Signs of Energy Overload - September 2018

Energy Overload

By Laurie Bartley

Many times, people come to me to help them ease their physical pain. I choose to work in Integrative therapies, because I feel there is value to each, and the combination that works for each specific situation will vary. I am writing this article from the singular viewpoint of Therapeutic Touch in regards to energy work.

 Therapeutic Touch is an intentional, compassionate direction of energy to create balance in the flow throughout someone’s energetic field.  Whether the symptom someone is wishing for ease from is a sore throat, a headache, muscle spasms, or post-surgery care, it’s important as a practitioner to be aware of the signs of energy overload, and to be vigilant for indicators of it.  It could even occur in the practitioner, if he or she is not sufficiently grounded and allowing the throughput of energy in their own body.

Rest assured there are ways to help clear the excess energy. Should any discomfort occur when someone is providing you a session, always let your practitioner know so he or she can make the necessary adjustments.

You may even notice the signs of energy overload in your everyday life. Do you find yourself experiencing any of the following in a busy place, such as a shopping mall or theatre?

  • Dizziness
  • Tunnel Vision
  • Shallow breathing, or hyperventilation
  • Flushed cheeks
  • Headaches

Overload may also show up as a temporary increase in pain, itchiness, burning, or any other sensation you already had before entering that environment.

It is caused when too much energy is concentrated in a specific location, or when we are not releasing as much energy as we are taking on.   The solution is therefore to guide the excess energy to flow away from the area of concern, and to ultimately balance the energetic flow within and through your entire body.

A practitioner would clear energy away, sometimes starting with clearing the area beneath it to make a path for the excess to go to.  If you are by yourself when you feel signs of energy overload, I suggest creating a visualization whereby you can modulate the flow of your own energy.

One of my favourites is what I call the “Tree Visualization”.  Imagine that you are a tree, with your head and arms as the branches, and your torso and legs as the trunk. Your feet are the base of the trunk, where the earth meets the tree. Feel your feet planted firmly on the earth. Envision a gentle breeze blowing to create movement.  Imagine yourself engulfed in sun rays, shining on every part of you, as if in a spotlight. Make the temperature exactly perfect for you.  Not too hot, not too cool – exactly perfect. Now grow roots down from your feet – deep, deep down into Mother Earth, and out as wide as you desire. Feel yourself deeply rooted, and release energy through your roots down, down, into the earth. She gladly receives this energy – all of it.  You will never have too much to release. Visualize that the suns rays are filling you with new, positive, and ongoing energy that will always be available. Welcome it, and feel it entering through your head, filling front and back right to the center, from every direction. Let it fill your entire body, starting at the head, and moving down through your neck, shoulders, arms, and out your fingers, while simultaneously feeling it in your chest, ribcage, midsection, hips, thighs, knees, calves and shins, ankles, to the tops and also bottoms of your feet, where it is released once again to the earth.  Repeat this as many times as you wish, knowing that there is no lack of reviving energy, and concentrating on releasing through your feet and fingers until you feel more balanced throughout your body.

 In health and vibrancy, Laurie.

Wellness Tip
Adequate Water Intake
Adequate water intake prevents your body from overheating. It is also required for normal metabolism. By the time you feel thirsty, you may already have lost 2% or more of your body weight in fluid. At 4%, loss of both strength and endurance can occur. A recent Institute of Medicine report stated that women on average would need just over 11, eight ounce cups of water per day (from both liquids and watery foods), men just under 16 cups. If you are very active or live in a hot or dry climate, you likely need more.

Recipe
Barley Salad with Fresh Vegetables
Category: Salads
Description: This summer salad combines barley, a great-tasting grain, with fresh vegetables. Flavored with mint, parsley, garlic and lemon, it might remind you of tabbouleh, a Middle Eastern dish traditionally made with bulghur wheat. Barley has a wonderful texture, and parsley has carminative (intestinal gas-relieving) and diuretic properties, making it an excellent tonic ingredient. Look for the flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, which has a more pronounced flavor than the curly-leaf variety. This dish makes a healthy alternative to the usual picnic or potluck potato salad. Try it as a light meal all on its own, or as a wonderful accompaniment to other dishes.
