4 Tricks to Ease Pain
 

4 Tricks to Ease Pain

Posted in HOROSCOPE ARTICLES on August 3, 2010
Provided by Alexandra Chauran
In ancient times, there were not only illnesses caused by something going wrong with the body. People also often had spiritual afflictions, which had effective treatment courses all of their own.

Even after modern science brought us Western medicine, we are still integrating spiritual healing, with many hospitals having a spiritual care department filled with trained chaplains to administer rites, prayers, and religious counseling.

If your heart or soul is "hurting" from what you feel is a physical, but possibly a spiritual, affliction, it is important to continue to receive medical care from qualified professionals, of course. A spiritual dilemma, for example, that causes you to be sad for months at a time may be an indicator of clinical depression. However, there are many spiritual remedies that can be applied to most situations, and can provide a quick pick-me-up if nothing else seems to do the trick.

Meditation

Prayer and meditation can be your first line of defense against whatever ails you. You can pray to be relieved of whatever you wish, or simply make prayers of gratitude part of your daily life so that you begin to take note of what joys are there for you. Meditation, in addition to being a great physical stress reliever and a way to lower blood-pressure, can offer deeper healing for issues that reside in your mind.

Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh tells a story about "how to discover our own refuge." He says that when a windstorm disrupts your house, you must first close the windows, then kindle the fire before you begin to tidy up the mess. If you did things in any other order, the wind might ruin your work, or the cold might distract you. Likewise, when you meditate, you shut your eyes, which are your windows, and begin to find your inner strength to begin the work on your life.

Rituals

Adding a bit of ritual to your regular spiritual practice can be very healing. Just as rites of passage are important to signify points in your life that are important to witness before you move on, you can perform rituals to mark what you want to begin in your life or what you want to leave your life forever.

Writing down wishes on pieces of paper and then burning them is a common practice. You can visualize what you've written disappearing forever, or being etched in your heart if it is something you wish to do.

House Cleansing

A house cleansing is a practice that is done in many cultures to rid your surroundings of negativity and invite a more healthy energy back inside. This can be as simple as literally cleaning your home while visualizing this energetic process.

Sprinkling salt around the perimeter of your home can offer a protective cleansing, while burning sage can help cleanse the air inside your home. You may already have many protective herbs in your kitchen, like garlic, to ward away negativity. You can also place a mirror on the door to reflect all ill-intent back to the source.

Accessories for Positive Energy

Inviting positive energy back in can be done with visualization and herbs as well. If you like, a visit to a gem shop can bring you beautiful crystals and stones that help as a talisman in your home or on your body. Holding a piece of hematite can ward off headaches and excessive energy from a stressful day. A piece of rose quartz can invite love. Tiger's eye can ward off the evil eye.

While spiritual remedies are no longer the only way that humans address their problems, they can still be an important part of the healing process. Just as you cannot separate your body from your mind, your spirit is also inextricably bound to your sense of self, and your health as a whole. When striving toward wellness, seek a balance of what is healing to your body, mind, and spirit.
