These are two major events going on in her life right now and I don't mean to belittle her situation in any way, but I can't help but be completely fascinated by the correlation happening. The core stress in her life stems from the topic of children. This is what is ultimately ending her relationship. The theme of this energy is reproduction. So where and how does this negative emotion and energy manifest itself...her ovary! Is the cyst a vessel being created to house all this excess energy?
What is stress though? Stress is just a reaction, a response. It's intangible and it's different for everybody. In essence, it's energy. The energy of something, whether physical or mental is presented to us. We then react to this energy. If we become stressed by this energy then our physical body reacts accordingly through various biochemical responses.
I think it's essential to recognize and address what's causing your stress. If you remove the stress you remove the stress response. I also think it's important to recognize how the stress is manifesting itself. Physically? Emotionally? Psychologically? To truly heal, one needs to understand how the energy is playing out. Fortunately for my friend, the timing of her physical ailment and stressful life event are happening at the same time so the correlation is evident.
What if things weren't so clear though? What if it takes a while for that stressful energy to manifest in a recognizable way? Does the negativity surrounding the stress still remain even if the person, place, thing, or event which caused the stress goes away? Would you be able to make the correlation between the root cause of this energy and how it has manifested? Are you able to release or remove that energy so that it doesn't continue to negatively manifest itself?
