Emotional roots of sinusitis

Emotional Roots of Sinusitis

Sinusitis is the inflammation of the spaces inside your head, called the sinuses. It can be an acute condition, often caused by the common cold, or chronic when symptoms persist for three months or longer despite treatment. If you’ve had either, you’re all too familiar with the stuffy nose, congestion, tenderness, and pressure. You might also experience ear pressure, headache, aching in your teeth, altered smell, cough, bad breath, fatigue, and fever. Quite a few physical causes might contribute to sinusitis, but you’re probably aware of all those if this is an issue for you, and I’ll leave those discussions to you and your doctor or other medical professional.

I find it interesting that the nose is symbolic of intuition. Maybe this is because Genesis 2:7 tells us that God breathed life into man through his nostrils. I’ve heard this saying all my life: something “smells wrong” in the sense that something isn’t right. Or people say that it doesn’t pass the “sniff test.” I wonder, since God gave mankind life through the nose,

if what we’re really saying is that whatever smells off is out of alignment with that breath of heaven. Our spiritual sense of smell is our sense of discernment, and we can spot the fake because it isn’t the true. And I think that the emotional roots of issues with sinuses support that hypothesis.

Emotional Roots of Sinusitis

It makes sense to me that the first list is probably the deepest one, and the second list is how we try to cope with those issues in the first list. So often, human nature wants to control what we can when we feel anxious or fear about something.

Discernment is clearly a gift of God, so I think that part of what happens here is that we have the gift, but we don’t know what to do with it. We sense something isn’t right, but we don’t know what’s wrong or how to handle the situation. This creates negative emotions, and if we don’t process them and the situation correctly, they can cause all the issues above throughout our entire systems: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

For several years, I struggled with chronic sinusitis. In looking back, this was a time of great uncertainty and stress for me on several levels, and I was learning how to give up control. I didn’t know then what I know now about spiritual warfare and fighting the good fight of faith, and so those issues manifested in my physical body, depleting my strength and energy. I’ll share one of the most powerful tools I learned that has helped me and many others in the tools that follow.

Emotional roots of sinusitis may include:

  • fear

  • anxiety

  • stress

  • tension

  • insecurity

on one side. On the other, there’s:

  • control
  • dominating
  • possessiveness
  • being irritated by someone close to you

The Toolkit

Take note of any of the roots above that resonate with you and work through any or all of the following tools for them as a group or individually. Repeat as needed. Often, especially if this has been a longstanding issue for you, your system has a habit to overcome, so the repetition helps to rewire your system towards the positive and for ongoing healing and wholeness.

I’ve also written a series of books that address specific emotional issues that have additional tools that might be helpful to you. I’ll include those in the resource section at the end. They are included in full, in the book available at the link above or below.


This is a very simple prayer. The power isn’t in lots of flowery words, but it’s in listening and obeying. I’ve used this prayer in multiple situations. Not always do I get an answer to what’s wrong, but I always get an answer to what I’m supposed to do. More often than not, it’s just to pray and then I do so as I feel led. Sometimes, there’s a prophetic act that I’m to do, which can be as simple as a slight gesture of my hand or arm. I don’t always know what the result is for the situation, but the result for me is always profound. I’m able to rest at peace knowing I did what God asked and out of that obedience, whatever I could do, I have done and I can let God and others do the rest.

A tool that’s helped here as well is the flower essence Yarrow Shield. I didn’t realize how much of what was happening around me I was taking on as mine until I started taking the essence. What it does for me is that I can still sense whatever it is, but I know it’s not mine. This way, I don’t take it home with me! That may sound silly, but it’s been incredibly powerful for me as I work with people or am just out and about in my community.

Father, I sense something is not right here.

What is wrong?

What do you want me to do about it?

Energetic Release

And I do mean real energy, like electricity. Negative emotions can get stuck in our systems, but we can easily release them using circuitry and intention. Circuitry operates much like the electricity in your house, where the light bulb is off until you flip the switch. This completes the circuit, allows the electrical energy to flow, and the light turns on. Intention refers to our intention to release the negativity that is the key to unlocking it. You use your hands and touch certain points, depending on where the emotion or the circuit is stored. With one hand, touch one of the points on the diagrams to follow with your fingertips, and with your other hand, touch a head point with your fingertips. Touch your forehead if this feels as if it’s always been an issue, touch the top of your head if you feel it is coming at you from someone else, touch your left temple if it’s mainly in the past, or touch your right temple if you feel this about the future. Think about releasing the emotion related to that point. You don’t have to feel the emotion or identify its source, just intend to release the emotion. Hold for a few minutes or until you feel the energy release.

Do you feel that you are being controlled?

Do you feel the need to be in control of everything?

If so, you may need some healing from control.

Control tells you that you need to be under someone’s thumb at all times or you’ll run amok. Or, it tells you that you have to control everything around you or you won’t be able to be safe, or get anything done. Control tells you that control equals love.

Control lies.

Do some things make you feel like a child again, right back when you were hurt?

If so, you may need some healing from triggers.

Triggers tell you that your current situation will turn out exactly like the one when you were a child. That you’re still as helpless as you were then. Triggers put you right back in your memory of hurts at all ages and tell you that it will always be the same. The people today will hurt you like the people in the past.

Triggers lie.

Do you have a hard time celebrating when others succeed?

Do you believe that you have to be better than anyone else?

Are you afraid that others will take what you have?

If so, you may need some healing from jealousy.

Jealousy tells you that if others do better than you in an area that you are worthless. Envy of what others have consumes you because without being on top you’re at the bottom. Jealousy tells you that your identity is bound in what others have or do and you have to keep others from stealing from you.

Jealousy lies.

Are you anxious and afraid?

Do you fear the present or the future?

Does worry consume your thoughts?

If so, you may need some healing from anxiety.

Anxiety tells you that the future is scary, and gives you pictures of all the horrible things that can and will go wrong. It churns all the fear in your stomach until you want to run away and hide. Anxiety says that nothing good will happen to you.

Anxiety lies.

Do you feel that nothing will ever change?

Do you give up easily when you meet resistance?

If so, you may need some healing from hopelessness.

Hopelessness tells you that you are helpless and powerless to change anything about your life. It tells you that all the bad things will always be the same. Hopelessness tells you that the future will be no better or worse than what you’re going through now.

Hopelessness lies.
