What is the spiritual meaning of sickness

The secret language of the disease

What your soul wants to tell you through your body

“Interpretation of clinical pictures” is based on the long experience of doctors, psychologists and specialists in psychosomatics. They recognized: For every objectively diagnosable disease there is a subjective emotional topic. With every illness your subconscious wants to tell you something.

If you understand this "secret language" of your soul, you will cope better with the disease and counteract it more confidently. This does not replace conventional medical treatment, but every therapy becomes more efficient if your "inner doctor" helps.
Golden Rule: Look for the message that may be in your illness.


Beware of drawers!

This is not about a rigid scheme "disease X means Y". Clinical picture interpretation offers an open field of meditation, which should stimulate you to reflect on your illness. There are no two gastric ulcers alike, only individual patients who deal with similar disease patterns.

The interpretation patterns are signposts that set a framework and describe the emotional atmosphere that can arise around a certain illness. Some aspects sound hurtful and insulting, but can express a deep truth that only the patient can find himself.
Golden Rule:
Never use your knowledge to judge others. And don't judge yourself!

Illness as a school of life

The French philosopher and mystic Blaise Pascal said: "Illness is the place where you learn" - and not a punishment! Instead of looking for your guilt or that of others, ask yourself, “What do I owe the future?” See your body as the most honest teacher you can find.

Ask him: “What am I missing in terms of wholeness?” Then the interpretation of clinical pictures can be a wonderful aid to perceive your own life topic more clearly.
Golden Rule:
Anything that does not fit you in the description of your illness and triggers defense reactions in you is particularly worthwhile!

Illness: cold, weak immune system

#### AdBanner ####

This is affected: Your internal defense system.

This is behind it: You subconsciously say no to everything; physically you are too open to pathogens, instead you need more mental openness to suggestions; You are fighting an inner issue in an exaggerated manner.

This helps: Start with increasing your defenses (from Kneipp methods to an "inner smile"). You have strengths in you that want to be developed and that can give you strength. Learn to defend yourself fairly - this form of aggression is healthy! Try to open your narrow boundaries to more substantial encounters with others.

That is the goal: Gain strength and spiritual openness that will deepen your relationship life. Live by the motto “My consciousness is as open as possible; but my body is defensible and only open where it is really necessary ”.

Disease: diabetes

This is affected: Your pancreas, which breaks down food; Your ability to differentiate between war and peace.

This is behind it: You cannot let the sweetness of life into your core (the cells); there is a fear in you of getting involved in love; They have a tendency to get "angry" because of their inability to love; You are not tuned to receive anything in love (your cells do not open to glucose).

This helps: Try to spot fear and tightness in your love affairs. You need more clarity about closeness and distance. Send clear signals to others - friendly but firm. Keep the unloved at bay so that you can enjoy life itself more. Set yourself apart emotionally. Learn to say no without a guilty conscience. Go on the offensive and open yourself physically, mentally and spiritually.

That is the goal: know the healthy balance between taking and giving. Allowing love and emotional dependence. Finding new ways to enjoy the sweetness of life figuratively.

Disease: high blood pressure

This is affected: Blood and blood vessels; the traffic routes of your life force.
This is what lies behind it: You are under tension or you are putting yourself under pressure; despite constant proximity to conflict you do not approach a solution; They do not face the problem, but persist in a constant readiness to defend themselves and the tension of expectation; They take refuge in external hustle and bustle; You want to be in control and have a lively spirit of contradiction; They share instead of communicating.
This helps: Find the crucial conflict and aim for an offensive solution. Reduce the unnecessary excuses. Name everything that is suppressed in your case. Learn to release the pressure at the right point. Let your heart speak more often. Become a better listener.
That is the goal: to acknowledge one's own strength that can face a dispute. Dare to look inward into your own depth. To devote oneself to the affairs of the heart with love and care.

Disease: gastric ulcer

This is affected: Your stomach; Your feelings; Your receptivity; Your hunger for fulfillment.
This is behind it: Because you are not expressing your undigested feelings, they have to be "digested" on the physical level; In the absence of material alternatives, your own stomach wall is eaten up by stomach acid and abandoned to self-mangling; Your picture: Life throws salt into open wounds that have been hurting for a long time; You have strong defenses in your stomach; often with nestling types who cannot make the jump.
This helps: Realize your longing for maternal security, love and care. Do not devour conflicts, but work on them consciously. Allow yourself more rest and distance so that you can digest impressions better. Stop pretending to be independent. Give up the victim attitude of the "poor swallower". Even if it is difficult for you: Dare to blow up the child's nest that has become a cage.
That is the goal: Leaving the comfort and confines of childhood to grow up.

Disease: rheumatism

This is affected: Your joints and muscles; Your range of motion and articulation; Your inner engine and your strength.
This is behind it: Your rusted joints indicate old, outdated issues (slag, rheumatic nodules) and block your further progress; a stuck situation acts like a piston seizure and prevents you from running “like clockwork”; in the stiff limbs in the morning there is mental rigidity in relation to life; You are blind to your own aggression; You have strong feelings of guilt with simultaneous "benevolent tyranny"; They carry hostile impulses, but are not allowed to show them.
This helps: Look for ways to better articulate yourself. Your self-aggression can become a vital source of energy if you concentrate on your emotional development potential. Try to identify and stop your assaults on the lives of others in good time. See through your own tendency towards convulsive self-sacrifice. Tackle your undigested problems. Purify your body with therapeutic fasting.
That is the goal: Set yourself the task of getting negative forces (egoism, immobility, lust for power, rigidity) out of the unconscious shadow area; gain mental and emotional mobility and warmth.

