Ending Chronic Pain

For people that suffer from chronic pain, life can be a constant struggle. Chronic pain can make it impossible for them to see who they would be without it. Over time the brain forms neural pathways that form a closed loop of suffering. If we want help ending chronic pain, we must look outside of this vicious circle.

More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. That’s more than a third of the population. The estimates for the financial cost of this are now around $650 billion a year in the United States alone.  When something hurts, the majority of people ignore it, or take a pill so that it goes away.  That’s like a pilot covering up an engine warning light instead of landing the plane and addressing the problem.  

If you think about it, it’s quite absurd that we try and get rid of the very thing that’s trying to get our attention.  I am not saying not to take pills. I am suggesting however, that we might want to look deeper into the root of it. The cause of why our body isn’t healing on it’s own needs addressing.  We have a highly sensitive nervous system and it gives us feedback on virtually every experience we have.  If we don’t give our attention to the subtle warning signs, they tend to get bigger over time – often turning into chronic experiences. 

A way out of chronic pain

What this work and many studies have shown is that chronic physical pain and unresolved emotional hurts are often intertwined.  We are not discounting actual injuries, conditions or even our diagnosis.  However, when things aren’t healing on their own, we may need to look deeper. It may serve us to see old emotional hurts that may be creating stress in our lives. This are unresolved experiences that our bodies still remember. Studies show that stress not only affects our ability to heal, but also a myriad of other aspects of life.  When we resolve this stress at the root level, this may help us align with a life free of pain. A life of possibility.

Your body is intelligent.

Our bodies are intelligent.  We evolved from primordial soup.  This intelligence inside of us is like an organic supercomputer.  It has access to far more than the mind. Our brain is more like a hard drive with a fixed amount of memory.   Our inner Intelligence that is beyond the mind, is unlimited because our consciousness is unlimited.  The only limitation to consciousness is our experience of it – the depth to which we surrender to it.  

Are you committed to ending chronic pain? They say if we keep doing the same thing, we get the same result. Are you willing to try something new? Do you want to experience something more profound than current scientific understanding? How much are we willing to get out of our own way?   You can be right, or you can be well.  We can’t always have both.  ~ John Newton from his April Call Series: “The Gift of Pain”  www.healthbeyondbelief.com

When Do You Surrender?

When do you surrender?  We’re not referring to surrendering to external events or people, although they may be involved in our experience.  We could see this as the stage of our life and they are actors within it.  Each experience, however, points to something internal.  In every situation, there’s an opportunity for you to strengthen your resolve. A choice to really go inside and ask “What is coming up inside of me in this situation? What’s the gift for me here?”  

First and foremost we need to handle what’s going on inside of us. This is not an intellectual process. We’re talking of surrender at the most simple, yet profound level.  In martial arts, our true opponent is within.  Once you handle this internal opponent, your external opponents can return to the nothing from which they came.  You may be like a spiritual ninja: You won’t find them and they won’t find you.

Could it be this simple?

So when do you surrender? Really, the question is when do we not surrender? Because in every moment, we have the choice ‘to be’. This is the awareness of being present. When this occurs, we have the ability to see and let go of our part in the equation.  This is a rare event, because most of humanity is coming from the mind, the intellect, or the separate ‘me’.  This small mind-only perspective doesn’t have all the information necessary for resolution of the problem.

In Twelve Step recovery programs, Step One states: “We admitted that our lives had become unmanageable.”  What we are really saying is “I of myself cannot handle this.”  Often it will be that life has become so overwhelming painful and we realize that we can’t do it alone.  In that moment of grace, we have the experience of surrender to our inner truth.  When we surrender the judgment, the story, the separate “I” and even the past, we see what’s left:  ‘Being’ itself and that we are not alone at all in this.

So when you surrender, what is it that you gain?  Well, you stop feeding the problem. You stop reacting to things you might not have control over. When we’re re-acting, we’re acting it out again and again.  There may be different actors, but it’s the same play, the same feeling.  We can surrender inside or we can keep reacting to the circumstance, the impossible person, or whatever that external event is.  We don’t surrender to get what we want. That is not actually surrender.  We’re referring to true surrender.  Feel that.  If the mind doesn’t understand what we’re talking about, that’s perfect because it doesn’t fit there anyway.

