Pain is Your Teacher
I see this happening in every Ayahuasca ceremony I have facilitated over the year. People come to heal and willing to do the work but they fear the pain they feel during their journey. They often come out terrified , overwhelmed by their emotional pain and tell me they don't want to do this anymore. It is in the darkest places , in the struggle with pain, where we see the light of finding our own inner strength. Like the old Buddhist saying, pain is inevitable, suffering is optional; the pain may be something outside of our control but suffering is up to us and how we handle it. Pain is your teacher, allow yourself to feel it.
