You guys may already know about these two bits, but thought
I'd share them just in case since they both created breakthroughs
Eckhard Tolle talks about what he calls the pain body
in his book A New Earth -I think it's in chapter 4 or 5 (but I would
suggest starting with chapter three; he's got some insights that are
eye-opening; I had a couple of those Oprah aha moments.
If you can't seem to shake the negative emotions or physical symptoms or phobias
from those negative memories, Michael Neill's talked about EFT or TFT on his radio series,
and it may be worth a try. Even though the DIY talking and tapping doesn't seem like it
could really do anything significant, it's weird, it works.
There are variations of the tapping sequence, but the basic version I first learned by watching a video on tapping.com because I had only heard Michael walk someone through it and I wanted to see it to make sure I was understanding what I was supposed to do. It has amazed me on several occasions with instant results; I was able to dissipate emotional or physical pain within a few rounds of tapping.
He mentioned David Feinstein as a good source, and I'm just reading The Promise of Energy Psychology now to become more informed, but my understanding is that this work has something to do with negative energy getting stored in the body and uses principles of acupressure by DIY tapping on a series of points on your body to unblock and release emotional and physical pain.
