Since the body is the holder of our secrets, sometimes gentle, sometimes vigorous bodywork can bring hidden issues to the margins of our consciousness to signal new work to be done.  This can be a surprising process, especially when we think we’re just going out for a run but during or afterward find some troubling past or current issue has surfaced for our attention, seemingly out of the blue.  Potentially challenging experiences can be turned to advantage by inviting our bodywork to be a full partner in our EFT/Tapping sessions.  Dance, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, walking, swimming, or running become vital components of our spiritual, emotional, and intellectual evolution when we consciously invite our movement experiences to contribute to the deeper truths we are seeking about the Self and our current stage of growth.

Sometimes we are faced with challenging situations at home, at social events, and at work, that require we leave our comfort zone to speak an unpopular truth.  Situations in which our values are challenged run the gamut from personal agonies over telling a friend the truth of our feelings regarding a specific situation to addressing a nursing home situation to protect the health and well being of residents and their family members.  These situations require deep soul searching, loving kindness, and moral courage.  Tapping can help us to make more informed, emotionally intelligent decisions regarding how to speak our truth in family, social, or workplace situations that trouble us.

Tapping to Harmonize Group Energies

Most of us live in a world of group dynamics, whether at the family dinner table, in the conference room, or in the lunchroom.  In our relationships, conflict often feels inevitable as people function with too little sleep, poor nutritional choices, differing values, and even open hostility emanating from unhealed wounds.  As unlikely as it sounds, we can harmonize these energies with a tapping partner or on our own.  Tapping to harmonize relationships is a very exciting process to initiate and experience, especially as it flowers and bears fruit.

New Year New Habits – Part One: Seedlings

One spring when I was digging in my garden, a wise Silver Maple Tree offered an eloquent and entirely visual response to my curiosity about growing through one stage of life into another.  Dripping with maple keys, this wise old Tree Being planted Herself over and over again in every corner of my garden.  As I removed last year’s dead-leaf mulch and gently turned the soil to transplant a  sprig of lily of the valley, I inadvertently dislodged one of these keys from its Earth home.  Swollen, purple, and marked by fissures in its outer skin, it told me everything I needed to know about growth.  Looking at that bursting seed I understood:  in its initial stages, growth requires a period of darkness and mystery.

Finding our Place Under the Moon

As the days grow shorter and the weather colder up here in the Northeast King/Queendom of Vermont, the archetypal energies of Winter descend, bringing with them the hallowed space for reflecting on our lives.  Some relationships feel absolutely right, some in flux, and some in need of Triage.  Our dominant culture, what Clarissa Pinkola-Estes calls the Over-Culture, often encourages the pumped up “just do it” standard of change.  Pushing through, sucking it up, and soldiering on manifest in news stories, documentaries, TV sitcoms, and real-life dramas. And yet, our wiser selves know the bullying approach to personal and social change seldom brings about the harmonious energies we long for in every aspect of our lives.
