Emotional Pain In The Joints

Let us talk about pain.  Sometimes, a new client will arrive for a Reiki session to help them relax or counteract the toll that anxiety has on their body, mind, and soul. As part of my intake procedure, I ask many questions to refine their emotional imbalance need down to a core issue. Emotional pain can often relate to a body part.

  • Fear is in the knees,
  • decision making is in the ankles,
  • ego pressure shows up in the elbows,
  • spine is about support,
  • the neck is usually about the will,
  • shoulders are about carrying burdens.

Let’s say that a person comes in with a chronic back issue.  After a bit of conversation, it turns out that they are also in a relationship where they feel unsupported- materially, emotionally, financially or any other definition of support.  No matter how many chiropractic treatments, massages, or physical therapy, the pain always returns.   During this conversation, I usually tune into many different layers relating to the pain they are looking to release.  This level of detail is incredibly important because the treatment always fits the cause.  A physical cause will heal through a physical means.  Emotional pain in joints is always treatable in an emotional way.  As the conversation continues, the treatment unfolds.

As a child, we have the crying mechanism to recover from all types of pain.  This natural release is not always necessary as an adult.  Don’t get me wrong.  Crying happens when certain issues and memories flood into focus.  I use modalities that are appropriate for each case such as Active Memory Technique from BodyTalk, yogic breathing techniques, and Ho’oponopono from Hawaiian Kahuna practice. The particular therapy seems not to be as important as the fact that the mind and the heart have done something in the direction of healing.  I like to call this a “permission slip” to quote one of my favorite gurus.  Emotional people cry, intellectuals need to talk and reason, and kinesthetic people usually need a hug.  We are all a combination of these personality types.

The emotional heart can heal and forgive almost anything if it is relied upon to function as a release mechanism. No matter what we have experienced, the heart will keep on beating.

Healing Of Mind Body And Soul

I use different approaches to healing people.  This is because we are all wired differently:

  • Athletes usually require physical touch,
  • writers need words and breathing (the process of speaking words),
  • Intellectuals require mental constructs,
  • Feelers need to feel a connection.

Of course we are all a mix of many of these personality types.  Healing therefor should mirror the personality type.  As a multidisciplinary healer, I interact with many different types of people.  If you were to ask them how I shifted them into a healthier state, you would have many different stories.  For some I use a healing modality, similar to Adam Dreamhealer, that is a distance style healing energetic mental construct.  In this altered state of consciousness, I shift around colorful energy ribbons of light like a jigsaw puzzle until the energies align better.  I helped someone regain their vision using this technique.  With chronic body joints misalignment, I gently roll each joint in 360 degree angles and ask the joints to find a proper alignment.  Many joint issues require an emotional release combined a sequential realignment from the toes to the hips, and from the finger tips to the shoulder complex.  The joints communicate with each other through compression and alignment.  By gently rolling the joints sequentially, I can foster better joints.

Words and shifts in awareness, can also alleviate someone’s painful condition.  I remember helping an intellectual doctor cure his own chronic neck issue by shifting his energetic focus in his body.  By getting this man to use sacred geometry (merkabah), he was able to fix himself instantly.  I showed him how to visualize his etheric energy field as a perfect ball of light around his body.  As he did this, we both heard a loud popping sound as his neck found its perfect alignment.  This was a man who lived with chronic neck pain for many years.  Perhaps seeing himself from an energetic state was enough to release everything that didn’t belong.

I look forward to challenges.

When we work together, all I ask is for people to come with an open mind or open heart and a willingness to shift themselves into a higher plane of health and wellness.
