Ease Cold & Flu Symptoms With E.F.T.
It’s that time of year again so I thought a short Emotional Freedom Technique session to help you ease cold symptoms might be useful.
The common cold often arises from the simple belief that there is such a thing as a “Cold Season”. If we buy into this belief it’s pretty certain that we’ll develop a cold! Feelings of overwhelm, being overworked, carrying too much responsibility, being under too much pressure, feeling scattered and not taking time to listen to your body and slow down also often result in us developing colds.
If you are feeling under the weather check to see if you are feeling any of these emotions. That will give you ideas for what to tap on. But you can get started right now by following the suggestions below.
If you are not familiar with E.F.T. Just follow the tapping points illustrated below.
Starting at the Side of Hand Point say your set up statement out loud if possible and tap gently on the Side of the Hand with two or three fingers of your other hand.
“Even though I have this cold, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”. Repeat this three times then tap the Eyebrow Point gently around ten times saying “I have this cold”. Move to the Side Of Eye point and repeat, “I have this cold”. Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.
Return to your Side of Hand Point and say “Even though I have this cold, I know it’s my body’s way of giving me a message, maybe it just wants to me to slow down and take some time out. Or maybe it wants me to look after myself a bit more. Maybe I’ve just been doing to much and need to rest, nurture and love myself more. I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself and I am grateful to my body for giving me this message. Repeat this three times.
Move to the Eyebrow Point and tap gently around ten times saying “My body is giving me this message, I am grateful. I now choose to listen to my body and take good care of myself”.
Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.
Back to the Side of Hand Point and say, “Even though I have (state symptom), I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself and my body. I am now listening to my body’s messages”. Again, repeat this three times then tap round the points using the reminder phrase, “This symptom (whatever the symptom is, i.e. this blocked nose etc).
You can then do a round for each of your symptoms.

Why Aches & Pains You Thought Were Healed Strike Again In December
December is well and truly upon us and it can be a funny month. For many people it’s happy, for most people it’s fun and busy! For some people it is deeply painful and lonely. It can also be a time when the old aches and pains you thought you’d healed reappear! You might choose to believe in things like “germ theory” or “the flu season” although, if you are reading this, you probably know better 🙂
Listen To Your Body!
With all the anniversaries, celebrations, happy or unhappy memories which are triggered at this time of year, it is far more likely that an unresolved emotional issue has been re-triggered. Your body is letting you know this, by manifesting pain or dis-ease.
How Do I Know Which Emotions Have Been Re-triggered?
Listen to your body! If you are not consciously aware of a feeling or emotion that has come up, the painful area in your body will give you a clue. The area which is painful is pointing the way to the emotions that have been triggered. I share over 2,500 Free Healing Affirmations for all areas of your body & life. The clearings and affirmations tell you which emotions are likely to be causing the pain.
Check Your Beliefs!
Become aware of your beliefs. If you tell everyone “I get three colds every winter.” should you be surprised when your body manifests what your words are affirming? Your body hears your words and does its best to follow your instructions. If you say, “I always slip on the ice”, are you surprised when you slip on the ice? Take a good look at your beliefs, thoughts and words. Lower back pain often coincides with anniversaries. These occasions confront us with our own mortality and can bring up deep layers of fear and insecurity about what lies ahead or about our standing in life. Learn more about lower back pain and how to help it heal.
As You Become More Aware and Conscious
As you become more aware and conscious, you realise that the state of your body, health and life are a direct result of your consistent thoughts. One stray thought isn’t going to cause a calamity, but thoughts you think over and over again, become beliefs and beliefs are very powerful. So this winter, become aware of your beliefs and see how your health improves.
A Top Tip To Stay Well
If you don’t want to get coughs, colds, sinus infections etc. PLEASE don’t watch ads for cold & flu! You might think I’ve forgotten the word “remedies” at the end of that last sentence – I didn’t!
Remember all these ads are there to make money and constantly reminding you it’s the “flu season” is a sure fire way to bring flu into your consciousness. Whenever you see them, remind yourself that is no longer your reality. Affirm that you are healthy, your immune system is powerful and re-set your intention to remain healthy. Give no energy or attention to the imaginary “flu season”.
3 Key Emotional Reasons for Broken, Sprained & Swollen Ankles
A Spate of Ankle Injuries!
I have heard a few stories recently about injured ankles so thought I’d write a brief post about what is really going on with us when we hurt our ankles. On the face of it you might say it’s just down to the wintry weather. I don’t believe that for a moment! There is always a deeper reason for everything that happens to us, or more precisely, experiences we create.
If you have hurt, broken or damaged your ankle, the first and most important emotional issue to look at is support! Your ankles reflect the support we all depend on from people around us and more importantly our inner support system. This inner support system consists of the psychological and emotional beliefs that give our lives meaning and purpose. It includes the emotional support of our loved ones or spiritual or religious convictions. If any of that is taken away, doubted or questioned there is nothing left to hold us upright. This can happen when we are shocked, traumatised, betrayed or rejected and feel unable to stand alone.
Our ankles are essential in keeping us upright, therefore they may collapse when we can no longer stand it or when the weight is just too much to bear.
A Sprained or Twisted Ankle
Our ankles also allow us to be flexible. A sprained or twisted ankle, implies a lack of flexibility in the direction we are going. The strain is too much and causes the energy to buckle or twist, i.e. to go in all directions at once.
A Swollen Ankle
A swollen ankle indicates that you are holding emotional energy, frustration or resistance to letting go.
A Broken Ankle
A broken ankle indicates a very deep emotional conflict about the ground you are standing on. Perhaps you are resisting making a change in the direction of your life, questioning your beliefs or are afraid or unable to stand up for yourself. Ask yourself what does your broken ankle prevent you from doing and what does your broken ankle allow you do to?
Boost Your Immune System With E.F.T.
Our immune systems are designed to recognise and eliminate viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders. For the most part they do an amazing job! However, our immune systems can become less effective when we are under pressure, feel like giving up, are pushing too hard, feel insecure, threatened or manipulated. If you are feeling under the weather, check to see if you are feeling any of those emotions. That will give you ideas for what to tap on. But you can start boosting your immune system right now by tapping on the following the suggestions.
If you are not familiar with E.F.T. Just follow the tapping points illustrated here.
(For more instructions about tapping points, pop over to my article about using E.F.T. to ease cold and flu symptoms.)
If you have symptoms of illness, pain or discomfort, use those in your set up statement as you tap on your Side of Hand Point. For example, “Even though I have this cold, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”. Repeat this three times then tap the Eyebrow Point gently, around ten times, saying “I have this cold”. Move to the Side Of Eye point and repeat, “I have this cold”. Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.

If you don’t have any symptoms but want to give your immune system a boost try tapping a few rounds saying these, or similar statements:- “I know my immune system is doing the most amazing job and I deeply and completely love, accept and thank my immune system”. “My immune system is fabulous, it knows exactly what it is doing and it keeps me healthy and well. I deeply and completely love and thank my immune system”. “My immune system is powerful, wise and strong. I am grateful to my fantastic immune system and I deeply and completely love, accept and thank my wonderful immune system for keeping me safe and healthy”. “My immune system is doing the most fantastic job protecting me from all those viruses and bacteria and I deeply and completely love, accept and thank my amazing immune system, thank you, immune system, for everything you do for me”.
