Someone in my family has lung vulnerability and I decided to ask my own lungs for insights into this organ. This is what the lungs had to say:
LUNGS ALLOW YOU TO TAKE IN YOUR LIFE. THE DEGREE TO WHICH YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR LIFE IS THE DEGREE TO WHICH YOUR LUNGS CAN SERVICE YOU. THESE JOYOUS ORGANS WANT YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST. THEY WANT TO EXPAND AND TAKE IT ALL IN BUT SOMETIMES MENTAL PATTERNS THWART THEIR GOALS. FEAR IS THE MAIN RESTRICTOR. IT TENSES THE MUSCLES ESPECIALLY IN THE CHEST.
Some of our fears are fairly obvious and we readily admit to them, things like fear of the dark or fear of heights. But some of our other fears are harder to perceive and we don’t even want to admit them to ourselves, such as fear of not being good enough, fear of failure and fear of rejection. I sense that this type of fear is the type that causes lung weakness.
Interestingly, this family member that I spoke of has become more comfortable with life, more in control of personal environment and lifestyle and grown in maturity, and the lung situation has improved tremendously and is not really much of an issue. I feel that in this case the lung problems used to be that body’s reaction to stresses in life, and that new ways of coping with stress were found. I have found it to be true that our bodies are our best link to our emotional states because they physically manifest emotional problem areas. You just have to pay attention.
