When the body shows serious signs of physical stress and illness it can be within our power to release the emotional blocks which may have caused the dis-ease. I stress I am talking about emotional distress and the release of that distress; not suggesting medical intervention be bypassed.
Quote from short video by Gary Craig the founder of EFT ‘Doctors treat a chemical imbalance with another chemical treatment. Consider the contrasting EFT approach to illness which suggests the root cause of the illness, pain or disease may be an energetic imbalance and/or an unresolved emotional issue eg the guilts, fears, anger we collect over a lifetime which may manifest in the body as illness.‘
This year we have booked a Cat/House sit in Brittany, over Christmas and New Year: Rural Brittany. Daughter is away, son maybe on an Irish Christmas. A good time to do something different! So not Provençal Sunflowers in the summer but the charms of rural Brittany in the winter! (We hope to travel in the early Spring to Asia for a honeymoon.) We are a member of Trusted House Sitters We did a sit last year in the Dordogne. Super. Actually we are having a bit of trouble finding a French animal/house sit for September this year. The site is very popular! So if you know anyone looking for sitters please point them my way.
On a more humorous note please watch and enjoy this wonderful Bob Newhart sketch entitled “Stop it!”.
I just love this comic sketch and all the clever little points it makes.
Enjoy it for what it is please. I take my work very seriously but humour is very good for us.
If we can lighten up, good energy has an open door to come into our life and help us on our road to recovery.
I have made this a short blog to be viewed independently and I am also including it in My Overwhelm AND Christmas Time. blog
Here is a general instruction sheet to go with any of my Youtube tapping videos
If you are not confident about your tapping know how I strongly suggest you read this paragraph before you listen or watch.
The first tapping point is the top of the head To prepare – consider where in your body you feel your stress or overwhelm about your issue. Consider what number of strength this feeling has – between 0 and 10. 10 is very high- you’ll be wanting to run away. 1 means it’s not really a problem so you should consider something else 🙂
We say our repeat phrase on the Karate point 3 x
Tip- if you can’t say, ‘I deeply and completely accept myself’ change it to ‘I like myself’ or ‘I am trying to like myself’
When you are comfortable with tapping do change the words to suit, question where you feel the emotional discomfort and consider the number of feeling. They will alter. It is worth doing this routine for at least 5 minutes, 10 minutes is better. Repeat as necessary.

Consider these 3 starter statements and you will get an idea how EFT can help you re-adjust mindset, and manage stress in a better way.
‘Even tho’ I feel stressed about (fill the gap with your own words or phrase)
I know it need not dictate my day’
‘Even tho’ I still have remaining stress
I choose to release it a little at a time’
‘Even tho’ Stress can trouble me
I choose to manage stress more effectively’
Once stress levels are reduced by using EFT, then Matrix ReImprinting can work at a much deeper level to help discover your ‘trigger’; the big ‘Why‘. The what particular words or particular situation causes an anxiety response.

As I write this blog, I am relaxing in a lovely garden, near Sarlat in the Dordogne. Therapy for a therapist. I was well aware that Herb and I needed a quiet holiday. In May when we were considering, (well I was) holidays this year, it was obvious that although we may be going elsewhere throughout the summer, we would not be really relaxing. In all honesty I remember thinking that I actually was unsure if I knew how to relax any more. Continue reading
