I’ve been thinking a lot about the healing journey I’ve been on and the journey I see in others. There are five parts I’m noticing, the first four I can name — the fifth is unknown still! I hope to touch on each of these over a few blog posts.
The five stages of our journey
- Heal our wounds on a personal level
- Heal our wounds on a family ancestral level
- Understand ourselves and our gifts and role in the world
- Understand and participate in the larger, collective evolution from fear to love
Heal our wounds on a personal level
Even before I started using tapping for myself and sharing tapping with others, I had this deep thirst to feel better, this drive to free myself from the wounds and losses of my younger years. I had already been in therapy and doing self-work for years. I wanted to fix myself, and rightfully so. I was carrying a lot of stress and stored trauma in my body. While I wasn’t really broken, I was healing what had been hurt. I’m immensely grateful for the tool of EFT/tapping and its ability to gently and permanently change the impact of stressful, traumatic experiences.
When I started my healing journey, I felt like my heart-space was a deep pit of black despair that would never end …. it was incredibly challenging and painful to face and took a lot of courage on my part with help and wisdom from others. Now, I feel love, connection, discernment, and wisdom in this warm, expansive, endless place that feels like home.
But I didn’t get there just with tapping. During my time with tapping, I came across Family Constellations, which brought yet a whole other level of freedom ….
I will write about that in the next post …
