What is the location of your headache trying to tell you???
At some point in our lives, we’ve all had a headache. For some of us, they are only a minor annoyance; for others, they are debilitating. I think that we can all agree that headaches can be a real S.O.B and we would rather not have them at all.
Headaches can be cause by a number of things such as:
When we look at the Mind Body Medicine connection for headaches, the location of headaches can tell us a lot about what is going on for the individual.
Behind the eyes & on top of the head
Headaches in these regions indicate an imbalance in the Liver meridian (wood element).
When the Liver meridian is in balance we have high self-esteem; can fully accept ourselves for who we are (not what we do); are flexible in our decisions, opinions, and movements; are moving forward and putting our plans into action
When the Liver meridian is imbalanced we may feel stuck, unable to move forward in life, frustrated, find it hard to accept ourselves; feel that other people only accept us for what we do – not who we are; have low self-esteem
Temples / Temporal Lobes
Headaches that occur around the temples / temporal lobes indicate an imbalance in the Gall Bladder meridian (wood element)
When the Gall Bladder meridian is in balance we know what is right for us; we are able to make the right choices for ourselves; have the courage to follow our true path
When the Gall Bladder meridian is imbalanced we may feel anger; rage; resentment; feel rejected and/or fear rejection; are indecisive; are judgemental of ourselves and others; have high expectations of ourselves and others
Forehead / Frontal Lobes
Headaches that occur in the forehead / frontal lobes indicate an imbalance in the Stomach meridian (earth element)
When the Stomach meridian is in balance we can empathise with others; are balanced in terms of giving and receiving; Are comfortable with our relationships
When the Stomach meridian is imbalanced we are prone to over-thinking; constant worrying about relationships and others; feel obligated to others; tend to give more than we receive
Back of the Head
Headaches that occur at the back of the head indicate an imbalance in the Bladder meridian (water element)
When the Bladder meridian is in balance we have a good work / life balance; feel safe & secure; are able to use our will in balanced ways
When the Bladder meridian is imbalanced we react to fear by either withdrawing from life or by trying to control every aspect of our lives to keep ourselves safe; may feel overly-driven and that we can never rest (always having to do, do, do)
So if you are on the receiving end of a headache/s (and I hope that you are not), it might be beneficial to start noting the location/s of the headache/s and see if the locations match anything that is going on in your life at that point in time.
