How to Feel No Pain. A Step-by-Step Guide

Today I was going to tell you about how a man named Ron developed a very cool super-power after having a Remote Session with Ken Graydon and I recently.   His story has an important, inspiring message but I’ll save it for another day because of a surprising event that happened to me yesterday.

This event confirms everything I’ve been saying for months, (years?) about how our bodies are a pure reflection of our focus and our consciousness.

Yesterday I went to the dentist to remove an old metal filling.   My dentist, lively and fun on any given day, was in especially high spirits since she had just received news of her imminent adoption of a baby girl.  A true girly-girl, my dentist loves shoes so I was describing some hilarious high heeled baby booties I’d once seen (see photo above left) just before she requested I bite down and grind my teeth to check her dental work.  As I opened my mouth a moment later, the hygenist’s hands flew to her face in alarm and I heard both women gasp in horror.

“You’ve bitten right through your tongue!”  they cried loudly in unison.

As the suction tube was put in place and the metallic taste of blood began to dissipate, they looked shaken and each murmured in sympathy several times, “That’s really going to hurt later.”

My mouth was numb with anaesthetic so all I felt was surprise and puzzlement.   We’d been having such a good time – how could this have happened?

Suddenly I was reminded of a metaphysical truth I live by, “Every event is neutral.  It’s how I interpret and respond to it that makes it good or bad.”

As I left the office with my dentist’s final good-bye words ringing in my ears – “At least you’ve got 4 hours before the pain kicks in” – I decided to use those 4 hours to allow for the outcome I wanted instead. And what I wanted was no pain whatsoever, despite the grisly 3/4 inch wound in my mouth.

As I focussed on finding the feeling, the ‘vibration’ of that possibility, three thoughts soothed me. Each one was exciting to consider in it’s own right.

1) In a recent recording, I describe how the cells of our body are themselves conscious and intelligent, with desires of their own. (If someone reading this can remind me which recording that was, I’ll post the link to it here.)  I spent a moment imagining the cells on the edge of the gash in my tongue having chosen that very position because they wanted to demonstrate their ability to heal rapidly and remain pain-free.

2) A good friend of mine died last week and the thought came to me of  how much he would now be enjoying the broader perspective of life in non-physical.  A keenly intelligent and curious person, I said to him mentally, “Would you like to take on this task of organizing non-physical energy to allow me to experience zero pain from this obvious wound?”  I felt/imagined his interest in my situation and his enthusiasm for the task and I let go of the responsibility to do anything more about it myself.   As I did, I felt the deep satisfaction of potentially experiencing this as a signal of our ongoing connection beyond the grave.

3) I remembered a central tenet of the Russian New Knowledge Organ Regeneration teachings which is that, as creators of our own experience, we can go back in time before an event and choose a different outcome.    So as I shared in these recordings I made about those teachings, I energetically, went back in time to the moment of chuckling about the high heeled baby shoes and chose instead to have repositioned my tongue a safe distance from my chomping teeth.  And finally,

4) I reminded myself that, with a pharmacist for a husband, there are always Tylenol and codeine on hand if necessary!

4 hours later, the anaesthetic wore off and what appeared instead of the numbness was … nothing.

No ache.   No tenderness.  No sharp pain.    

Absolutely no sensation out of the ordinary.    If I didn’t look at the wound, I wouldn’t have known anything disastrous had happened.

Later that night I told my husband about the incident and spontaneously opened my mouth.  Like the dentist and hygienist before him, he recoiled at the sight and turned his head away and said, “I wish I hadn’t seen that…”

As I type this story less than 24 hours later, the injury is healing more rapidly than I would have thought possible.  I’ll spare you the close-up photos but pass along my astonishment that the wound is already almost completely healed.   The tissue feels and looks healthy.

I bet my dentist wouldn’t believe it if I showed it to her.

When I experience something remarkable and real like this, I always sear it in my memory with an action.  Otherwise it’s easy to forget since ‘zero pain’ has no drama to remember it by.

So as soon as I’ve finished writing this blog post, I plan to purchase an pair of those adorable and ridiculously-priced high heeled baby booties. I will take them to my dentist, who will go into hysterical giggles over them.

And I’ll tell her that my ugly injury did not hurt, not one little bit, not one iota, ever.   And perhaps next time she has a patient who bites their tongue she will remember and soften their expectation about how it might feel.

