Carpal tunnel syndrome, emotional and spiritual meaning

There is a space in the wristcalled the “carpal tunnel” where the median nerve and nine tendons pass from the forearm to the hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when there is increased pressure in this tunnel due to swelling, and that pressure is transmitted to the nerve.

When the pressure due to inflammation increases enough to disturb the way the nerve works, numbness, tingling, cramps, atrophy of some muscles, and pain is experienced in the hand and fingers.

The wrist is symbolically associated with work, with the control of order at work, with a devaluation and indecision in action with respect to work.
If I have discomfort, he warns me about a job that I don’t want to do:
“I don’t want to continue doing this job, because I don’t like it and because I’m bored of always doing the same thing”,
“I’m tired of having to hold, press, carry something, every day, in my work and above my boss pressures me and gives me deadlines to finish it”.
What do I do daily and with which I no longer enjoy, but because of my pride or my perfectionist character I continue to do it even if I don’t like it?

He also tells me that I constantly devalue myself.

“I’m not good enough to find a better job” “I’m going to have a problem because I didn’t do it well”
Or, on the contrary, he tells me I am excessively suspicious and careful to keep track of order at work. “I want to have the reins”
The head creates the ideas and the hands manifest them, therefore a syndrome that prevents the movement of the hand will have to do with not wanting to execute what we have in mind.
It also indicates that I am inconsistent in my actions.
“I am thinking of something and the hand does not want to do it”, “What I think, I don’t”, “I have a particular conflict, and above all I don’t want to see it or I don’t want to act to solve it (or I can’t)”
If muscle atrophy appears, it may be to not carry out the action of hitting someone.
Perhaps, because there has been a fight and I have not been able to defend myself or, unconsciously, I repress my desire to “hit” someone because I am afraid.
Or because the person I wanted to hit is an authority, parent, boss, etc.
Or, it may be someone for whom I have a great affection or respect and therefore hold back.

On the other hand, it can show me my difficulty not being able to separate someone, to avoid a fight between acquaintances. “I cannot reconcile the two parties”

Or, perhaps, it alerts me to my tendency to want to deny my negative situations.
The negative does not exist, everything is fine. “I have a conflict and I cannot act ordo not want to act to solve it
We must take into account the meaning of the hand related to the “father” (real or symbolic), and the ligament associated with future projects.

    Thanks for you wonderful insights. I use my intuition to figure out what my body is reflecting to me. Your website really helps me to narrow it down and get specific. Once i have the awareness I can release it. Thank you so much for your work x
