Everybody does get hurt at one point or the other. Ergo, its just perfectly normal. Nevertheless, you need to watch out for one thing: hurt can sometimes kill. How? A lot of people who feel a lot of pain and hurt go through a period filled with negative emotions, from anger, resentment, anxiety, and depression. Their lives revolve around the feeling that before they know it they are already very much consumed of their hurt. They are no longer able to live their lives the way they are supposed to be.
You dont want to find yourself in this situation. A hurting feeling affects not only your emotional state but also your physical being. In case you dont know, hurt can bring about a huge level of stress. When youre under stress, your immune system goes down. Its convenient for you to get sick easily. Moreover, you will feel the tension all over your body, so its not surprising to experience some type of pain, such as in the back.
The Use of Visualization to Heal You
Getting rid of the hurt can take some time. This is especially true if its deep seated. However, if you are looking forward to a time when you are completely healed, you should wait any longer. The healing process should begin now. You can take the first step through visualization.
How does visualization help you? Visualization is all about creating scenarios or images in your head. The main objective of producing them is to have a clearer picture of dealing with certain life issues, including past hurts.
For example, if the reason for the hurt is caused by a bully or someone who has been a cause of your insecurity, you can go back to such time and imagine yourself standing up against that person and telling him/her everything you want to say.
You can also imagine picking up stones on the grass. Each one represents the causes of your pain. Then you throw them into the water, which symbolizes that youre already willing to let them go. If you want to be more morbid, you can imagine burying a coffin, which contains the past youre willing to forget. Your intention is to never bring them back to life again.
While in the process of visualization, you can use subliminal messages or affirmations. These subliminal messages will further reinforce the idea you want to give to yourself. For instance, you can use the following:
I am willing to let go of the pain.
I am letting go of the hurt.
I am looking forward to a happier me.
I am making a choice to be forgiving and happy.
During your visualization you can repeat these subliminal messages many times. Soon both the images and the words will begin to change the way you see things. You will notice that youre more open, you feel lighter, and youre more than willing to forgive others and yourself for what happened. You can feel the hurt is gradually dissipating. BOLA TANGKAS
