Headache & Migraine

Headache & Migraine are your body’s way of telling you you are going too fast, doing too much and overloading your circuits. You need to take some time out, relax and ease the pressure! Details of our Affirmations For Headache & Migraine Relief meditation.


Our heart and blood stream correspond to our relationship with love. As blood gives us life, so love gives our lives meaning and direction. The more we open our hearts to love, for ourselves and others, the more expansive our lives become. If we close down to love, our hearts can harden and blood circulation constrict. As with all of these things, this works on a physical as well as an
emotional level. An open, loving heart is vital to our physical and emotional well-being. Details of our Affirmations To Heal Your Heart meditation.


Lack of self-care, putting others needs before your our own and repressing our feelings, taking on other people's problems as if they were our own all contribute to an overall lack of self-care and self - esteem. Sadness, regret, holding on to past hurts, not knowing how to say no, feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities of motherhood can all lead to feelings of disempowerment, victimhood and feeling as though we have no control of our own lives. Feeling unfulfilled by life and finding it difficult if not impossible to ask for help all can all contribute to breast conditions. Self-love really is the key to breast health. Details of our Affirmations For Breast Health meditation.

Upper Back Pain

The upper back represents the reverse side of the heart; this is where we find fear, irritation, anger,
resentment and frustration. Many physical issues can arise based upon the emotional health of your spine. Since the spine literally supports your whole body, pain and imbalance in the spinal column often reflects feelings of non support and lack of love. Details of our Affirmations For Upper Back Pain Meditation.

Skin Conditions

The skin represents our physical and emotional boundaries! If our emotional and energetic boundaries are not healthy it will be reflected in the condition of our skin. If you are irritated or if someone is “getting under your skin” should you be surprised that your skin becomes itchy or inflamed, angry and red? If we feel we are under attack, (even if we strive to show a polished veneer to the outer world) sooner or later our skin will come to our defence in the only way it knows how, by manifesting physical evidence. Details of our Affirmations To Soothe Your Skin meditation.

Stomach Problems

Our stomachs are often where we store feelings of fear and anxiety. Digestion symbolises the ability to absorb what we need and let go of what we don’t need. Do you know what is good for you? Do you have a tendency to be influenced by things that are not good for you? When we harbour worry our digestive enzymes churn away until we can no longer stomach what is happening. Our relationship with food is intimately connected with how emotionally loved or
nourished we feel and our stomachs deal with all these conflicting emotions for us. What emotions are you harbouring in your stomach? What painful emotions are you trying to swallow down? Details of our Affirmations To Soothe Your Stomach meditation.

Mid Back Pain

The middle area of your back holds the balance in the centre of the body; therefore it is connected
to decision-making. Resentment can also be found in the middle back. Pain in the mid-back is
associated to deficiency in the stomach liver, gallbladder, adrenal glands, and reproductive organs.
The saying “I bent over backwards to help” relates to the middle back. Details of our Affirmations For Mid-Back Pain meditation.

Lower Back Pain

The lower back is often where we store feelings of being unsupported, the weight of responsibility.
Issues with the lower back are connected to the large intestine, immune system, bladder, and
kidneys. Childhood trauma that has not been dealt with often manifests in lower back problems.
Issues of security, isolation, survival and self-support are often stored in the lower back. Details of our Affirmations For Lower Back Pain meditation.

Hip Pain & Stiffness

Fear of moving forward, feeling useless or fearing for our survival causes us to hold on tightly to what we have often to the point that we become immobile. Are you carrying too much weight for others, holding it as a mother carries a child on her hip? You may even be carrying your own mother in your hips. Is it hard for you to put her down and stand on your own? Hip pain often tells us that we're holding on to a lot of deep fear, root chakra, primal fear. Details of our Affirmations For Hip Pain & Stiffness meditation.

Ankle Pain & Injury

These thin little parts of our body support our entire weight. If an ankle slips, our whole body falls to the ground. Support is the key here as the ankles reflect the support we depend on not just from others but from our inner support system. This inner system consists of psychological and
emotional beliefs that give our lives meaning and purpose. If any of this is taken away, doubted or questioned there is nothing to hold us upright. This can happen when we experience shock or
trauma or when we feel rejected, betrayed and unable to stand alone. Details of our Affirmations For Ankle Pain & Injury meditation.

Neck Pain & Stiffness

The neck acts as a bridge between our heads and bodies, between the intellectual mind and the loving heart. Many of us have more energy in our heads, we can spend hours talking or thinking and this often comes at the expense of feeling or hearing our hearts and bodies. This can create tension or rigidity in our necks. If the head and the heart can communicate with each other and respect each other they may not feel so throttled or denied. Details of our Affirmations For Neck Pain  meditation.

Knee Pain & Injury

We need our knees to be flexible so we can move with grace and ease, to dance, run and climb
stairs! Pride and inflexibility put a strain on our knees. If our knees give way too quickly, knocking or trembling with fear or an inability to stand up for ourselves, we need to work on our self-esteem and insecurity issues come to believe in ourselves and claim our place in the world. Details of our Affirmations For Knee Pain & Injury meditation.
