The spine, below the waist is connected to emotional security. The coccyx relates to security and how you fit into and belong to the group, family, tribe, culture or religion. The sacrum and lower lumbar are connected to how secure you feel in a one on one relationship, and the security you experience from material possessions, such as money.
When issues arise that are ignored, suppressed or projected to another, it is quite likely that a physical problem will manifest to gain your attention. Your body gives you messages and clues about what might be the cause of the problem. Energy and matter are interchangeable, so one would imagine that it is preferable to deal with something in the form of energy rather than have it change to something solid, to make a greater impact.
As part of the skeletal system, these lower vertebrae are associated with structure, form and support. Therefore, if the problem in the lower back is related to bone, you may need to consider a need to restructure a particular area of your life, increase or withdraw support to a specific person or group of people, or stand up for yourself and make your presence known.
A problem with the coccyx could be a message about the degree of support you are receiving from or giving to the family, group or tribe.
A fracture could be an indication that you need to break away from the family, group or tribe.
Calcification could be showing you that you are fortifying your position in these areas.
Osteoporosis in the lower spine could be reminding you that you are burnt out from expectations of the family, group or tribe.
A problem with the sacrum and lower lumbar area has a slightly different message.
A fracture could be an indication of a break down in a relationship.
Fractures in the sacrum and lower lumbar could be an indication that a relationship is breaking down, and an invitation to consider if power games are being played, and if the relationships needs to be restructured.
Calcification could be showing you that you are fortifying your position in a particular relationship.
Osteoporosis in this area could be reminding you that you are burnt out from expectations of a significant other.
The sacrum and lower lumbar also hold messages about finances and material security. Therefore, a bone problem here could be an indication about restructuring your finances, needing support with your finances or understanding how better to utilize your money.
There are also many nerves and muscles in this area of the back.
Nerve pain is related to communication. In the area around the coccyx, the communication is associated with the group, family or tribe. Nerve pain in the area around the sacrum or lower lumbar is related to communication about or within a one on one relationship or a need to communicate about money and security on the physical level.
The three gluteal muscles dominate the lower back and, are related to being pulled in two directions and divided loyalties.
Therefore, pain around the coccyx indicates a pull between you as an individual and the family, group or tribe, and whether your loyalties lay with what you want or what the family, group or tribe wants.
Muscle pain higher up the spine but below the waist line is connected to one on one relationships, and where your loyalties lay, and if you are being pulled in two directions. Are you being loyal to yourself, or conforming to what the other wants.
