It happens to all of us. As you get older and go to school you’re expected to learn to do more and more things. You might have been richly rewarded for being careful not to make any mistakes and decided that being perfect was the only way to survive. Your energy can get so frozen into imagining the terrible consequences of making a mistake that you lose your joy in just trying new things.
Life energy gets stuck when something painful or overwhelming happens that you can’t handle. It might have happened 10 minutes or 40 years ago. You freeze it to protect yourself from the pain—perhaps of someone’s disapproval. It is like bumping yourself on a table and either holding tight to the bruised spot with your hand or even refusing to go near the table again.
As long as you hold on to the bruised place you can’t use your hand for anything else. Twenty or forty years later, if you happen to learn you have not met someone else’s expectations you may feel far more ashamed than seems appropriate for the current situation.
When something happens in your daily life that is similar in some way to an event that is frozen in your past, it breaks through your protection and sets off, like a trigger, the distress that is already in place in your life energy system. You just did not even realize your energy was lost in your past—until now.
Today’s Distress Connects to Your Stuck Energy
You may not even know that your current problem is a reaction to something that is connected to something else that happened long ago. You just know you feel on edge or worried or can’t seem to get around to doing something you want to do. Nevertheless, learning about these triggers and connections may be very important to letting the problem go.
