It’s always amazing to witness the effects emotions have on our health. I met Mary, a 61-year-old woman, who experienced chronic pain that haunted her for years. Despite taking prescription painkillers, she lived in overwhelming pain. A very concerned daughter accompanied her to my hotel room while I was on tour in the USA in 2011. The mother had been admitted to the hospital the night before because of the excruciating pain.
Mary winced as she slowly climbed onto my treatment table. She lay flat on the table, staring at the ceiling with a vacant look of hopelessness and despair. “Let’s begin,” I said, and I connected with Mary’s energy field. Her archetype was a ‘Martyr’. This indicates that Mary sacrifices herself by helping others and places herself last. It also indicates she associates her self-worth to her suffering, equating the level of suffering with how much she gives to the people around her. Her negative life pattern of ‘Letting Go’ showed that Mary needed to let go of hurt and resentments.
Resentment causes blocks healing
As I proceeded, I felt a huge energetic block, as if I was trying to push down a brick wall. Even focusing all of my energy, I couldn’t connect to her problem. I then asked Mary to rate her pain level. She responded that it increased from 10 out of 10 to 11 out of 10. It seemed things had gotten worse than when we had started. “Holy crap batman,” I mutter to myself, “this is not going to plan!” I paused the healing process to ask Mary about her relationships.
As we talked through the family dynamics, I discovered Mary held resentment towards four family members. Each of her resentments rated 10 on a scale of 10. The pain levels matched her level of bitterness.
I continued to describe the meaning of her martyr archetype – giving to others before you give to yourself and allowing others to disrespect you. I then followed up with the concept of ‘letting go’ which was her primary negative life pattern. It was clear as day that Mary had made pain and resentment her constant companion. She realised she had overgiven and not taken care of herself or needs. These patterns were embedded at the age of seven and had continued in her close relationships.
The power of forgiveness and energy healing
For the pain to shift it became clear that Mary had to let go of her resentment and take responsibility of overgiving and sacrificing herself for others. We talked through the forgiveness process where I represented the people that had caused her pain in her childhood. I apologized for her pain and suffering. Then I asked her to forgive and let go of the resentments in her current relationships. After she had finished releasing the resentment towards her fourth family member, her pain completely disappeared.
From previous experience with similar scenarios, I knew intuitively that this miraculous change would only be temporary as the pain was training her to permanently change her mindset. This would take time as her negative conditioning had been going on for over 50 years. I asked Mary to reflect on the moment and for her daughter to take careful note of what had just occurred. I wanted them to understand that Mary had to stop over-giving which caused her resentment and pain.
Not long after her experience without the pain, the pain soon returned to 10 out of 10.
The courage required to change for some people only comes when they are fed up with their pain and circumstances. The pain was showing Mary that she needed to do the emotional work in her life – to realise that she deserved love and respect and that she was the one who had to give it to herself first. Mary’s pain then progressively dissipated as she worked through her issues.
The time with Mary was a life lesson I will never forget. It still amazes me that the message came with such clarity.
