I love to empower myself with self help books and when I first started reading self healing books, I was amazed to learn that so much of our pain is caused from stored emotions in the body.
That led me to think about many of my co-workers and friends who suffer from back pain. Many have no physical contributor to their pain and doctors can't find a medical reason, yet they are still in pain.
The only option many of them have is to pop a pill and mask the pain. That is fine for temporary relief, but the long term goal is to find the root of the problem and eradicate it like pulling a weed, root and all! If you don't pull out the root, the weed will pop up again, just like your back pain when the pain killer wears off.
Right now, many of you are saying, "but I have a physical reason for my back pain"!
For those that do have a diagnosed reason for your pain, there are emotions that are tied to that pain.
For example, I have a friend that broke her back in a car accident, and even though she has pins and rods and scars that give her pain, she still has emotions tied to that accident.
Those are the emotions I am talking about. The thoughts that still haunt you in regards to the event that led to your physical condition and pain.
I love Louse L. Hay's book "Heal Your Body", I have learned so much about myself and my body after reading her book.
Here's some interesting facts that I have picked up from her and other self help books about back pain:
Lower back pain: fear of money, lack of financial support
Middle back pain: guilt
Upper back pain: lack of emotional support; feeling unloved; holding back love
Typically, pain on the right side of the body is associated with finances and pain on the left side of the body is associated with relationships. For a minority of people, that can be flipped: right side = relationships and the left side = finances.
When I work with clients who are dealing with any kind of pain, I have them answer a questionnaire about the possible events and/or emotions associated with the pain. This enables me to get a better grip on the emotions that may be trapped in thier body.
Most are pleasantly amazed at the pain relief by the end of our session
By the way, 95% of my sessions are done on the phone!
I have provided a tapping script for back pain today!
Before you start tapping, please rate your pain and write it down on paper. Rate it from 1-10 with 10 being the worst. Describe the pain: dull, aching, stabbing, etc,
After 3 rounds of tapping, reassess your pain and write down your results. Did the pain number lessen, did it change locations, did it change from stabbing to aching? Write it all down.
Do a few more rounds and see if you can reduce it even further.
If you are new to this blog and unfamiliar with the tapping process, please see the "introduction to tapping" link at the top of this page.
It will provide you with everything you need to know!
As always, please change the words to fit your current situation
