Default wow!

Thank you so much for these metaphysical spins on our shoulder woes, everyone! In retrospect, makes complete sense to me ~ also helps me to understand better when current problems with my shoulders occur.

Out of every negative, comes a positive -- I'm terribly sorry for your pain, Wolfdog, and do pray it's alleviated some by now -- and am grateful for the helpful contributions that your request for light generated.

Thank you and love to all!

One method I have found useful for me in relieving pain is breathing deep, relaxing, and peacefully saying “There is no pain where the Presence of God is, and I AM that Presence”.
