It's becoming increasingly accepted
in what is called "mainstream allopathic medicine"
that there is a correlation between the soul and the body. I
am coming from that perspective here. For me, a physical ailment
is a sign from Spirit telling me that something is up. It has
become necessary for me to become aware of it more acutely,
thus a material manifestation of the issue appears.
There are several ways in which
one can "read" the ailment.
One of them is through physical
action. What action is restricted by the ailment? Testing the
actions that are possible with that part of your body can give
you an idea. When does it hurt most? What associations do you
have with that action? Are you acting appropriately or accordingly,
or is something blocking that action?
Another way of determining what the
ailment might indicate, is to find sayings and expressions that
are associated with that part of your body. Picking up a dictionary
to find sayings about that body part might be very useful. Shrugging
something off, elbowing your way through something, something
making you want to puke, kick someone's butt. They can be more
colloquial expressions, and more traditional.
A third way to figure out what the
message might be, is to literally see what that part of your
body does, and how that could translate to your spiritual well-being.
Stomach is about digestion, bowels are about elimination, lungs
are about breathing and air, teeth are about grinding and biting
Then there is the symbolism that
is culturally attached to body parts. The heart is about love.
The head is rational. Eyes are windows to the soul. Index fingers
are pointers. Feet are symbols of footing.
A more abstract approach could be
to see in which general area of the chakra system the ailment
is. Is this the first ailment you have had in that general area,
or are there recurring problems near that chakra? What energy
center is it? What insight can you get from that association?
Last but not least: sometimes we
don't need an ailment to draw our attention to something. Sometimes
it is a series of bumps, stumblings, bruises or cuts. Needing
elbow space or being alerted to a situation of elbow rubbing.
Needing grounding when constantly stubbing a toe. Needing clarity
or focus when bumping a head. Needing to handle something. Making
a knee fall. Pointing something out
the list goes on.
I've focused mainly on the external
body, yet the same goes for organs and internal body processes.
When working with this style of gaining insight, it is not meant
to replace the care of a physician. In fact, a physician can
often help in homing in on the particular ailment. The body
could very well still need medical treatment, but the process
of healing could be assisted by gaining insight into the spiritual
lesson behind the ailment.
