Ouch! We all feel pain in our body at one point or another in our life.
The type, and where it is located, can indicate many different things.
Whether it is throbbing, stabbing, sharp, dull, aching or wandering, you need to become aware of what this pain is and what it could mean on a deeper level.
If you have not had a physical accident where you hit your body in a specific area, and you are feeling internal pain, this indicates trouble is brewing.
Pain, especially internal pain, let’s us know that energy is not moving. Somewhere inside the body there is an excess, a deficiency, or a blockage of energy.
The most dramatic pain can be felt when an organ doesn’t get the energy (blood, oxygen, nutrients) that it needs to function properly. A heart attack is a good example. People can experience an intense jab in their chest followed by a collapse of that organ, and oftentimes death.
Beyond extreme pain, we also suffer with little aches and discomforts that indicate various organs may be struggling, but they haven’t lost full functioning yet.
I received an email from a woman who said she has been gaining weight, is super-stressed, breaking out in hives, and she has a pain in her shoulder that won’t resolve. This pattern was very telling about her potential condition.
Using ancient diagnostic techniques, I can assess that her liver and gallbladder may be stressed. This information won’t show up on any blood tests because those tests are limited in their technology; they find disease when it has already manifested, and not before.
The pain in this woman’s shoulder, depending on where it is, can tell us much about her condition.
- Underneath the shoulder blade can indicate the development of a gallstone, or that there currently is one blocking the bile duct.
- The top of the shoulder can indicate constipation and that the detoxification organs are not working well. This leads to a toxic body and greater potential for cancer, especially colon cancer.
- In the center of the shoulder blade, can indicate SIBO, or other trouble in the small intestine, and that can eventually lead to a heart attack.
Where the ache is and what it feels like, speaks volumes about a person’s condition.
I’ve been using this type of pattern assessment with my clients for the past 20 years.
Pain is not necessarily a bad thing. It is a signal from the body that something is out of balance.
If we don’t do anything different to resolve the pain, or even worse, cover it up with a pain-killer, we are doing the body a huge disservice. Not getting to the root cause of that pain, inevitably sets the body up for major diseases.
I advise that people listen to their pain, understand where it may be coming from, and then make adjustments in diet, lifestyle and consciousness, to potentially avert disease from manifesting.
Don’t wait for a gallbladder attack or a heart attack to knock you to your knees doubled over in pain. Your body and organs will thank you for taking the preventative measures necessary for healing.
