It is simply a wonderful method of inquiry that consists in bringing out the subconscious meaning of words, actions and imaginative productions, whether they are dreams, fantasies, desires and even fantasies of a person (theme).
The brilliant and effective theory developed by Freud proved that people with a sick mind are those who never let go of their feelings.
“What is not spoken becomes a show…” (Freud)
According to him, people had the ability to shut themselves off in this way and these feelings within their minds, and after some time they went into physical numbness and some forgot their existence in deep depression and suicidal thoughts. It continues to this day.
What does not become a word becomes a disease.
What we do not ask and think about within us sickens the soul and body.
You probably know a person with several physical complaints, present in different organs of the body, such as pain, diarrhea, tremors, shortness of breath, allergies … that justify such symptoms. This person may have a psychosomatic illness, also called somatization disorder, which is common in anxious and depressed people.
The word “psychosomatic” in Greek means “soul” (psyche) and “body” (soma), hence: a disease that originates in the “soul” or “mind” and ends up appearing in our body. The power of strong emotions, pent-up feelings and negative thoughts is able to bring any living being into disharmony and instability.
To be able to determine the origin of psychosomatic diseases, it is necessary to consider the life history of the person and family, knowledge of traumas and unresolved issues, self-criticism, self-demand, depression, anxiety, phobias and aggression.
Among these causes, the following somatization can be listed: the digestive system, the respiratory system, the reproductive system, the locomotor system, and the nervous system.
The moment we suppress our emotions, they are stored somewhere in the subconscious and “overflow” into a more vulnerable organ or system. When we only deal with the physical aspect and do not treat the cause, there is a high probability that this problem will recur. Usually the reason lies in the soul.
