As the egoic mind begins to identify with a sense of self that is emotionally arrested in childhood, the pain-body energy will intensify. This trauma gets continually re-triggered every single time the pain-body justifies its existence by identifying with its wounded self. It’s as if the pain-body says, “I have been hurt by others and therefore I deserve to be angry.”
And so the pain-body is an energy field that re-experiences itself through negative emotions such as victimization, oppression, and a deep-seated, subconscious fear of impending doom. These feelings get reinforced by the situations that reoccur as a result of the pain-body’s ability to attract to it its own like energy. A typical pain-body host will consistently relive the very same emotions that became blocked during the forming of its childhood primal wound. In simpler words, these hosts are emotionally stuck in their distant past.
So the next step after you identify the childhood trauma is to work toward getting yourself “unstuck.” Now, as you bring in the power of presence and bring in a higher awareness into the pain-body, it can no longer seduce you into completely identifying with it. When you can observe the pain-body as it arises you will want to practice recognizing it as a separate entity. See it as being not who you are. That will be the beginning of your freedom from it.
Recognizing the pain-body when it becomes active in whatever form is crucial. With some, the pain-body exhibits a more active, aggressive-like pain, in other persons it is a passive form of victim-like pain such as with those with “Poor Me Syndrome.” There may be a tenseness or constriction in the muscles and so you will want to become aware of that. Or there may be a burning or tightness in the solar plexus or abdomen and so you become aware of that. Some may become consumed with rage is if they’re whole body was set on fire.
We are not resisting the pain-body or trying to get rid of it. In fact, that will only make it stronger. It tried fighting my pain-body for years by “attacking it” with a variety of different diets, treatments, an enduring a series of physiological and psychological examinations in a desperate attempt to stomp out my chronic illness. But non-acceptance to the pain didn’t work. My pain-body didn’t begin to dissolve until I completely surrendered to it. It’s as if you say, “Well, this is the way it is. And therefore I honor and respect that.” Only by practicing the power of presence will you be able to bring an end to the pain-body.
So by becoming a silent witness to the pain as it begins to take over your body, you are already beginning to transcend it and work toward its dissolution. Working in one-on-one sessions with an online spiritual life coach can be very helpful for you as you allow your pain-body to dissolve by becoming conscious of it whenever it surfaces.
