How do you release these emotions and relieve the aches and pains?
A good strategy that I find works is to acknowledge the emotion. For example, if you have an ache in your shoulders (emotion of burden/responsibility) that just wont go away ask yourself the following the questions:
- What responsibilities do I have?
- Am I taking on too much?
- Am I feeling responsible for someone else s’ actions?
- What can I do to feel less burdened?
- Can I ask for help/assistance?
I think once you have identified the link between your emotions and your body you can move forward in a positive way enabling your body to release that energy. Thus releasing your backache.
Yours in Health.
