Do you suffer from chronic pain, stress or anxiety?
I have just been reading a book and doing a workbook called Zero Pain Now, by Adam Heller. I wish I had of known this stuff years ago!!!


As you may know I suffer with pain from injuries, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Although the regime I am on helps to control the pain, I was faced with constant breakthrough pain which became very debilitating. Since reading the book and doing the exercises in the workbook I have found that a lot of my pain is related to my emotions. This made sense when I read it because when I am stressed angry or upset, the pain is definitely amplified. 


But even more important, is that I now have a way to deal with it and that is not by stuffing it down or bottling it up.


Following the technique shared by Adam I have been able to release my emotions when they occur. I can acknowledge them and through his technique I can let them go. I have discovered that when I acknowledge and release my emotions my pain level decreases.


I am finding I am able to accomplish so much more in my day and I also feel like I have some control over the pain which for someone with long term pain, this is incredible.


By doing the workbook I have also learned many things about myself that I hadn’t realized before.


For me this is an ongoing journey, but I wanted to encourage you to check out his book at http://zeropainnow.com/


I just wish I had known about this years ago.

This is how I feel right now, like a rose bud who has found some warmth and light and is just beginning to bloom.







Living with Pain

Pain is my constant companion, albeit an unwelcome one. It invades my being and dictates my life. It is happy when it is in control and when it’s not it strikes out hard and fast.

I find that with my photography I am able to ignore it for a little while as I become totally absorbed in what I am doing, totally involved in the beauty and majesty of nature, but then as if in revenge for being ignored it uncoils like a snake and strikes with fangs that send pain shooting through my body and then it’s poison spreads until I am laid low for days on end and then as if satisfied that it is no longer being ignored and that I know it is in control it is happy to slink off into the corner, never going away, but making sure I stay within it’s bounds, resting often, only doing little bits at a time, living a restricted and frustrated life, then it is happy and allows me to go along with just enough pain to remind me not to become too involved or too enthusiastic about life.

One day I believe the pain will be gone, this is my hope, the thing that keeps me going. I stay within its bounds while exploring every avenue to rid myself of it. I have tried accapuncture, chiropractors, meditation, reiki, cortisone injections, wearing a brace, palates, physiotherapy, Jo-ray, Osteotherapy, cranium therapy, quantum physics (SCIO machine) as well as taking all manner of natural tablets and everything the doctors are able to give me. Some things help and make life more bearable, some cause painful reactions which reduce me to tears and wrack my body with more pain, but as long as I can draw breathe I will not stop trying.

I have been to psychologist and psychiatrists, I do EFT (tapping), exercise and gentle walking as much as possible & try to include time at the beach in every day. I visit a cranium therapist every month and this keeps me believing that one day I will be pain free. I have a friend who gives me free Jo-ray every week when I am at home, the only time I am totally pain free is in the last few minutes of my Jo-ray and cranium therapy treatments I also go on an SCIO machine which has been a godsend, it helps me to stay sane.

I have found that just to place my feet in the water and look at the vastness of God’s creation gives me hope and solace. One day, somehow, some-way I will be pain free!!!
