We don’t often think about the emotional reasons why we might manifest a physical problem. But more and more there is evidence to suggest that many physical issues have an emotional component to them. Consider these for why your vagina isn’t as juicy as you’d like.

1. Your life is dry.

What have you done lately that excites you, that juices YOU up? What lights you up and makes you so happy that it brings vitality to everything else in your life? Anything?

Maybe it’s time to re-ignite the flames of passion not necessarily for someone, but for something.

2. You’re holding on to grief or grudges.

What hurt you that you just can’t seem to let go of? What deep grief have you not allowed yourself to express?

Holding that heaviness and hurt within your body for long periods of time is detrimental to your healthy, and your vagina is part of your body. Find a way to process the stuck emotions and energy inside you. Let it go and move on.

3. You want something you don’t have.

I’m talking about old loves here…or possibly new loves you can’t have. Someone who’s married or otherwise unavailable to you.

But while you crave that person, trust me — you don’t really want them. Full engagement with another is always preferable. So please find something (or someone) else to feel excited about.

4. You’re kind of a bitch.

There, I said it. Maybe you didn’t start off this way, but somewhere along the line you got super defensive. You’re super sensitive, you can’t bear anyone getting near you (physically or emotionally) without lashing out. You want this, and then that. No one can figure out exactly what you want.

You think you’re protecting yourself, but your just closing yourself off from life.

5. You can’t self-soothe.

And I don’t mean by drinking, smoking, compulsively watching TV, exercising or shopping. I mean you can’t stroke yourself, love yourself and generally just treat yourself with kindness! Your body dried up because you give it no real love or attention.

Try spending even just 5 minutes every day paying attention to yourself. Are you stressed? Take a few minutes and breathe. Do a few stretches. Place your hand on your own stomach or your own heart and just notice the body you’re in. It might feel awkward at first, but in time, you’ll begin to love this time and want more of it.

Ladies, I’m not being harsh. I’m not here to blame you. But sometimes the very things we do to self-protect end up hurting us most … emotionally and physically. If your body is withering, it means your spirit is too in some way.

It’s time to take an honest look at your life and your mindset and hear the truth your body is trying to communicate to you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
