As I have tapped my way through a variety of problems over the last year, I learned one lesson that has been incredibly important to my healing journey. That lesson is that as amazing as EFT can be, you can’t forget about forgiveness when working through your issues.

I grew up in a household where the message was that I never quite did anything well enough. My sister excelled, and I was always second string.

I went on to marry a man who berated me on a daily basis. No matter what went wrong in our lives, it was my fault. I believed him, and I took ownership of that blame and guilt.

As I tried to tap my way through all my family issues, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I had to find forgiveness in my heart for those who had heaped all that blame and emotional abuse on me. It wasn’t easy, because I didn’t particularly want to forgive, but I did.

When I continued to have emotional intensity over these issues, I was puzzled. What was I doing wrong? What had I forgotten? I started thinking about all the people in my life who had wronged me, and I realized with deep shock that of all the people in my life that I resented, I resented myself the most! A part of me still believed that I was responsible for a lot of bad things happening.

Once I had this epiphany, and moved on to tapping in forgiveness for myself, the results were profound. There were so many things I blamed myself for about which I could finally either say “Not my fault” or “Okay, I did it, but it’s in the past and I can let go of it”.

If you are struggling with working through issues from your past, please don’t forget about forgiveness.  Being unable to forgive others ultimately only hurts <i>you</i>, and being unable to forgive yourself precludes the possibility of letting go of all that baggage, and moving on. 

Forgiveness.  Keep it in your tapping routines, and in your heart!

EFT is magic!

Okay, maybe it’s not actually magic, but the results are so amazing that it’s hard to remember that.

EFT has had a profound affect on my life. I had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and osteoarthritis. I was in pain every minute of every day. I was taking prescription painkillers daily, and stronger painkillers nightly. Even, so I had bad days, and sometimes really bad days.

Thanks to EFT, I am now virtually pain free. No more of the daily misery of struggling just to do normal tasks. No more prescription painkillers. No more painkillers at all.

Eliminating my considerable pain was not my original plan when I started using EFT. I had a highly stressful job, and was just trying to make it through each day, so I tapped for stress, anxiety, anger and whatever else came up at the office. The results were significant, so I felt ready to try EFT on other problems.

I started tapping on my knee pain, and my hip pain. It didn’t happen overnight, but relief did come. Then I moved along to all the other pain I had. Mine was a gradual process, taking about 6 months in all.

For the time I spent learning EFT, and doing the actual tapping, the payoff was amazing. No more pain keeping me in bed for days at a time. No more pain keeping me awake night after night, in spite of the drugs. After years of pain, it is nothing short of a miracle for me that I am now painfree, and my entire outlook on life has changed accordingly.

EFT may not be part of your belief system, but if you’ll simply give it a chance, you too may experience amazing results. You can download a free EFT manual here.

Give yourself a chance to experience the life changing power of EFT. It won’t cost you a thing except a bit of your time.

If you’re willing to give EFT a try, here is a sample tapping script for back pain, a very common complaint.
