Body, Disease and Emotional Issues

Article by Rinku Patel

Understanding what are the emotional blockages that cause problem to body parts and the root base of diseases.

Healing emotional baggage is the mantra to live healthy and happy life. The longer the emotional baggage is piled up, the severe the disease becomes. Diseases are the wake-up call for us to realize that enough is enough. Shed your emotional baggage. It is very important to know what emotional blockages are causing what disease. You can do aura scan or Byosen scan or any scanning technique you know to find out which chakra is out of balance and analyze the emotional blockage related to the chakra. Start healing your issues with Divine light of Reiki. Reiki helps and treats on physical, mental and emotional level. Reiki clears long-piled-up blockages and clears long built-up toxins from all levels, Emotional, Physical and Mental.

The front side of our body represents to social life, the part of you that you share with the world. Also represents love, happiness, sadness, desire and care.

The back side of our body represents private life. The part of you that is hidden from world. This side becomes a storeroom where all your hidden emotions accumulate. Unexpressed emotions piling up. It means negativity accumulating along your spine and legs.

The left side of the body represents feminine side.

The right side of the body represents masculine side.

  • Rubina Naim January 26, 2015, 1:19 pm

    Hi nice article but if emotional blockages are causing every disease so what about children.i think they have no emotional issues.

    • Divinity January 27, 2015, 12:46 am

      When we choose our life path before birth, some of those choices can include a disease or disability to help us learn along that chosen path. This can also be because of past life choices.
      These choices can also be not just for the child themself, but for those around them. For example, the love and loss of an ill baby can give the parents and family grief, however it can also help them learn to overcome enormous loss and become stronger. I hope this helps some in understanding what can feel very much like meaningless pain when your child is suffering. Peace be with you xx

  • Nivedita Jadhav January 26, 2015, 6:31 pm

  • Aileen April 14, 2015, 7:02 am

    Dear Rinku, how do you heal from the emotional pain of losing your child when they had to go through so much suffering? I think I may suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, because when anyone going through tests in my family since my daughters death, just brings so much anxiety. My daughter died on life support due to complications from a bone marrow transplant. I feel regret, guilt, sadness, a longing for things to be different. Hard to get past how she died. Thankyou

    • Reiki RN May 13, 2015, 8:50 pm


      I’m so sorry for your great loss. Losing a child is simply not the natural of things, and my heart goes out to you, dear one. There is nothing that can heal such a great loss. Only in time will it get easier, and I am speaking only from the experience of being close to someone who lost her only child and daughter nearly 10 years ago. It’s simply that no loss in Life is greater than that of losing a child.
      I’m sending you healing and Divine Reiki energy, dear Aileen, and prayers that you find solace in your faith and loved ones who surround you.
      Blessings, Light, and Love ~

  • Reiki RN May 13, 2015, 8:53 pm

    Dearest Rinku,

    I have seen similar charts as these from Louise Hay, world renowned author of “You Can Heal Your Life”

    I have an app that discloses not only the possible emotional causes of illness/pain, but also healing affirmations that can reverse and cure the conditions. Excellent post!

    Thank you for sharing.

    Light & Love to all.

    • Tina June 22, 2020, 12:22 pm

      Hi, Send me a mail pls, I will forward u the pdf…

  • Cathy June 3, 2015, 3:58 pm

    A very informative and useful post for those who want to research the effect of inner feelings. Attitude and emotions contribute so much to dis-ease, especially if held long-term. Debbie Shapiro’s book “Your Body Speaks Your Mind” is also a good addition to anyone who is interested in Mind Body Science. Thank you Rinku, for posting this invaluable information. x

  • Renee June 19, 2015, 11:59 pm

    What about Vasculitis?

  • Patricia July 1, 2015, 12:59 am

    Hello. That was very informative. Thank you very much. I was wondering what it ment when someone breaks their rib in a fall. Also if I can have that chat in pdf that would be great to look upon in the future.
    Much love

  • Mona July 13, 2015, 9:03 am

  • Tana July 19, 2015, 10:02 pm

    Would love to have this as a reefrence in PDF but also would like to know about Bell’s Palsy

    • Cathy July 20, 2015, 10:28 am

      Tana I read this on a website ; “According to the metaphysical literature, specifically according to Louse Hay, the root cause of Bell’s Palsy is about denying emotions. It is the manifestation of the extreme control over anger, and the unwillingness or inability to express that anger. So, when emotional release is denied, the anger appears as facial paralysis. ”

  • Sylvia Chin August 6, 2015, 12:53 pm

    Hi Rinku, I have just started level one and two Reiki Deploma online course and whilst i research emotional root cause of illnesses i came across your website, i was so impressed that you had covered so much definitions of rooted emotional problems.
    As i am new doing Reiki, i was wondering if you could let me know of any group in London i could attend to have contact with Reiki people.
    Keep up the good works.

  • Ana August 17, 2015, 1:10 am

    This info has been around forever but it’s a good reminder to have the chart. Unfortunately, it’s not really helpful unless you tell us specifically how to help certain conditions. A broad stroke advice like “give yourself Reiki,” is as obvious as it is useless. Reiki always goes to the highest good and you don’t need to know the information you provided, unless you expound on it. I wish you hadn’t stopped with half an article because I don’t know what to DO with the information provided, so it has no worth.

  • Anne August 25, 2015, 1:28 am

    Hi Rinku, I would like to download this chart, but each time I try, it says I’m already subscribed (which I am). Is it only available to those who haven’t subscribed yet? Great summary . . . with some issues I’ve never seen before. Thank you!

    • Anne August 25, 2015, 1:41 am

      Oops! My bad. I should have though to check my spam folder. All is well.

    • Rinku August 25, 2015, 2:02 am

      Send ur email id, I will send u PDF
