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.
Vidya is married for 25 yrs. Now she has a herniated disk and back pain as well.
On their first night, Vidya told her husband that she is not interested in physical intimacy. However, they can get intimate only to give birth to a child. Later on, they have to abstain from it.
The husband would have wished if she had told him earlier, he would not have married her at all.
However, God has a reason behind every action. It is God’s Will.
She Imposed Her Will on Her Husband
They had a son and their physical relationship ended as she decided.
She had imposed her will on her husband! In addition, she was separated from him emotionally.
Now after 25 years, around the age of 55, she has the pain.
For the past five years, she has consulted many doctors, but to no relief from the pain. She had undergone different kinds of treatments and had gone through various types of scans too.
Let Us Analyze Her Case
Hernia means separation.
Back disks are separated as she has separated (alienated) herself from her husband.
Body is telling her now that what she had done twenty-five years ago back is not correct.
It would have warned her even at that young age in the form of pain. She would have taken then some painkillers. As she was young, she would have overcome the pain comfortably.
Unfortunately, at this age, she cannot rectify the mistake.
Therefore, I asked her to do the forgiving exercise.
The Forgiving Exercise given:
- She was to write her husband’s name and her name on a piece of paper, and kept it on her left palm.
- Then close it with her right palm and affirmed, “I am sorry. Please forgive me. Love, Thanks, and Divine!”
- Then she had to visualise sending them both to God’s source, to be healed by its light and love.
- Then she was to bring them back from God’s source and affirm, “Love! Thanks! Divine!”
- In addition, she had to do the affirmation, “Let this not happen in my next life. Let me then unite with my husband mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually”.
Her Progress Was Miraculous
When I suggested the above, I did not have much hope. However, after one month, she was almost all right.
She learnt yoga. Initially she had difficulties. However, after a few days of Yoga and Pranayama, she gradually gained some improvement.
Now her movements are not restricted. Her pain is bearable as well. She is able to walk joyfully. However, she feels a little bit of pain now and then.
Once you realize your mistake and ready to rectify it, then the body adjusts and rectifies the pain with the thinking let this person be pardoned 🙂
