303: Dr. Michelle DiBiase: How to Choose Power Over Pain

Dr. Michelle DiBiase, a graduate of Georgia State University and Life College of Chiropractic, has been in private practice with her husband since 1999.

Through the years, they have helped thousands of sufferers feel better again and adopt healthy lifestyle habits for whole-body healing. When confronted with chronic pain patients, Dr. DiBiase discovered that clinical findings did not always match the patient’s symptoms and that hidden, deep-rooted emotions were often involved.

From that discovery, she developed the POP Method, a simple, step-by-step approach that anyone could use to address those hidden, anchored feelings and relieve their pain.

Dr. DiBiase has dedicated herself to helping others find their power and to reach their highest potential. She lives in Waycross, Georgia, with her loving husband, John, and her two beautiful daughters, Ruby and Isabelle.

Key Points

1. Your Emotional Struggles Can Cause Physical Pain

When most people are struggling with pain, they fail to realize that often times, their pain is caused by a mental or emotional problem and not a physical problem.

This could stem from childhood trauma, a tragic event, or simply personal insecurity.

Whatever the case, you need to accept that your pain may not be a physical ailment and be willing to do the internal work necessary to fix it.

2. Identify What Your Key Emotions Are Causing Your Pain

If you have come to the conclusion that your pain is being caused by your emotional state, the first step that you need to take is to identify which emotions are leading to the pain.

Examine your life, both past, and present, for any potential traumas that might be leading to physical issues.

This does not have to be something big either.

It could simply be a belief that your genetics leave you predisposed for a certain ailment, something you were told when you were younger, or an insecurity that you developed about yourself.

Be willing to take a long look at yourself and uncover exactly where the pain is coming from because until you do, you will not be able to fix it.

3. Reframe Your Pain and Become Grateful

Once you have uncovered the emotional anchors that are holding you down, you need to reframe them and find a way to be grateful for them.

The simple truth is, it is hard to be in pain when you are in a state of gratitude and love.

Whatever past pain or hurt you are suffering from, there is something within it to be grateful for.

Even the most traumatic and terrible events that you have faced have a silver lining.

Whether they have simply molded you into a stronger person or allowed you to speak love into someone’s life who faced a similar struggle, you can always find a reason to be grateful.

4.Decide Whether Your Emotions Are Serving You

Before the final step in the healing process can take place, you must examine your emotions and decide whether or not they are serving you on the path to becoming your strongest self.

Is the anger, grief, bitterness, or self-loathing adding anything to your life?

Is it making you a better, stronger, or more grounded man?

Examine your emotions without bias and be brutally honest with yourself.

You can never truly move on until you are willing to remove the mask and be vulnerable with yourself and others.

5. Release the Pain

Once you have built a sense of gratitude for your struggles and developed a clear list of reasons why your current emotional state is no longer empowering you, it is time to release the pain.

Let it go.

Accept it for what it was.

Be grateful for how it helped you become the man you are, but accept that you no longer need it in your life and let it go.
