Every single disease comes with a set of symptoms. Whether they are symptoms of the body, the mind or the spirit. Each one of them is a clue. Identify the symptoms for your disease, and even side effects form whatever medical treatment you might be following.

 

On a daily basis, you might choose to write a list of these symptoms, or maybe keep a diary of the symptoms you experienced during the day. That will help you to identify them faster and react more swiftly when they appear, so you can start tapping them away immediately, reducing pain and any fear or anxiety attached to symptoms and side effects.

Whether you choose to write them down or not, the number one EFT golden rule applies : TAP! Preferably as soon as you identify the first signs. Even if you don't say anything, just focus on the symptom.

Another tip, while you are tapping, is to visualise your symptom... and its solution!. E.g. if your chemo creates stomach burns for you, imagine a fire in your stomach, and (still tapping), imagine you pour water over it. If your muscles feel like there's a knot, imagine you can SEE the knot and see yourself untie it, as if it was a piece of string. It might seem a bit too simple, but just try it. What do you have to loose?

You can also focus on emotional reactions. For example, if you are unable to move, tap on the frustration or anger that you need help to do anything.

When symptoms are quiet enough, you can also consider your disease from a little afar, and focus on the future are you see it. Ask yourself a few key questions. Do you think you are going to heal? Henry ford said that “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.” And this applies to your healing.

If you think you can heal, tap on the path to healing;

Even though I know I will heal, the road ahead is so long, I don't know how I am going to do this, I choose to keep my focus on my healing.

If you think you cannot heal, tap to open new possibilities, such as :

Even though you can't heal form this disease, and I am a lost case, I'd like to be open to the possibility that I don't know everything. Maybe I'm wrong? Maybe even doctors don't know it all? What is I could unexpectedly heal?

You can also work on what the disease means to you, what it prevents you from doing, (and maybe what you can avoid now without having to make excuses?), the impact on your loved ones, all the feelings it triggers for you. And get some help. You might know how to change a bulb, but when there'a short circuit somewhere in the house, you'll call in the electrician. Same here. Anybody can tap “small things” away, but when it becomes too big, professional help is invaluable.
