    Default Metaphysics of the Female Reproductive System - It's Long

    Hi girls
    I just found a website for a centre in Balmain, Sydney which aims to 'tune, refine and harmonise the mind, body and spirit' and which 'specialises in acute and chronic illnesses' as well as 'guiding and supporting towards balance and health'. Sounds pretty good so far...
    The actual reason I'm posting is they had an article on the Metaphysics of Specific Disease Conditions.
    Here is what it says about the Female Reproductive System. While I don't think that these beliefs can be the sole reason for infertility, elements of it may ring true for some. Particularly those, like me, diagnosed with 'unexplained infertility'.
    Warning: this may be a tad 'out there' for some of you, so don't read it if you don't have an open mind about holistic healing

    'G: female reproductive system

    UTERUS (Home of creativity, symbol of womanhood & femininity): Anger at the self. Hatred of the body & of the feminine side. Self righteous & dogmatic thinking, critical of others. How you feel about being a woman, or about having or not having children. Do you live up to the image your mother instilled in you? Do you find femininity over burdening & hard to deal with?



    FIBROSIS (Benign tumours found in the uterus): A soft tissue lump indicates thoughts & attitudes that have been suppressed for so long that they have taken a solid form. Issues relating to femininity, sexuality, motherhood. Unexpressed guilt, shame or history of abuse. Unwilling to let go of sexual inhibitions. Since the uterus is where a woman nurtures new life, there may be conflicts about nurturing, for example, giving to others while feeling unnourished yourself. A desire to keep everything the same by blocking your creative forces.

    PREMENSTRUAL TENSION: Resentment towards having a menstrual cycle when having to work or resentment towards work. Struggling to prove yourself as a woman, would rather be a man. Resenting monthly reminder of being feminine. Finding it hard to flow with nature, preferring to be in control & dominate instead of submitting. Guilt, shame, lack of love for the self. Would rather not have a menstrual cycle or would rather not be working.

    MENSTRUAL PROBLEMS (painful menstruation, irregular cycles, cramps, increased & heavy menstrual flow, amenorrhoea, continual menstruation): Desire to get pregnant or a fear of parenthood. An inability to surrender to the body's natural rhythms & flow, therefore, creating a blockage behind which your feelings gather. Confusion about your role as a woman. or resentment towards men. Competing against others for another person's love. Not loving yourself, & not realising that all the love you need is inside you. Rejection of one's feminine side.

    ENDOMETRIOSIS/OVARIAN CYSTS (create menstrual problems & hinder pregnancy): Deep conflict of being fulfilled as a woman or expressing your femininity, or wanting to be a mother or not. Resenting the children you already have. Your femininity has been repressed or abused. You perceive that your partner is rejecting you. Repressing your sexuality. Inner conflict with creating and finding your own path.

    THRUSH (Yeast-like organism which infects warm damp areas): The yeast is kept in check by the acid/alkaline balance in the vagina, but if balance is upset due to emotional causes or because of antibiotics killing the natural flora, the the yeast flourishes causing a white, foul smelling discharge. The discharge indicates discharging unacceptable feelings. An infection implies that something is irritating you and making you angry, such as having to be intimate, or being intimate with the wrong person. Feeling sexually abused or exploited. Feelings of guilt, shame or repressed sexual feelings.

    INFERTILITY: A woman's unwillingness to be like her mother. Unwillingness to go through what her mother went through. Shutting down of feminine side. Unresolved childhood abuse creating an unconscious fear of having a child. Fear the responsibility, or feeling inadequate, unable to cope, especially financially. Believing that having a child is the only way life will have any meaning for you.

    MENOPAUSE: Fearing the purpose of your existence since your role as a mother has diminished. Fear of the ageing process and of inevitable change taking place, and that you are no longer in control of your body. Menopause is a stopping of blood flow and may mean you have stopped loving yourself, as if your feelings are drying up inside.Hot flushes may indicate the fire of anger or fear, and so the body is burning the past releasing all the old ways.'

    As I said at the start, I certainly don't believe all of this - especially the part that says one of the causes of PMT may be 'wanting to be a man' :shock:

    omg.
    Thanks for the post sue.

    Even though I dont relate with all that was in the artical, I certainly do realte to the infertility one.

    I so do not want to be like my mother at all. She is always worse, sicker ect than anyone else. Without making it into a vent, I just am so unwilling to be like her. I know she has had many hang ups from her own mother. And I have had many hangs ups from her. I honestly pray I will never do that to my child. ( if I ever get to have one!) Though saying that. I do love her very much, and I know without a dout in my heart that she did the best job that she knew how to do. And that is all I can ask as a daughter.

    Just thought I would share that with you!!

    Hi Vicki
    I'm glad you were able to identify with something in there. It can be a little scary when we read something that sounds as though it was written about us!
    Thanks for sharing, I think there is more than one woman in the world who feels exactly as you do. For me, I can definitely relate to the thrush one. I had monthly attacks for about four years before I summoned up the strength to leave my ex. During that time I changed my diet - did everything possible to get rid of it. That was five years ago and I've only had a handful of attacks since (through overindulging in the wrong foods)
    I know none of what is written is a cure but at least it's food for thought - as if there isn't already enough to think about :-k

    That part could not be any more on the money for me!! A woman I despise and do my damndest to be the complete opposite of. Unfortunately though, dont think that is something I can change - so if that is the cause of it all - perhaps I am up the creek without a paddle (or a boat for that matter!!)

    I have to admit the Fibrosis one is also close to home for me. I have issues from my distant past relating to not trusting men - and although not being physically scarred - certainly there has been plenty of mental scarring and I'm still very distrusting and cynical of men today. As well as explaing the fibroids I guess it also explains why I'm 37 and still single too! LOL!

    Not to mention that everyone comes and leans on my shoulders but I really don't have anyone to do that with when I'm down or struggling (except here at BB!). So that relates to the nurturing comment too. Even the blocking of creative forces rings true! Gee! I think I'm a lost cause!!!!!! :?

    Actually I've been seeing a Kinesiologist recently - and although I was very cynical to start with I think she has been fantastic for me, as the same issues came up with my chats with her as well.

    Interesting stuff!

    #-o Geez, I didn't want anyone to feel bad 8-[
    Maybe you could focus on a favourite aunty, teacher, grandma or neighbour who was more of a mother figure Keen. Or just keep telling yourself you will not be anything like your own mother when you have your kids. I know a certain mod who has mother isyoooos - and we both know what she did on easter Sunday...
    Pretty freaky about the fibroids stuff Marg. Have to fess up to not reading that one I've heard a lot of good stuff about kinesiology for clearing 'blockages' - good luck!

    I found it really interesting how we all can relate it some part of it!

    I told DH last night. He told me to start wanting to be a mother like my mother. He said it works for my sister I said I rather never be a mother than do go there! he said, no once the baby is born you can go back thinking like you!!

    I had to laugh, and laugh.

    Hi everyone
    I thought I'd come in and say - the piece is not working for me... I love my mum and am like her and don't have any problems with it. So there goes that theory or does the exception prove the rule Although, the last bit :
    Believing that having a child is the only way life will have any meaning for you.
    is probably something that I try to squish out of existence on a rational level but keeps popping back in my darker hours.

    Spot on Kar.
    Unfortunately, we can control rational but not our heart!
    You'll get there.
