The Metaphysical Roots of Dis-Ease
Many of us are coming to understand that physical symptoms and illness often begin first in the emotional and mental realms. And while western allopathic medicine offers life saving emergency medicines, surgeries and symptom management, it often falls short addressing root cause.
Emotions, thoughts and beliefs are energy and they have a very real impact on our physiology. When emotions are suppressed they create blockages in the flow of our vital life force energy. It’s why a holistic approach that works with the subtle body combined with coaching and lifestyle change offers a more sustainable and effective path to healing.
One of my earliest teachers in holistic health was Louise Hay, whose book “You Can Heal Your Life” was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. The book contains a symptoms list of the emotional and mental root causes of health conditions.
Here are a few thought provoking examples:
Adrenal Problems: Defeatism. No longer caring for the self. Anxiety.
Anxiety: Not trusting the flow and the process of life.
Anorexia: Denying the self life. Extreme fear, self-hatred and rejection.
Lower Back Pain: Fear of money or lack of financial support
Constipation: Holding on to past wounds. Guilt over the past.
Fatigue: Resistance, boredom. Lack of love for what one does.
Hip Pain: Fear of going forward in major decisions.
Incontinence: Emotional overflow. Years of controlling emotions.
Kidney Stones: Lumps of undissolved anger.
Menopause Problems: Fear of no longer being wanted. Fear of aging. Self-rejection. Not feeling good enough.
Osteoporosis: Feeling there is no support left in life. Mental pressures and tightness.
Thyroid Gland: Humiliation. I never get to do what I want to do. When is it going to be my turn.
