Pain in the Neck – Understanding Cervical Issues


Going forward I will be writing blogs from my healing experiences on common ailments as I feel this will be very useful for people who want to avoid modern medication and doctor’s visit 🙂 or just lessen them. I love to take up energetic healing sessions however with my corporate job at times it is tough to accommodate them 🙂 but some clients are just meant to be healed.

I am writing about an interesting case of cervical issue. Cervical vertebrae are the seven vertebrae that help in flexing our neck and they act as a bridge between the body and the head area. The cervical vertebra protects the cervical nerves which control certain areas of the head, neck and upper back, including the arms and hands.

Please refer to my blog “Understanding your back pain” for the body mapping of the cervical nerves. Now Let us understand the neck and shoulder from an energetic perspective: Image Let us understand the Neck and Shoulder and see is there a behavioral and psychological Connection? As we all know that shoulder are synonymous with responsibilities. We see this mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Try carrying something with your hands and walk around, where would you put the weight that you carry so you don’t feel so heavy carrying it? Many people would place it on their shoulder. How about neck? Physically neck is use to change view from one point to another, from right to left, from bottom to up, north to south and east to west. Spiritually, neck is use for same purpose too. At the higher level of our being, neck would be used to change view from a point of life to another point of life. When we are stuck up in life due to our narrow perspective or we avoid looking around and avoid change , being clairvoyant one can see stuck up energy around the neck area. This blockage in energy starts affecting the alignment of the cervical vertebra and may cause:

  • Cervical Sprain / Strain
  • Cervical Disc Herniation
  • Nerve Impingement (Cervical Radiculopathy)
  • Muscle Spasm
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Arthritis

Most of the physical problems are symptoms of the psychological cause in the case of cervical (C1-C7) one of the major reasons is stress that is due to our responsibilities as for most of us our job is helping in carrying our responsibilities for our family and other commitments in life. Here is what Louise Hay says about Neck and Shoulder pain:

Neck – refusing to see other sides of the question, stubbornness, inflexibility

Shoulders – represent our ability to carry our experiences in our life joyously, we make life a burden by our attitude. Once we know the emotional causes it is easy to understand that physical issues are mere symptoms but the real cause are mostly psychological in nature. As a Pranic Healer a week of healing helps align the vertebra and ease cervical pain (the duration may vary from healer to healer and also receptivity of patient). Alternative Su Jok therapy is also found useful.

Understanding Your Back Pain


“Your Spine- A Marvel in Motion “

The central nervous system pours out from the spinal cord, and with it one feels pain. Pain is the most trustworthy sensation a human being can know because it teaches us what hurts. ― Joshua S. Porter, The Spinal Cord Perception

The ancient chakra system which is followed in many healing modalities, like accupuncture, accupressure, pranic healing and many other alternate healing therapies all the major energy centers (chakras) lie on the spine. Also according to the ancient teachings our spine is highly significant in our spiritual advancement. The Kundalini (Chi/ secret energy ) lies as potential energy at the base of the spine and the great saints/advance meditators are able to raise this energy through the chakras to explore/experience awakening.

Ok not to overwhelm 🙂 let us understand the day to day significance. Our spine is an amazing masterpiece creation by god but unfortunately due to our emotional imbalance and offcourse to add on the lifestyle , increasing stress and poor posture there are increasing number of back pain cases seen across the world. Back pain issues in >25 yrs age group is as common ailment as cough and cold and people are living with it till they are diagnosed with spondylitis, sciatica pain, slip disc,numbness in lower limbs or chances of paralysis.

Your spine is composed of 33 vertebrae stacked like building blocks inter layered with shock absorbing discs, no fewer than 641 back muscles and millions of nerve fibres allow you to stand up straight and allow you to twist and bend and remain still. It is a miracle we take for granted.

To simplify this I’m going to refer to these areas as lower, middle and upper back. What you are about to read is not to replace our medical treatment. It is to open up your mindset to the possible emotional connection that may be causing or amplifying your back pain. Our spine is our support system and represents the life support and problems with the back usually mean we feel we are not being supported. Now let us understand the emotions that affect the upper , middle and lower back issues.

The Upper Back (C1 -C7 cervical issues) has to do with feeling the lack of emotional support; feeling significant people in your life don’t understand you or support you. You may feel unloved or you may be holding back your love from someone. Upper back pain could also mean that you feel that somebody is always on your back.

By changing a belief that you are responsible for other people’s happiness, it can relieve pain in your upper back and neck. Do things for others from your heart, not from a place of feeling you have to do it or they won’t love you.Gaining love of yourself will not only increase your happiness – you will be supported from the inside first.

Middle Back Pain ( Thoracic T1 -T !2) emotionally speaking, pain in the middle back comes from feeling guilty about ‘stuff’ from the past. Perhaps you are afraid to explore your past? Maybe you are hiding what is back there? Do you feel stabbed in the back? Do you find yourself wanting to scream out, “Get off my back!”?

In order to move freely into your future, you need to release the past anger and guilt and embrace your present and future with love in your heart.

Lower Back Pain (Lumbar sacral and coccyx) with today’s financial hard times, are your finances in a mess? Do you worry about them excessively? The lack of money, fear of not having enough, or fear of material loss may be the cause of your lower back bothering you. The amount of money you have has nothing to do with it. It’s the fear of lack of financial support, the fear of your own survival that amplifies the pain.

Eliminating paralyzing guilt, clearing your past from anger and transforming your fear into personal power will help you gain control, well-being and find peace of mind you may long for in your life. Pranic Healing, EFT, Neuro Linguistic Programming and other alternate therapies are highly effective.

A back pain is just a symptom so treating it at a physical level is only a short term solution understand and working on the cause will help you lead a better life.
