We learn from some religions that pain is necessary as a purification process for our spiritual growth.
We are conditioned to believe that pain comes into our life in various forms because of our actions. We keep on looking for a rational explanation, until we can make the pain acceptable to us and we find comfort in blaming ourselves or others for it.
We see pain as a punishment instead than a chance of transformation.
Pain can show us how our inner resources can blossom from our vulnerabilities, when we learn how to let go the blockages which are preventing our energy to flow. We are all on a path towards abundance, in order to celebrate our personal mission, manifesting the gifts available to us.
Is vulnerability the same as weakness?
“In our culture,” teaches Dr. Brené Brown, “we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty.”
We are scared of pain because we are scared of change.
Holding on to pain means to live a life with our eyes closed to all the possibilities of change, transporting pain one to another in order to heal our own.
If we bring pain into the world then the circle of pain will never end.
Pain is like a river which can take us from a place to an other if we can see it as a reflection of compassion. Detaching our pain and fear from our ego we will realize that it is not just about us.
We can feel the powerful connection one to another through pain and love.
We can choose to focus our intention on the expansion of our consciousness, allowing ourselves to create a space where from pain we can connect to collective wisdom.
“Let This Darkness Be a Bell Tower
Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,
what batters you becomes your strength.
Move back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.
In this uncontainable night,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.
And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Sonnets to Orpheus
I hope that you would like to join me on this guided meditation that I prepared to welcome light and love, connecting and supporting one to another in order to let go emotions and memories attached to our pain and guilt that come from our past.
All the emotions that we clear, nourish and carry with us, radiate and expand the space where we can grow and shine, in order to embrace our true higher self and sacred mission for our personal development, spiritual enlightenment and the benefit of the planet.
