Your Unconscious Mind  -  The Language Of The Body

Our body is the storehouse of our memories and emotions. Our unconscious mind holds the key. It can open the door to present information to our conscious mind for interest, resolution or remembrance. It can close the door and archive the emotions and memories away for future reference.

Unresolved experiences and emotions simmer away. They can be uncomfortable to remember but, unbeknown to us, also uncomfortable to store.

Our unconscious mind speaks to us using what I call ‘the language of the body’. Without being consciously aware of it we sometimes articulate where the problem or issue we are consciously talking about is stored in our body.

An Australian author, Annette Noontil, who wrote The Body Is The Barometer Of The Soul says it best with this quote:

“Disease does not bring pain. The pain of your soul brings disease. Pain is good because it gives you the idea that you need to look into yourself. Use the pain”.

This concept is best explained with my own experience. Recently, when visiting a kineseologist, the emotion raised was ‘heart felt distress’. Once my body released the emotion I spent several days acutely aware of lightness in my chest area. It’s very difficult to articulate, as the feeling was noticeable by the absence of the emotion. I had not been aware of it previously; until it was gone.

Some common language of the body are things such as:

  • My back is up against the wall
  • It’s a pain in the neck
  • Carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders
  • The situation is a headache (or a nightmare?!)
  • I just can’t see it (my lament before I experienced a detached retina!)
  • Trouble standing on ones own two feet
  • Shouldering the burden
  • Having my arms full
  • Lacking direction (problems with legs or feet)

This is rudimentary stuff. I'm sure you could think of others.

The above-mentioned book explains:

  • Concepts and organs that are connected with which chakras or energy centre; for example Chakra One is affected by dissatisfaction, unworthiness, impatience and many other negative concepts.
  • Which positive concepts are connected with which bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tendons; for example Right Scapula (shoulder) is associated with taking responsibility of your time, seeing it is directed for your benefit.
  • Ailments and the associated attitudes that go against you; for example colour blindness: not seeing things as they are or ear infection: stagnating, impatience and not tolerating new information.

There is much I don’t understand. Many people are more clever than I when it comes to the language of the body. I marvel that this information is available. Where did such knowledge come from? So often I have proven it worthy from personal experience and in the cases of clients.

Again in the words of Donna Noontil:

"Understand that you are a soul with a physical body (not a physical body with a soul), a spiritual being – energy – and that soul is the energy or the life force that keeps the cells of your body alive".

At that rate, I think it’s worth listening to what my body has to say. If I can hear than maybe I can understand.

After all, the unconscious mind holds the blueprint for perfect health.

Hi Heather. I enjoyed this article. As an NLP Practitioner, I know that the unconcious mind is extremely powerful and learning to tap into it can make a tremendous difference to people.

Aaauugghhh... C4men I clicked 'Remove' on your lovely comment in a vague moment when I was thinking 'reply'. If anyone is interested in the book C4men is reading (as I am) her comment was: "Sure, Path of Empowerment by Barbara Marciniak. It has a wide scope but one that is provoking". Thanks, C4men! Wasn't censoring you on purpose! lol

The book I am reading at the mo talks about how certain parts of the body if in pain mean there is a blockage of some sort. Poblems in the legs or feet indicate issues of perserverance or difficulties in the arms or hands show lack of willingness to embrace life. At least its something to think about. The language of the body, I love this article Heather.

Yes, C4men, it's another of these topics that is fascinating. I have proved it often enough to respect it and know I don't know a whole lot about it! Would you recommend the book you're reading?

Thank you for sticking with it Rob. I don't know if the concepts rattling in my head are big or there is a better way I could express them. I love your comments and questions as sometimes it even gives me an altered perspective. Often I have had comments (from others as well as you) that at first I don't connect with and then I re-read the article too and can totally see where that person is coming from and the conclusion they've drawn. Everyone has been spot on. It makes the topic dynamic and exciting to me and is a lesson on how we're all on different learning curves.

Heather another deep article that makes one think, the pains and emotions one feels are miss understood as local problems in the area of the pain. If deeper thought given, a better understanding of the pain or emotion sought, an easier solution to the problem obtained. Am I understanding you right? I can fully agree that a lot of our problems, sicknesses etc are self inflicted, when things are going wrong for me my health tends to suffer, a conscious mind "shake up" for positiveness seems to improve the health. Am I talking sense? Is this what you mean?

Everything you say is true Rob. As to whether it's what I meant, probably not totally, and you're on the right track with it all anyway. Words are only as good as the meaning we personally give them. It's good to know when our cup is full and savour the moment rather than get more out of it than what we don't already see perhaps? Just my random thoughts in response to your pondering. Your comments always make me think too and try it on for size... very beneficial for us both! Thank you .

I would rather appear confused and give my meaning, than merely passing a comment of good article. I have reread the article a few times now, and when I read out loud it seems to help. I think I have a better understanding now of what you are expounding. A good article, difficult for my mind to wrap around in one sitting, should know better than to give your articles a one read need more sometimes to get the deeper meanings you manage to get across.
