When you heal your emotional pain body, then you can do almost anything.  And when you don’t heal it, then almost everything you do will fall apart.

Unfortunately, healing your emotional pain body is a difficult thing to do because it takes relentless determination to cast off your shadow self.

What Is the Emotional Pain Body?

Echart Tolle offers us a detailed description of the pain body:

The pain-body wants to survive, just like every other entity in existence, and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. It can then rise up, take you over, “become you,” and live through you. It needs to get its “food” through you. It will feed on any experience that resonates with its own kind of energy, anything that creates further pain in whatever form: anger, destructiveness, hatred, grief, emotional drama, violence, and even illness. So the pain-body, when it has taken you over, will create a situation in your life that reflects back its own energy frequency for it to feed on. Pain can only feed on pain. Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible.

The Ubiquity of the Emotional Pain Body

There is no shortage of examples of the emotional pain body flaring up.

It shows up in politics when a political candidate tries to win votes by inciting frustration or hatred in an audience toward someone or something.

It shows up in the entertainment industry. Violent movies are the norm. Messages of apathy, fear, anger, and grief are part of every script. In fact, the entire horror movie genre is designed to feed emotional pain bodies.

It shows up in mainstream media news every day.

It shows up in all neurotic and psychotic behavior. At it’s extreme, it leads to criminal behavior.

It shows up in domestic arguments and family squabbles.

It shows up in celebrity gossip magazines.  People who appear to have everything do foolish things that destroys their fame and fortune. They destroy in a day what took years of hard effort to earn. They lives are like train wrecks.

It shows up in your daily life when you get triggered by an event that stirs up lust, pride, sorrow, or rage.

When the emotional pain body has completely taken over a person’s mind, it causes havoc. Cruelty. Homicide. Suicide.

Those who promote war and those who respond to it are all echoing the emotional pain bodies urge for destruction.

Fortunately, it’s subdued in most people most of the time. It only comes out now and again. Yet although it is usually in hiding, it is quietly wrecking their lives.

The Ontology of the Emotional Pain Body

The emotional pain body has been growing since the day you were born. Every time you were dominated, crushed, disrespected, and abused by others, it grew bigger and stronger.

Throughout your life, each episode of pain builds on previous episodes.

Today, you have a huge shadow self built up from layers of suppressed pain.

Your shadow self often expresses itself in subtle ways:

  • When your doubt results in inaction and your hesitation results in a significant loss.
  • When you squander your fortune on a wild speculation.
  • When your foolish remark destroys a relationship.

The Root Cause of All Failure

When people fail at anything, it’s not because they can’t learn how to do something.  It’s because the pain of all their mistakes make them stop learning.

Therefore, when people fail at anything, it’s because their emotional pain-body has taken over. They don’t act in a proactive way. They don’t do constructive things.

Healing the Emotional Pain Body

The emotional pain body will take a long time to heal, but each step is a huge milestone in your personal growth.

Spiritual philosophy recommends that you focus  on the present moment. When you notice your emotional pain body, view it with detachment. It usually goes into remission when observed.

Unfortunately, this is often too big a leap for most people.

With that in mind, here are two methods I’ve used with success to reduce the size and scope of my own emotional pain body:

1. The Sedona Method.

The Sedona Method was created by Lester Levenson, and it is now taught by Hale Dwoskin.

Here is Dwoskin’s description of the Sedona Method:

Step 1: Focus on an issue that you would like to feel better about, and then allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling in this moment. 

Step 2: Ask yourself one of the following three questions:

• Could I let this feeling go?

• Could I allow this feeling to be here?

• Could I welcome this feeling?

Step 3: No matter which question you started with, ask yourself this simple question: Would I? In other words: Am I willing to let go?

Step 4: Ask yourself this simpler question: When?

Step 5: Repeat the preceding four steps as often as needed until you feel free of that particular feeling.

2. Cord Cutting.

Here is a description of cord cutting from Sarah Hall:

Cord Cutting is the process of removing negative energy attachments from your life. Cords attach to your energy body when you have imbalanced relationships with other people, situations, or beliefs. A cord is the energetic manifestation of fear based thoughts, and is a passageway through which toxic energy can pollute you, or your energy can be drained from you. When we continue to engage in negative relationships, our cords to them can become more and more of a block to your vitality and peace of mind.

A Journey of A Thousand Miles

Removing your pain body is the biggest single challenge you will ever face. But each step along the way will free you up a little more.

You will find it easier to accomplish your goals and to get along with others. You will live the good life without even trying.

Your circle of friends will change, too. You will not resonate with negative people. They will lose interest in you because you are no longer a source of emotional nourishment.

When you become a conscious person, then will be fully here and now. You will be enlightened. And your life will flower like a rose in the desert.
