27 Oct Day 2 EFT- I’m just saying
So, I have done the EFT thing a few times now and while i don’t know that it’s having any major effect I have to say I think I’m a bit more relaxed. In fact, my wife was a bit frustrated last night after dinner as she thought that I was kind of tuning out- but in retrospect realized that I was just more relaxed.
This morning on the way to the pool I was in traffic on the BQE and I had a guy hit me from behind when I was nearly stopped. A couple of weeks ago we were hit by a guy who ran a stop sign. I was furious, and I jumped out of the car and started yelling at the guy. Even as I did it, I knew it wasn’t the best way to handle the situation but wasn’t able to calm myself. It didn’t help my kids, and it didn’t help me. It was a week after this that my hip went out so badly and I know it was related.
Today, I felt my body tense in that way it does when you’re hit from behind. I took a deep breath, got out of the car and took a look. There was clearly some damage. A screw was sticking out of the bumper. The bumper wasn’t in the best shape to begin with so I wasn’t that concerned cosmetically but thought something might have been thrown out of whack. The other driver approached and He didn’t speak English. I pointed to the screw. He went over and pulled it out. I looked like it might have come from his license plate.
I did a quick calculation in my head. It was raining and we were on the crowded highway. It just wasn’t worth anymore discussion. I took his hand, looked him in the eye, and shook it gently. “OK”. I turned and got in my car and drove off. I still felt that whiplash tightness but it quickly dissipated as I drove away. I have to say I got a bit angry when we took the same exit and I saw him pull up next to me on the phone- but I let it go.
In the pool my hip hurt about the same as usual, but I was a little looser. I thought about how the idea of EFT helped me deal with the same Sarno issues by giving me a way to take a positive approach to the issues- rather than beat up that part of me that’s causing the pain it allowed me to be a bit more forgiving.
In any case, I’m feeling better so I’m gonna keep at it.
