Releasing The Feeling Of Being Tired of Carrying Other People’s Nonsense
Cathy: This is Jimanekia Eborn from https://www.SEwJim.com/ and I’m Cathy Vartuli from http://www.TheIntimacyDojo.com/. I do a lot of work using emotional freedom techniques as well as a coaching on intimacy. Basically I can pressure points where we can release some of the tension and stored energies in our body, help our primitive brain or survival brain relax, talk to our cognitive brain and we can have better insight sometime to move forward and Jimanekia to volunteer some tapping with me some things that are coming up and I was excited, thank you for being here.
Jimanekia: Of course! I’m excited to be relaxed.
Cathy: So, did you have some things particularly you want to work out or we just tune in to your body and find what it wants to be work out?
Jimanekia: Let’s just tune in. Let’s play with it.
Cathy: Yeah. I love to follow, our body is so wise. Take a nice slow deep breath and feel your feet on the floor. Maybe wiggle your toes sometimes it helps a little bit to you. Just did it to your body. Does it feel there’s a place that feels the tight or tensor places like me me me. I want to work on this.
Jimanekia: My lower back has not liked me for a while.
Cathy: Okay cool. Not cool a bit like that’s great news. If you tune into your lower back and close your eyes if you want to repeat your hand back there and just tune in to that feeling. How do you know that it’s not been happy with you? What do you sense? What are the sensations you feel?
Jimanekia: Achy, very tight, a bit of a throbbing. My movements are not as agile as I like it to be.
Cathy: Okay, so it’s kind of stiff and achy. Yes. Can I ask your lower back if there’s something that wants to stay or there’s a reason for this particular stiff and achy.
Jimanekia: Tired of carrying other people’s nonsense.
Cathy: Oh wow! Thank you. So let’s do some tapping on that, take another nice slow deep breath and you’re welcome to change my words as we tap if you like something seems if you have a better clear picture, go ahead and use those words. So, we’re going to start by tapping on the karate chop point which is the spot between the end of the pinky and the base of the hand where you would basically karate chop something and you just tap lightly there. And you can use many fingers as you like, just gentle tap kind of like the pressure use to tap on a tabletop. It’s firm enough if you feel it but you’re not trying to hurt yourself in any way. We start off with you and repeat back at me. Even though you don’t want to go up into the pinky, usually there’s more acupressure points down here at the base of the pinky [Inaudible 00:02:57]. Even though I have this all achiness in my lower back
Jimanekia: Even though I have this all achiness in my lower back.
Cathy: And my body is tired of caring other people’s nonsense.
Jimanekia: And my body is tired of caring other people’s nonsense.
Cathy: I am here for myself right now.
Jimanekia: I am here for myself right now.
Cathy: And I’m open to setting better boundaries.
Jiamnekia: And I’m open to setting better boundaries.
Cathy: Even though all these other people’s nonsense is in my lower back.
Jimanekia: Even though all these other people’s nonsense is in my lower back.
Cathy: I thank my back for being so strong.
Jimanekia: I thank my back for being so strong.
Cathy: And I let it know it does not need to carry this now.
Jimanekia: And I let it know it does not have to carry this anymore.
Cathy: Top of the head, the stress of my lower back.
Jimanekia: The stress of my lower back.
Cathy: Eyebrow, this achiness of my lower back.
Jimanekia: This achiness of my lower back.
Cathy: Side of the eye, I can’t flex when I’m carrying all this weight.
Jimanekia: I can’t flex when I’m carrying all this weight.
Cathy: Under the eye all this stuff from other people’s nonsense is right under the eye area. Yeah perfect!
Jimanekia: All this stuff I’m sharing other people’s nonsense .
Cathy: Under the nose, one of those it irritates me.
Jimanekia: It irritates me.
Cathy: Chin it frustrates me.
Jimanekia: And it frustrates me.
Cathy: You want to stay in the crease between the lower lip and the chin. Yep great! And the collar bone is right where the point of the collarbone is over an inch and down an inch into that soft fleshy area right here. All these other people’s nonsense.
Jimanekia: All these other people’s nonsense.
Cathy: And under the arm its four inches under the arm of the bra strap goes across all these other people’s nonsense.
Jimanekia: All these other people’s nonsense.
Cathy: Top of that maybe I don’t have to carry it anymore.
Jimanekia: Maybe I don’t have to carry it anymore.
Cathy: Nice deep breath. What you are noticing in your back right now?
Jimanekia: It’s not as tight but throbbing is gone. There’s a slight still paining but it’s movable.
Cathy: That’s good.
