When we suffer a trauma in life, no matter how large or small, it, too, registers on the energetic body as a disturbance in the field. When a trauma is overwhelming, however, we may not register it consciously and instead suppress it. If we do not deal with the trauma thoroughly a residue of it remains in the energetic body as an "imprint" preventing its even flow. If left unattended, disturbances in the energetic field start to distort the field like a giant rock would a river’s pathway. These distortions warp the chakras and manifest themselves as physical and emotional pain in the body. Further, each time a situation that reminds the client of the original wounding occurs the imprint becomes reactivated forcing the client to experience unrelated events as if they were the original wounding. In our culture we focus healing on relieving these physical and emotional symptoms through physical means such as drugs or surgery or emotional intervsntions such as talk therapy and behavioral modification. If the anomaly is rooted in the energetic field, however, and it isn't removed these symptoms, be they psychological or physical, usually reappear until they are disconected from the Lightbody.
We know we have soul woundings when we have repetitive patterns in our lives that we cannot change no matter how hard we try, when we see themes in our lives that we just cannot shake. We all know people who have been in talk therapy or have had reoccurring illnesses for years. They seem to heal with only limited success. This is because talk therapy, pharmaceuticals and chemotherapy don’t remove the original soul woundings causing the distortions in their energetic fields; they just talk about it or treat the symptoms. The basis of "energy work" is removing stagnant, dense, alien or unmoving energy from the body's energetic field and realigning the chakras so they spin properly. Once the woundings are removed at the energetic level physical and emotional healing begin.
