“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
It is time for all of you to recognize the value that the pain brings to your lives. It is time for all of you to let go of resistance to pain in all of its forms. Pain is not the enemy. Pain is your friend. Were it not for pain, you would keep your hand on the hot object that would burn your skin off.
So you see, you always have examples in the physical like that for the ethereal, for the metaphysical, the esoteric. The pain that you experience emotionally and psychologically is also there to give you the gift of demonstrating to you what does not serve you. It’s there to alert you that it’s time for you to move away from something or someone.
Pain also has the ability to suck you in. You can begin to identify with it, to see it as that which defines you. So there is a healthy medium that you all have the opportunity now to come to. The happy medium that you seek to arrive at is one where you recognize the value of pain, but you also don’t then use it as a tool. You see, you can take the pain beyond the point where it serves you for a variety of reasons, the most obvious of those reasons is sympathy and attention from others.
When you see pain for what it is and you come to terms with it, you have a healthy relationship with it, then you don’t need to attach yourself to it any longer than it actually serves you to experience it. You can move through the pain and find yourself having a much more pleasant experience in very little time. One of the ways in which you get stuck in a pain cycle is by not accepting the circumstances, and another way is by giving yourself a hard time for ever encountering the pain in the first place.
Pain is inevitable. It’s part of the human experience, and it’s what you do with it that really matters. You can use it to inspire you. You can use it to create something new. You can use it to catapult you towards that which you do want, and when you do so, you see pain as your friend. And then when it comes up, you don’t have to fear it, you don’t have to run away from it, and you don’t have to do anything and everything to avoid it at all costs.
There is freedom in accepting pain, and there is power in demonstrating to yourselves that you are bigger than the pain. So we recommend that you use it and that you let it serve you.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
