Pain is like our “check engine” light going on. It’s our body trying to give us a sign that something is not right. Many times we think we know the cause for our pain (perhaps from a recent injury) and we turn to pain relievers. The pain relievers do in fact lessen the pain, but they also essentially turn off the ‘check engine’ light. No more pain, no more problem. At least that’s what we think.
But what about when we don’t have a good reason for that pain to be present? What about when unexplained pain comes out of nowhere? Ignoring the ‘check engine’ light is not a good idea. Sure, we can take the painkillers, but it’s also important to try to find the reason for the pain. There are many different messages about our emotional health that our pain may be trying to send us.
Emotional Meanings of Pain
One-sided pain issues can reflect the side of you that feels confused or unsupported.
Left side is the Yin side and is the more receptive side. It responds to stimulus from your environment. It holds your experiences (past), your emotional self, your memories, and emotional joy or pain.
Right side is the Yang side and it organizes and moves you forward into the future. It governs how you interact with the world. When you are experiencing problems on your right side you may feel stuck or hampered in moving forward. Or you may be experiencing unwanted change that is causing fear, reluctance, or trepidation
Pain on the Front side reveals your social or public self. It is the way the world sees you. It reflects those aspects of yourself that are active ingredients in your day-to-day living. This includes communication, desire, caring, loving, happiness, sadness. These show in your face, posture and body language.
Backside pain reflects private and unconscious elements of your life and can be the storehouse for everything you don’t want to deal with or don’t want other people to see. Hidden or unexpressed feelings become frozen into the structure of your body. That means a lot of negative emotions become stored along your spine and in the backs of your legs. Most of your powerful emotions such as anger and fear are stored in your back which pulls your body out of balance.
