The Stress Test Study That Shocked the Researchers…

“75 to 90% of all doctor visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.”

~WebMD

*|FNAME|*  GOT STRESS?  As the quote above states anxiety and stress are one of the biggest underlying causes of doctor visits and health issues.  The following study was performed by Dr. Dawson Church, PhD and Dr. David Feinstein, PhD, and measured the stress hormone cortisol levels before and after treatment.  They were shocked at the results.  I have personally used EFT Tapping for myself and hundreds of clients over the past 7 years and I can attest to it’s emotional effectiveness!  Now here are the numbers…

“83 participants were divided into 3 groups: the 1st group received an hour of  EFT Tapping; the 2nd group received an hour of psychotherapy (“talk” therapy); the 3rd group (control group) received no treatment.

The researchers measured cortisol levels before and after the treatment. Cortisol was measured because it is known as the “stress hormone” of the body. As stress goes up, cortisol levels go up.

When the researchers were measuring the cortisol levels of the Tapping group after treatment they thought they had a problem…

The levels had dropped so significantly in such a short period of time that they thought there must be something wrong with their equipment.

They kept re-calibrating their equipment and retesting until they finally came to the conclusion that there was in fact…nothing wrong with their equipment but rather that…the Tapping worked!

Results: The 1st group (Tapping) demonstrated a 24% decrease in cortisol levels; the 2nd and 3rd groups showed no change in cortisol levels.

The reality: Psychotherapy alone relieves stress, but over a long period of time. The immediate benefits of psychotherapy don’t register in your body, where excessive amounts of the “stress hormone” cortisol still run rampant, putting your health at risk.

Study findings:  Tapping balances activity between the sympathetic and parasympathetic regions of your brain, producing “a neutral emotional state,” the gold standard of health and wellness.”

GOT STRESS?  As the quote above states anxiety and stress are the biggest underlying causes of doctor visits and health issues today.  Stress permeates so many areas of our lives, our health, our emotions, our relationships, our jobs, our finances and sabotages our overall quality of life.  What if it didn’t have to be that way?

Understanding the Wounded Child Archtype – Can you relate?  I sure can!

Understanding the Wounded Child Archtype – Can you relate? I sure can!

As some of you know, I’ve been working on narrowing my niche for sometime.  I’m feeling wonderful about the work I do as an Inner Child Advocate.  Ever since I read about the Wounded Child archtype in Carolyn Myss’s book Sacred Contracts I felt completely drawn to it.  I AM a wounded child so that’s why I relate to it so strongly.  This is the work I’ve been doing but I had no idea on how to marketed it properly.  (most likely because my wounded inner child has been running my business for the past 6 years.  So afraid of making a mistake and getting in trouble.  So hard to deal with my shame of not feeling good enough…………

The more I’ve used tapping to nurture and take care of my wounded inner child the more enlightened and helpful I feel I can be.  Don’t’ get me wrong, I’m human and still a work in progress but it’s made a world of difference!

 

I’m so excited that I recently came across a beautiful description of the Wounded Child archtype written by Susanna Barlow.  I’ve edited her essay below a bit for clearer understanding for you but you can read it in it’s entirety by clicking HERE.

 

The Wounded Child archetype has experienced some kind of initiatory wound in their early life. This experience creates a lens through which the Wounded Child views their circumstances and the motives or actions of others. This usually happens at a fairly young age when the child is highly impressionable. his experience or string of experiences acts as an initiation inextricably linking the Wounded Child to the path they were meant to live. I call this the lens of pain.

This lens (created by the initial wound) through which all things are now experienced colors, defines and shapes the way the Wounded Child perceives their life.

The Wounded Child is easily caught up with the victim, getting stuck in the story of suffering, feeling hopeless, worthlessness and heaviness. Themes of rejection, failure, unworthiness and longing are all prevalent in this archetypal pattern. The wounded child can feel abandoned, misunderstood, unloved, uncared for, even by themselves. They are sensitive to the pain and emotions of others often to the point of confusing others emotions with their own.

The pain from this childhood wound will replay itself over and over in the adult life until the trauma or wound is tended to and healed. Only then can the inner child mature and develop the gifts that are inherent to the Wounded Child archetype. For example, if you were bullied at school or picked on by siblings, cousins or other peers you will continue to feel bullied as an adult by co-workers, friends and other peer groups. If you were abused by a parent or an adult you may feel abused by your boss at work, the IRS, the government or any other perceived authority figure. Your reactions to this perception will match the way you coped with the abuse or bullying as a child. If you were sexually abused as a child you may perceive your spouse or partner through the highly distorted lens of your own sexual abuse. You will recreate the dynamics experienced in childhood with you as the victim. If you suffered a handicap as a child and needed constant care you will recreate the dynamics of invalid and caretaker in one of your personal relationships.

