Body Card 2.
When I have a headache and take medication to stop the pain, I hope my troubled thoughts will also disappear.
My pain disappears when I choose loving thoughts rather that attack thoughts.
When we reach for pain relief for a headache, or whatever ache, we usually don’t bother about considering our troubled thoughts. We usually don’t identify our fearful thoughts as the true cause of our pain.
Our fear thoughts are always thoughts of separation from our true Self and can be associated with lack, conflict, loss, and death. Our troubled thoughts often manifest as feelings or physical symptoms.
Choosing loving thoughts when we already have fearful thoughts manifesting as a headache means asking for help to look at our troubled mind. We cannot let go of fearful thoughts without first gently looking and smiling at them. We hide them when we judge them or feel guilty about them.
When we take medicine and hope our trouble thoughts will also disappear, they don’t. They just remain hidden from awareness and reappear in the future to cause more discomfort. Receiving healing in the form of medicine is the best we can do when we are unwilling or to afraid to look at our thoughts. Taking medicine is kind and loving and what we are ready to accept in that moment. We just need to know that when we are ready there is still inner healing to be done.
Our bodily pain subtly shifts the moment we ask for help with our mind. The ultimate healing we might conclude is that the physical symptoms disappear without any medication. But what happens in the world of form once we join with Spirit is not our concern. Whatever happens will not be anything that increases fear. The miraculous healing of the body would be threatening to someone who is not ready to move beyond the laws of this world. So healing comes in the form of a tablet.
When our troubled thoughts are gone the pain in our mind disappears and the experience of our headache will be different. We have chosen love. We may still need to take pain relief, lie down or whatever, if the sudden disappearance of our headache would be a threatening experience.
