The back provides the greatest support for the physical body, therefore, any problem indicates that you don’t feel enough support.
Too often we think we are only supported by our job or by our family or spouses. In reality we are totally supported by the Universe, life itself.
The power that creates us has given us enough breath to last as long as we shall live, can we not trust that everything else we need will be also supplied?
LOWER BACK PAIN (SACRAL REGION):
Indicates fear of losing your freedom when others needs your help or fear for your own survival.
LOWER BACK PAIN (LUMBAR REGION):
Lower back is connected with the HAVING of your life (home, money, spouse, children, a good job, a diploma, etc.)
You believe you must have it all in order to feel supported, but you don’t want to admit this to yourself or other. You want to do everything for yourself. You also tend to be very active because you think that it is the best way to have things.
Middle back pain has to do with guilt. All that stuff that is in the back of us. Are you afraid to see what is back there? Are you hiding what is back there? Do you feel stabbed in the back?
UPPER BACK PAIN OR NECK AREA:
Represents emotional insecurity. Doing is very important to you. It’s your way of showing and giving love to others. If someone does something for you, you feel loved and secure. However your back pain might provide the perfect excuse not to do everything for others as you may fear that doing too much, other won’t help you anymore.
You expect a lot from others and when your expectations are not met you may feel you have a lot on your back. You have difficulty asking for help or support from others.
When you do finally decide to do so and don’t receive the help, you feel stuck and your back worsens.
Upper back pain could also mean that your feel somebody is watching you, that they are on your back all the time…
TiPS TO BRING RELIEF TO YOUR BACK PROBLEMS:
Relax often and go inside to bring awareness and find out what your body is telling you through this pain. When we listen and understand the emotional cause of the pain it will be more easy take the necessary steps to release the pain and recover your personal power.
Acknowledge your limitations and express them to others.
If you feel your survival is at stake, realize that is your emotional dependence that generates this fear and keeps you from believing that you can’t survive alone. You have all the tools to take care of yourself.
Start voicing your needs and believe that you have the right to do so.
Stop believing that you need to expend all your energy to ensure other’s happiness.
Realize also that others don’t have to do everything in order for you to be happy!
