Stress, tension, anxiety – oh my!

Stress, tension, anxiety, pain are not bad – they are simply indications from your very intelligent body that it is a perfect time to bring awareness to something you haven’t yet been able to see. It may be an opportunity to look at a belief that is no longer serving you, a pattern that has been playing on repeat in your life, or become conscious of what your heart is longing for.

Today I was experiencing nausea and tension in my belly, and I knew it was something other than indigestion. I have learned to look to the body as a guide that can inform me of when something is ready to heal within me. I no longer stuff uncomfortable feelings, but see them as an opportunity to clear out whatever is no longer serving me. Since I have now had many significant breakthroughs in my life as a result of clearing these “charges” inside, I now get a bit excited when I discover that yet another one has surfaced. What a great opportunity to take another heavy boulder out of my inner satchel and give it back to the earth.

EFT Emotional Freedom TechniqueThis video landed in my inbox at the perfect time. I had heard of and tried the “tapping technique” (or EFT – the Emotional Freedom Technique) a few times many years ago, but had forgot that I had it as a tool in my toolbox.

This video is a really good synopsis of what tapping can do for you, and it also contains a process where you’ll learn how to do tapping and can work on a specific point of stress in your body right now. It’s really powerful. I am feeling WAY better after doing it. I recommend that after the video is done you take 5 minutes and do your own tapping using your own wording.

Enjoy! I would love to hear what you think in the comments below.

PS – Nick’s Sister, Jessica Orton, has a great (16 minute) free guided tapping mediation online to deal with financial stress.
I highly recommend it. You can find it here.
