Neck and Shoulder Pain – Spiritual Healing

May 28, 2012 at 8:14 am 37 comments

As I growth deeper in spiritually, I became more conscious about physical illness that relate to spiritual own being. It doesn’t matter how you want to see yourself as:- a spiritual being in human body and experience chemical process or a human who have a soul tied together in this life. Either way, being a human will connect us to the chemical experiences. And either way, soul comes together as part of the being human. Hence, illness, a chemical changed or imbalance would directly connected to our higher being too.

Today, I would love to share my experience in healing a person who has neck and shoulder pain and the meaning of these pains spiritually.

What is Neck and Shoulder Means Spiritually?

As we all know that shoulder carry responsibilities. We see this mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Try carrying something with your hands and walk around, where would you put the weight that you carry so you don’t feel so heavy carrying it? Many people would place it on their shoulder.

How about neck? Physically neck is use to change view from one point to another, from right to left, from bottom to up, north to south and east to west. Spiritually, neck is use for same purpose too. At the higher level of our being, neck would be used to change view from a point of life to another point of life.

When I performed Reiki healing on the person, who was having neck and shoulder pain on her left side, I could feel the blockage in her energy flow. I took a moment to feel the person emotionally. A sudden heaviness and imbalance can be felt on my left side. After few questions and answers sessions between us, these were the finding:

  • Most Neck and Shoulder Pains Are Related to Job Stress and The Disability to Detach from The Unnecessary Weight and Burden

    Most Neck and Shoulder Pains Are Related to Job Stress and The Disability to Detach from The Unnecessary Weight and Burden

    The shoulder pain was related to the job related stress. Consciously she was stress free but not subconsciously. It was the subconscious mind that brought the pain to the surface.

  • Her career path has changed but she hasn’t, subconsciously. This act of unacceptability and less love towards her job made she thinks that this job is not meant to be hers. So whatever weight that comes together with the job need to be carried unwillingly on her shoulder too.  The heaviness leads to the physical shoulder pain.
  • The neck pain was about her not being able to see the excitements of the job that lies in another point of view.
  • Flow of energy was stuck on her left side can be related to the function of her right brain too. The finding was she seldom connects directly to her feeling and beliefs. She allow it to ‘just be’, which is good but it were left untreated. The accumulation of untreated feelings and beliefs will lead to additional burden to the emotional being.

The Healing

So upon the healing, I brought up the stress to the surface and I asked her to let it go and detach from it (It takes understanding and willingness to perform detachment. How fast the detachment process is based on the person willingness to let it go from her mind and emotion). When she detached from her stress, the energy started to flow easily on her and I felt the balance on her emotion too.

After 2 days (about 3 sessions of healing), she healed. A little pain was still left on her neck and it will heal when she’s ready to look at her job from different point of view and start to allow love and enjoyment to flow through her.


Affirmation was given as a tool for better creation in life. I wrote specific affirmations for her at the level of healing so she could allow certain energies flow without blockage, helping her change perspectives in her career and connect her emotion directly to her life.

“I am allowing love and joyous energy flow through me with freedom. Abundance is now appears in every creation of my life and I am peaceful with life now. And so it is. Thank you”

    Hi just wanted to say oh boy am i feeling this pain right now ,neck and shoulder like its out! ive just had all these job stresses identical to this story i will try with the affirmation thanks

    • 2. Your Personal Motivator  |  October 31, 2012 at 1:53 pm

      Hi Judy,
      Thank you for your post. You may try the affirmation. Work related stress is unavoidable but how and where you channel the energy (of stress) is a choice. One of the best way to channel it is exercise (yoga or walk in the nature). When you do that, imagine the things you been carrying on no longer stay on your shoulder. If you can’t feel anything, try it for another few times.

