The essence of all being is energy. And we depend on its unrestricted flow that is the source of wholeness and wellness.
The channels through which this energy flows are influenced by factors outside of our control, yet, we ultimately choose what impact these will have in our lives. It is up to us to identify and clear blockages to ensure that flow is maintained. All healthy, grounded individual absorb some portion of the energy emitted by other people and the environment, but this does not interrupt the continuous stream of balanced energy sustaining them. These same individuals 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.
Life energy flows through us like a swift stream when there is nothing to obstruct it, but various forces such as trauma and disappointments act like stones that impede the current. If we allow these to pile up, our energy is thrown off its course or blocked entirely, causing illness, restlessness — a lack of vigor. If, however, we take the time to clear these stones away, we remove their power to impact our flow. When we cultivate simple yet affirmative habits such as practicing meditation and breathing exercises, spending time away from devices and immersed in nature, we become resilient to outside influences that might otherwise impede our energy flow. Likewise, we lessen the impact of inner influences when we divest ourselves of unwanted attachments and blocked emotions.
I've learned that 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 that flow. Letting go can be challenging, but the exuberance you will feel when the flow is restored seems a welcomed reward.
