Our first experience of our skin is the contact we have (or don’t have) with our mother. This forms the foundation for the child’s feelings and understanding about the self and the environment. Little wonder that the skin has a strong emotional connection. And let us remember that the skin is the largest organ of the body.
While some skin issues may have a physiological component, all have an emotional ingredient. Think of how embarrassment shows itself with blushing and anxiety is displayed by the secretion of sweat. Stress is one of the leading factors for skin conditions. When the immune system is impaired certain skin issues are extremely challenging to heal.
Post traumatic stress is often revealed on the skin as a memory that needs to be cleared. Skin disorders such as eczema, rashes or itching can be linked to the individual wanting to do one thing but feeling compelled to do another. Internally, they may have an ‘itching’ to follow their heart yet externally they follow society, authority figures or misperceptions of their own mind.
In an online article, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4128841/ , case studies revealed that when the individuals cleared emotional blockages then their skin began to heal. Dr. John Demartini, human behaviour specialist explains that when we hold on to our emotions, past or present, we distort our vision which instantly affects our experiences, quality of life and blocks the pathway to manifesting the life we desire.
Over the years I’ve treated clients with psoriasis, eczema, scleroderma, skin cancer, skin lesions, scars and other conditions. All had energetical and emotional issues which was disrupting the flow of communication between one or more systems in the body as well as on an etheric level. When these disturbances were released, then the harmony in the whole being was once again restored allowing the body to self-heal and rejuvenate itself. Such a process can take time and can be compared to a snake when it sheds layers of its skin no longer necessary.
To be happy in your skin is what it’s all about. Feeling comfortable with your largest organ can make the world of difference to your life and how you experience it.
