I would really like to start a new topic on something I don't see much of in here....
I strongly believe most of all our pain can really be cut down, if not eliminated by strong, persistent, relentless, unwavering POSITIVE thinking. Not just "oh, sure I'll pretend that everything is just dandy" I mean SERIOUS- "I love my happy, healthy, HEALED body" regardless of what is going on- kind of positive thinking. This is so helpful when trying to heal from physical pain. Keep yourself laughing! Keep yourself smiling, make yourself feel beautiful, put on some lipstick! Or a nice shirt for you men out there ^_^ Watch "The Secret" or anything uplifting, look at old pictures of yourself and instead of being sad, be happy and think to yourself "Damn, I still got it!"
This is important!!! All this talk about our pain- pain this, pain that, suffering, miserable, hurting, crying--it just keeps us in that condition!!! The mind is very strong and the body is strong too. The body regenerates it's entire system within 7-10 years- THE BODY CAN HEAL ITSELF! If my brain is telling me to type all this out, my brain can also tell my body that I am in horrible pain. The mind is an amazing thing that has this ability to send out such a force of energy with each and every thought. Yes, there might be pain, but we have to release our chains from it! You can't hand yourself over to it! You don't surrender to some idiot off the street that says "Hey yeah, can I spray paint your face blue?" would you?!!?! OF COURSE NOT! You'd probably give them a really dirty look and say "Get out of my face you weirdo!!!" Same goes for the PAIN! You have the power to self heal and you know it!! Don't worry about how long it takes, how it works, when it's working, JUST FOCUS!!! Focus all your precious, powerful energy on healing! Let the doctor worry and stress, let the medicine help in conjunction to your healing, stay focused on being AWESOME!!!!! If you can, the moment you feel some sort of relief -go a little while longer without the medicine! Feel SUPERIOR to the pain and the medication!
I'm sure there will be times when you will have weak moments, you are human and I have weak moments too, moments of hopelessness, debilitating pain and frustration. Extreme anger or exhaustion, a moment where I just want to GIVE UP and I might even post about it. But that's ok. It's OK to acknowledge it or vent about it, but to constantly keep talking about it? Keeps us in that prison! NO! We can't keep putting that out there if we don't want it anymore! Even the thought of NOT WANTING this pain ATTRACTS this pain because we are putting so much energy into THIS PAIN! NO THANKS! I WANT TO BREAK FREE!!!!
I AM FIGHTING BACK! AND EDITED
, I'M GOING TO KICK IT'S EDITED
!!! LOL!! The only way to STOP this pain and stop ATTRACTING more of this pain is to REPLACE this pain with LOVE. Love your body, LOVE your "HEALED, HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL body" and forget the pain. As much as you possibly can, FORGET the pain (obviously if there is something serious, then indeed seek medical help) but you know what I'm talking about! Forget the pain you always feel all the time, who cares! Yes you know it's there, why keep talking about it?! Why nurture and feed into this stupid pain that we don't even want anymore?! It's like a weed, if you don't want it to keep growing, why would you keep watering it?!!?! Your thoughts are like the water! Forget about the weeds, go and water the beautiful roses that are wilting over there- THEY need attention, NOT THE WEEDS!!! ^_^
I REFUSE to let this push ME down! It only makes me stronger. It makes me feel MORE ALIVE and motivates me to kick harder. I have been through some tough times in my life, I have felt excruciating pain more than enough times and now it's TIME for me to look pain in the eye and say EDITED
Please don't let it weight you down, don't let it beat you down, don't let pain win, YOU ARE MUCH MORE STRONGER THAN THIS and you better start believing in it!!!!! Write to me if you need some support, some motivation or inspiration, I will do my best to help!!
Seek the positive in everything!
"If there were no darkness, the stars would not shine as bright."
Love & light to you! XXO!
~ah yes, in case you're wondering "Oh yeah well what does she suffer from if she's so damn cheery ¬_¬ Alright well, I have severe pain in my thoracic spine for 5 years now, probably nerve damage and doctors are still trying to figure it out. I have an L5/S1 bulging torn disc. Neck pain/stiffness, along with picks of tingling numbing pain down both legs and feet, I have extreme tenderness in thighs, buttocks and tailbone and weakness when I walk. PFFFTH. Fughetaboutit! I FEEL GREAT! XD And no, it's not the drugs, LOL! It's my ability to KICK <span class="post-color-blue">EDITED. The ability to do some healing of my own! And so far, so good!
You know, I used to be a dancer. A pretty damn good one too. I was also a model and just starting to live my life and do all of these amazing, wonderful things like playing in a band and performing on stage, being a part of a music video or a documentary. Believe me, I've had my moments of feeling utterly devastated, losing 6 years of my life now -the best years of my 20's- to this EDITED
, and crying about how "I can never dance like this again."
Well, I'm over it. That doesn't help me. In fact it defeats the purpose of healing. I've had 2 car accidents and kidney stones 4 times in my life. A little minor surgery but no major ones -THANK GOD!- and lots of good injuries. No broken bones, well I don't really count my nose LOL.. I've been abused and homeless, raped several times, in and out of foster homes but still, I remain strong. Every time I come back from it, I am so much wiser and stronger than before. I am also much more compassionate and understanding with others who have had or is still having serious pain. Even though I might have the exact same condition as someone else, I will never FULLY know their pain because our feelings of pain and how we react to pain will never be exactly the same, but I'll tell you what, I can understand it. I CAN put myself in their place and say, "I know how you feel." and I truly can relate to it. We must remember though, we DO have the ability to heal. To be amazingly positive and to overcome what was once thought of as impossible or unthinkable. For some, it might take longer, for others it might be easier. It all depends on your energy and how strongly you believe.
We are all made up of energy and every thought you have is an intense, ball of energy. Your emission of energy doesn't stop at the skull, it's sent out to the Universe! Just like the vibe you feel when you walk into a room, your energy can be felt by others. Be careful not to doubt yourself so much, don't feel hopeless or give up. Be happy to be ALIVE! Be grateful for what you have and how wonderful life really is for you. Be grateful we have medicine! (when we can actually get it from doctors who are not EDITED
to do their jobs of course ;p) But most of all believe you ARE that powerful. You deserve to be happy and healthy so don't let ANYTHING get in your way! Especially your own negative thoughts! Squash them like you would the pain that you feel! Break it with your Positive Hammer! Or nun-chuck that pain in the EDITED
like Bruce EDITED
Lee! HIEEEE-YAH!!!! LMAO! I am SUCH a dork! I hope I made you laugh.. or at least smile ^_^ :::GentleHugs::: XXO!EDITEDStandards agreement and posting rules
