Rhonda thanks for asking, I am doing fine my hubby came home yesterday so I can relax a lot more.

Thursday I had to go to see the nurse and do some shopping,Oh how I missed my chauffeur, I had to walk by myself. Something I find hard to do. Anyway as I walked through the park I started tapping for being nervous and afraid, there was no one around to see me so I was quite happy walking along tapping. To cut a long story short I walked to Dr's, walked to supermarket, around the store then because there was a 20 min wait for bus home I walked home. I was out for about 1hr 30 Min's by myself walking and shopping I didn't feel a bit nervous. My daughter couldn't believe it when I told her. The tapping just calmed me down completely.

Good Morning,
I am on Carol Look's list and I get a script every week for tapping different issues. This week I am tapping about focusing on what I don't want and not about what I do want. I love these letters. Some are what I need and others are not. She had a whole series for abundance awhile back.

Just thought I'd share. Blessings to all! emoticon

Would you rather be right or would you rather have peace?

I've just realized I havent done any tapping over the last few days, this time of stress is when I should have been doing it. I must make time even if its only 5 mins to just tap on relaxing.

Hope everyone is well.

Norma, I hope your husband is doing okay. What a traumatic event. I'm glad to hear he seems to be picking up.

I printed out Gary Craig's manual but I haven't read it. Seems like a workshop would be a fun way to learn. I don't know the rules about a leaderless team but I bet the answer is in the FAQ which I could take a look at.

Cheers, folks!

Good morning all sorry I've not been on but my husband had a heart attack on Thur night and I just haven't had time. He is still in hospital but picking up.

I've been tapping for about 2yrs, I saw Paul McKenna doing his way of tapping and thought I would look into it, I found Gary Craig and signed up for his newsletters. I overcame my problem of going out by myself by tapping. I wish I had someone to share with as sometimes I feel that if I told people they would think I was crazy. You are so lucky having a group.

Good Morning emoticon Do we need a leader? Diane you will attract the people you need. Have you thought about starting your own tapping group to introduce people to the concept, or offering workshops?

Norma how long have you been tapping?

Hi Carewren welcome to the group.

How did everyone discover EFT?

I had read about it years ago and printed out the manual and could not get into it emoticon One day I did an internet search and found an EFT workshop, which lead me to my weekly tapping group.

I am brand new to tapping and haven't even mastered a script. I probably could co-lead if somebody, especially somebody with some tapping knowledge, would co-lead with me. However, I have not even explored the topics. We can write a coach or even check the FAQ to see what the regulations are about teams without leaders.

Diane I hope things work out for you and you find the hundred people you need. I think if we all make the effort to come on each day even to just say hello a natural leader will make him or herself known. Maybe we should all try tapping for this.

No one answered the question about danger of losing group. I am retiring from teaching and plan to become certified in EFT and hope this group stays. EFT is such a powerful tool. I am excited about the time I will have later to work on this. I need to work with 100 people and probably have only worked with 10 so will be anxious when I get moved to find people I can work with on the phone. What do we need to do to not lose this group? I am swamped at the moment but can post something every day.

Rhonda lucky you having a tapping group are there many in it. I feel alone sometimes as apart from the E-mails from Gary Craig and this group I don't know any one who does tapping.

Oh, I hope we do not lose this team. I just got here and wanted to know about EFT and how to do it to help lose weight. I am not even in the position to take over. I have a compressed summer course in Sociology, so it is hard to get here some days. And of course I am new here and do not know anyone. So, hey you all. My name is Kamala and I live in Maryland. I am a full time student who is 65 years old.

Gotta get busy and workout and study. Hope every one has a peaceful day. emoticon

I am so glad I found this team today. I just got off the phone with my 29 year old son who I was trying to make arrangements to celebrate his birthday - my treat! - and he just got into a power thing about which restaurant etc etc. Aaargh. I was just full of frustration. BUT then I remember the EFT group. I had learned basic EFT taps and I just sat down and started doing a series. Woosh. Now I can pass through the kitchen safely!!!

Try www.Tapping.com and look under Anxiety. I would also try tapping on the under lying cause of your anxiety. You might be surprised at what comes up. All the videos on Tapping are free. Good luck and keep us posted...

I am interested in this for weight loss and anxiety. I cured myself from a fear of heights that appeared out of no where a few years back, and two or three sessions of tap-guessing cured it. I didn't really know what I was doing. Still don't. But watched I can make you thin, and my 10 year old daughter cured herself of thumb sucking after watching the show. I don't really know how to start, but my binge eating is pretty well stopped, but I don't exercise, and still choose bad food choices when I eat my regular meals.

I used to have terrible panic and anxiety. I still use tapping for stress and other things but I did this thing called the Linden Method. I am totally cured of panic (It took about 2 weeks to get to about 90% cured and another month to get that last 10%). I was telling a group of friends about this and one of the women told me she had agoraphobia and I told her that the guy who designed the program (which also uses EFT) used to be agoraphobic and that's how he came to create the method. She bought it and within a month was done with it... cured!! When she told me about her success... she cried and cried "with relief" and couldn't believe how easy and fast it was.
It not cheap, but it cost about as much as on session with a therapist... best darn money I ever spent!!!
Research it for yourself...
www.LindenMethod.com
You can even search for free videos on YouTube... Just search Charles Linden.
Good luck and keep us posted.
Sending you love and light...