 

The Shadow Wounded Child

  • always looking backward, remembering both good and bad memories and somehow transforming them all into a painful melancholy.
  • running from his or her past and feels  haunted by the heaviness of memory.
  • blames the wound or wounding on much of their adult life problems.
  • looking backwards & creates if only phrases like:  If only I wasn’t sickly I would be able to do more & contribute, If only I had been loved and cared about I might have turned out better, If only I had been treated with respect I wouldn’t be so angry all the time, If only that hadn’t never happened to me my life would be better
  • Fear of change:  if they heal their wounds their life will change. Change equals loss. Loss is unbearable. They already feel like they have lost something deep and intrinsic and therefore they are clinging to everything else.
  •  Fear of letting go:  Another of way of looking at this could be “fear of letting go.” Letting go of an old identity, letting go of your children or spouse, letting go of your anger and resentment, letting go of sadness or the victim role and letting go of how others perceive you are a few examples.
  • Feeling misunderstood:  They are easily offended and hurt and others often feel they have to “walk on egg shells” around them.   The intense need for others to understand them while simultaneously believing that others can never understand leaves them feeling emotionally raw or needy.
  • drawn to other people’s suffering and tragedies. A fascination or over-investment in someone else’ pain or heartache is an attempt to understand their own pain and heartache which is usually too overwhelming to confront.
  • feeling of brokenness sets up a pattern of shame; shame for being depressed, shame for being not good enough, weird, angry, resentful etc. This shame, unworthiness or hopelessness traps the Shadow Wounded Child

Sometimes the Shadow Wounded Child does not associate their painful story with the past but upon examination it will be obvious that their current thoughts are old stories created out of past beliefs and experiences thus making the stories (from today) feel irrefutably true.

 

 The Wounded Child is desperately seeking to understand the pain that seems to be lurking in the background or foreground of their life.

It may seem to others that the Wounded Child does not want to be healed, but the Wounded Child senses that the wounding of their life has some value, some unnameable worth that causes them to keep the wound open and raw.

I want to be loved. . .

I want to be loved. . . is the story of the wounded child. I want to be valued and important. I want to matter to someone and be seen by others as worthy. All of these are shadow aspects of the Wounded Child because the Wounded Child cannot make others love them or see their true worth. This leaves them feeling continuously needy of others love and acceptance and they seem to never get enough of it. They want to give  to others but feel that the wound prevents them from being able to give so they get stuck in a cycle of want and emotional impoverishment.

The Enlightened Wounded Child

Forgiveness:   Forgiveness or the need to forgive is a theme for the Wounded Child.

  • Forgiveness is what happens when you stop rejecting what you believe to be the cause of your suffering.
  • Forgiveness is opening up to the bad thing and allowing it in. You may be surprised to find relief in this and that it in no way diminishes the pain but actually validates it in a way that nothing else does.
  • The Enlightened Wounded Child has a tender and open heart. This makes them open to wounding but it also makes them open to forgiveness.
  • For the Enlightened Wounded Child forgiveness is a way of life. Forgiving the past, forgiving the hurt and forgiving the losses or in other words making room for the past, making room for the hurt and making room the losses means you don’t exactly let it go as much as you widen your capacity to hold it and end the resistance to it.

 Standing in the Fire

The Enlightened Wounded Child discovers that by entering the darkness of their pain and working through it, that they can stand in the fire of pain and not be burned. Their capacity to get close to others’ pain without getting caught up in it, makes them ideal healers, doctors, nurses, therapists and others in the healing arts. They are like mountain men who know a particular terrain and can be a guide for others who are passing through. But this mountain is where the Wounded Child lives and has made their peace. They have mastered the art of letting go, embracing intense emotions and being a channel for others to release their pain. Suffering, pain, sorrow, and depression are all places the Enlightened Wounded Child has been and is not afraid to revisit. Rather than avoiding it, the Enlightened Wounded Child embraces these “negative” aspects of the human experience. They learn that some wounds aren’t meant to be healed but to be understood. The darkness becomes depth and the pain is only a sharpener to maintain keenness and sensitivity. Compassion can then be developed and the Enlightened Wounded Child is deeply compassionate and caring.

