Healing Perspectives – Part 3

Dr. TonyNSA

In the previous week, we looked at how the perspective of relationships is a great source of energy and how when we’re stuck in that perspective, we can often feel triggered or hooked.

This week, I’d like to examine with you the perspective of Stuckness. It’s not a “nice” place to be, it’s not meant to be. We will often get a feeling of frustration that is meant to tell us that we’re stuck. And that we building energy to take action. But what action?

When we end up having some sort of pain in our bodies or restriction, we can feel frustrated and attribute that frustration to the pain or restriction. After all, the pain or restriction is keeping us from living our lives the way we want to. It could be keeping us from doing the things that we like to do, or the things that are good for us, like exercise.

What if the pain or restriction you’re feeling isn’t making you feel frustrated, what if the pain or restriction was amplifying the frustration that was already there?

You may ask, “why would I be feeling frustrated?” Well, that’s the million dollar question.

This is where my job comes in. My job is not to “take the pain away” or to be a natural aspirin. My job is to help you discover why you’d be feeling frustrated and to help you free yourself of the jail that you’re in.

What jail?

How often have you known better but didn’t listen? How often did you deny your essential nature and opt to please someone else? When did you say yes, when you really wanted to say no. How often have you not trusted yourself? Every time we do this, we lay another brick in the wall of a prison. We develop tension in our bodies that becomes the status quo after some time. Our bodies can get so tense and twisted that they finally reach the point where chronic pain sets in as the body’s last resort to try to get us to pay attention.

Pain and frustration are meant to interrupt the life that we’re living to help us find the life that we’re meant to live: A life where we trust ourselves, a life where we listen to our essential nature, where we take our inner child and be there for them rather than shunning them. A life where we take action from an authentic place inside us, despite letting someone down, saying no to someone, regardless that we may be judged.

This is a life free of tension (and pain and frustration). There is an exercise that I can teach you, where you can learn to free yourself of the ties that bind you, the jail that you’ve created for yourself.

I will be teaching this exercise, as well as others that explore the perspectives of connection and relationship, at Rise and Shine on June 1st from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. I hope you can join me!
