Reduce stress and meditate. Stay heart centered and be in the moment, stop negative and stressful thoughts and thoughts about your pain. Do deep breathing exercises in which you breathe directly into the heart and abdomen and focus on each breath.
Pain is low vibration energy. To help reduce pain, it is important to cultivate inner peace and peace of mind and raise your vibrations. You do this by being in the moment, being happy, having fun, focused on enjoying life and the positive details of work and errands and doing things that make you happy. Here is a visualization exercise that you can do to raise your vibrations to shake of the low vibrations of pain:
Sit or lie down. Get comfortable. Relax. Do some deep breathing. Focus only on your breath. Close your eyes. Hold high vibration crystals in your hand (citrine, amethyst, orgone, clear quartz). Clasp your hands together. Using your applied will, visualize that you push out your energy in front of your torso about 3 to 6 inches from your torso. Do this with the intent to raise your vibrations.
Meditation helps with pain relief. So, will anything you do to distract yourself from thinking about the pain – I.e., being fully engaged in the moment. Also, look into massage, chiropractors and acupuncture for pain relief.
Headaches can be stress related or migraines. With respect to stress headaches, try natural remedies that help relieve stress such as vitamin B12, magnesium and valerian root supplements along with chamomile, skullcap and passion-flower. Try feverfew and white willow bark supplements. Try relaxing scents from essential oils such as vanilla, rose and other floral scents. Try deep breathing exercises and meditation. Have someone send you long distance Reiki. For headache pain also try anti-inflammation supplements discussed above along with fresh ginger. Fresh ginger is also recommended as a remedy for stomach pain.
For chronic headaches and migraines, take magnesium and get cranio-sacral energy healing from a Reiki practitioner. This is hands on energy healing that focuses on the head, sinuses and neck. Cranio-sacral energy healing releases trapped energy in the head and sinuses that result in headaches and helps relieve tension in the neck. The Reiki practitioner will pull trapped energy in your head, through your body and out your feet.
With respect to chronic pain, check your thyroid function. Stress reduction, detoxification and a diet that consists primarily of whole raw fresh organic vegetables (except for a lot of raw cruciferous vegetables) in salads and juices should improve the health of your thyroid. Avoid processed foods, refined sugar and starches. Drink pure water with fresh lemon. All this will help make your body/PH level alkaline and non acidic. This will help for thyroid health. Holistic research indicates the benefits of magnesium, iodine, selenium and zinc and protein powder supplements for thyroid health. Also, holistic research indicates the benefits of herbal supplement blends for thyroid health. Many of these blends include ashwaghanda, holy basil, l-tyrosine, kelp and shizandra among other herbs. For thyroid health, avoid gluten, dairy and meat.
You can also release trapped energy in your head as follows: lie down and focus on deep breaths into your heart. Visualize that you are pulling energy from your head, through your body and legs and out your feet. Hold grounding stones such as boji stones in your left hand while you do this exercise. Also, do the same visualization while you sit up and plant your bare feet on the ground. Visualize that you pull the energy in your head into your body and legs, and push that energy deep into the ground through your feet.