The Gift of the Wound

 

Capacity to Love Others

In its shadow the Wounded Child is looking for others to love them but the Enlightened Wounded Child knows that what they really long for is giving love to others. I want to love is truer for the Wounded Child than I want to BE loved. Unconditional love is part of the Enlightened Wounded Child and therefore they are brimming with affection and compassion for others. They are usually the friend that others turn to for understanding and support. They have a strong desire to understand others deeply and are usually non-judgmental and openhearted. They have overcome their fears of rejection and know that they can handle whatever comes their way. The Enlightened Wounded Child has learned that to Give is to Get. Understanding others is the key to understanding themselves. Giving love allows the Wounded Child to feel and receive the love of others freely and unconditionally because they have learned to love who they are enough to share that love with others. The Wounded Child gains the sense of connection and belonging that they felt was denied them, when they can be who they truly are and to be authentic and real. Many a Wounded Child has felt ashamed of their wound, that it makes them less of a person when in reality it makes them more. They have more to give, more understanding and more tenderness, rather than less. The wound when properly recognized and confronted becomes a light of hope to themselves and the rest of the world.

Conclusion

When transformed from the shadow to the light the Wounded Child archetype is a powerful example of the resiliency of the human spirit. They are open, tender, vulnerable and wise. Their life experience has taught them that the pain that once dominated their life is the source of their compassion, their insight, depth and wisdom.

Got Shame?  Me too!  (Good thing, otherwise we might be sociopaths!)

Got Shame? Me too! (Good thing, otherwise we might be sociopaths!)

Dear Friend:  Happy Tuesday!  I hope this note is finding you well.  Today I’d like to share some info on shame.

Shame…. Not the thing that most people want to talk about.  And if you ‘re pretty sure that shame doesn’t apply to you, keep reading: that will be cleared up in just a sec.

I’ve been reading one of Brene Browns books, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be brene_brown_on_belonging-421290Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead and as a vulnerability and shame researcher she talks a lot about shame.

Are you still with me?  YAY!  Keep reading… it’s gonna be beneficial I promise.

Brene tells us about what shame is, how it affects us and about how to deal with it.  I would like to end with  how EFT Tapping can help us deal with it from a core level:

1)  “We all have it.  Shame is universal and one of the most primitive human emotions that we experience. The only people who don’t experience shame lack the capacity for empathy and human connection.  Here’s your choice:  Fess up to experiencing shame or admit that you’re a sociopath.”

2)  “We’re all afraid to talk about shame.”

3)  “The less we talk about shame, the more control it has over our lives.”

If you are still reading, congratulations!

She’s funny and savvy and helps us to see shame from a safer perspective.  Her words (and tapping) are really helping me with my own shame (yep!  I’ve definitely got it too!  It’s controlled a great deal of my life and that’s probably one of the reason that I grew up to be an Emotional Freedom coach!).   Since we’ve all got it, and it’s wrecking havoc with most of us,  I just wanted to share some of her wisdom with you.

First, if you haven’t heard of Brene Brown, and you’re reading my newsletters, you need to know about her.  In a nutshell Brene is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work and has spent the past decade studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.  Click the links to watch her  20 minute TED Talks  The Power of Vulnerability (2010) and Listening to Shame   (2012) and both went viral.  (Viral?  Millions of views! Somebody must be relating to what she’s saying about shame!!  SMILE)  She’s also been on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah and has workshops on Oprah’s website.

What is Shame?

Brene’s definition of shame is “the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging.”   She goes on to say, “We are psychologically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually hardwired for connection, love and belonging.  It’s why we are here.  Shame is the fear of disconnection — the fear that something we’ve done or failed to do, an ideal that we’ve not lived up to, or a goal that we’ve not accomplished makes us unworthy of connection.  I’m not worthy or good enough for love, belonging, or connection.  I’m unlovable. I don’t belong.”

Shame is destructive.  It corrodes the very part of us that believes we can change and do better.”

However, there IS hope….

What is the answer?  — Shame Resilience

Brene says, “the answer is shame resilience.  (NOTE: Shame resistance is not possible.)  As long as we care about connection, the fear of disconnection will always be a powerful force in our lives, and the pain caused by shame will always be real.”   Her definition of shame resilience is “the ability to practice authenticity when we experience shame, to move though the experience without sacrificing our values, and to come out of the other side of the shame experience with more courage, compassion and connection than we had going into it.”   Shame resilience is about moving from shame toempathy — the real antidote to shame.”

Now here’s where EFT Tapping comes in….

