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.
