Our very intelligent bodies are reflections of what is going on within us. We are incredible maps on which our emotions, ailments and challenges are shown as a guide to our inner world. They guide us into ourselves, giving us information and a reflection of that which is trying to get our attention. The same is true of our skin. Psoriasis showed me my inner hardships and helped me look at the shadows that had not been addressed or brought to awareness. These shadows were my hidden emotions and fears, and the part of me that was craving attention and love.