Benefits of Surrender

We often don’t want to surrender the little bit of control that we think we have.  However we can start being a part of the solution. We can reclaim the energy that we were expending to keep this adversarial relationship going. In this, we gain clarity; insight and we’re able to see more. We surrender our small point of view and we start to see the big picture.  We also get our true inner strength back as well as our free will.  We’re able to have this infinite well to draw on that gives us the ability to handle whatever needs to be handled.

The Impossible Becomes Possible

Your surrender grants you crystal clarity and the ability to see through what may have seemed impossible.  Where we might have focused on the trees and lost sight of the forest, we’re now able to see through the maya.  An illusion that seemed so real when we held onto the old point of view. A version that included frustration, anger, resentment, guilt, or fear.  When we feel what’s deeper, we go beyond emotional labels and wisdom is revealed.  We tap into that Eternal Intelligence that comes from being on the inside looking out, instead of outside looking to get in.  In that state of grace, you are guided into divine right action in every circumstance.  

This experience may not always be pleasant because the ego or the false “I” is trying to protect what doesn’t feel good.  When we bypass the mind and surrender into that discomfort directly, it can’t keep feeding itself.  We see It was the protection itself that was keeping it alive and real.

When we surrender, we have the support of nature and the intelligence of creation – all that is, was and ever will be.  They say the meek will inherit the earth.  When you surrender, you are the ultimate of meek and the paradox is that you now are the most powerful. ~ John Newton, from his Weekly Call Series

We Are All Seekers

Are you a seeker? I feel we are all seekers in some form, however we are all in different stages of our spiritual path. Some of us are endlessly seeking; maybe even addicted to it.  On our path, we eventually reach a point where what we’re seeking ‘out there’ isn’t doing it for us. We may even reach a stage of discontent. When we stop everything and find stillness for a moment or a breath, we see what’s really here – what we may have been running from.

There is something profound about seeing what’s unresolved in our life experience. When we take responsibility and clean that up, we get in integrity with our heart. This is often the beginning of our true path as we discover the purpose for being. All that ‘out there’ becomes much more rewarding because it’s reflecting the fullness of truth already inside us.

What seekers have in common

We want to make sure we’re not using the external world as a distraction from our awakening.  It’s easy to get caught up in the cycle of desire and consumption.  There are many hungry ghosts walking the planet who never get full no matter how much they eat.  When we wake up and have that cognition of being the ‘I am that I am’ presence, the work is done. The river is now flowing in the direction it was designed to flow. As you begin releasing, clearing, and moving forward with integrity – you’ve started an object in motion and that momentum is a powerful force. 

Notice what you feel inside.  This connects you with what’s real and is the experience of being one with all of creation; all that’s appearing in consciousness. It’s a trusted friend with open arms that is always available.  The experience of this endless field of presence is without boundaries so there’s no more hitting bottom. If we believe ‘all is lost’, this is only a mental constraint or a construct of the ego. When we’re okay with the experience of being, no matter what arises as sensation, you are free from suffering and are not a seeker any longer. ~John Newton from his Monday Night Call Series “The Deception of a Spiritual Path” #AncestralClearing #Consciousness #ComplementaryHealing http://www.johnnewton.com

What Do We Really Know?

Mental understanding can influence and affect our perception of Truth. So what do we really know?  If I understand what love is when I go into a relationship, can you see this might limit my experience? At the minimum, my expectations – negative or positive – affect what I perceive, what I know is possible and of course my behavior.  Behavior affects our results which affect our beliefs and so the cycle goes.  It’s easy to see this in others, but are we open to seeing what we might be up to behind the scenes?

We are so much more than what we ‘think’ we are.

If Truth is the ocean, does the ocean fit in the bucket of the mind?  If I only identify with the mind, that’s all I can know – all I can contain.  What we must realize is that the mind can only come from what it knows. This is an often distorted view formed by past events from our life as well as the lives of our parents and ancestors.  We can see that this narrow point of view probably didn’t work for them.  How would we be any different for us?  Doing the same thing and expecting a different result: We know where that ends up!

