I started Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) a couple of months ago.  The results have been startling and illuminating.  Through the tapping therapy and gentle guidance from Kate I started to unravel what was holding me back.  I am now 63 and some of this went back over 55 years ago.  Quite a revelation … there were tears, laughter, silence, patience, pain and realisation … .  I am now a different person, kinder to myself and others, I’m not an angel but also, I don’t now have devils driving me.  I have the happy acceptance of what you see is what you get and I revel in it.  If there was one benefit I could take from this is that it wasn’t all my fault.

Update 1 year later
I am still continuing to de clutter my home.  The pace has slowed but with the slower pace came a lot more clarity as to why I kept the bits and pieces that turned in clutter.  I realised I had unresolved grieving issues to do with my dad and also fear of the unknown with regards to my disabled son’s future..
 
I realise that I don’t mind what I do now and will take on new challenges while letting go of the dross and that kept me from moving forward.  I put some Xmas decorations up this year for the first time in years, not loads and loads but just enough to give me pleasure and this was done for me, I felt freer than I had done in years, there was no pressure because of the tapping I found I could breathe and not believe the adverts on the telly that said if you had this the world would be so much better. 
 
I now say prayers because they comfort me and am not ashamed of saying I have now found a lovely church to worship in and don’t feel I’m being judged for the way I live my life. 
 
I’m no saint, but  I am learning that the parts of me that were battened down for years through shame were not my fault, and acknowledging this has freed me. 
 
The tapping has helped greatly.  I mentally as well as physically tap.  Its easy for me now and if there is something that comes along that I am fearful of, I ask myself ‘why’ tap and think it through and try not to run away from the fear.
 
Like  peeling an onion, there are probably places I haven’t even discovered in my mind, but I’m not frightened only hopeful of resolution.
 
I found my child voice and I’m not losing it again,.
