The Gift of Symptoms and Emotions
If symptoms are the language of choice from our subconscious—that vast storehouse of 98% of our experiential data—and e-motions, (or “e”nergy in “motion”), are the triggers that want to call them forth, what happens when our e-motions end up being internalized, denied, or disconnected? What happens to our bodies? And what do our bodies do with the energy produced by our e-motions? When the “motion” is stifled and stopped we are left with trapped energy. It has to go somewhere. It doesn’t sit idly by waiting for permission to move about. It is banging up against our walls and locked doors, driving autonomic responses with under-the-radar messages to our physical bodies. Energy is neither created nor destroyed. It is meant to be in motion, to affect and experience continual change. That is the energy of Life.
It would seem that often our e-motions are considered overwhelming and the symptoms they produce to be bothersome. To bear that theory out one need only witness the massive array of pharmaceuticals produced to subdue and quiet our simmering symptoms in the hopes that they will just go away. The thing about the subconscious is that it is automatic. In other words, we cannot rationalize it or control it. Its intention is for the sole means of survival. The more e-motion we disconnect from—and the longer we remain disconnected from it—the more imbalance it creates and the greater its affects on our bodies.
When we experience a symptom, such as headache, nausea, or back pain, it is our body trying to create a dialogue with us. The message is that there is an imbalance, or blockage, of that energy going on inside of us. There is dis-ease. This is different from a break-down resulting in a pathology. Pathology is by definition a diagnosable dis-ease. What is crucial to know is that a diagnosable pathology requires a 40%-plus breakdown of our body functioning. So then one must ask, what is happening all during the preceding 40% path?
An imbalance, or blockage, of energy is what will trigger symptoms to appear. Along a continuum from optimal health to death, an imbalance may not produce a dialogue of symptoms until 17% to 20% of the way away from optimal health. Then when symptoms begin to appear, there is a minimal requirement of at least 10% more breakdown of our bodies to be diagnosable in the typical model. At the onset of symptoms the normal protocol is to self medicate with over-the-counter remedies, essentially telling the body to “shut up,” and we “don’t want to hear it,” instead of looking for the cause.
So what does any of this matter to an energy Kinesiologist? Return with me, if you will, to the continuum from optimal health to death. Because of the intelligence and pure genius of our bodies, and by being able to access the subconscious by monitoring a muscle, which is tied into and run by the subconscious, we can ascertain an energy imbalance within the first 1% to 2% of that health continuum! The dysfunction can be found even before the body tries to get our attention and dialogue with us through the appearance of symptoms. And certainly, if we find ourselves anywhere further along the continuum, from no symptoms, to symptoms, to pathology, we can honor that dialogue—which is truly a gift—and access the imbalance in the subconscious so as to remove it and restore the energy to its natural flow, allowing our bodies freedom from the endless cycle of survival living. The body’s innate wisdom will then be able to regain health and wellness more readily.
Should we do away with pharmaceuticals? Certainly not! And we can also avail ourselves of the opportunity to avoid the need for them if possible. All these things can work together for our good. So I strongly issue the invitation to call 801.599.2253 and see what your body would like to dialogue about, and what it might request for health and wellness.
