It's monday 01/12/15 . I am a little frightened . I had a counseling appointment with a woman who is a Masters level certification with the energy phychology emotional freedom techniques. I went in to see her this past Thursday. We focused on my feeling overly responsible over my two adult children. My son is really in some hard times in North Carolina while i am in florida. But the therapist asked me to start tapping on my associations and emotional attachments around my son. I started crying. It was my unresolved emtional pain from the past where I had been wounded. The tapping exercise brought up some " post trauamatic injuries" and when that emotional pain came up in arose up on the left side of my neck and face. Of course there was a sharp pain that brought up a pain when I use to get headaches and nosebleeds when I was real young living with my rageaholic mother and she was a female batterer. I started crying. It hurt so much I shut it down emtionally. But then for the past 4 to 5 days that pain in caused my face and neck to get swollen.. Only today after calling a prayer hotline with unity 24 hr prayer hotline did I feel I am finding some release. This is the first time doing trauma work and eft that anything like this has happened. I would love to hear others experince, strength and hope in how they may have handle similar situations. Thanks for your understnding and acceptance.
