I am delighted to say that I did 4 full laps in the pool within only a few minutes. This is a big feat for me with my lung.
Well, I knew I could physically do it (kind of knew). Three-quarters of the way through the first lap, I got scared I would’t have enough breath. I somehow managed the rest of that lap but felt I could not go on.
So I stood in the pool and tapped on my Below Nipple point (any point will do, if you are unfamiliar with it):
“Even though I’m scared I won’t have the breath, I accept myself anyway”
This got me through to another lap. Then I felt done. But I couldn’t get ourt after only 2 laps! And i was in a hurry, there was no time to waste catching my breath. So I tapped:
“Even though I’m scared I don’t have enough oxygen…” Then I realised I need more carbon dioxide, not oxygen! And I finished “I will have enough carbon dioxide anyway”
Needless to say, the rest was easy peasy 🙂
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.