      Keep us posted on the result. Wish you well. Love and lights to you.

    nice article……….ya i also feel too much shoulder and neck pain during deep meditation……..especially during the activation of heart chakra………… from raheel

  • 4. pratishtha  |  April 4, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Hi, I have severe neck, shoulder and upper back pain. you did mention the reason for neck and shoulder pain. please shed some light on upper back pain as well. thanks

    • 5. Your Personal Motivator  |  May 10, 2013 at 4:41 am

      Hi pratishtha,
      My apology that I have overlooked your comment. Upper back is closely related to heart chakra and solar plexus. Normally it is closely related to your emotion pain body. Feelings that no longer serve you but it is still stay inside you will bring the pain to the surface.
      Maybe you might want to check out what you are feeling recently and during the pain occur. I hope this help.

      Sending you love,

    this is an insightful diagnosis and healing affirmation. however, the author’s poor grammar and syntax take away from the quality of the post and make certain parts hard to understand. i suggest finding a proofreader for future posts.

    Thank you for your explanation of should neck pain. It has helped tremendously!

  • 13. rootsandwings3  |  August 5, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    Absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much. Do you do reiki by skype also?

    • 14. Your Personal Motivator  |  September 9, 2014 at 7:03 am

      Hello beautiful soul rootsandwings3,
      Yes I do reiki via skype before. However, Skype access in the place I currently stay is not very good. We can try but I cannot promise if skype video would work. However, the distance reiki healing can be done without skype.

      Have a nice day to you.

      Love and light,
      Rose Osman.

    Hello Rose,

    I found you with a google search for “spiritual meaning of pain between shoulder blades”. Your article might have been written just for me! I have recently switched over from a very stressful job into self-employment, which initially brought me great relief, joy, and freedom. But now three months have passed, I am not bringing in significant income, and I am questioning how much longer I can follow this path. At the same time, I know that I am meant to do healing work and I have much to offer, yet cannot find a way to share it with the world. This situation is bringing up old fears. i am afraid that I have traded one form of work stress for anther and don’t see the answers yet. I will use the affirmations you suggest, when I am writing and meditating. And your idea about physical movement makes sense, too, so I will be more mindful of that. Do you do distance Reiki treatments? I am a Reiki practitioner also. Would you be interested in a trade, perhaps? Please don’t worry about your sentence structure. Critical comments such as the one above often come from people whose fear leads them to think that everyone should speak English. You are not difficult to understand.

    With gratitude and blessings…


    • 16. Your Personal Motivator  |  September 9, 2014 at 6:59 am

      Hello Beverly,
      Thank you for your beautiful feedback. I hope that the affirmation unfold the potentials that you are looking for. Yes I do service trade as well. You can reach me via my email. Looking forward to hear from you.

      Love and light,
      Rose Osman.

    HI there, I’m experiencing and have been for a due months now. Pain in my right side… collar bone, shoulder,
    front and back, arm pit, and upper arm and forearm. It is usually the reason I wake up in the morning. What am I missing?

    • 19. Your Personal Motivator  |  December 1, 2014 at 2:44 pm

      Hi Scott. I don’t feel any energetic burden that related to the pain you felt. Have you check with your doctor?

    Thank you. Recently I have been trying to change my focus from concern about money and my financial well-being to focusing on being happy, stepping into the vortex and allowing abundance to flow to me. As I have been practicing this for several weeks now, I’ve recently developed a strong discomfort in my neck and left shoulder. So this makes absolute perfect sense. Thank you. Andrea

    • 22. Your Personal Motivator  |  December 1, 2014 at 2:40 pm

      Thank you too Andrea. Any decision that you need to make involving money? Release that first and see if this help. Wish you great journey of love and abundance.

    Thank you so much Rose! Just reading your words helped me let go of my pain. I also have issues of looking at my work from different perspectives. I think of my job as a burden at times but it is a blessing. I need to be more grateful! My job was handed to me by my husband, as a gift. I need to see it as a gift with freedom to follow my other passions to fulfil my purpose. Love and light to you Rose.

  • 26. Tara  |  May 5, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    Hello My name is Tara and I would just like to share with you that I don’t believe in Reiki anymore. before I thought it was grand to get this treatment but I came across some information that is very important for people, Reiki, Reflexology and crystals are New Age therapies and the energy is something else but its not god. I know this from a book I read

    how many times have you felt healed after reiki ask yourself?
    I didn’t know all this either as its so widespread and popular.