A sweet experience…

Expanding my perception of truth: If I’m willing to surrender that mental identity; if I’m willing to surrender what I know – even for a sacred breath, then the Infinite can fill me. Relating this to Lao Tsu, I can see that even the simple act of ‘doing nothing’ reveals what’s already present:  That I am already full of the ocean of consciousness. I can identify with this ocean instead of a bucket full of something else.  – John Newton 30 July 16 from his Monthly Free Call www.healthbeyondbelief.com

Your Ancestors Are Smiling

We, like our ancestors before us, are all superconductive. Our cells, our nervous system, our whole being is communicating with creation beyond the limits of time and space. What a responsibility we have!  Imagine what this butterfly effect could have on humanity when we clear our nervous systems of the old debris and limitation that has tethered us for as long as we can remember.  Can you feel the calling deep in your bones? Can you feel it even deeper in your heart?  

The Time Is Now

The sweetness of this work is that it can reverberate out across dimensions. The binds that limited all those that came before are only there as long as we carry them.  Forgiveness sets us free of limitation from the past.  Can you see the simple physics of this?  I feel we keep our own score.  The promise is that we have free will.  But is it free if we don’t use it?

You are not limited by the Creator – quite the opposite.  You are created in the image and likeness of that which created all that is, was and ever will be. Let this good news inspire you to bring forth what has laid dormant in your heart.  Your divine purpose awaits.  You need not look for it as it is already present.  The real question is, are you?  

Let not the mind put off your calling by focusing on what needs to happen first.  Momentum comes from the moment.  Stillness.  Here and now.  All you need is here waiting patiently for you to show up.  This stillness and all the sensations within will lead, guide and direct you in perfect order.  Your chariot awaits…

Ancestors and healing

Your ancestors are smiling as you take a stand and break the patterns of suffering that have plagued humanity for so long. The answer to the questions you seek is within you.  And it does not fit into the mind.  – John Newton 01 Aug 2016 from his Monday Call Series http://www.healthbeyondbelief.com

Our Bodies Want to Heal

Our bodies want to heal. So why don’t we experience this more often than not? What do we do when things don’t go our way?  When things don’t feel good inside, what does the mind do?  Most people judge, label and tell themselves stories about what it all means. This is like adding wood to a fire that we want to burn out.  In essence, we are trying to get rid of the very thing that could set us free. Sensations are the name of the game.  

What we feel inside is there for us, not against us.

Aren’t we quick to label what we feel instead of actually experiencing it?  Human thinkings are not human beings.  Stating that I’m angry, I’m sad or even I’m depressed are not experiences.  They are labels, however they are also judgements.  They have a history and the mind has strong opinions of them.  Can we see that these judgements feed the very thing we want ‘to get rid of’?  What if what we feel is there for us and not against us?

It’s true: Our bodies want to heal.

What if the experience of sensation was divine intelligence communicating to us?  It may be letting us know that something needs resolution at the root level. The current conditions are where most people dwell.  The Infinite wants you to heal. Your friends want you to heal. Everything in the Universe is conspiring to help you heal.  

The Mind Has Other Plans

Our bodies want to heal, but the mind has other plans. It judges and overshadows our experience of sensation in the moment. For most of us, the mind is on autopilot from what’s happened in the past – all the unresolved stress that we carry. At a certain point we start paying attention to what’s really going on.  We see the hamster wheel of it all and begin to question things.  This is a sacred moment in our evolution.  This is our wake-up call.  

When we put our attention directly on the sensation that we’re feeling, we begin the triumph of heart over mind.  We may find that what ails us will begin to heal. It is in this state of awareness – not judgement – that the fire of suffering burns itself out.  – John Newton www.johnnewton.com from his event at Temple of the Living God, Saint Petersburg, FL

On Doing Nothing

What does doing nothing mean? This may be an absurd question if the mind tries to answer it. The mind doesn’t get what doing nothing is. We need to look beyond thinking to see the true answer.  The same is true with this question: What if you never did anything?   To the mind, this doesn’t even make sense.  The obvious here is that we need to move our perception beyond the mind to truly ‘see’.  

It all comes down to perspective.  You are not your mind nor are you your body.  If you were, then who were you a hundred years ago?  Not that, right?  What we are pointing to here is your true and eternal nature – never born and never dies.  It is pure awareness or consciousness which never did anything.

Who’s On First?

Even when it appears you are doing something physically, isn’t the body doing it?  Are you aware of the body in this present moment? Of course you are.  If you are aware of something, then you can’t be that thing you are aware of any more than you are the computer you see in front of you.  

