Hi Everyone,

We find with great frequency that unresolved negative emotions and experiences show up in the body as pains or diseases. Once these are truly resolved with EFT, however, the physical symptoms often subside. Sudesh Shetty from India gives us some pointers along these lines.

Hugs, Gary

The saddest part about negative emotions like fears, anxieties, guilt, anger, suppression is that you are not even aware that they exist and are gnawing away at your body.  When I stumbled upon EFT, I found a way of releasing hidden negativities which otherwise would taken a long time for me to discover.  

Using this technique I could release fears and anxiety stored in my scalp, knees and various parts of my body.  The body is willing to cooperate. It wants to heal. It wants to release.  All we have to do is facilitate this healing process.  We like to measure what was there (issue) and what's not there now (healing) to convince ourselves that a technique/therapy works.  Why wait before something becomes a problem for you?  Why not use EFT to keep your system clean always?

There are countless experiences that happen to you all the time which you may not remember but nevertheless affect your emotions, your body and your energy field.  Television has become a national pastime today but the kind of stuff they show, complete with graphics and background score, is enough to send shivers down the spine.  Watching a bomb exploding, a car crashing, a person being beaten brutally or dead bodies strewn all over the place after a terrorist attack are experiences that gets lodged in our system very subtly and breed in our consciousness only to trigger panic attacks, anxiety disorders down the line.

Similarly, loss of near and dear ones, heartbreaks, losing to colleagues at the workplace are examples of experiences which impact us greatly and we seek help only when these show up as problems.

Needless to say, when experiences become problems how cruel life can become, how much we suffer.  You might be thinking, “I agree with you but is there a way out?  How can we stop experiences from becoming problems?”

Using EFT, experiences stored in your energy field can be balanced and thus stopped from breeding and manifesting in the form of chronic issues.  These are usually stored in various parts of your body and it's always a good thing to lie down and connect with the parts of your body, talk to them and do some tapping.

Here's an EFT technique I would like to share to release these trapped experiences which you may not be aware of, but which greatly affect your energy system.  I am choosing the Heart area to describe the technique.

1) Lie down; relax yourself by gently breathing for sometime until you feel very comfortable and peaceful.

2) Now focus your attention on your heart, if your mind wanders, gently bring it back to your heart.  Feel the rhythmic movement of your heartbeat.  Do this for at least 5 minutes.

3) Now, keep your attention lovingly focused on your heart, start tapping lightly on your "personal point" (Your personal point will be one of the points used in EFT where you experience the maximum release/relief when tapped, my personal point is under the eyes).  Keep tapping lovingly without having any expectations.  (You do not need to use any statements; the important thing is to be one with your heart and keep tapping).

4) Continue focusing on your heart lovingly and tapping simultaneously.

5) You are now stirring the experiences trapped in your heart.  Your mind will start wavering more or wandering more.  Be aware that the thoughts that come at this point have some connection with the experiences trapped in your heart.  Write the thoughts (issues) that come up on a piece of paper and number them.  Do not write them in paragraph form because that's how trapped emotions and thoughts are stacked up together in your system so you always find it difficult to make sense what the real problem is.  Be specific, number them and write them separately.  For example: Angry thoughts about your husband's behaviour and an event in your childhood where your classmates made fun of you and you felt mad, may come up together … don't stack them … write it separately.  Keep tapping with one hand keeping your attention focused on your heart while writing.

6) If you have nothing left to write, continue tapping with both hands.  As emotions start coming up and getting tapped, you may experience choking up or crying - allow it.  Your body may or may not allow release of all the locked energy as it deems necessary for it to cope with the healing that day.  Do not exert or force.

7) Feel if you want to tap more or want to stop for the day.  Be gentle and aware of what your body says.

8) Now, close your eyes and visualize green color filling your heart and surrounding it.  Green is the energy of healing.  See your heart healing with the natural color (green) we see everywhere.

9) Now, end the exercise by visualizing pink color filling your heart and surrounding your aura.  Pink represents positive emotions like love, compassion, kindness etc.

10) Thank the body for co-operating in this process.  Relax for some time closing your eyes and whenever you feel comfortable, you may gently open your eyes.

You are now empowered to release experiences from your body.  Take each body part systematically for example shoulders, scalp, knees or prostate and use this technique for unlocking and releasing negative energy from that part of your body.  (Substitute that part instead of the heart in the above technique).

Have fun releasing all the unknown/unwanted clutter from your body. My heartfelt thanks to my EFT mentor Jasmine Bharathan who opened up my mind to be creative with EFT.

Thanks & Regards,

Sudesh Shetty
