What Are Energy Pathways?


When viewing the human body from a holistic standpoint, especially in Chinese medicine, our internal body looks like the grid of a map, with intersecting pathways and roadways that lead from one point to another. These pathways are what drives our life force, or qi (pronounced "chee"), and it is through these pathways that our energy easily flows for that life force. There are different points along this roadmap that the energy flows through, called meridians, that also connect to the different organs in the body. When the body is in alignment, the energy flows effortlessly through the meridians, throughout each organ, giving you a healthy body to live life through.

Let's use a river as an example. The river has freely flowing water that carries energy with its constant movement of water. The river is your energy pathways, and the water is your qi.

Following me so far?


So, what happens when the pathways become blocked?

How do they become blocked?

All great questions, and in holistic medicine, we address the blockages in a number of ways, depending on the individual and the life they lead.

When your energetic pathways are in alignment, your qi freely flows, just like the water in a river, and your body is in a state of EASE. When blockages occur, when something like a boulder forms in the river and blocks the flow of the water, everything comes to a halt and gets re-routed, causing DIS-ease in the body. Blockages are formed when we have unresolved emotions and feelings, when physical accidents happen, when we carry unaddressed trauma around, when we lead a stressful life in stressful environments, when we fuel our bodies with toxic foods, along with other reasons. When a blockage happens, it will manifest in DIS-ease in the body, such as physical pain (neck pain, chronic headaches, back pain), skin conditions (rashes, eczema, rosacea, acne), or chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, and a number of other neurological symptoms.

When we walk around life, not addressing serious traumas, not healing physical accidents, pushing down and suppressing big feelings and emotions, your energy pathways are BOUND to become blocked, and just like a river, if a boulder blocks the flow of the freely flowing water, the water might back-up and begin flooding the surrounding areas, causing damage to the areas that the water doesn't belong. When the energy gets blocked, it can almost resemble a stone...ever go get a massage and you can feel that massive knot? That right there is stagnant energy....blocked energy that became stuck in your energetic pathway due to some sort of trauma.

Living an aligned life, that eliminates as much DIS-ease in our bodies, takes time, awareness and some solid wellness practices and healing modalities. I have been in a state of DIS-ease a good majority of my life, and even to this day, I have blockages that I need to address and heal. We ALL have them, but if you do not understand the energetic human body, it will be hard to truly get the root of the problem and begin healing from that level.


There are MANY ways to address your blocked energy pathways, and here is a list of a few ways that I have personally tried that I highly recommend:

  • acupuncture

  • chiropractor

  • reiki

  • massage

  • breathwork

  • NET (neuro-emotional technique....HIGHLY recommend and SUPER incredible!)

I am always looking to expand my knowledge in energetic healing modalities, and I know there's quite of few techniques that I have not listed that I would love to try, so if you have any techniques to add to the list or you are reading this and you're an energy healer or practitioner, please comment and share what technique you use and how it works.
