Seductive Sugar

Sugar is such a mixed baggage of yuck!  And at this time of the year it makes it especially difficult to try and avoid for everyone.

So I am going to confess.  I was trying to figure out what to write tonight.  I don’t normally have a brain block.  Well life has been full (probably too full) and I was struggling with a thought.  I posted on FB idea suggestions.  And I received lots of great ideas.  And the one that really stuck out for me to write about tonight was SUGAR!

It is that time of the year that everyone is going to start really struggling with it.  It is going to be EVERYWHERE!

Now for me…

Growing up sugar was almost equated to “sin”, “evil”, “bad”.  My parents knew it wasn’t good for us but they just didn’t know how to really express it and reinforce it in a healthy way.  So for me unfortunately it was another thing that added to my baggage of dysmorphia and shame….especially if I chose to eat it away from them.

I fortunately don’t really crave sweet things.  My cravings are salty, creamy, cheesy….lol.  But I do love ice cream and chocolate.  And even though I will find some really great vegan and sugar free options just the sweetness can trigger me into feeling like I am doing something I am not suppose to be doing.

The problem with sugar period…set aside any of us who have an emotional tie to it….it physically IS addicting!  It messes with our hormones.  It messes with our insulin.  Which in return messes with our emotions.

How can we overcome any shame and “ick” with it!?  Keep it simple….especially this time of the year!  So many of us try to replace the candy and pies with alternatives that are “healthier” versions but they can still create emotional baggage.

Instead enjoy LOTS AND LOTS of fresh fruit and veggies!  I am totally serious.  The more we reach for these the better we will feel.  Don’t be afraid to enjoy all of these.  And truly keep it simple.   Just cut them up.  Crunch is wonderful and satisfying.  And its actually quite healing!  I also use lots of different essential oils to either soak my fruits and veggies in or just in my water to help me with cravings and add some fun flavors.

We can get stressed during this time of the year with family.  When our hormones and emotions are out of whack it can make things even worse.  It can cause us to feel even more shame, hurt, frustration….you name it!

Some tricks I use especially during the holidays but year round when it comes to sugar:

  • A note in my frig that says “what do I really want?!”
  • Lemon and orange essential oil at eye level in the pantry. 
  • Pausing to ask myself “what am I FEELING right now?”
  • Will I feel shame?
  • Drink 2 glasses of lemon/peppermint water instead.
  • Remind myself I love myself too much to go through the roller coaster ride.
  • Remind myself I love my family too much to put them through emotions.
  • Remind myself: I AM A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT….to be honored and respected!

But the biggest and best thing to overcome sugars seduction….keep it out of the house!  We don’t have it in the house.  And anything we have that is made with natural sweeteners I ask the above questions to myself.

What is your relationship with sugar?

Sit with this….pray about it…write….oil…and tap….I am truly serious :)!  This seductive “drug” needs all the tools in our tool bag to resist.

Oh but finally…..if you do give into it…..don’t shame yourself….love yourself….give yourself grace and know that you can start all over that very moment!!!!

Because GOD LOVES US NO MATTER WHAT!!!

Many drops of blessings and prayers dear one!

Healing Crusader

Through this healing journey I have read many different healing stories: physical, spiritual, emotional… about Hashimoto’s, traumas, abuses….

Many of these warriors of healing are fallen away Catholics. 

This is unbearably sad for me.

There are many who leave other denominations as well.  But these are many of the reasons I have heard:

  • I didn’t have a personal relationship with Christ.
  • I didn’t feel welcomed.
  • It was too black and white.
  • There was judgment.
  • I didn’t feel accepted.

The list goes on….

And it breaks my heart!

I’ve been described as:

“She’s not your typical Catholic.” and “You won’t believe she’s Catholic.”

This is funny to me…but it’s true….and it’s also sad…..sad to me that more people haven’t encountered and/or experienced an Evangelical Catholic.  It’s sad to me that wounds, hurts, and differences have kept Catholics away or even driven them away.

The Catholic Church is not perfect…not by any means. No faith is!!! And this is NOT AN EXCUSE FOR ANY CHURCH TO BE ABUSIVE TO THEIR PARISHIONERS!

For me the Catholic Church  has a richness and depth and beauty that I can’t imagine being without it in my life.

