Sadness can be overwhelming. It's a feeling I don't like to feel. I push it away. I make myself busy with everything and anything so I don't have to feel it.
But, that never works. It actually makes it worse. When we don't allow ourselves to feel our feelings they get louder and louder until they explode. That's what happened to me this week.
I repressed my feelings. Even though I know how important it is to acknowledge my feelings, I refused to do it. I turned my back and kept marching on. And then I hit a wall.
I had an EFT session with a fellow practitioner this week. She asked me, "What do you want to invite in? How do you want to feel?" My answer was simple, "Healthy, strong and at peace." With that one question I could feel the tears welling up. I'd been carrying so much on my shoulders. Trudging on. Making do. And suddenly I had the freedom to really answer - to be seen - to be heard.
I put it all out there. I shared my sadness. I shared the story behind my sadness. I tapped. I cried. I released all the emotions that I'd been pushing down, trying to hide. For the first time in quite some time, I felt heard. I could take a deep breath.
It's days later now, and I feel lighter, stronger, and more peaceful. My intentions came to be.
That's the power of EFT. That's the power of baring your soul with someone you trust.
You are worthy of feeling good, of feeling free, of feeling at peace. It may not be an easy path, but it's always worth the effort.
This week I thought it made sense to do a tap a long video about sadness. If you are feeling sad, I hope this helps. Honor your feelings. Allow yourself to feel them, and allow yourself to move through them. You deserve that freedom.
If this resonates, please reach out. I'd be honored to guide you through an EFT practice.
