Supporting Your Spine So It Can Support You

Man bent over with back painMany years ago when I was a child, my father, who was a hydraulic engineer, developed a slipped disc and as was prescribed by the medical profession of the day, was confined to his bed for months. Lying on a hard surface, day after day with only our collie dog for company, was not only painful but demoralising for a man who took pride in his career as well as his role as a provider for his family.

Each day after school I would take over his care, crouching at the end of his bed and pulling on his ankles in an attempt to relieve some of his suffering. What help I could provide, I will never know but perhaps in this small way, he felt connected again to life outside his bedroom.

As I look back now, I remember snippets of information that give me a new perspective about the stress and pressure my father was under leading up to this time. Of course I can’t be sure of all the details but I do have a strong memory of my Dad complaining strongly about his bully of a boss. For political reasons, this man undermined my father at every turn, overlooked him for a well deserved promotion and increased his work load at every turn.

I remember at one time he gained a German client and he was expected to learn a new language in a very short time. Between last minute trips to Germany, Switzerland and Aberdeen, from oil rigs to nuclear submarines, his life was hectic and constantly disrupted due to work pressures. At times he lived away from home during the week, returning briefly at the weekend to see his family. I truly feel he believed he as powerless to change his situation and that the weight of responsibility was overwhelming.

Now that I understand the link between overload and back pain, it really is no wonder that he developed a slipped disc. Certainly if I knew then what I know now, I could have done a lot more to relieve his suffering. As a result of watching my Dad suffer I now dedicate my life to helping other people not only relieve painful symptoms but also to understand the link between our emotions and our body.

   “Health is an announcement of agreement between your body, mind and spirit. Honour your body, keep it in good shape. When you are not healthy, look to see which parts of you disagree. Your body will demonstrate the truth to you. Notice what it is showing you, listen to what it is saying”. – Neale Donald Walsh

What Your Body Wants To Hear

Release, Heal & Transform

In a world where so many of us are overwhelmed by work responsibilities, financial pressures and the need to be all things to all people, it is unsurprising that statistics report that approximately 13% of adults in the United States and 8% of adults in the United Kingdom visit their doctor with complaints of lower back and neck pain.

Man holding his sore neckAnd in fact, up to 49% of people diagnosed with chronic pain need time off work to recuperate and often require specialist treatment which costs the economy billions in health care. Many of these people lose their jobs or are forced to change career path as they can no longer cope with their daily activities. The stress and financial difficulty that often accompanies back pain can lead to relationship breakups and the loss of home.

The discs in our spine are protective, shock-absorbing pads between the bones of our vertebrae. Whilst you cannot actually ‘slip a disc’, an injury can occur that may cause the disc to bulge, split or rupture. In the same way that a tire can go flat and put extreme pressure on the rim of the wheel, the leakage of protective gel from a collapsed disc puts pressure on the spinal cord or on the adjacent nerves causing localised pain, weakness and numbness and spreading to other parts of the body which are supplied by the affected nerve.

In the diagram below, you can clearly see the emotions which are linked to the various parts of your spine.

As herniated or slipped discs are most common in the lower back, it is easy to see the connection between financial worries, fear of the future, issues in our relationships, too much responsibility and the often stressful life we lead.

Whilst not all pain in the back or neck is caused by disc damage, pain and loss of mobility occur in almost every instance. When we feel unsupported, unloved or carry too many burdens, it is our upper back that often crumbles under the pressure.

Our neck is often affected by indecision, inflexibility, helplessness, an inability to express your feelings and that someone is a ‘pain in the neck’.

And the middle of our back is impacted by feelings of guilt, anger, worry and feeling trapped in a situation we want to ‘back’ out of.

As a child, I didn’t realise how frightening my father’s injury must have been for my parents. Whilst my mother was a full-time teacher, the pressure of a mortgage, school fees for myself and my sister as well as the day to day expenses of running a household must have appeared daunting to say the least. Everything they had worked so hard for would have been devastated if my father had lost his job. Needless to say, as financial pressure mounted, its amazing that my father managed to heal at all. It took a long time but these days we have so much more understanding of the link between stress and illness that we can heal ourselves much more quickly.

My What Your Body Wants To Hear healing guided meditations for Total Spinal Support target the various emotions which impact each area of the neck and back. Not only will you experience a relief of symptoms but you will also feel lighter mentally and emotionally. By addressing the underlying emotional issues I often witness what until now, would have been called healing miracles. By dealing with painful emotions, we get out of our body’s way to heal itself.

