I felt the desire on Saturday morning to write a post on loss. Little did I know that just a few hours later I would be experiencing my own loss. We lost our family dog that same afternoon. Dogs in our house get the very best and are loved just as each member of the family is. We are all empaths and so we experience high, highs, and low, lows of emotion. This was devastating to us especially since it was an accident and he was hit by a car in front of our house.
The reason why I share this with you is because it is the first time I have experienced loss and grief since having EFT as a tool. Up until now I have felt that as long as the person is mourning a loss in a positive and timely fashion, that EFT isn't needed immediately. I found out the hard way! I absolutely believe that it is an amazing tool to help throughout the grieving process!! Saturday I tried everything to shut off my tears. I tried everything to no avail. My husband sat down with me and I figured out the emotions involved and I muscle tested for the proper order to release them. We felt such a relief. It took the edge off. We have been able to grieve in a positive manner. We will continue to tap as needed to help throughout the process.
I am so grateful to have EFT in my life now. I have had to deal with another loss of a very special dog a few years ago and it was excruciating to me. I lost my Father a few years ago, in another excruciating blow. Loss is just plain difficult no matter who or what it is. EFT is the perfect tool to have whether a loss just happened in your life or whether it's been many years ago. What is very important in the process is that the negative emotions do not creep in and that the emotions do not get out of control and disturb life. This is possible with EFT. Keep in mind that extreme emotions will hurt us and our health. It does not take away from the love that you had for the person or animal. EFT doesn't make you forget about them, it actually makes it so you can grieve positively and properly. It makes it so you feel closer to them, under the circumstances. It's beautiful.