Now you might be thinking I have never been hurt by the church or had a bad experience; so I can’t possibly know.  But actually I HAVE had plenty…

  • A priest once told me to come back to confession when I had real sins to confess.
  • Another ended confessions before I had my turn and said he didn’t have time for me…literally.
  • I have felt the tongue lashing of a parishioner telling me my daughter (then 3 years old) was not a “good girl” during mass.
  • I have experienced the politics that take place when working for the church.
  • I have observed and been on the receiving end of individuals in ministry (lay and priests) not conduct themselves with honor and dignity.

And more….

BUT this is the thing….this happens EVERYWHERE….with EVERY CHURCH!!!

Why!?

Because they are all ran by man.  And we are ALL flawed…sinners…human!  WE ARE ALL WOUNDED!!!

I wish I could look each and every wounded person in the eye ….who has left the church….hold them and say:

  • I AM SOOO SORRY WE DID NOT NURTURE YOU, FEED YOU, PROTECT YOU LOVE YOU ENOUGH!
  • I am SO SORRY your hurt was so great that you felt you had to flee.
  • I am SO SORRY that you felt you would not be heard.
  • I am SO SORRY you felt you couldn’t seek out someone else within the church to provide you comfort, encouragement, love, mercy….

I know I can’t change the past for these wounded but I pray they/you will one day be able to face the traumas and hurts felt from the Catholic Church.  I pray they/you find healing and peace.  I pray they/you have the personal relationship with Christ they/you sought after.  I pray they/you are being an instrumental disciple as He has called us all to be!

Today,  if you have left the Catholic Church, or left church period, I pray you take a moment to sit with your “why’s”.  Reflect within and ask:  Am I ready to heal from this wound?  Am I ready to break free from this bondage of pain?  Am I ready to be ALL HE CREATED ME TO BE!?  Some oils that can help you through this are: Console, Forgive, Hope, Deep Blue, Peace.

As always…sit…pray…oil up…..and tap about this….:)

Many drops of blessings dear beloved ones….

PS…..Are you open to learning how essential oils can support you?  I would be love to help you on this healing journey…..I would be honored to be your wellness/oils coach on this journey!  Message me through facebook, email, phone….let’s get started today!

PPS….ask me about my “Baby Steps Start up” that costs only $63 and you still have access to private content, coaching, support, and welcome package!

Enough Already…

I am enough!!!

I will have to probably repeat that mantra…my affirmation…FOR THE REST OF  MY LIFE!!!

It is my weak link…my access point for the enemy.

It’s not that I don’t know it…I DO!!!

It’s not that I don’t feel it…I DO!!!

It’s not that I don’t believe it…I DO….most of the time….

And there in-lies the problem…my weak point…my access point where the enemy whispers his disgusting lies!!!

I had a difficult hour last week when the whole day had been beautiful, wonderful….then….in a blink of an eye… all came crashing down on me.  It was my amazing wise, 40-year-old-stuck-in-a-14-year-old-body, daughter that had me reflect on what was really going on internally.

We talked about hormones…periods…emotions.  Her statements and questions were basically directed to the fact that: just because I don’t still have a period my body system still has hormones.  She was right.

She sensed I needed ClaryCalm and Serenity.  I laughed cause I don’t really like the smell of ClaryCalm.  Its too floral for me.  But if there is anything I have learned about the essential oils when we don’t really like a smell….especially if we have a negative reaction to it….it may mean our body REALLY needs it!

My daughter was soooooo right….

It stirred up emotions of continual healing from losing Sam.  Sam should’ve been born 6 years ago around this time.

A year later I needed a hysterectomy.  Therefore, present day I don’t experience the beautiful signals our beautiful female bodies will naturally share with us about our hormonal cycle.  Before the hysterectomy I charted my bio-markers.  This allowed me to see my estrogen build up and rise, then drop off.   Actually for me I was able to see the dysfunction of being estrogen dominant.

Our bodies are beautifully made.  They are continually talking to us.  Our bodies share with us how to take care of them, how to be healthy and strong.  Yet, I don’t have that ability anymore.  Even though my hormones are still doing something inside.  I don’t have the bio-markers to guide me anymore.

This is a reminder that I won’t carry any more children.  How can I possibly be enough for my hubby…my daughter…for God…oh the lies our enemy tries to fill in our heads.

The monthly blend, ClaryCalm, is the oil of vulnerability.  NO WONDER why I DON’T like the smell of it!!!

Who likes to feel vulnerable….IT MEANS WEAKNESS…..but that is a LIE!!!

What it really means is being open to true warmth and love in relationship.

