09 May 4 Reasons Why Your Energy May Be Blocked
As we touched on in some of our other recent posts on chakras, there are seven main centers of energy within each of us — all of them connected and flowing to one another, bridging our spiritual, emotional and physical selves.
Ideally, we want this flow of energy to be open and balanced, so that we can heal faster (both physically and emotionally) and live our lives to the fullest. But sometimes factors come into play which create energy blocks, like dams in a stream of water.
When this happens, we often don’t know how to resolve the issue because we may not be aware of the source of the problem. Awareness is a crucial step to healing, no matter the type of pain you’re going through, so today we’re going to review a few possible reasons your energy may be blocked that you might not be aware of yet.
You might be avoiding something.
Whether you’re going through a difficult time personally, professionally, financially or in some other way, it’s possible you’ve been avoiding it. Facing hard situations head-on are never enjoyable, but delaying your response to whatever it is can prolong the issue — or make it worse.
For example, if you’re afraid to have a tough conversation with someone who hurt you, energy blocks can build up and cause a number of other problems, such as insomnia, headaches or migraines, chest pain, or body tension. You also likely won’t find any relief by trying to cover it up with medications and without addressing the underlying issue.
You’re stressed or overworked.
Are you a hardworking mother and a successful entrepreneur? Are you someone who has their hands involved in a dozen projects at any one time? Do you have a habit of over-scheduling and overloading your plate, because that’s just what you’ve always done?
As much as most of us would love to think that we’re capable of doing anything and everything at optimal levels all the time, it simply isn’t realistic, or healthy for that matter. Overworking ourselves and/or staying in a high-stress mode 24/7 is a fast and sure way to create energy blocks, leaving us feel drained, uninspired, and irritable.
You haven’t been practicing any self-care.
Even when you have a lot going on, practicing self-care is one way to avoid potential energy blocks from starting in the first place.
If you’ve stopped making healthy eating choices, avoided the gym or other forms of exercise, or stayed up late to work on projects multiple nights in one week, chances are you aren’t giving yourself enough time to focus on you. Self-care may look different for you than it does for someone else, but the key is to find what works for you (meal planning, yoga, meditation, journaling, sleeping in, etc.) and include it in your schedule throughout the week, if not every day.
You may be holding onto negative energy.
Anger, heartache, anxiety, fear, regret. There are dozens of faces that negative energy wears, and it’s a huge culprit of energy blocks.
This goes beyond simply avoiding something like we discussed above. Sometimes, even when a situation has played itself out completely, we still subconsciously hold onto negative thoughts or feelings. This can happen because we’re just used to it like a bad habit, or because we don’t know how to let it go. But if it lingers for too long, the small bump in the road can build up and become a wall, stopping our positive energy from flowing and impacting our overall well being.
