(Keep in mind, I'm working on a human model, because that's what everyone teaches, and my background is in Tai Chi, so this will have a slight Chinese energy system bias to it.)
Sounds like chi blockages to me. It's usually a result of physical or emotional trauma. Theoretically, you should be able to extend your will inside even inanimate objects, like a sword, or some other external tool. So, not being able to extend it through your own body does indicate a problem. This is something similar to what I was describing above, just a different variation on the idea.
Anyway, energy/chi should be able to flow throughout your body through energy channels. Sometimes the chi stagnates and blocks the channels for various reasons. If the channel is blocked, then chi is not flowing properly to those areas. They usually recommend a water or fire meditation to find these blocks and get them to clear up. Water is the more gentle one, fire can be a real pain. Guess which one I went with? Lol, never the easy one, so don't do it my way!.... A word of warning, when clearing chi blocks, whatever caused the block in the first place will be brought back up to the surface so it can be cleansed from the system, so if it was an emotional injury, guess what...what went in must come out. Not fun, but ultimately worth it I believe.