My daughter had wisdom with this oil that she didn’t even know or understand.  But her spirit knew….and her connection and bond to me was supporting me and sharing with me what I needed to know to support myself and to continue the healing process.

This blend helps release emotional tension from the ovaries; to release suffering and dread.  We as women tend to have this surround our periods.  but since I don’t receive a period I have this build up of hormonal emotions that I don’t have bio-signals for anymore.

This can cause me to want to be even more guarded and closed.  Add to it loss, past traumas with men, and shame….but….that’s the beauty of continual healing…

God reminded me through my precious 14 year old that ClaryCalm is what I need to support myself.  I need to continue to grow in vulnerability, grow in healing, grow in knowing I AM ENOUGH.

I WILL learn a new way to monitor my hormones and with patience I will find a balance.  After all God has shown me so many other things through essential oils, tapping, plant based living, and so much more….I KNOW He will help me find a new way to find my hormonal rhythm…naturally…HIS WAY!!!

Do you struggle with feeling enough?  Do you need to open yourself up to vulnerability?  Hormonal balance? 

Seek out God’s rhythm for you!

He will remind you just HOW ENOUGH YOU REALLY ARE!!!

Sit…pray…journal…oil up….tap…and most important seek God through all of it!

As we connect one drop at a time to WHOLE health….mind body soul spirit…

you have my hugs and blessings always…

#Me Too…

I am terrible with keeping up with what’s going on in the media, news, etc….  I have NO IDEA the who what where when why of the #me too.

What I do know is I saw it on a loved ones FB page and I chose to also share it.  After all, I know God has called me to make my life an open book for all.

Anyone who stumbles across my facebook page or here on this blog will learn 3 things about me:

  • I am passionate about empowering women.

  • I share about the connection of traumas and health.

  • I connect essential oils to ALL aspects of life: mind, body, soul, spirit.

 

 

 

I imagine the purpose of the #me too,  is to create awareness….I get it.

BUT….I think the #ME TOO….needs more!  It needs a voice, encouragement, details, action!

What do I mean?

I have learned over the years the more I talk openly about my sexual traumas, abuses, and choices (not every cruel detail, but not so vague as just a ME TOO)…..the more I speak about it… the more I heal.  Each time its a little different, depending on the circumstances, the person, will depend on the detail, the angle I recall.

Every time I am asked to speak at a women’s event to share my testimony.…it’s empowering…freeing.

Thus the enemy loses his clutches. His lies have less to no impact.  I am able to walk out from under the shadow of shame, feeling dirty, ugly, and so much more.

There are many things women CAN do to empower themselves to prevent and/or heal.

In addition to:

  • Prayer
  • Oils
  • Tapping
  • retreats
  • splankna
  • therapies

There are TWO things I think are absolutely a bedrock for women to feel empowered:

TOB:  The more a woman knows and understands the beauty of her human sexuality, the less likely she will fall for the lies to compromise her dignity.  When we are weakened in our mind about our body we are weakened in our spirit and body.  This makes us vulnerable to be used and abused.

BJJ: There is something very spiritual and empowering with this form of exercise, martial arts.  Short version you become VERY COMFORTABLE, EMPOWERED, IN THE UNCOMFORTABLE.

I have always loved intense workouts.  Having weight lifted since I was 18.  I love the  force of moving something; pushing my muscles and body in ways that I didn’t think possible.  I’ve loved the fluid stretching and core strength from Pilates.  I relish the stamina I receive from walking, biking, and when I use to run.  They have all gained me confidence in my mind body soul spirit journey of loving the body I’m in.  They have nurtured my healing and finding peace with my past….BUT….not ONE of them prepared me for protecting me.

I have taken defense classes and dabbled with other martial art modalities in the past….but NONE OF THEM….have what I believe BJJ has (in my opinion)….

When you train in BJJ: whether its with a video, a gym, with a gi, no gi, competition, no competition….each form of BJJ teaches you to find peace and confidence in being comfortable in the uncomfortable.

Let me explain….

you are laying on the mat, a person has you pinned….they are 2-3 times your size…sweat dripping on you…they are breathing heavy in your face….

you have a choice:

  • Panic, struggle, exhaust yourself…or…
  • pause…dig deep within to WAIT….find your opening….ESCAPE!

Because YOU CAN….YOU CAN DEFEAT GOLIATH!

It’s the same as the bible story….YOU OUTSMART THEM!

BJJ is not about brute force….it’s art….strategy….chess….

