Stuck Energy – Part One: What is Stuck Energy?
This is part one of a two-part series on Stuck Energy.
We are energetic beings and, at all times, energy is flowing to us, from us, through us, and all around us, and this is as it should be…
Sometimes energy flows through us and it feels really good, and maybe we decide we want more of whatever created that nice feeling in the first place. And sometimes energy flows through us and it doesn’t feel so good, sometimes it even feels really bad, and we decide that we’d rather not have so much more of this particular energy.
But, whether it’s a good feeling or a not so good feeling, energy is meant to give us the message it provides and continue moving along.
Eckhart Tolle presents a beautiful picture of this in his story he shares of watching ducks floating on a pond in ‘The Power of Now’
“Even ducks have taught me important spiritual lessons. Just watching them is a meditation. How peacefully they float along, at ease with themselves, totally present in the Now, dignified and perfect as only a mindless creature can be. Occasionally, however, two ducks will get into a fight — sometimes for no apparent reason, or because one duck has strayed into another’s private space. The fight usually lasts only for a few seconds, and then the ducks separate, swim off in opposite directions, and vigorously flap their wings a few times. They then continue to swim on peacefully as if the fight had never happened. When I observed that for the first time, I suddenly realized that by flapping their wings they were releasing surplus energy, thus preventing it from becoming trapped in their body and turning into negativity.”
But, as humans, we can’t always do this, right? Unlike our duck friends who seem to just go with the flow of the moment, we’ve pretty much created a society in which it isn’t always a good thing to just express a particular energy at the moment it arises.
Maybe we don’t wish to anger someone or hurt someone’s feelings. Maybe we don’t wish to anger ourselves or hurt our own feelings. Maybe we’re in a location in which expressing what we’re feeling would draw a lot of unwanted attention. Maybe we’ve been brought up in a family in which it was frowned upon to express emotion and we’ve just grown accustomed to suppressing our feelings. And for a number of other reasons, there are many moments in which we just can’t express what we’re actually feeling at the time, so we push it down, we hold it in, and we try to divert our attention onto something else…and the energy can become stuck.
So, how does the energy become stuck anyway?
Somewhere along the way, we experience some sort of event, large or small, known or unknown. This event causes an energetic response within our body, and, for one of the reasons mentioned above or for any number of reasons, we choose to not fully experience the energetic response at that time, thus, through the process of our resistance to fully experiencing the energy, the energy becomes stuck within the energy system of our body.
And to add to that, cementing the stuck energy even tighter, once the energy becomes stuck, it continues to add to our vibration, and the Law of Attraction obliges us by sending back people, circumstances, and situations that match the vibration we are sending out, thus, activating the stuck energy that we didn’t ever want to feel in the first place over and over again, eventually making us feel as if the stuck energy is just a part of who we are.
Think about this, depending on how long the energy has been stuck, this energy could have been activated an innumerable amount of times, each time, growing stronger and stronger, and feeling more and more like a part of us, like that’s just who we are.
But it isn’t who we are, at all. It only feels that way because we have grown so accustomed to it being there.
