My spouse and I, like any other couple, started to argue earlier today. And specifically just before going to the gym. And I was panicking in fear of missing my precious Sunday Yoga class, so I was responding in a way that was escalating the argument. But somehow, I managed to quickly tap as I continued arguing, tapping on my CollarBone as fast as I could. Well, in about a minute, I went totally quiet, and the argument soon petered off. I finished my self-healing with a quick blast of Reiki and baby-blue healing for my throat chakra.
Next came the Yoga class. As usual, I tapped through some of the poses, in order to allow myself to stay in the pose and relax further. I had developed a problem with my right gluteus muscles, hip flexors, and others (I muscle-tested for them two weeks ago and will publish my self-tapping on these when I finish). And so the associated Yoga poses were painful. My right hip again was a problem. Again, as in a previous posting, I feel it is the provider in me. The right side of us energetically has to do with a male in our lives or the male side of us. I still am earning too much less than my spouse, and I was worried about it. Of course, I know the situation will get better next month, but that is logic. We are talking about emotions here, which are not necessarily logical. So I tapped whilst in the pose. I tapped mainly on the Top of Head point and said in my mind things like ¨Even though I have this lack of money in those muscles, I deeply love and accept myself¨ and ¨It hurts, ow, I accept myself¨. The whole area around my hips eased, not just the part being stretched.
I left the Yoga class to join the spinning class. I was a bit tired, but this was one of my favorite instructors, and I didn´t want to miss the opportunity to enjoy a spinning class. I think it takes a certain talent to do a spinning class, and most of the instructors, although excellent in other classes, simply just cannot quite get this one right. And so I did the class although a bit tired. The challenging parts were when we had to do a breakaway (going really fast). I managed them by tapping whilst counting the seconds till the end of the breakaway. I actually rubbed, rather than tapped, with my Thumbs and Index Finger against my gym towel, which was on the handlebars. And so I did the class and enjoyed it. Next came my run. I was due to do a 13-minute interval run today, which I did with ease. Well, the first part of it is what usually gets me – the warm-up. This is when I usually tap something like ¨Oh my God, I´m gonna die¨ as I run. This keeps me running despite the challenge to my left lung, and it soon manages, and I am then breathing fine. I actually rubbed here rather than tap. I rubbed the Thumb and Index Finger and the Thumb and Middle Finger of both hands together as I did it. I also tapped as I was coming up to a sprint, to stop myself from doing it too soon, which would have meant that I would have struggled to recover afterwards. I left the gym feeling amazing. My only regret is that there was no time to go into the sauna 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. 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.
