Is my pain physical or emotional or both?

Is my pain physical or emotional or both?
As you continue down the path of practicing Meditation and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) tapping to support you with your health and well being, you may have already enjoyed the amazing benefits of pain relief with this practice.
Thank goodness for EFT!  It’s simply magic.
If you have yet to try tapping or have yet to truly integrate it into your self-care, now is the time to begin.
Pain relief is one of the simplest and most effective applications for EFT.
When I first learned tapping, it was for relief of really nasty chronic back pain.  I tapped every day for two weeks and the pain was gone!  Really. It’s never come back, except briefly last summer, when I changed my exercise routine.
Yes, it scared me and I tapped and went right back to the strength training exercises that had been working for me.  Within three days, the pain was gone.  Yay!
You may also have discovered that pain is not simply physical.  Often we have strong emotions, memories and beliefs associated with the pain.
This is significant.
It can be effective to ask for clarity in your Meditation and then tap on the information that is revealed about the SADNESS, ANGER, FEAR OR FRUSTRATION that comes with the pain.
Simply say, “All this sadness”, or “All this fear”, as you tap around on the body points.
Then check in with your physical symptoms and sensations.  Most often you will gain relief, clarity and ease with the physical pain.
Remember to add CHOICE STATEMENTS to your final round as you relax and let go of the pain:
“I now choose to relax and let go.”
 
“I choose to accept this healing now.”
 
“I give thanks for the comfort and ease that I feel.”
 
And practice a little bit every day to really see results.
May this practice help you to be a healthier and a happier you.

A True Story of Forgiveness

A True Story of Forgiveness

When I was 17, my best friend stole my boyfriend.  Yes, it’s true!

I have been listening to the Tapping World Summit all week and during one session, I focused on healing a current relationship with a dear friend.
When I asked, as we are encouraged to do, when I’ve felt this hurt in the past, I zoomed back in the space of awareness to being 17 years old.
I was a senior in high school, having a wonderful time.  I loved school, I was dating a terrific guy – we’ll call him Mike.  My best friend – we’ll call her Jane – and I would go often to Huntington Beach and life was good.
Then, suddenly I wasn’t hearing from Jane or from Mike.  My heart was broken.  I was hurt, confused and lonely.  Didn’t celebrate my graduation or enjoy the summer with my friends.  Very painful time of my life.
When I connected with this memory, I realized that I’ve had a pattern of friends disappearing out of my life for years.  I thought this related to the loss of my relationship with my mother – and perhaps it did relate.
Now that I have clarity about this pattern and the event that may have set the pattern in motion, I can tap on the memory, forgive my former best friend and heal the pattern of loss in my life.  Ahhhh…
