Psoriasis manifests itself after a conflicting separation, whether or not to be in contact with something or someone, due to death, separation, transfer, dismissal, divorce, etc.
Loss of contact, as it also happens in the animal kingdom, is a very important conflict for the person who suffers from it.
Psoriasis appears when there are two simultaneous separation conflicts because of which I feel unprotected.
They will always be two different conflicts, but related.
Or, one of them is a consequence of the other. It always happens in the following way:
One of the conflicts, attacks me, that is, they force me to separate myself from something against my will.
The other conflict makes me live a painful separation and a new life.
One of those two emotional conflicts is latent, active, and present in my daily life because I have not been able to overcome it. I still suffer.
The other conflict, has ceased to exist, is in the healing phase. I lived it, I suffered it, but somehow I have overcome it, understood it, assimilated it and released it.
Example: A child whose parents separate, sells the house where they lived and move to live with her mother in a new house in another nearby town.
The first serious and painful conflict is the separation from his parents and from his home, where he felt protected.
The second, as a consequence of the previous one, is that he separates from his neighbors, from his friends, from his teacher, from his classmates.
And, furthermore, furthermore, he has to face a new conflict, a new experience in a new school, with a new teacher, with unknown classmates, with a new life, in another place.
Another example: a teenager moves to study in another country (physical separation) where they have other customs, another way of seeing life, which does not agree with what he feels (separation from him).
On the one hand, I find myself physically separated from my father, mother, family, and friends and, on the other hand, I am separated from myself, from my principles, from my identity.
In the same way, psoriasis can be caused if I, as a real or symbolic father, were not able to “protect” someone.
Example: a 10-year-old boy, whose father physically abuses his mother and develops this symptom when he was admitted to boarding school, he could no longer protect his mother from him.
Psoriasis warn me that I have stopped being in contact with something or someone because of an upset and that this separation has been very painful.
Psoriasis is like a dry shell that masks a secret desire to be loved and caressed.
Behind psoriasis the individual always hides a great fear of separating from what he loves, fear of changing direction, fear of living apart from what makes him feel protected.
“I feel attacked in this relationship, assaulted, hurt”, “I feel alone and I need protection”, “I have a need to protect myself”
What kind of protection? The traditional protective role is exercised by the father or the person who represents the paternal function, which in some cases may be the mother. I need you dad, I no longer feel protected, and therefore I protect myself only by increasing the thickness of my skin!
The need for parental protection can be demonstrated when the affected person is exposed to the sun’s rays, the improvement is evident.
Everyone knows that the Sun, for the collective unconscious, represents the father.
“The more I am in the sun, the more I am in contact with my protective symbolic father and, therefore, I feel protected”
Psoriasis usually manifests itself in hypersensitive individuals who need the love of others, but who, paradoxically, feel fear when faced with contact and protect themselves.
Consequently, they have the need to harden themselves, to get inside a shell that isolates them from the outside that protects them from injury, but also prevents access to affection, love and tenderness.
This person is left in a situation of emotional loneliness, and may even suffer an identity problem since she does not feel recognized for who she is.
It is difficult for him to accept who he is in this life.
That is why it gives the impression that he wants to renew his skin, because he does not feel good in it (conflict of separation from himself).
“I try to protect myself and the best way to do it is to separate from myself, to be someone else”
Recommendations to recover physical, emotional and spiritual health:
We must understand that any change implies a new beginning, a new opportunity to meet new environments, new people, new experiences that make us feel integrated, happy and protected.
We must feel capable of overcoming any obstacle and moving forward with safety and love.
