EXPLORING the Meaning of Your Illness

Cancer can be used as an example of a symbolic disease where blocked emotions may play a causative role along with other factors such as genetics and environmental toxins as described in the November Let Magic Happen newsletter, Symptoms as Metaphors. Similar mind-body-spirit connections can also be found with other more minor symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, hemorrhoids, and postnasal drip. Examples from my own life are explored in this 8 minute video and listed below with symbolic causes from Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body book:

Heal Your Body: The Mental Causes for Physical Diseases and the Metaphysical Way to Overcome Them
by Louise Hay

Symptom: Symbolic cause
Lower leg pain: Not wanting to move
Hemorrhoids: Fear of deadlines
Post nasal drip: Inner crying
Face skin lesion: What we show the world
Shoulder pain: Carrying the burdens of life

Larry, what a great addition to the blog/newsletter.  The personal examples are very helpful.  Also your responses to these.  I continue to explore her work.

Yes Jean,
I am getting more and more interested in this approach to illness from mundane symptoms to cancer. I hope you had a chance to read the article on Symbolic Diseases that was linked to the newsletter.
Let magic happen,
