Do you feel any pain or tension in the body?
Pain and discomfort has one purpose: The body is asking for your attention.
Often when we experience a pain or discomfort in the body, our first reaction is to resist it and do what ever it takes to make it go away. Instead, give the body what it is asking for: ATTENTION.
Close your eyes and put your full attention into the area of discomfort. FEEL IT without resistance….without trying to make it go away. Allow it.
It may take a little time, but by give the body the attention it is asking for, not only will the pain begin to lessen, the body will begin to heal.
Just as we give a child attention when he or she is crying….and not try to stifle their expression….so too should we give our body attention when it cries for it.
