I worked with a young student, Tim, who was struggling with self-esteem, heightened by bullies that had targeted him in school. As we worked on his self-esteem, it became apparent that he was also struggling from very bad allergies. The allergies were so bad, they filled his nose with green mucus, creating another reason for the bullies to continue to tease him. He was tested for seasonal allergies and all came up negative.
His parents asked me to help with his self-esteem, and the associated emotions this was driving. While we were tapping for the problems with the kids bullying him at school, I noticed we had to keep stopping from time to time because Tim’s runny nose was making it increasingly difficult for him to focus during the session.
When you are tapping on emotional issues, the energy changes, removing blocks from your meridians just like in Acupuncture or Acupressure. Tim’s discomfort seemed to be getting worse, not better, with the heavy nose congestion but it was, in fact, shifting it and releasing the congestion. This is very typical of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).
The Tapping worked! Within 20 minutes, by the time we were finished tapping, Tim could breathe through his nose clearly. All the mucus had gone. Although, he still sounded nasally when he talked, he didn’t have any discomfort. By the second session, all the nasally sound in his voice was gone. We were able to effectively address the emotional blocks on Tim’s self-esteem, and his resulting allergy problems.
With his newly rebuilt self-esteem – the provocation and teasing from his schoolyard bullies simply rolled off him, and they lost interest in him. I stayed in touch with the family for some time after, and he has not suffered with allergies since.
So, my takeaway here is there is a real connection between our mind and body, young or old. When we conceal issues inside us, hiding them away, they reveal or manifest themselves in our bodies. Tapping into your emotions, replacing negative energy with positive energy will always leave you feeling more happy, more energised and ready to embrace the world.
