Healing the Pain Body #Emotionalhealing

Healing the Pain Body

In his book A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle speaks of each of us having a pain body which stores psychic, physical, and emotional pain.   I was pointing this out to a client, who, like most of us, sometimes struggles with the stored emotional pains and traumas of life.

My client asked the perfect question:  “How do you heal the pain body?”

At the time, I did not have an answer.  So, the next morning, I prayed and meditated, and asked for an answer.  What came to me was stunningly beautiful, for it helps not only ourselves, but if we intend healing for others also, it helps our ancestors and those who have shared the pain with us as well.

The first step is to be aware that, in part, the pain body we carry has been acquired in our lifetime, through our own life events and relationships.  Next, we need to be aware that the pain body we carry also comes in part from the pain body of those who have passed on their own pain to us, whether those people were our parents, siblings, friends, lovers, spouses, children, or others in our lives.  Indeed, we may enter this life with pain bodies shaped by previous lifetimes, like scars that were not healed between lives.

Next, we acknowledge that the reason the pain body is still with us is that we have not yet fully released the pain.  So, we need to choose to release the pain.

Here’s the tricky part:  we are releasing not only our pain, but the pain of others as well, so this process becomes so much more effective if we choose to serve as vessels of healing for all others who have contributed parts of their pain body to us.

So, the next step before releasing the pain becomes choosing to be a vessel of healing for others who have passed on their pain to us, in particular, to bring healing and release to our ancestors who passed down their pain to us.  This is a crucial, even vital step, for healing is never selfish; rather, the nature of healing is self-giving.  We can align ourselves to receive healing more fully by aligning ourselves with the intentions of self-giving, intending healing, forgiveness, and release from pain for others.

This is a sacred process.  If we choose to engage in releasing pain, we intend healing for others as well as ourselves.  Doing one without the other is difficult, as healing is sacred and occurs from a state of Oneness with our Higher Self, which does intend healing for others!

Once we acknowledge and offer ourselves as sacred vessels for healing others, especially our ancestral lineage, we then choose to release the pain with the intention of releasing the pain for ourselves and for all those who have passed on pain to us.



Next, we engage in the Hawaiian Prayer, or Ho’oponopono.

Step one of  engaging the Hawaiian Prayer in this case is to affirm:

“I’m sorry for holding onto this pain.  I acknowledge that I have been holding onto this pain, and that my holding on has hurt others.  I choose to release this pain for myself, and for my ancestors, and for all who have felt this pain and passed it on to me.  I am sorry that I have been holding onto this pain.  Please forgive me.  I love you.  Thank you.”

We then repeat this process, intending or “aiming” the apology to ourselves, to Divine Spirit (God), to our fathers, mothers, previous generations before them, and to whomever we feel we need to intend the apology.  For each aspect of being, we repeat the steps.  So, first, we may choose to apologize to ourselves, and go through this whole process.  Next, we may go through this whole process intending the apology to Divine Spirit.  Then, we may go through the whole process for everyone with whom we have experienced emotional pain, whether their own pain, or our pain, or both.

We may begin to feel emotional release from pain immediately, or it may take a few times of repeating the process.  Please be sure to intend to serve as a vessel of healing for others in pain every time you use this process.  Thank you!

May we all begin to experience release from the emotional pain that has held us back for too long in life!

Love and Light,

Carol “Anandi”





About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
