Have you been feeling stuck recently? Do you feel like something is blocking you from living the life you want to live?
If the answer is yes, then you may be experiencing energy blockage. What is energy blockage? How do you overcome a block in energy?
Check out this guide to learn everything you need to know about energy blockage and how it might be affecting your life.
What is an Energy Block?
The term ‘energy block’ is used in the personal development space to describe something that’s standing in the way of your effort or action. Basically, it’s a restriction to the flow of your life force.
Energy blocks usually prevent you from moving forward with your life. It’s important to understand that energy blocks occur on a spectrum. One may experience small energy blocks throughout the day, or, one may experience a huge energy block that feels debilitating.
Where Do Energy Blockages Come From?
An energy block is typically the result of an unhealed or repressed emotional wound. While an unprocessed emotion may seem non-existent or trivial, its presence persists and causes you to struggle with certain areas of your life.
An emotional blockage occurs when residual energy from an emotional trauma stays buried within you. This residual energy is then constantly relived on a subconscious level. When complex emotions like anger, jealousy, sadness, or guilt remain unattended, it affects your overall well-being.
In other words, a blocked emotion leads to blocked energy.
Why You Need to Heal Your Energy Blocks
Healing your energy blockages is important, as it allows you to move forward with your life. If you don’t heal your energy blockages, you’ll experience both negative mental and physical side effects.
For example, let’s say you don’t take the time to heal after losing a loved one. Not dealing with this grief can cause you to lose sleep, feel tired, or fall into a depression.
How to Heal Energy Blocks
While healing your energy blocks takes some effort, it’s definitely possible. Here are ways you can heal our energy blocks:
Reiki is a type of energy healing in which a practitioner places their palms slightly above certain points on the body. They do this to transfer universal energy from their palms to your body to promote physical and emotional healing.
In addition to Reiki, we also recommend looking into bioenergetics.
Meditation is another great way to heal your energy blocks. When meditating, focus on one chakra at a time. (A chakra is an energy point in the body.)
Imagine that each one of your chakras is a swirling pool of water. As you meditate, watch this pool of water swirl effortlessly and peacefully.
Yoga can also help you heal your energy blocks. While any type of yoga is good for energy block healing, here are some asanas (poses) that can be particularly helpful:
- Warrior pose
- Tree pose
- Wide-angle seated forward bend
- Camel pose
- Shoulder stand
- Downward facing dog
- Lotus pose or headstand
Take time exploring the various types of yoga to figure out which one is best for your energy healing.
