Know this: your chronic pain is the baby crying louder and louder, desperately trying to get your attention, so you can attend to your internal state. If you learn to sooth your internal bully these cries will slowly but surely diminish. The more you sooth yourself, the less rage your unconscious will have. Your unconscious is the primitive part of your brain, and is very much like a baby. It want so badly to be listened to that it cries and cries. These cries take the form of chronic pain. However, if your primitive brain is soothed, then these cries lessen and lessen, and there is no longer any need for it to create the symptoms. Learn to soothe your inner child, and you will heal.
