to let go is by facing the pain head-on. And when we finally look at what has always remained just out of view, we re-classify the events by moving the case files from the subconscious and into conscious awareness. Upon full evaluation of our bad incidents, they no longer hold power over our thoughts or actions.

We thereby deflate the traumatic grip of painful events from our childhood. Eventually, this deflation can become permanent. We reassign the impact of those events through the process of bringing our awareness to the pain within our bodies, our cells.

When we learn how to listen to our bodymind, self-healing can begin. The calmness of body and mind is where self-awareness resides.
