Pain can be physical but also mental, emotional or spiritual. This discomfort is not a punishment but rather a calling to heal a part of your inner being. In the grips of pain, it is difficult to separate the experience of suffering from spiritual enlightenment. Often the two extremes feel very far apart. As each person’s journey through temporary and chronic pain is unique, there are also many paths to healing.
Temporary vs. Chronic Pain
Temporary pain is a signal sent from the nervous system communicating something is out of balance and needs correcting. For example, when your hand touches a hot stove, you instinctively move it out of the way. The result is a physical burn which damages the skin and sometimes the nerves. This injury requires first aid and time to heal. Unless your burn is severe, your hand would recover and this pain experience would be forgotten overtime.
Chronic pain for a multitude of reasons, no longer responds to the correction and becomes stuck in a negative feedback loop. This is not to say, you cannot find relief. Your solution may come in a different form than you expect, such as holistic medicine or a combination of holistic and traditional forms.
I have been connected with the angels since childhood. Like many of you, I have experienced temporary and chronic pain. Through meditation and prayer, the angels have offered me hope, direction to new healers and doctors, and suggestions for self-care. The angels have encouraged me to work with others in pain to help them. The most important tool you will utilize on your healing journey is your instinct or gut knowingness. If a person or a treatment feels right for you, speak up and try it.
Archangels Who Can Help
Archangel Gabriel will help you communicate your thoughts and feelings to doctors and healthcare professionals. Pain can be linked to repressed emotions and psychological trauma. Learning how to express your feelings through creativity and the spoken word, will benefit your healing.
Archangel Michael will help you release fear, give you the motivation to keep going and the courage to try something new. Many times when pain strikes, our fear response heightens the experience. You may also feel fearful trying a new doctor, healer or treatment. Change feels scary to many of us, even if it helps. If you try something new and it does not work, speak up and try something else or take a break from it. Remember, you always have a choice.
Archangel Raphael is the number one angel for all health concerns physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. Pray to Raphael for healing and to direct you to the best doctors and healers for your condition. Follow Raphael’s advice, even if it is getting more fresh air or being in the sunlight. Being out in nature, can do wonders for our health on all levels by increasing healthy levels of oxygen and receiving that all important Vitamin D from the sun.
There are many other Archangels not mentioned here, although I wanted to discuss the main ones I have worked with for chronic pain. Remember to also pray to your guardian angel. Each person has at least one guardian angel who has been with them since birth. No matter who you ask for help, know your request for healing and help has been heard. You are never alone. Pay attention to the signs and synchronicities you receive and take action. You are worth it!
