Have you ever really thought about whether you were present in time?
Are you living in the here and now? Or in the past?
Do you live a life of regrets?
Do you have sorrows and pain that you can't break free from?
Are you struggling with your weight and why you over-eat?
"Take comfort, I have overcome the world." ~Jesus
"As a man thinks, so is he." ~Solomon
It takes great determination & courage to live in this moment not allowing the past to haunt us or to determine who we will be.
Courage: "strength in the face of pain or grief"
I learned a practice over two years ago that helps me to remain grounded and present. It allows me to just let it go...whatever "IT" is.
I put EFT off for over 6 years (because I couldn't explain it)....of course it's weird and I threw it in that bucket of weird stuff! (and let's face it....believers in Christ have LOTS of hang-ups over weird stuff!!!! "WE" tend to be some of the most stressed out, unloving, unforgiving, sick people on earth. Really? I don't think that's how Christ intended his Church to live.)
EFT; Emotional Freedom Technique. It's such a simple way to allow yourself to be free from your baggage. Some call it Tapping.
It's merely tapping meridians (Chinese Medicine) and repeating statements, affirmations or prayers. I do it both ways. Sometimes I'll tap before I eat making sure my body is in a good place to receive foods that could potentially kill me, all the while saying a prayer asking The Lord to open my body to receive the foods that I am about to feed it. Other times I'll allow something or someone to upset me....perhaps a memory...we all have them. I'll tap it away until my breathing is calm and well balanced. I can usually tell just by my breathing how I'm doing......of course it's been that simple fact of life that has almost killed me 3 times.
I always tap before going to sleep. I think it helps to clear my mind so I can relax and let it all go. And sometimes if I have an area of meridians that are very tender and sensitive, I will concentrate on that area. Many times it's the top of my head.
This is a great video with Nick Ortner explaining the "science" behind EFT/Tapping. He goes through a lesson on tapping correctly.
Wo....and another area of life to use Tapping in is The Law of Attraction! I know. Sounds weird. But The Law of Attraction is SO true.....in fact I would go so far as to say, Jesus taught the first lesson in The Law of Attraction.
Our emotions are made of energy. If it weren't true then why does stress cause heart attacks and strokes? Why do trapped emotions cause depression? Trapped emotions are killing us, keeping us from God's perfect plan for us.
Tapping helps you to release that which is keeping you from reaching God's best for your life. It could be your health, your emotional life, your ability to forgive, your ability to succeed in business, your ability to LIVE completely!!!
Go ahead and give it a try. Do you have panic attacks? Do you have asthma? Do you have pain from illness? Go ahead I dare you to try Tapping it away!!! Don't get hung up on what affirmations you say or prayers you pray. Just tap into your inner self allowing the Holy Spirit to unveil to you what needs to be removed, replaced, revitalized. If your mind goes to something when you are tapping...go with it. Begin a new affirmation, prayer about it.
Happy Tapping!!! Carpe Diem!!!!
