The mind fears that the unconscious rage will break out into consciousness. It creates a physical distraction to keep your attention on your body instead of the rage. We rationalize structural pain because it is socially acceptable.
We must acknowledge the psychological basis for the pain to get to the subconscious. The unconscious is terrified by the rage. We must acknowledge and accept the emotions.
Think of your repressed rage and the reasons for it. The conscious speaks to the subconscious. You tell your mind that you know what it’s doing and it’s not needed. By identifying them they reduce the symptoms such as back pain or headaches, etc.
It helps to list all of your reasons for anger, even from childhood. By identifying pressures consciously we reduce it. Find solitude.
The goal is to change the unconscious mind’s reaction..be patient but persistent.
The role of the pain is to divert the information.
Knowledge is essential to the release because we are made aware and it frustrates the brain’s strategy. Change the focus from the body to the psyche.
Empowerment is strong medicine
The rage is often unknown because it is in the subconscious. We need to stop in the subconscious reaction to protect us in this non-productive and harmful way. We need to stop trying to be perfect and good and accept and know ourselves. Once acknowledged the rage becomes less powerful.
Repetition is key
The subconscious must begin to believe the new thoughts of acknowledgement of what’s going on.
When the feelings are frightening, embarrassing or unacceptable we hide them.
The brain will not give up a distraction unless forced to. Pain is caused by a circulatory alteration induced by the brain. These are depleted areas of Oxygen.
The anger you know about consciously is not the anger causing the pain. It is the subconscious rage we are not aware of. Repression is from how we see ourselves. It is a subconscious reaction.
We see it because we become angry at minuscule things like traffic. We don’t realize how much anger we hold. We often blame something outside for our rage. We must tell the subconscious we’re safe and it no longer needs to try and protect us this way, so it can let go.
Physical Pain versus Subconscious Driven Pain
The difference between muscle soreness from physical exercise versus emotions lies in the timeline of the issue. Muscle soreness from physical activity often goes away in days. Emotionally caused pain stays for weeks or months.
Any continued focus on the painful body part will sabotage positive results.

Quickly Reduce Your Child’s Symptoms
of Autism by Eliminating 7 Specific Foods that Most People Consume Daily!
The first crucial step of autism recovery is to begin restoring health to the gut and the immune system.
The health of the gut is directly linked to the health of the brain and therefore to the symptoms of autism. In fact, 80% of the immune system comes from the gut so if the gut is not healthy, then the brain can’t thrive, and the immune system is compromised. It’s a vicious cycle, but thankfully, it’s one that we can put an end to by first eliminating harmful foods.
