The worst charley horse of my life happened spontaneously one day in 1987 with a severe calf cramp coming out of the blue and causing me to collapse to the floor in agony. I crawled over to the bookshelf to find a little blue book I had just purchased a few weeks before. It was Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body: The Mental Causes for Physical Illness and the Metaphysical Way to Overcome Them. Although there seems to be little scientific basis for these associations, there is more often than not a nugget of truth in them which can be useful to guide the mysterious process of self-healing. Deeper psychospiritual meanings can be hidden in such somatic metaphors as described in my new Transforming Symptoms as Metaphors blog.
