I had intended to tap on another memory as I was planning the last posting’s tappings. After the last tapping, I couldn’t feel any intensity of emotion on this incident. Now I only can if i close my eyes and try to re-live the traumatic event.
……..I remembered this event to tap on when I went to the doctor yesterday. I was recounting again that I have to sleep in a certain position to drain off mucus in that part of my lung when infected, explained how i have been draining off the mucus in that part of that lung for the past 17 years, and he nodded and said “postural drainage”. Because of the EFT tapping, I was calm, collected, and logical, whilst being insistent and firm. He seemed to be saying “Touche”. I wish it wasn’t like that, didn’t have to be a sparring competition, but hey, it just is. So the name for this coping strategy is postural drainage…………
The event was 16 or 17 years ago. I was by then used to turning upside down, Muslim-prayer-position, and allowing the mucus to drain from that part of my left lung. Sometimes it was too late, and I would be coughing already and wouldn’t stop till way after I had coughed up several bits of bloody mucus. When I was admitted to hospital then unable to breathe, they gave me physiotherapy, in that same position, tapping on my back until all the mucus drained from my lung. They did it twice and the next time I thought they were coming to give me this physiotherapy, I was told that it was policy to only offer it so many times and that I didn’t need it, I had asthma, etc etc etc… I said that it really hurts when I coughed for 2 hours most mornings recently, and sometimes coughed up blood. They said I shouldn’t cough, i must repress it. I asked how and said that I needed to get the mucus out of me, that that part of my lung hurt, kept pointing to it. I was ridiculed and ignored, and it carried on like that.
So here goes:
“Even though they refused me the only treatment that worked, I deeply and completely love and accept myself” 3x on sore spot. tapping on “refused me this treatment, postural drainage, not taken seriously, deemed too young to have this kind of lung damage and ignored, didn’t fit into their belief system so they abused me as they couldn’t cope, they were weak, they couldn’t cope with facts outside their box, outside their comfort zone, silly people, the other people they must have abused too, it just was, can’t change it now, I accept it happened, it just was, they are weak, they can’t help being incompetent, they can’t help being ignorant, being caring and thinking intelligently is outside their skillsets, they haven’t been born with it or maybe it was taken out of them, it doesn’t justify their actions but I choose to let go of this heavy load, I choose to let go of this fear and hate, i give healing to that part of my left lung that can’t expel mucus, love and healing, in my long and healthy life there is no time for grudges, I choose to live my life, really live and enjoy it, I have a good future ahead of me, I am calm and peaceful, every moment is a beautiful bonus, even if I have to lie down kind of on my shoulder all night and wake up with a stiff neck and shoulder, I fix it and carry on to enjoy another beautiful day, it’s a small price to pay and I am happy doing it when necessary, I am contented and calm, I enjoy life.”
The tears are stopping through my smile, I am at peace with the world…
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. — EFT with Me, Suzanne Zacharia, Practitioner — EFT Workshops Cape Town South Africa — EFT low-cost workshop London UK —— EFT Master Practitioner Course UK —— Disclaimer – You are advised to consult with your medical practitioner before embarking on any course of alternative, complementary, or beauty therapy.
