Wow I found out what people mean when they say they want to stop eating! I am running a Reiki workshop today and writing on a break. Earlier, I had put peanuts out for my attendees, after which they went out to lunch. I could not take my eyes or thoughts off the peanuts and kept eating them and topping them up. Every time I thought I could stop eating, I found myself reasoning “just one more bit”. So I started tapping: “Even though I have this peanut desire…” No change. I ate some more, and they still tasted delicious. I was not physically hungry, though, surely. So I tapped again: “Even though I need this protein…” No change. “Even though I want this salt…” No change. “Even though this reminds me of when my beloved bought me peanut butter…” The taste started to turn bitter in my mouth. After a few rounds, I did not want any more peanuts for now. Success.
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.