“Shame resilience requires “thinking” and that’s where shame has a huge advantage. When shame descends, we almost always are hijacked by the limbic system.  In other words, the pre-frontal cortex, where we do all of our thinking and analyzing and strategizing” (our conscious mind that controls only 5% of our perception and behavior)  “gives way to that primitive fight-or-flight part of our brain” (subconscious mind that controls 95% of our perception and behavior).   Our fight or flight mechanism is effective for survival, not for reasoning or connection.  And the pain of shame is enough to trigger that survival part of our brain that runs, hides, or comes out swinging.”

What if we could “desensitize” or take the “sting” out of the subconscious automatic survival triggers of shame that are no longer serving us? Typically those emotional “buttons” that trip our shame triggers were installed back when we were small children.  When we felt shame as a small child, we gave it a meaning and the meaning was typically that there was something wrong with us such as we aren’t smart enough, good enough, worthy, loveable or a whole host of other meanings that gave us the feeling of shame.  Those childhood meanings and emotions live with us long into our adult lives unless we are able to process them.

EFT Tapping is designed especially to do just that!  When we are emotionally triggered in some way our body goes into fight or flight,  the threat response mechanism in our brains called the amygdula is turned up and our heart pumps faster, our muscles tense, the threat hormones of cortisol and adrenaline course though our bodies and the blood in the thinking part of our brain rushes to our arms and legs to prepare us to fight back or run away leaving little resources for thinking through the shame resilience .  With EFT Tapping we are able to turn down or off the physical reaction to the trigger.  It’s a little like updating our GPS.

If you are ready to dismantle your shame triggers with EFT Tapping email me at gwen@yourstrongestlife.com to schedule your one hour  introductory phone session done from the comfort and privacy of your own home or office.  If you don’t experience some relief in the first session you can get your money back. What have  you got to lose except your shame?

Hugs!

          If you could just get out of your own emotional way,

you are your own worst enemy.

One day, about 14 years ago, sitting in my therapist’s office continuing to search desperately for answers… why did I feel so bad about myself and  how could I stop emotionally beating myself up!  Then she said something  that caught me off-guard “well, yes you are a victim of child abuse…” and went about describing the homework she was asking me to do for the following week as if this “child abuse thing” was common knowledge.Beach Balls -2

WAIT I stopped hearing her!

I instantly felt disconnected, “ME??  Child abuse?  Naaa….” Then I felt the reaction in my body. It gripped my gut and I instantly felt fear, the need to back pedal everything I’d told her up to this point. I felt like I HAD to protect my mom. She was my mom after all!  That terrified little child inside felt that if I didn’t protect my mom, I would get in big trouble and get hit with the wooden paddle again.

The more it sank in… child abuse??…. really?… Is that really what that was? All this time I thought there was something wrong with ME, “I” had been doing something wrong. “I” wasn’t good enough. “I” was the bad little girl. That’s what my mom always implied. I thought she had been right about all those things she had growled at me for when she was angry, and hitting me with the wooden paddle, the shaming comments “you’re just crying to get attention” or the angry wagging finger in my face “you SHOULD be ashamed of yourself!”

Child abuse? This couldn’t be child abuse, could it? It wasn’t THAT bad. I wasn’t getting hit… well, sometimes. It wasn’t sexual… well, then there was THAT time… It WAS pretty emotional!  The doubts and confusions were swirling in my head like the scary things flying past the window in the storm scene of the Wizard of Oz… even though I knew somewhere deep inside she was right.

Childhood Trauma –What is it Really?

According to Dr. Robert Scaer MD, trauma specialist, a trauma can be anytime we’ve felt helpless, powerless or overwhelmed or when our safety or the safety of someone we loved was threatened.

The following are some common events that may cause childhood traumas:

• Parents divorcing when you’re young
• Financial struggles in the family
• Serious illness or death of a parent, grandparent or sibling
• Being adopted
• Being born with a birth trauma or defect
• Having problems at school
• Abandonment issues
• Sexual, physical or emotional abuse (even mild)
• Sibling issues (birth order, rivalry, teasing or competition)
• Living with alcoholic, drug addicted or depressed parents
• Growing up with emotionally distant or absent parents
• Living with parents or caregivers who were critical, controlling or demanding

From the perspective of a small child these events and experiences can be terrifying, traumatizing and life altering.

I call them emotional beach balls.

When we are busy trying to subconsciously “stuff” and hold down all those old painful memories and emotions from childhood such as fear, shame, guilt, sadness, feeling unworthy and unloved, etc. it’s like trying to hold a beach ball under the water.  It keeps trying to pop back up again.  The more emotional beach balls we are trying to hold down, the more they drain our energy.

