The essence of all being is energy, our physical and ethereal selves depend on the unrestricted flow of life energy that is the source of wholeness and wellness. Though the channels through which this energy flows are open systems which influenced by factors outside of our control, yet we ultimately choose what impact these will have in our lives.. A healthy, grounded individual naturally can absorb some of the energy emitted by other people and the environment, but this does not let it interrupt the continuous stream of balanced energy that sustains them; they are able to ‘cope’ constructively with stress and upset, and they are not subject to the stagnation that frequently goes hand in hand with negativity. When we keep the energy in and around our bodies flowing harmoniously, we are naturally healthy, vibrant, and peaceful; it is our responsibility as an individual to identify and clear any blockages in the energy field in order to ensure that the flow and hence balance is maintained.

 

Life energy flows through us like a strong stream when there is nothing to obstruct it, but various forces such as trauma, downbeat vibrations, and disappointments act like stones that can impede the current. If we allow these to pile up – hold on to them vs letting them go, our life energy is thrown off its course or blocked entirely, causing illness, restlessness, and a lack of vigor; however, when we take the time to clear these forces away, we limit and can even erase their power to impact our lives. Simple yet affirmative habits such as taking regular cleansing baths, practicing meditation and breathing exercises, smudging, and self-shielding, can help us protect ourselves from outside influences that might otherwise impede our energy flow. Consequently, incorporating these habits into our lives we lessen the impact their inner influences and clear our auras of unwanted attachments, thereby divesting ourselves of blocked emotions.

 

A strong and fluid energy field is the key that unlocks the doors of self-healing and peace of mind; your awareness of the flow of energy sustaining you empowers you to take charge of your own well-being by taking steps to unblock, correct, and enhance its flow. Fear will likely be the culprit when you cannot identify the source of stagnation–you may simply be afraid to let go of what is obstructing the flow. While letting go can be challenging, the exuberance you feel when the flow is restored is a welcome and blessed reward.
