How to Use Meditation for Physical Pain Relief

Being in pain can make doing the things we need to do feel almost impossible. When we’re in pain, we’re not thinking clearly. We are fixated on the pain and we are often mad that we are not feeling well. This is why meditation is most important when we are in physical pain. So how do we meditate in pain? Recent scientific studies have shown that meditation can actually lesson our experience of pain! And so often, it is our resistance, fear and mental turmoil that is often worse than the physical pain itself. And this mental distress can also make the pain feel amplified. In this episode, I’ll share how to meditate when we’re in pain, why the clarity that comes from meditation can lesson our pain, and how meditation can even help the body heal faster!
