It's completely natural to want to avoid pain, because it feels "bad," we instinctively resist it, ignore it, override it, and generally try to get rid of it as quickly as possible. Sometimes, we try to numb ourselves or escape - through painkillers, drugs, or alcohol; through distractions like shopping and overworking; or even through exercise or spiritual practices - because those are the only tools we know for dealing with it.
But what if pain isn't the problem at all?
The truth is, pain is simply a message designed to get your attention. It isn't a punishment. It's a gift.
With more than 35 years as a physical therapist, energy healer, and a life coach, Helen MacMillan has helped countless people process and find the gifts in pain's various forms-physical, emotional, and spiritual. In this book, she shares her simple yet powerful 5-step method to help you break the cycle of pain, release limiting beliefs and habits, shift your mindset, and transform your life. Through deeply personal stories from both her own life and the lives of her clients, she shows how you, too, can find the gift in your pain - as well as a greater sense of peace, healing, love, and acceptance than you ever thought possible.
