June 2018 Newsletter

Hello, and a joyous jubilant June to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. Today's issue is about puzzling symptoms, and how to start deciphering what they might mean. Enjoy!

What is that symptom trying to tell me?
 sore knee If you drop something heavy on your foot, or bang a part of your body against a hard object and feel pain as a result, the cause is obvious. If you think a bone is broken, medical treatment is in order. Otherwise the standard RICE therapy of Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation should take care of the problem.

Other pains can have multiple or mysterious causes, with no clear connection between any cause you can think of and the effect you feel. Let's say you wake up with a sore neck. Did you sleep in a contorted posture? Was your shoulder workout at the gym too vigorous, and you didn't stretch enough after it? Have you been craning your neck forward when driving, or when looking at your cell phone? The body will put up with poor alignment for a little while, then will start complaining to you with aches and soreness.

 neck pain from peering at a cell phone Let's stay with the sore neck for a few minutes. The body's messages can be metaphors, as well as literal. Is it possible someone in your life is "a pain in the neck"? This could be your boss, or that annoying relative. If so, all the RICE treatment you give your neck will only be of limited benefit, until the other situation is addressed too.
In my years of EFT or "tapping" study and training, I've seen that physical body pains can come from holding onto emotional hurts. Once the emotional situation is clearly understood and dealt with, the physical pain usually starts decreasing too. This can happen even when that pain seemed firmly stuck in place for years.
 woman with sore shoulder One of my favorite examples of this is from an EFT workshop, about a woman with severe shoulder pain. She'd visited doctors about it and hadn't gotten any relief. The teacher questioned her as to when the pain had started, which was as her youngest child was getting ready to leave for college. The wise teacher led us in a round of tapping, saying "My arms are empty now that my baby is leaving home" and "My shoulder doesn't have a job any longer". The light of understanding came on in the woman's eyes. And yes, her shoulder pain decreased considerably.

So before you grab for that painkiller, or for your phone to call the doctor, take a few minutes to think about your new symptom. What kind of extra stress have you been under lately -- could this be related? I've often felt that my own body is wiser than my busy brain, and I'm never sorry when I listen to it and try to give it what it needs. I'm hoping you'll do the same.
