Lower back pain often coincides with anniversaries, birthdays, retirement or even children leaving home.
If you suffer from lower back pain, think back to when it began. What was going on in your life at the time? 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.
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. The lower back is often where we store feelings of being unsupported, of the weight of responsibility. Issues of security, isolation, survival and self-support are often stored in the lower back.
Our lower backs are where we hold financial fears, unresolved childhood anger, feelings of victim-hood, limitation, negativity and fears about our future. If we don’t release these emotional issues, sometimes even surgery can’t help. Dr. John Sarno MD, a traditionally trained professor of New York University School of Medicine, came to the same conclusion. After many years of treating patients with back pain using standard remedies, he continued to get poor results until he realised that 88% of his patients also had stress-related problems.
When you look at the emotional issues connected with the lower back, the fact that events such as anniversaries, birthdays, retirement or children leaving home can trigger it makes perfect sense.
Our What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations help you heal and clear out the old painful emotions which are being triggered, gently quieten your inner-critic. Relax and reduce, ease or even clear physical pain. The attitude of loving kindness and gratitude you are guided to feel towards your body can only enhance any other healing methods you are using.
