Because the neck is the link between the head and the body in a physical sense, metaphysically it joins the spiritual and the material world.
The neck represents the ability to be flexible in our thinking, to see the other side of a question, and to see another person’s point of view.
You may be in a situation that you feel you can’t control as you wish. You may feel that someone or something around you has become a “pain in the neck”.
Perhaps you are uncomfortable with what you feel is going on behind your back…
Whatever the issue, you pretend it does not bother you, but in fact you feel as if stuck in an emotional roller coaster.
When we suffer with probably we have leaned toward a certain decision that you must straighten out by altering your belief system.
Tips for bringing relief and understanding to your neck pain:
Remember that your reality is based on your perception and is therefore completely within your control.
Check with yourself what thoughts and beliefs are holding you back or stuck in the situation and then search within yourself or carry out practical researches to see if you can find other points of view or perspective to arrive to different answers and solutions. Opening your mind and your heart, to different solutions can bring you the release on the pain.
Flexibility in your mind and heart can help you to release body stiffness and pain.
If your fear is related to what is going on behind your back, become aware that this is the result of your mind working overtime. Check with the people concerned and express your beliefs and fears.
As a simply rule you can check when you feel more pain on your neck moving your head (saying yes, so back and forward – saying no, so moving side to side) asking yourself what it is you need to make a decision about at this time:
If you feel more pain in the yes movements, your body is telling you that a decision you are postponing should be yes and that your inflexibility are the obstacles your face in making the appropriate decision.
If you feel more pain in the no movements, ask yourself what it is you are afraid of and evaluate this fear. Check with the person to see if you fear are justified.
