Finding the book “Heal your Body” by Louise Hay about 20 years ago has been a real blessing.
A few years later I was told about “Your body is the Barometer of your Soul” by Annette Noontil.
Both authors connect our thinking to what is going on in our body.
Since our feelings let us know what we have been thinking,
we can use all those tools to help ourselves to feel better, emotionally and physically.
A couple of weeks ago I had an annoying pain in the back and
I used both books and wrote affirmations in my morning sessions of writing.
My back felt better afterwards but the pain still lingered.
I had the sense of some deeper feeling and I was glad to have a counselling session that week.
In the counselling session I did a painting, where my little girl(inner child) was hiding in a corner from two mean people,
who were saying shameful and mean things to her.
As I focused on how she was feeling, I cried because of the shame she was feeling, shame that wasn’t hers.
Becoming aware that I had carried my parents shame(being born out of wedlock in the 50s), helped me to understand myself and reframe my thinking.
Long story short,I left the session feeling much better and on my way home I noticed that my back felt ‘normal’.
I do believe we store unresolved feelings in our body.
Sometimes we can clear these with the help of what the books of Louise Hay and/or Annette Noontil suggest.
Sometimes we may need the help of someone else.
Do you have any experiences like this? What works for you?
