The most common behaviors of a parent, both mother, and father, are recorded in the child’s neural pathways as relationship clues. On their basis, the child begins to learn what to expect from other people in close relationships. Thanks to them, they will learn how other people react to their needs. And also decides whether to hide them or not. The child will understand whether other people will help them and make them feel better, or disappoint them, or even hurt them. They will influence all their relationships in adulthood.
In this article, you will learn how relationship problems with your parents or other people manifest in your body.
However, since these are schemas and knowledge hidden deep in your subconscious mind, you do not always have access to them. It’s hard for you to identify your own neural pathways and understand them. Consequently, you cannot understand why you behave the way you do in relationships with other people.
However, it is worth knowing that your psyche is connected with your body due to the vital energy flowing through the network of meridians. This energy allows all human physical, mental and spiritual aspects to function. It is used for the functioning of the organ and the psychological sphere associated with it. It is also a carrier of information, therefore your body stores information about your relationships with parents and other people, and all dysfunctions in these relationships are manifested in it through various types of ailments and diseases.
Therefore, learning the key to interpreting these ailments and carefully observing your body, especially the various types of symptoms or diseases that appear in your body, will help you discover how you really function in relationships. And also what should be changed or improved in them. Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all diagnosis. Remember that this must be your individual, intuitive interpretation based on certain dependencies on which Eastern medicine has been based for centuries.
Life energy is bipolar Yin (female) and Yang (male). The lower part of the human body is Yin, the upper part is Yang. The right side is Yin and the left side is Yang. The front of the body is Yin and the back is Yang. The inside of the body is Yin and the surface is Yang. The upper limb is Yin, the lower is Yang, etc. Each of these energies symbolizes your relationship with your mother, Yin, or your father, Yang, in the first place. On the lower levels, it shows relationships with other people or aspects related to the symbolism of the mother or father.
So when you have symptoms in your body that only occur on one side of your body, you should look at what is happening in your life at a given moment (or in the past, the deeper the symptom, the further past) in that area. You should start higher to lower. You interpret the inside of the body and its surface in a similar way, etc.
Relationships with parents and body.

|Level 2: woman, femininity, the structure of things or oneself, feeling||Level 2: the essence of things or yourself|

Relationships with parents and body.
Every part of your body has to do with some aspect of your life, with your relationship with yourself and other people. Therefore, by analyzing the ailments in individual parts of the body in accordance with the above scheme, you can understand what problem you have in relationships with others. Then fix it and your physical ailment should go away. For example, a pain in the left hip can symbolize a sense of betrayal by your father. The depth of this pain will tell you whether this betrayal is about present experience or past experience, etc.
