The longer I am on this journey the more I realize the role that stress plays in our lives. When we feel we have it under control something new happens to “test” our ability to control it. When life hands us a challenge some amazing things happen in our physical bodies. As well as our energetic body, etheric body and soul.
Because we are energetic beings that energy has its peaks and dips. Just like the power running through your home, there are times when there is a high demand and like the middle of the night or day when less energy is needed a lower demand. What the energy company does to maintain a constant flow of energy is similar to what we need to do. There needs to be a storage of energy as well as transformers along the way to assist in controlling the “demand”.
Life is an ongoing classroom and how we accept the lessons determines our grade. That grade is seen in how we handle the lessons / challenges that life hands us. What has the stress of the event done to you. What have you done to manage the stress, what level of stress occurred? As we move through life and accept the challenges we can eliminate most of the physical, emotional and mental effects that stress causes but learning the lessons. But accepting life as a place of learning and moving on, by taking our life lessons and helping others going through their lessons, we reduce the need to carry the stress. Stress is an effect of our beliefs about a situation. By taking a step back to evaluate, educate and find different ways to fix, improve or modify, or sometimes just letting go and allow the universe to fix it. We reduce the energetic block, ie; stress and the energy flows in the proper vibration.
Universal energy which is what we all are made up of moves through us best if we allow it to. When we put up blocks by trying to control a situation because of our beliefs, ego or need to control the result is stress. That stress then creates disturbances in our bodies if left unchecked create illness and disease.
So what do we do? That depends on many factors, what level of blocks you have, what illness and disease have formed. Where you are on your spiritual journey. Some tools that have worked for me to balance my life, energy and spirit include Reiki, energy work, meditation, exercise, purposeful prayer, and a deep faith in the spiritual truths. I have developed processes and practices that assist in the balancing of energetic systems.
