"When the chiropractor adjusts my neck, I get waves of fear or anger for up to 20 hours"

In November, I started seeing a chiropractor. When she attempts to adjust my neck, or uses traction to do so, I end up with waves of either fear or anger for up to 20 hours afterward. I don't know where it's coming from. Any insights you may have would be helpful.


Hi - What I am getting is that this fear comes from somthing that happened in a past life, involving a sibling... one way to access this would be to do a shamanic journey. Hypnotism can also work, but I personally prefer to do a journey where I am under my own power, so to speak.

You can do this on your own. Here is the information:

You will need a CD or cassette of drumming that is especially made for shamanic journeys. This can be ordered from Foundation for Shamanic Studies. The cassette tape is 30 minutes on each side so you'd need an auto-reverse player for continuous playback. Ideally, get the CD version and program the tracks onto a portable MP3 player. Using a head set is good, as it makes the experience more immediate and powerful. When it is time to return from your journey, the drumming will speed up, so only have that speeded up part at the very end of the session. If it is still light outside when you do this journey, you may want to close the curtains or put a cloth over your eyes to make it darker.

Get comfortable in a quiet place where you won't be disturbed for at least 40 minutes. Light a candle, and then do some slow, deep breathing to fully relax. As with doing any sacred ceremony, you may want to set up a protection around yourself and state an intention that only that energy which is your true Spirit of Unconditional Love and Life Force energy be with you and given to you. It would be good also to set up a cocoon of white light around yourself before you begin which puts this in place also. You can ask for guidance and protection from Great Spirit, the Creator, God, etc. That way you are very clear what your intention is and what you will only allow into your space. Lighting white candles is a good idea as they represent light and purity.

When you are fully relaxed, imagine that you are walking along a path that leads to a special place that you have actually seen before, a place that leads into the earth. This can be a cave, a hole in the ground, a hole in a tree, a rock overhang, etc. As you imagine walking along this path, use your imaginary senses to really be there - smell the air, feel the ground underneath your feet, notice the colors and sounds around you, feel the air against your skin. Take it all in. When you get to that place which leads into the earth, which is for you alone and no one else, enter into it, again using all your senses to explore the area for a bit. Feel if the walls are smooth or rough, wet or dry - if the air is cooler, etc.

Then, you will notice that there is a long tunnel leading down into the earth from this entranceway. Follow it down deeper and deeper into the earth. Allow the journey to take you as it will. Release any need to control it. Let happens what happens and just stay present with the experience. While you follow this tunnel deeper into the earth, hold in your mind and heart the intention that this journey is for you to connect to your power animal, your medicine ally. That is what you are there for. Eventually, you will notice that the tunnel ends at another entranceway. This entranceway leads you into the world of the Animal Spirits. This world is consists only of a world of nature. Natural landscapes are everywhere. There are animals everywhere - in the trees, grasses, by the rivers, on the mountains, etc. Notice what it looks like, what the landscape is like where you have arrived into this world.

Leave the tunnel and begin to walk out into this world. Again, use all your senses as you explore this world. Notice what time of day or night it is, what's around you, the sounds and colors, the smells, the feeling of the air against your skin, how the earth feels under your feet, etc. Walk in this world taking it all in, holding your intention to meet your medicine ally, until an animal approaches you. When it does, ask it if it is your power animal. If it says yes, you may then journey on with it, learning about it, sharing with it, bonding with it, and asking for any help or guidance or answers you may need. If it says no, it is not your ally, continue walking until you meet the right one. Ask about this specific issue you want some insight and answers to, and also how you can heal and release the trauma completely, at the CORE level of your being.

When it is time to leave this spirit world, ask your power animal for a gift, and give it a gift in return. Ask how you can call upon it when you need to, and ask also if you need to keep what it is and what it shares with you private. When it is time to go, say goodbye, and thank you. Then, return to the tunnel and walk back up out of the passageway until you return to the entrance where you entered into the earth. Walk back along your path, and return to the room where you are visioning from. Take some time to fully come back into your body, bringing ALL of yourself back, filling up all of your body with yourself, all the way to finger tips and toes and eyelashes. If you choose to, you can write in a journal about what you learned and what guidance you were given. Take some time to integrate this experience. Don't go out into the world too fast or try to do too much afterwards. Drink water, and remember to blow out the candles!

Also, I am getting that having some Touch for Health sessions would be really good for you to help with this process. A minimum of 2 - more if you feel they are needed. You can look up Touch for Health on the Internet for a practitioner near you. These sessions are very gentle, yet profound.

Blessings, Ayal
