Lets begin this blog by revisiting Yin/Yang. Lets divide our body in two, the left side is the Yin, our feminine side & the right side is the Yang, our masculine side. Yin is our feelings & Yang is our logic. How important do you think it is to have Yin/Yang well cleared and balanced? Very!
When we go through difficult situations in life like a break up, death of a loved one, loss of something meaningful to us, for e.g., We tend to react, in different ways of course trying to deal with the pain. Some of us vent and confide in a trusted friend or shrink. Some of us hold it in, hide it inside, lock it away and throw away the key. Some of us may turn to drinking or other addictions to numb the pain. Others turn to working out, which is great for releasing the stress, BUT does not heal the root of the problem, the emotion. Others turn to their work making work their only and very first priority in life. BUT what we must understand and learn now is that when we do these things, react in these ways, we are NOT healing the emotion! We are NOT healing the emotions that will sit on our energy centers causing us more pain and illnesses.
So lets see which emotions sit where and some of the side effects you will feel as a result of not healing the emotion.
Throat center is our communication center. Right to speak and be heard. When blocked/hurt, we will experience lack of trust, self expression issues, lack of nurturing, to name a few.. Also Thyroid problems.
Heart center is our social identity, the right to be loved and love. We may feel grief, sadness, loss, sorrow, lack of love and many more negative feelings.
Fear center is our power center, ego identity, right to act. We hold fears and phobias here. We feel loss of control. Fear of losing control. The big “R”, Relationships. Abusive authority. Imbalance of power in a relationship. All this baggage will cause all kinds of health issues and chronic fatigue. Liver and spleen issues.
Then we have the Old Stuff center. Family sexual issues and creative center. Is our emotional identity, our right to Feel. Childhood conditioning. Violation of the body and personal space. Something done to us, taken away from us. Molestation, abuse, rape. Trapped emotions in this area can cause problems in the gut, digestion and affect the female cycle. Unresolved emotions will set like cement here. We can get hip and spine problems as well.
Last is our Survival center, physical identity, our right to have. When blocked we feel weak, like we will not survive a life threatening incident. We have survival issues, violations related to surviving like accidents, abuse, rape. Impotence, frigidity. Feeling of abandonment, self rejection, judgement by others, self betrayal, betrayal by someone trusted, pain in the heart.
Problems with right side legs/knees/ankles can reflect feelings of lack of support in career, finances. Can also be a way of showing you to take stock of the situation. Problems with left side legs/knees/ankles can reflect feelings of lack of emotional support. Old injuries that still cause pain are due to unresolved emotional stuff and can be evident for years!
Please start healing your emotions deep within.
