TFT HEALS MEXICO
by Brenda Ignorosa
When I knew Tapping Therapy was coming to Mexico, I did all my homework. I read all about TFT and Roger and Joanne Callahan, but when Suzanne Connolly (our teacher) came into the room, I didn’t know what to expect.
I only knew I felt anxiety and fear about a trip that I am going to take. Every past day I woke up with stomach pain and with many other emotions, except peace.
When Suzanne started explaining, everyone was so quiet, trying to understand…In my humble opinion, it is that in Mexico we are not so open yet to all these “alternative” therapies and techniques….
However, the most important thing, is that in our country and maybe all around the world, we have a boom of yoga, therapies, gurus, meditation… But we don’t know who is giving us the complete truth. Sadly, there are a lot of charlatans around these things.
Getting back to my point, the course was without words… Literally… I started the course thinking like in school: I will have a theory and a practice. But TFT is all about experience. There is no a theory and no steps to follow, there is only to feel.
At the end of the first day, we were all laughing. About what? I don’t know, we just felt good. What happened? Again, I really don’t know, I just tapped certain parts of my body, thought about my problems and Bam! I know it sounds like magic, but don’t be scared if it is the first time you read about this.
It all makes sense: Certain parts of your body are connected to your emotions, and your emotions to your brain. So if you press pre-determined points, you unblock the energy…
By the end of the day, I was relieved of that anxiety, really! Not forgetting that, of course, like a good human that I am (haha), I tried to get back to that emotion, but I couldn’t, it was really beautiful. I am grateful!
The second day, we were already strong enough to help other people. We worked with them and we also worked on our own issues.
Nevertheless, the third day was the best!!! The doctors and nurses that were in the course, brought some of their patients to the course so Suzanne could help heal them. When that happened, everyone cried including Suzanne. It was a beautiful moment!
