The Root Of All Evil

54If money is the root of all evil, and the saying is the Gospel truth, then how come they ask for it at church? I discussed this with friends, and we came up with great ways to release money blocks. Read on for more.

Of course churches have to get money from somewhere, and with reasonable explanations. To help fix a leaky roof maybe, amongst other maintenance work that the money is needed for, as well as posters and other materials needed to help bring people who need a loving community and pastoral care to church.

I am used to the collection basket, where everyone puts in what they can afford. That is quite different from the dubious churches that ask people to pay their life savings.

Now, if you have read the Bible, you will find that the real quote is: "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil." And the rest of it is: "Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. "Money is not a human or animal, it is an inanimate object. And when Humans waste the feeling of love on just about any inanimate thing, that can lead to evil doings, especially to the living beings the people should be giving love to. Money is simply a tool. It has no feelings or agenda. People give money feelings, and unfortunately, some people become obsessive about it. "The Love of Money" in the biblical sense may actually translates to the word "Greed", which pretty much seems to be the root of most suffering. And what ultimately is the root of greed? I think it is fear, and that is the root of all suffering. After all, it could be argued that there are two main emotions; love and fear.

However, it is all very fine talking logically about this. It is another thing entirely actually feeling it. This is where tapping comes in.

Let us use the SUE scale to measure how true this statement feels to you: "Money is the root of all evil". Where -10 is the most rue it feels and 0 is not at all true, how true does it feel to your senses? Remember, we are not talking logic here. We are only measuring how true you feel it with your senses, rather than logical thinking. If anything less than zero, tap the above statement on all your favourite points unit it feels like a zero. Simply tap "Money is the root of all evil". There is no need for any tongue-twisted statements. Simple is good.

Once you reach zero, ask yourself what would make you feel even better. The simplest way is to choose one word, such as "calm", "safe", "sharing", "peace", or "security". Whatever positive word comes to you is good. Tap until you feel a shift in the positive direction. This is moving up the SUE scale from a neutral 0 to a joyful +10. Keep tapping, using whatever positive word comes to you, simply saying the word on each of your favourite points, till you reach a +7 or beyond.

Anger and Emotional Self-Expression

67Anger calls for movement and action, increased heart rate, and breathing. When expressed, anger doesn't linger or transform into rage. It is an emotion without intelligence, and the idea is to let it go and pay attention to what created the anger in the first place-what needs to change and how are you going to respond. Usually this step involves a form of communication to other people and to yourself.

Artists spend significant parts of their lives developing the most authentic ways to communicate their emotions, and most basic emotions can not be articulated into words. Composers and dancers focus on communicating and transforming the deepest emotions from something that can hurt them to something beautiful. It's a choice they make.

In theater, it's not a problem to attach an emotion to a sound and breath it out. You don't always need to wait for someone else to make you angry. Emotions build over time, and as you tap into them, they will decrease in intensity and you will feel more connected to your less intense emotions. Anxiety and tension block this process so a portion of the work is to loosen muscle tension.

Start small by expressing a little bit of anger, call it expressing an annoyance. Practice this and the more you learn to express it, the better you can manage the emotion when you are around other people. Dealing with emotions like this takes time and practice, it's an active process different from taking a pill which is passive.

Painting, dancing, writing, etc. are all used to find better ways to express and work through emotions. Other ways are talking about your feelings and searching for other ways to express your self with your body. Each of us has unique ways of expression and some of them are healthier than others.

Once you uncover a way for you to process anger and begin to listen to its messages, you will notice its intensity drop, allowing for a wider range of emotions to arise like joy and happiness and other subtler emotions. Anger will no longer overwhelm all of your other emotions. The important aspect of mind and body is that once you convince yourself that it is a valid point of view, you can begin to build personal techniques to attend to your emotions by monitoring your body and then responding to the feelings by allowing for self-expression.

Changing The Relationship You Have With Fear Using Tapping

ghWe need to learn to change the relationship to fear if we are to begin living our lives in a richer, more fulfilling way. Author and speaker, Itzhak Berry, calls it "The Inner Warrior" and stresses the need for us to welcome challenge and adversity as a pathway to growth and rebirth.

This is about not running away from fear but to see it as a part of a process towards your definition of success. As soon as you declare that you want something that you don't already have, you're creating a gap that needs to be filled. Sometimes that gap can lead to a feeling of dis-ease within us that can manifest as fear.

Whether we succeed or not in getting what we desire depends in part on the way in which we interact with this fear. Those who are the most successful in life may show up as those who don't experience fear. This is not necessarily true.

Some of the most famous performers in the world regularly feel physically ill before they go on stage. The difference between these individuals and those who shy away from anything they find fearful is that the former have learnt to work through the fear because they know that their wildest dreams are on the other side of it.

One of the ways you can help yourself to change the relationship that you have with fear is through Emotional Freedom Therapy ('Tapping'), also known as EFT.

