I breathed a deep sigh of relief and gave gratitude for the opportunity being presented to me-- the chance to let go of the old belief that I have no control over my body and the space to witness the ever-present healing power that my body holds. Moments later, my felt the tension moving up from my neck and out through the top of my head and later I realized that without pain, there would be no opportunity to experience the magic of relief.
Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, you are choosing to be exactly where you are right now. If the pain of where you are were to become great enough, you would move, physically or emotionally. But oftentimes we're afraid to step outside of our comfort zone, no matter how uncomfortable, because it's our "known hell." The certainty of the known is typically seemingly less scary than the uncertainty of entering into the unknown.
I get that. I too lived there for a long time. And then one day, I chose to do something different.
