Body Wisdom Part 2


Welcome to my Body Wisdom Part 2 blog. There is  great information here that I am glad to share with you. Last blog I ended with the neck.. lets continue today with the rest of our body parts. Here it goes:

~ Shoulders: We all know when we stress we carry it on our shoulders (and back). You might feel as though your life is too stressful or that you put yourself last on your list of priorities. Woman in particular store  a lot here!

~ Chest: Our chest pays the price when we have relationship issues, heart/love emotions, respiration and circulation.. Also self esteem and feelings of worthlessness, suppressed emotions and feeling controlled by others.

~ Solar Plexus: Power issues, emotional control issues, power and wisdom centre.

~ Abdomen: This is our seat of emotions! Our deepest feelings sit here. Centre of sexuality and digestive system.

~ Genitals: Related to Root Chakra, survival issues, fear of life.

~ Arms and hands: Are extensions of the heart centre, expresses love and emotion.

~ Upper arm: Strength to act, fear of being discouraged. Elbow, connects the strength of the upper arm to the action of the forearm.

~ Hands: Right hand is  associated with giving and receiving. Left hand and the details of life represents holding onto reality, reaching goals, fear of action. What issues can you not handle?

~ Back: Is where we store all our unconscious emotions and excess tension. Associated with stored anger and resentment, as well as money issues. Upper back we store anger. Lower back, man in particular store a lot here due to the storing of emotions in the belly.

~Gluteus muscles: Holding in emotions- not releasing and letting go, anal blockage.

~ Thigh: Personal strength, trust in your own abilities.

~ Knees: Fear of death and fear of death of old self or ego. Fear of change. 

~ Lower leg: Enables movement toward goals, fear of action. Ankles create balance. Do you need to change direction? Is your life unbalanced?

~ Feet: Associated with security and survival, connected with reading our goals and completing tasks, fear of taking the next step and feeling grounded.

Pretty interesting I'd say! Knowing this helps you get to know your body at a deeper level and understand it more now. Pay attention to what your body tries to tell you and keep an open mind when to comes to ways to heal your body. Alcohol and drugs are not the answer and it blocks you way more! I am here to help you and guide you. Do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I am glad to help in any way I can.




Where we Hold our Emotions


I thought I would share this information on my website as I find it very helpful and in all honesty it was not until I became a Reiki Practitioner that I became more  aware of this. I know you will find it helpful. 

In our body we hold many emotions as you know.... but the emotions that the front of our body and the back of our body holds are different. Same as right side of the body and left side, top and bottom hold different emotions.

~Front of our Body is our "social mask". It contains the emotional issues of daily life, love, sadness, joy, concern and so on. Heart ache is stored in the chest, between the ribs and inside of the shoulders. A lot of emotion is stored in the belly area AKA Solar Plexus.

~Back of the Body stores our unconscious thoughts and emotions. It's where we hide issues that we are NOT prepared to handle. It is our disposal area for all the things we do not want to acknowledge. A lot of fear and anger is stored between the shoulder blades, and along the spinal muscle on either side of the spine.

Now we are going to get into the YIN/YANG :).

~Right side of the Body is Masculine: rational, assertive, Yang, male aspects of character & holds anger.

~Left side of the Body is Feminine: Intuitive, receptive, passive, Yin, feminine aspects of character & holds sadness. The key here is to have our Yin/Yang equally balanced. There are breathing exercises to help us achieve this and also of course, alignment of our energy centres. Regular Reiki, Yoga practice can get us there :).

~Top and Bottom Body Division: Small top and large bottom finds difficulty in socializing, self assertion, taking action, expressing thoughts and ideas. 

~Large top and small bottom: Overdeveloped assertiveness, social, expressive, extroverted. Active personality and lack of strength and courage concerning stability and support.

~Limbs: allow as to move in space. Most active parts of the body in regard to the outside world.

~Torso: is the Core of the body! Very innactive regarding the outside world and it tends to be more reflective and focused on the self.
