I have a minor issue on my left arm. I think I get the message, but what I don´t understand is "left" as compared to "right". The more receptive, feminine side perhaps?

Anyone having any idea about this?

 

Best regards
Mattias

left is the emotional side. the feelings that are being suppressed or not acted upon.

Yes, I also have questions about this.  My right side is typically tighter and smaller. My left side is larger, more plump and usually a victim of the right side.  Just last week I nearly cut my left thumb off with my right hand.  Today I tripped and punctured my left big toe.  I'm wondering what is going on here and also a more in depth explaination for the differences between the left and right sides.

The right side of the body represents the Yang energy and is outwardly directed. It is the actions that we take in the material world. The left side of the body represents the Yin energy and is inwardly directed. It is the actions that we take for spiritual growth.

Yin or the feminine energy is all about stillness, inclusiveness, receptiveness, passivity, intuition, emotions and growth. It is all that is hidden within us and all the possibilities that are possible. The Yin projects the future into the present emotionally, and creates the environment for the Yang to express Himself materially.

Yang or the masculine energy is all about action, giving, logic, willpower, determination, resoluteness and intellect. It is the force that helps bring possibilities into existence. The Yang projects the past into the present logically, and creates the concrete environment for the Yin to feel safe to express Herself.

Both the masculine and feminine energy are complementary in nature and an imbalance in either creates imbalances in our health and in our life. The goal is to bring both into balance and use them in a balanced way on a personal level, and use them in a balanced way in the world.

The Ancient cultures have always given the Yin or the feminine energy more importance. Martial arts emphasises action through stillness - another salutation towards the Yin. War weapons were carved with intricate designs, again reminding the Yang about the reason for His existence.

Unfortunately, we have been feeling more and more separated in our energies, and perhaps it is time to bring them back into balance by understanding both these sides that exist within us.

Power comes through emotions. By repressing or suppressing our emotions, we are effectively cutting off the creative flow of energy that runs through us. But the power of emotions need to be directed in a positive way. To do that, we need to release all emotions that make us react in a negative way.

The subject of Yin and Yang is a very deep one, and once undertaken brings a lot of insights into our nature and the nature of things in the universe. I have only written a short synopsis here.

Ernst has addressed a part of it in his Cards of Truth course in the Beginners Course. I had already been studying the subject for a few years, and I learnt a little bit more from his course this year.

Almost cutting your left thumb with your right hand indicates that your emotions are trying to tell you something that you are trying hard not listen to. Tripping over and puncturing your left toe adds emphasis to the same issue. Taking the time to understand why you are feeling what you are feeling might help you logically see how you can take steps forward to get you what you need. I wonder if it has something to do with your home or your roots/foundation.

LOL. How much do you want to know? 🤣 

Since I wasn’t sure about the reason or the extent of information you were looking for, I wanted to direct you to others who have done more extensive research on this, so you could pick and choose. A quick search on Google turned up a whole list of websites, so the material is out there to use as a starting point.

I have not studied it, but Louise Hay has a book where she has listed symptoms and causes, and that might be helpful as study material. There is an old book about reading body language by Allan Pease (I think!) that I had read decades ago, and that will give some interesting insights. “Heal your wounds” by Lise Bourbeau is another good one that covers a few.

Ernst might have covered some in his medical astrology or 5 elements course. I have not listened to them yet, so not sure. But it all manifests in the organs and in the physical body, so perhaps you can see the connection for yourself and how it works. Another study would be chakras as any energetic blocks also manifest on the physical level.

For example, think about feeling responsible, and your shoulders automatically lift up to ‘take on the burden’. But ‘feeling responsible’ mean different things to different people? Someone who has been taking on too much responsibility will have slumped shoulders. Someone who is proud to take on responsibility will have a puffed chest and shoulders back.

Clenched fists means holding oneself back, but hands are an extension of the chest. But holding oneself back also means holding Mars back, which then becomes about the middle back. But is it the right holding back or the wrong holding back? Can you see how everything is inter-related?

I am not sure if this is what you were looking for, because ‘emotions’ and ‘feelings’ are different. So, all in all, a wonderful study to embark upon. I might have made it sound more complex than it is, but it’s not. You already know some of it.

The best way to study it and find a correlation is through occasional body scanning during the day. If you want to take it further, you can bring up emotions while you are alone and relaxed and map it as to where you feel it. Some will be easy to pinpoint, while others will take time as those places have become numb as a way of protection.

At the moment, I am focused on the face and it is interesting how reactive it can be to unconscious thoughts, and the only way I am aware of what is happening ‘back there in my head’ is when I become aware of areas holding tensions in the face.

If this is for your own healing journey or you want to try it out on yourself, ask away and I will share what I found useful on a personal level, and you can use it as a basis to start from.
