Listening to our symptoms

We may not always be consciously aware of why our body experiences pain. Pain is usually a signal that all is not well emotionally, like headaches, or a sore throat that come from nowhere. I believe it’s the body’s way of trying to attract our attention.

It’s important to focus and be aware. Awareness of the connections between the mind and the body will always start in the subconscious, will then move on to the conscious, then will connect our feelings and emotions to what our body is telling us.

Being more aware of the connections, allows awareness of what we deal with in our lives to grow and develop more. Changes to the way we deal with things are more likely to be made, when we understand why we have physical pain.

We should learn to listen as our body tries to send us messages that convey symptoms of pain and discomfort. Issues to do with our health arise because we need to pay attention to something that’s happening in our lives that we chose to ignore or we simply don’t know what that is.

I know that some of my physical symptoms get worse when I am dealing with stress, or I’m dealing with something that I haven’t got around to resolving. Usually when the problem goes, the symptoms we’re dealing with, usually go altogether.

  1. I do believe what you say here. When I get upset my body sends all kinds of signals. I do believe one of them is IBS. When I get very anxious it will happen without little warning.

    My stomach will go in knots and heaven forbid I drink coffee when this happens. Only makes my symptoms worse. Calming myself down does work. Breathing deeply helps.

    1. Randy, yes that is exactly what happens to me if I ever get stressed or eat wrongly. It took me a long time to work it all out, but now I now understand the connections I avoid the problems before they happen.

  2. Yes, this is so true. With the fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and very so with my diabetes, if I get upset and stressed out over something I feel worse and my blood sugar goes up terribly. I feel more pain and my fatigue is really bad. Once the stressors are resolved I feel better. Everything goes back to normal, (if you can call it normal, it’s what I’m used to).
