EFT and Meditation

TAPPING OUT THE MIND CHATTER

Something I understand on a feeling level, not only on a mind level, is that what works for me does not work for everyone else. Sounds obvious, right? Well, in the past when I found something that was a slam dunk for me, I would get really excited about it and want to tell the world. I thought if everyone would give it a chance it would help them, too. So, whatever I share here on these pages comes from learning from my own arrogant assumptions. I do not really know what is best for others. Admittedly, sometimes I forget.

Here are some things I want to share. One of them may work for you:

I have struggled with is meditation. Often feeling as though I had failed by not being able to reach the inner calm and quietness of mind that many people talk about. Observing the mind chatter has been very helpful, but has created some frustration. I have participated in Dynamic and other Osho Meditations that involve movement. I have found them to be a useful way of being able to do a  seated meditation afterwards. In essence, awareness and being present in our daily tasks is meditation. But what if you are not at that point?

EFT

Emotional Freedom Technique / EFT is one way to give a conscious voice to our mind chatter. This is done by venting while tapping on acupuncture points. It is a great way to gain clarity and  insights into what is running us ragged. It is hard to sit in meditation when that voice is babbling on. The idea of being still and silent already causes some people to feel as though they have  failed before starting.

I am not going to explain EFT here, but for more information on how it works, go to Tapping Solution and there you will find more information on the basics of EFT.

Give it a shot.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
