I got a knee injury. So I set forth tapping for the pain, doing stretches, strengthening exercises, low-impact training, compression, etc, and it was gradually getting better.
Then today, as I was at the gym doing yet another low-impact cardio workout and tapping, it just popped into my head why I got the injury. OK, so this was my weak knee, and OK, it was prone to trouble, but I got this latest injury on the day of the Two Oceans Half-Marathon that I was supposed to be initially running. If you have been following my progress, you will probably remember that this is the race I had decided I was not quite ready for, and that I had chosen the Darling Half-Marathon instead, a less formal race a month later. Well, on the day of the Two Oceans half, I was out training, and some youths made fun of me, making remarks about Two Oceans and that I had wandered off the track. I did not realise at the time just how deeply hurt I was. As soon as I realised it today, my knee suddenly stopped hurting, and I wanted to run again. I kept tapping on the incident until zero. And then I closed my eyes and vividly imagined it to test if it was really gone. I then heard one of those teens in my mind saying “Two Oceans” sarcastically, in that teenage-boy voice. It was a 3 out of 10. So I kept tapping as I remembered the voice. Then I closed my eyes and tried to vividly imagine it again, and all I saw was fluffy balls of white cotton wool instead! It was gone. I went to the treadmill and ran 2.23 km.
I will increase gradually and carry on with the knee care. Apart from a tiny bit of soreness in some positions, the pain has gone. Like magic!
By the way, my breathing is doing wonderfully with all this training. Roll on the 21st May, the day of my first half-marathon.
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.
