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 a headache, or a sore throat that come from nowhere. It’s our body’s way of trying to attract our attention.

It’s important for us to focus and become aware of the connections between the mind and the body. Being more aware of the connections allows awareness of what we deal with, for us to grow and develop more. Changes to the way we deal with things are more likely to be implemented by us, when we understand how the connections work.

Issues to do with our health arise, simply because we’re not paying to something that needs our attention, to something that’s happening in our lives that we’re choosing to ignore, or we simply don’t know what that is.

Some of our physical symptoms may get worse when we’re dealing with stress, or dealing with something that we haven’t got around to resolving. Usually when the problem goes away, the symptoms we’re dealing with, usually go away.

  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).
