Healthy Subtle Energy Flows Like a River
Our energy is always expanding or contracting, blocked or flowing.
For a moment imagine a free flow of energy sweeping through you like a river that is free to flow through the landscape. Feel what it would be like to BE this river, at first meandering, then rushing along more strongly, perhaps stopping to pool in a happy little eddy just for the joy of it, once again picking up speed as the current moves forward toward the future, exhilarated by the prospect of a new adventure around the next corner.
Feel how this river moves smoothly and evenly through a variety of landscapes shifting, moving, and shaping itself to navigate the terrain but never fighting, stopping or stagnating. Of course rivers do hit obstacles just as we do in life. But unlike the river we have choices, free will and the ability to not be at the mercy of the elements if we know the appropriate skills to navigate the territory.
Blocks to Healthy Subtle Energy Flow
When our river of energy is negatively impacted by life, people, events, traumas or stresses, there are reactions in our energy field. These reactions occur as mechanisms of protection and survival. Unfortunately these can then become a source of obstruction to the free flow of energy that would fully enliven us.
If all of our energies are not fully charged, properly flowing and coherent, we can not meet the world with the full force of our being. Our view of the world and our place in it then tends toward negativity, limitation and feelings of deficiency. We may experience suffering and pain in our lives as a result of these wounded energies reverberating through our system. Working through our intellect is not enough nor is it the most powerful way to release our suffering, pain, reactive responses or troublesome patterns. The good news is that there is a lot we can do to remedy these situations.
Working with our energy field and the chakras can release old stagnant, stuck energy, help to heal over wounds of the past, stabilize and ground us so we can live in the present fully and with ease. It is the most profound and fundamental way to reclaim our power.
Healthy Subtle Energy Improves Every Part of Life and Living
As we work with our energy, we can expand every aspect of ourselves and be better able to connect and live from an authentic empowered center. In addition, we become large enough to hold all of life and strong enough to meet life directly which adds a depth and richness that is lacking when we live from our minds in what becomes a watered down version of life.
