It is autumn in Cape Town. I live by the sea, where the fresh sea air is lovely. However, right now, the cold makes the fresh sea air like ice in my lungs, especially my left lung, which has the breathing challenge. So, I had to go downstairs to put the clothes out on the line. I was actually trying to avoid that, but our neighbour who smokes (who is a lovely person otherwise, I must add) was in, and I didn´t want to put my wet gym kit on the balcony only to find it reeking of smoke in the morning. Mind you, it is unlikely that this would have happened, as it is rather chilly for going out to smoke in this weather. But I wasn´t taking any chances. So downstairs I went…
And then the cold humid air hit my lungs. So I tapped, my favorite tapping, rubbing the finger points together, as I said:
¨Cold humid air, I deeply love and accept myself¨.
I did this throughout the time I was downstairs and as a result, did not need my inhaler. I even went back up via the stairs rather than the lift. It was easy!
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.