    • 27. Your Personal Motivator  |  May 6, 2015 at 3:12 am

      Hi Tara, thank you so much for the comment and for bringing up this topic.

      I heard about reiki and crystals like years ago. At one point, I stopped reiki for nearly 6 months. Then I questioned myself, if reiki wasn’t good, why God show me the path. So I brought this question to my dear friend and mentor, Dr. Cha~zay. She have a great view on reiki (she also agreed that reiki and crystals have been used by another side for certain purposes, which you can read in her forum called

      She said something like this; “that Reiki is a doors opening for energy to take shift in my body and for many others”. If it’s not reiki, it would be something else but in my case, reiki. Having said that, reiki helped to strengthen my healing muscles, prepare my body and system for my healing journey.

      And then, it stop. The effectiveness of reiki (as in using symbols) somehow reduced. This is a sign that reiki (that use symbols) is just a door or a bridge.

      After the door, what’s next? Reiki itself means energy. It is in all of us, our own inner energy can be used in healing. We somehow didn’t tap into our inner energy. What we do, we used symbols to channel outside energies. This is the part where the energies can be hijacked for darker purpose (that is why protection before any healing is important).

      I stopped using symbols for reiki. Instead I practise use as in my own inner energy to heal myself and clients. I believe that the inner energy we have in us, the effectiveness is based on our level of consciousness. If we always in a state of love, what flows out from our core is love and that is already a healing.

      So I agree with you. I don’t feel reiki with symbols as effective as before. And using my own inner energy is more effective nowadays.

      To others who read this, if you feel wrong to use reiki, then by all mean, stop. Use your inner guides. I didn’t update this in my blog because I didn’t write about healing for a year and I’m in the process branding the coaching business. And I also still practise healing using others healing modalities.

      Thank you again.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    i experience a pain on my right shoulder sometimes. This happens when somebody is constantly watching me , or somebody from behind talking ill about me, or while i am walking and i know there is dead end so my shoulder pain and i get thoughts that not to go this way. Can somebody explain why this happens.
    Is there something in my body.

    • 29. Your Personal Motivator  |  July 13, 2015 at 1:47 pm

      Hi there,
      The way you describe it is more like an intuition rather than a physical or energy pain. Maybe you want to find out if the pain is more like pinching or stiff? And maybe you want to find out why your inner guides only gives you pain on shoulder? Is that your sensitive spot?

      Hope that helps.

      Rose Osman.

      • 30. A  |  July 14, 2015 at 6:41 am

        yes the intuition are high what i did found. i can even read minds of the other person in form of colours like red and green. if red then its wrong and green then its right. The pain is like a stiff which starts slowly and increases.

        most of the time some thoughts come to my mind and guides me.

        Also if i dont listen then something (siren like sound) sounds near my ear.

        please help

  • 31. A  |  July 16, 2015 at 3:26 am

    is there something black magic which someone must be carrying on me. please help in sorting this issue

    • 32. Your Personal Motivator  |  October 11, 2015 at 11:01 am

      Hi A,
      Trust your intuition. If it’s off, it tend to be true. Get a healer who knows how to remove black magic.

  • 33. Georges Vital  |  September 9, 2015 at 1:50 am

  • 34. Brightpath Wellness  |  October 11, 2015 at 10:22 am

    Hi , I experience left shoulder neck tension .. I practice yoga and get many massages .. It’s like the tension wants to hang in there. My life is very balanced. And I feel it is a lot of past emotional stuff that is trying to hold on . Is there any affirmations you recommend me . ❤️ Nicole

    • 35. Your Personal Motivator  |  October 11, 2015 at 10:59 am

      Hi Nicole,
      You can list down all the past emotions that you are carrying on the piece of paper. Feel the energy of the emotions and recite “I’m sending you off into the light or to your rightful place with love and gratitude. Thank You”
      Each recitation, do a cycle of breathing. You can say it when you inhale and then exhale, let go. When you inhale, bring your awareness on the shoulder. Exhale, let go. Once you finish with the healing, throw the paper away from your space (but do not burn it). Hope this helps.
      Love, Rose Osman.
