Everyone should consider his
body as a priceless gift from
one whom he loves above all, a
marvelous work of art, of
indescribable beauty, and
mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate that
a word, a breath, a look, nay, a
thought may injure it.”

Nikola Tesla

If you over water a tomato plant it wilts. Human beings are no different.

First before getting into it. Did you ever have a best friend when you were young? Someone you laughed with and just lost yourself drifting off into neverland at a point in time when you never even imagined yourself to be reading an article like this? I think many of us would like to find a way back to that and also a way to keep that energy forever.

In order to restore this we must first fix or optimize our healing energy or our “Root System” and and the rest will follow naturally. Imagine having a tree, pulling it out of the ground, taping over 90% of its root system and planting it again. It will slowly wither and die being unable to perform many of its natural functions. Many of us have unwittingly done this to ourselves.

OK back to blockages. Often we will see a therapist mention or read material on Psychology where the author talk about Blockages.

Well what exactly are these so called blockages?

I can play back my memory from childhood like it’s a high definition movie and one thing that is very clear to me is that I most likely experienced many of the “Traumatic” things that many of us experience, kids being racist towards me in school, parents fighting and so on.

However as a child anything traumatic simply just bounced off of me. My mind was everything that was happening in the moment and I did not carry any of it with me ever, as my mind would be to busy experiencing and being stimulated by new moments.

If our internal energy is a stream then that stream was on full blast all the time and there was nothing blocking it. No dams, no river otters, nothing. Just free flowing thought and I was in a delightful mood all the time.

So what changed. I went from being super aware and connected with everything at all times to being completely disconnected from all of my emotions and my entire face went numb and my body stopped healing (Had a pulled hamstring for years at a very young age).

I think most of us are somewhere on this spectrum.

So what happened and what does it have to do with blockages?

Well in my view blockages are simply the bodies level of Toxicity.

The more toxic the body becomes, depending on what we choose to consume, the more blockage we experience.

The brain and the digestive system can be viewed as one closely connected organ.

What the blockages are are damage to the body that your energy now has to be diverted to try to fix, and so the less energy your body has to create a great experience for you. It’s gone from creating a pure joyous wonderful experience for you at all times to being a garbage man.

The other things that may seemed deflated besides your sensory experience is creative and analytical focus. If it’s hard to carry thoughts because of lost energy then the intelligence and creative light that is driven by that energy will also take a back seat to the healing that is needed. The speed at which you can learn and know something directly correlates with “Feeling” that you have thought through it and now know it. For babies this comes very naturally and fast. As we do more damage to ourselves this ability deflates.

The other side effect of the “Damage” is us starting to feel like the organism that is damaged. We are not this organism. We are the field that created it and the feelings that we have as human beings (Or lack thereof) come from the this “Creative intelligent energy field” and us loosing connection with it is it attempting to guide us back to a stronger connection with it and if we miss this for a while it will have the reverse effect of strengthening our sense of “Ego” or of us as our “Individual” organism, as silly as this is.

Woman is the origin of man.

— Alan Watts

What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. The world is given to me only once, not one existing and one perceived. Subject and object are only one.

— Erwin Schrodinger

I think we very easily underestimate how much damage some of the things we choose to consume is doing. Initially our body is phenomenal at “Dealing with” everything we throw at it. So much that we grow overconfident and after a while the body simply throws in the towel. And this can be years or decades later leaving us confused as to how we got here. With a needle prick we know right away. With internal damage from consumption choices the frog is boiled slowly.

I’ve written more about this in these articles and how I healed my body (Vision, lungs — no more allergies, hearing, essentially every body part…).

The ways of liberation are of course concerned with making this so-called mystical consciousness the normal everyday consciousness. […]. It has nothing to do with a perception of something else than the physical world. On the contrary, it is the clear perception of this world as a field, a perception which is not just theoretical but which is also felt as clearly as we feel, say, that “I” am a thinker behind and apart from my thoughts, or that the stars are absolutely separate from space and from each other. In this view the differences of the world are not isolated objects encountering one another in conflict, but expressions of polarity. Opposites and differences have something between them, like the two faces of a coin; they do not meet as total strangers. When this relativity of things is seen very strongly, its appropriate affect is love rather than hate or fear.

― Alan W. Watts, Psychotherapy East and West

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Albert Einstein
