As a practitioner develops a wide range of abilities in working directly with energy, the way the new energy resources are invested is in clearing increasingly more subtle levels of obstacles. The potential difficulties encountered in energy work appear to be endless, ranging from physical to emotional and mental ones such as pride, inflated ego or intensified self-importance. If not made aware, increasing powers can easily be deviated toward manipulating others and forcing our way through the world. The practices which are originally intended to clear obstacles and promote union, through misinterpretation, become a means of furthering division and the negative emotions which arise through the mind of separation.
At this level we go over a long list of potential mistakes which practitioners can stray into in the most innocent manner, once certain powers have begun to manifest through sustained energy work.
