LARYNGITIS - THE EMOTIONAL LINKS TO PHYSICAL STRESS
At Bend Like Bamboo I specialise in the emotional links to disease and physical stress. In traditional Chinese medicine our muscles are associated with our organs and emotions, which is why a sore neck can linked with emotions of over worry. For example, the stomach organ is in charge of digestion, if there is a physical imbalance here I will also look at how are you currently digesting life?
HOW YOU THINK AND FEEL IS A MIRROR IMAGE OF WHAT OCCURS BIOCHEMICALLY IN YOUR BODY, AND WHAT YOU SEE IN YOUR REALITY AROUND YOU.
If we understand that the body is connected, we can get to the bottom of physical symptoms by understanding how they are related to our emotional state.
As air is breathed out it passes through the vocal cords, allowing us to create a voice of expression or (conclusion of our thoughts). This is only possible on expiration. Our expression is based on our experiences in life.
Expiration : can be represented by a time that has been spent working on an area of your life.
The voice box : can be connected to the ability to bring to peoples attention our conclusions about something in life.
Laryngitis and the loss of voice can occur when a person becomes concerned about the ability to have an opinion. The lack of this liberty cannot come through due to threatening ramifications, perceived by the individual. This can be about the concerns towards the opinion one might have, or concerns about a lack of required facilities that would support ones opinion.
THE LOSS OF VOICE CAN BE CONNECTED TO :
Sense of powerlessness
Hopelessness, feeling stuck
Pushing yourself beyond capacity
Refusing to listen to your inner guidance OR how to communicate this to others
Feeling like you have 'lost your voice', your power, your say
Conflicted about your feelings, confused