EFT helps you to define each element of the fear that you're experiencing. This encourages you to express it rather than deny it or try to keep it concealed. By freely expressing your fears you begin the process of confronting them and seeing them for what they are.

Very often confronting your fears helps you to realise that they are not as damaging as they at first appear. Tapping on the individual aspects of your fears as they arise prevents them from spiraling out of control and taking you into a dark place.

It is therefore good practice to begin taking note of what makes you fearful. Make a mental or physical note of the individual aspects that make up the fear (e.g. palpitations, hot sweats, difficulty focusing, memory problems, nausea etc). Take each aspect in turn and tap on it until the emotional sting either disappears or is brought down to a level that no longer overwhelms you.

Once you have tapped on each of the aspects, check in with your level of fear again. Notice any changes. If the level is still high, tap on each aspect again until the fear itself either disappears or is brought down to a level that no longer overwhelms you.

Using the Emotional Freedom Technique to Optimize Your Health!

csGuide to Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Technique is a psychological acupuncture technique that is used to optimize emotional health. Although emotional health is still often overlooked, it is absolutely essential to our physical healing and health. Regardless of our devotion to proper lifestyle and diet, we can never achieve optimal preventive and healing powers if emotional barriers are still standing on the way.

Emotional Freedom Technique will help you:

  • Get rid of negative emotions
  • Eliminate or reduce pain
  • Reduce food cravings
  • Implement positive goals

The energy meridians used in EFT are similar to those that are used in acupuncture to treat emotional and physical ailments but without any invasiveness. Instead, tapping is used to input kinetic energy into various specific meridians on the chest and head while the individual thinks about their specific problem and voicing positive affirmation. The problem can be anything such as an addiction, pain or traumatic event.

The combination of voicing positive affirmations and tapping the energy meridians using your fingertips works to clear the emotional block from the body's bio-energy system. This restores your mind-body balance which is essential for the healing of physical disease and optimal health.

There are two main areas you need to learn in order to use Emotional Freedom Technique effectively:

1. Tapping techniques and specific tapping locations

2. The positive affirmations

You can treat numerous problems by applying the following instructions diligently

Tapping

The basic Emotional Freedom Technique sequence is simple and straightforward and usually takes most people just a few minutes to learn. Although it's important to ensure that you are tapping the correct area, you should not worry about being very precise since focusing on the general area is also sufficient.

You will be tapping with your fingertips/pads and this is primarily because the fingertips have several acupuncture meridians. Therefore, when you are tapping with your fingers you are not only using the meridians in the specific area you are tapping, but also those on the fingertips. In traditional emotional freedom technique, the patient taps using the fingertips of the middle finger and the index finger and with one hand only. The side you use doesn't matter since most tapping points exist on both sides of the body. Moreover, it does not matter if you decide to switch sides during the process. For instance, you can tap under your left eye and later in the process, under your right arm.

You can also use all your fingers and both hands. Form a gently curved line with all your fingers in a gently relaxed manner. This allows you to cover a larger area and access all the acupuncture points. However, most people achieve success with the two finger one hand approach. Although it's essential to use your fingertips because they have more meridian points, you can use your finger pads if you have long nails.

Tap solidly

You should always tap solidly but not so hard as to bruise or hurt yourself. If you are using both hands, alternate the tapping slightly so that your hands are out of phase with each other. This will provide a kinesthetic variant of the work that is usually done by the EMDR (alternating eye movement) and will have some additional benefit. You should tap about 5 to 7 times (the number is not important but should be the length of time it takes for one respiration cycle; a full breath).

Tapping points proceed down your body which basically means that each tapping point is located below the one before it. Although the sequence is not really important, it is vital to ensure to tap all the points.

Tapping Points

1. Top of the head: Down the centre of your skull with fingers back-to-back.

2. Eyebrow: Just above the eyes at the beginning of the eyebrow and to one side of the nose.

3. Side of the eye: on the bone that boarders the outside corner of your eye

4. Under the eye: On the bone under your eyes about an inch below the pupil

5. Under the nose: this is the small area between the top of your upper lip and the bottom of your nose

6. Chin point: Midway between the bottom of the lower lip and the point of your chin. This area is called the chin point mainly for descriptive purposes.

7. Collarbone: This is the point where the breastbone (sternum), the first rib and the collarbone meet. This is a very important point especially in acupuncture and is referred to as K 27.

8. Under the arm: This is at the side of your body, about four inches below the armpit; usually at the point even with your nipples (for men) or the middle of your bra strap (for women).

9. Wrist: The point inside of both wrists is the last point. Rub them gently against each other.

Remove your watch and glasses before Tapping

Watches and glasses can electronically and mechanically interfere with Emotional Freedom Technique. Therefore, it is recommended that you remove them before tapping.

So you now may be wondering if Tapping Therapy (or Emotional Freedom Technique) can help you in anyway, in particular dealing with traumas, addictions, or other challenges that you may be faced with at this time,
