Is your initial response “There’s no core to my pain, I’m really unwell.”? Then this 3 Deep Breaths Holistic Blog is specifically directed to you.
I don’t want you to think that there’s no care or compassion for you involved here, however, please believe me when I tell you that there’s more than likely a trauma that caused your ailment(s).
This blog will take a holistic approach to chronic illness, mental agony, emotional misery and physical discomfort.

What is pain?
Pain is a sensation.
Tissues are usually the cause of this unpleasant sensation. Sensations can be brief or long-term, large or small, and they often have emotional side-effects. Even our emotions create physical pain. Especially chronic pain.
According to Pain Australia there are 3 main categories of pain:
Acute pain: This is the type of pain that is relatively short lived.
Chronic pain: This pain lasts much longer and can be caused by trauma of the physical or emotional kind.
Cancer: The pain from cancer can be in the beginning of cell growth through to permanent after affects post-treatment.
Maybe the agony you feel isn’t actually yours. Did you know that there is now scientific evidence of our ancestors afflictions being transferred through to our DNA?
The main issue here is that you are feeling such a gross sensation that it’s causing you grief. Wouldn’t you like to change that? Without drugs?
You can read my story here.
This is a tough question.
Perhaps there’s some past karma that you need to work through.
Maybe there’s ancestral trauma which carried through the caps of your DNA – Telomeres. These guys are super interesting! They’re the plugs that protect your chromosomes and when these fray or erode they can spark DNA dissolution and chromosome anomalies. And when that happens, we become aged or ill. NICABM has an interesting read about Telomeres if you’d like to know more about how our ancestors and their suffering affects us.

Did you know that humans are actually built to live until we are 120 years old? These handy little telomeres are also in charge of our longevity – however, they are easily frayed due to stress. Stress of the environmental, physical and emotional kind.
In addition, what we think we can blame for our irritating problems may be something we can change through means other than the “conventional’ western methods. Firstly, it’s a good idea to look at ourselves and our reactions.
Is your pain trauma related?
Simply: Yes. Trauma is a response to a deeply disturbing or stressful incident where we feel engulfed with an inability to cope.
Trauma can be a one time stressful event or ongoing, relentless pressure. Situations like loss of someone close, surgery, breakups, inhumanity from others – they are all triggers that reduce our sense of safety.
What does trauma mean for you though?
- How often have you considered yourself treated poorly by others?
- Do you feel as though you struggle with upsetting emotions, memories, anxiety or depression?
- Are you easily upset at some things and not others and unsure why?
- Are there phobias that you’ve accumulated or inherited?
Any significant affliction can cause you to lose your perception of security, therefore generating emotional, physical and/or psychological anguish = chronic pain. This doesn’t have to continue to be your story forever. Whatever the origin, trust me when I tell you, that you can internally work past the impact (whether physical, emotional or spiritual) to have a healthier and happier life.
In other words, answers to the questions above don’t really matter because they are all traumas. Traumas that you (and most likely others) have had to deal with. There’s no big or small, there’s simply trauma.
Do you TRULY want to break the cycle?
I’m pretty sure that nobody actually enjoys chronic pain – feeling emotional, anxious, depressed etc but we can easily get caught up in that victim mentality and find it difficult and too tiring to escape.
- At the risk of sounding heartless; YOU, and only you, are responsible for your health and overall wellbeing. Why would you trust someone else to look after your health when you know yourself best? If you are reading this, you are already on the correct path to really getting to know who you are, why you are this way and what you want to change.
In addition, there are karmic cycles we most likely need to change by deeply dealing with our own emotions. This will become a whole separate blog because there’s much more to our emotions than meets the (third) eye.