Then we grow up and decide to start a business… we want to help others, while we desperately keep trying to hold down our own invisible beach balls.  Many of us as women entrepreneurs who are passionate about making a difference in the world have experienced some type of trauma or wound in our own lives (often in childhood) or have witnessed something ugly in the world, not necessarily to us but to other people that we cared about, and it made us want to do something about it. Many of us have read every self help book and spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in talk therapy only to be disappointed and continue to struggle and feel stuck.

As successful entrepreneur Ali Brown says, “There’s no better personal development tool than starting your own business.”  Starting your own business is often a perfect environment to bring up all of those personal beach balls to deal with or as I like to say, gives us an “opportunity” to heal those childhood trauma’s.

The Good News:

• What if we could let the air out of those beach balls safely, relatively quickly and often permanently?

• What if we didn’t have to go back and slosh through all the gory details re-traumatizing ourselves all over again?

• What if we could take the physical “sting” out of the memories and experience them from a different, more manageable perspective?

• What if we could begin to live our lives through the lens of strength, confidence and empowerment vs helplessness and overwhelm?

• How might that change our day-to-day lives, in our relationships and our businesses, now and in the future?

Now with the help of EFT Tapping I am able to help you to let go of the leftover childhood fears, traumas and debilitating limiting beliefs that are keeping you stuck today.

As an Advanced Level EFT Practitioner and Inner Child Advocate, I am extremely passionate about helping other women entrepreneurs like yourself advocate on behalf of that scared little child inside who has been running YOUR business and dealing with YOUR finances. 

Let’s help HER to clear the inner emotional blocks and obstacles that are keeping HER stuck such as:

  • fear of failure,
  • fear of rejection,
  • fear of putting herself out there,
  • fear of looking foolish or
  • being less than perfect
  • and even fear of success

…allowing YOU to make THE difference YOU are here to make and live Your Strongest Life.

The world needs you!

Are YOU really ready to get out of your own emotional way?  I invite you to email me at gwen@yourstrongestlife.com to schedule your complimentary 30 minute chat.  Your inner child will thank you. She doesn’t have to do this all alone anymore!

Hugs!

PS  I’d love to hear your thoughts below… let’s get a conversation going.  My experience with Emotional Freedom coaching is that we are more alike than different and that MOST of us have had some childhood trauma’s that are holding us back as women entrepreneurs today, even if many of them are invisible and stored in our subconscious. (The number one question I get asked when women are considering if YSL is a good match for them or not is, “What if I don’t know what to tap on?”  Exactly!  Most people don’t.  That’s the beauty of EFT, you don’t have to!  As we calm you body down, and it feels safe, it does all the work for you!  As your tour guide, I just ask the right questions!)

We just think we are the only ones that feel messed up, and that everyone else has their act together.  Well, I assure you, that is not true!  I KNOW I’m a work in progress and it’s wonderful to have a tool like EFT on our side!

PSS   I invite you to join us for the FREE Third Thursday Teleseminar on Thursday May 21st at 10:30am Pacific / 1:30pm Eastern.  The topic:  Q & A about EFT:  What have you always wanted to know about EFT but were afraid to ask?

Tapping and Venting and Shifting the Energy…

Tapping and Venting and Shifting the Energy…

Friends:  We got on the call and my client, Molly (not her real name) startedVenting to complain about her parents, who live in Europe, and that her mom is sick and how her Dad, sister and brother are handling or not handling it.  As she vented for a bit I remembered to have her start tapping while she was venting.  Using tapping while venting is one of the simplest ways to reduce stress and tension and a wonderful tool because you are releasing pent up negative energy while doing what you would do with a best girlfriend.

After about 10 minutes of tapping and venting she started to get a bit clearer.  She told me that her Dad had told her to back off, “you’re being mean to your mother,” but she thought she was being really good.

I sensed this was a good time to dig a bit deeper…   I asked her how she was feeling when she said that.  She responded, “in the beginning I was the mediator and I listened to mom, and  I felt like I was being a really good daughter.  Then when they started to kind of attack my sister, then I got in defending mode and thought they don’t need to talk that way to her!”

My mom is sickly and I get worried because when I call I don’t get any response.  I got pissed off at her and want to tell her a thing or two. When she did answer the she was feeling so poorly that I thought I can’t say anything right now.  All I’ve gotta do is be compassionate. So then I didn’t call for three days.  I’m not gonna call them.  I can’t stand listening to the crap anymore.  My dad finally realized that she was about to die so he called an ambulance in the middle of the night and they called me at 3am.  She had a blood transfusion, it’s bad!  Of course I’m worried.  they are like two damn kids fighting… Do I have to keep taking care of those two for the rest of my life?