I often look back to when my father was so incapacitated and wish I had known then what I know now; that our emotions have such a huge influence on the health of our bodies. Stress, worry, excess responsibility and a need to hold everything together can be catastrophic for the health of our spine. Knowing that the spine is what holds us together, you can perhaps understand that as we struggle with feelings of overwhelm, so does our spine.

Here are just a few words from others who have benefited from using my What Your Body Wants To Hear Total Spinal Support healing meditations.

Leslie, Kathy and Steve Tell Their Stories of Relief From Back Pain in their own words.

It was SUCH a gift to get the recordings and be able to listen to them last night. Sometimes you just need a little help from a friend, you know? I slept so well, and this morning, I felt about 60-70 percent better. I am impressed with your deep insight into what can be held in our backso many of the statements resonated so strongly with me.”

Leslie

“I have gone from dragging myself across the floor every morning in complete agony and dosing myself up on painkillers to being able to walk completely unaided and pain free and drug free”.

After suffering from upper back pain for the last 4 weeks I purchased the Full Spine set of recordings.

The Lower Back carries feelings of being unsupported financially and/or emotionally. It is also where we hold feelings of wanting to “back out” of relationships or situations.  If you suffer from lower back pain, think back to when it began. What was going on in your life at the time? Lower back pain often coincides with anniversaries, birthdays, retirement or even children leaving home. These occasions confront us with our own mortality and can bring up deep layers of fear and insecurity about what lies ahead or about our standing in life.

To get the very best results from this transcript, suspend your disbelief for a little while. Ignore that insistent voice which says “this is not true”, “this is not how my body really is”.

It takes time and repetition to change habits and beliefs which are rooted in the subconscious mind, so be patient with yourself. The best time to reach and reprogramme the subconscious mind is when you meditate, daydream or are deeply relaxed.

Others Describe Their Experiences Using This Meditation

I can move without pain. Today suddenly I had back pain and I found you. Thank you again and again, my back is a bit better and I can move without pain. Warmest regards, Nalini.

I have had back pain most of my life. I literally felt the pain leave my back and become transformed to love and light and forgiveness.thank you thank you thank you!” Russele Snow

I have gone from dragging myself across the floor every morning in complete agony and dosing myself up on painkillers, to being able to walk completely unaided and pain free and drug free. My family and friends have always known me to have a bad back. The condition has affected me since childhood. But over the last few months it became progressively worse until I was unable to walk unaided. Each morning I would crawl on my hands and knees to the living room, where I would lie on the floor waiting for strong prescribed pain medication to take effect. The medication always makes me drowsy and unable to drive or work as well as I would like to. One morning, while lying on the floor, I knew the situation urgently had to change and I needed to find an alternative solution. This is when I discovered Barbara Clark’s back healing meditation. Barbara’s voice is beyond being soothing and gentle. When she speaks it feels like being deeply comforted and her voice feels like warm blankets of energy wrapping me up and shielding me from pain. I can honestly say that the results of Barbara’s meditation are quite simply astounding. I have gone from dragging myself across the floor every morning in complete agony and dosing myself up on painkillers, to being able to walk completely unaided and pain free and drug free. I highly recommend Barbara’s meditations. Thank you so much Barbara.” Steve Wentworth

I felt about 60-70 percent better!! My goodness!  I must say I have experienced great improvement already from your wonderful recordings!  Your voice is so soothing, as is the music, and each time, I definitely reach what I call “zero point”== a VERY relaxed and deeply rejuvenating place!  And I am happy to report that every time I get up afterward, there is definite improvement in the pain and stiffness in my back!!  I must say that I was at quite a low point last night, after two weeks of attempting to help myself feel better, seeing energy healers here in Hout Bay, South Africa, and resting and praying, and doing my own brand of energy work (MAP, Reiki, visualizations), and STILL in pain — actually it had gotten much worse again.  It was SUCH a gift to get the recordings and be able to listen to them last night (and twice today)!  Sometimes you just need a little help from a friend, you know?

I slept so well, and this morning, I felt about 60-70 percent better!!  I am also impressed with your deep insight into what can be held in our back– so many of the statements resonated so strongly with me!  I could feel my root chakra opening and the energy moving powerfully as I released those many, many emotions and beliefs– and I will continue to do so.
 
Well, thank you again for all you BE and all you share!  Please feel free to use any or all of the above in a testimonial in any way you choose!
Much gratitude and love,
Leslie
