Blockages in our energy systems in the body can occur for many reasons and over many years. Energy gets blocked by negative emotion, poor nutrition, an unhealthy environment, changes in the weather, injuries and medication.
Negative emotion is a huge factor in the health of our body. It has been shown that negative emotions cause changes in the communication between cells, their physical structure becomes distorted and vital hormonal messages do not get through. There is an imbalance between the top and bottom halves of the body. A simple change in emotion, thoughts of happiness, joy, gratitude, cause instant shifts in body chemistry, more communication between the cells of our body and a more balanced system.
