Healing with Pain

Sometimes Love asks of us that piece which is the most difficult to surrender. It is in this moment, we must remember to call on the power of Grace to infuse our every cell, channeling to us the stamina we need to honor Her call. And as we do, even while our heart breaks, the golden power of healing is occurring simultaneously. 


It goes against our very beliefs that we can feel pain and yet be healing all at once. Our ‘reasoning’ minds can’t process this Universal truth. And yet, there are times our greatest pathway to healing is to feel the intensity of what pains us most. We must move through it in order to release it.

How does one begin to understand this? Surely, my friends, there is no possible way for the brilliance of our intellect to grasp something that is true in the sacred space of the soul. Often they appear to be in conflict with one another–thoughts challenging the *knowing.

We must instead allow our deepest, most protected wounds to have voice, to become the gentle and compassionate whispers of our soul’s truth. THIS is the very place in which our human experience becomes consumated with the purity and purpose that lives in our soul. What we see on the other side will amaze and mystify–expanding so far beyond what we could possibly imagine. We become transformed, shifted into an evolved version of our spirit-selves. There is an illumination that accompanies such experiences. We have only to ALLOW it to be so.

  1. Beautiful thoughts, and can be life-changing only if we, as you said, ALLOW ourselves. Great post, thanks for sharing the quote as well. 🙂

  2. Amazing post – it reminds of this quote I read on another blog earlier this week from Kahil Gibran:

    “Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

    Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.”

    I admire your willingness to break the shell.

  3. Jackie, the hurdle is in the ‘allowing’ isn’t it? Instead we fight and resist and build walls and scream in silence. And somewhere along the line, we remember to allow. To go with the flow and learn the lesson.

    It’s not easy, nor fun but there’s something we need to know. Maybe we need to experience this so we can offer advice and help at another time. The ‘allowing’ elevates us to Teacher instead of student.

    Your words are beautiful, Teacher.

    1. Marge ~ Every time I read your comments, I feel such depth and sincerity–genuine companionship from you on this journey. My heart is filled with gratitude to have met such open, conscious souls who share the steps along the way.

      Indeed – it’s the allowing that makes all the difference. Your words ‘scream in silence’ are all too real for me. When I’m going against my self, when I can’t hear, there is a woman who begins to scream aloud inside my mind. She is a clear sign to stop–and to stop fighting.

      Thank you for letting your voice be heard, for guiding us deeper into the uncomfortable, for letting yourself be seen. Much love to you. xoxo

  4. the concept really does go against our very beliefs…so true…i felt myself kind of tense up even as i read the title “healing with pain” which means i feel even more compelled to read it…

    thanks, i’m gonna go ponder that…

    1. I so appreciate your willingness to read the words even after feeling the tension. Could feel the ripple go through me as well, when I titled this post. Seems so foreign to have these two words/concepts in a sacred dance together. Love to you. xo

  6. “Every friendship travels at sometime through the black valley of despair. This tests every aspect of your affection. You lose the attraction and the magic. Your sense of each other darkens and your presence is sore. If you can come through this time, it can purify with your love, and falsity and need will fall away. It will bring you onto new ground where affection can grow again.”
    ― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

    Healing is found in the most unlikely places, just as it should be. May your healing be 10 times more fulfilling than any pain caused in needing to be healed. The light so bright, filling the cracks of the wounds ❤

    1. Rumi. I felt his words as I typed my own. And thank you, sweet Anna for the comforting poetry of our beloved John O’Donohue. Feeling the beauty of who we are, as seen and shared through HIS words….like honey for my soul. Love you. xo

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
