Wrist Problems

The whole idea for the community has actually been prompted by this ailment!

For the last few days I've been experiencing weakness and slight pain in my right wrist when applying pressure. Any weight leaned on this wrist makes it feel very sore and almost like it will sprain. This isnt' the first time I've had it, and it usually clears up, I am aware of the amount of time I spend on the computer and so on, so RSI has come to mind occasionally, but it's not ongoing, and I know I'm not feeling 100% lately, I know deep down this is a message for me to look at, like all ailments I undergo.

I'd be interested in hearing anyone's experiences or thoughts on wrist injuries or problems :)

So far this is what I've come up with from the Vital Affirmations website for wrist problems.

Not being flexible on an issue or situation. Not handling things with ease. Stubbornness.

Louise Hay states wrist problems are related to Movement and Ease.

The suggested affirmation is, "I handle all my experiences with wisdom, with love and with ease."

I have to concur a bit with this. The LAST time I had a wrist injury was last Christmas/New Years when I went to Perth to meet my partner's mother, and I spent 2 weeks listening to her put down her son and tell him he's useless and doesn't do anything and so on and so forth. Very distressing. The last few days I've been struggling with food and eating out and self-image. So there has been a lot of conflict (mostly internal) and definitely not flowing with ease.

I am feeling a distinct struggle at the moment, and I'm sure the ailment is related to mostly. The right hand being the hand that I receive from, it's very interesting that it's my right hand wrist which is feeling this way... leading to the idea that I am having trouble receiving things with ease at the moment, that I am being stubborn around how I want to receive certain things (instead of just letting myself receive as it shows up).

Wrist Problems
Hi,
I have had a problem with my left wrist sincy my son was born 11 months ago. It is interesting what you have said, i'm not sure but if the right hand is recieving, then would the left be for giving? perhaps i am having trouble giving something freely, and funny me and my partner have had such issues since our son was born lol

Butmy issues with his mother are the opposite of yours too, his adores him, and will try her best to bring me down if i mention anything bad about him. and he treats her like crap! go figure lol

anyway i think this is a good blog :)

Re: Wrist Problems
Hi there,

Thanks for your comments. It's been a long time since I've done much with this blog, but I'm thinking of getting back into it now! It's a timely reminder :)

Hands can be tricky because it can depend on what is your dominant hand. For myself I tend to receive with my right, and give with my left, however there are other things in place too.

Wrists in general can be a build-up of any excess energy that isn't leaving via the hands. Also left side of the body is feminine, so it could be related to sending energy from the feminine side of the body also.

Wrists are very supportive of us, and so very important when you have a baby! So I would be asking whether you have felt that there are any issues since you've had your baby come up in relation to how you are as a mother.

If you have an imposing mother-in-law then perhaps she is making you feel like you are not a capable mother in your own right? This might be causing a blockage in your wrist as you struggle to give to your son freely without judgment from others.

The left is also the intuitive side, so I feel as if there is an energy around you that is quite judgmental and this might be over-riding your natural mothering instinct and making you doubt yourself, and causing pain in your wrist so that you will look at it and address is.

I had a really rough birth when all was said and done, and have needed to have some osteopathic treatment since then to correct some of the changes that occured to my pelvis etc. You might like to investigate having an osteopath look at your wrist as there might be muscle/tendon damage, possibly as far back as when you were in labour???

I hope some of this helps, feel free to keep me posted on how things go :)

yep that totally makes sense, it took me ages to get confident with my son because i had so many people telling me i wasn't doing it right. Even recently on holidays with the parents in law i was changing a nappy when my partners mum leant over my shoulder and pointed out the bits i'd missed, when i had only just opened the nappy lol i felt like throwing it at her. but graciously i choose to stay away instead haha

I keep telling myself i am doing well as my son is strong and healthy, and i know i need to stop comparing myself to others.

Also perhaps his mum is so expert at raising children because she had seven and that is the only thing she has ever done, I on the other hand have chosen to live my life first and have so many interests i can't possibly be expert at any of them lol

I will practice giving more generously and see if that fixes up the slight remaining twinge in my wrist :)

I hope it helps a bit :)

I feel compelled to say that it's not always about you having to be always giving selflessly either. I feel that a lot of the energy stuck in your wrist is from self-doubt and feeling like you have to live up to someone else's standard of "mother", and that the energy will release when you let that standard go, and realise that they had their chance to raise their kids and now it's your turn :)

P.S. No one is a perfect mother ;) My Nana had 7 kids and pretty much all of them are screwed up in one way or another, they had a hard time growing up due to various circumstances and she was hard on them. And as "perfect" as my MIL thinks she raised her son, we're finding out that she was actually quite neglectful... so don't worry about their perfection, they no doubt have some skeletons hidden in the closet too :D
