As I sat to meditate this morning I could feel a twinge in my shoulder. I found myself sighing. Yet again there is this twinge in my shoulder. My first reaction was that I needed to release it so I could continue the meditation unchallenged. And then, I stopped. Unchallenged? Was I really thinking that the pain in my shoulder was a hindrance? Hindrance? Hmmm No, I will not go to that place of hindrance because I know that I am the only one that creates the hindrance…in regards to anything. It is not the pain that was creating it.

Big deep breath to re-center. I begin by asking my twinge what I could do to help it. The answer back was exactly what I needed to remember. The answer was “I’m here to help you.” In a single breath the sublte reason and all that it encompassed settled into my Being and I fully understood. That twinge in my shoulder was there to bring me back to center. It was there to remind me that I wasn’t in my center. As I settled into that space of my Soul, that space of Love, I felt my entire body relax and respond. The twinge even responded. My body began to hum with Love and Light as I sat in that space.

I was reminded that when ever we pull ourselves our of out center our body will let us know. And I find it funny just how that happens. It seems to run the gamut when giving us signals. Some can be small, like stubbing the toe, a twinge in the shoulder, a banged elbow or knee. If we don’t pay attention at that point they seem to get louder, a cold, allergies, the flu, etc. And if we are still not paying attention…broken bones, and life threatening diseases. All for the sake of reminding us to come back to center.

I thanked my shoulder, and the twinge, for such a beautiful reminder and invited it to come back again when it noticed I was ‘off’ center. I very much appreciate it’s diligence, dedication, and Love it has for me. The pain in my shoulder had the power to bring me back to center.

How many times have we looked at pain as a hindrance and responded by simply doing everything in our power to remove it. We even put chemicals in our bodies to remove the pain, when all the pain wanted to do was remind us that we weren’t centered.

The next time you have a pain, take the time to honor that pain and re-center. I’m telling you, the moment you center yourself back into your Soul, back into a space of Love, not only will whatever you’re trying to deal with on the outside shift…so will the pain.

Pain has the power to remind us about the power of Love.
Thank you body! I Love you!

Light and Love,
