Being connected with oneself means hearing and understanding the signals that our body sends us Indeed, our body speaks to us, through pain, disease and health as a whole. Because of the frenetic pace of life imposed by our modern society, this connection is weakening, we do not always take the time to listen to our emotions and therefore we are less and less able to understand why certain things happen to us (for example, why do I wake up every night at the same time?). It is by re-establishing this connection with our feelings that we will be able to rebalance ourselves and naturally find the path to health and well-being! 🙏
The link between pain and emotion
The way we feel physically is often related to our psychological state. This is why it is necessary to stay connected to our emotions, in order to understand the cause of any physical discomfort and to be able to heal it. 🙂
Illness and pain are the means through which our body talks to us and tells us that something is wrong. Before health problems occur, our bodies send us various signals to warn us that something needs to change. These signals can be: pain, weakness, discomfort….
Yoga, in all its forms (asanas, pranayamas, meditation…), is an excellent natural solution to stay in great shape. Indeed, these practices help us reconnect to our deep needs and better manage our emotions !
« To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear »
Healing your body by healing your emotions
All the emotions that you withhold because you cannot or will not verbalize them are imprinted in different parts of your body.
Of course, it is not necessary to generalize, the origin of a pain can be simply mechanical. But if you can’t find an explanation at this level, try to reconnect to your deeper emotions to find the cause… Alternative medicines, yoga and meditation classes can also help you to relieve your pain naturally.
Diseases and their emotional causes:
- Panic can cause diarrhea.
- Restrained anger or resentment: a liver attack.
- Difficulty in finding or assuming one’s place: can cause repeated urinary infections.
- Something you don’t want to hear or when you don’t listen to yourself: ear infections, earaches.
- Something we didn’t dare say, something we kept inside: sore throats.
- A refusal to give in or obey: knee problems.
- Fear of the future, of change, of not having enough money: lumbar pain.
- Intransigence, rigidity: neck pain and stiff neck.
- Conflict with authority: shoulder pain.
- Taking too much upon yourself: shoulder pain with the feeling of a heavyweight.
- Facing a situation or a person without allowing oneself to express, biting the bullet: dental pains, mouth ulcers, abscesses.
- Inability to move forward: pain in feet and ankles.
- Poorly managed separation conflict, low self-esteem towards others, paying too much attention to what others may think of us: eczema, acne, psoriasis.
