Cedarfire-"Secondary Gain: Keeping Your Reality From Manifesting" by Jeri Noble

Cedarfire-"Secondary Gain: Keeping Your Reality From Manifesting" by Jeri Noble:

"Secondary gain is a psychiatric term meaning that a person has a hidden reason for holding onto an undesirable condition. Frequently this reason is unconscious. It is obviously unconscious because the loss of holding onto the condition is often far greater than the perceived gain.
For example, this term is often used in chronic pain management. Chronic pain is pain that continues on past the time of an injury being healed, often having no apparent cause in the present. Finding and releasing the perception of secondary gain, such as the attention one receives, monetary compensation for disability, or just the need to deny the original cause of the pain, can greatly contribute to healing.
In metaphysics, we have found the term 'secondary gain' to be very helpful, particularly when we seem to run into barriers to manifesting our good. This occurs when we put a great deal of energy into visualizing, affirming and treating for a new level of good and it either doesn't happen or the situation actually gets worse. This is a signal that there may be an issue of secondary gain, that for some reason, our subconscious mind feels more secure staying in our disadvantaged state rather than going for improvement.
I've done a lot of work with a variety of different clients researching this phenomenon, and have found some interesting aspects to it."
