Celebrations & Back Pain – A Surprising Connection

Celebrations & Back Pain – A Surprising Connection

Back Pain, especially lower back pain, often coincides with celebrations. Anniversaries, Christmas, New Year, birthdays, retirement, children leaving home, becoming a parent or a grandparent.

Deep Emotions

Whether we are happy or sad about them, these are deeply emotional occasions. When you look at the emotional aspects of lower back pain you begin to understand why it can so easily be triggered by what seem to be happy occasions.

It no coincidence that back pain often flares up at these times. Milestones can stir up such deep emotion that it would be strange if some part of our body didn’t let us know!

These occasions confront us with our own mortality. They can bring up deep layers of fear and insecurity about what lies ahead or about our standing in life. The lower back is often where we store feelings of being unsupported and the weight of responsibility.

Emotional Issues Connected With Back Problems

Our lower backs are where we hold financial fears, unresolved childhood anger, feelings of victim-hood, limitation, negativity and fears about our future. Issues of security, isolation, survival and being able to support ourselves (physically & emotionally) are often stored in the lower back.

These are serious issues of survival, what some may call Root Chakra issues. We ignore them at our peril. Dr. John Sarno MD, a traditionally trained professor of New York University School of Medicine, came to the same conclusion. After many years of treating patients with back pain using standard remedies, he continued to get poor results until he realised that 88% of his patients also had stress-related problems.

The Emotional Connection & Healing

When you look at the emotional issues connected with the lower back, the fact that events such as anniversaries, birthdays, retirement or children leaving home can trigger it makes perfect sense. When you view pain from an emotional perspective it always makes sense!

If you suffer from lower back pain, look for the trigger. Think back to when it began. What was going on in your life at the time? How were you feeling about what was going on? It doesn’t have to be anything earth shattering, often our triggers are something quite ordinary which is linked to something hidden deeper.

Our What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations (and our free transcripts) help you heal and clear out the painful old emotions which are being triggered and gently quieten your inner-critic.  They help you relax, give your mind & body a much needed break and ease or even clear physical pain. The attitude of loving kindness and gratitude towards your body you are guided to can only enhance any other healing methods you are using.

We receive many reports of how much our meditations have helped ease back pain. Five of these remarkable stories are covered in Courageous Journeys Through Back Pain

5 Courageous Journeys Through Back Painaffirmations for Back Pain

Five remarkable stories of drug-free, surgery-free, pain relief from different types of back pain.

 

This article is dedicated with love, gratitude and respect to all my wonderful, courageous clients. Thank you for your courage and for sharing your warrior’s journey.

I have gone from dragging myself across the floor every morning in complete agony and dosing myself up on painkillers, to being able to walk completely unaided and pain free and drug free. My family and friends have always known me to have a bad back. The condition has affected me since childhood. But over the last few months it became progressively worse until I was unable to walk unaided. Each morning I would crawl on my hands and knees to the living room, where I would lie on the floor waiting for strong prescribed pain medication to take effect. The medication always makes me drowsy and unable to drive or work as well as I would like to. One morning, while lying on the floor, I knew the situation urgently had to change and I needed to find an alternative solution. This is when I discovered Barbara Clark’s back healing meditation. Barbara’s voice is beyond being soothing and gentle. When she speaks it feels like being deeply comforted and her voice feels like warm blankets of energy wrapping me up and shielding me from pain. I can honestly say that the results of Barbara’s meditation are quite simply astounding. I have gone from dragging myself across the floor every morning in complete agony and dosing myself up on painkillers, to being able to walk completely unaided and pain free and drug free. I highly recommend Barbara’s meditations. Thank you so much Barbara.” Steve Wentworth

“I have had back pain most of my life. I literally felt the pain leave my back and become transformed to love and light and forgiveness.thank you thank you thank you!” Russele Snow

My back pain is gone. After suffering from upper back pain for the last 4 weeks I purchased the Full Back set of recordings. After listening to the Upper Back recording my back pain is gone, would recommend this set to anyone suffering from back problems. Thanks to Barbara and all her hard work in putting these recordings together, I would say well worth the effort.” K. Russel.

I felt about 60-70 percent better!! My goodness!  I must say I have experienced great improvement already from your wonderful recordings!  Your voice is so soothing, as is the music, and each time, I definitely reach what I call “zero point”== a VERY relaxed and deeply rejuvenating place!  And I am happy to report that every time I get up afterward, there is definite improvement in the pain and stiffness in my back!!  I must say that I was at quite a low point last night, after two weeks of attempting to help myself feel better, seeing energy healers here in Hout Bay, South Africa, and resting and praying, and doing my own brand of energy work (MAP, Reiki, visualizations), and STILL in pain — actually it had gotten much worse again.  It was SUCH a gift to get the recordings and be able to listen to them last night (and twice today)!  Sometimes you just need a little help from a friend, you know?

I slept so well, and this morning, I felt about 60-70 percent better!!  I am also impressed with your deep insight into what can be held in our back– so many of the statements resonated so strongly with me!  I could feel my root chakra opening and the energy moving powerfully as I released those many, many emotions and beliefs– and I will continue to do so.
 
Well, thank you again for all you BE and all you share!  Please feel free to use any or all of the above in a testimonial in any way you choose!
Much gratitude and love,
Leslie

Do You Have A Bad Back?

tn_LowerbackbackwardsDo You Have A Bad Back?

 

After my article, Are You Burying Your Head in the Sand?, was published many people asked how they could get themselves out of the way and allow their bodies to heal. How could they connect, appreciate and love their bodies more?

We are all unique and there is no one definitive answer. I hope this article provides a bridge to help people understand the importance of self-talk and beliefs, and move towards having a more loving, appreciative relationship with their bodies.

Much has been written about the interconnection of emotion and physical dis-ease. And, although each of us is unique, it is possible to generalise where a particular emotion will manifest a physical symptom if it is not dealt with. Our language gives us clues as to the truth of this. For example, have you ever said, “So and so is a pain in the neck”? Or “He/she has the weight of the world on his/her shoulders”?

Dr. John Sarno MD, a traditionally trained professor of New York University School of Medicine, came to the same conclusion. After many years of treating patients with back pain using standard remedies, he continued to get lousy results until he realised that 88% of his patients also had stress-related problems.

When he started to teach his patients that tension, not structural problems, was to blame for their pain, he started to see good results for the first time in his career. Andrew Weil MD, also traditionally trained, calls himself, “a great believer in Dr Sarno’s ideas”.
