This morning, I walked to the gym then started on the bike for 15 minutes, taking it easy on not usually anything more than 80 spm. But, my spouse had promised me to put a great piece of music on the iPod and it was only then that I discovered it was not on there, after promising myself it to listen to at the gym all the day before. So I tapped on that on the bike, but it was not enough. So I went to the toilet and tapped for about 5 minutes properly things like:
¨Even though I´m bitterly disappointed, …¨
I tapped it down from an 8 to zero and then went up to the treadmill. After a few minutes, I started feeling breathless, so I walked while using my Buteyko exercises. At the same time, I tapped with my Thumb points on the bar of the treadmill, although I usually just rub my Thumb with my other finger points while I run. There was no need for words. The feeling was one of panic and ¨I can´t breathe¨. It soon passed and the exercises worked.
Then I started my second run interval. It was supposed to be 3 minutes. At the beginning of it, I remembered my daughter´s advice to run on the road too, and, planning to do it at least at the end of my 8-week beginner´s training (leading up to running 30 minutes straight) , I panicked thinking how on earth would I manage to run half an hour straight on the road. I tapped as I ran thinking about that. Again, no need for words, I just let the thoughts come to me as I rubbed my finger points together. And then, a strange thing happened. I watched the clock go past 3 minutes. I was feeling fine. Then it went past 3 and half minutes, four minutes, and then I made myself stop running at 5 minutes. It was so very easy! I am sure it was as a result of tapping on my fear of running half an hour straight. I did one more stint of 5 minutes in that session at least.
I also did some Buteyko exercises whilst rubbing the finger points during each walk. At the end of that session, I was breathing very easily and continued to do so for hours afterwards 🙂
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. My health was not always as good as this. Please go back to around 2005 on this blog to get to the worst postings, if you are looking for how to tap for those really bad days of health.
