Gently Letting Go

Have you ever been told to 'let it go'? Sometimes it is easier said than done.

We all aim for a joyful and satisfying life, free of emotional trauma, chronic physical pain, compulsions and addictions. Pain, emotions and symptom soothers (drugs, alcohol, spending, smoking, etc) are closely related and often stem from early or negative experiences that shaped our understanding of the world.

We may wonder ‘why me?’, accept that pain is our ‘lot in life’ or believe that something may improve ‘one day’ even though we are unsure of which if any action to take to change our direction.

Subconscious Control

Did you know old programs hidden in the unconscious mind can be the source of emotional baggage and physical symptoms which doggedly follow us throughout our lives? Powerful old programs created from distressing experiences can be locked in the subconscious mind and control us from within. Often without us even realising, they trigger unhelpful behaviours which sabotage, limit and sometimes even immobilise us.

What if you could clear old programs without delving deep into the upsetting or traumatic situation? Emotional Freedom Technique also known as EFT or tapping, does this using gentle tapping of the body’s meridian points to release energy and old patterns that no longer serve.

The Link Between Symptom and Emotions

Negative emotions disrupt the body’s energy – think of a cold shock or a sinking feeling in the pit of the stomach. If we don’t have the skills to release negative emotions surrounding upsetting events, our body stores the relative energy as a part of us that needs to be healed.

Then to get our attention, the body will use physical pain and disease, demanding that we address the unresolved emotional problem. While we may use medication to overcome a symptom, the underlying issue will not be resolved and frequently the body will manifest another symptom (sometimes more serious than the one prior) to gain our attention. If you are unsure, think of people who still suffer tonsillitis even though they have had their tonsils removed. So, the body’s health must be approached as a whole. We cannot fully treat the symptoms without addressing the cause, and vice-versa.

Many authorities assert that the process of letting go can’t happen until the closet is opened, the trauma fully examined and processed. This is successful for some, however, others will benefit equally from EFT to release traumatic energies. This therapy does not erase the event or experience, but releases the retained emotions around the issue without revisiting it in detail. Once released, the individual can reflect on the experience without traumatic triggers – essentially ‘letting it go’.

A Powerful Combination to Soothe the Inner Critic

In conjunction with Kinesiology, EFT helps to address the harsh inner critic and teaches us how to take a compassionate view of ourselves. We are all doing the best we can at any given time – sometimes we need to struggle to find the point where we are ready to change. No judgement – this is just another aspect of our journey. If you are ready to retrain the critic, to develop compassion for yourself and release negative energy around past experiences, consider an EFT/Kinesiology session.

It's all about Balance.

Like everything in the universe, our bodies are comprised of energy. When we restore balance to the body’s energy, and mend the negative emotions, we allow the body to heal its physical symptoms caused by the energy disruption.

We are not 'broken'. Your body knows what it needs to be well.

Live your best life.
