"The body cries the tears the eyes refuse to weep."
A doctor told me this quote once after a visit for strep throat. He told me that the common factor for migraines, IBS, Fibromyalgia, and Depression was Past Traumatic experiences in a person's life.
As a Taoist, we believe that you create blockages in your physical body when you do not address and deal with events in your life. If you have a bad experience with something, you may assign negative energy to that event. Every time you think about it or are faced with a similar event, you continue to add negative energy to the idea. This snow balling monster just builds and builds over time, taking up vital energy that you survive on and using it to fuel itself. The experience not only takes up your energy but blocks other areas of your body from the energy it needs to function and thrive.
I'm told that as we face these monsters and make peace with the original event, we can decrease the size of the blockage and start to heal. When we can finally allow our eyes to see and cry from the original experience, our bodies will no longer have to compensate and try to release the built up pain.