I asked if they are different now or have they always acted like little kids?  Well, they’ve never communicated well.   I reminded her to keep tapping…  “I’m continuing to tap, or I would have never come to the conclusion that I’m sick of taking care of them!”  (laughter).

They have always complained about each other and they don’t do it to each other, they do it to us kids.  Part of me feels like the good girl for listening and being so damn nice.  The other part of me feels like I just want to scream at them. Why don’t they just grow up and take care of themselves and sort it out by themselves?!

But if I think that about my parents…that makes me feel like I’m not being the good girl or taking care of them the way I should be and that makes me feel…UGGHH!  I’m starting to feel all kinds of things… uncomfortable.

“This feeling…”  “This feeling…”   “This feeling, I don’t like this feeling…”

I think it’s a little bit of fear because if I speak my mind she might die. Then I would feel like I would be the cause that she died.  So no wonder I can’t speak my mind.  No wonder I have to hold these feelings inside or stuff these feelings.  (YAWN!  Yawning is a good sign, a release of blocked energy)

I don’t’ want to be the black sheep and the one that always gets yelled at and made to be the problem in the family because… they’ll send me away.

That would make me feel very, very abandoned and lonely.  No wonder I feel this way.  That reminds me of the time when I was a little girl and (YAWN) and they sent me away… I was only 2, 3, or 4 years old.

They sent me to my aunts and uncles because they were so tired of me (tears).  I was just a little girl.  They were so tired of me because I caused so much drama when I didn’t get attention.  I needed some attention.  I was just a little girl and I got punished for needing attention.  But I did some pretty mean things (in a very serious tone) like when I…  (laughter) got on the kitchen table and took the bottle of  water and threw it on the floor… (laughter)

WOW! THAT was a really mean thing to do when I was 3 years old!  It was REALLY mean!! No other 3 year old EVER did anything like THAT!!  (laughter)  No wonder I got sent away…  WAIT!  I got sent away for THAT?!

But it wasn’t only that I did a lot of mean things…

Tell me more and keep tapping…

I don’t know all the stuff they just told me all the stuff I did.  I don’t remember it.  They told me ALL of the mean stuff I did.  SIGH.  It always made me feel like I was the cause of mom and dad fighting and talking crap to each other.

(Serious…) No wonder I feel like this when they’re talking crap to each other NOW!  Because I always thought it was my fault. They always said I did mean things I thought it was my fault.  I was just a little girl and I did regular little girl things.  (laughter)  …and they said I was mean because no other little girls did those things.

I wonder if that was true?

I wonder if they were just saying that.  Maybe it WAS true.   Maybe it WASN’T (YAWN).   Maybe they were just saying that to make me mind.   Maybe they needed a parenting class…   Going in between being really serious and laughter:  “They didn’t just maybe — they fucking needed a parenting class!!!”  (laughter)  “They needed some parenting classes and some marriage counseling — how to communicate!!”

But I took it all personal (laughter) cuz I thought it was about me. They handed all this junk down to me and they still do!  I was just a little girl back then I didn’t know I could say no.  (Big YAWN)

I can say NO now!  I can say “Grow Up!” in my tapping session and “get a life of your own!” (laughter)  Go to a parenting class!!  Got to marriage counseling!!

I’m Fucking sick of this!!  I’m fucking sick of all this crap!!  I just want to release it and let it go!  I chose to release it and let it go.

Cuz it was MY job and I did a really great job of it!   But I’m fucking sick of it now!  (laughter) No wonder I moved to the states to get away from that crap!

WOW!  It feels so much better to just bitch about this while I’m tapping!  So I can just release this and let it go. It’s not serving me at all anymore (YAWN)  I chose to keep myself safe and just release this shit and let it go!

What a relief!

She said, “Good grief!” as she blew her nose.

I explained to her that I take YAWNING as such a high compliment during tapping.  She said, “Yes I could feel it shift like I was getting in my own power.”   [I’ve done this before with my Matrix practitioner but I never really cleared it.  You are much more “there” and I connect much more with you to release it.  I really want to thank you for that!  I really appreciate it!  I never felt safe enough to do that with him.  I know I changed a few words but you’re right there and you know the right things to say.  That same memory is what keeps coming up. That same memory wouldn’t keep coming up if it were completely cleared.  The memory that I was sent away.]

