Hi Everyone,

Note how Kathy Foulser's persistence naturally brings up many issues "behind the scenes" of this problem. She starts her article with, "Recently I woke up one morning and felt the familiar symptoms of a new cold: scratchy throat, stuffy nose. This inevitably means 5-7 days of misery."  I make comments within the article that may enhance its use.

Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Recently I woke up one morning and felt the familiar symptoms of a new cold: scratchy throat, stuffy nose. This inevitably means 5-7 days of misery. On the way to work I decided to try some tapping, even though I've never had much luck with EFT for my physical issues. GC COMMENT: Many people don't have much luck with physical issues because their aim tends to be toward the symptoms of the problem ... not the underlying causes.  Such is the case in this article.  As a result, the benefits are often temporary or partial  Fortunately, Kathy discovers this later in this article as she discovers that she needs to aim EFT at something more foundational.  I used the standard EFT tapping sequence, starting with the karate chop point for the affirmation. I tapped on:

Even though I have this scratchy throat, I love and accept myself completely and I'm ready to let it go
Even though I have this stuffy nose...
Even though I'm going to get sick...
Even though I know I'll be miserable for a week.

After several rounds of each, there was no change. This is where I usually give up when trying EFT for physical issues. I decided to keep going this time. I have some old issues I've worked on that I assumed weren't totally gone and were contributing to my being stuck, so I tapped on:

Even though EFT never works for my physical issues...
Even though EFT works for other people but not me...
Even though other people can get their needs met but not me...
Even though it's ok for other people to have needs but not me...
Even though other people can have miracles but not me...

Still no change in scratchy throat and stuffy nose. But I noticed an old familiar feeling that I have never been able to accurately describe; it's similar to feeling lonely and alone, but not quite. The best word I can come up with is "bereft." I've done a lot of work on this feeling and was a bit surprised to see it surface again. I tapped on:

Even though I feel bereft...
Even though I feel lonely and alone...

Then the feeling started to get more specific. I tapped on more old issues that I apparently haven't cleared completely:

Even though God doesn't love me, I love and accept myself completely and God loves and accepts me completely.
Even though I'm not loveable enough to get healing miracles...
Even though I don't get miracles because there is something different about me...
Even though everyone else is a child of God and is completely loved but I'm not...
Even though everyone else can create healing from God's love but I can't...
Even though the Law of Attraction works for everyone else but not for me...

GC COMMENT: It may be even more useful to get deeper by bringing up the Specific Events behind these issues. These are often more foundational and closer to the true cause.  Properly done, the results would likely be quicker and longer lasting.  See Uncovering Specific Events - An Essential Concept Within the EFT Tapping Process.  

This all took about 15 minutes. I arrived at work: still no change in the cold symptoms. I went inside and immediately got busy with work issues. It wasn't until several hours later that I noticed all the symptoms were gone!

That "inevitable" 5 days of illness never happened. Ten days later I'm still healthy.

My lesson of the day: PERSISTENCE!

Kathy
