Spiritual Anatomy

Magick of Reiki: Focused Energy for Healing, Ritual, & Spiritual DevelopmentOne of the books I'm currently reading is the Magick of Reiki: Focused Energy for Healing, Ritual, and Spiritual Anatomy. I'm currently reading the chapter on spiritual anatomy and came across something I found interesting and thought I would share. :)

"Teachers who focus on the medical aspects of Reiki often spend less time on the chakras, and may focus instead on the physical anatomy of the body. The physical body speaks to us through a symbol system that is not as esoteric as the chakra system. Each part of the body represents specific psycho-spiritual issues. Illness or injury in a particular part of the body represents a mental, emotional, or spiritual imbalance in the area of consciousness represented by that part of the body. Use this list to learn and understand the system of boy symbolism.

Left Side: Feminine, receiving, personal, home, private
Right Side: Masculine, giving, projecting, work, public
Head/Face: Identity
Eyes: Seeing the world clearly, looking at the past/present/future
Ears: Listening to others, listening to the inner voice
Mouth/Teeth: Nourishment, communication
Throat: Speaking truth, communication, listening/speaking balance
Shoulder/Arm: Communication, self-expression
Hands: Dominant Hand: ability to give. Nondominant hand: ability to recive.
Heart: Love, self-love, relationships
Bones: Support, strength, foundation, reliability
Back: Support, strength, standing in your truth, being yourself
Breast: Feminine, mother, nourishment, childhood
Stomach: Nourishment, mother
Liver: Anger, fear, resentment, feeling unprotected
Intestines: Discrimination/discernment, work, nervousness, release
Kidneys: Balance, relationships, cleansing
Reproductive: Sexuality, pleasure, family, shame
Bladder: Anger, fear
Eliminative: Fear of death, holding on to harmful energies, release
Thighs: Freedom, activity, action, sport, recreation
Knees/Shins: Responsibility, pressure, tension, stress, honor
Ankles: Individuality, social support, friendship
Feet: Creativity, music, art, dance support, depression escape.

I've also found the study of the medical astrology to be very helpful in finding the spiritual root of physical ailments. This discipline relates parts of the body to various signs and organs, and then correlates the spiritual issues related to each sign and planet to the illness. Chakras, symbolism, and astrology are all methods for understanding the relationship between consciousness and physical health."

If you are interested in reading more, I would highly recommend his book. I have found it to be an easy read and very enlightening to anyone wanting to learn more about healing. :) Enjoy!