Illness: obesity

That is concerned: Your fatty tissue, which you need as surplus and reserve; Your stomach, your emotions and your receptivity.
This is behind it: You embody outer fullness, but it's about inner fulfillment; Food serves as a substitute for a feeling of unity and an overflowing heart; You have put on a protective layer against your environment, which is perceived as loveless, and are isolated in your protective castle; the desire for rest leads to passivity in the expression of one's own personality due to the excess weight; with the help of being overweight you are escaping from your own sexual charisma; Women can appear “pregnant” or “fulfilled”; Your body has to carry unlived burdens on other levels; Your pounds speak of an unconscious sense of importance, authority and power.
This helps: on to new pleasures that have nothing to do with food; fine arts, erotic rituals, gentle massages, lustful sexuality. Create a mental shield out of wit, quick-wittedness and arguments. The more agile your mind becomes, the more unnecessary the pounding defensive ring becomes. Stand by your man or woman by consciously striking or feminine clothing. Gain weight at higher levels; resist the inertia factor; learn to bite your way through life. Some of the rewards that are due to you have to be fought for first. Create your transition to new patterns and habits with regular fasts. Ensure regular exercise (Nordic walking, treadmill, rowing machine) in an oxygen balance.
That is the goal: It is about a comprehensive love for life including body, soul and spirit. The more you gain mental weight and awareness, the more often you will find out that you are important and that you don't have to be overweight. You are no longer expanding your sphere of influence physically, but rather on your inner level.

Disease: herniated disc

This is affected: Your intervertebral discs, which form the female pole of the spine, and the spine itself, which provides mobility, support and sincerity.
This is behind it: A feminine, soft aspect is put under pressure by 2 hard masculine elements; an inner pressure that you are under suddenly breaks through; You are overworked and the pressure is literally getting on your nerves; You experience yourself not in balance; like your vertebrae or intervertebral discs, important life issues are displaced or pinched; You are not "sincere" yourself; You demand excessive sincerity by being rigid and opinionated and not being able to "give in".
This helps: Consciously face your "feminine-indulgent" side; examine what should be "directed" differently in your life; "Fix" relationship problems again; use the external immobilization to think about more inner flexibility: Where am I too rigid or insincere? Give in to internal pressure in good time.
That is the goal: Make your life consciously polar by creating tension and relaxation, hardness and softness yourself; if you leave rigid positions, you will become more active and flexible; be sincere and humble to avoid humiliation; say goodbye to the compulsion to perform; walk the path of unconditional love.

Illness: sudden hearing loss

That is affected: your ears. The theme is: "What can I listen to?"
This is behind it: Outwardly, you experience an extreme situation of excessive demands, in which you suddenly lose your hearing ability; check which statements fit you and lead to the core of your mental problem: “I can no longer hear that”, “I have so much on my mind”, “Can't you hear?”; Sudden hearing loss is an abrupt retreat into the inner world, unfortunately in an unhealthy form. What do you want to distance yourself from? In the case of noises in the ears: Which external voices are covered by internal noises? For inner ear hearing loss: why do you turn off hearing on an inner level?

This helps: Provide opportunities for retreat in good time; Better be prepared to cope with sudden decisions; listen more to your own inner voice and obey it (even in relationship problems!); shield yourself from the hustle and bustle (time out, meditation, moderation) before a sudden hearing loss provides extreme shielding.
That is the goal: Your illness can help you trust and listen to your own inner voice. You learn to listen carefully to others and to listen to the soft tones.

Disease: bronchial asthma

This is affected: Your lungs with the topics of contact, communication and freedom, as well as your defense system, which is about defense.
This is behind it: There are 6 problem areas. 1. You cannot find a balance between give and take. You take over; You threaten to “suffocate” because you take too much and give too little; You long for love without being able to give it.
2. You want to isolate yourself. They do not want contact, they isolate themselves, flee into the ideal or formalistic; You are afraid of stepping into freedom and independence; You feel fear and tightness inside, but want to assert your claims to power on the outside.
3. You don't know what to do with your aggression. Imagine that your anger is stuck in your lungs. As a result, you have to "gasp with anger" because otherwise you cannot "vent" your anger.
4. You are caught in an imbalance between power and powerlessness. With your bad seizures, you return the pressure of people whose dominance you have just experienced; You long for “clean air”, but you don't like to resolve your conflicts; You would like to be above things, but you can't; Asthma is the tear that is "cried inside".
5. It's about sexuality, love and dirt. They fend off the dark areas of life, tend to be top-heavy; Relocation of sexuality (mucus production) to the chest.
6. You long for more freedom and space for yourself. In your current situation you cannot breathe freely and you cannot be yourself; Your fellow human beings (mother?) Do not give you enough space to develop.
This helps: 1. During breathing therapy, focus on exploring the breath balance between give and take. 2. Dare to be more open. 3. Name your anger. Blow yourself up with words! 4. Learn to assert yourself without pressure from the asthma attacks. 5. Allow everything you avoid and deal with it. 6. Make enough space for yourself.
That is the goal: Imagine that your consciousness is the inexhaustible inner space that you can occupy. As you breathe in and out, make yourself aware that the experience of “die and become” is part of life.
