BODY WISDOM- What you need to know

The body is an instrument of the mind

The body is an instrument, the mind its function, the witness and reward of its operation. George Santayana

I love these quotes because it is so true and yet how many people do not think of the body as an instrument of the mind? The body will always do, always, what the mind tells it to do. By shifting your mindset from negative to positive you can achieve great health!

In this blog I would like to share with you what each part of your body from the eyebrow to the neck, is “emotionally” responsible for.

The Brow area is the intuitive centre & emotional expression, meaning we move the eyebrows when we talk, creating different facial expressions. The showing of emotions has an influence on relationships.

The Forehead is our intellectual expression. This area is rubbed with the expression of thought.

The Eyes show how we see the world. Your perception, point of view, etc..

The Nose is related to the heart, sense of smell, sexual response, self recognition. Different scents affect your brain in different ways as well as your emotional wellbeing.

The Mouth is survival issues, how we take in nourishment, security and our capacity to take in new ideas. This is your way of verbal expression and communication.

The Jaw holds tension and always indicates a blockage in emotional and verbal communication expression.

The Face, expresses our personality and how we face the world.

The Ears our capacity to hear, to listen. They have acupuncture points for the whole body. What is it that you are unwilling to hear? Are you listening to your inner guidance?

The Throat holds communication issues. Are you telling the truth? Are you expressing your feelings? Are you being true to yourself? Are you holding back?

The Neck this is where thought and emotion come together. Stiffness in the neck is due to withheld statements, experience of stress and anxiety.

When you clear, activate, unblock, your chakras or energy centres you give way to clear energetic flow to come to and through you. Alleviating and reducing anxiety, stress, and giving you back the confidence and ability to freely express yourself! The benefits of energy healing are many. Reiki and EFT are two major techniques which I have used for years and I have many wonderful testimonials.

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.
