Pain is personal. Everyone experiences it in a different way and what is excruciating for one person is quite manageable for another. For the person experiencing pain it is very real. Pain can be fleeting and go away as fast as it began. When pain is new it is called “acute” meaning that it recently occurred. Acute pain can be mild and annoying or extremely intense but if it goes away quickly the memory of it can fade as well. Think back to a time that you experienced acute pain and really try to remember the experience. I am sure that you remember that you had pain and you might even remember the level of pain but you probably have some trouble with recreating the actual feelings that you had at the time. You may be able to say that it was bad or that you had some trouble with dealing with it but you probably don’t remember the actual feeling of pain. The memory is about the experience but you are actually unable to recreate the authentic pain that you had by using your mind alone. Pain is only pain in the moment and the pain that you had then cannot be recreated simply by using your memory.
You can however actually create new physical pain in your present moment by using your mind. The mind is so powerful and you can actually cause physical change in your body using mind control. Imagine as you read this that you are in your favorite market. You find yourself in the produce section and you see the brightly colored fruits and vegetables. You can smell the different fragrances and aromas of the produce. Can you smell some onions or celery? Then you walk past the lemons and you are aware of the refreshing citrus smell and the brilliant yellow color. Take a few lemons and put them in your basket. Now you are home unloading your groceries and once again you come across the fresh lemons. Take one, cut it in half using a sharp knife exposing the fresh, juicy lemon. Take one half in your hand, lift it to your mouth and bite down as your squeeze. If you are like most people you salivated when reading about the lemon. That is a physical response to a process that occurred in your mind.
Jose Silva was the first to use the lemon example in his book The Silva Mind Control Method. (You can order it here http://www.worldkigong.com/reading.asp )
Now if you can make yourself salivate with your mind can you create or intensify pain using your mind? The answer is yes and this is why different people experience pain in different ways. You can have actual pain from many sources and it can be very real. How you experience it is under the control of your mind. There are so many examples of survival in the face of pain. What you experiencing at the time is part of the process. A mother who is injured pays little attention to her pain when she is concerned about the welfare of her children who are also injured. The same pain in a different situation is felt in a much different way. A martial artist who is sparring and jams a toe hardly notices it but the same person who jams their toe into some furniture in the middle of the night experiences it in a much different way. The point of this discussion is this – you do have some control over your pain and this control comes from your mind. You only need the tools to develop this mind control and then you need to practice. It is like anything in life that takes some work. The benefits are great when the work is hard.
