When we get news that devastates us, we can feel very alone. Whether we learn that a loved one has passed on, we get a diagnosis of cancer, or we lose something else dear to us, the impact is often overwhelming. Tapping can sometimes only soften the blow. But any comfort is much better than none.
This is is from a woman who is facing a medical diagnosis none of us ever want to hear.
I really do feel all alone. Am I capable enough to get thru this? I can’t afford not… to I have young kids to take care of. If I am not here who will be? –Sue
We’re sorry you feel so alone. We know that’s a terrible, frightening feeling.
Could you imagine a group of family and friends there with you? Including both of us and all the other EFT experts you like? All sitting around, tapping for you and sending you warm wishes and energy? So you’re surrounded with all kinds of flavors of energy? We could have tea or hot cocoa or lemonade (because it helps calm our primitive brain when we have something comforting to drink), and just be there with you?
Being alone is one of the most challenging feelings we face. It can undermine the strongest heart and the bravest soul. Especially for those that value connection and love.
Would it feel okay to do a little tapping on that?

Take a deep breath.
There are moments when we face the darkness alone. We do think they show who we are at our heart. Those moments bare our soul, and we are changed forever by them. We know you have the courage to do this, whatever the path may bring. (And it may help to remember courage doesn’t mean you never kick and scream and moan….)
To you, right NOW, we’re sending wishes for a surprisingly easy and gentle healing journey.
