Stretching after a workout is now also an opportunity for me to EFT whatever stresses I am experiencing. This is what I did the other day.
I started with my hip flexors. As I leaned into the stretch, I asked myself what emotions can be stuck there. The answer that came to my mind was inflexibility, as I have been presented with quite a number of inflexible challenges lately. So I rubbed acupressure points at the hip (taught to me by a client) as I said in my head “Even though I have this inflexibility in my life right now, I deeply love and accept myself”. As I rubbed, I felt my hip joints loosen as I felt as if a huge weight was lifted off me. I did some more, tapping the BelowNipple points as I stretched. The BN is my personal favorite, followed closely by the Gamut point. Nothing special about them except that they really do it for me personally. You may have personal favorites or you may not. Either situation is OK.
I then moved on to a stretch for the bum and my poor tight Piriformis on the right. I guessed this was due to financial pressures, as I have earned way below what my spouse did this month. So I tapped on the Gamut point as I closed my eyes and also did the Eye Roll several times as I said something like “Even though I have this financial inflexibility in my life right now, and Ouch! It hurts… I deeply love and accept myself”. That kept me in the stretch that otherwise I would have gotten out of too early.
I finished off with a tummy stretch and came back home feeling amazing!
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. I call an emotion anything that your mind or body says to you, from fear to constricted airways. My health was not always as good as this. Please go back to around 2005 on this blog to get to the worst postings (when I was often bed-ridden, unable to breathe enough to get out of bed), if you are looking for how to tap for those really bad days of health.
