I dont expect eft to cure my skin problems in itself. I know there are physical reasons for my skin issues. BUT, at the same time, I do believe in law of attraction, the bad power of negative thoughts, and even just stress itself making things worse. I feel in a lot of ways, the pain Ive had to go through with this disease, has created a downward spiral where Im constantly upset about the disease and therefor attracting more disease and upset to me (the secret). Yet, its extremely hard to get out of that "im ugly and depressed about it" mindset when your face is covered with infection and scarring.
This is where Im hoping eft will help me. Im using it to try and clear the negative feelings. Im so full of anger and sadness because of my skin condition. I did my first eft session this morning. It felt nice. I dont feel like all the anger and sadness is gone or anything, I just feel more relaxed about the anger, if that makes sense. Im hoping more sessions will help me, along with some of the techniques from the book "the secret" and also, plain old excercise to help relieve stress.
I also would like to use eft for underlying pain, that could be contributing to disease as well. I was molested as a child and there are parts of me that have never felt "right". Most of the time Im fine, but I know there is still something wrong in there because sometimes, when something triggers me, I have intense waves of pain over it, have bad memories and just cry for hours. Its weird though, its so locked down deep, I cant even feel it most of the time.
Im looking forward to doing more work with this therapy. I like it, its simple and very interesting.
