You can use this as a technique for dissolving physical pain in any part of your body.
- When you are faced with physical pain, just witness the feeling of pain in that part of your body in a relaxed way.
- You will see that first, there might be a surge of pain, but soon the pain reduces to a spot and disappears.
- What happens is that the moment you get hurt physically, energy supplied by your own body intelligence rushes to that part to heal it. The energy rush is what you label ‘pain’.
If you witness the energy rushing and healing in a relaxed way, the pain disappears and healing happens. If we just understand this, we will not resist and suffer the pain. We will cooperate with the natural healing energy of the body.
Your own inner ambulance system is what you call pain!
The witnessing focus that you give the pain will make you realize that you are more than a mere body. You will touch your energy base and realize that you are more than the body-mind.
Watch the pain intensely but without attaching the word ‘pain’ and the meaning ‘suffering’ to it. For a brief moment the pain may seem to intensify but soon it will dissolve.
Actually, the body is intelligent enough to allow energy to flow to the part of the body that is asking for energy. But you resist that energy flow by labeling it as ‘pain’. Just allow the energy to flow by infusing full awareness into that part of the body. Just look at the energy flow with curiosity. Be a complete outsider. Do not participate in the process. Just let the energy flow to that area and work on it. You will see it heal.
