Best meditation I EVER LISTENED TO! Lisa
“I gained a better understanding of my fears that have been hidden behind the mask of defensiveness which makes me see myself as strong and bold. I can give up the imaginary fears and reserve the energy that is wasted on being constantly on guard. I will work with this more. Thank you”. Mary
The statements were right on for all the issues I have with fear. I will repeat this meditation because it will take more than once for me to move to the finish line. Thank you! Karma.
Gentle peaceful, music was perfect, pace was perfect. Many could be taken into day as mantra or slogan… My own: I release all unhealthy sabotaging fear that is keeping me from humbly doing Divine’s will, from my life. I replace it with self compassion, Divine’s humble Courage and Knowing in what He would have me do (in this scenario)… Cris.
As a parent there can be few things that make you feel more helpless and useless than when your premature or sick baby is whisked off in an incubator! You have to stand back whilst your baby is put on a ventilator, wired up to noisy monitors, poked, prodded and subjected to painful and invasive procedures. Your entire being; your biology, your heart and soul are screaming out to love, nurture and protect this precious little scrap, yet you can do nothing! As a new mother, every nerve, sinew and hormone is programmed to hold, love and nurture the new arrival,. You know all the interventions, as painful as many of them are, could be life saving. So you have to stand back, let strangers take over and somehow keep a lid on your viscerally raw emotions and instincts, your baby’s life depends on those strangers and there is absolutely nothing you can do.
Or is there?
Back in 1992 when I faced this situation, there was nothing I could do. I didn’t know Emotional Freedom Technique or Reiki. I had no way of soothing myself far less helping my daughter. A bit later we were allowed to put our hands in the incubator, find a tiny piece of flesh which didn’t have a monitor or cannula on it and touch her but that didn’t compensate for not being able to pick her up, hold her or feed her.
Back then, like millions of other parents, I used will-power and determination to get through the long days and nights and continue to function. Many medical staff complimented me on how well I coped. Of course I wasn’t really coping, I was simply repressing painful emotions which is never healthy and brings it’s own problems further down the line!
Emotional Freedom Technique is definitely number one on my list of things I wish I’d known back then!
How You Can Help Yourself and Your Baby With Surrogate E.F.T. Tapping
It’s wonderful to see Emotional Freedom Technique becoming more widely known and accepted. It is very quick and easy to learn and amazingly effective even in the hands of complete beginners. Not all teachers know, or will tell you, that E.F.T. can also be done surrogately. You can tap on behalf of someone else even when you are not with them.
As we are using loving intention and energy, time and distance don’t matter. You can tap for your baby no matter where you are!
I won’t speculate on how or why this works, there are many different theories and for the purposes of this article, all I care about is that it helps someone out there.
Firstly Soothe Your Self!
We often project our fears onto others. In such a traumatic situation as the birth of a premature or sick baby you have to soothe yourself first. We are no use to anyone else when we are in deep trauma and shock ourselves. Your baby feels your emotions and energy so by soothing yourself you also help her.
Three Ways to Tap On Behalf of Your Baby
Tune in to your baby and tap for whatever you feel or can see is upsetting or traumatising them. The obvious ones are of course, pain, fear, isolation and any painful medical interventions.
1. Tap On Your Own Body As Yourself
Simply tap as you normally would, but rather than state you have the problem, use the baby’s name for your set up statement. “Even though (baby’s name or my baby) has this problem (state problem) I deeply and completely love and accept (baby’s name). Do the same with your reminder phrase.
2. Tap On Your Own Body As Your Baby
Similar to the method above but sometimes this helps you tune into how your baby is feeling more accurately. Bearing in mind how connected you are with your newborn it’s not surprising that you often feel exactly what they are feeling. Set your intention that you are your baby, then tap around as though you are the baby. “Even though I have this problem” etc. Remember to disconnect and come back to yourself when you are done.
3. Using A Proxy Item To Represent Your Baby
This can be a really useful way to help you focus. Any teddy bear, doll or other toy will do. Simply intend the toy to represent your baby and tap around the points as normal.
The Question of Permission
As a parent you only have the highest and best intentions for your child, your heart and intent are pure and loving. In the higher realms we are all connected, we are all love, we are all one. If you feel the need to ask the baby’s higher self or soul for permission do so but I truly don’t think anything done from such love, care and compassion can ever cause harm.
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.

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.
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”.
Your body is amazing! Do you believe that? Or do you just see that you no longer fit in to your clothes, “ugly” stretch marks or swollen ankles?
Research suggests that up to 80% of pregnant women report moderate to severe dissatisfaction with their bodies. A quick google search of “I hate my pregnant body” confirms this. What message is that sending to your body or your unborn child? How does it contribute to your happiness or well-being?
