If you're interested in learning specific exercises
to correct common energy-flow problems and to balance and maintain your
energy, go to "Battery
Problems." Meanwhile, here are a few common-sense guidelines
for looking after your body's energy systems.
1. DRINK WATER! At least 6 to 8 glasses
a day. Dehydration is a primary cause of energy system dysfunction.
Meridian energy flows through body fluids. Hydrate!
2. Feeling energy-depleted or exhausted? You can try a jump-start with
"The Three Thumps,"
but consider self-care. Take a break! Relax and rest! Time for a snack!
3. Feeling extreme physical/emotional tension? Fast shallow breathing?
Clenching hands? Sweating? Debrief with someone. GET ACTIVE to help
you to use up adrenaline - walk, jog or bike ride. Use the "Over-Energy
Correction" for centering and grounding. Focused breathing
helps to relax, so click on Cultivating
Calm for relaxation exercises.
4. Certain substances and chemicals can disturb the human energy field
causing "allergy-like" energy-toxic reactions. Hair care products,
cleaning and laundry agents, and medications are frequent culprits.
EFT and TAT may help
with this problem. Go to Energy Testing Yourself
to learn to test for what suits your energy system, or doesn't. For easy-to-do energy testing techniques, my manual, Divining Health: A Dowsing Approach to Emotional Freedom, is an excellent resource.
5. Electro-magnetic fields can also disorganize the human energy field.
Microwave ovens, computers, TVs, cell phones, and high-tension installations
cause some people to feel energetically scrambled. If that sounds like
you, try to avoid lengthy exposure. If that's impossible, ask an energy
therapist about techniques to desensitize yourself. It's even possible
to harmonize the frequencies of the toxic field to your personal energy
6. The natural polarity of the body is easily disturbed, especially
by fearful thoughts and situations. In case that's the case, focus your
attention on your breath, breathe deep into your center, then massage
or rub your collar-bone points deeply. (Also, see The
Three Thumps). For more information about body polarity, click on
Polarity Reversal, or consult the "Problems of Energy Polarity" section in my energy self-care book, Feeling Free!
