Tapping and ADD - An Older Article


EFT for Christians receives questions from all over the globe about a multitude of tapping subjects.
There is a steady stream of inquiries about tapping with ADD or autistic children. Yesterday this was posted on another EFT board. The technique is old as compared to how we tap today, but there is no reason it cannot be adapted to meet today's tapping standards. The language is a bit different, but perhaps this link will help someone out there!

Since EFT tapping has a calming effect when used, it would make sense that it should be helpful for at least some parts of a child's life who has a hyperactive streak.

In my EFT for Christians YouTube instructional video series, the first 4 YouTubes (Videos 1-4) are about tapping with children. These videos are collected ideas and thoughts about using EFT on the little ones.

Remember, EFT is not a substitute for sound medical advice. Please consult your own personal physician before doing any tapping work.

Personal Peace Procedure Tapping

This article explains a bit of how trauma forms and gets lodged in our body, and Craig makes a good point in this quote below:
"It is also why when EFT is being done and we start thinking about a childhood memory that at first seems rather innocuous and we start tapping and tuning into the memory, we commonly discover far more emotional intensity than we originally expected to find there."
It is this particular point that pinpoints why we say when using the "Personal Peace Procedure" always add EVERY memory, good or bad, to the list because often as you tap the memory you will find lots of emotional stuff underneath you honestly didn't know was hidden there. The little unexpected, hidden sensory pieces that when repeated often enough (and once is often enough) create our perception (that may be false impressions) about what life is all about. It is these perceptual core beliefs that we use as guidelines and guide posts for the rest of our lives, boxing us into a very small area of existence.

Remember, EFT is not a substitute for medical help so please contact your own personal physician whenever emotional or medical assistance is needed.

Tapping & Metaphors

I liked this comment from Dr. Peter Levine about working with trauma, "The organism uses what it already knows to describe what it is experiencing. Don't take it literally. A sensation can feel like it is fuzzy, jagged, made of glass, wood, or plastic. Obviously, 'feel like' is the key part of the description. There isn't anything inside you that is really fuzzy or jagged, unless you have suffered some very poorly executed surgical procedures. The sensations just feel like these things. THEY ARE METAPHORS [my emphasis]. Sensations, however, can also be literal and correspond with information received from organs, bones, and muscles."

He goes on to explain that many of our memories are composits of multiple memories.

As we all learned in EFT class, the truth of memories is irrelevant just like the descriptions probably aren't literal. It is how it all FEELS that is important and the tapping changes those feelings into something more positive, neutralizing the negative implications in the process.

It allows us once again to become alive, spontaneous, ready to explore life as we once did as kids, enjoying every single moment as we step into that present mindfulness!

Please keep tapping!

Outcomes

EFT is an amazing tool to allow us to stop carrying emotional loads that we need to simply let go and let God handle.

Often we are too vested in other peoples' outcomes when those outcomes aren't up to us.

Tapping helps us divest ourselves of holding ourselves responsible for other peoples' actions, thoughts and habitual behaviors.

Let God handle it. Tap!

EFT is not a substitute for standard medical or psychological care, so please consult your own personal physician when needed.

Epigenetics and Tapping

Epigenetics is simply defined as the study of biological processes that will switch disease genes on and off. To say this simply – we only have less than 15% of our genetic material as completely predetermined. This might include height, hair color, shape of our nose, but our disease future is not only in God’s hands, but it is also up to our free will!

Because we know that emotionally negative life events do turn on disease genes, it is our choice to do the emotional work to keep these genes turned off, or perhaps to reverse any genes that have already turned on (allow God to heal us). This statement is powerful! God has granted us dominion over the earth (Genesis), but it also appears He has granted us more dominion over our own body than ever before thought!

Let me state this one more time. Highly emotionally charged life memories can allow disease genes, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, neurological problems, such as MS and ALS, etc. to “manifest” in our body. Conversely, it appears that negating and neutralizing those same highly charged events and the perceptions they left us with will do the opposite – keep disease, both chronic and acute, genes turned off, keeping us in good or better health. Research routinely continues to show us how powerfully important our environmental impact is to us.
Essentially anything we come into contact with including what we eat, where we live, who we grew up with, how we sleep and exercise, how we were treated by others, our educational and economic levels, sights, sounds, and smells in our everyday life shifts and changes our internal cellular chemistry.

Epigenetics, a relatively new science, has proven that cells are respond constantly to their environment. Each cell has internal and external antennae that continuously scan our body/mind and our habitat for clues it needs to maintain homeostasis. Our SC wants total stability; it hates change, so it acts like a chemist adding in a dollop of this neurotransmitter, or subtracting a dollop of that hormone based on what our conscious mind would consider insignificant environmental clues just to keep our body stable. Our genes respond situation by situation to all outside and inside thoughts, reactions, and situations, all of which are determined by our emotional perception to what is going on.
So, what does this mean to you and me? We have a greater control over our genetic “destiny” than ever imagined. The field of epigenetics has made it quite clear that our life beliefs and our perceptions about life events deeply affect our physical health. Those perceptions and beliefs literally turn disease genes on or keep them off.
Dr. Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist, has written an astounding book, albeit from a new age perspective, about this topic. Dr. Lipton’s research seems to prove we can move past our internal and external environmental stressors and move toward better health and well-being by down-regulating the impact of negative emotional beliefs and memories which then down-regulate our disease genes.
If you want to read further on this topic, pick up a copy of his book Biology of Belief. Another excellent book on this topic, another book that will amaze you, is Dawson Church’s Genie in Your Genes. I recommend both as good educational reading."
