Making Sense of the Emotional Physical Connection

When first learning about physical illnesses and the emotions connected with them, I was confused. I learned that anger is held in the liver, grief and sadness in the lungs, fear in the kidneys, etc.  What I didn't understand was why this would be the case. Why is there an emotional physical connection?  What was the underlying reason for each emotion to oftentimes be associated with a specific organ or place in the body? I struggled to make sense out of this.

Over time I came across two differing theories as to why this may be the case.

"Since each organ has a vibrational frequency, as do emotions, the emotions will settle in an area with a corresponding frequency."

When I read this, it was an “a-hah!”  moment for me since now something made sense. I was now willing to look deeper into the books that link the physical and the emotional together. Now I could see why it would be possible to heal the physical issue when you heal the related emotional issue.

  • Later on though I came across another theory.  This was from information that Dr. Bradley Nelson, author of The Emotion Code, shared.  He teaches that the organs are what generate our emotions

Either way, there is certainly a connection between the emotional and the physical.

Examples Illustrating an Emotional Physical Connection

Great examples which illustrate this idea are the following tapping stories: 

      Back pain gone after doing EFT for entrepreneurial worries

      A bout of cystitis turns out to be a bout of guilt

And here are four articles which help to know how to find a related emotion:

      Steps to Healing

      How to find the emotion that may be causing the pain

      What is your body trying to tell you? 

      When clients can'’t access contributing emotions 


Books Which Make the Connection Between Physical Illness and Emotions

There are many books which make the connection for us by listing an illness and sharing possible emotional roots.
