In a recent blog post we explored ideas relating to menopause and cultural differences that may exist. So the next question is: if you were to apply tapping to anything related, what would you say?
I want to share a brilliant (annotated) post form Gary Craig (founder of EFT) – where a lady emailed her story in about using EFT to Menopausal symptoms. You can read the whole story here.
Let’s hear from Nancy –
I am in the midst of menopause and with it comes the frustration in making the decision on how will I handle these annoying “hot flashes” (hopefully without Hormone Replacement Therapy, if possible).
So I started intuitively tapping and began my journey with globally saying:
“Even though I suffer from these menopausal symptoms, they are a part of the natural aging process, and I accept them because I truly and completely love and accept myself “
I then eventually added the following to the end of the above statement….
“and I want these symptoms to stop now”
I then moved to more specifics:
“Even though I have these ____ (i.e. horrible, annoying, exhausting, tiring, embarrassing, etc.) hot flashes, I truly and completely love and accept myself and I want them to STOP now”
“Even though I am still having some_____ hot flashes I understand this is normal, and I want them to STOP now, because I truly love and accept myself”
It is with sheer delight that I can say that the night sweats diminished substantially the first night after that one session of tapping. And almost completely gone the second day and second session of tapping on that list. I would say my 0-10 intensity levels are now about 0-1 for both “hot flashes” and the ” night sweats” ….Truly remarkable.
An interesting caveat here is that while my hot flashes and night sweats were clearly under control, I was then starting to deal with “chills” . At first I thought I was getting the flu or some illness…. and then I had to laugh, because I realized while I was being very specific about the hot portion of my issues ….. “HOT flashes” …. I neglected the rest of the culprit which is that all of my hot flashes were followed up with a round of the “chills”. So while I adequately addressed the hot part I failed to recognize or be specific about the cold or “CHILLS” part.
It has now been 2 months since I first addressed this problem and I am basically without hot flashes or chills. If I do get a “flare-up” I simply do a round or two of EFT and they are history.
I hope this might inspire you to applying tapping to any symptoms you may be having, and here’s to your stories of success!
