Nothing gets a person to pay attention to their body like the inability
to walk. For with every step you take (or cannot take), the pain gets
reinforced. Often, an inability to walk is the outer sign of a person's
inner inability to move forward in their life.
For example, one client
was in an extremely disempowering romantic relationship. Everyone told
this person that their partner was "no good for them" but the client,
insecure about their looks and their personal attractiveness, hung on.
The underlying reason for this clinging was not so much
insecurity about finding another partner but unconscious guilt over
how they treated this person in a past life. Once their guilt was gone,
so was their partner and their pain.
