The last week or so I have been writing about the chakra’s and a little about what area’s of our bodies, minds and spirits they give energy. This energy is available to all of us and in order to tap into it and have a healthy life, you sometimes need to unblock this energy. While living our lives we can lose site of the connections to this energy and it becomes blocked. Unblocking it is not unlike acupuncture, without the needles. There are meridians that are tapped into with your finger instead of a needle while you talk about the block in that particular area of your body, mind or spirit. This is used to alter the negative energy to a positive energy. These meridians are located on your face, the top of your head, a space under your arm where your bra would go if you were wearing one and just below your collar-bone in the hollow space. There are eight points to tap. This is supposed to tap into something called Chi and reverse your neurological system to reverse the negative energy and give rebirth to the positive energy that will keep us happy and healthy. Sometimes this energy has been negative for a long time and will need you to do this more then once. If your root chakra is blocked you should start with the first. The root chakra can become blocked in childhood because that is where our foundation is and where we will need to unblock most of what we need to change about our beginnings. In order to do that you will need to give away what you have no control over so you can replace it with the positive. The following link will help you to do just that.
I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist. View all posts by dtoomey2015
