Breath Through Barriers to Change With Your Energy
We all have areas of our lives where we want to make changes, especially as we get older and those stubborn challenges begin to slow us down and significantly detract from our everyday lives. It can be frustrating when we hit a barrier to change in our career, relationships, health, or overall well-being and can’t find our way through, no matter how hard we try.
And often an obstacle in one area of our life will ripple out and negatively impact other aspects of our lives. For example, chronic health symptoms can impair our ability to work or make us withdraw from our relationships. Everything is connected.
Luckily, there is a powerful tool that we all have easy access to that can help us break through these barriers to change – our life force energy.
Life force energy, also known as chi or prana, is the energy that flows through all living things. It is the force that drives growth, healing, and transformation. When we tap into this energy, we can access a deep well of power and inspiration to help us overcome even the most stubborn obstacles.
A New Path to Success
You can use your energy to solve the stubborn problems in your life and finally break through those barriers to change with ease.
Most of us learned that if we work hard enough, are persistent enough, and put in enough time, then we can accomplish anything. We often apply this idea when we have a goal we want to achieve or when we encounter an obstacle: we jump right in and start expending large amounts of physical, emotional, and mental effort.
While you can make some progress with these types of efforts, there are many instances in our lives where we are unable to move forward or make progress no matter how much effort we put into it. This is when those stubborn challenges become a distracting focal point in our lives.
A new path through these barriers can be made with your energy. To do this, you pause the physical, mental, and emotional effort, and apply “spiritual effort” instead.
Spiritual effort is the act of working with your life force energy. When you make changes in the energy field within and around you, then your reality will automatically align with your new vibration, and obstacles will often dissolve.
The 4 P’s of Spiritual Effort
There are many ways to work with your energy to affect positive change in your life. The most important thing that you can do is to find the energy practices that work best for you and resonate with your unique frequency.
One framework that you can use for successfully enhancing your life with energy is “The 4 P’s”. They are:
1 – Pause: As previously mentioned, taking the time to pause your physical, emotional, and mental effort can make a big difference. When you stop trying, you open yourself to receive your life force energy, the supportive energies around you, and the inherent wisdom they hold. It’s giving your mind and body a rest so that your spirit can take the lead.
2 – Presence: Coming into full presence can help to focus your awareness on the subtle energy interactions that underlie all of your life’s experiences. Being fully present in the moment can be hard, though. You may be confronted with your physical or emotional discomfort, and accepting your present circumstances for what they are can be tough. But when you become fully present, you are embodying more of your life force energy as you pull it back from dwelling on the past or planning for the future.
3 – Practices: After you pause and become fully present, it’s time to employ your favorite energy practices. Focus on those practices that resonate with you in the moment, even if your mind doesn’t understand why. Practices may include grounding, balancing and aligning your chakras, or creating a healthy energetic boundary with the world around you. You can also practice more complex energy approaches where you journey into the energy field that connects us all to make significant changes with your energy.
4 – People: Find a community with whom you can share your spiritual growth. Something magical happens when a group gathers to do energy work together. You accelerate your growth by sharing your own experiences, learning from others, and experiencing the “group field effect”, a phenomenon that happens when we become energetically bonded, and when one person grows, we all are lifted up.
Anyone can learn to break through stubborn barriers to change with their energy. It’s easier than you think, and the possibilities are endless.