Finger Tapping – Talking to Little Molly

Go to a point in your life where you felt especially strong, confident and secure, you felt really good about yourself.  She thought about earlier that day, she has a lot of land and she was looking out over her property. It’s beautiful!  She called it “The View.”

Then I asked her to go back to the very first ,memory she got sent away when she was a little girl.  Where did your mind just go when I asked you that?  The memory that keeps pushing through is when I’m standing in my Aunts hallway with my bag and they have left me there.  I was only about 3.  It feels terrible!  I feel it in my gut/ belly button an intensity of about an 8 or 9+.

Walk into your Aunt’s house where little Molly is standing in the hallway.  Everyone else is frozen.  What does little Molly want you to do?  She sat down and put little Molly in her her lap and gave her a big hug.  What do you want to tell her about that experience?

You are not the problem.  You’re mom is very, very worn out and it’s not your fault.  I know you feel like it’s your fault but it’s not.  She’s not doing well, and she doesn’t have a support system but that is not your fault!  She is just not able to take care of you kids on her own right now and she feels that you will be better taken care of at your Aunties place, because she loves you not because she wants to get rid of you.  She wants you to be taken care of.

You know that all of your Aunt’s love you and they are so caring and take care of you and you know you actually like it here.  I know you felt like you were being sent away and you were afraid that they wouldn’t come back and get you, but they will.  I bet that made you feel scared.  In fact, I know exactly how you feel because I’m your adult self.

Don’t be so shy.  Go ask your Aunt for advice when your older cousins are teasing you, go tell your Aunt.  If they are being a little tough on you and you are having a hard time standing up for yourself.  They are just doing it because they are kids and they like you.  So don’t get so upset.  At home you are an absolute hellraiser so be a little hellraiser here at Auntie’s too!  Just tell those older cousins to shove it!

She started laughing and said, “She really likes it when I say that!”  I asked her why and she said, “she liked it when I told her to be a little hellraiser because that makes her feel so much more powerful than being the shy girl and being scared.

She was taught not to be a hellraiser.  She had to behave all the time and she’s afraid of being a hellraiser at Auntie’s house.  She’s really great at being a hellraiser!  A hellraiser isn’t mean, a hellraiser is just having fun and stirring things up a little bit which she thinks is needed.

We are really glad that you turned out to be a hellraiser.  I’m always here for you. I didn’t know how much you needed me and I know you felt alone but I’m here now.

Maybe I’ll take you to see the view…  Ohhhhh ya!  Ohhh that was a good one!  I know you felt like you were sent away but really it might have meant that you were giving mom a little time to rest and you weren’t the one to blame — a gift for you.  You weren’t getting yelled at and blamed for things for awhile. You were able to go somewhere where people were nice and caring for you and you could recharge your batteries.

Ahhh… that’s what gave me the courage to go to Germany to move to America, to travel — the rest of the family never traveled. Damn right it gave her the courage to be the little hellraiser.  The traveling hellraiser!!

It’s a very good gift can you tell how …Ohhhh…this is beautiful  It’s great!  Hell, it taught her all kinds of things.   Taught her to take care of herself.  Look at you how much you’ve done — you were able to go away and stay with other people  a week at a time and you took care of yourself. You managed to do that and you were always very liked by your Aunties and cousins and Uncles still today.  You have the greatest bond with them all and they love you to death.

When we finished I asked her what her biggest Ah-Ha was:  I don’t think my parents sent me away because they loved me  (it doesn’t bother me now because it was such a gift.   It was meant to be.  They made more problems. It makes complete sense now what’s been going on the last 4-5 months, it’s not my crap!  I can support and help her but it has nothing to do with me. WHEW!  Very good!  Little Molly went off to play….

This is awesome Gwen!!

More Finger Tapping – Talking to her Parents

I had her go back to her Aunts house with her strong confident self.  She went out and sat down with her parents on the steps.  They are frozen, can’t talk back.  What do you want to say to them on behalf of little Molly?

I’m still kinda mad at them.  She started finger tapping….

Both of you guys gotta realize that you are not doing a very good job parenting and I still want to believe that you love all of your 3 children but for some reason you two are not doing a very good job.  Your frustration and tiredness are taking a toll on her mostly. She is trying her damn hardest to please you both and you two have to hug her and tell her once in awhile that even if you get mad that doesn’t mean that you don’t love her.  Sometimes I know you get tired and upset and you say things but you do love her.  Don’t tell her your adult problems (we are so tired of you) tell her this is her little adventure.  She isn’t old enough to know about all this stuff you are bitching about and can’t sort out.  Don’t tell her you’re sending her away because she is being bad!

