From a metaphysical perspective, anything to do with the nervous system is related to communication in some form or other. Where you find the nerve problem in the body indicates the type of things you need to communicate.
The sciatic nerve begins in the lower back, runs through the buttock and down the lower limb. As it is initially connected to the sacral chakra area of the body, it would primarily be associated with those issues. The energy of the sacral chakra is concerned with one on one relationships and physical security; as against how you fit into the group and emotional security of the base chakra. Therefore, it is quite common for power games and money worries to show up in this part of the body. Introducing the nervous system into the mix, draws attention to the importance of communicating how you feel about these issues.
Is there aggression of some description that you need to talk about
Do you need to address any power games that someone is playing, or are you the one playing the power games
Do you want changes within a relationship but are not able to talk about it
Are you able to say what you think, or do you say what another wants to hear
Do you avoid difficult subjects and hope they will go away
Are you able to express your needs as others can’t read your mind
Are you hearing the intended message or misunderstanding what is being said
Are you interpreting a situation through your own filters and bias
Are you worried about money
Has something arisen that challenges your financial security
Is someone not being honest regarding financial matters
Knowing a possible cause of your pain is one thing. Knowing what to do about it is another. If you approach life from the powerlessness of the victim, then you may not be able to do much in your situation. But, if you think of yourself as an empowered spiritual being, then you will take a different approach to what life deals you.
On some level of your consciousness you have invited, created or allowed every situation into your life. Don’t think of an aggressor as a person doing something to you. Think of them as doing something for you. They are pressing your buttons and bringing up issues because on some level of consciousness, you have given permission. You know it is time to deal with something in your life and the other person is bringing it to your attention. You have two choices, blame the other person or take a long look at yourself.
And remember; you attract your own issues. When I say that to people, some of them become quite angry, because they can recognize nothing of themselves in the other person. But, let me assure you, it is there. The reason you can’t see it is because you are concentrating on how the other person expresses the issue/s that you both share. You need to identify the issue, rather than look at its expression. For example, low self-esteem could be displayed as aggression in one person and timidity in another. The two people are opposites, but they share a common issue – lack of self-esteem. The challenge for you is to identify what you hold in common with someone who wants to play power games.
The next time someone does something to you that presses your buttons, think to yourself….. They are doing something for me; not to me. They are helping to bring to my attention something that I need to address at this time. You can wallow in negative emotions for as long as you choose, or move through them to find a stronger, more positive self.
