To lay the scene… Hard at work with an unrelenting (though mostly enjoyable) schedule, I woke up extra early so I can go for a run and to a class where I can be stretched and relaxed. All good and well so far. I made my class first with 5 minutes to spare and was looking forward to it.
This new teacher was a very negative person, and this is me being kind 😉 She just couldn’t help herself. She kept saying how the pose we were currently on was so hard, suddenly making it seem hard. If that was not enough, she said how she had argued with her teacher because one pose was so extra hard. Suddenly, that felt harder. If that was not enough, she kept using explicit visualisations that could easily be misinterpreted. My mind took one of those visualisations when I was in an energetically-open situation, trusting, and wham, it hit me! I reacted immediately with horror and said “Oh my god what a horrible thought!” whilst shaking that awful feeling off my body.
But determined to do the class for the benefits it does my body (to counteract the stiffness that running can bring about), I stayed, decided not to be open or trusting, and to practically continually tap. I tap by rubbing two fingers together – very effective. I did benefit from the class and do understand the teacher was not a bad one at all. Far from it. However, after the class, I felt very tearful. I was so upset, I didn’t want to do my run. So I promised myself that if I get onto that treadmill, I can listen to my favourite music while tapping on the situation more completely and get it out of my system. So, I started running to the music and tapping (rubbing two fingers together) as I visualised what I really would have liked to do if I could. Now I would never ever do that. It was a fantasy. So here goes…
I was punching her face with my bare fists protected by a cloth wrapped round my knuckles. Her blood was flying into the air. (Still tapping continuously)… I could smell it and was trying to avoid it getting in my face, but I couldn’t stop. Still tapping continuously, I allowed this fantasy to develop… Deeply disturbed by the negativity bringing me down, I wanted to shut her up in any way I could… (Still tapping continuously)… With superhuman strength, I prised her jaws open and broke her jaw… (Still tapping continuously)… I kept pushing, into her brain from the inside somehow… (Still tapping continuously)… Her eyes… (Still tapping continuously)… I saw the life starting to leave her eyes… (Still tapping continuously)… And suddenly – it stopped! She was immediately restored to life and floated like a gentle wave in front of me, floating away, with a barrier always between us. (Still tapping continuously)… I tapped for the shock of what I had just visualised. (Still tapping continuously)… Then the vision developed into me smiling happily, outside her class, doing other things in the gym, having a good time. She was inside her class, happily being negative and enjoying her life the way that was right for her. She was surrounded by people who liked her. I was happy to see her happy. I was happy to be in a separate world from hers. I was at peace, and so was she.
Finally, I stopped tapping when I finished my run. I am at peace.
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. I run for my lung health, to keep improving. 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.