And in these ways, I will have used this unexpected ‘neutral event’ to promote new possibilities for anyone whose life this story touches.    Including even yours!

Also, as my final word, if you want to forever change your own experience of pain or become free of the grip of old expectations about ‘what’s inevitable’ or ‘what’s impossible’, please let Ken Graydon and I help you by booking your own Remote Session.   We evaporate unwanted long-standing inner habits super quick and can help you find the really good juju that lies latent within you waiting to be tapped.

See you back here again on Tuesday, May 21 with a new post, hopefully including Ron’s story, to help you discover more of the magic you are.

I had something similar happen with my Dentist. I was about to go in the office to have a tooth removed. I was sitting in my car shaking as about 1 year ago I had similar event and it didn’t go well. I stopped myself and asked the Divine for help and guidance. The message I got was to Thank my tooth for all it has done , and now it was time for it to go, and would please make it easy.
I went in with confidence ( a first for me). The hygienist told me it may take some time to pull the tooth, and may result in surgery. I told her about my thanking the tooth. She liked that. Anyway the Dentist started in, about 6 minutes later he was done. I was shocked and delighted!!

Anything Anything is possible!

Thanks for a “Heel”-arious reminder that we exist in a state of perpetual possibility, Wendy.

Thanks Amy, Joan and Adriana. Yes, I guess I did put my money where my mouth is 🙂

That was a great illustration in what happens to us and what the outcome is, is really in our hands. You had that 4 hr “window” to play with as Linda said, how cool was that !
AND, seemed like you “let go” once you decided it was done. Thanks for sharing !! 🙂

Wendy Down May 12, 2013 at 3:48 pm

You’re welcome, Christine. It’s fun to have such a story to share.

Natasha May 11, 2013 at 6:58 pm

What a fantastic pioneer, teacher and model you are for us, Wendy – going fearlessly into the world of new possibilities and other realities! I am sorry for the loss of your good friend on this plane, but how sweet to read of your ongoing connection. This is a wonderful story, and now I’m wondering: is your pharmacist husband so used to you pulling off this kind of “magic” that he just shrugs his shoulders and smiles?

Wendy Down May 12, 2013 at 3:49 pm

That’s about it, Natasha, he just shrugs and smiles. And we often joke about it. 🙂

Wendy this is delightful! The 4 hour window of anesthetic gave you a nice window to play in! What about an energetic anesthetic? And since pain is a set of frequencies….could this be applied to the set of frequencies we call youthening?

I think that something similar happens when we are little children, and we fall and skin our knee…the parental expectation IS that it hurt, and our reading of the energy of that parent’s expectation, teaches us to respond in a specific way. One woman I know has a rough and tumble little boy, who, whenever he bumps himself or topples down, she checks him and then if he has no injury she tells him, “you’re okay! Let’s play some more!” It takes some effort on her part to refrain from the gut reaction of mothers everywhere, to panic over possible injury, but she holds her vibration neutral until she checks the boo boo.

Yes, Linda, there are lots of possibilities for rethinking things we consider inevitable. Pain and aging are two great such examples.

Thank you Wendy for sharing your story.

Stephen May 11, 2013 at 1:49 am

Wendy, Thanks for sharing.
Your story about your friend who recently passed away just reminded me of a similar story about a friend of mine. A couple years ago an old childhood friend of mine who I grew up with passed away from lung complications. My friend Tony had dyslexia and was deemed slow mentally in some ways according to doctors, yet in other ways he had a good grasp on day to day basic things. Upon coming back from South Korea for summer break, I am a teacher, I found out about my friend’s passing, and it took a while for me to believe it. About three months ago as I was back in South Korea I had this dream where my passed friend Tony was stand outside my balcony. The dream felt like it wasn’t a dream, in the dream I was still in the same apartment, my room was the same, it was still South Korea yet my friend was standing and he looks up and says “Hey, how about some hospitality?” Tony seemed different in the dream. He looked and sounded as if he had no dyslexia or sickness. I was surprised, and those words he spoke to me still ring in my ears.

That’s a beautiful connection between you and Tony, Stephen. Thanks for sharing.

How long did you have to wait before you could eat?

Wendy Down May 12, 2013 at 3:54 pm

No restrictions, Marnyka, although I didn’t eat until after the anaesthetic wore off.
