EFT and the Power of Forgiveness

In 2005, right after a number of years of chronic pain and all the misery that goes along with that, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. My rheumatologist’s remedy was to right away medicate me. I was prescribed an antidepressant, two discomfort killers, and one thing to help me sleep at night. Admittedly, I did get some relief from the medication. However, with fibromyalgia you nevertheless have poor days. And at times you have extremely negative days.

Becoming a person who likes to have manage of my own life and my own medical care, I attempted a conversation with my physician to discuss achievable remedies that might help to improve my condition. My medical doctor offered me no hope at all, and reminded me that fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that I would have all my life, so I ought to accept it and get employed to it.

There was no element of me that was prepared to accept that statement.

I right away set out to analysis possibilities, and during that analysis I found EFT. It seemed like an improbable and highly unusual resolution to my issues, but I was willing to give it a try. Following all, I had nothing to shed. I downloaded the PDF version of the EFT manual, and read it from cover to cover. I then ordered Gary Craig’s training DVDs. By the time that I had completed all the education DVDs, I was ready to get to function.

My initial achievement had to do with tapping for job pressure, for which I located fantastic relief. Subsequently I tapped for headaches, stiff necks, sore backs and injuries that I suffered in a fall. As every problem was resolved, I was much more and more convinced of the really true results of tapping, and how regularly I could get those outcomes.

Even right after all the hours of videos that I had watched, I still was to some extent coming from a place of “It can take place for other people, but not for me…”, so that was exactly where I started my tapping.

I tapped away my doubts and moved on to the genuine organization at hand.

My belief was that my fibromyalgia was a response to my highly stressful work circumstance, so I began there. I was already tapping on issues like my micromanaging supervisor, my CIO who practiced management through fear and intimidation, and the total lack of appreciation shown for all my tough perform. I continued to address those concerns, even though also tapping individually on discomfort in my legs, arms, back, shoulders, neck and so on. I identified that I would get some temporary relief, but ultimately the pain would return. I convinced myself that it was a matter of patience and persistence, so I tapped on. My outcomes, even so, did not differ from my earlier outcomes.

Other particular concerns came up during my tapping that I felt may well have contributed to my difficulty. I had an problem with feeling protected, and worked on that. I also had a lifetime of “mom issues”, possessing been the child in the family members that was never good sufficient. Lots of time and power went into working on those problems. In spite of my persistence with tapping, although, there was no considerable improvement in my outcomes.

I was becoming more and more discouraged. When you are in continual pain, it becomes the concentrate of your life, and I badly wanted to move beyond the pain, but that just wasn’t happening.

I pushed by way of the discouragement, although, and went back to tapping on my mom concerns. There were many crisis scenarios in my life in which my mother had emotionally abandoned me, and for which I still felt anger. As I focused on these conditions, I intuitively felt the require to incorporate forgiveness into my tapping. Now, as I worked through the issues, I completed my setup statements by saying, “and I deeply and entirely adore and accept myself and I decide on to forgive my mom”.

Along the way I realized, even though, that I necessary to forgive myself even a lot more than I required to forgive anybody else in my life. I had several issues in my life for which I felt responsible, whether or not I knew logically that was correct or not. I necessary to face those items and unconditionally forgive myself, in order to release all the energy I had invested in self blame and guilt.

As soon as I started to do this, I could feel a distinction in the outcomes of my tapping. Far more power was moving, outcomes started coming much more quickly, and finally, the discomfort started to ease! Such as forgiveness in my statements made all the difference for me. The lack of forgiveness, both for myself and other people in my life had been blocking me from moving in the direction that I required to go with EFT.

Practically a year down the road, my condition has improved tremendously, thanks to the power of EFT. I am now completely off all discomfort medications, and although I nonetheless have a bit of discomfort at times, it is effortlessly manageable with tapping. The discomfort that usually kept me bedridden is gone, and I now ride an exercising bike every single day to strengthen my legs and assist with my mobility.

For me, there was an critical lesson learned in this process. I had my personal agenda, and knew specifically what I wanted to do. What I had failed to do was to drop inside my personal head and listen for the messages about how I required to go about the process. The moment I stepped back and listened, and got the loud and clear message of the value of forgiveness, I was able to unleash the full power of EFT.

I would strongly encourage everybody to step back and listen when operating on their own healing. EFT practitioners working with clients are encouraged by Gary Craig to “get out of their personal way”, and I really feel that it is every single bit as essential if you are working on your personal to listen to your inner self and spend consideration to your intuition in order to get the guidance that you require, and to be able to get pleasure from the full benefits of EFT.
