WHAT YOUR ACHES AND PAINS ARE TELLING YOU
In Western medicine illnesses are linked to genetic inheritance or environmental factors. In the East, illness indicates an obstacle in your life path that blocks the flow of energy throughout the body as well as hinders your souls purpose. Physical complaints–energetic disturbances that lead to ailments or chronic conditions–are how your soul speaks to you about whats hindering your development. This is why, given the same genetic foundation, one individual develops a specific illness while another remains in good health. As Michel Odoul shows, the proof of this lies in the clear correspondences between emotional and mental tensions and specific ailments. The author reveals how every illness or trauma is a signal of incredible precision: The part of the body affected pinpoints what your soul is trying to tell you and what you need to work through emotionally. Providing a reference grid of body-mind connections, he explains, for example, how skin conditions reflect difficulties with aggression from the outside world and knee problems indicate inflexibility or tension in relationships. He shows not only how each side of the body has specific meanings and connections to emotions, relationships, and family but also how the upper and lower halves of the body have specific connections–together forming four quadrants with unique Yin-Yang balances, where Yin represents emotional issues and Yang represents action/inaction. He also explores the role of the meridians of Chinese medicine in distributing emotional and mental energy throughout the body. Offering keys to deciphering how the soul speaks through the body, the author shows that we can learn to see physical ailments not as something caused by chance or fate but as a message from our soul. By releasing the energies and patterns they point to, we can return to a state of health and forward movement on our souls evolutionary path.
