Breathwork and Energetic Blockages

It comes as no surprise that each and every person on this earth will face certain challenging experiences. Negative emotions, limiting thoughts, and spiritual trials are a part of life. Energetic blockages occur when those hardships prevent energy from flowing freely. Over time, these clogs potentially cause emotional, mental, and spiritual issues.

While a blockage doesn’t necessarily block the flow of energy entirely, it’s subtly is just as impactful in the long-run on your body. The many forms of breathwork can be invaluable in helping to clear these blocked emotions and energy, allowing you to embrace the fullness of your life.

How can I recognize energetic blockages?

Energetic blocks can be difficult to recognize at times because we aren’t always aware of the circumstances that cause them to occur. A wounded inner child or traumatic event can be repressed and forgotten, but their effects can persist. Learning how to realize the signs and get to the root cause can mean a world of difference in your everyday life.

Common manifestations of energetic blockages are:

  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sense of disconnection from self and others
  • Sluggishness
  • Stagnation
  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Physical pain and tension
  • Overwhelm
  • Disconnection from dream state/interrupted sleep

So, how do we release them?

In order to live life to our fullest potential and in alignment with our Spirit, releasing energetic blockages is nonnegotiable. Just as you can’t build a new home on a broken foundation, we can’t expect to grow without healing.

The main modalities that I have personally used to release this heaviness from my body are:

  • Intention/Meditation
  • Prayer
  • Breathwork
  • Energy work
  • Plant Medicine
Committing to several breathwork sessions with an energetic healer gives your body, mind, and spirit the time to make a breakthrough.  Furthermore, understanding the intertwining of these three parts of your self will help unfurl the blockages in each area.

Final thoughts:

Just as our muscles get tight and constricted from simple daily activities, leaving us to seek relief with massages or chiropractic work, our emotional/energetic body operates in the same way. Staying consistent and attentive in your healing journey is key to seeing results. This is why prioritizing your breathwork practice at least once a month, whether that’s in-person with a guide or online in a virtual class, is imperative.
The reward for your work within is reconnection and finally embracing true alignment – the ultimate state of happiness, flow and abundance.