OWNING YOUR SPACE….confidence in your skin!!!!

When you combine TOB AND BJJ…

  • You can’t help but experience the amazing power of being A WONDERFUL WARRIOR WOMAN!
  • You can’t help but heal from trauma.
  • you can’t help but empower yourself/armor yourself against hurt, pain, trauma.

This duo has something for every woman.  I love that they have been there for me through my healing. 

I am no where near where I would like to be with BJJ….heck I’ve been an “in and out” student of it for a little over a year now but I see the power of it.  I have to be mindful about my inflammation and go slower with it than I would like but I KNOW it’s amazing power (mind, body, soul, spirit) that I don’t want to give up on my BJJ journey.

I love that this duo is powerful for my daughter. 

My prayer is that she WILL NEVER…

be a woman posting #ME TOO!!!

How about you?  What’s going to be your #hashtag going to read?  #HOPE? #EMPOWERED? #HEALED? #BELOVED? #CHERISHED #NOT A VICTIM? #WARRIOR

Sit…pray…oil up…tap…..and connect to your amazing healing and health of your mind, body, soul, spirit journey!

hugs and prayers always dear beloved ones….

Fear Your Dreams

Pursuing dreams and goals, they can be scary.

I have moments when I find myself falling into the temptation of fear.  It tries to mask itself with all sorts of tricks but ultimately it is fear.

Fear:

  • I won’t reach my goal.
  • I am going to neglect my family.
  • I’m not going to meet my daughters needs.
  • I’m being selfish.
  • I’m going to mess it all up.

But then I STOP…I reach for several oils.  I first use Forgive while I tap and pray.  I have God remind me He placed these dreams and goals in my heart and head because its HIS mission that He has placed there.

By me reaching these goals, I will be breaking the doubt and bondage of generational junk.

  • God is teaching me this is my path for Him and this path WON’T create division between me and my daughter or husband. 
  • He is showing me I don’t have to fear dreams and goals! 
  • I don’t have to fear my family will be hurt or angry with me.
  • I don’t have to fear I’m not equipped because HE HAS equipped me.

I am blessed to have the two greatest cheerleaders: my daughter and husband.  They don’t doubt what God is calling me to do…..and they DON’T ever feel like I put anything before them!

As a family we pitch in to take care of the house, each other, and we each pursue our individual dreams and goals together!

After I have oiled up, tapped, and prayed through all that I feel: Peace…Serenity.  I am able to relate to the serenity prayer in a deeper more meaningful way.

What do you need to relinquish…to find your Peace and Serenity?!

Sit with this….oil up….tap….pray….connect :)….

Many blessings dear beloved ones….

I Love My Cop

Since I opened the door on Monday to share with you that my hubby is law enforcement.  I want to share with you something that I am most passionate about when it comes to law enforcement.

Their emotional well-being!!!

I remember when my hubby went through the academy one of the trainers suggested to all the “cops” to buy the book:  I LOVE A COP…..and have their spouse read it.

Well we did: buy it and read it!  Being a Sociology major with a concentration in Psychology and Criminology I knew I wanted to know even more how a cops mind works and how I as a spouse could support him.  This was one of the best books we ever read early into his career.

Some of my frustrations I have had over the years with all law-enforcement agencies is the lack of emotional/psychological support.  Oh sure if they get into a shooting they are required, mandated, to see the in house “shrink”.  But to just go see a therapist in house to keep the mind clean, to vent, to stay emotionally stable….well that is taboo.  It is something that could go into their records.  It is something that could effect advancements or opportunities within the job.

This is my interpretation:  We want you to open up and share with us your feelings when you have to take a life on the job, but don’t have feelings and emotions when someone cusses you out because you gave them a ticket.  Don’t have feelings when a drug bust could have gone wrong.  Don’t have feelings when you have to tell a mom that her 2 year old didn’t survive the accident.  Don’t have feelings….stuff…stuff….stuff them down!

We expect our law-enforcement officers to not have feelings….to be SUPER HUMAN…..or better yet not human really.  And the thing is they are.  They are just as much: mind, body, soul, spirit as you and me!

Now I know I am not going to be able to change the system the way it works currently in my life-time.  I totally do hope there will be a day that a police officer is able to go to and is actually required to see a therapist at least quarterly, in order to keep their emotions cleaned out.  But until that day happens, there are some things police officers CAN do to support their emotions.  There are ways they can recognize and acknowledge they MUST get that junk out!

