The Gift of Pain

About The Gift of Pain

Life is magical and beautiful. And when we are in pain it does not feel that way.

It’s completely natural to want to avoid pain, Because it feels “bad,” we instinctively resist it, ignore it, override it, and generally try to get rid of it as quickly as possible. Sometimes, we try to numb ourselves or escape – through painkillers, drugs, or alcohol; through distractions like shopping and overworking; or even through exercise or spiritual practices – because those are the only tools we know for dealing with it.

But what if pain isn’t the problem at all?

The truth is, pain is simply a message designed to get your attention. It isn’t a punishment. It’s a gift.

With more than 35 years as a physical therapist, energy healer, and a life coach, Helen MacMillan has helped countless people process and find the gifts in pain’s various forms—physical, emotional, and spiritual. In this book, she shares her simple yet powerful 5-step method to help you break the cycle of pain, release limiting beliefs and habits, shift your mindset, and transform your life.

Through deeply personal stories from both her own life and the lives of her clients, she shows how you, too, can find the gift in your pain – as well as a greater sense of peace, healing, love, and acceptance than you ever thought possible.

If you are a human being, you have experienced pain in one form or another. Pain is a revelatory teacher, and had I known its true wisdom, I might not have resisted it for as long as I did. It took me until my mid-40’s to understand it as an invitation to reveal, feel and heal my way back home to myself, and while it’s never comfortable, I now understand it to be the true guide that it is. Helen has graced us with a beautiful testament to pain and its many gifts in her beautiful book. Not only will you appreciate her insight, but you will welcome her as a seasoned guide to help you through the hardest parts

What an extraordinary gift Helen MacMillan has given us with THE GIFT OF PAIN. In language that is as sparkling and clear as life-giving water, this relatable work doesn’t shy away from Helen’s own passage through pain. Instead, she reveals the dark country of her own grief, depression, and self-doubt before showing us, stumbling step by step, her own path to awareness and healing. In a voice that is compassionate, loving, trustworthy, and wise, Helen encourages us to embrace our own journey through difficult emotions, recognizing them as messengers that can point the way toward growth and restoration. Without judgment, and with complete faith in our ability to love ourselves back to wholeness, Helen guides us in how we can heed the lessons of our physical and spiritual bodies to create expansion, lightness, and peace. A beautiful and necessary book!”
