This is a general message I am posting to all of the groups I belong to:
I just thought back to when I first found DS soon after it first began and what a different life I had then. It is much better now, mainly because I have my own apartment as opposed to living in an old travel trailer in somebody's driveway. But even that could have been much worse than it was. I have been here now since Nov. of 2009 and a lot has happened. I had a relationship with a man who I connected with like I've never connected with anyone else and doubt I ever will. Unfortunately although we both battled his severe addictions, he passed away on 9/11/2015. Since then I have been picking up the pieces and collecting myself to recover from that, losing my oldest son to suicide in 2005, and a miriad of other assorted issues that got shelved and not specifically dealt with along the way in my past and since. All along I have not been able to find effective resources or solutions to my many "deep seated" issues until last year when I found The Tapping Solution on Facebook. I have spent the last year working on it here and there and this year it is congealing into something solid for me to work with. Last year when I first discovered it, they were just about to have their 10th annual summit and now getting ready for their 11th one.
*A note to those in the Bereavement group and others in intense acute pain at the moment: While this method is effective, please don't expect it to take away all the pain you are feeling immediately. Just as with any physical wound, it takes time for emotional wounds to heal as well. But this will undoubtedly be helpful to calm your nerves and ease your pain.
Here is some info about it in case you are interested:
EFT tapping, AKA, Emotional Freedom Technique tapping, involves tapping on a series of certain meridian points on your body while speaking through certain issues you focus on in order to identify and release the negative emotional charges that get stored in your body that can cause stress and pain, and blocks your normal energy flow in your body which can also make you feel tired and sluggish. I started doing it about a year ago when they had their 10th annual summit, and they are getting ready to do their 11th one starting February 25th. They have many people endorsing it, some of whom I was familiar with before I discovered this program, like Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dr. Christiane Northrup who I've seen on OPB, and Iyanla Vanzant who I saw on Oprah years ago when she had her show.
I have been working on it here and there throughout the year and am looking forward to this year's summit. It is structured in such a way that for 10 days, you get an email with a link to several video options you can choose from to watch as many as you want to on different aspects and topics to choose from. You don't have to watch them at a specific time, you will have 24 hours between each emailing to watch the previous days' videos. The summit is a great way to learn about how it all works and the different types of styles you can use. You will need to sign up if yoou want to participate. If you're interested, check it out here:
I have a problem with money. I spend it. It has been a month since I have bought anything that I do not need. I have not been to the craft store and limited online medications and stuff. Last month I bought clothes I needed and medicine and made 1 trip to Michaels for supplies needed. I am saving 2.00 a week and have accumulated 40.00 so far. doing better but still want to be able to keep it up...
Hi all. Can't stay long, but wanted you to know I've been super sick from a stomach bug I brought from Mexico. My new little baby tummy I got after my December weight loss surgery didn't have the old flora and fauna in it any more I grew as a resistance to such bugs when I grew up there as a kid. Anyway, I've missed you all. I've never been off of DS for days at a time like this. I...
