How energy blockages are created
“Too often humans cut themselves off from the greater source of this energy and so feel weak and insecure. To gain energy we tend to manipulate or force others to give us attention and thus energy. When we successfully dominate others in this way, we feel more powerful, but they are left weakened and often fight back. Competition for scarce, human energy is the cause of all conflict between people.”
Our power struggles come in many forms. If we begin to look at interchanges in terms of energy, they not only make more sense, but we then also have some simple and helpful options that take us out of conflict and help to reduce stress and create more ease, peace and happiness for ourselves and others.”
Energy Blockages, Energy Excess or Deficiency all lead to stress, poor health and powerlessness
Our energy is our power. Binding it or dissipating it contributes to a state of powerlessness.
An energy blockage or deficient energy in a chakra produces avoidant behavior patterns. Excessive energy is typically expressed as overcompensation of some kind.
In addition, we can have an abundance of one type of energy but be deficient in another. Some people describe themselves as a “high energy” person when they are strongly focused and identified with one part of themselves at the detriment of other parts. Not being in touch with all their energy means that they can often not be aware of how others are being impacted by their “strong energy”.
Energy Blockages and the Chakras
Blockages, deficiencies or excesses can occur in any one of the chakras and stop the smooth flow in and out, or up and down throughout the body.
Blocks in our energy system are essentially too many protons collected in one place so that the flow of electrons through the channels is impeded.
Using our inner senses to consciously circulate energy helps to release blocks and establish clear open channels so our mind and body can remain strong or heal if that is what is necessary.
A purposeful, focused, regular practice of energy circulation can help prevent a breakdown in health.
In cases where illness is already present this practice can enhance other treatments and lessen healing time.
Vertical currents of energy in the body run through the meridians. Energy in the chakras moves on a horizontal plane. Disruption of flow in these energy centers creates blocks or distortions in reception and expression of a chakra’s qualities, purpose or function.
Energy blockages, fear and domination
An increase (excess energy) as a way of coping is manifested as overcompensation usually out of underlying fear or weakness. We see this in people who dominate situations and people. On the surface this may look like a powerful approach. However, internally the excessive energy required to accomplish this behavioral style tends to stagnate and eventually creates a health problem.
A decrease in energy or a freezing response is a strategy that results in withdrawal to avoid conflict or challenge. This deficient energy state produces feelings of inadequacy, being unable to cope, or have what it takes to work through situations. Retreat is a common consequence which creates emptiness, restriction, and feelings of uselessness. In either case repetitive embedded unconscious patterns develop.
