Surely on more than one occasion, you have noticed that when feeling nervous, anxious, sad, or angry, some types of physical pain occur. For example, if you go to a job interview, your hands start to sweat and your heart begins to beat rapidly as a logical reaction to getting the job. If you lose a loved one, you can feel devastated and sad, at the same time your head or your whole body is likely to hurt.
This happens because all emotions are linked to physical pain, according to a study carried out by the professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Aalto in Finland, Lauri Nummenmaa, who together with his colleagues, carried out several experiments to see where the body felt the impact of pain on each of the basic emotions.
Making a total of 13 emotions studied, among them: anger, fear, disgust, happiness, sadness, love, depression, pride, envy, among others, the experts concluded that positive emotions such as love and joy run throughout the body, whereas the negatives are fixed in some specific areas.
The sensations of the body
Regardless of beliefs or ideological cultures, it is proven that the physical reactions of the body are correlated with emotions, since the brain prepares biological mechanisms that respond to environmental stimuli, as a way of innate survival; these symptoms are verifiable at first glance with breathing and heart rate.
We know that medicines relieve physical pain since that is their function, however, when the effect of the medicines wears off, emotional pain often persists; That is why it will be important to learn to understand and properly manage emotions, to end the root problem. As David Ponce, author of the book “ More love and less ibuprofen ” says.
That said, I share a list of physical pain and its emotions, take note:
1 Back pain
It is common for people who have an excessive load of responsibilities and work, to suffer from frequent back pain. Usually, it is suffered by people who fulfill the role of providing for their family , since generally other people depend on him or her (financially).
The pain almost always comes from excess, from supporting what our inner self does not want to bear, which is why it becomes an emotion. In this case, there are four related and blocked emotions that are: worry anger, fear, and sadness.
To heal it is recommended to learn to delegate responsibilities to others in order to lighten the load, as well as ask yourself what it is you really want to do and what you have to do. Find some time to reflect and work on what you are really passionate about, so your pain will completely decrease.
Headache or migraine pain is a very strong pain that often disables the person who suffers from it. The emotions that are related to this condition are stress, anxiety, and states of sadness since these generate chemical changes in the body.
Usually, this pain is caused by an upset or something that produces great frustration, or a conflict; also when you try too hard to do something, or when you are obsessed with what is expected in the future; as well as insecurity, perfection, or self-criticism.
In conclusion, they appear due to having conflicts between thoughts, intellect, and being overloaded with personal needs and desires, even due to lack of love on the part of someone.
The ideal is to focus on each situation without stressing yourself more than necessary, making the necessary changes to avoid thinking negatively. Give life a break to make your decisions flow freely, receiving peace and harmony.
3 Pain stomach
Diseases linked to the digestive system such as gastritis, heartburn, abdominal pain, colitis, slow digestion, inflammation, or diarrhea, are related to stress, anxiety, nervousness, and chronic depression.
These are usually presented as a sign that there are events or people in your life that you do not accept quite well and that you want them to change. As well as disagreeing with a situation that puts you at risk out of your comfort zone, since you feel insecure, uncomfortable, and unable to digest certain life events.
Sometimes people become intolerant of certain behaviors, habits, or ways of thinking different from their own, being rigid when it comes to giving in. Remember: the body tells you that you want to accept new situations in life with love or accept others as they are; stop worrying about changes and adapt to the new.
4 Neck pain
In general, neck pain manifests itself when the head is moved in a certain direction, or by making a sudden movement, or simply because we sleep in the wrong positions. This occurs because there are situations that annoy, feeling apathy, fear, or disgust.
In some cases, it indicates inflexibility to certain situations or points of view of the people around you, which puts your balance and tranquility at risk. In most cases, the pain indicates that you are pressured or upset by situations related to material things, money, work, problems in intimacy with your partner, or family relationships.
The ideal thing to heal will be to learn to face fears of annoying situations, looking for actions to resolve conflicts from the point of view of love.
It is essential to learn to control negative emotions to prevent them from concentrating and generating a physical problem, triggering diseases. Remember to heal your mind, thoughts, and soul; practice forgiveness and your spiritual side; if you do, many pain will disappear like magic.
