Snowed Under?

Ever have one of those weeks when everything seems to happen at once? It can seem like things are quiet for months and then suddenly loads of stuff seems to happen in the same week. What is that all about? I’m having one of those weeks this week! I am moving house and have also taken on extra work and had extra clients. How am I coping? Well, I’ll admit I’ve had the odd “wobbly” moment. But I’ve also had EFT to help me too. I know looking back at other times I’ve had like this that I had a tendency to have lots of “wobbly” moments and collapse in a big heap at the end of it! Burnt out and battered would be a good description of how I felt at the end of those busy periods.

Thankfully that doesn’t happen any more because I now use EFT to help me cope. Ok I can’t actually change things so that they are less busy (I would if I could!) but I can tap to help me stay calm and centered. It helps me put things into perspective and see the bigger picture. It can be useful to tap before things get too busy to prepare the way as it were for the busy times ahead. Then you can tap during your busy times when things start to feel like they are getting too much.

I often tap in the car whilst I am driving. In addition to helping me let go of any stress, anxiety and feeling snowed under etc, it helps me focus on my journey more easily. As I tap I can feel my body relax, my shoulders drop, my breathing get deeper and slower. I use finger tapping normally as this allows me to keep both hands on the wheel and tap the fingertips of one hand safely.  In addition to this I will also tap at home working through all the emotions I am feeling and the physical sensations in my body (e.g tense, tight shoulders).

So, remember we can’t always change our circumstances but we can always choose how we handle them!

Keep tapping!

I Want that House!

Are you going through some moving stress? Have you found the house you want to buy? Maybe you’ve really fallen in love with it and set your heart on it. Or maybe you’re holding yourself back just in case it doesn’t go through. It isn’t easy either way. With the current recession, lack of available mortgages, wondering whether the house prices are going to fall even further. It all causes us stress. Then you have the whole hassle of the move itself. All that packing, organising, change of address and on the list goes.

I want this house

This tapping script is targeted at that stressful time when you’re trying to buy your house and you have that uncertainty, fear and trepidation about whether it will or won’t happen. Before you start, rate your score on a scale of 0 – 10 where 10 is maximum intensity.

  • Even though I really want that house, it’s so perfect for me/us, I accept my feelings about this
  • Even though I’m scared this house purchase will fall through, I’m open to remaining calm
  • Even though it is so stressful not knowing if we will get this house and I’ll be really disappointed if we don’t, I accept all my feelings anyway

Eyebrow: I’m so stressed about this house
Side of eye: I really hope we get it – it’s my perfect house
Under eye: I’m so scared it will all fall through
Under nose: I hate feeling all this stress
Chin: I wish I knew if we were going to get this house
Collarbone: I really love this house and will be devastated if we don’t get it!
Under arm: I can’t stand this waiting game
Top of head: It’s so stressful not knowing if we’ll get this house or not

Eyebrow: I just can’t cope with the thought that we’ll lose this house
Side of eye: We’ve looked at so many houses and this is the only one I want
Under eye: I just won’t cope if it all falls through
Under nose: I have this big knot in my stomach
Chin: I wish it would all hurry up and go through
Collarbone: Why is it taking so long?
Under arm: I wake up at night in a cold sweat about this house
Top of head: I can’t stand this stress, it’s making me feel ill

Eyebrow: I’m open to staying calm
Side of eye: I guess worrying about it doesn’t really help
Under eye: Maybe I can feel a bit calmer
Under nose: What if I could let this stress go
Chin: I really want this house
Collarbone: Maybe I can remain positive
Under arm: What if it all goes smoothly
Top of head: Maybe it will all work out ok

Now take a deep breath and check your score again. Repeat the tapping until your score comes down to zero.  Remember to use your words if they are more appropriate to you.

There are many different aspects about moving that cause us stress and anxiety. In future blogs I will address these aspects.

Until then, keep tapping!
