Like the entire body intelligence, the spine is brilliantly engineered. The perfect balance between mobility and protection; flexibility and durability. With the elegance of form that rivals anything we've seen. .
Sometimes, an unnatural twist occurs in the spine. A minor twist, or one so extreme that a diagnosis is required. Scoliosis, for instance. This twist can occur as organs and viscera tighten due to congestion and/or deterioration from a corrosive diet, acidic thought patterns, or it can occur as embodiment of a phor. .
I worked with a client once who viewed her sexual fantasies as ‘twisted’, and this manifested as a physical twist. The body is, after all, an embodiment of our beliefs. As I straightened her torso physically, tears flowed. She just couldn't believe that the way I had positioned her was straight. She'd felt 'twisted' for so long. I showed her the mirror, and more tears flowed, wetting her cheeks and shoulders. .
John Sarno, a pioneering back surgeon, found that most back pain is emotional at its core. Even pains due to traumatic ‘injuries’. This is due to our inaccurate education about the resilient spine. We tend to learn of it as a fragile column of bone. We learn most anatomy wrongly, if at all. Even the most up to date scientific awareness of the body and its systems is inaccurate, because it is pursuing the inquiry from the wrong angle; from the idea of the body and its systems as a machine that can be fully grasped by another consciousness. .
We have to continually remind ourselves that we are embodiments of some ineffable divine mechanics, the workings of which we only fathom in the smallest slivers. The gaps in our knowledge are usually filled by illusions or wishful thinking.
If you have a physical condition, I can assure you that it is mostly, if not entirely, emotional at its core. If you're merely working at the level of the physical body, you're unlikely to find the healing you're seeking.
Love and flow, .