Now prayer is helpful….going to church is extremely helpful…..exercise helps tremendously….but God gives us modalities and tools to help us with that prayer…to help these officers unleash these emotions so they don’t get locked inside and create more harm for them: mind, body, soul, spirit!

There are 3 things I would highly highly highly recommend an officer put into practice:

Essential Oils and Tapping are something an officer can do on their own and avoid the stigma.  But Tapping can also be helpful with a coach to work through some more difficult stuff or to get the hang of putting it into practice.  Splankna is something that is done with a practitioner but provides amazing clearing of emotions.

Just like prayer, exercise, healthy eating and sleep habits……using essential oils and tapping take time and practice to putting them into a daily routine.

But the question is this:  wouldn’t it be healthier for an officer who just encountered a rude person go to their patrol car afterwards and “diffuse” some oils in their hands, place the oils on acupressure points, and tap that negative emotion right then and there, rather than bottle it up and the next person who is a jerk to them maybe gets some of that anger or frustration.  Or worse they become disconnected from their family because they keep feeling and experiencing only the negative of the world.

Do you know a police officer in your life who could benefit from any/all of these powerful modalities?  Pray about it?  Share this information with them.  Encourage them to take their emotional health into their hands.

As always…..many prayers and hugs for all of you dear beloved ones….

Seasons of Change

Change is in the air!

I’ve been reflecting on this fall and how our schedules have been changing!  I’ve been loving the idea of sitting on the couch, reading, writing, and drinking a cup of tea as I plan out all the fun Thanksgiving and Christmas plans, gifts, etc!  Which has me thinking…if I love sitting back in the evening checking up on reading blogs, Facebook, emails, and the newest magazine that came in the mail……well then you all probably do too ;)…..

We all make transitions, changes, and the key and challenge is to honor it.  To not force it but to also not ignore it.

I have realized I want to shift from writing in the mornings to writing in the evenings.  To shift from Wednesday and Saturday morning to Monday and Thursday evening.  Who knows it might be just right for this season in my life….in your life :)…..

I could buckle with fear and say to myself, “But everyone has gotten use to my routine of Wednesday and Saturday morning?  Will they want to read Monday and Thursday evening?”  “Will I lose you all?”  BUT THAT IS FEAR…..and I don’t live in the fear realm.

After all I would propose that the reason why anyone reads what I write is because they see the authenticity behind my words.  They hear my heart.  They feel my passion.  Well if I am transitioning in when I feel passionate about what I write then that is when I should write….correct?!  And if I force a writing schedule that doesn’t work for me anymore and is lacking authenticity, heart, and passion….well then I have lost my voice and I will lose you anyways!

So starting next week my postings will come out Monday and Thursday evenings!  Perfect for beginning our weeks and wrapping up our week to prep for some amazing family time for the weekends!

I think I will also be transitioning my Facebook Live’s….but that’s for another day to ponder….lol….

What have you been wrestling with as this fall season has fully arrived and is shifting our perspectives and schedules?!  Is there something you’ve been putting off to do?  Or something you have been wanting to change but been afraid to because it may upset someone?  It may feel weird?  Or it may be out of character of you?

Instead embrace the change!  Change allows our spirit to shift.  Allows our minds to sharpen.  And allows our bodies to be challenged.   Finally it opens our soul to the possibilities of soaring!

As always remember to always take a moment each day to….

…sit…pray…oil up…..and tap….:)

Many drops of blessings dear beloved ones….

Funky Freedom

I was in a funk the week before last and I wasn’t sure why….

Then it dawned on me….it was coming up on the anniversary of my grandmothers death.

This is what I remember about that day….

I remember my hubby leaving out of town for the week due to work.  I remember my daughter and I having a latte date at Barnes and Nobles when I saw I had missed a call from my dad.  And I remember giving him a call back when I got home……and starting a load of laundry while I packed up knowing I was going to travel 4-5 hours that day to be with my dad and help him with all he needed to do.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My grandmother died on my military service anniversary date.  Why is this important: she was Navy as well…..she and I were kindred spirits in sooo many ways.

Over the last few years I often find myself laughing when I do something because I realize how much like her I am!

I didn’t grow up spending hours and hours talking and baking with her but I always felt amazing love and acceptance from her.  I was able to be me.  I never felt like I had to prove anything to her.  I never got a lecture or a disappointed look about anything.  And if I entered her kitchen when she was cooking (which everyone else was always promptly kicked out) I never was chastised for being in the kitchen.

