This is my truth. It comes from personal experience as well as from being a massage therapist and energy worker for over a decade. Our emotions become physical if they are not dealt with and it doesn't have to be as drastic as cancer to see the signs.
A while back I wrote a blog about the warts on my foot that would not go away. I had tried every physical solution that doctors and naturopaths could recommend but they persisted. Then one day I began looking into the spiritual meaning behind warts and their placement. I treated them again with a treatment I had tried before but this time also with love and acceptance for what they represented on an emotional/spiritual level. They cleared up and I have not had one since.
Recently I began having pain in my foot as a bunion began to form, seemingly out of nowhere. Bunions run in my family and knowing this I have seldom worn heels or pointed shoes in order to avoid it. Not only does it appear one is forming but my mom and aunt agreed that it was much faster progressing than any of them experienced.
Despite trying the exercises and stretches and buying new shoes it seems to persist. So I have been looking into the spiritual interpretation of what is happening. (Yes, it is interesting that I still don't see to do that as a first resort for myself despite frequently being asked by others to help interpret theirs... a discussion for another time.)
The foot, once again, is about grounding and a foundation. It is the base of power as well as your ability to move forward. And in this case, there is a feeling of pressure or not enough space. Somewhere in my life I have an issue of feeling there is not enough space for me. It sits at the foundation. And now I know what that is.
This realization led to a couple great discussions with the amazing people in my life. Now I begin the process of healing that feeling both with affirmations and shifting my reality and environment to be sure I am giving myself space. It is powerful stuff.
Are you having any physical ailments that seem to not go away with traditional solutions? Or is there something you would like to try to heal without going through some of the drastic traditional solutions of our society? I invite you to look into the spiritual and emotional interpretations of these ailments. It is amazing how much faster the healing goes when it is addressed at the core level.
I'm so grateful to have finally taken the time to feel into the issue. I'm grateful for the powerful interpretation that was waiting for me there. And I'm grateful to take steps to nurture and heal this both energetically (spiritually) and physically.
I'm grateful for the amazing people in my life that remind me to take care of myself as I take care of others. I'm grateful for the reminder to practice what I "preach" and I'm grateful for self-forgiveness for neglecting this aspect of my healing ability. I'm grateful to know I am doing my best and I'm grateful to know that I can heal this now that I am in tune with the core issue.
May you live today in bliss and health. May you find love for the situations you experience. May you find balance in the spiritual and physical. Have a beautiful day and weekend!
