Why Lower back pain often coincides with Christmas & New Year!
Lower back pain often coincides with Christmas, New Year, anniversaries, birthdays, retirement or even children leaving home. These occasions confront us with our own mortality and 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, of the weight of responsibility. Issues of security, isolation, survival and self-support are often stored in the lower back.
Our lower backs are where we hold financial fears, unresolved childhood anger, feelings of victim-hood, limitation, negativity and fears about our future. If we don’t release these emotional issues, sometimes even surgery can’t help. 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.
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.
If you suffer from lower back pain, think back to when it began. What was going on in your life at the time? The Lower Back carries feelings of being unsupported financially and/or emotionally. It is also where we hold feelings of wanting to “back out” of relationships or situations.
Our What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations help you heal and clear out the old painful emotions which are being triggered, gently quieten your inner-critic. Relax and reduce, ease or even clear physical pain. The attitude of loving kindness and gratitude you are guided to feel towards your body can only enhance any other healing methods you are using.
We receive many reports of how much our meditations have helped ease back pain and many of them are on this site. Five of these remarkable stories are covered in Courageous Journeys Through Back Pain
In A Courageous Journey Through Back Pain In The African Bush! Leslie narrates her amazing story in her own voice.
“ 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
“I can move without pain. Today suddenly I had back pain and I found you. Thank you again and again, my back is a bit better and I can move without pain”. Warmest regards, Nalini.
“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“. Kathy Russell.
“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?
