Physical ailments – do they have a different meaning? Louise Hay’s work

I am really sorry but I am unable right now to respond to emails. So am taking some time out (especially for email questions) for this week, please can you put questions on the site, as I am concerned that I wouldn’t respond?

Sometimes physical illnesses can manifest, and they have their roots in an emotional context. Freud did a lot of work on this topic. I was reminded to look this up, as recently have had a bad back. What I read, was quite interesting and probably relevant too.

How about you, have you had physical pains/illnesses/symptoms, if you look up Louise Hay work here, can you relate to what has been happening in your emotional life?

  1. Hugs and prayers for you…..I can’t imagine your pain…give yourself some time and space.
    I have had Louise’s “Little Blue Book” for 20 + years….I find it uncanny how accurate it is. Take care of you β™₯

    1. I did get the Louise Haye you can heal your life book years ago, I gave it away before reading it. I should get another copy.

      When my back gets better, perhaps time to hit charity shops :)…. someone once told me, that your angels will guide you to the books that you are meant to read. At the time I was working in another city, and there was a row of charity shops on this street in a posh area. I can guarantee that every time I needed to know something or wanted a book, I would go into one of those shops and there on the shelf was the book that I needed.

      I think over those years, I must have obtained Gray Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus around 4 times as I kept losing my copy. Perhaps this is a reminder to me to get her book and have a read πŸ™‚

      Thank you for your kind thoughts. It is year 4 which is better than the previous 3 years, and for this I am grateful πŸ™‚

      1. I would recommend the book Pain Free by Pete Egoscue. It has definitely helped me. Recently I recommended it to a business associate that had wrestled with bad back pain for two years and had tried almost everything but surgery. After 4 weeks of the doing some of the stretches he got back to normal with only an occasional day of minor pain. here is an amazon link.

        Hope it might help you like you have helped us.

  2. Hi Pos,

    My heart goes out to you. I know that this is a really rough and horrible time for you.You are a very special lady, don’t forget that. Please remember how far you have come, how much you have learnt. How much you have given and how much you have gained. Your loss will always be there. Nothing will change that.
    You have helped so many people and the love that you have inside you has spread to the world at large. Keep being you. Be kind to yourself. Grieve the loss of your beautiful daughter and what could have been. Also remember the hope of the future that will be and how much change you have brought to so many peoples lives and your own, in part, because of your loss. The love that you have created around you, especially on this site, will spread and continue to grow. You were the one that brought it together. I hope that knowledge will give you strength and a speedy recovery.

    Big hugs

    1. What beautiful words. Thank you!!! πŸ™‚

      You are right, this site is such a beautiful place. I am always blown away by the kindness, and positivity that radiates from here. It always touches my heart. It is made beautiful, by the beautiful people who post here.

      I just wanted to write an explaination to why I haven’t been around. Am in so much pain – if not in pain then drugged and sleeping… its difficult to concentrate to write.

      I will be back soon πŸ™‚

  3. I agree 100%.

    I have Crohn’s Disease. I was diagnosed 12 years ago. I was quite healthy and only had a few bad weeks every now and again. When I was with my Spath, I had 3 years of constant flair ups. He always used to get angry at me and used to blame other things for me being sick. It was always him. I used to run to the toilet whenever we had an argument or he was angry at me or he was in his silent treatment mood. I also found myself vomiting when I was just brushing my teeth. To make things harder, he never took time out to read about the disease or try to understand it. At first he told me to look after myself and drink plenty of water. Then he started to blame everything else but him. It was my gut reacting to the way I was being treated. Always trust your gut instincts, mine was yelling at me, that’s for sure.

    I also developed anxiety and depression while I was with him. I also had constant pains in my body.

    The worse thing was the Crohn’s Disease. I am not 100% better now but I am getting there.

    1. I feel for you, my daughter has chrones disease. She is so brave, but I know that it really puts your body through it.

      I do know from watching my daughter that if you over do it, it can make it worse. I also wonder if stress makes it worse too. It is a horrible illness, and to be abused whilst you are suffering must have been truly awful 😦

  4. Positivagirl,

    You are deep in my heart. All of my thoughts and prayers are with you, especially for tomorrow. I know for a fact that you feel our love here. We will always be here for you. Xo

    Great list of ailments with answers. Seems pretty accurate.

    1. It goes on for a week, as I was at the end of pregnancy, tomorrow is the day that my world was blown apart and they said that she had died (well it starts 13th when I was in the hospital and they sent me home)…. On 16th I think of her death – on 19th I think of her birthday – so difficult to explain.

      Thank you for your kind words πŸ™‚ I just wanted to explain why I am not posting right now. Apart from that have been bed bound for the last week – I can barely walk.

      1. I just wanted to say I am so very sorry for your loss of your daughter. I can’t imagine your pain. I also am sorry you’re having severe back pain…I took a look at the list of Louise Hays’ and felt there is something to it. I never thought about it until this post, but I started having severe pain in both arms and elbows–debilitating at times–about the time I found out the truth about my sp. I never put the two things together until now. As always, your site and your posts have illuminated things for me…I too have an anniversary date approaching…the due date I would have had my baby is February 7th…I didn’t experience the kind of loss you did, but I do understand the anniversary dates are very hard. I am sorry again about your loss. Peace and comfort to you…

      2. Thank you B, yes anniversary dates always hit. I hope that the day is gentle on you. Some people do things like set off fire lanterns or helium balloons into the sky…. it can help and feel like a release up into heaven πŸ™‚

        I really like the Louise Hays list I think I am going to print it off and read it properly. Am on stronger pain killers now so I am hoping that soon it will go, and I can walk properly. Its been 8 days now and am getting fed up of being bed bound….. grrr….

