Thoughts and insights from a Holistic Health practitioner
So Why does Tapping work?
by Linda Anne Ledwidge
Our body is an amazing machine, it is constantly regenerating, self-healing, self medicating and working to ensure the continual flow of blood and oxygen to all the organs and to maintain a balance of all the hormones and chemicals produced within. Our body does this naturally............until we get in the way.
Are you aware that at least 95% of all illness and disease is caused by the way we REACT to ....
Stress occurs when your mind believes that you are in some kind of danger – whether emotional or physical.
Your body pumps adrenaline into your system to give you a boost.
This is called the “fight or flight” response.
The ideal scenario is that only life threatening situations trigger the stress response in our body which allows us to act quickly with less thought and faster reflexes.
However in our society the stress response is often triggered by a ringing phone, a deadline, a boss, a family member, watching television or any number of other non-life-threatening situations.The long-term effects of continual stress are dangerous – even deadly – to our health and happiness, and, as you can see, stress is everywhere.
Some common effects of excessive stress:
Tapping on the body´s energy meridians (using some of the Acupuncture points ) effectively sends a message to the brain that says “ I am safe” , "there is no threat" and the brain then takes the body out of the “FIGHT OR FLIGHT “ mode. We then become relaxed and allow the body to do what it does naturally.

Are you a multitasker?
You may well be able to do more than one thing at a time however it is impossible
for you to :
Notice that all of these have one thing in common - what we would call good or bad, positive or negative effect.
You see... you cannot feel good and bad at the same time.
Can you be happy all the time?
Living in this world today we are constantly encountering people, places, events and things that we have differing responses and reactions to.
Our mind and our senses are being bombarded with billions of data every second.
to keep us sane (at least a little!) Our mind and body has its own unique filter system so that we are only aware of what is important to us or what we are focused on at the time.
You may be dealing with something that you do not like.
You may see, read or hear about something that makes you feel sad, angry or frustrated.
Whatever you are feeling, thinking and focusing on you will notice more of it all around you.
You ask " How can I feel happy when so many things that I don't feel good about are happening to me and around me? "
Let me explain....
I am not saying that you can feel happy about these things, however the more you feel the negative feelings the more difficult it will be for you to feel good about anything and you will miss the" good " things that are happening too.
So how to shift the focus and therefore allow your filter to open up to what else is out there?
When you see, hear or experience something that you do not like -
Ask yourself, is there anything I can do to change this right now? to improve it?
If there is, and you want to, then do that, if there is not then make the decision not to think about it, talk about it, blog and post about it or focus on it for now.
You will be amazed at the difference this makes to your life.
As soon as we decide to look at things in a different way or to not focus on things that we do not feel good about and cannot change we allow the things that we do feel good about to come into our awareness AND we even start to look at the things we didn´t like in different ways.
YOU ALWAYS HAVE RESPONSE - ABILITY
.......IT'S A CHOICE
ABOUT WHETHER YOU WANT TO BE RESPONSE - ABLE!
THERE IS ALWAYS CHOICE!!!!!!!!!
