So, after feeling considerably unwell for a couple of weeks I can now report how things have progressed and I share my EFT Tapping Audio: Dizziness When Physically Unwell I decided to practice some Self-Healing once my head felt less foggy. I did some simple EFT and was delighted with the results. Perhaps with hindsight, Overwhelm may have played a part in this bout of ill-health. Overwhelm comes in many, many guises and your body responds accordingly to that stress.
Please read Part One: When You Feel Physically Unwell
Recognise any of these Overwhelm traits?
- You cram much into your day
- Life feels out of kilter
- Spinning out of control
- Blinkered to slowing and enjoying ‘The Now’
- Keeping busy to shut out…….
Let’s just use those examples without delving into the great WHY you have allowed this successful Self-Sabotaging behaviour to manifest.
I still have remaining symptoms ( 2 or 3 weeks on) however a week into this I decided to give EFT a go. Why wouldn’t I? I am a specialist in this area after all! And better late than never. I blame the debilitating dullness of my brain for the delay; the sensations I felt were an incredilbe band/weight of heaviness sitting in my head.
Best Advice (to Self)
Remember that EFT is effective in lowering feelings of stress
Key Point: With EFT I do not need to know your story, only how you feel
However I best explain that I may have Vertigo or BPPV. I still have it but it is more manageable. The first 2 days I threw up and felt particularly grim. Now I do the manoeuvers to try to move the crystals in the ear and I do not make sudden head movements. (I’m actually thinking of stopping the manoeuvers as they did not help this morning!) It can take some time to warm-up in the morning but I can go to the gym on a regular basis. Rushing up and out of my bed in the morning; I suspect may land me in a heap. #dramaqueen . However best not to make a melodrama out of this. (I think I wondered what on earth was going on when it started).
So there you have the story, but the story is not necessary. Speaking about the story is just that- speaking. The effect is still held within you at cellular body level; causing emotional imbalance and fodder for any Self-Sabotaging Inner Critic to go to town.
After one week of having this I was really cheesed off, especially with the band of fog and the heaviness sensation I had in my head for fairly long periods of the day.
I sat myself down and started Tapping and within 5 to 10 minutes the thick heaviness had gone. I thanked the Powers That Be and I can report that I was fairly stunned with the results. The band had evaporated and the fogginess gone.

EFT Tapping at its most basic can be classed I suppose as a quick fix. But the quick fix allows you to feel better and get on with the normalitiy of the day whether pleasureable or grim. We are talking real world not magic. The magic comes when you work with a practitioner to question and work with the WHY and the HOW you respond to emotional stress.

When you feel physically unwell: Physical and Emotional Overwhelm comes in many guises. (Part 1 early October).
Overwhelm, in my case being busy, busy and filling my day, shows itself in many guises and eventually will impact on physical health. So it’s my turn to have processed some emotional stuff and my body going into physical healing. I certainly don’t care for the physical ill health side of things. If packing as much into your day as you can is your thing, then just be prepared for your special cellular reaction to kick in – at some point.
Besides being a bit of a wimp and over worrying even though I do and should know better – here are some tips. You’ll know them but how clever are you at implementing them? I’ve been working today with a Meta Health practitioner, finally. Should have done it sooner! Her job is facilitate my healing. I will allow today’s session to process and do my little self-help routine; baby step changes are very powerful.
KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid. (Apologies. This Self-Berating is not clever either but I am feeling fairly naff so it must go with the territory). But it doesn’t help and this is one area to practice in my little tasks/ lifestyle homework!
It couldn’t be simpler folks.
- I will be more observant and step in when I recognise that one of my default negative behaviours is having a wonderful time. Overwhelm #crammingmuchintomyday is a culprit.
- I shall visualise my own chosen positive message; do this for a couple of weeks and hopefully be fairly well sorted with regards to what’s been going on. Time will tell. (This should be a blog. In a couple of weeks or so it will).
- Working with your chosen professional therapist/practitioner when needs prevail, or you can’t do it all yourself, is a great and loving act of Self-Kindness.
Follow-up Post in a couple of weeks.
