My first yoga instructor told me that our body is a locked in history of our emotional state. Biosignature modulation, pioneered by Charles Poliquin states that hormonal imbalances make you store fat in certain specific places (ie. Stress makes you fat around your stomach) and Traditional Chinese medicine states that the internal organs can house negative emotions (kidneys - fear, lungs - grief, liver - anger, spleen - worry, heart - sadness).
So what is YOUR body telling you right now about your emotional state? Shoulder pain? Maybe you are carrying the weight of the world?
Back pain? Do you feel there is a lack of support in your life?
Knee pain? Have you taken on too much in your life?
Hip pain? Are you afraid to move forward in life?
Your body speaks in metaphors all the time. Its your choice if you choose to listen to those messages!
