Listening to that voice in our head supports us in our successes or it can be relentless – reminding us of what won’t work. Typically it’s our decision maker.
So the old saying goes that which we teach is what we need to learn. I’m not exempt. I was having bad dreams. These dreams included hashing and rehashing issues – fictitious and unresolved situations - I would wake up filled with anxiety - sometimes several times during the night. Other times I couldn’t shut my mind off. My daily living was affected. What to do?
One of the tools I share with my clients is EFT/ tapping also known as Emotional Freedom Technique. It looks corny and initially one feels even cornier when experiencing the process, however it works!!
Similar to acupuncture, without the needles, tapping on different energy spots release stress, anxiety and many other negative emotions, to be replaced with a healthier positive outcome. An excellent tool!
Early one morning I was lucid dreaming, as if I were an observer I asked why my sleep was being disrupted. A scan divulged the culprit… I have a chronic-worrying-and-anxiety-filled mind unless I diffuse it with tapping – therein the solution – I’d gotten so busy I forgot to tap. It (the negativity) had been accumulating. Gosh.
Typically, using the index and middle finger on either hand to tap the outside of the opposite hand (the fatty part next to the palm and right below the knuckle) named the Karate Chop; thinking about the situation, visualizing it and feeling the emotion(s) is all it takes to diffuse my worries, anxiety, stress and any other negative situations.
Upon collapsing these emotion(s) I conclude with tapping how I want to feel – that is if I’m still awake. (Most generally the results of tapping is so relaxing I return to sleep effortlessly).
Immediately I felt better, my mind was clear and I was able to sort, organize and implement potential solutions to the unresolved issues. With daily tapping, the anxiety and worries were/ are next to nil.
I love being human…
