We are consciously aware of many reasons why it is hard to let go of people, places, and circumstances in life: we become attached, they are familiar/ habitsâ‚¬Â¦ it’s hard, painful, scary and unfamiliar. Emotionally facing the fears that underlie why we are having a hard time releasing and moving on is good and a major step to being able to change or move past our difficulties. Once we address our fears, limiting beliefs or lack of skill we are much better able to do what we need to do.
What I have learned, working with my own issues as well as those of clients, is that there is also another level of awareness that can be helpful in this area. That level focuses on the energy dynamics that operate beneath the surface in the circumstances of our lives. If we understand those workings our changes, transitions and challenges become easier and less painful.
Concepts that can help ease change and transition
We leave energy imprints on each other, as well as on objects. We charge our environment with our energy. This explains breaking in periods with our possessions or environmentsâ‚¬Â¦it also explains more about the comfort of favorite blankets, toys, and the focusing support of prayer shawls, and special tokens or objects.
The more we are exposed to certain patterns the more we are affected by them no matter their origin. This happens through Entrainment, a kind of natural adjusting to each other’s or our environment’s frequency. In addition there is cording and streaming of energies that are always present in our interactionsâ‚¬Â¦for good or ill. We can readily see this with families and peer groups.
Knowing about these energetic interactions helps us understand negative interchanges, but also helps to explain why it is painful when we leave a family, relationship, group or job even if it is for the best. We need to uncouple from the energies that have been operational. If we are conscious then this can happen in a positive way that leaves people intact and strong. Typically though it does not happen and we not only drag our past forward with us into the future, but also impede our very progress into that future.
Energetic healing approaches can ease us through grief, loss and change. In addition to making our transition times much less painful, they also help integrating new learning, growth and embracing the future from a place of strength. Instead of bleeding energy we heal at a deep level and build strength, resiliency and new pools of internal power.