Now if you understand the prongs and complexity of Hashimotos, there is amazing studies, research, and evidence about how complicated Hashimotos is in how it is linked to our emotions and traumatic events.

My grandmothers death was the 3rd traumatic event my body endured in a 16-18 month period.  And I am able to understand it better today why her death was the tipping point of my thyroid storm.

My grandmother was my ONE SAFE person.

SHE LOVED ME AND ACCEPTED ME FOR ME!!!

I was always safe with her.  I never had to worry about harsh words form her or teasing or anything negative.  I truly don’t have a single negative memory with her.

I believe the little girl inside of me that was still needing to figure out how to heal from other traumas that were not revealing themselves yet…..well that little girl within felt panic…felt lost…..felt the rug pulled out from under her.

That little girl’s security blanket was gone…..so her body didn’t feel safe and went into disarray!

Even as I sit here writing this I feel amazing warmth thinking of her and profound loss because I realized everything I  am writing is so true.  This amazing light-bulb of realization and connecting the dots is profound, illuminating, and freeing!

Have you had an enlightened moment about a trauma in your life?  Have you had a moment to add just one more piece to the puzzle of your health?!  And have you found freedom in these realizations….revelations!?

Sit with this….pray about this…journal about it…..oil up and tap about it!

Today I’m oiling up with Console, Peace, and Cheer as I tap my thanks for having had a safe person in my life and still loving myself through others ways they can be hurtful through their words!

What are you going to oil up with and tap about!?

Many blessings, hugs, and prayers dear beloved ones!

Tap away your Triggers

I’ve been tapping with Essential Oils for about 6 months now!

I probably have been doing this even longer than I realize.  You too have been in away probably been tapping without even realizing!  How often do you hold your temples when you feel pressure in your head?  Press your fingers to your upper lip?  put your hand on your collar bone?  Do you ever feel yourself pressing those places and feeling relief or trying to find relief?

There are many ways to practice and experience EFT (tapping for short).  There is a sequence but there is also short cuts when in the moment and not having the time for a full sequence.  Furthermore, tapping doesn’t have to be just about a negative emotion needing to be released.  It can also be about appreciation and thankfulness.  It can be part of prayer.

To learn more about EFT and the science behind it check out the Tapping Solutions site.  It’s a very informative site.  And full of great info, especially for beginners.

There can be so many sources out there that practice and teach others about EFT.  For me making sure I have a Christian perspective was very important.   When we start dealing with energy work and healing it is important that the person I am learning from and getting info from is Christ centered.

How does Essential Oils fit into this picture!?

Essential oils are supportive with physical issues and very effective for emotional problems as well.  Essential Oils are energy….we are energy!   There is plenty of evidence and backing to help us understand that Essential Oils do provide emotional release and support in healing.

So if Essential Oils can help us release emotions locked up inside of us and tapping releases emotions locked up inside of us via the meridian points…..then why wouldn’t we combine the two together!

Here is a basic understanding about how to combine the two together.

Once you have acknowledged the emotion you are struggling with rate your discontent, your angst with this emotion.  Pick the oil that is going to address that emotion.  You can diffuse that oil while you tap or put the oil on the tapping points or at the very least on your finger tips that you will be tapping with.

Now you are going to focus on what this emotion is.  This doesn’t mean you stew on it, it means you are going to bring it to the conscience, acknowledge that it is there rather than stuffing it down.

Then you do your set up statement.  It can be as simple as, “Even though I feel (fill in blank), I completely and totally love and accept myself.”  This is said 3 times while tapping on the karate chop point.  Now you are ready to start doing the sequence through all the points (The Tapping Solution has a fabulous 2 minute video about the points).  By the time you have done 5 rounds you need to assess if your emotion has decreased, if you feel energy having opened up and flowing better.  Some signs that things are shifting is if you find yourself yawning a lot, if you actually feel emotions welling up and crying, your body starts to relax, and so many other ways.  Tapping is a chance for you to really check in with yourself and start noticing all these little ways your body tries to talk to you!

Don’t have any emotions to clear out?  Or don’t think you do?!  Then just began each day with:  Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for another beautiful day!  Thank you for creating me to be wonderfully beautifully made!

What are your thoughts about EFT?  Do you think it is something you would be open to for your healing and thriving!?  Sit with this….pray about this….tap about it :)….journal about it….share your thoughts with me!

Many blessings and hugs dear beloved ones!
