The spine is our back, which is what is behind us: our past! The spine harbors all the past experiences we could not properly integrate. It is also where we carry everything that we do not want the world to see. It is where we store our “baggage” and our stresses.
Popular expressions such as ‘my boss is on my back’, ‘what a pain in the neck this project is’, ‘she carries the weight of the world on her shoulders’ or ‘this is a pain in the butt’ all embody the reality of where we store stress. Many past patterns that no longer serves us lay stagnant, stuck there, affecting our being and physiology.
When released, a new physiology emerges, a new quality of life is available, a new “you” unfolds, and healing is possible.
