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?
Affirmations To Ease The Emotional Aspects of Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia, M.E., Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, seem to be symptomatic of the modern age. They are dis♥eases which have developed in response to the ever increasing pressure to succeed, to fit in, to be “good enough”. Fear of failure and/or lack of self-love contribute to the emotional exhaustion and physical pain. Unconscious emotional pain is expressed through our bodies as dis♥ease.
Some of the emotions often implicated in this type of dis♥ease are:- Feeling totally alone. Feelings of desolation, despair, hopelessness. Tired of trying to prove yourself. Low self worth. Lost the will to live. Pressure to succeed. Lost dreams/aspirations. Feeling not good enough. Keep pushing oneself or giving up. Finding it difficult to ask for help. Hard to cope alone, resistance to looking after oneself. Unfair, effort, fear of failure, lack of self love. Immersed in own problems. “poor me” syndrome. Fear of being lost , unnoticed, unrecognised. Being influenced by others too much. Not following your hearts desires, feeling trapped & empty. Alienation from ourselves. Disconnection from who we truly are. Disconnection from inner spirit or true self. Lack of motivation & direction. Exhaustion takes over. Feel like giving up. Feel like hiding. Sheltering from the storm of life. Excuse not to participate. Inner exhaustion. Fear of responsibility. Fear of failure. Inability to protect ourselves, cry for attention. Not feeling safe. Vulnerable and unsupported. Trauma, shock, grief, guilt, shame, blame. Struggle to find relief. Loneliness & isolation.
