I have been experiencing chronic pain in my shoulders. It affects my sleep and makes me tired. I know the cause of pain and suffering -taking care of my life partner for two years and her passing away six months ago. I tried to take care of my pain and suffering during these tough years lovingly shouldering responsibility of taking care of my beloved. The demand was more than I could handle. After she passed away I became more cognizant of my ongoing pain. Shouldering necessary and heavy responsibility has caused pain in my shoulders. I become mindful of my pain, my breathing , my thoughts and accompanying feelings and let them come and go. I do it for a short time during the day and spend more time before I go to sleep and after I wake up. This holistic way of mindfully working on my self has been helpful in reducing my emotional suffering slowly and gradually and also reducing my physical pain. My sleep is getting more restful and I am able to feel more energy. Mind, Body and Breath are three interrelated sides of my being. How I relate to them is my choice.

Are you feeling alone or sad for losing your partner, that could be one reason of your pain. Please, think, meditate and try to let go of such stored emotions. Amen.
