Clearing Energy Blocks to Move Forward in Life

Energy and Movement

Everything is energy. Therefore, it’s easy to imagine that energy is a part of life moving forward. But, did you know it can slow you down and cause stagnation? More surprisingly, it can have a reverse effect. That is, it can get you unstuck. In fact, clearing energy blocks can quickly and effortlessly free you to move forward in life.

Energy healing is particularly helpful if you don’t understand what caused your stagnation and you don’t know what to do. Frankly, if you’re like many people, you may not have the energy or motivation to try. Energy healing can get you unstuck in this situation as well.

What’s the Feeling of Stuck Like

Stuck is when no matter what you try, you get the same result: an unsatisfactory solution to the problem that’s in front of you. Or, you’re out of ideas and hit a dead end. For some people, it can feel like ambiguity, confusion, apathy, or something’s just not right.

What’s Life Moving Forward

So what do I mean by moving forward in life? Life flows forward when you’re able to recognize and accept challenges, assess and access personal capacities, seek appropriate assistance, and make adjustments. And, as a result, you’re able to maintain a well-adjusted functional approach to day-to-day living and unexpected events. This is ideal.

For some of us, these times offer a clear and decisive signal to make a change. We objectively assess, rally our resources, resolve the issue, and move forward. We’re all like this some of the time in some situations.

So, it’s not surprising that you and everyone would rather go through life moving forward with ease rather than faltering.

When Life Doesn’t Flow Forward

Unfortunately, we all experience times when our lives feel stagnant or stuck. We can experience these situations as an emotional and/or mental quagmire. We may feel enmeshed with responsibilities, conflicting options, limitations, and insufficient personal resources to successfully disentangle. In this state, how to initiate the process of change and reestablish equilibrium seems elusive at best. Indeed, the idea of getting moving again seems simply inconceivable.

This is when energy healing (e.g., Reiki and IET) is particularly appropriate because clearing energy blocks restores flow and can help us move forward in life in ways our thinking simply cannot grasp.

How Clearing Energy Blocks Help You Get Unstuck and Move Your Life Forward

For good health, flexibility, and resilience you need your energy to be clear and flowing smoothly throughout all of your energy bodies, including your dense physical body. This is similar to good circulation of blood, oxygen, nutrients, lymph, hormones, etc.

Temporary energy blocks are inevitable. Sustained or chronic blocks, on the other hand, will ultimately show signs of dysfunction. In other words, stuck energy implies imbalance and less than perfect health. How imperfect depends on the magnitude and persistence of the imbalance. This is why shifting and unblocking stuck energy is a big part of energy healing and regular maintenance. Energy healing is principally restoring balance and flow to reestablish good health and well-being.

As an energy healer, I tend to find energy blocks where someone is holding onto energy that does not serve them. For example, residual feelings or reservations toward moving on from a broken relationship. Similarly, poor nutrition and self-care can contribute to a sluggish energetic flow. In fact, all limiting beliefs; triggered behaviors; habitual emotional or behavioral patterns; and spiritual doubt, worry, or confusion create constricted and stuck energy.

In addition, all interactions involve some degree of energy exchange whether positive, negative, or both. Sometimes you might take hold of a bit of someone else’s energy or they might leave some with you. It doesn’t have to be deliberate. In fact, most energy exchange happens on a subconscious level.

How Clearing Energy Blocks With Integrated Energy Therapy Helps You Move Forward in Life

Although Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) works throughout all your energy bodies, including your physical body, it focuses on cellular memory as well as associated manifestations within all the layers of the aura. In essence, the clearing of energy blocks takes place on many levels simultaneously, over time and space. In this way, it addresses multiple aspects of an issue eliminating the need to explicitly address each facet of resistance individually. Other energy healing modalities may do this as well. But, IET seems to work more thoroughly often with surprisingly potent results.

In fact, IET is one of the best energy healing modalities for you if you want to get moving: gain clarity, change stubborn behaviors and habits, take specific actions, and move forward on the desired path (e.g., relocate, leave a relationship, take up a new profession). This clearing can occur on any or all levels: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual as well as through time and space.

As an IET client, you need not uncover the cause of your stagnation nor understand what needs to happen to initiate disentanglement. In fact, your energy will follow your intention and knows where it needs to go in order to facilitate fulfillment.

So, support good energetic flow and periodically cleanses with energy healing. This will help you maintain good health, keep life moving forward, and stay unstuck.
