"Conscious and unconscious emotional experiences and feelings are processed, purified, filtered and released. New energy is released through this; we are constantly transforming. The kidneys symbolize the filtering workings within ourselves. Thanks to this emotional growth, thanks to the elimination of toxins (through urine) we can experience pure joy. We purify ourselves constantly; we take in new experiences through our feelings and emotions, and we transform ourselves through processing these expereinces that also bring up old, unprocessed emotions by association. The old is brought up to the here and now, and through this we can come to an ever growing awareness. Emotional ballast is eliminated; old junk is cleaned up when we are open to this. A free surrender to your nature, a trust in your deepest Self, is necessary for this.
However, when you fearfully hold on to old emotions, or when you block the flow of your feelings with rational thought, then you slow down a decent functioning of your kidneys. After all, your awareness directs the organs, and not the other way around. A harmonic unity between the feminine and the masculine aspect is necessary. The soft, receptive, intuitive, sensitive… needs to be accompanied in a self-assured way by the aware "I", that organizes and arranges, that lets through and handles the natural aggressive and emotional energies.
The kidneys represent the continual rebirth within yourself, when you wash away old worries and grief, when you let everything flow off your shoulders that is no more than ballast in the present. A wonderful, light feeling of liberation, joy and happiness. Kidneys function optimally when you are open for these transforming powers within yourself, which process energies and transform them into joyous, radiant feelings, on the condition that you don't clamp onto dark and pessimistic thoughts, nor to a burdensome past. Trusting that your Nature will help you always; a deep connection with your nature, with your physical body, with your deepest core of feelings. The kidneys reflect the relation you have with yourself: trust or fear? When it comes to yourself, are you hard and aggressive, or soft and welcoming? Do you despise your body or do you love yourself entirely? Do you let those emotional energies flow through freely or do you block yourself with critisism, with limiting rational thinking? The optimal relation between the inner man and the inner woman, your feelings know themselves to be safely carried in the strong arms of your self-aware Self. The cause of kidney problems are mostly related to issues with the Relationship you have with yourself. Repression of feelings (not integrating the feminine within yourself) as well as denying your self-Worth. Do you destroy yourself by distancing yourself from your body, by living in your head in an exaggerated way, instead of feeling one with your physical nature? A fearful nervous tension, constantly being *too* alert, a feeling of being overwhelmed and suffocated because you don't let your feelings flow freely. The kidneys symbolize your sense of "connection": with yourself and with others. When you truly experience this union, this love for yourself, your kidneys will feel comfy, you will draw friends and a partner toward yourself, with whom you will also feel good and relaxed. To feel connected with life, with all that lives, with nature. No struggle, but peace. No distancing critisism, but an unlimited sense of safety, peace and joy. A fresh fountain, unconcerned and beaming. The kidneys ask for a balance: a guiding and organizing structure, based on common sense on the one hand, and a total acceptance and free through-flow of energies and emotions on the other hand. A marriage within yourself."

Under probable cause:
"Criticism, disappointment, failure. Shame. Reacting like a little kid.
Under new thought pattern:
"Divine right action is always taking place in my life. Only good comes from each experience. It is safe to grow up."
