Letting Go of Grief Eases Severe Pain
Neck Pain, Fibromyalgia or Deep Grief & Trauma?
I am often asked if I have a meditation for this condition or that condition. Although the What Your Body Wants to Hear series is pretty comprehensive, it doesn‘t cover every physical condition. It does cover most emotional issues though. Very often I can recommend one based on what emotional issues the physical condition is connected with. For example (among other issues) lung issues are often linked with grief, diabetes with self-love, inflammation with anger, kidney issues with shame, neuralgia with guilt etc. So using a meditation for the specific emotional issues can often affect the physical which is obviously what happened for this lady.
The following is a genuine letter I received from a lady who’d used my What Your Body Wants To Hear, Release Grief & Trauma Healing guided meditation. To protect her privacy, I’ll call her Mary. Once again, it seems to prove that when we let go of painful emotions our body can heal itself without physical manipulation or medication. Scripts for all my meditations are freely available for you to read, tap along with or even record for yourself on this site.
With my love, Barbara
“For two days over the weekend just gone, I was in agony, I had severe pain in both sides of my neck and at the base of my skull, I thought it was due to a flare up of my fibromyalgia. So I put hot packs on my neck and took the max. dose of painkillers. I began to think I would have to see my chiropractor again!
Anyway like I told you in my last email I’d downloaded your meditations and it was that same night that I was guided to listen to your meditation on Grief & Trauma. I started to play it and as it continued I burst into tears and just kept sobbing….What a release!
I knew I was letting go of the Grief & Trauma that had been building up since my beloved husband passed over two years previous. And the things you mentioned on the meditation I really identified with and I was a little taken aback as I hadn’t realised I was holding onto such beliefs!
And recently I’d left a job where I’d been bullied and was still holding onto a lot of resentment and unforgiveness towards my ex-colleagues and over the last few years many of the jobs I have undertaken, had left me feeling disappointed, hurt and lacking in confidence. So I think some of these emotions were also released!
After the tears I felt as though a weight had lifted from me and a lot of the pain in my neck and at the base of my skull had GONE! And that night I slept soundly which was wonderful as the previous two nights I’d hardly slept due to the agonising pain.
Really helping as part of treatment for PTSD it’s going really well at night sadly still having flashbacks but this app helps to calm after…so glad I’ve got this tool. ..everyone should have it just for the days life throws you off track be it a day week month or longer. ..just amazing. Gill Young

Positive affirmations are great, but many people found their old, negative, self limiting beliefs resurfaced time after time no matter how often they affirmed that they’d gone. This is because they hadn’t cleared out the subconscious blocks which do now allow positive affirmations to truly “sink in”. These are the blocks our What Your Body Wants To Hear guided meditations allow you to clear. They clear the resistance and allow the positive affirmations to work.

There are numerous reasons for headaches. But in general they are your body’s way of telling you you are going too fast, doing too much and overloading your circuits. You need to take some time out and relax the pressure!
I think my dear friend Chris put it perfectly when she wrote “Oh, Barbara! I just completed listening to the mp3 for headache and migraine. It is about so much more than head pain. You’ve managed to include every kind of negativity we, often unknowingly, carry within ourselves. Truly this is a whole body healing experience. And you have artfully included healing of the mind, emotions, and spirit as well. This is a sacred work”. It really IS about more than head pain, it is about holding on to far too much pressure, expectation and stress.
With every breath I take, I am sending love and gratitude to every single cell in my body! Yes! Yes” Yes!
With every breath I take I am sending, love, gratitude and healing to my head!

“Aren’t the releasing and clearing statements going to bring me more of what I don’t want?”
People have asked me if listening to and allowing the releasing statements in my guided meditations in to their subconscious minds will bring them more of what they don’t want as described in many Law of Attraction teachings.
Some Law of Attraction teachings set people up to be frightened of having even a tiny negative thought and I believe this is a mistake.
As some wise spiritual teachers tell us, “You cannot be in the light by being in denial of the darkness”.* In other words, if you speak positive words but hold negative beliefs, the positive words will be at best, much less powerful.
My background in Emotional Freedom Technique taught me that although we may have or be manifesting an issue or dis-ease that is not who we are!
Louise L Hay says, “You will never create health by talking or thinking about illness” and that is true. But there is a huge difference between stating a problem briefly with the intention to clear and release it and dwelling on it, complaining endlessly about it, joining groups of like minded people to continue talking about it or building your life around it.
You CAN heal. You CAN change your thoughts but please be gentle with yourself as you learn to turn your negative thoughts and words into positive ones. Don’t be afraid if a negative thought crosses your mind or a negative word passes your lips. The fear will give it more power and anchor it in to reality. Just be aware of it and let it pass. Remind yourself that kind of thinking is your old habit, you are now creating new habits.
And lastly, if part of you is ill or in dis-ease. Don’t get angry or blame it, treat it with gentleness and love as you would a sick child or puppy.
*If anyone can remind me who said this, please let me know. I know it, but can’t place it at the moment. Thank you.
They say we teach that which we most need to learn and I believe that’s true. So many healers and teachers set out to heal themselves then find themselves teaching others. That’s just how it seems to work.
I have always been my own guinea pig, my own experiment. Before I recommend any therapy or teacher you can rest assured I’ve tried it myself.
The other day I had an interesting lesson. Something I’d overlooked and not used my own process or teachings on – my fingers!
When I get cold, my fingers turn numb and white. It can be quite painful when they warm up and the feeling comes back. It also freaks people out when they see it. I first remember it happening when I was 16 and although people have given me all kinds of dire warnings, I am still around to tell the tale.
At one point when I moved from a centrally heated house to one where the only heating was an open fire and I had to get coal and wood in no matter what the weather, my fingers were really bad and I took Ginko biloba and Ginger to great effect.
Over the years I kind of forgot about it but the weather was bitingly cold. My gloves were wet from throwing the ball for Finn and my fingers were frozen.
It suddenly dawned on me – talk to them! Not rocket science considering my work and very surprising that I hadn’t thought of it before, because I truly do live what I teach – usually :).
I apologised to my fingers for forgetting about them and leaving them out in the cold, literally!
I reminded myself that my fingers are part of me and thanked them. I reminded myself that my body knows how to send blood to my fingers. I asked my body to send more blood to warm my fingers up. I envisaged warm, healthy, loving blood being pumped to my fingers. I welcomed my fingers back in to the fold, apologised and thanked them. I can’t say how long it took, but it wasn’t long before they started to warm up. When I took the wet gloves off my fingers were perfectly pink.
Almost immediately my toes felt cold. I have never had a problem with them before, but they seemed to want to get in on the act and have loving thoughts and warm blood directed to them. I simply repeated the process and warmed them up too.
Is there a part of you that you are leaving out in the cold?
Might it benefit from some love, kind thoughts and words?
