The pain body isn’t a problem of some individuals only, but is a trait common to all humans. The pain body is the pain each human being inherits and shares with the others. Nations and societies also have their own collective pain body, shared by all their members.
The pain body is a pain remnant. It’s the combined result of the resistance to and denial of something we experienced. It’s recognized when some insignificant event triggers a disproportionate response. It’s also recognized in your reaction when something goes wrong or when someone says something you find annoying.
The pain body emerges when the vital force can’t flow freely. Then, pressure accumulates and pain appears. When the pain body emerges, the feeling of unhappiness and emptiness increases up to an unbearable level. If we attempt to flight or to fight it, the pain grows.
Symptoms of the pain body are different in each person:
It may be perceived as a turbulence, a constraint, a "rock" in the solar plexus, a "ball" in the throat, a sensation of heaviness or heat, or by feeling dizzy, terrified, or intensely pressured.
The pain body may be submissive or aggressive. The pain body may be passive or active. There are those that are always active, as happens with people who suffer depression, chronic irritability or physical pain, or who are addict. The vital force is often trapped in the pain body. T
he pain body must come out to feed itself from time to time. Its feeding period varies from one person to another: it may be once a day, once a week or once a month. While its feeding, the pain body gains control over our mind and gives rise to destructive, negative thoughts.
The pain body is intensely addictive: once it has taken control over the person’s mind – and, consequently, of her responses – that person doesn’t want to be at peace anymore, but "needs" to go on suffering.
The pain body needs the others´ responses and feeds on them. It the individual is alone, it reviews once and again what happened or imagines what is going to happen, in order to create uneasiness and inner tension. When someone’s pain body is ready to emerge, it attempts to provoke reactions in the pain body of their nearest and dearest.
The pain body likes "drama". Unfortunately, most relationships are full of drama, and when a "drama" occurs, the mind already aligned with the pain body will find any excuse to add some of its usual tricks to a heated argument or a tense confrontation.
To acknowledge our pain body is the beginning of a healing and transformation process. As the trapped energy is released, the individual’s health, vitality and creativity increase. When we accept and "observe" the pain body, we cut its links with the mind and prevent it to control it. Then, the only residue it leaves in us is an energy field felt as uncomfortable.
The pain body isn’t our enemy, It is a contraction in our energy field, so that we won’t fight against it nor try to eliminate it.
The stronger the pain body, the stronger the motive to transform it.
What is called "karma", that is, the unconscious repetition of past energy patterns, is consciously solved and dissolved when the pain body is transformed.
Being part of the human race, each of us shares a part of collective pain and registers in her the conditioning of millions of social, cultural, genetic, planetary and, very likely, also galactic influences.
