At first I found it odd that after a time of making consistent healthier choices that I would experience internal pain & suffering. This didn't seem to make sense.
I have become aware that the blockages in my energy field need to be fed in order to be sustained.
As I make higher vibrational frequency choices of mind, body and spirit, I reduce the old patterns of feeding the blockages the low energies that sustain them. And this is what causes them to flare up.
