I posted a new binaural pain meditation piece that I’ve been listening to (on the right). If you go to YouTube you can find many different binaural beats; some for meditation, sleep and this one is for pain. It really does help if you give it a chance. Use headphones, get in a comfortable position and just listen to it when you have a chance to be quiet for at least 30 minutes or so. Humming with it also helps. And I’ve been repeating my new mantra: You are loved, there is nothing to fear” and, my new favorite “With love, I give back all the pain that was given to me, with love.” Something shifts inside when I say those words and it's like the air going out of a balloon in terms of pain relief..
I had a hard day today. A busy week. I saw my pain doc on Tuesday, FORCED myself to go shopping with my help on Wednesday (as I haven’t done that in MONTHS) and today, saw my healer. So I’m in a lot of pain today, even though seen the healer usually helps. I’m listening to my pain meditation while I write this. Not the way you should do it but sometimes, having it on while I do something else takes my mind off it enough so that I’m not “trying” to force it, you know? I listen to the one on lucid dreaming at night, though I don’t want to fall asleep with it on because it’s You Tube, and an ad may jump out at me in the middle of a REM cycle (LOL).
My visit with the pain doc went okay; a new doc was there. There is always someone new that has a bunch of questions for me. This doc was kind, sensitive and listened well to what I had to say about NF, pain and all I do to manage it.
I’m keeping this short, as the pain is bad. Just wanted to check in!
