The Daily Practical Use of EFT
Wow! What a busy summer that flew by. I have not been keeping up on regular newsletters or posts. Sometimes life is that way isn't it? We have a plan and we just have to move with the flow sometimes. I had a really great experience with a mommy of young babies this Summer. She came to me because of mounting stress over working. Not that there was anything necessarily wrong with her job, but that she had to work at all. Her husband is a student and she has to work to pay the bills. Her great desire is to stay home with her babies and her oldest was not making it any easier.
Each day as she left for work, her sweet little girl would be moved to sobbing and crying and begging her mommy to please not leave her and go to work. Day after day after week after month, this stress continued to mount. She also has a lovely little baby boy. And he was also showing signs of stress, probably picking up mom's stressful feelings.
So, mom came to me and we worked around all of the stressful issues with her work. Sad mom, sad babies, stress from sobbing, and so forth. Within about 30 minutes this stressful mom, was much more relaxed, smiling instead of crying, and feeling hopeful. We discussed mom to mom some of the things she could do to keep the momentum with this feeling. One of the things I recommended was that each night as she tucked her daughter into bed, that she show her the magic buttons that make her feel better. Show her how to express her feelings and tap on herself so she could feel better. And she did.
Within a day or two of our appointment, she and her family went out of town for two weeks. I saw her yesterday because I needed to attend to some business where she works. Without asking, she offered me the following details.
Her little girl had been getting progressively worse with her emotions. She was beginning at night to start crying about the next day. She showed her how to tap and what to say about her feelings. On there way home from vacation, several days before she had to go back to work, she heard from the back of the car in her carseat, something like this. "I am sad mommy is going to work. I am mad mommy is going to work." She looked back to find her 3 year old, actively tapping the points on her face as she vocalized her feelings. Well that deserves a Toyota jump for those of you who remember those commercials.
Further, mom told me that she had been to work four days this week since coming home, and no sobbing fits. And I have to say, mommy looks much more relaxed and happy about being at work. One more thing. Little baby boy was having serious constipation. The day after I tapped with his mom, he began "letting go" of all of that. 🙂 Interesting how babies pick up on what is going on around them. So happy to help this little family through this very stressful, very common problem. EFT is so practical.
