Messages from the Body

“What drains your spirit drains your body. What fuels your spirit fuels your body.”

“How can you live without knowing what your spirit is doing and what your spirit is saying to you?”

“Your biography—that is, the experiences that make up your life—becomes your biology.”

“I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things–the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos–are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul.”
~Caroline Myss

Our bodies are constantly speaking to us, trying to tell us what we are struggling with internally. Inside, we can have this battle going on between our egos and our true essence or spiritual self.

Messages from the Body

When our spiritual self is guiding us, we find peace; when our egos are guiding us, all we find is chaos and our bodies are the messenger.

Caroline Myss, a well-regarded medical intuitive, gives a wonderful summary of our body’s energy systems, in her book “Anatomy of the Spirit.” These systems, or Chakras, link certain emotional struggles with physical dysfunctions or—more simply—messages from our bodies.

The link between our emotional issues and dis-ease is no longer a question in science or medicine. We can’t continue to ignore the emotional side of our beings when faced with a physical dysfunction if we want to truly heal.

According to the Science of Medical Intuition, “Caroline Myss is called America’s #1 medical intuitive because of her documented 93 percent accuracy rate in a scientific blind study conducted by Dr. Norm Shealy, a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon, graduate of Duke Medical School, and founder of the prestigious American Holistic Medical Association two decades ago.”

Let’s look at some of Caroline’s summary. The following examples are excerpts from her chart and not complete. (To find the complete chart, refer to her book “Anatomy of the Spirit”.

The emotional issues if felt at negative extremes could lead to any of the listed dysfunctions; this is not a one-to-one correspondence.

Emotional Issues Physical Dysfunctions
Physical family and group safety and security Chronic lower back pain
Ability to stand up for self Depression
Social and familial law and order Immune-related disorders
Blame and guilt Sciatica
Power and control Ob/gyn problems
Creativity Sexual potency
Trust Arthritis
Self-esteem, self-confidence, self-respect Colon/intestinal problems
Fear and intimidation Indigestion, chronic or acute
Personal honor Liver dysfunction
Love and hatred Congestive heart failure
Grief and anger Lung cancer
Forgiveness and compassion Breast cancer
Self-centeredness Upper back/shoulder
Personal expression Raspy throat
Addiction Chronic sore throat
Judgment and criticism Thyroid problems
Truth Brain tumor/hemorrhage/stroke
Feelings of adequacy Neurological disturbances
Ability to learn from experience Learning disabilities
Emotional intelligence Seizures
Values, ethics, and courage Energetic disorders
Ability to see the larger pattern Chronic exhaustion that is not linked to a physical disorder
Faith and inspiration Extreme sensitivities to light, sound, and other environmental factors


I often refer to the complete chart when dealing with my own physical issues and I have yet to not find a link. Dealing with our physical dysfunctions on a purely physical level through treatments, supplements or medication is our natural go to, however we are holistic beings and forgetting about the underlying emotional issues could make all the difference in our ability to heal or not.

Do yourself a favor and listen to the messages your body is giving you about what is going on in your emotional being.
