The effects of stress on health are far-reaching and important.
To the hand, the field might seem jagged, discordant, or spiky, or you might feel a kind of "static"in the field. You might feel areas where the energy just doesn't seem to be flowing or even. If you touch the physical body, you might feel the impact of these energetic disturbances manifested in clenched, compacted muscles.
Prolonged stress, both from its physical and the energetic effects, can make you vulnerable to illness. It also accelerates aging. Over time being in a chronic state of stress response can cause high blood pressure, heart disease, ulcers, autoimmune diseases, cancer, anxiety, insomnia and depression.
Stress is inevitable, and moderate, short-term stress can actually be good for us. But learning to manage stress so that it doesn't become overwhelming or go on for a long time is critical to maintaining our energetic, physical, emotional, and mental health.
