I have had a weird 3 days. I had planned my Friday, Saturday, and Sunday meticulously, giving myself a perfect balance of a little work, great classes at the gym, lots of sunshine and freedom, and plenty of rest, with a nice interlude of having my mother-in-law over for dinner. And then, my spouse, who works from our home, got news that the boss was coming on Saturday. That meant that I had to spend Thursday evening and all day Friday cleaning and tidying up. Don´t get me wrong, he´s absolutely lovely, but a boss visit is a boss visit. By the time Saturday arrived, I was too exhausted to go to the gym, especially as the massage I had intended to give my spouse on Thursday, which helps stop snoring, had to be shelved in preference of cleaning, and I had a disturbed sleep most of Thursday and Friday night with the snoring sounds. By the time my in-law visit arrived, I was exhausted and spent, and could not steer a difficult conversation properly and got drunk instead. This morning, I got up too groggy. I did however analyse the conversation with my spouse, and we figured out why it was so tense, all while tapping on the Collarbone. But I still felt depressed. Finally, my spouse gave me a lift to the gym, the only way I managed to get there in that mood. I did a Yoga class, which was luckily easy. Still depressed, I went into my next class, a spinning one.
I struggled in the spinning class. I tapped but nothing was really working. And then I got a brainwave. I´m preparing to present a Chakra Colour Healing Workshop when I visit London next year, and I thought, well, why don´t I follow my own advice?! So I started…
First, I asked myself where I had the depression in my body. It was in my Solar Plexus, which was no surprise, given the visits and disruptions were like an invasion of my own ego, will, and self, however good and well-meant. So I started tapping:
“Even though I have this depression in my Solar Plexus, I deeply love and accept myself”
I kept tapping, using my thumbs against the handlebars and imagining the colour yellow in my Solar Plexus. Within a few minutes, the depression left my Solar Plexus, going to my Heart Chakra. So I tapped again:
“Even though I have this depression in my Heart Chakra, I deeply love and accept myself”
I kept tapping, imagining the colour green in my Heart chakra, and within about a minute, it moved to my throat, then it got stuck at my Third Eye and Crown for about 4 minutes, but I persisted in this tapping, Chakra by Chakra and colour by colour, till it cleared. By then, the last of “O Fortuna” was playing, getting to a crescendo, as I then balanced my chakras with a colour visualisation. All were balanced except my Sacral and Root chakra, and so I tapped to aid the visualization. Suddenly, I could visualize all my chakras bright and healthy, all the right colour, and the depression had completely lifted, all in time for the perfect end – the last bit of “O Fortuna” – WOW!!!!!
I know it sounds silly, but I´m so glad I listened to my own advice – I feel good now – calm and motivated. I plan to get up early and run before my first appointment tomorrow.
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.
