How the body reacts to pain.
The body contracts to protect itself from physical or emotional pain and it is this contraction that may create blockages or closure of a particular chakra. The purpose of energy healing therapy is to help clear these blockages and to help balance the energy field of the body
Try this for a moment. Close your fist tightly and look at your knuckles. You can see that the knuckles of your hand turn almost white. This is because the blood supply and energy flow is now restricted in the area of the knuckles. Here’s another example. Sometimes the garden hose may become blocked or twisted or knotted. This will restrict the free flow of water through the hose. As soon as the knots and blocks have been removed, - the water then flows freely uninterrupted.
When our physical body contracts due to pain, stress or trauma, the contractions may cause a restriction in areas of the body’s blood supply. In turn this may then also restrict the energy supply to cells, tissue, organs, glands, muscles, limbs etc. In addition to the contractions of the physical body, the emotional body also contracts to protect itself from any emotional shock or trauma. Emotions are normal; however when emotions are suppressed they may in time have an effect on cells, organs, glands, muscles and tissues in the physical body, by depriving them of a natural flow of life-force energy.
Emotions associated with any incident or trauma are registered in the chakras - the body’s main energy centres, unresolved emotional issues may cause closure, imbalance or blockages in the chakra related to that particular emotion. These emotions could be anger, grief, shame, guilt, hurt , loss, fear or mortal fear. We may appear to have recovered from out physical trauma or shock and appear to be getting on with our day to day lives, but the emotional shock and trauma may have been suppressed and become lodged in our energy fields and chakras.
Suppressed emotions may have a controlling effect on our lives unless the intensity of these emotions are dissipated and the energy field is cleared and balanced. There may be a variety of reasons why we may not have been able to process or deal with our emotions. Closure or blockages in a particular chakra can in turn affect organs, glands, muscles and tissue in the physical body in the area corresponding with a particular chakra.
Applying Energy Healing techniques and applications may be helpful in helping to clear and dissipate this blocked or stagnant energy, which may help the person at a physical, emotional and mental level thus allowing a free flow of life-giving energy. This in turn may help to create the ideal environment for the body to begin its own natural self healing process.
