{Breathing Through the Pain} Living in the Moment.

PEGGY KHOUCASIAN

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” ― Amit Ray, Om Chanting and Meditation

Simply living life means you will inevitably acquire physical injuries and heartache. Pain is a misunderstood friend, though, as much as it feels like an ultimate fun-stopper! It tells you when there is something wrong. How else would you know that you have been hurt? This enlightened side to pain keeps us humble. It helps us learn. Through the wisdom and first-hand experience of dealing with pain ourselves, we also foster empathy toward others, learning how to nurture our loved ones through their own pain, as well.

Pain is also wonderful for incredible awareness of the present moment. Breathing into pain, in particular, lets you allow the sensation in so that you can feel it. Using your breath in order to honor and recognize what you’re going through lets you open up. You’ll probably unearth a lot of things you didn’t want to see or feel, and you’ll have to work through it, bit by bit. Sometimes even when we are happy, breathing through things causes old feelings to bubble up to the surface and cause pain when we weren’t expecting it at all. Double whammy, right? But I ask you: what is the alternative? If you have emotional housekeeping to do, it’s not going to go away by itself, and if you have a cut on your hand, it’s probably best to address it and wash it, right? Time can definitely be a factor in healing things, but your breath can be such a wonderful gift during this process. We can appreciate all the aspects of our lives, not just the good things.

When you get right down to it, we all have baggage and we all have things about ourselves that we have to deal with. So what if we have to work through a little ‘damage’ along the way? What is so beautiful about the human experience is that with all the imperfections we’ve collected along the way, we are all ‘imperfectly perfect’ just as we are. You’ve come a long way, baby, and we still have a long way to go, but everything about it should be celebrated as beautiful and perfect, just like you!
