Mucle-testing and EFT injury treatment

I am tapping, stretching, and doing remedial exercises for an injury I exacerbated when I ran my half-marathon. It consisted of my left knee and right hip. My left knee is almost back to normal function and no longer hurts. My right hip feels much better but still needs work. Three weeks ago, I was sitting in my Cape Town clinic in-between clients and decided to muscle-test for which muscles, bones, tendons, or ligaments were involved. I started with just around my right hip and from my left knee down. If you are new to muscle-testing, it is a technique from Kinesiology and involves using a muscle for bio-feedback of what is wrong. I used my anatomy and physiology book and a simple finger muscle to test. The following is a list of what came up, which I decided to tap on until all symptoms went, or until I felt like testing again to see what remains and what else needs healing.

Right hip:

  • Sacrum and coccyx
  • Gluteus maximus
  • Gluteus minimus
  • Obturator exrernus
  • Piriformis
  • Deep transverse perineus

From the left knee down:

  • Patella
  • Poplitial fossa
  • Popliteus
  • Tibialis posterior
  • Plantaris
  • Patellar ligament
  • Extensor hallucis longus
  • Extensor hallucis brevis
  • Extensor digitorium brevis
  • Metatarsals

I am tapping now on this list, one by one. Whenever I tapped on it before, I ended up falling asleep. This is what tapping on physical root causes does to me. It’s a good sign, as it only happens to me when there has been a shift. I am using this simple tapping procedure.
Setup
“Even though I have this challenge with ………., I deeply love and accept myself.”
Reminder
“……………..”
The ……………. is the body part above. I am also getting my anatomy and physiology book open in front of me, so I can see where this body part is and connect to it better.

Two hours later, I am now finished! I had to take a break in the middle. My legs jumped about when I got to the toes and their muscles. And I can feel my backside relaxed on the right like it has not been for months. This is the first time that I have lasted the whole list. Interestingly, I can see from my anatomy and physiology book what improvements I have made that are related to this tapping over the last 3 weeks, and it is very encouraging.

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.

EFT for taking too much inhaler

I was struck by how much inhaler I was taking. Two weeks ago, I suddenly ran out and had to ask my spouse to go at the last-minute to buy me more. I realized that I was taking one inhaler a week. Now, for me, anything that helps me survive and heal is good, and this is way under the amount of prescription and OTC medication that I used to take in my worst days, years ago. But it is still way too high.

One of the reasons for taking too much inhaler was the way inhalers have changed. The non-CFC kind does not quite reach that part of my left lung which tends to get blocked. And so I was driving it in by 3 consecutive sprays, which I knew were too much. I know that if I use the reliever inhaler too much, it will make my breathing worse. So I tapped;
“Even though I tend to take too much inhaler, I choose to take one spray only, I deeply love and accept myself”.

I could visualize myself taking just one puff at a time. But then, I got a feeling of breathlessness and panic. So I tapped, making sure to also tap with my whole hand down my ribs in a straight line from my UnderArm point, to help my lungs and spleen:
“Even though the thought of just one puff makes me panic, I deeply love and accept myself”.
The panic started to dissipate, but there is one worry on my mind that remains. I do hypnosis, as it is very popular here in Cape Town with people that either do not know EFT or are too traumatized to consider it as yet. And when I give hypnosis, I need my breathing to be as near perfect as possible. I usually would have taken 3 puffs before each hypnosis session, so that I would not cough in the session or run out of breath for clear speech. And I remember a time when I did not do that. Then, all of a sudden, I got a coughing fit in the middle of a client’s hypnotherapy session. As I think about that session, I get a 3 out of 10 in intensity, fear, and panic that I might do it again. So I am tapping:
“Even though I had a coughing fit…”
I feel more relaxed. The intensity of feeling is a 2 out of 10. So I tap:
“Even though it can be disruptive to a client session, the one and only time it happened was over 7 years ago. Once in the 9 years I have been giving hypnosis does not mean I have to fear it recurring. I deeply love, accept, and forgive myself.”
Now, the fear that it will happen again is down to a zero,and my breathing is easier still. What remains is a 1 out of 10 of guilt for that client session 7 years ago. So I am tapping…
Setup
“Even though I have this guilt, I love, accept, and forgive myself, and I forgive anyone else who may be involved in this.”
Reminder
“This guilt.”
I tapped on many other issues as they came up. And now, it is all a zero. I feel absolutely totally relaxed and wonderful. I am aware that my left lung could be more expanded, but I am not panicking about it. I know that I have to wean myself off taking excess amounts of inhaler, and that it’s a process. I feel remarkably calm.

Gym Motivation And Couples Argument Release, All With EFT

My spouse and I, like any other couple, started to argue earlier today. And specifically just before going to the gym. And I was panicking in fear of missing my precious Sunday Yoga class, so I was responding in a way that was escalating the argument. But somehow, I managed to quickly tap as I continued arguing, tapping on my CollarBone as fast as I could. Well, in about a minute, I went totally quiet, and the argument soon petered off. I finished my self-healing with a quick blast of Reiki and baby-blue healing for my throat chakra.

Next came the Yoga class. As usual, I tapped through some of the poses, in order to allow myself to stay in the pose and relax further. I had developed a problem with my right gluteus muscles, hip flexors, and others (I muscle-tested for them two weeks ago and will publish my self-tapping on these when I finish). And so the associated Yoga poses were painful. My right hip again was a problem. Again, as in a previous posting, I feel it is the provider in me. The right side of us energetically has to do with a male in our lives or the male side of us. I still am earning too much less than my spouse, and I was worried about it. Of course, I know the situation will get better next month, but that is logic. We are talking about emotions here, which are not necessarily logical. So I tapped whilst in the pose. I tapped mainly on the Top of Head point and said in my mind things like ¨Even though I have this lack of money in those muscles, I deeply love and accept myself¨ and ¨It hurts, ow, I accept myself¨. The whole area around my hips eased, not just the part being stretched.

I left the Yoga class to join the spinning class. I was a bit tired, but this was one of my favorite instructors, and I didn´t want to miss the opportunity to enjoy a spinning class. I think it takes a certain talent to do a spinning class, and most of the instructors, although excellent in other classes, simply just cannot quite get this one right. And so I did the class although a bit tired. The challenging parts were when we had to do a breakaway (going really fast). I managed them by tapping whilst counting the seconds till the end of the breakaway. I actually rubbed, rather than tapped, with my Thumbs and Index Finger against my gym towel, which was on the handlebars. And so I did the class and enjoyed it. Next came my run. I was due to do a 13-minute interval run today, which I did with ease. Well, the first part of it is what usually gets me – the warm-up. This is when I usually tap something like ¨Oh my God, I´m gonna die¨ as I run. This keeps me running despite the challenge to my left lung, and it soon manages, and I am then breathing fine. I actually rubbed here rather than tap. I rubbed the Thumb and Index Finger and the Thumb and Middle Finger of both hands together as I did it. I also tapped as I was coming up to a sprint, to stop myself from doing it too soon, which would have meant that I would have struggled to recover afterwards. I left the gym feeling amazing. My only regret is that there was no time to go into the sauna afterwards.
