Tapping Into Truth

At lunch earlier this week, my friend suggested – based on her experience – that I be truthful about my business actions. When I said I would remember to be honest, she reminded me to be “truthful.”

When I thought about it, there is a difference. If I was asked if I completed actions that I needed to do to move my business forward, honesty would be saying, “I intend to do them; they are on my list. But I did do X, Y, and Z.”

If I was truthful, the answer is simple: “No, I did not.” There’s no weaseling out in truthfulness. There’s no getting around what you know is true.

As parents, it’s helpful if we are truthful with ourselves about our children and our parenting. We should be especially truthful about who our children are, not who we want them to be, nor who they should be according to society or how we grew up, or who they will be in the future.

Just them, right now.

If you see your children for who they are now, you will better be able to see when they need help (they don’t act out because they are bad kids). You will create less stress in your family. And you can shift your experience as a parent to being more loving and less frustrating.

Tapping is an excellent way to identify where your beliefs and expectations don’t match your reality. It’s also excellent at taking away the charge you may feel about letting go of those expectations and any regret, resentment, anger or fear you may have around it.

And it’s never too late. Your child can be 30 and learning to see them for who they are can help create a better, closer relationship than you’ve ever had before.

Tapping is for Kids Too

My primary focus in this blog will  be about the benefits of tapping for moms. But tapping is excellent for kids too!

Just think of the difference it can make in a child’s life to remove the charge around an upsetting event right after it happens. There’s no need to carry the pain with them for years and years.

And tapping can help them with stress and anxiety — such as on test day or when they’re asking someone on a date or a beloved pet passes away.

Tapping can work its magic quickly with children. They don’t have years of other experiences reinforcing the negative emotions or beliefs they may have formed. They are not as invested as adults can be about holding because it feels normal or because they get something out of keeping their problem.

Tapping can also help them feel in control of their emotions and their decisions, helping them stay grounded within themselves as they navigate the tricky waters of growing up.

The Tapping Solution has a page with many videos on tapping with kids.

And if your child is willing to try it, you can schedule a tapping session with me either in person or on Zoom.

Me – An EFT practitioner!?!

Becoming an EFT practitioner was not in my plans.

I had never before considered going into the healing arts or self-help fields. But one day, I woke up and that’s what I decided to do.

It was time.

After almost two decades of my own healing journey, after so many years of wanting to help others move through their pain, my heart said to do this.  And unlike other times when I thought I knew what I wanted to do, I jumped right in and actually followed through.

I’m so glad I did. It is exactly what I should be doing right now. And it came to me pretty quickly that I want to work with moms.

Being a mom was really hard for me. I had never planned on or dreamed about being a mom before I actually had a baby. When my kids were little, I had so many wounds and self-loathing that, frankly, I wasn’t that great of a parent. I think about how their lives would have been different if I had been more aware, less wounded, better able to give them what they needed rather than always acting out of my own needs.

I know that other moms are more conscious parents than I was. And I also know that raising children is frustrating and overwhelming at times, no matter how great the kids or how great the parent.  Tapping is a wonderful tool for so many of the challenges of raising children. Examples of how moms may like or need support include:

  • They don’t set good boundaries.
  • They lose their temper more than they want.
  • Their child is going through a difficulty and they don’t know what to do and they feel guilty, resentful or sad
  • They feel overwhelmed or like they never do enough.
  • They feel mismatched with their child – they never say or do the right things.
  • And so many more…

If you’re a mom needing support, you can schedule a 20-minute free consultation with me or go straight to the matter and schedule a 90-minute session.  Schedule an appointment

I know that as I help moms, I also help their children, and ultimately the world in becoming kinder, more harmonious, and more connected.
