I've been noticing with the shift of energies and veils being lifted as of late, the majority of us are really. going. through. it. (myself included). So, I wanted to share some insight that may help you through your rough time. Let's get into the wonderful, emotional pain body!
1. Now, what is the pain body?
Defined by Eckart Tolle, it's an accumulation of painful life experience that was not fully faced and accepted at the time of the pain. It leaves behind an energy form of emotional pain. It comes together with other energy forms from other instances, and over the years you've created an entity consisting of old emotion.
2. how it's affecting you
Not being aware of this pain body can take control of your emotional and mental body... which can leave you in a consistent loop of past painful experiences (ex: unhealthy relationships, losing a job, never being financially secure) and project them. This is why you may be feeling like "damn I can't seem to get this right, shit is always going wrong or happening to me!" Continuing to feed the pain body (more negative thoughts/emotions) will align you with that frequency and draw these experiences to you like a MAGNET! And I think we've all had enough of that shit.
3. So, how to deal with the Pain Body
First step is of course, awareness. Recognizing that emotion, that feeling once a situation arises. We're all familiar with what negative energy feels like (fear, anger, hurt, depression etc.) so once you start feeling those energies come to surface, become PRESENT in that moment. Remember, the only time is NOW, so being present allows that negative energy to flow and be RELEASED. A simple way to do this is to quiet your Mind (zero thought) and focus on your breathing. With every inhale you acknowledge the pain you feel and every exhale visualize the pain being released from your body. Practice is always key.
