I am often asked by my patients, how I know what physical, emotional and mental patterns are going on in their life simply by touching their spine. Here’s how...and it’s not magic.
The body records information in many different ways: through your memory, sensations (i.e. pain, tingling, heat, etc), emotions and physiology. Information can be transferred through your mind and also through your body. If the information is transmitted in a pattern over and over again, then it becomes ingrained into your nervous system.
For example, once you learn how to swim, that information is stored in your body and if you ever fell in the water, you would retrieve that info and swim. Same thing goes with playing a sport or riding a bike, even if you haven’t ridden in a while, once you get back on, you’re remember how to do it.
It is easy to see in physical patterns, however, it also happens with our emotions and thoughts. If you were told over and over again by your parents that money doesn’t grow on trees, that people who have large sums of money are bad, etc. then your body remembers that. If later on, when you are going for a raise and you have these patterns, what will show up? You may ask for less than you’re worth, you may never ask for a raise, if you got it, you may spend more than you normally would, etc. Why? Because early in your life you learned that money=bad, whenever you get money then you will subconsciously feel that you are a bad person. Since your body does not want to be “bad” then you will sabotage yourself.
When I feel your spine, I look at the patterns that have been recorded there and then I ask you questions about your life. Interested in finding out more? Come to our next beginner or advanced workshop.
