For the last eight years, I have been deeply interested in the causes and symptoms of stress, particularly physical pain. Stress-induced pain can be experienced in almost any part of the body. Some persons get headaches and migraines, while others get aching arms and legs. Still others experience pain in the neck, shoulder and back, while many have recurring pain in the stomache.
As individuals, we can react in both unique and partly common ways to long-term stress. While some persons react primarily with psychological symptoms, such as anxiety, irritability, and low patience, others react more physiologically with digestive issues, migraine and body aches, etc.
A little more than a year ago, I had a very challenging situation in my life on a family level. In a moment of deep despair and hopelessness, I kneeled down on the kitchen floor, folded my hands and asked God for help: “Please God, help me”. Then, in that very moment, I heard a voice, saying: “Let go”. It was in English, although I am Swedish. And the words were those two only and with the sound of a male voice.
MindShift Coaching has developed a new meditation called “My Safe Space”. It is an exercise intended to bring awareness to any tension in your body and the underlying reasons hereof. Also, this exercise is an opportunity for you to give yourself a moment of deep relaxation. A full body relaxation, in turn, can support profound healing at the physical, mental, emotional and energetic level.
As children, we are not able to make sense of the world in the way that an adult would; also, our worldview is centered around our Self. Therefore, we inevitably explain any event in terms of our existing understanding of who we are, including our self-worth. In our childhood, we thus adopt a range of beliefs about ourselves and the world. Over time, these beliefs become “self-actualizing”.
In the future, healing is most likely to happen through multiple and parallel modalities that are holistic by nature and that recognize our body not only as a mechanical system but also as made up of subtle energies (that “work” through several energy systems). Such new healing modalities already exist, but will be found, explored and applied by more and more people and health centres worldwide.
