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.
