Serving one another The nature of healing


expression through the arts, therapies and spiritual connection.


If you’re looking to define compassion and empathy, consider that everyone around you is fighting some sort of personal battle. It may not be something we want to focus on too often, and instead we would be better off celebrating each other’s light and sharing in our gifts, but – to some degree – everyone is wounded. We all have our own shadow side or ‘pain body’. Many people are quite unconscious of what that is and how it makes them behave, and how the people around them are also acting out their pain, and triggering the pain in others.


What causes the pain body? It can go right back to a difficult birth or a lack of love in childhood; abuse of many kinds; insults and criticisms; perceived failures; violence and cruelty; rejection; loneliness; isolation through feeling different from the norm; grief and loss.


What numbs the pain body? Distractions such as comfort food, work, alcohol, drugs, sex, shopping, drama, gossip and television are all potentially soothing, but can also be addictive and unhealthy.


What heals the pain body? Love, primarily: from others and compassion for ourselves. Also, exercise, friendship, laughter, meditation, being in nature, service to each other, self


Are those who we consider bad or even evil, more likely operating from an extreme pain body, along with various levels of disconnection and a high level of unconsciousness? Do we punish those with difficult or destructive behaviours, or do we try to help them? Has a suicide case wanted to escape life or have they simply wanted to escape their pain? I believe that by becoming fully


conscious of own pain body, we begin to heal, and to heal those around us. When others attack us, we see their pain and don’t take it so personally. We spend less time numbing out, and instead engage in activities that energise us. This magazine is about an


energising, alternative way of life to the model of society presented to us by the mainstream media. The constant demand for increased productivity to feed a selfish materialism puts a huge strain on the individual. Surely the true nature of humanity is to bring out the best in each other. By cooperating, we help each other to thrive, rather than competing in an effort to survive. By connecting, we can find the


people who resonate with us, who care for us and for whom we care, and who can heal alongside us. We begin to live on a soul level, we use our intuition more, and we stop labelling and judging.
