Last update: 08 February, 2019

Emotions have great power in our body. In fact, if we don’t express them at the right moment, they become emotional pain, which can become chronic.

The most common chronic pain affect areas such as:

  • Neck
  • Back
  • Head

We can also suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), tachycardia, and ulcers or other stomach problems.

There are different studies that support the relationship between emotional pain and physical health. A relationship has been found between chronic pain and stress or traumas that have not been overcome.

It’s important to understand our inner world, in order to be able to face these emotions and not cover them over with medication.

You need to know what emotional problems are causing your physical pains.

You can achieve this by connecting with your true identity and essence.

7 types of emotional pain

1. Tooth pain

This happens when you don’t feel comfortable facing a situation, or you can’t find a way out of a situation. You feel pressure and strain and your emotional state can feed this pain.

  • Allow the energy to flow and don’t fight the pain. Everything passes and everything transforms.

2. Headaches

Headaches can happen due to stress, but also due to not expressing emotions.

  • You should take time to clear your head and let everything pass. Resting for a while or going for a walk are good options.

3. Neck or cervical pain

Neck pain arises when we hold onto resentments, anger… This is why it feels rigid.

  • It’s important to forgive both yourself and others.

Neck pain can also appear when you have communication problems or you struggle to get people to listen to you. This is closely related to fears and lack of forgiveness and acceptance towards yourself.

4. Shoulder pain

Emotional pain that manifests in your shoulders can feel like a heavy load, like a backpack you’re carrying around with you, loaded with your own problems and those of others.

Remember you can’t carry the whole world on your shoulders. Allow others to be responsible for their own problems.

It’s essential to think about yourself, this is the only way to minimize this load.

5. Stomach pains

This happens when you’re in an uncomfortable situation and you’re not able to digest what’s going on in your life.

It may be that unexpected situations are happening where you’re not willing to yield because you don’t accept the changes.

  • It’s essential to accept others and admit that there are different ways of seeing life.
  • This way you can open up, be more tolerant and for sure be happier.

6. Lower back pains

Lower back pain can arise if you’re experiencing financial problems that cause you a lot of stress.

It can also appear if you feel responsible for other people who depend on you.

  • Another reason it can happen is if you feel alone and that you can’t delegate your responsibilities to others and hence you feel a greater load.
  • It’s essential to learn how to delegate responsibilities to avoid taking on everything, and live free from ties.

7. Pain in the hands

The hands are the way we connect with the world.

If we suffer frequently from pain in the hands it can represent something you want, but that you struggle to achieve.

  • You feel that you can’t reach your objective by yourself or you feel bound to a person or situation that you can’t let go of.
  • It’s important to release and let go.

In her book You can heal your life, Louise Hay talks about how poorly managed emotions become illnesses, and some can be very serious.

If you listen to your body and learn to understand it, you can find peace with yourself. This will prevent your body from turning emotional pain into physical pain.

Then you’ll be able to forgive, love and be thankful… Thus, all these negative emotions that paralyze you and make you sick will disappear.

2. Enric Corbera

In his books, talks and Youtube videos, he maintains that the key to healing yourself is to find the hidden emotion that generates the conflict and triggers the illness.

This author assures that as soon as we become aware and realize what this emotion is, healing takes place.

He also explains that it’s important to change the irrational, limiting beliefs that cause separation between the brain and heart: what I think, what I feel, what I do.

These kinds of materials can be of great help to open your mind and heart to new concepts.

Remember how important it is to be healthy and happy.