She hasn’t been that bad. She gets frustrated because she doesn’t get enough attention and love so she does stuff.  Tell her instead “oh let’s go have an adventure.  Let’s go see your cousins for a week. Wouldn’t that be fun instead of telling her this is a punishment because that just makes her whole world upside down and shes afraid that she’s gonna be sent away for life.

I asked her how she was feeling and she said, “I’m feeling really good!”

We went back to the beginning when she was standing in her Aunt’s hallway and her parents were about to leave.  Little Molly felt it in her belly button a 8 or a 9+

What is it now?  I was gonna say 1 or 2 just because your supposed to say a number but there is nothing there (laughter).   It’s a ZERO!!  The image I got was her standing there with her little bag just waving at them, “See ya later guys…”  Her bag had travel stickers.

The Traveling Hellraiser!  (laughter!)

The next time you are overwhelmed with negative emotions, frustrated or angry try tapping and venting.  You’ll be surprised at how calm and relaxed you feel in a very short period of time!

I’d love to hear what you are thinking below or what happened if you’ve tried it for yourself!

If you’d like to do an INTRODUCTORY one hour tapping session via the phone from the comfort and privacy of your own home or office please email me at gwen@yourstrongestlife.com.   Only $75 ($125 Value).

Stress is expensive… Emotional Freedom is priceless!

Clearing the Shame from that “Poor Me” Feeling…

Clearing the Shame from that “Poor Me” Feeling…

Friend:  Welcome to Your Strongest Life Emotional Freedom coaching!  I hope you are feeling some peace and true emotional freedom today, however,  if you are like most of us, you may be triggered by a thing or two that’s keeping you awake at night and from building the business and life you love — YOUR Strongest Life.  If so, the following tapping script may be helpful for you.

Have you ever gotten that “poor me” feeling in your gut, err… I mean, “some” people feel that way, right?  Maybe not YOU!  (Smile)  If you ever have, you may have felt  embarrassed to feel it like you would rather die than to admit you were feeling it… right?  You try to push it down like a beach ball under the water but it keeps popping back up.

Not too long ago I decided that I was tired of trying to wrangle this feeling of “poor me” to the ground and decided to face it head on with tapping once and for all.  I came up with some amazing insights.  My first HUGE insight was that our subconscious minds are very literal.  Sort of like the genie in the bottle, “Your wish is my command.”   So I started to notice when  I was feeling that “poor me” feeling was that my subconscious mind  feeling sorry for myself or did that pertain to my wallet?  Or both?  Or maybe I was feeling sorry for myself because I didn’t have as much money as I wanted to have in my wallet.  (Smile, who knows!)  The subconscious mind works in mysterious ways.   However, I know is that in the past I was sooo ashamed of feeling this way that I could NEVER have written it here for all of you to read!!!   I could BARELY admit I was feeling it to myself.   LOL!   Well, today, as you might be able to see, I’m not only writing it without a strong painful emotion attached to it, but I’m finding it humorous instead of deadly shaming!  Emotional freedom truly IS priceless!!

While I was sobbing and tapping for myself on this “poor me” feeling (yes, even Emotional Freedom coaches have these moments!)  I started to realize that maybe I’m not the only person on the planet who has ever felt this way. (Smile)  So I started to write it down. Below is my script.  Some of it may apply to you and some of it may not.  Feel free to change the specific language to fit your own situation.   I wish for you the relief that I’ve received from it.  (And I was amazed and delighted about the money making ideas for my business that popped into my head the next morning!)

(Eyebrow)   Maybe I can just let it go.

(Side of Eye)  Maybe I can feel safe, even when I feel poor me.

(Under Eye)  Maybe I can release the shame.

(Under Nose)  Maybe I’m more normal that I thought.

(Chin)  Maybe poor me is just a feeling, along with all the other feelings I feel…good and not so good.

(Collar Bone)  Emotions are just energy-in-motion and I know that when I don’t let myself feel them, and process them, they just get stuck and that’s what causes me pain.

(Under Arm)  I choose to just feel and release that poor me feeling.

(Top of Head)  It is what it is and I’m ok.  What a relief!

Upcoming NEW Program:

Burn Out Prevention for
Women Entrepreneurs

Did you know that 70-80% of all visits to the doctor are for
stress-related and stress-induced illnesses?

Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress.  As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest, motivation and passion that led you to become an entrepreneur in the first place.

Burnout reduces your productivity and saps your energy, leaving you feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful. Eventually, you may feel like you have nothing more to give.

Are YOU ready to eliminate some stress?
