Embracing the Pain

The beginning of many experiences on the journey leading to spiritual, emotional, and mental peace begin with emotional pain. Once the pain and suffering becomes uncomfortable or intolerable enough, we will start to seek relief and help. By the time the severity of our discomfort is acknowledged and help is sought, the pain many experience has been ruminating in our spirit and effecting our physical health, social relationships, and emotional and mental health.

If you have found yourself seeking help after your drug and alcohol consumption have caused you enough strife to admit you suffer without an outside substance; you have found your depression and anxiety has begun effecting your life to a point of seeking relief; or have found your compulsive thinking has begun to effect you sexually, socially, and often financially, and in spite of all solutions tried thus far you still find yourself suffering, do not be discouraged. Your seemingly incurable pain and suffering may just be the signs needed to begin the journey to your spiritual experience. A Spiritual Solution is the only answer to our Spiritual Suffering.

Do not be discouraged for many of us living today in the light of peace and security know this pain and hopelessness was the beginning of facing and identifying our underlying fears allowing us to understand our underlying hurt, pain, and frustration that effects our ability to live fully and completely at peace from the inside out – no matter what.

Many of us need help, guidance, and proof it worked for another in order to have hope that they too can be changed. So if this is you, email for our Zoom meeting information and find a meeting that is right for you.

I know a guy who has lived a spiritually awakened life for 40 years who speaks of “a little guy on his shoulder.” That guy on his shoulder others call a voice in their head, their conscience, their thoughts, their “stinking thinking” and other names for what can be our greatest enemy and our greatest power. The silent enemy can be the most deadly which is why those suffering greatly enough to seek help, are in a better off position as they may have a chance to experience a freedom that some will never know they are missing out on. Some do not believe the freedom of Recovery exist and even more sad for my spirit, some do not believe it will work for them. It can and will work for you if sought! This is a truth that millions have experienced work and I hope if you are suffering in any way you too seek a spiritual experience to solve all of your fears and suffering. We will help you for Free so do not let that stop you!!!!

“Learning to name our fears and understanding the underlying pain and hurt and frustration that cause us to shun away from living fully and completely is our aim. Seeing the many faces of fear and not denying or suppressing them is the healthiest way to change our…” — drop the rock.

Relief from our Emotional Discomfort

What lies at the root of many of our disturbances and emotional discomforts is an unhealthy dependency we give power to and it’s subsequent demand. To those suffering from and feeling enslaved to the pain of their emotions, the fear of change, panic, anxiety, loneliness, despair, and more – there is a Solution!

Most have tried many ways to ease their suffering and find that exhale of peace, including but certainly not limited to: taking medication, not taking medication, self-help books and remedies, losing weight, gaining weight, getting the job, quitting the job, getting sober, drinking and partying more, seeking therapy, changing friends, changing location, we can increase this list to go on and on. Amid this time of global change, many are finding themselves experiencing heightened levels of emotional, physical, and mental suffering. There is a free solution if your suffering is great, email us for help.

I myself spent many years “accomplishing” goals and markers that ultimately did not fulfill my spirit and solve my problems no matter what. Regardless of what I did, I could not achieve the enlightenment my suffering spirit sought for so long. Money, dream career, social acceptance and accolades, church fellowship, self-help studying and seeking, therapy and doctors, and more. After still finding myself suffering, fear took over and my life fell…plummeted down an alcoholic bottomless pit. I saw no solution to my suffering and it got dark, fast. With a violent shove from government officials and local law enforcement, I found tools to maintain physical sobriety through local Alcoholics Anonymous members. I again became a functioning member of society – I thought never again to resume the journey of fulfilling my God given gifts and passions, but I was sober. Life was looking as society said it should. Then came a time years later that I accepted I still felt a spiritual discomfort the moment I was not as busy as I learned to keep myself. A book I enjoy called “drop the rock” has the following quote that describes this painful realization, for me.

“The hole in me, the neediness, the hunger, the ache in my life that I tried to fill or stay distracted from by using addictive behavior is actually the perfectly logical result of not knowing and therefore not accepting myself as I am.” – drop the rock.

Once the pain of living becomes greater than the fear of change which blocks our divine direction and growth, you have a chance. A chance to be freed from the monster in your head continuously riddling you with guilt, torment, doubt, fear, and other falsities creating the pain and discomfort we seek a remedy for. Our thinking and emotions are Powerful and divine gifts once we are freed from the spiritual malady plaguing our bodies, minds, and emotions.

By many that have experienced a spiritual awakening and have been rocketed into that 4th dimension of existence called enlightenment a spiritual way of living brings, has been described as the end of our suffering. If you too believe you may be suffering in a way that nothing seems to ease, please reach out and ask questions, you are not alone.

“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are!”
