The Root Cause of Your Suffering | Linda Deir -author, speaker, transition coach, trainer

“What is the root cause of your suffering?

Your suffering didn’t just happen. It first showed up one day, a long time ago. That’s been the “cause” of your suffering ever since. All suffering has a root cause. At that time, you put up with it. You compromised something in your life to experience something else. You saw “something else” as more important to your life at that time.”

A good analogy would be, you know the wheels on your car are out of alignment and you decide not to do anything about it. So, like all your previous decisions, you go right into compromise by tolerating this situation. You continue driving a car that is out of alignment and out of balance. The lesson here is, ignoring a problem will create imbalances causing you to suffer. Life begins to wear on you and maybe the wheels, in your life, fall off. When that happens, you don’t think about the root cause, that it was your fault in the first place. Instead, you start looking for someone or something to blame.

It’s in the blaming that you justified your original decision.

You tell yourself, “The decision was right, it was the correct thing for me to do at the time.”  As you continue to avoid the root cause of your suffering, blaming others is your only choice since you didn’t own up to the fact that it was you who made that bad decision. These poor decisions are rooted in that time capsule from long ago when you were ill-equipped to make them.

Ever since then, “your only way out” was to blame others.

Of course, it wasn’t your fault. You are a great decision-maker. However, when you track your life back to the day you made that decision, the day the root cause of your pain and suffering began, when the suffering you continue to experience today started, will you look at it differently. You will not only see one bad decision that started that day but to keep the compromised life going, it produced a series of bad choices. Now, what do you do? How do you go back and fix it? You must do a couple of things.

To see where bad decisions began, start by identifying the exact time in your life you made the first bad decision. What were the circumstances around how you made it? Why did you think it was so important at the time? In doing this, you will identify what happened right before you made that decision. You will remember receiving guidance warning you that it was a mistake. Receiving that guidance caused you to halt for a moment. You continued to get intuitive hits, those gut feelings that told you not to go that direction – down that lost and lonesome road once again. You are far along on your journey and think you are running out of time to fix it or make a course correction.

This feeling of urgency is guidance telling you it’s time to heal this.

It’s going to take some work on your part to unravel and own up to the bad decisions that got you to where you are today.”


  • The pain you are experiencing today came from a decision you made a long time ago.
  • You made a judgment call when you made that original decision. It was a shot in the dark.
  • You chose what you thought was pleasure over pain and now that has been reversed.

How It WorksEveryone eventually gets to the root cause of their suffering … that is, once the pain interrupts their pleasure deep enough and long enough. Pain becomes the motivator and your wake-up call. That’s what unwittingly happened in my early life. Like a pawn in some sort of pre-destined divine chess game, I met up with my Spirit Guides and Angels at the beginning of my life. Their guidance has been a game-changer for me. Your Spirit Guides don’t want you to suffer. You came into this lifetime to learn something.

It’s the urge deep inside you that becomes painful if you ignore it. If it’s painful. or you feel an urgency, then it is time to take action. Identify the root cause of your suffering, make the needed course correction … Welcome to the unfolding of who you are and why you are here. Take your journey back to where the root cause of your suffering began and restore your life. The suffering ends when you pivot, moving toward your purpose. ~ Linda Deir
