So I went in the swimming pool for the first time since COPD got the better of me in July and August last year. At least that’s what I think, I may have gone once or twice since, but maybe for a lot less time. Now, this is a neat EFT trick to use whilst swimming the Crawl:
Get your fingers side by side and then gently let them slide by each other, stimulating the finger meridians with intent. Say in your mind whatever cheerleading ditty you feel is right for you.
So I tapped (rubbed) as I would swim a length saying in my head “Suzanne 1, COPD Nil”. That was for the first lap. OK, I had to rest in-between laps, but I managed 7 that way (“Suzanne 7, COPD Nil”). Then I stopped and tapped:
“I’m scared I won’t be able to do 2 laps in succession, but I can do it, Yes, I Can”
“Scared to do 8 and 9 in succession”
I tapped until my belief and fear that I could not do laps 8 and 9 in succession went from a 10 out of 10 to a zero out of 10. Then I swam, “Suzanne 8 and 9, COPD Nil”, rubbing all along.
I made it! Then I did some arm strengthening exercises (my spouse critiqued my swimming to tell me what I was doing wrong, at my request). Handy having a near-ex-Olympic swimmer for a spouse 🙂 And then I lost count of the further laps, but I think I managed 13 in the end.
No matter what is in your way, you can do Something to better yourself with EFT. I hope this has inspired you 🙂 I am so proud and happy!
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.
