We all have experienced many different types of pain throughout our lifetime, from broken bones, to broken hearts. Some of us have gone through cancer or supported loved ones through cancer. We have all had bouts of depression and anxiety while some of us are clinically diagnosed with it. The fact is no one alive is immune to experiencing pain.
When we go through these types of pain, there are also many different types of strategies to deal with the pain. Prescription pain pills, home remedies, and a multitude of mind, body and spiritual therapies have been created to deal, cope, manage, mitigate and heal all of the pain we go through as humans.
While it’s great that we have all these pain strategies, did you ever think that pain has a purpose? Pain is a signal that our incredible bodies create to tell us to drop that hot pot before you burn the skin off your hand! And like Robert Gary Lee said, the purpose of pain, if you choose so, can give you so much wisdom.
So when we hear inspiring and uplifting stories about how someone overcame their pain, the insights, the growth, the wisdom, it brings so much hope, and possibilities. Other people’s triumphs can change lives. This is the reason why my dear friend and I created the Heal Your Pain Expert Online Series. We wanted to learn more from other practitioners on how their pain led them on their healing journey to eventually help others get pain relief. Each one talks about how pain has a deeper purpose, it has something to teach us.
We interviewed 20 experts ranging in the fields of: holistic health practitioners, business and writing coaches, psychologists, hypnotherapists and of course Reiki and energy healers. These professionals talked about their personal stories about healing their own pain and sharing their knowledge and wisdom to help you. We chose to do this in September because it’s National Pain Awareness Month.
Some of our speakers were diagnosed as children with diseases such as ulcerative colitis, scheuermann’s disease, Lyme disease, and scoliosis. Along with these medical diagnoses, these speakers also talked about getting off prescription painkillers, how depression and anxiety ensued. For some this led to using alcohol to escape the depression and anxiety.
On the subject of emotional and spiritual pain, some of our speakers suffered emotional childhood abuse, depression from financial ruins, grief from the loss of loved ones and animal companions. Others spoke of ignoring their spiritual gifts, while others were confused about life purpose and stifling their artistic expressions.
Each of these brave speakers talk about their long journeys out of these challenges and we asked each one to share a technique that they use on themselves or in their healing practices to help ease physical, emotional and spiritual pain. So each interview has some kind of brief guided meditation or technique to bring you peace in your mind, body and spirit!
In each interview you will not only get a healing experience, you will also learn new perspectives on healing and relieving pain. I have personally gained so much more insight and a renewed commitment to creating more loving thoughts when I am stressed or in pain.
I know the topic is pain, but we still managed to find some humor, so it’s not going to be just a bunch of somber interviews, it’s all about reminding you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, we just have to remind ourselves that it’s there!
Here is exclusive access to the first video just for our Soul Body family. In this video we discuss with How to Soften Pain with Frans Stiene. Frans is an author, public speaker and Reiki Master Teacher..

We are not saying you can live a pain free life, but you can definitely manage and heal your pain. I hope you join us and find your own A-HA moments.
Self-Love Coach and Mentor
From a very young age Faith has had a connection with the spirit world. She would talk to the spirits, cross them over, and allow them to be heard by telling them she saw them. She specifically told them what they looked like, so they knew they could share their stories of how they died with her.
By her teenageyears she learned how to create boundaries with them, where she then started to connect the living world with the spirit world. She would connect the living to their spirit guides, loved ones, and friends. Faith has seen the spirit world her whole life.
Faith also has a gift of healing, when she was young she would start massaging family members feet or arms. She would notice pain, and then would start to move the muscle around and the person who she was working on would say it didn’t hurt anymore.
Faith then realized she wanted to help people psychologically and physically, so she went to Massage School where she got her massage license, which allows her to work on anyone who is seeking her gifts.
Faith is an Inuit, healer, and psychic medium. With all of these gifts she knew she was meant to help those around her who are stuck, and need clarity on their own life. Faith has a special gift in her massage, she energetically sees pain on the body that she is working on and removes it. She sees the pain as past experiences that have been either traumatic or unresolved. She then expresses what she sees to the person whom she is working on. The pain is no longer there. Faith is a listener; she listens to you and allows you to feel safe with her.
Twelve years ago, I was at a crossroads in my life. I was lost. I was self-loathing, I was drinking too much. I was in a dark place. It was at that point when I first discovered yoga. Little by little I started to step into my light. I stopped drinking. I found Kundalini. I can truly say it saved my life. Through practicing yoga, I was able to love myself. I lost weight, I started to feel better about who I was on the inside, as well as the outside.
My transformation and experiences led me to obtain 200 hours of yoga Kundalini TT and 200 hours of Hatha TY instructions as well as become a Reiki healer (certified level 2). I am a Level 2 Kundalini instructor with added certifications in Conscious Communication, Vitality & Stress, and Mind & Meditation.
Today, I am more than a yoga instructor, I am a deeply caring teacher who uses the Kundalini system to impart the same gifts of strength and awareness that Kundalini has given me to all of my students. I teach yoga to show people their inner strength and that all they need to overcome challenges in life is within them already. I show people how to go into themselves to find light and self-love. I also use sound healing, movement, and meditation techniques to offer holistic and substantial methods of self-care to my students, or as I lovingly call them “my people.”
With much gratitude~