  5. Send me your address…I will send you a copy of You Can Heal Your Life….

    I must admit the physical illness manifests when the path is in your life. The first time I was “discarded” I became very ill and started having problems seeing. My heart was racing and I started losing weight fast. 50 pounds in three months. Was hyped out like I was doing meth. The path told me “I don’t want to listen to your problems” A week earlier was so in love with me and wanted to marry me. So confusing. Found out later I had Graves Disease ( a hyperthyroid autoimmune disorder). Funny, it’s under control now and have had no problems since he’s been gone. He’s stalking me now hoping to have me fall at his feet. No, thank you. like feeling OK. What a good friend to abandoned me when I am sick. And, oh, yes, you have the gene for this disease, but it only is triggered by extreme stress. Thank you, asshole.

  6. Hi Pos,

    So saddened at this time for your health issues & the anniversary of the passing of your beloved daughter 😦

    I have suffered a lot of ailments over the years & I was guided to Louise Hay 20 years ago. I was doing a reiki workshop & asked my spirit/angels to guide me to a book for help. I walked in & just stood in the store, then walked to self help & was drawn mainly by the rainbow colours πŸ™‚
    My love affair with Louise’s teachings began there πŸ™‚
    Unfortunately, I went on & off the path of her teachings but,am now firmly on it & will never come off again.
    I had major health issues with my back & hip a few years ago & was told I needed a hip replacement at age 45 eek!!! I couldn’t walk as the pain is excrutiating. My son, had to help me go to the toilet!!! He was so caring & compassionate so, much to both our horror, we managed. I very indepandant so, drove myself to osteopath & physio etc…& slowly got upright πŸ˜‰
    My Soc had ankle problems so, that says alot oh & blocked tear ducts,not sure what that means though?

    You have to heal the condition first as it’s already become apparent & then start with the therapy & then the deep soul work of affirmations & change etc… Then you will be stronger & able to support yourself.
    You suffered a catastrophic trauma & then others so, be proud of yourself as you are tremedously resilient & we are all sending you our love & support πŸ™‚
    Just trust in yourself & keep your chin up. You are not alone & awareness is the key to finding your joy. You bring so much help to many & hopefully you can shine all that loving energy on YOU πŸ™‚

    Love & light & butterfies & feathers & remeber desiderata.
    Remember to breath in life & stop holding your breath, the universe supports you & so do we.

    PR xoxo

    1. P.S. Have managed to get fitter so, still haven’t needed that hip replacement (yay) self support does work & since the Soc has gone, I have been doing great πŸ˜‰

  7. I looked for some websites that showed the egoscue stretches for the back from Pain Free so you can try before you get the book. My friend and I used the Static Back, Supine Groin Stretch, and the Sitting Floor exercise( this one really worked for the pain in my lower back) to deal with our back issues.
    This link has the first two and this link has the third exercise.
    The basic premise behind the egoscue method is that we get a lot of muscle imbalances caused by our modern motion restricted lifestyles. Some groups get very strong while others weaken. This will pull our bones out of alignment over time and cause chronic pain. We need to get the muscles to relax so that our bones can gradually return to their natural, proper positions. These stretch exercises help to get the muscles relaxed.
    Stressful periods in our life can also lead to holding tension in certain muscle groups which can cause chronic pain flareups through the process described above. I hope this information can assist you and my prayers are with you during this painful time in your life.

    1. Thanks for looking this up for me. I think I might need to have an MRI scan to see what is wrong. When I had my daughter 4 years ago, I had epidural needle in my back for a long time. I am thinking that this might have been what has caused the damage. Right now, I am unable to do exercise as I can’t really even walk…. But I really appreciate you taking the time out to find this for me.Thank you!! πŸ™‚

      1. My pleasure. I know the word exercise doesn’t sound good when you are in pain. Please take a look at them. The two most effective (static back and supine groin) really are no more than lying still on the floor with your legs up on a chair and your arms out for about ten minutes each. The muscles slowly release when lying in that position. But also don’t want this to replace doctor’s advice.

        BTW, sent an email a couple of days ago asking how I can make a donation to the site to help defray some costs. Let me know, when you feel better.

  8. Pos,

    Be gentle, compassionate & super kind to yourself during this time please πŸ˜‰ sometimes it’s important to totally unplug for a week or two–and be in silence, slow/no activity & time to just “be” not ” do”. πŸ˜‰ prayers ascending for relief, peace & restoration.

    Take all the rest & time you need to replenish, retreat, regroup & refresh!!! We all need mini mental health vacations/holidays now & again. Slowing down and being still is resting in God so that he can do the deep surgery/ healing of our mind, body, soul & spirit:) you have been giving so much of yourself here & fighting the battle– you are not alone, allow love of/from– self, others & God πŸ˜‰ ” Be still and know that I am God”

    I hope you don’t post for a few days, so I know you are putting yourself first– and truly resting! You are love, you are loved!

    Peace be with you & your back

    1. Thank you for your kind words EL. I think it helps to keep my mind occupied.

      I was thinking what is a good birthday present for her this year. And I think I am going to start two campaign for changes.

      1. To make it compulsary to offer a check up, to check for signs of trauma/PTSD/PND at 6 weeks and then a second check up at 6 months.

      2. For stillbirth to be discussed in pregnancy, for risks to be discussed with mothers as part of antenatal. For open and honest communication.

      To get this going and to have changes, would mean the world to me. And this would be a perfect birthday present for Maya.

  9. Hey PG

    Hope you are well – how’s your back?

    I’ve been a bit quiet lately – just feeling sorry for myself!

    Back on it now

  10. hello. breaking a bone indicates “rebelling against authority” is this necessarily a bad thing? what would be the meaning of being a victim of a minor car accident? thank you
