I was most happy to have this opportunity for a long weekend. To get to the airport we had to go to town by train and then go by underground. When we arrived at the airport I noticed I was missing a bag! Where was my bag? Oh! I had left it in the train … all of our luggage on the left except “my bag” on the right!
My mind quickly made the inventory of the contents …. Reading glasses, newly purchased book, address book, a Nikken magnet newly purchased and valuable for me, make-up bag. I called my daughter and asked her to call the railway company and explain them what had happened. I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. How could I forget to pick up my bag? I started blaming myself, but as our flight was due I was busy with the check-in …. As soon as there was a quiet moment all the images of my lost bag rushed to my mind. Would any one have stolen it? Nowadays, in the crisis situation it would be very probable! As soon as we were sitting in the plane I told myself, “Stop!” and I started tapping:
Even though this happened, I accept the situation and I love myself, I have to keep quiet, somebody will find my bag and give it to the station lost and found office, it’s no use to worry, I can’t do anything anyway. It’s just a material loss , all these feelings for blaming myself not paying attention, why should that happen right now, to me, I should have stayed at home, I shouldn’t have taken that bag and so on!
At this point I felt better but at night in bed my mind started again to play the “whole movie." So, I decided EFT had to prove its value. I continued to tap:
...I choose to let go, not to think about it until Monday, not to worry. I’m alright, I can enjoy my weekend, the people, the good food, I choose to be kind to myself, I’ll have a good rest and on Monday I can think of what's to be done.
I surrendered to the fact I could do nothing. I had left my burden aside and felt relaxed… I had EFT‘s power over my mind and that made me feel secure and at peace.
On Monday my daughter called me saying my bag was waiting for me at the main station!! I laughed and felt gratitude because thanks to EFT I could trust the Universe would help me, I was in the flow of what presented itself! I had been able to enjoy this wonderful weekend in Paris and had the opportunity to experience how great it is to have a tool like EFT to overcome any problem.
