My husband is 61 yrs old. We live and work at Muscat at this time. He has been diagnosed diabetic in 1986 (when he was 35 yrs).
He has been just increasing the dosage of his allopathic medicines to control his diabetes. It no longer works and doctor has asked him to go for injections, which he refuses to.
He has been having severe pain in the left knee since mid-April.
The allopath doctor gave an injection in the bone and said it is beginning of paralysis. He also said not to massage with any oils or balms. Only to keep ice packs.
He cannot lie down horizontal and sleep or turn sides. The pain is bearable if he is moving about, but unbearable when he comes home and relaxes. I cannot bear to see him suffering so much. Please suggest a mantra for healing this problem urgently.
We cannot leave this job and go away to India (Mumbai). We have a daughter who will be getting married in Dec 2013. Until then, we have to be here and working.
Left knee indicates that he has done something unfair to his mother.
Let him analyze his relationship, his thoughts and opinions about her.
Ask him to do the forgiving exercise daily 200 times.
Download a picture Kausalya (Sri Rama’s mother) and keep it under his pillow.
Ask him to thank all the places, where he stayed and lived in his sixty years of life.
Chant “OAK, CHERRY PLUM, WALNUT” 100 times over a cup of water and give him that water daily.
You chant “CHICORY, RED CHESTNUT, CHERRY PLUM”.
There need not be any concern for diabetes.
Elbow means embrace. If you have a problem there, then you can’t give love to anyone.
Pain in Left Elbow
Keerthi Prasad developed a pain in the left elbow. In addition he was coughing for 15 years. Left side means receiving – love. Suppose you don’t receive love from somebody or if you give more space to a person then you will suffer in the left elbow.
Keerthi’s pain shows that he is not receiving his due love from his family. Who is the culprit – his family or him? In his case he is the one. For 15 years he never laughed. He will not look at his wife while talking to her. He will keep finding fault with the cleanliness of house. By constantly criticizing and showing his anger to his wife and children, he maintained a stoic distance from them. There was disharmony in the house. They hate him so much that they don’t want him to be in the house.
“If the house is in order probably I may not be alive”, his wife says. Sometimes the person living with you will say what the body is saying to you. I gave him Harmony pack – Beech for criticism, Willow for aversion and anger, and Walnut to change and adjust to his family (not the other way around).
He is a changed person now. His two children are very happy because they see him smile. Pain is almost reduced now and it’s bearable.
Cough represents anger. It’s more with him. Wet cough – recent anger and dry cough – anger is chronic.
Pain in Right Elbow
Venki, a thirteen years old kid, whenever he takes a pen to write something, he gets pain in his right arm – his writing hand. If there is pain in the right hand – “take care of me” is the message. With the pain in his right hand, he is telling his parents to take care of him. What’s the problem here? He is terribly angry with his parents.
While he was talking with Naran, he was holding his left elbow. Elbows are used to embrace others. Right hand holding the left elbow – left elbow means he wants some love and appreciation and he desires for it.
Venki is studying in 8th standard. Not even once any of his parents attended his school. He comes first in athletics and a class topper in Tamil, his mother tongue. He is average in other subjects. No appreciation from his parents. His parents told him, if he gets 1st in other subjects, like Math and science then they will come to school.
His body is saying that his parents have not shown any love and appreciation. “Hey! Parents take care of me! I need to be loved”. Why he gets a pain in the right hand then. Observe where his hand is going. It touches the left elbow. Observe the gestures as well as the pain. They have more value than just mere words.
He was prescribed Chicory (longing for love) and Willow (for his anger against parents). His parents were advised to give the emotional security that the child needs.
A girl after she got married and moved to her husband’s house, very often she phoned up her mother asking for suggestions concerning how to handle her in-laws. In no way she could mingle with her in-laws. In addition, she will complain about them to her parents. She compared her husband’s actions with her father’s and pointed out the differences between them.
She developed a lower back pain. Lower back means place of support. There is no pain while sitting or lying. There is pain only while walking. The body says “you are secured here. By your behaviour don’t spoil your place in your new family. Adjust yourself to fit in here. This is your place of security.”
Soon after her marriage, the girl developed a feeling of being forsaken as she was away from her parents. She felt insecure and lonely without her father around. A sense of incapacity had set inside her. She was resisting changing and adjusting to the new environment and thus a new phase of her life.
One dose of Bach Flower Remedy Walnut and Chicory cured her pain. Within one month, she acclimatized to the new environment.
Change is the order of life. Accept it.
