Clearing Energy Blocks

Clearing Energy Blocks

“We stop our feelings by blocking our energy flow.”
- Barbara Brennan

As the law of attraction becomes more and more popular, so does the law of frustration. You know what I’m talking about – when you know exactly what you want, focus on it, give thanks in advance for it, affirm it, envision it… and it still doesn’t show up.

I’ve counseled several people on this topic and experienced the same frustration myself, and over time I’ve noticed that the most common reason people are unable to attract what they want in life, is because they have energy blocks in their subtle body.

Energy blocks are little “blips” of resistance in our energetic field that prevent us from maintaining the high frequency vibration of bliss (the same vibration that transforms us into a mighty magnet for what we want to attract). Energy blocks begin as unprocessed thoughts, beliefs, emotions and fears that are out of alignment with the perspective of our Soul. They’re like little shards of glass, buried alive in our energy body because we weren’t conscious enough to challenge a thought or belief when it first occurred.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is the most effective method I’ve found for clearing energy blocks. It’s an alternative form of psychotherapy that uses affirmations and tapping on acupuncture points to manipulate your energy field.

Let me give you an example of an energy block I cleared using EFT.

For the longest time I had a fear of spending money. As you can imagine, this fear generated a great deal of anxiety in my life since spending money is somewhat necessary for survival. :)

I knew that my fear of spending money was an energy block that was preventing me from being as prosperous as I wanted to be. Money is a currency of energy that’s meant to be exchanged. Holding on to my money out of fear was blocking the inflow as well as the outflow.

One day I realized that my fear of spending money was something I could treat with EFT. I began tapping my acupressure points as I repeated the affirmation, “even though I’m afraid of spending money, I completely accept myself”.

(EFT affirmations are carefully constructed to transmute negative energy into positive energy. The first half of the affirmation states your fear or discomfort, and the second half dissolves the emotional pain using self-love. )

What happened in the next five minutes was completely bizarre. I experienced a strong surge of fear in my chest and I began to cry. My subconscious mind began expressing its REAL fear behind my fear of spending money.

If I spend money I will disappoint my father. He always taught me how to be smart with money. If I spend my money he might not love me anymore. What I’m really afraid of is that my dad will reject me”.

I took a deep breath and became still. I couldn’t believe my ears.

I then kicked it up a notch. I allowed my worst fear to become real in my mind. I imagined my father rejecting me and fully felt the subsequent emotion of fear and sadness. I changed my affirmation to, “even though I’m afraid my dad will reject me, I completely love and accept myself”, as I continued to tap my acupressure points. As I uncovered and dissolved the real fear behind my fear, I felt my energy field lift.

This experience proved to me that the rabbit hole of our consciousness runs very deep. I don’t remember where or when I picked up the fear of rejection (my dad rocks and he’d never reject me!) but if I hadn’t taken the time to clear it from my system, I’d still be hanging on to money for dear life.

A couple days after clearing this energy block, I noticed a shift in my external experience. I received an unexpected check from Yahoo in the mail (I still don’t know what it’s from) and a substantial donation to my website. Though I know I have more energy work to do, it sure feels great to dump some of the baggage that was putting a damper on my vibes.

You can learn all about EFT by visiting the official EFT website. It’s quick, easy, and doesn’t cost a cent. ;)

    Beautiful Beautiful!!!

    I used to think that when we didn’t get what we wanted and affirmed it was because God had a bigger plan …

    But I think that it’s not God who holds us back, it’s us!!

    I’ll check out that EFT website!

    I’ve been using EFT since I was 16. I also use Sedona Method and recently discovered The Work.

    The positive impact they’ve all had on my life is nothing short of … fantastic!

    Great stuff :)

    GAWD!! thank you for this. I have attracted the EXACT man I waetnd even had him calling me and due to A-H took exactly NO action and he has grown frustrated and backed away. Waiting for perfect alignment. GACK!!!!! TAKING ACTION by calling him today thank you very much. Hope it’s not too late because he is soul mate material. You are right: how can you get feedback about what vibration you’re at if you just sit there alone in front of your damn magical creation box. All of these LOA experts advocate no action. SOME action is eventually necessary. I know this for business but did not get it for love. Tongue lolling passivity be damned! Thank you!!!

    Wow. You exposed “the fear behind the fear”. This reminds me of one of the CDs from the Monroe Institute… are you familiar with them at all?

    I can very much relate to your fear, KB; since it’s something I face from time to time. After resolving some things within myself, it improved. Travel helped me get over it too, since travel often presents interesting either/or situations.

    I also want to thank you for being SO incredibly… *real* with what you’re creating on this site. I was recently doing some market research (i.e. looking at other sites in my niche) and became somewhat disheartened when I saw that more popular sites release content. every. flippin’. day.

    But the content seemed lifeless, tedious, or both, compared to what you’ve shared here. For a moment, I was starting to wonder if how I was growing my site was in vane. If they were succeeding with “travel noise”, maybe I was going about it all wrong…. but then I came here, and reading this was a breath of fresh air.

    I think we have similar creative rhythms, you and I. And realizing that on a deeper level is strangely comforting to me, to be honest. I think we’re both going to blow away our expectations of the future! :)

    I too meet people who are frustrated by the lack of progress. For many though it’s not for the lack of intention, honesty and focus, it’s an absence of get-up-and-go.
    I absolutely agree that the key is to “know exactly what you want, focus on it, give thanks in advance for it, affirm it, envision it…” then, however you have to DO something: ACT on the focus of your attention: work WITH the universe and PARTICIPATE.
