Making Sadness a Blessing


In a state of sadness, you are in a state of grief and hurt that wants to heal.

We feel sad when we personally identify with the problem and its solution and feel lacking in addressing it. This means we feel a sense of responsibility and blame ourselves for not having the means to make a difference. This helplessness and hopelessness feels awful and so often we do our best to minimize it by not fully acknowledging it.

Metaphorically, we are just hiding it away in the closet. Of course, this means that it still exists even if we turn our attention elsewhere. However, if we clean out the closet we can sort through the aspects that hold the sadness.

EFT Tapping: Frequently Asked Questions


EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique and it is used to shift you from a negative feeling state into a positive one. Tapping refers to the use of touching points on your meridians in the form of gentle tapping with your fingers.

How does EFT work?

EFT tapping activates your meridians and in doing so shifts you from a sympathetic fight or flight nervous system response to a parasympathetic rest and digest state of being.

What should I say?

Whilst tapping you use your stream of consciousness. In other words, just say what comes to mind about what is challenging you. You can include what you feel and think and where you experience it physiologically or even how the problem shows up metaphorically. You can use anything that has meaning for you and that you associate with your current challenge. If emotions well up, you can continue to tap without speaking until they subside.

What’s your Guiding Word or Theme?


Choose an inspirational word or theme as a pointer. Take the time to select a topic that affirms where you are going or who you want to be. Using this word or theme to direct your focus for some time can be helpful. It can highlight a state of being (such as calm) or a state of doing (such as productive).

Many people select a word or statement at the beginning of the year that describes how they seek to be that year.

An additional more expansive option is to select a theme. Common options might be Family, Identity, or Health.

The word or theme that you select supports you in moving forward. It provides a reminder of where you want to direct your attention. This could support goals you have set yourself, management of life transitions, how you wish to expand or elaborate on your expression, or the type of life you want to live.
