What’s the Purpose of Chronic Pain?

The post answers a question for The Council about the purpose of chronic pain from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair. InDespair says they’ve suffered from cervical stenosis and fibromyalgia for about 10 years. They’ve been on the same medication for years, which they’ve now built up a tolerance to, and they’re in terrible pain every day. InDespair says they’re reluctant to speak to their doctor about the pain because they’re afraid the doctor will think they’re abusing their medication.

The Council asks why InDespair refuses to help them self by talking to their doctor. The pain is here as a lesson, but InDespair needs relief from medication before they can learn the lesson the pain is trying to teach. Fear is the reason they aren’t asking for this help. Reach out to your physician and explain your situation. When you receive medication that eases the pain, then you’ll be able to ask what lessons the pain has to teach you.

The reason for pain is that you aren’t allowing your life force to flow through you. When your life force isn’t allowed to flow freely through your body, pain is caused wherever you resist the life force. Focus on the areas of pain, acknowledge the pain, and know that it’s part of your current circumstances. You’ve brought this pain in to change your beliefs.

You create this pain to stop you from your every day living so you give this pain the time it needs to be experienced and to learn from it.

Find somewhere in your body where you aren’t experiencing pain, where there’s a feeling of wellness. Imagine this feeling of wellness spreading to the area where there’s pain and watch as this feeling of wellness grows throughout the body. As you believe you don’t need to experience pain, punishment, and guilt, your life force will flow throughout your body.

You bring pain into your life to change your beliefs and you grow spiritually as you begin to recognize you’re light, love, and joy. The Council asks you to take time every day and find parts of your body that feel well.

InDespair says they’ve never abused their medication, but for some reason they worry their doctor will assume the worst. The Council says to tune in to who you truly are as a spiritual being. You deserve your doctor’s help and you should ask for it. Don’t assume you’ll be labeled unkindly.

InDespair asks, “Why in the world would we choose chronic pain as a lesson, and how can I get past my fears?” The Council says we choose chronic pain to heal beliefs from past lives that we bring into this lifetime. We choose chronic pain for the purpose of changing these beliefs so we can grow from them. The pain will subside as you focus on the areas of well-being to help yourself.

One of the areas of pain is your neck, which is the back of your throat. Is there something you’re avoiding talking about? Do you keep opinions to yourself? Are you afraid to speak your truth? This will affect the throat chakra, which includes the back of the neck. Or have you said unkind things to people? This also will affect the neck area. Work on the neck chakra and all your chakras to get the energy flowing and allow your life force to move through you. If you do this you’ll begin to see a lessening of the pain.

The Council closes by stressing the importance of speaking with your physician about new medication. They also emphasize learning about the chakras and finding places in your body that feel well and doing visualizations that bring this well-being to the parts that hurt. Know you are an eternal spiritual being in your physical body. When you can do these things you’ll begin to experience relief.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for InDespair and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Love Can Overcome Pain

This post is inspired by questions from Jose who’s experienced chronic gastrointestinal pain for the last 5 months. Although he believes there are lessons to learn from this experience and trusts there is a higher purpose for his symptoms, his chronic pain is causing anxiety and depression and he wants to know why spirit is taking so long to tell him how to heal.

The Council says Jose’s spirit has created these symptoms and it’s his desire to come into this lifetime and figure out what this challenge is about. All of these symptoms are part of his soul’s plan to open him to other pathways, and he’s following this plan exactly as he intended.

The Council says the beginning of Jose’s healing is to think of his pain as part of who he is, rather than some horrible thing he needs to get rid of. This pain is there for Jose to accept and show him something. Start talking to the part of his body where he’s experienced these symptoms and tell them there’s a less painful way to find the answers you’re looking for.

The Council suggests Jose ask what this pain reminds him of and why has he created it. Make the pain his friend, not an enemy, because it is desperately trying to teach him something he desires to learn.

The Council asks Jose if he is sending love to the pain in his body, or if he’s just angry at it all the time. Know that this pain is there to help Jose and as he sends it more love, he’ll find a way to heal.

The Council says there is a life force continually being sent from spirit to you in your physical body to help you with your journey. This pain is a symptom of Jose’s physical body not accepting this life force. When Jose can picture this life force coming to him in any way he wants, he may notice parts of himself where this life force doesn’t flow easily. As he continues to allow this life force into these parts that previously resisted it, he will begin to heal.

If you’ve ever experienced a painful experience, listen to The Council’s entire 18-minute session to hear all their advice on letting love in.
