The spiritual meaning of pain in body parts

the spiritual meaning of pain in body parts

In western societies, we go to the doctor or pharmacy for pain or discomfort. However, according to metaphysics, there is a spiritual meaning of pain in body parts. Below is a comprehensive list of ailments from A-Z, and the corresponding reason for that ailment, according to metaphysics. 

The information below is based on Louise Hay’s book – You Can Heal Your Life. Louise says that if we run to the doctor or pharmacy every time there is discomfort in our bodies, we are treating the symptom of the problem, not the underlying reason for the problem.

While I personally love and respect Louise Hay, and I refer to her book regularly, please keep in mind that the information below is not meant as medical advice. Rather, it is general metaphysical observations, serving to illuminate some areas in your life.

A Note From The Author: How I use this information

I am a child of the west, so when anyone in the family gets sick, I refer to the doctor’s advice. However, I do refer to “You can heal your life” and the information below when there are recurring incidences. For example, there was a time in my life when I struggled with severe adult acne. I did everything you’d expect – I changed my diet, I saw a dermatologist, I changed my skincare, etc. Nothing worked. I referred to the book (and the information below), and learned that a reason for acne could be “not accepting myself.” I immediately dismissed the “diagnosis,” but as time passed, I realized – it was true! With a lot of self-love, I’ve learned to love and accept myself completely, and I have been acne free for years.

But it wasn’t just the acne diagnoses I dismissed. Initially, I dismissed them all, but I was proven wrong every time. I don’t dismiss anything out of hand anymore, even if it sounds wrong. Instead, I go to work on the diagnosis because (to me), there really seems to be a spiritual meaning of pain in body parts.

I encourage you to get the book or refer to the information below when there are ailments that seem to keep coming back, despite medical help.
