Full Body Pain

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Sometimes, our entire bodies ache. Whether from the flu, from an accident, or from perceived wear and tear on our human bodies due to physically demanding jobs or activities...chances are possible that the source of it is self hatred. There is no need to rush into an adamant NO here because there is no right or wrong answer. Full body pain speaks (screams) for itself. "I HATE YOU!" We are usually hating ourselves unconsciously, which can be slippery and hard to detect, hence the message of full body pain. I got the self hate disease a couple of years ago. It...

Low Back Pain

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

If you search spiritual/emotional message of low back pain and tightness, the description is financial based. Which, for me, is stating only the obvious. Duh...I know I have financial tightness and angst. I have for years, though with conscious attention, the fear has gone from a loud all consuming roar to a dull noise in the background. This is true for many humans- we've managed to organize and behave in our lives in such a way as to keep the fear to a minimum. When our low backs go out, even after all of our attention to maintenance and living...

Why Am I Still Here?

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Sometimes we feel stuck. My story is that I do not feel stuck in my life, but lately I've been having chronic dreams, unresolved dreams, mixing in past relationships, that leave me with the impression of feeling stuck again.  At least this time, I feel curious about the stuckness rather than miserable and imprisoned. Curiosity, I believe, did not kill the cat, but rather, saved her. Dreams, among other things, are a means to heal us...aka enable us to release feelings that we repressed in our past. They allow us to request, seek, and receive that which we wanted but did...

Healing Our Shadows: Dream Work Part 1

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

I've said this before but it bears repeating. The only way out of our self created despair, our self created hell, is through love of ourselves. I cannot speak from experience of living through torture inflicted by others, but I have lived through several bouts of self torture. And most of us in Western culture chronically live in a low grade of self inflicted torture. What we didn't realize was that we were 1) taught to constantly berate ourselves in the guise of improvement, which has 2) kept us hurt, fighting, efforting, suffering and 3) that this subliminally installed mechanism has allowed...
