Inappropriate Rage and Chronic Pain
So, it might too simple.
What if your chronic pain can be healed by acknowledging inappropriate rage?
Here is a real life example of what is “inappropriate rage”.
A client came to me and said he has been having foot pain for the last six months. He’s seen foot doctors, neurologists, blood specialists and everything checks out fine. The only thing that they see is a little inflammation in the tissue and bones. But the foot hurts like hell and he can only walk about a 100 feet at a time.
A little background about the client, he’s former airline employee, and he can travel for free on any open flight. He loves to travel impromptu to destinations all over the world.
I asked him what was going on in his life six months ago. Without hesitation he said, “My dad turned 91 and he’s been admitted to hospice.”
So what happened? I asked. “Well, I stayed home to be with him and my mom.” he replied.
“How did that make you feel?” I asked. He told me he had to change his lifestyle because of this event.
After about ten minutes of exploring this, I asked “There must be some inappropriate rage towards your dad?”
He was quiet and looked down, without replying. He’s a religous person and this seemed like a difficult question for him.
About a month later he called me and said, “Hey, my foot pain is gone. It’s completely normal. I can walk as much as I want! We just did the funeral services for my dad. Thanks for your support.”
Was it me that helped him? I’d like to believe so, because I see this over and over again.
Be compassionate to yourself and allow yourself to have inappropriate rage. Go back to when your pain began and review what was going on in your life. And what’s going on in your life right now? It’s not the rage you know about that’s keeping you in pain.
It’s the inappropriate one that you are holding back that’s keeping you in pain. Just allow it and you’ll heal rapidly.
