Releasing Energy Blocks
(excerpt from Opening to Healing Energy)


All energy comes from and returns to the Tao. It is like a river that forms at a great sea and passes through a beautiful terrain of mountains, valleys, and other land formations. Sometimes it breaks up into several branches and then recombines, until it eventually pours back in to the same sea. You might say that the river of energy enjoys the whole trip. It is not impatient about returning, yet it is its nature to move. It is not moving merely to return to the great sea; it is moving because it must.

All things seek unity. Bringing peace is not primarily a matter of making people try to get along, but of removing blocks to the natural movement toward unity. There is a growing impetus toward unity now. The blocks that resist it feel increased pressure.

The natural state is one in which there is free movement of energy. Maturity is the ability to let energy move freely at a high level. It is a learned skill. It is one of the main skills you are learning on the physical plane. Every life experience teaches you something about letting energy move more freely or on a higher level. You may not interpret it that way, but you could.

The more freely your energy moves, the more joy you experience. Think of the joy in a young child. He does not yet have a mature capacity to let energy move, but he has few blocks, so he enjoys the energy he has. That is why children are often such a pleasure to be around. To recapture this feeling, it is not necessary to go back. The key is actually to go forward, releasing your adult blocks. If you do this, your joy will be far greater than what children experience because your capacity is greater. You may not be capable of releasing all your blocks in this lifetime, but it is a worthy goal to work toward.

A block is like a piece of fruit: it comes off the tree easily when it is ripe. When it is not, you can pull hard on it and it still might not come off. Also, fruit might not ripen at all if the tree is not nurtured. When you identify a block, you are really identifying a lesson. Lessons last as long as they need to. One “tree” may need much water, sunshine, fertilizer, and pruning before its “fruit” is ready to fall into your hand, but it may be extraordinary when it does. It may enrich your life more from its lessons than another fruit that took less time to ripen. Keep working on your blocks, but do not try to force them to release. Keep loving the parts of yourself that need greater understanding and allow them to reveal themselves to you a step at a time.

Of course, you do not have to be working on releasing blocks all the time. Sometimes you need to go out and play. But spending a little bit of time with them on a continual basis can yield much benefit. Trying to do it all at once, or working on them sporadically, such as when you attend workshops, is less effective than constant care, even if it is only ten minutes a day.
