The Neck: Connection/Disconnection with Authority Figures

The neck is the place where feelings of being overwhelmed and burdened by life experience sit. This is the part of the body which connects the administrator—the brain—with the worker—the body. Therefore, disconnection in the relationship with authorities will often be reflected as a problem in the neck area.

Additionally, the bones represent the structuring element in the body. Without them we wouldn’t have shape. The skeletal system and its related organs, the discs, bring order, structure and security to the body. These are masculine or fatherly qualities.

It would be good to examine the relationship with father and work out any inconsistencies there, as well, in order to support healing.

A related issue is being able to speak one’s truth. One of the big problems in worker/boss relationships is the open flow of communication.  Underlings do not feel that it is safe to voice their opinions, concerns, or suggestions for improvement In so many work environments. There can be a silent agreement that some people have the authority to speak and some don’t.
