A lot of people these days, particularly individuals from the self-selecting groups that post on sites like Pavlina Forums, are experiencing physical symptoms along the spine. Often sensations from the area in the back between the shoulder blades on up to the the back of the neck and perhaps up to crown of the skull.
These are pretty interesting "physical symptoms". I'm not so sure that they represent "hopes, fears, judgements, core beliefs, where we negate ourselves, where we're in denial, where we react/respond, etc"...
I tend to think it's more like the adjustment or accommodation of a garden hose when the flow pressure is increased significantly.
