In the same way that a rocket won’t go anywhere without fuel, the same could be said when it comes to a human being. Without energy, they won’t be able to even lift a finger, let alone take action.
Howerver, while a rocket will just need one type of fuel to get moving, a human being will need more than one. The first type of energy that they will need is physical energy; this is what will allow them to move.
Just Part One Part
Having this type of energy will allow them to move their body, to walk and to run, and to do all kinds of other things. Even so, physical energy alone won’t necessarily allow them to live a fulfilling life and to achieve their goals.
For this to take place, what they will also need is emotional energy. This is what will give them the support that they need to take the first step and to keep going when they hit a road block, so to speak.
One way of looking at this would be to say that their physical energy will represent the masculine, whilst the emotional energy will represent the feminine. The former will get the ball moving and the latter will provide them with the support that they need to hang in there.
These two energies are then there to give them everything that they need in order to thrive. When these two parts of them are working together, there is no reason why they can’t live a life that is worth living.
Through feeling supported on the inside, they won’t be dependent on the emotional support of others. They will be able to take in and appreciate this support, but it won’t be something that they desperately need.
And, as they don’t have a strong attachment to it, they may find that there are plenty of people in their life who are emotionally supportive. It can also be normal for them to offer the emotional support that is within them to others.
If someone like this has ever lost touch with the inner nurturing element within them, it may have been because they experienced a break up or lost a love one. During this time, they may have felt empty or even numb.
The outcome of this is that the emotional support that was usually within them would have more or less disappeared. They would then have had the physical energy to do things but the emotional energy wouldn’t have been there.
A Different Scenario
For some people, then, experiencing life in this way will be just how life is; for others, it will be very different. Someone like this is going to have the physical energy they need, yet they won’t have the inner support that they need.
Or if they do, this part of them is rarely going to be online and it won’t be there when they need it most. Being this way could have an effect on their physical energy too, with their being moments in their life when they find it hard to do anything, even though they are physically able to do so.
Still, although this can be what takes place when someone doesn’t feel emotionally supported, they could end up relying on another type of fuel. What this mean is that they will try to do everything through the power of their will.
This can mean that they will spend a lot of time trying to force things and this can lead to a lot of struggle. The energy that is fuelling their life will be coming from their mind, not their emotional body.
A Long Way Down
If someone like this was to experience a setback and this had a big impact on them, they could end up hitting rock bottom. They will have emotionally collapsed and it will be challenge for them to rise up again.
Their mind will be out of the way and this will have exposed them to what is taking place at a deeper level. This could be a time when they feel powerless, helpless, worthless and even suicidal.
Trying to make everything happen through force is going to be incredible draining, but at least it will allow them to avoid the pain that is them. One is then going to be like a machine that never stops.
The part of them that causes them so much pain is the same part that could give them the support what they need and allow them to take their foot of the gas – by losing touch with this painful part of them, they also lost touch with the part of them that could support them. Being supported by the emotional part of their being and not trying to force everything will most likely be better for their health and it may be easier for them to achieve things.
A Deeper Look
Irrespective of whether someone is out of touch with their emotional support and is emotionally numb or if they are in touch with this part of them and it is not very nurturing, it can be due to what took place during their early years. This may have been a time when they were abused and/or neglected.
The emotional part of their being is going to carry the part that they experienced at this time of their life, and this is why this part of them is unable to provide them with the support that they need. Disconnecting from this part of them will allow them to avoid this pain and being in touch with it will be anything but pleasant.
If someone can relate to this, and they want to embrace the emotional support that is within them, they may need to reach out for external support. This is something that can be provided by the assistance of a therapist or a healer.
