Our belief systems affect the way we see and feel ourselves and the world as a whole. Every thought that crosses our minds raises or decreases our vibration and overall state of health.
The imbalance of each body part corresponds to a specific set of ideas that we have about reality.
These are the external body parts and their correlation to our immediate experience:
Ear – if we experience ear pain or problems, this means that there is something we refuse to hear or understand. If the ear listening capacity reduces or if deafness occurs, it is an indicator that we are ignoring some vital cues.
Eyes – when we cannot see what’s right in front of us, metaphorically speaking, our natural capacity to see clearly is lost. Nearsightedness occurs as we do not want to look within ourselves; farsightedness happens when we are too afraid to look at the world.
Neck – it represents the link between the head and the body. When the neck is stiff and tight, we are prolonging a state of rigidness; lack of flexibility is experienced as pain in the neck area.
Back – the spine supports the body; when we feel unsafe for a long time, when we become used to not minding our boundaries, pain in this region occurs. Lower back problems suggest unhealed childhood wounds and lack of material stability and upper back problems appear as we feel that the world is on our shoulders.
Legs/ Knees/ Feet – they are the elements which allow us to move through life and take action. When we experience knee problems, we are faced with the fear of change. If our mobility is reduced or even lost, this means that we feel stuck, confused or unnaturally determined to continue on a road that doesn’t serve us. Dragging our feet on the outside reflects an internal impediment we cannot solve.
Arms/ Hands/ Fingers – through these body parts we give or take. They are extensions of the heart. If we experience problems with the upper limbs, this means that we lack balance in giving and receiving.
Chest – it shields the heart. When curved inward, we have been deeply hurt and couldn’t find a way to soothe that pain. When the chest is too held up, we function too authoritatively.
Our postures, the way we look at people and the surrounding, the way we move, smile, chew, speak or touch, they are all related to thoughts and emotions that we feed on a regular basis. When a physical unbalance occurs, searching for the root cause of the ailment is crucial for healing and restoring physical, emotional and mental harmony.
