Shoulder pain and immobility can signal emotional, spiritual and energetic imbalances calling for change.
According to healing consultant and awakening coach, Fiona Moore, shoulder pain is like a tap on the shoulder to wake up to your gifts and express yourself more fully in life.
She shares this example from her work.
Kate came to me for help to heal a painful frozen shoulder. It seized up about the time she started dating.
Just a coincidence?
Not when we hold the perspective that physical issues are connected with our emotions and spiritual life.
The message in the pain
I asked Kate how she felt about herself and life.
She enjoyed being self-reliant but found the weight of her responsibilities a burden and wanted a partner to share the load.
She had tried many different treatments for her shoulder pain with little or no success.
Similarly, after fifteen years of on and off relationships Kate was disheartened and concluded she had a problem with intimacy.

Connect the dots
Our physical bodies can’t talk with words, they talk in symbols.
Kate’s attempts to find a mate sounded like her experience with her shoulder. She felt burdened by life and couldn’t rely on her shoulder to hold up. Nor could she find a man to partner with and lean on for support.
Kate’s body was telling her that her shoulder pain was a wake up call.
Deep down in cellular memory
In a gentle inquiry Kate came face to face with a buried memory. What surfaced both surprised her and simultaneously made sense.
She saw how mother, grandmother, great grandmother and had either lost their spouse to early death or had been abandoned. In every case the women had been left to raise children on their own.
From shock to melting
Kate inhaled deeply as the realization dawned that her inability to find a mate concealed a fear that if she found someone to love and start a family with he would either die or leave her to fend for herself.
As Kate stood in witness to her past compassion rose up for the struggle and strain her mother’s line endured. Waves of tears followed and then relief. Kate’s courage to fully face her pain released a pattern of energy in her body. A shift that extended into her life in general and down her ancestral line.
Over the next six months Kate treated her shoulder to gentle yoga and body work. This time she gradually regained mobility and dissolved pain. More than this, Kate knew that she was now free of repeating her past relationship history. She felt fresh optimism for finding a partner she could lean on and open her heart to.

My neck and shoulders have been really stiff and painful for the last few months and I can’t seem to shake it. I’ve been having some huge life decisions I need to make and just keep putting it off. How can I resolve my problems when I’m depressed and emotional?
Hi Thelma, health is a combination of many factors, including emotional health. When we hold on to feelings or get stuck with life choices we add stress to our life and body. I encourage you to learn how to let go of painful or difficult emotions so that stress falls away and your mind and body can return to health.

Great case study. Once you learn how to read your own body-messages and allow it to release, shift, réorganise energy, life becomes so easy.
I would welcome your offer of a clarity conversation about my frozen shoulder diagnosis.
