Fibromyalgia is thought to be caused by a stressful impact, for example, infection, physical trauma, or psychological stress.
Holistically speaking, muscles are triggered by emotional states. The spiritual cause of fibromyalgia is when the emotional energy has become stagnant in the periphery of the muscles in the body.
Therefore, these suppressed emotions get trapped in the muscles and perpetuate a feeling of being stuck. Muscles are holding onto control, guilt and stubbornness, anger, rage, and resentment.
The love language of a person who is suffering from fibromyalgia may be different from normal expectations of how love is given and received. Here I give some insight from a holistic point of view.
But first lets look at the symptoms.
Stuck energy in the muscles eventually leads to other symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as:
- Sleep disturbance
- Cognitive problems
- Memory problems
- Pain in the muscles
- Problems with vision
- Jaw pain
- Paired tender points.
- Skin problems
- Urinary problems
- Dysmenorrhea (in women)
- Restless leg syndrome
- Joint pain and stiffness.
Your Love Language is Different from Others
Love language for a person with fibromyalgia tends to be different. There is a behaviour pattern for the need for attention, yet the attention does not meet your specific love language.
You may have experienced a lovely family environment, yet somewhere along the line your specific needs were not met. Perhaps the love you needed was different from your love language and you became needy for love that did not match your expectation. Therefore, you became needy for attention. This need for attention became a pattern of dependence and seeking approval from those around.
Eventually, unconsciously all your attention is going out towards your need for getting something back. Your energy is getting stuck out in your body, as your focus is on getting your needs met from an outside source.
Then you get stuck in a pattern such as a fear of letting go of your circumstances because of a fear of losing the attention of your loved ones.
You may also feel like a victim of circumstance and somehow you began to associate pain with attention.
Deep anger, rage and resentment towards a person or situation where you feel controlled, such as a partner, parent, sibling. This pattern of behaviour may go way back through the ancestral line. You may have felt disempowered and dominated by someone in your life.
The attention that you seek may come from a feeling that you have suffered enough. The approval you seek is to make up for your suppressed unique emotional needs that were not expressed or understood.
As you have worked hard in your life and experienced intense emotions you now want love, support, and nurture.
All of these aspects metaphysically mean that you have lost the ability return to your inner source of love. The need for approval from others becomes your love language. You feel lost and are unable to process the simplest of tasks without the need of help or approval.
How to Return to your Inner Power
From a holistic perspective, fibromyalgia takes time to heal, it requires patience, love, and gentle direction.
When I work with a client with fibromyalgia, they require a multi-level approach. Understanding the condition from a metaphysical perspective helps with recognising cognitive patterns of behaviour. Dealing with each aspect one step at a time, to not overwhelm.
One of the key aspects is to provide gentle bodywork to get the energy stuck in the muscles and periphery of the body to move and re-establish a flow.
The mind and body are connected, so by getting the energy moving again in the body, helps reduce pain, re-focus the mind and get clear on your emotional state.
In addition, helping a client discover what their love language is and how to communicate this, is hugely beneficial as well as offering strategies to help them deal with everyday life.
I work with clients in person in Lymington and Ringwood in Hampshire.
If you are unable to see me in person, I offer energy healing online therapy sessions, which combine therapy and energy healing techniques.
