I recently began working as a Marshall in a large organisation, the job came about on a whim really as I needed the company and cash! As I began this new job I realised how starved of human contact I had been for a time but I had a tool in my back pocket! I had EFT Tapping with me.
When I first was taught about EFT it was in the context of reversing the polarity of any given issue or problem. My teacher at the time could see that I was conflicted and suggested repeating these statements whilst tapping on my hand. These statements were
"Even though I hate myself and I'm sticking to it!"
"I deeply and completely love myself and I know that I am loved unconditionally".
I complied and felt this movement of energy as I spoke the phrases and then accepted what felt true and released what was not true. This simple process of movement and language that I was being taught felt wonderful and I began showing my own clients as part of my existing practise.
Anyway, back to the job, this job was a relief from a bit of a low period for me and also allowed me the space to practise EFT outdoors whilst interacting with lots of people through the winter months. The subtle tapping I did on my karate chop supported me as I welcomed people and showed them where to go and where to park was simply amazing. Every interaction allowing for eye contact and brief language amongst the fresh outside of the British winter months on the Bath Gold course where I was working.
I have been seeing clients for EFT sessions for over a year now and moving through various issues and challenges for each client or couple. But to use EFT in such a subtle way within my own life felt almost 'James Bond' like as if I was a non-verbal spy supporting the movement of energy using EFT as my 'fancy car' tool. I say this as a long standing friend of anxiety and over thinking. EFT really brings me into the moment and helps me befriend my anxiety and therefore access my many gifts as a human being.
I am sensitive and generally work with highly sensitive clients and sometimes we cannot comprehend the lengths to which these sensitivities can stretch. Our perceptions can take over and all we can do is move, whether that be through tapping or shaking or through simply being aware of our breathing.
Where are the boundaries? And how do they feel to press up against? In fact, for me, boundaries are wonderful and allow for closeness and intimacy on a whole new level. Boundaries are the places of connection, I have in the past certainly avoided setting boundaries to then see that my body is capable of being fluid within these guidelines we set between each other. After being out of any sort of close sexually intimate relationship for quite a while after recovering from what felt (at the time) like a very toxic relationship, tapping has helped release stuck energies in my daily interactions. So I can begin to explore intimacy in all its forms once again, knowing that I have the 'James Bond' tools of tapping to support me in this exploration once again.
Using EFT Tapping whilst on the job has been a vital tool for me and I feel just reassured that I have this knowing within my body now. This knowing that however subtle a movement, the habit of movement is healing to allow for life to flow in all its forms. EFT has allowed me to feel more grounded and also has supported me to getting back to reality through the pandemic.
