Energy flows where Consciousness goes. Perhaps you have heard this said, and it is true.  Do you have a pain in the body?  By focusing your attention there, the pain will seem worse.  Yes, pain calls your attention to a challenge so that you can deal with it.  Once you have dealt with it to the extent of your ability, find another focus, perhaps using a mantra—a positive phrase you can repeat—to move consciousness to another focus and get it flowing more easily.  You have far more control than you may realize, and when you reach the limit of your control, turn your challenges over to your angels, who are waiting to assist you as you ask. 

You are so very loved.
