Is the city you live in ruining your health?
Sometimes there is nothing more uplifting than the hustle and bustle of a big city, but just as it’s uplifting it can also be extremely draining.
Cities attract a wide variety of people from all walks of life but often along with the masses comes a massive pain-body too.
Philosopher and spiritual author, Eckhart Tolle coined the term “pain-body” to define the collective manifestation of all the pain, misery and sorrow a person has ever experienced. This includes the pain they have inherited from their culture and family history.
This pain-body exists in all of us and energetically can reverberate outwards into the Universe creating a pain-body mass.
This mass is basically the energetic measure of how much pain or chaos is radiated into the area by the people who live there and often this can either attract, or repel individuals who are seeking to heal or “activate” their own pain-body.
Of course, its not just pain that is reverberated out into the Universe, joy and love are not excluded from the picture, in fact there are areas that have been deemed high in vibrational and positive energy including Sedona in the USA, Calgary in Canada, the Ganges in India and Uluru in Australia. However, it seems that big cities especially tend to attract more people and therefore are usually more energetically dense.
High pain-body masses tend to dwell and feed in areas that experience high pollution, crime rates, suicide rates and homelessness.
According to Edgar Cayce, the famous mystic, some of the cities with the highest “pain-body mass” includes Bangkok, Beijing, Florence, London, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Moscow, New York, Nairobi, Zimbabwe, amongst others.
Just because a city carries a high “pain-body mass” however, does not mean it is not a good place to live, similarly you could say the same for a city that carries a high vibrational energy. What matters most is what city gels with your energy, your desires and who you are.
Often we get stuck where we grew up and many may not think of it as being important to move but there is a big, wide world out there and as we discover more of who we truly are, it may be worthwhile to seek a place that is in line with what you truly desire.
