When I work with my clients, one topic that always comes up is what to do with stress.
Now this is not the good stress that motivates us to higher goals and achievements – this is the stress that tears you down, day in and day out.
All stressors are not created equal and in fact stress comes in two distinct forms.
Types of Stress
There is the stress of daily life. You know the everyday things that pull us in one direction and then the other.
Worry about jobs, financial matters, how are the kids doing, what is up with my partner, what will that doctors visit tell me. And on and on and on.
Everybody has this kind of stress and there are many techniques to learn to deal with it.
We hear about doing relaxation exercises, yoga, drinking herbal teas, taking “me” time and of course stopping in at the doctor’s office for a prescription.
And all of these methods have different degrees of success. Especially when coupled with modest life style changes that help reduce some of the incoming stress.
Then there is the stress on the body that comes from past events.
This is a type of stress that is much more difficult to deal with using conventional self help techniques.
This type of stress comes from events where something or some things have happened to you or from areas in your life where you feel you have failed.
You may have been raised in an abusive environment. You may be married in an abusive environment. You may have felt that you made many mistakes in raising your children or in making career and financial choices.
When added together, the list of stressors that my clients tell me about is quite extensive.
But the one thing these stressors all have in common is that they cause havoc on your physical and emotional well being.
The fastest way to remove these stressors is to see a qualified energy healer and simply have the stressors removed. I do it all the time for my clients.
What happens is that past stresses or traumas get embedded into your energy field and cause the energy flow in that area to become stagnated.
Now what usually happens is that since these blockages are generally so long term they have been incorporated into your reaction patterns and feel “normal”.
But they are anything but normal. They may be usual. They may be familiar. They may be comfortable, but normal – no.
When you have energy that is stagnated in a certain area of your energy field it like having knots in a muscle.
If you have a knot in your back muscle it may be hard or impossible to turn or bend in a certain direction. You become limited in the way your body responds. And you are forced to move in a way that may not be the best for the situation.
The same is true for blocks in your energy field. You may be in an emotional situation that would have you react with kindness and compassion but your energetic blocks force you to move in the direction of suspicion and fear. Not good.
Anything that causes you to react in a forced manner is stressful. And long term stress shows itself in your physical body, in your emotional well being and in your spiritual openness.
What Does This Mean
The conventional method of relieving stress induced by trauma is to either use medication or to embark on a course of talk therapy with a qualified psychologist or psychiatrist.
And these methods work over a period of time.
My preferred method is to see a qualified and trained energy healer and have them simply remove the blocked energy. When the energy is released the stress from the trauma is also released.
And you are free to live your life.
