Tomorrow, I am back at the gym after a month+ relapse due to a wood barbecue, being with smokers, and a chest infection to boot (the former weakened my immune system so I got the latter). Today I went for a long walk on the beach. It was not easy, but I did it. Just now, I was doing some stretch and core muscle exercises on the balcony in the sun. I like doing this for about 10-15 minutes when I can’t get to the gym. The sun was lovely, and there were no barbecues outside – ahhh heaven! I also did my Buteyko breathing exercises (find out how you can do these in the link below about Asthma and COPD).
I rubbed my finger points together whilst doing my Buteyko exercises and it helped me carry on. During the stretches, I noticed the inside of my left shoulder blade was very tight. As an energy worker, I know this means fear, so I started tapping on current fears.
“Even though I have this fear of not paying the rent on time with clients’ money drying up at this time of year, I deeply and completely accept myself”
Even though I have this fear of [my spouse] not getting another contract very soon, even though I have been the main breadwinner for months now, I deeply and completely accept myself”
“Even though I have this fear that I cannot pay [a creditor] on time, I deeply love and accept myself”
“This fear” , “Fear under my shoulder blade”, “[the creditor]”, “Fear”
And then it occurred to me that last year this time, I had to pay my rent late, and that it was OK. It occurred to me that if the worst came to the worst, I will be paying my rent a day or so late, and that’s not bad. The tightness left my shoulder.
I stretched some more. Now there was another tightness on the left. So I repeated the above tapping. I remembered that I can negotiate with the creditor, be honest with them and that I had planned to do so if necessary anyway. So I feel a bit better about it all. And all the tightness left my left shoulder.
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.
