Understanding the Meaning of your Illness & Injury
I was having a conversation this morning with one of my dearest friends about her endometriosis and what that really means for her. Being the incredible healer that she is, she was telling me some of underlying emotional feelings and issues that condition represents in her body. As we chatted, it spurred me to reflect upon a recent injury I had to further explore the meaning of it.
The other day as I was rushing out the door, I tripped and ripped my entire toenail off my toe and so now am left with a deep wound and half-attached toenail. To injure the little toes, this indicates problems, trouble or over-sensitivity. If it’s on the left side, it has to do with relationships as this is the feminine side. If it’s on the right, it has to do with career as this is the masculine side. This was very interesting to me, because I really have not had the awareness of my relationship issues until this injury. As I further explored, some very insightful information began to come to the surface and reveal itself to me. I can be guarded in relationships for fear of being left, hurt or rejected. This little toenail physically being ripped off represents the deep wound that I have been hanging onto and in a sense, now serves as a reminder to let go, embrace understanding of this conflict and open myself to the truth it reveals.
Pain and illness is a funny thing. Most people don’t even correlate the two with a deeper meaning, but that is EXACTLY what is happening. The body is trying to communicate with you to bring awareness and healing to something that desperately needs to come to the surface. Since we naturally are not so inclined to listen and explore these messages, then it physically SHOWS you by bringing about symptoms, pain, illness, injury and ultimately DISEASE to effectively get your attention. Ever noticed how when someone gets diagnosed with a chronic disease, they immediately turn their focus inwards and make incredible changes in their life they never thought possible? This is the reason why; because that disease brought something to the surface that needed to be addressed and healed.
Likewise, if one doesn’t listen and try to understand what is happening within the body, it will continue to manifest into more serious and chronic conditions. Ever got an injury or illness and resisted it so much, that it just carried on forever? That is because you did not listen to the message that injury or illness was trying to tell you. You instead battled it and pushed on in an attempt to get better, and didn’t open up to the healing and insight it was trying to guide you through.
THE MIND IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BODY IS A POWERFUL THING.
SLOW DOWN AND TAKE TIME TO LISTEN TO THE BODY TO ALIGN IT WITH THE MIND.
Exploring these messages is something I am passionate about helping others with. I do energy healing sessions that channel the messages your body is trying to tell you.
