Spiritual Meaning of Foot Pain (Knees + Ankles) and Healing

It is essential to understand that with every ailment and disease out there, there is also a spiritual meaning of illness.

Specifically, illness is created within our physical body when we are resisting changes or issues within our lives.

Foot pain – spiritual meaning and healing

Your feet are the foundation for your life and your body. With the help of our legs, we stride towards the future. Also, our feet represent our connection with Mother Earth.

All types of foot pain are the result of pushing too hard, too often and too fast in all things: mental, emotional, and physical.

When your feet hurt, your soul is aching for a different foundation and different way for stepping out into the world or not stepping out. Basically, foot pain is the hallmark of our current rush culture.

Moreover, when we feel stuck in a situation or feel afraid of the future (start living in the present!), we can develop problems with our legs; this is our subconscious preventing us from moving forward.

Make a decision to resolve this issue and stick with it. Once your attitude changes and you start to move forward, the problem with your legs will disappear.

Knee pain – spiritual meaning

The knee is the articulation point of the leg, responsible for flexibility and mobility. Knees represent pride. Pride or ego keeps us from surrendering to the will of the Supreme Consciousness.

An inflamed knee indicates someone or something is making you feel angry or irritated, and you will not give in.

Water in the knee indicates a holding of emotional energy, especially a resistance to surrender, or there may be too much emotion to cope with and the weight is being carried in the knees.

Long-term knee-stress would indicate a need for greater attention on the Self, and less on ”duties” that are obviously stress-producing for you.

Ankle pain – spiritual meaning

Ankles represent flexibility, which is crucial as one navigates the twists and turns of life. Stiff, painful ankles are a sign that change is difficult for you.

Healing affirmations for foot pain
