Advanced Energy Work Therapy is a therapy that is primarily intended for all those who have experienced a deep energy surge or release and are unable to cope with it properly.
As I have the chance to work at many events, workshops and retreats with more and more people who have big experiences – I witness huge changes their bodies, minds and souls go through. Those changes sometimes leave them feeling unable to cope and adjust to the change in a way they can function normally when they get back to their lives.
What is a big energy release?
A big energy release or surge is unlocking of energy stored in our bodies or a big download of energy (information) that happens during meditations, mystical experiences, Life between Lives therapy or Near Death Experiences.
As we go through our lives we emotionally experience everything we go through. And if we don’t allow ourselves to process those emotions we store them in different parts of our bodies. Often we store similar emotions in particular areas of our bodies, and that is why certain energy centers are associated with certain emotions.
Usually we store:
- sadness and remorse in our hearts, lungs and chest (4th energy center)
- anger and shame in our stomach (3rd energy center)
- gulit in our reproductive organs and urogenital tract (2nd energy center)
- fear in our bowel, lower back and legs (1st energy center)
- all of above mentioned emotions are reflected in our 5th energy center (we can’t express ourselves or live our truth if we feel afraid, guilty, ashamed etc.)
- and so on…
One of our coping mechanisms or ”survival strategies”, as we often call it in therapy, is learning how to suppress those emotions and not show them. But, after some point our bodies can’t hold all that inside anymore so, we either get ill or energy starts to get out. It often happnes that energy is being released involuntarily, for example when ”we lose it” and yell at our family members, partner or colleagues at work.
In time, during our adult life, we more or less learn to control those outbursts and regulate them. Sometime in a healthier way (like going for a run when we are feeling like we are going to burst or EXPRESSING how we feel) or less healthy way (like shouting and breaking things around us and relationships we’re in).
If we don’t express our feelings and process events we go through in a healthy way – it is easy to understand how illnesses form. When we don’t manage our stored energy properly (talking about lower frequency emotions like fear, anger, shame, guilt…) it starts to affect our balance and health. More information about the connection between energy centers, emotions and ilnesses you can find here.
The ways we voluntarily release this stored energy
When we start practising meditation, yoga asanas, pranayama (especially techniques like Sudarshan Kriya or Kundalini) or some other techniques that can trigger the release of store emotions that energy is finally getting the chance to be released.
For some this process happens gradually in a way that they might experience shivers, goosebumps, gentle body movements or an ecstatic feelings. Sometimes we might not be aware of it happening at all, but as time goes by we find ourselves more peaceful, calm and balanced.
For others this release can happen as a big eruption of energy. Their bodies suddenly release such big amount of energy that they start to tremble, shake or move uncontrollably. Sometimes people know how to surrender to this process, letting the body do what it has to do, trusting that it knows best how to cope with this surge of energy. If possible, that is the way to go with it. Let go, let your body shake and do what is has to do to unblock. Remember, our bodies are much wiser than we think!
Sometimes, however, these sensations your body goes through can frighten you. You might feel the urge to stop the process, or you might be stopped midways by someone or something happening outside of you. In these cases, not all of the energy that started to be released gets out. Part of it stays under the surface (but still wants to be released) and that can cause big problems.
There can be two reasons people struggle after such event. One is that they’ve experienced some kind of trauma in their life, didn’t process the emotions and the memory of it finally started to be released but it got stuck due to above mentioned reasons.
Or they’ve received a big download of information and energy and their bodies and minds are struggling to integrate it.
Both reasons are great reasons and we need to embrace the change although it might be very challenging. Often we need help to do it properly.