When you identify with the ‘you’ that is pure awareness – the you that is eternal – you have access to everything in all of Creation. When you are willing to do nothing – you can do anything.  As you are willing to be nothing, you have access to everything.  – John Newton http://www.johnnewton.com from his event Sept.23rd, 2015 at Temple of the Living God, St. Petersburg, FL

The Power of the Present Moment

The forces that are acting on our life are the momentum of past experiences.  If we want to move forward in a healthy, neutral way, we need to affect what’s affecting us. In order to experience the power of the present moment, we need to access more than the mind. How can we access this flow of well-being and clarity when the mind seems to overshadow consciousness?

There is a flow of intelligence through all living and arguably non-living things.  This intelligence is available to us as well. It’s here in the present.  Most people live in the mind. The mind only has access to the past and the future.  Notice the experience of thinking. Now see what is aware of thinking.

The Key to Experiencing Universal Intelligence

The key is for us to experience pure awareness in the here and now; the present moment. This flow is unlimited unless we filter it through the mind.  This direct experience beyond the mind allows us to tap into the universal intelligence of creation.  It is in this field that we can heal what has come before.

The mind seeks external power because it doesn’t have any of it’s own. The being-ness that you are however is one with true power. This is not power over others, but alignment with our heart and in service to higher good. This access of healthy, balanced power can help end human suffering.

Ancestral Clearing to Release the Past

With the practice of Ancestral Clearing, we resolve past experiences that feel painful and limiting in our life. This new found peace and clarity supports us in being present as well. It also supports us showing up fully in our life.  In this experience of possibility, you have access to resolving the forces from the past.  This simple access to the intelligence of nature supports all areas of well-being.  -John Newton www.healthbeyondbelief.com

Revelation in the Stillness

Finding stillness in this moment reveals what you feel inside. When you stop all of the outer seeking, desperation, and chaos – you find truth. A deeper awareness in the body – the sensations you are present to. This leads to a revelation of something more.  When you let go of labeling and judging whatever it is you feel inside, you connect to the intelligence woven with it.  

Are you willing to do nothing?

Stillness doesn’t mean there’s not an outer action. People may think one should sit in a cave and not do anything.  This would be the mind’s interpretation of stillness and one would be missing the mark. The paradox of living in this experience of stillness is that more gets done and in a way that far exceeds the mind’s ability.  Furthermore it gets done in a way that serves our heart, our lives, and our community.

You are so much more than you think.

When action springs from the part of us that’s always still, we are living the truth that sets us free.  This aspect of us is beyond the limitations of time and space.  One could even say this well of stillness is the revelation of intuition.  This is how you can feel contracted when you meet someone new as your body tells you not to date them.  You may have just avoided a long and painful relationship experience!  When we listen, this well provides all that we truly need on our journey.  It provides it in the perfect order that serves us.  Welcome home!   -John Newton www.johnnewton.com

The Power of Humility

We don’t often equate the humility with ‘power’.  Over the ages, humanity has sought power ‘out there’ and in turn looked to dominate people and the environment.  This has been to the detriment of millions of souls, as well as the Earth itself.  Don’t you feel it’s time for a new paradigm?  Let’s see how the power of humility works.

Humility or humble means to lower ourself. This may sound undesirable or even negative to the mind. It is not.  Active humility shifts our identity with the ego or false ‘I’ to our true eternal nature.  The paradox of this is without constraints of the small ‘I’, we find higher ground.  When we truly humble ourselves, we live with The Creator. We live with that which authored All That Is.  All of the holy texts ever written can’t hold a candle to you having this direct experience. 

The Earth Needs ‘You’

It is simple physics.  The more of ‘me’ in my life, the less of the Creator.  The more Creator, the less of ‘me’.  If you look a bit deeper into the root meaning of humility, it comes from ‘humus’, which means earth. This is where the ‘lower ourself’ come from.  Again, this is not debasing or meant in an unworthiness sense. To assume this would be a mistake of the intellect.  We are simply acknowledging our connection to the earth.  

There are two halves of the same coin of existence. One is making peace with the limited human part of ourself. The other is accepting the cosmic and eternal version of us that’s always present.  When this occurs, we may notice something magical. We can have our spiritual cake and eat it too.  Just trade the little “i” point of view for what the big “I” offers. – John Newton from his weekly call series topic:  “The Power of Humility”  http://www.johnnewton.com
