Every now and then, the physical closeness of someone wearing what I call “fly spray perfume” irritates my respiratory system. I have tried finding out what it may be but never got round to it. The other day, a woman passed me in the street and I got this uncomfortable whiff of “fly spray perfume” and EFTed it by rubbing my finger points and saying:
“Even though I have this fly spray perfume feeling, I deeply accept myself.”
And then it hit me: It DID smell of fly spray! It DID remind me of fly spray!
I asked myself to find an incident, an event, to do with fly spray, and a bundle of events came up. I asked myself what SUDS I had on this bundle and it was 3. I was surprised I had something left from that period of my life, as I had thought it had all been tapped out of my system. Anyway, I resolved to start working on it when I had the time. So later on, when I had the time and place, I started tapping on the Gamut point, doing the Eye Roll and saying:
“Even though I have this fly spray trauma, I deeply accept myself.”
Then, all of a sudden, I was saying and reliving a particular (though hazy) event:
“I am eight, fly spray, dangerous, they are saying it’s dangerous, they are saying not to breathe it in, I am eight…”
It went down to a 2. Then I was interrupted by a phone call and left it there.
The next day, on my way to the clinic, I remembered to tap, so I rubbed the finger points together on each hand as I walked, saying “fly spray, this reaction to fly spray, this fly spray trauma”.
The SUDS went down to 1.78 (crazy number, I know, but that’s what I got, and I’m not questioning it, it’s not an exact science, I just go with the flow).
As I think of the event, my aunt Eva was wearing a light lemon dress or maybe a blue dress, more likely a lemon shift dress. Judging by the style, it is the 1960’s, so I could be 8, although something tells me 6 years old or so. Tapping now…
Setup on Sore
“Even though it’s dangerous, Eva only is trying to protect me from pesticides, it’s not the perfume that’s bad, but I don’t know it, I’m only 6. I don’t understand, I’m only 6. Perfume=Pesticide. Raid [brand of fly spray]. Eva is saying to stay away because she is spraying Raid. That’s OK, I’m safe now. She protected me.”
Reminder on all points:
“Raid. ‘Stay away from the Raid'”
Then Reminder on all points:
“I feel like crying. I feel like I’m just waking up from a terrible nightmare. I took that warning so seriously. But then it was dangerous to be exposed to many sprayings of Raid a day. It was appropriate to be scared and repulsed by the Raid then. I didn’t know about fly paper then. Only Raid. Same for my family, they didn’t know. They only knew Raid. I can smell Raid [tears]. I can feel Raid.
[I’m less afraid now, no longer crying]. [Big sigh]. [Deep breath, big sigh].”
Still tapping, I feel very tired all of a sudden. I am letting go of a heavy load here. Sitting back in chair, more deep sighs… Still tapping… Yawning
Tapping still, Reminder:
I can see the yellow and black Raid spray can.
“Be careful”, my aunt is saying. Yawning…
SUDS 0.63 and 0.42 at the same time. Probably two different aspects.
Now 0.5. How weird! To be continued later…
Now over 2 weeks without needing lung medication, the longest time since mid-1987 🙂
When you have a chronic physical condition, anything that either emotionally or physically has a negative impact on you can make the condition worse. EFT is one way of throwing away the emotional rubbish collecting in your system. In the same way that we dispose of our household rubbish regularly for home cleanliness and hygiene, I use EFT to dispose of negative emotions for my optimal physical health.

Check out my new confidence program made when I got much better than at the time of this post. This post seems like such a long time ago. I am so glad I don’t suffer like that any more 🙂 See videos of me on the page of this link and see for yourself how much EFT has helped me with my health. Thank you for reading this post and your patience with some of the database corruption from when the site went down once. And please share with someone who needs it 🙂
