Our Soul can speak to us through symptoms. Our symptoms are trying to wake us up and send us a message. Once we figure out the message, our symptoms can resolve.
In our busy, stress-filled world, we desire for our symptoms to just go away. We use modern pharmaceuticals – like Ibuprofen, for example — to make this wish come true (albeit temporarily). Ultimately, this keeps us from hearing the message our Soul is trying to communicate and only leads to more chronic issues.
The next time you experience a physical symptom, consider taking a new approach. Take a deep breath and send yourself love and forgiveness. Listen to your life and the wisdom of your body.
Allow your body to speak to you before you reach for a medicine that will block the unpleasant feeling. Allow yourself to feel your emotions. Figure out the message your Soul is sending you through: energy healing, prayer, meditation, learning to love, forgiving yourself and others, seeking truth, and quieting the mind and the opinions of others.
Honor the messages that your body is sending and you can live a more joyful life.
