Are Energy Blocks Stopping You From Living a Balanced Life?

A lot of people rely on coffee, chocolate or energy drinks to get them through the day, but have you ever wondered what else powers us? We are beautiful, energetic beings and have this amazing life force that flows through us and which supports our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. When this energy becomes stuck or blocked, it can make us feel more emotional, we may begin to feel new aches and pains in our body and we just generally feel off balance. Alternative, holistic modalities, like Reiki, are gaining popularity for their ability to release these energy blocks and bring the mind, body and soul back into balance.

What Are Energy Blocks?

Energy blocks, are disruptions that occur to the flow of energy in our body. These blocks can occur for a number of reasons, including stress, not dealing with challenging emotions, trauma, or physical injuries. Energy flows through channels in the body known as meridians, and when these channels become congested or obstructed, our body will start letting us know that our energy is stuck. Ignore these signs for long enough, and that’s when physical and emotional issues can occur.

So What are the Signs that our Energy is Blocked?

Aches and Pains in the body: Energy blocks can play out as physical pain or discomfort. It could be you get new aches and pains that may appear for no reason.

You’re more emotional: Stagnant energy can also affect your emotional well-being. You may feel more irritable, or anxious than normal.

You just feel blah: When your energy is blocked, you may feel fatigued and have a general lack of vitality. Everyday tasks can feel draining and exhausting. You may also find it difficult to make decisions.

Your Immunity is not great: A compromised energy flow can also weaken your immune system, making you more susceptible to catching any bugs that might be floating around.

So How Does Reiki Release Energy Blocks?

Following are some of the ways in which Reiki can help release the energy blocks in your body.

Balancing Your Energy Centres: The hand positions used in a Reiki session are focussed around the seven major energy centres in the body, known as chakras. When these energy centres are in harmony, the overall energy flow improves, reducing blockages.

Stress Reduction: Stress is a big contributor to energy blocks. Reiki induces deep relaxation, which lets the body move into “rest and digest” mode. This relaxation encourages the release of tension and energy blockages.

Clearing those Emotions that challenge us: When we don’t deal with challenging emotions, they can become trapped in the body and lead to energy blocks. Reiki can help release these emotions, allowing individuals to process and let go of any emotional baggage.

Immunity Boost: The body has this innate ability to heal itself, if we give it a chance. By removing energy blockages, it can help improve immune function, making it easier for the body to fight off illness.

Energy blocks can have a profound impact on our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Reiki, with its holistic approach, offers a gentle and effective way to release these blocks and restore balance to our lives. If you've been experiencing aches and pains or are having trouble dealing with the emotional stuff life throws us, or just simply want to work on your overall well-being, consider exploring the world of Reiki and the benefits it can offer.

Much love
