|Hello and Welcome to Tapping
Into Good Health's Spring 2020 Newsletter
I hope this newsletter provides you with a few resources
that you can use to help you through these uncertain and
difficult times. We are all experiencing this pandemic
in different ways and feeling things we have never felt
before and are unable to comprehend. Some of us have
suffered great heart-ache in the loss of loved ones,
others huge stress regarding work, finances, home
schooling. There is a huge amount of fear that spreads
in the same volume as the virus itself. There are also
those who have seen this as "The Great Pause", a time
for healing, reflection, peace from a world's pace of
which we can not keep up with. It is also a time whereby
the world, and all it's glory is healing as planet and
that us humans are coming together in a united love and
understanding that all of us, worldwide, in one way or
another are affected.
I would firstly like to share my poem 'In This Moment',
with the hope that it brings you calm amongst the chaos.
Moment' by Melody Lovell
In this moment, I hear an orchestra playing in the
a myriad of melodies near and far and in all directions.
A loud silence and a peaceful noise.
In this moment, I feel the rise and fall of my chest.
My breath as it goes in and out, rolling back and forth
gentle wave on the sea shore.
I feel electricity dancing throughout my body,
an endless flow with no boundaries or restrictions.
Vitality, visible in my veins.
In this moment, I see a glorious piece of art.
It is not a blur of different colours, nor of shapes
It is a creation of vast detail. Defined. Deep, and
In this moment, I feel the presence of my loved ones.
They are my family, my friends, my wise teachers.
Tenderly they touch me with their warm smiles and
grace me with their love. This, I sense so deeply.
In this moment, I also acknowledge the fear within,
like I've swallowed a black hole.
But, if I hold it with compassion and kindness,
like I would hold a new born baby, it need not possess
Uncertainty is certain. Abnormality is normal.
This moment is not the past of how it was,
nor the future of how it will be.
It is THIS moment, which is real and which is true.
|EFT (Emotional Freedom
Technique) aka 'Tapping' has become quite a popular tool
since the Pandemic began as many are discovering it for
the first time and seeing the benefits it has. One of
the main advantages is that you tap on yourself, at any
time you need it and for any issue. It does not require
you to go to a clinic and you don't need any equipment.
EFT has been proven to lower the stress hormone Cortisal
in our bodies, and although it doesn't bring back loved
ones, or solve our financial problems, it does allow us
to not sink deep below the water.
If you haven't experienced EFT before, you can visit my
'Basic Guide to Tapping'. https://melodylovell.wordpress.com/2018/04/28/a-basic-guide-to-tapping/
However, there are a few things you may like to do
differently when tapping on your self during such heavy
times, rather than tapping on something that is just
bothering you, as described in my guide.
Using EFT, what to tap on?
If you are tapping on yourself on a big issue, it is
beneficial to just be tapping on the physical sensations
you are experiencing rather than the thoughts or
feelings you have. You may feel a heaviness on your
shoulders or tightness in the chest for example. Or, you
can tap on images in your mind. Choose a specific thing
that is upsetting you and put an image to it. Not a
disturbing realistic image but an image that may
represent it, and set no limits to your imagination.
After a round of tapping notice how the physical
sensation has changed or how the image has altered. Do
as many rounds of tapping as you need to until the
sensation or image becomes comfortable to feel or see.
In EFT, when we state the physical sensation or image we
see, we follow it with a positive statement such as "I
love and accept myself anyway". You may like to choose a
different type of positive statement during these times.
I personally like to use "I know I will learn something
from this experience". And others have used "My dog is
so happy to have me at home right now", or "this will
come to an end" or "I choose to find stories of great
courage and strength" (which my EFT trainer likes to
use). Use which ever feels true to you and which gives
you a sense of certainty and safety.
If you would like help with this then please get in
touch and I can book you in a session. I'm sure many of
you have now got used to using zoom!
EFTInternational, which is the World's Leading
Professional EFT Association (of which I do voluntary
work for in the Communications team) have created a
YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/c/eftinternational
We are building a number of helpful tapping videos and I
particularly recommend the video by Jade Barbee, an EFT
Master Trainer over in the States. It is really simple
and easy to follow and this video is specific to anyone
with constricted breathing.
Here is a talk on facing your fears by Tara Brach,
clinical psychologist and spiritual teacher. I find her
words to be very powerful and comforting and I will
often turn to a Tara talk for some added reflection and
healing when it is needed. https://www.tarabrach.com/facing-pandemic-fears/
I will sign off for now but please send me an email if
you would like to book a session or have a free 15
minute consultation over zoom and tell your friends
about me too. Email email@example.com. You can
also follow me on Facebook
where I offer advice and support and share
information about EFT.
Sending you love, light and strength.
