Reveals the precise correspondences between specific emotional and mental tensions and the illnesses and traumas of the body * Explains how physical complaints--energetic disturbances that lead to ailments or chronic conditions--are your soul speaking to you * Shows how the body part affected as well as which side it is on pinpoints what your soul is trying to tell you and what you need to work through emotionally * Physical complaints - energetic disturbances that lead to ailments or chronic conditions - are how your soul speaks to you about what's hindering your development. As Michel Odoul shows, the "proof" of this lies in the clear correspondences between emotional and mental tensions and specific ailments. Providing a reference grid of body-mind connections, he explains, for example, how skin conditions reflect difficulties with aggression from the outside world and knee problems indicate inflexibility or tension in relationships. He shows not only how each side of the body has specific meanings and connections to emotions, relationships, and family but also how the upper and lower halves of the body have specific connections--together forming four quadrants with unique Yin-Yang balances, where Yin represents emotional issues and Yang represents action/inaction. Offering keys to deciphering how the soul speaks through the body, the author shows that we can learn to see physical ailments not as something caused by chance or fate but as a message from our soul. By releasing the energies and patterns they point to, we can return to a state of health and forward movement on our soul's evolutionary path.
