Have you ever felt like there’s an invisible weight on your shoulders, something you can’t quite see but definitely feel?

This feeling, often elusive and unexplainable, highlights the crucial role of energy in our daily lives.

We frequently underestimate how our internal energy shapes our experiences, emotions, and overall well-being.

Today, let’s explore a concept that, while not widely discussed, is essential to understanding our inner harmony: “stuck energy.”

This invisible burden can quietly influence our lives, and grasping its impact is the first step towards a profound transformation.

My Own Experience with Stuck Energy

Every now and then, I feel heavy in my body, sad and upset, although there is no reason to feel that way.

Before learning about stuck energy, I would think that I am doing something wrong or that I need to change.

I would dive into self-care routines, question my behavior and overthink just to fix that sense of dissatisfaction.

After learning that empaths and highly sensitive people are like sponges, taking on everybody’s emotion’s and energies as their own, something changed for me.

I figured that before I dive into all those self-help techniques, it is wise to clear my energy field.

After working with my energy and creating an energy clearing routine, I feel more balanced and happy.

If you can relate, make sure to read on, as we delve deeper into the topic stuck energy.

What is Stuck Energy?

Stuck energy is akin to emotional or mental debris that accumulates in our system, obstructing the free flow of our inner vitality.

For example, it can arise from unresolved emotions, past traumas, or chronic stress and behaves like an unseen clutter in our minds and bodies.

This energy stagnation can manifest in various forms – from unexplained fatigue and emotional blocks to a general sense of dissatisfaction with life.

The impact on our well-being is substantial; this hidden weight can drain our energy, leaving us feeling disconnected from our true selves and diminishing our life’s quality.

In worst case scenario’s, it may hold you back from reaching for your goals and result in a stagnation of your own energy flow in life.

Common Signs that Your Energy is Stuck

Recognizing the signs of stuck energy is vital for addressing it.

Common indicators include a persistent feeling of lethargy or fatigue, regardless of how much rest you get.

Also, you might experience emotional symptoms like unexplained sadness, irritability, or a sense of being emotionally overwhelmed without a clear cause.

Physically, you may notice tension in certain body parts, headaches, or a general feeling of being unwell.

These signs often point to an underlying energetic imbalance, indicating that your energy is not flowing as it should.

The Consequences of Ignoring Stuck Energy

Neglecting stuck energy can lead to significant emotional, mental, and physical repercussions.

Emotionally and mentally, it can escalate into heightened anxiety, depressive episodes, and a perpetual feeling of being emotionally strained.

Physically, the correlation between our emotional state and bodily health means that unresolved emotional issues can manifest as various physical ailments, chronic pain, or constant fatigue.

This interplay between mind and body can create a cycle of distress, underlining the importance of addressing these energy blockages.

The Path to Healing Stuck Energy

Fortunately, healing from this state of stuck energy is achievable.

Acknowledging its presence is the first crucial step towards release and recovery.

One of my favorite techniques that I often practice at night before going to bed, is energy pulling.

First, I visualize people and situations throughout the day that may have affected my energy field negatively.

Then, I imagine ‘pulling’ each energetic blockage from those people or situations out of my body.

I envision how I gently return the energy to the person it belongs to, so they can work with their energy.

It is not mine to carry, although as an empath I often feel I have to.

If it’s a specific situation that I’d like to remove from my energy field, I visualize how I ‘recycle’ that energy by returning it to the earth.

There are many pathways to healing, and through Intuitive Guide and Healer Belinda Davie, I have discovered many more incredibly effective techniques, among which theta healing and somatic healing, which we share in detail over in our Ideal Self Membership.
