I had serious jaw pains for the better of two years. My jaw would hurt almost everyday, especially when I was stressed, and it's so debilitating.
I'd find it hard to smile, and I'd be in a funk because of the pain.
I tried a master cleanse
and that got rid of the pain, but it returned as soon
as I stopped the cleanse.
I then read about my condition, which I self-diagnosed as TMJ. A book mentioned a bunch of herbs and remedies, but I didn't know much about them, and
they were medicines I'd never heard of. What it did mention was to lower my stress, and it said a good way to do that was to avoid sugar and
That was all fine and dandy, but I soon discovered saying no to sugar and caffeine when several people would offer me these things throughout the day,
and being tempted, but having to say no to not be stressed, was actually stressing me out more! And the few times I would have sugar or caffeine, my
partner would say, "I thought you quit those things." And then I'd feel really bad about it. So I ended up being more stressed.
I decided to eat sugar again, and I may even consider coffee, but I'm wondering if coffee makes it worse, it's hard to tell.
Anyway, finally for the past 4 days, I haven't had any jaw pain. I am amazed, because all of December it has been really painful. Yet, this may sound
weird, I did a pagan ritual on Winter solstice to remove my pain, and it seems to be working.
Basically, we lit three candles. One candle for what we were grateful for, one candle for what we wanted done with our lives, and the other candle for
what we wanted for our life in the new year. For the second candle, I said I was done with jaw pains. Of course, they didn't go away right away. I
still had them after that ceremony, but a few hours later, we were talking about pain, and someone mentioned when they had lockjaw...
She couldn't close her mouth, it wouldn't close, but then her friend who studied spiritual healing for several years of his life told her what to
do. According to his belief, he believes the way to work through pain is to focus on the areas between things. This immediately reminded me of auras,
and how they exist between our skin and the world around us, so I kind of understood what she meant by what he said.
She then told me how she focused on the pain, but not the pain, what was between the pain. And she felt it, and was able to picture what it looked
like, like some sort of tangled knot. She she focused on the spaces between the knot, and what she did was she expanded them. Kind of like blowing
them up like a balloon. forcing the knot to stretch. What happened afterwards, she heard a loud clicking noise, and she was able to close her
So when I got home, I tried what she told me. I focused on the pain on one side of my jaw. I focused until I could really understand the pain. I then
saw where the pain was, and I pictured the pain like molecules, with spaces in between. I then sent my focus to expand those spaces in between, and
then the pain went away. The entire process may have taken me 30 minutes.
I then focused on the pain on the other part of my jaw, and did the same thing. The pain went away.
I then focused on the pain in my right shoulder on my back, and did the same until that pain went away. Miraculously, I didn't feel any pain for the
first time in two months.
And then for the next 4 days, I didn't feel any pain at all. Well, I did feel a pain in my lower back from sitting funny while watching Lord of the
Rings, but that doesn't count. My jaw was pain free. Occasionally it would crack on its own when I opened my mouth, but usually when that happens the
pain would worsen, but these times no pain at all.
Only today it hurts a little. Not sure why. I shoveled snow all day for 6 hours, so that may have been what caused it. I'll have to try this exercise
again. I suppose it's not permanent. I keep meaning to see a doctor, but if all I have to do is meditate twice a week on my pain to remove it,
that's not so bad!
I wish you the best luck with your blood. It sounds really painful, and even more painful than my jaw. But everyone feels pain differently, so I have
Anyway, try what I suggested, but I have a feeling it may take awhile. It took me about a half hour meditating for it to work. I also was super
motivated for it to work until the pain went away, and I super believed in the magic that it would heal. I think with doubt or uncertainty, it
wouldn't work. So it doesn't hurt to try it, just don't be disappointed if it doesn't work. Personally, I think the power of belief is a magical
thing. It's hard to explain, but I've seen belief do things that can't really be explained rationally except as blind luck.
Anyway, best of luck to you!
