3 Key Emotional Reasons for Broken, Sprained & Swollen Ankles
A Spate of Ankle Injuries!
I have heard a few stories recently about injured ankles so thought I’d write a brief post about what is really going on with us when we hurt our ankles. On the face of it you might say it’s just down to the wintry weather. I don’t believe that for a moment! There is always a deeper reason for everything that happens to us, or more precisely, experiences we create.
If you have hurt, broken or damaged your ankle, the first and most important emotional issue to look at is support! Your ankles reflect the support we all depend on from people around us and more importantly our inner support system. This inner support system consists of the psychological and emotional beliefs that give our lives meaning and purpose. It includes the emotional support of our loved ones or spiritual or religious convictions. If any of that is taken away, doubted or questioned there is nothing left to hold us upright. This can happen when we are shocked, traumatised, betrayed or rejected and feel unable to stand alone.
Our ankles are essential in keeping us upright, therefore they may collapse when we can no longer stand it or when the weight is just too much to bear.
A Sprained or Twisted Ankle
Our ankles also allow us to be flexible. A sprained or twisted ankle, implies a lack of flexibility in the direction we are going. The strain is too much and causes the energy to buckle or twist, i.e. to go in all directions at once.
A Swollen Ankle
A swollen ankle indicates that you are holding emotional energy, frustration or resistance to letting go.
A Broken Ankle
A broken ankle indicates a very deep emotional conflict about the ground you are standing on. Perhaps you are resisting making a change in the direction of your life, questioning your beliefs or are afraid or unable to stand up for yourself. Ask yourself what does your broken ankle prevent you from doing and what does your broken ankle allow you do to?
While it may seem that the problem lies in our body, the truth is that underlying painful emotions are the true cause of our pain and dis-ease. We are all different but because of the correlation between emotional issues and specific organs it is possible to target these emotions very specifically. For example, most of us will carry financial worries and family issues in our lower backs. Fears about the direction our lives are going in in our hips, inflexible attitudes in our knees and guilt or self-recrimination in our necks. While we may try to swallow down painful emotions and harbour worry in our stomachs, our skin is busy trying to ensure we have healthy emotional boundaries!
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.

Others Describe Their Experiences Using This Meditation
“…. no more pain! My mid back has been bothering me for three days. I put on the mid back meditation and when it was over…. no more pain! Seriously! Thank you so much!” Ms C.C.
“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,
“My back pain is gone. After suffering from upper back pain for the last 4 weeks I purchased the Full Back set of recordings. After listening to the Upper Back recording my back pain is gone, would recommend this set to anyone suffering from back problems. Thanks to Barbara and all her hard work in putting these recordings together, I would say well worth the effort“. Kathy Russell.
“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.
