′′ Grandma, how do you deal with pain?”
′′ With my hands, honey. If you do it with your mind pain instead of softening, it hardens even more.”
′′ With my hands grandma?”
′′ Yes. Our hands are the antennas of our soul. If you make them move by sewing, cooking, painting, playing or sinking them in the land, send care signals to the deepest part of you. And your soul is soothing because you’re giving it attention. So he doesn’t need to send you pain to get noticed anymore.”
′′ Really hands are so important?”
′′ Yes, my child. Think of newborns: they start to know the world thanks to the touch of their hands. If you look at old people’s hands they tell you about their life more than any other body part. Everything that is handmade is said to be made with the heart. Because it’s really like that: hands and heart are connected. Massagers know it well: when they touch another person’s body with their hands they create a deep connection. It’s precisely from this connection that healing comes. Think of lovers: when their hands touch, they make love in the most sublime way.”
′′ My hands grandma… how long I haven’t used them like this!”
′′ Move them my darling, start creating with them and everything inside you will move. The pain won’t pass. But it will turn into the most beautiful masterpiece. And it won’t hurt anymore. Because you managed to embroidery its essence.”

How do you deal with Pain?

” Grandma how do you deal with pain?”
” With your hands, dear. When you do it with your mind, the pain hardens even more.”
“With your hands, grandma?”
” Yes, yes. Our hands are the antennas of our soul. When you move them by sewing, cooking, painting, touching the earth or sinking it into the earth, they send signals of caring to the deepest part of you and your soul calms down.
This way she doesn’t have to send pain anymore to show it.
” Are hands really that important?”
” Yes my girl. Thinking of babies: they get to know the world thanks to their touches. When you look at the hands of older people, they tell more about their lives than any other part of the body. Everything that is made by hand, so is said, is made with the heart because it really is like this: hands and heart are connected. Masseuses know this: When they touch another person’s body with their hands, they create a deep connection. Thinking of lovers: When their hands touch, they love each other in the most sublime way.”
” My hands grandma… how long haven’t I used them like that!”
” Move them my girl, start creating with them and everything in you will move. The pain will not pass away. But it will be the best masterpiece. And it won’t hurt anymore. Because you managed to embroider your essence.”

How do you cope with pain?

“Grandma, how do you cope with pain?”
“With your hands, honey. If you do it with your mind instead of relieving the pain, it toughens even harder.”
“With your hands grandma?”
“Yes, our hands are the antennae of our soul. If you move them; knitting, cooking, painting, playing or sinking them into the ground, you send care signs to the deepest part of you and your soul lights up because you’re paying attention to it. Then signs of pain will no longer be necessary.”
“Hands are really that important?”
“Yes my daughter. Think of babies: they start to know the world through the touch of their hands. If you look at the hands of old people, they tell you more about their life then any body part. Everything that is done by hand is said to be done with the heart. Because it’s really like this: hands and heart are connected. Masseurs know well: when they touch someone with their hands, they create a deep connection. It is precisely from this connection that healing comes. Think of lovers: when they touch their hands, they make love in a more sublime way.”
“My hands grandma…. how long I haven’t used them like this!”
“Move them, my love. Begin to create with them and everything within you will begin to move. The pain will not pass away. And instead what you do with them will become the most beautiful masterpiece and it won’t hurt anymore. Because you have been able to transform its essence.”
