Today I will talk about the spiritual meaning of spine pain and some spiritual causes of this pain.
Are you experiencing a new bout of spine pain? Perhaps you’ve been suffering with it for a while and have, quite frankly, had enough of it all.
Either way and whatever the reason, there might be a different reason why you’re suffering from spine pain other than old age, a medical condition, or sleeping funny.
There are several spiritual meanings of spine pain, so let’s take a look.
Spiritual Meaning of Spine Pain: Overview
Spine pain is linked to several spiritual meanings depending on your situation, thoughts, emotions, overall feel of the symbol, and much more.
A lot of things in spirituality comes down to personal reflection and understanding, and pain is no different.
A few links this type of pain has include:
- Feeling out of place;
- Increased mental health issues;
- General low mood;
- Decreased self-confidence and self-belief.
What Emotion Manifests as Back Pain?
Mental health issues are one of the common meanings of back pain, especially:
- Or a combination of one or more.
It is wise to keep your eye on the state of your mental health when suffering from spinal pain and other issues.
Which Chakra is Associated with Back Pain?
All seven chakras run along the spine, so location of the pain will play a big part in the chakra to pay attention to.
The base of the spine is home to the Root chakra, which is also known in Sanskrit as Muladhara.
This is the primary and first chakra and is usually the one first thought of when talking about back or spinal issues.
Spiritual Meaning of Spine Pain: 7 Hidden Meanings Behind Your Pain
In order to decipher the spiritual message of your physical spine pain, I personally recommend jotting down all the things that seem relevant.
- Position of pain (top of spine, middle, base, etc).
- Type of pain (sharper pain usually means a more urgent message).
- Current and past life situations.
- How you feel and think about the message and symbol (pain).
- What else your back pain is linked to (such as a slipped disc).
You can then come back to the notes when you have a thought or brainwave, and it’ll help you piece together smaller parts of a much larger message.
1) Increased Stress, Anxiety, and Depression
Stress, anxiety, and depression very often come with physical pain as a symptom, and back pain is particularly associated with those three mental health issues.
The pain could also be a result of an overload of the system. Your soul and spirit are tired, so now your mind and body are tired, too.
Reducing the amount of stress, you have in your life isn’t easy, but you can do things to manage stress levels, which in turn can reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Meditation and yoga ere highly recommended, and I also recommend using healing crystals, listening to your favorite kind of soft-vibes music, and spending some time in nature. Even a walk in the park will do!
2) No Support System
Either you have no support system at all, or you don’t feel as though you are being supported by those who claim to love you.
There’s nothing wrong with feeling that way. If you need support, you need support – no one can tell you that you don’t.
The question you need to ask yourself is this: do those people know that you need support or assistance?
Although it’s not always the case, it’s quite possible that people are completely unaware that you need support, help, or anything else.
We’re all quite wrapped up in our own little lives, so it’s not entirely impossible that they just haven’t realized – not because they don’t love you, but because they are busy and have life crises of their own.
If you need help, ask for it. It really is as simple as that.
3) Not Quite Fitting in with Family or Friends
Feeling pain at the very bottom of your spine is an indication that things are not peachy in how you feel about your place in life.
You might feel like you don’t quite fit in with the other members of your family, or you don’t have anything in common with the rest of your friendship group.
This kind of pain can also point in the direction of imposter syndrome.
As someone who regularly experiences imposter syndrome at work, despite being in the business for almost twenty years, I absolutely understand feeling like you don’t belong.
Chances are, though, you’re just being paranoid. (I’m saying that in the nicest way, I promise.)
Perhaps it’s time to leave those doubts behind? If you didn’t quite fit in, you wouldn’t still be there. I’d like to bet that the only person having those thoughts is you.
4) Years of Buried and Unprocessed Emotions
If you’re the kind of person who carries a lot of stress in the back and/or spine, that’s where all of your buried and unprocessed emotions are going to be.
The sharper the pain, the more urgent the need to process… or the more emotions you have tucked away in there.
This situation is often the case if your parents were emotional hiders.
You probably picked up the trait from them. It’s not easy, but going through those buried emotions, processing them, and then moving on really is the best way to deal with this issue.
5) Financial Difficulties
Without your spine, you wouldn’t get far – and the same applies to money, too. It makes the world go around, after all.
Experiencing pain in the spine, therefore, could be related to financial difficulties you’re having in your life right now. It could also apply to financial difficulties in your future.
It’s probably for the best that you set up a rainy day fund… just in case.
6) Difficult Relationships with Family Members
Holding the pain of family disappointment and other similar issues can often bring spine pain.
It suggests that you’ve gone the opposite direction than the one planned for you, either in terms of lifestyle, job, religion, belief system, or any other aspect.
You must travel along your own path in life.
You might disappoint your parents, but is that better or worse than disappointing yourself and always wondering what if?
7) Not Where You Want to Be in Life
There’s a spiritual connection between your back or spine and the ‘backbone’ of your life, which is essentially a roof over your head, food in the fridge, a car to drive around, etc.
It’s not so much a status symbol situation, but more of a settled and stable situation.
Someone with a job, car, home, food, and clothes has considerably more stability than someone who’s living rough on the streets, with no home or job.
You might not be where you want to be in life, but you still have things to be thankful for, right? Remember to be thankful for them every once in a whole.
Gratitude and positive thinking will get you a long way in life. Start there and you’ll have a much better run of things.
As always, please seek medical advice for a medical issue. It might be easily treated, which means you’ll be back on your merry way in no time.
It’s always smart to take a look and see if the Universe or your angels are trying to send you a message in the way of pain, though – especially when physiological issues are believed to have a spiritual starting point.
