Physical Aches And Pains May Have Deeper Spiritual Meanings Behind Them

As many have come to accept, everything happens for a reason. Every now and then, when we randomly experience pain or an unexplained sickness the reason for it goes beyond a medical diagnosis. Often these pains are an indication of a more complex spiritual problem, and here is a guide for which pain may signify what spiritual issue.


Hair- loss is an indication of the loss of one’s self-image. Often due to a traumatic experience or a stressful period, hair-loss is a symbol of the loss of one’s previous self.

The scalp, being the highest living part of your body, signifies a connection with one’s higher self. Skin-distress, itch, dandruff, or so on, are all indicators of a complex philosophical problem that may involve spirituality, religion, or a divine connection.

The most intimate form of interpersonal contact is touch. If one’s skin is sensitive to touch, with say eczema, boil, rash, or a more serious condition, it symbolizes one’s sensitivity to social interaction as well as one’s conflict with one’s inner-self.

Brain / Nervous system
Migraines, headaches, spinal pain, and other problems, may all be signs of an ‘information overload’. There is no escaping the plethora of information there is out there, and sometimes it gets to one’s brain. In turn, it lets us know that it’s under distress by giving pain signals through our bodies.

Our core identity is set deep in our bones. And any injury or trauma which influences the bone — especially the skull — is a sign that you are being forced to change. When you experience distress in your skull, your innermost self is at stake.

Our face is a mirror to our emotions, and any abnormality found on the face is an indication of our emotions being compromised.

Like information overload, the ears don’t respond well to listening to too much. When we’re listening to too much for a prolonged period of time, our ears may signal a problem by responding with an ear infection, earache, ringing ears, and so on.

We sometimes see some things but do not admit to the facts when we re-tell the information. Our eyes often respond to this ‘lack of truth’ with eye infections, optical nerve problems, and so on.

Pressure or blockage in the sinuses is usually a response to something left unsaid. If it’s really bothering you, think about what you did not say when you had to cure the problem.

Our noses subconsciously sense danger or an unwelcome environment. Nose-bleeds, blockage, or pressure are just some ways in which the nose is sending warning signals about the unfavorable environment you are in.

Our smile organ, the lips react negatively in the presence of conflicting personality or in an unwelcome situation. It often shows in the form of cold sores, inflammation, blisters, and so on.

Teeth, gums, and mouth
A toothache, gum bleeds, mouth infections, ulcers, and so on are all indicators of a financial imbalance. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may be going through financial strain.

If one is conflicted between reality and idealism, the neck will be affected the most, in the form of neck pain, spondylitis, and other neck issues.

If you have left something unsaid, the throat responds by getting sore or by losing your voice. Alternatively, it can also respond negatively if you’ve said something you weren’t supposed to.

It is known to have the metaphorical role of carrying a heavy burden, and when one of overworked or is under too much ‘workload’, one’s shoulder will respond with pain.

Arms are meant to embrace others and exhibit one’s affection. One’s arms will react negatively with pain if one is in a bad relationship or is stressed about someone’s presence in their life.

The wrist is the foundation of our handshake and, in turn, a window into our personality. An issue in the wrist signifies a lack of confidence or loss of one’s social standing.

Hands / Fingers
Our breadwinners, our hands are our prized possession dues to its significance in our work and social life. Any issues with the hand may indicate a job loss, a work transfer, or sudden change in work.

Ribs / Torso
One’s torso and ribs are a symbol of one’s personal space. If one’s personal space has been encroached, one may experience injury or pain around this region.


The next time you experience pains and problems in these areas and can’t really figure out what triggered it, there may be a deeper spiritual meaning you need to look into and rectify.
