What Are The Spiritual Cause of Thyroid Problems?

In this article, I am going to write about the spiritual, or metaphysical, cause of thyroid problems.  But first, what is the thyroid?  The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland found the front of the neck both sides of the trachea wind-pipe and secretes the hormone thyroxin that controls the rate of metabolism.

When the thyroid is out of balance, this presents itself as underactive (hypothyroid), the extreme becomes Hashimoto’s Disease, and overactive (hyperthyroid), the extreme of which is Graves Disease.  Stress and your adrenals play a large part in thyroid health.  Stress is a collective reaction to a series or one particular painful or uncomfortable feeling.  When the adrenals are stressed by a ‘fight or flight’ situation, the thyroid is put on hold.

Energetically the thyroid is linked to the throat chakra, the area of self- expression and personal power.  The meridian affecting the thyroid and adrenals is the triple warmer meridian.  When under-active there is a feeling of heaviness and depression, whereas when over-active there is an over-sensitivity and being hyper-alert, together with seeing chaos around you. It can be ascertained that there are many spiritual causes of thyroid problems.


The book by Louise L. Hay: Heal Your Body, states the following emotions are behind the thyroid:

  • Humiliation
  • I never get to do what I want to do
  • When is it my turn?


We can go deeper with the emotions that are behind hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism

Hypothyroid. Underactive thyroid

Hypothyroidism affects mostly women.  There is generally a stuck feeling with a tendency (but not always) to put on weight and feel depressed, tired and a decrease in mental and physical activity, together with low body temperature.  A kind of emotional hibernation.  They are afraid of taking over their lives, taking charge. and stepping forward to what they want.  In doing so can lose out in happiness, health and prosperity.  This may have come when finding it difficult to ask for things as a child and eventually giving up.  This can be made worse by a lack of forgiveness for those who held you back.  Because of that lack of movement, a great deal of unexpressed frustration and resentment can build and turn inwards.

Hyperthyroid. Overactive thyroid

Whereas the underactive thyroid type may feel inactive, the hyperthyroid type can be too busy expanding energy outwards, resulting in an increase in thyroid activity.  It is difficult to slow down and there will be a tendency to take over other the lives of those you love as well.  In doing so you do not prioritize your own life.  There is a strong need for validation from others, especially by those close to you.  You have high expectations for yourself and others, together with rage at being left out.  The result is a speeding up of bodily activity, causing irritability, weight loss, excessive perspiration and weakness.


According to Narayan Singh in his book Messages From the Body, there is a belief that those with thyroid disease have no right to express who they are, to develop, to put out and apply their creativity to succeed. 


Forgive those who you feel that have held you back in the early part of your life or those who have repeated the program into your adulthood, as they have been there to help you to overcome your fear of expression and claim your own power.

About My Work & How I Could Help You

Soul Whisperer Tony MillsMy work as a Soul Whisperer is to help you to communicate with your soul’s needs and desires.  Your current health challenges are a result of a build-up of unresolved negative emotions and pre-programming, often from your childhood.   Your soul expresses these unresolved negative emotions first through your thoughts.  Should you fail to listen to the messages that are crying out to be heard, these messages become stronger and harder for you to ignore.  They then become manifestations of pain, discomfort or ill-health. Your soul must find a way to get you to take action.

Fiona Pitcher, London. I’m just back home after a two and a half-hour walk in the woods with my dogs. This is just so incredible considering two months ago I could barely walk to the end of the road to post a letter.  In April I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and experienced every single debilitating symptom associated with it. Less than two months ago,  I had just three sessions with you and truly haven’t looked back. My energy, strength and mental clarity are BACK! I can never thank you enough. What a gift you have.