I used to do tapping all the time, to help me deal with my agoraphobia. I got better and stopped doing it. However, things are much the same as they were at the time I started using tapping, so, I am going to go back to it, because I know it works. My favorite is tapping in the center of my palm, when nervous, it really helps me. I found a website called Eceltic Energies that has a lot about acupressure points and mudras and a lot of other balancing techniques that is well worth checking out.

I look forward to talking to you and learning from you!

Thatsy,

It breaks my heart to think of what you had to go through when you were a child. I cant imagine what you went through and the heart ache you experienced.

I had some traumatic things happen to me when I was a child. I have always found it hard to love myself as well. For a while now, I have gone to a natural Health practitioner that deals with emotional trauma. She told me to withdraw myself from the situation and look at myself as a child as I am a stranger looking at her. How do I feel. I was actually quite surprised that I felt warmth, love, and protective. The first response was to reach out and hug her. This was my exercise. To mentally give love and support to myself as a child. I know that a lot has been said about Inner Child work and sometimes it is made fun of. But when it comes to childhood trauma - especially when inappropriate attention has been given or when no attention has been given - it is very helpful and powerful. Imagine hugging and giving love and attention and everything needed to that little girl who lost her mother and, in effect, lost her father too. You can tap it through too, when you come up with walls like not being able to picture yourself or finding it hard to give love to the child.
When you go through this exercise, I was told that I may crave or really want something that I haven't had or wanted in ages, like an ice cream cone with sprinkles, or gummy bears, or a teddy bear. This is your bodies way of connecting the memories of childhood with adulthood. I was told not to neglect that but to go and have the ice cream - just for the little girl.

Hugs and Kisses

I have found that in situations too. The body learns what is good for it and you automatically do it without thinking when you need to.

I'm glad you found the inner strength to get to your appointment on your own. Good for you!!!!!

Just wanted to share this with you.

I am not very good at going on the bus by myself,today I had no choice if I wanted to go to my meeting I had to get the bus. I was sitting on the bus feeling rather nervous with my hands on my lap when I suddenly realized I was tapping the karate point, I just did it without thinking, I then started saying to my self, "although I am nervous I love and accept myself" and before I knew it I had reached my stop and I was completely relaxed.
I often chastise myself for not tapping all the time but maybe we don't need to it is there in our subconscious for when we need it. Like a trusty friend.

Thanks Norma,
I needed to hear that.
You are the second person to tell me to do the mirror work today!
I'm gonna be honest... I don't want to.
It feels weird.
I don't think it's silly... although I'm sure it would look silly if someone walked in on us doing it.
I just have a hard time saying those words to myself.
I will do it anyway.
Thanks again and I will be back to report...

Hi Thatsy, I can understand a lot of what you are saying. I lost my mum when I was 16yrs there was no counselling in those days you just had to get on with it. I became agoraphobic and thought I was going mad. It took me over 40 yrs to find EFT and some peace of mind. I still get fearful but have overcome that to some extent by sharing my fears with my husband instead of bottling it up.

I stand in front of the full length mirror every morning and look myself in the eye and say " I love you, every part of you from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. Inside and out. Thank you for all the work you do to keep me going. You are beautiful"
It might sound silly but I have found it works wonders for my self esteem, at first I glared at the fat thing looking back at me but now I don't see that I see the smiling face of someone who is loved. You could tap as you talk to yourself I do sometimes.
If we don't love ourselves how can we expect anyone else to love us. emoticon

Hope sharing this might help a bit, by the way I am still fat but my body and I are dealing with that together.

I'm in!
I have a conundrum!
I've been tapping and journaling to get to the bottom of some things that not only stand in the way of losing weight, but also stop me from really living my life to the fullest...
That said, I have recently come to realize that a big issue for me is that when my mom died (I was six, she was killed by a drunk driver) I was left to my father who had PTSD and self medicated with prescription drugs and alcohol (and still does) and needless to say...
I had no one to comfort or nurture me.
So.. then there was food.
Food has been a reliable friend for so long in my life. I have tapped on that, but here's where I'm feeling a little lost...
I feel this big hole in my soul. I get scared and anxious on the inside (I rarely reveal that to anyone around me and I'm so good at hiding it that people don't believe me when I tell them I am a chronic worrier and I had severe anxiety issues)
But, here's my question...
How do I fill up that void?
How do I love and nurture myself with out food?
How do I heal a wound that has been here for 37 years?
I don't know how to tapp on that. I know I should just start tapping, and I do, and the answer that comes to me is to love myself..
but that doesn't make sense..
how do I love myself?
How do I feel that?
I hope by sharing this I can help someone else.
It makes me a little uncomfortable putting this out here, but I'm really perplexed!
