Migraine Relief Using EFT

Being a migraine sufferer for so many years, I was truly desperate until one day, I spoke to a friend who is pain theraphist and he suggested that I should try EFT which means Emotional Freedom Technique. It’s like giving yourself acupuncture but without needles, it’s the technique of finding and tapping your pressure points. I wasn’t sure what to think so I watched the video on you tube, link is :

and after watching the video and reading the comments I was actually impressed so onward I went to research EFT for headaches and migraines on the internet to see what I could find for myself.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is just that, its emotional freedom. It’s positive, uplifting thinking and its self healing. Think about it, when you have a headache or migraine it is painful for sure but have you ever thought about how emotional it is also? It is a negative feeling and negative energy is bad for all of us. Let’s take a quick look at some EFT beliefs:

*Migraine and headaches are disruption of subtle energies circulating throughout your body.
*Migraines and headaches can also be triggered from emotional unresolved issues.

*EFT is designed to realign the body’s positive energy flow and address the cause of the disruption.

*When done correctly EFT will actually teach a person how to identify the disruption, correct the energy flow and to basically heal itself.

According to people who have studied this technique and many who have tried it, the pain relief will vanish for most people in a matter of seconds and for other people it greatly reduced the pain but did not feel complete relief. There have even been reports that some long time migraine sufferers using EFT have never had their migraines return! So, now let’s take a look at how and where to apply this tapping technique.

The EFT Technique in its basic form: There is an affirmation which should be said as you tap each pressure point. This should be said out loud as you tap each area:

“Even though I have this migraine, I deeply and completely accept myself.” Repeat this three times.

The Set up:
Rate your pain. On a scale from 0 to bad is it?

You will use two fingers together, tapping lightly, on an average of seven taps per point and don’t forget to say the affirmation at each point also.

Step one:

With the finger pads of your index and middle finger (dominant hand) begin tapping the fleshy part under the thumb of your other hand. Then you will continue tapping the following areas while saying you affirmation:

*Inside end of your eyebrow

*Outside corner of your eye, right on that bone

*Under the center of the eye*Between the nose and the upper lip

*Just below the collar bone

*Crown of the head

*Under the arm.

After you are done rate your pain again and see where you are. You can do this as many times as needed until the pain is reduced or gone completely.

EFT is great for people who have tried everything else and still deal with migraines regularly, also great for those who would like a natural approach to pain relief. I am definitely going to try this technique when I experience my next migraine. EFT is also for more than just headaches, it’s being used to deal with anger issues, addictions, phobias, and anxieties. There are no side effects so it’s safe to try. Please remember this is not meant to be a cure all, or to replace your doctor, but give a try and see what the Emotional Freedom Technique can do for you.

My Son, The Mowerman!

Hello, everyone. Sorry I've been out of action for awhile. Been busy with family commitments. Hopefully, I can get connected again. Missing everyone here.

Last week, the grass at my place were quiet long so my son decided to mow it for me. He look so serious and I thought it would be nice to show it to my friends.

The Learner Driver

Last weekend, my son decided to take my hubby and I for a drive to Brisbane. He had to build some hours up in his log book before he could go for his driving test. He still has a while yet to go before he gets connected with the driving school. I’m really proud of him as he does look confidence behind the wheel of the car. I really praised my hubby as he is more patient in teaching him than I am. Although I can drive however, I don’t think I am as good at teaching my son to drive as his father. Most of the time, I am just happy being the backseat passenger.

Seeing my son taking control over the steering wheel does shows how fast he is going up now. Seems like it was only yesterday when he just started school and now he is driving a car! How time flies! He is indeed growing up and I am indeed getting old!!!

Australia Bushfires

Each day the evening news has been updating the Victorian Bushfires in Australia. The whole tragic event started one Saturday two weeks ago. Many people lost their homes as well as family and friends. I was quite saddened to learn that the death toll had reached 209. Even Australian wildlife was also silent victims of the deadly fires. I knew most of these towns that was affected as I did visited them in the past. I still cannot believe that they are not there anymore! Most of the fire victims are still dazed and grieving over their loss.

Bushfires are very real in Australia. When I used to live in Melbourne, a few years ago, I remembered during the fire season, the sky was really red and the sun was glowing red. It was an eerie feeling, kind of like the end of the world. The reason why the death toll is so high this time was because the fire came so swiftly without any warning during the early hour of the morning and most people were asleep in their homes. Bushfires are caused by arsonist, strong wind and hot dry weather. At this tragic time, it is so good to see the sprit of the people of Australia come together to help the fire victims by donating food, clothing, shelter and even raising funds both local and overseas to help them to get them back on their feet. The true heroes here are the fire-fighters, polices and medical staffs. They worked tireless hours trying to get everything under control.

As I view this devastating event unfolded, I am so over-whelmed at the generosity of most Australian who opened their hearts and wallets to help the unfortunate victims of the bushfires. Even the flood victims in northern part of Queensland whilst being stranded in flood water, were not even deterred from donating all they have to help their fellow neighbours who lost everything to bushfire! This is truly a love story to tell on Valentine Day!
