Apologies for the lack of blogging! I haven’t been doing much baking lately as I have been spending time taking part in activities which make me feel renewed ……I have to confess that while I love baking the scoffing part of it doesn’t usually fill me with feelings of renewal 🙂 Hence it has taken a back seat for a while.

Instead I have been focusing on learning some languages, getting into nature each day, playing my guitar and getting on top of some emotional baggage. It is amazing how much ‘rubbish’ I was holding onto, even when I thought I had dealt with issue! After tapping each day and doing my other renewing activities, I have been blown away by the changes I have been experiencing and how much more my days are flowing.
So in case any of you want to feel a bit renewed I thought I would share this link to the Tapping World Summit. It has been on for the last 10 days however this is a link to be able to listen and tap along to all the talks. It is time sensitive so it will be ending very soon however I thought it was worth sharing; Tapping World Summit
I hope it gets to you in time … if not then check out YouTube for some free tap along videos on a host of topics.
Lately I’ve been doing a bit more EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) reading and whenever I do it always brings up new questions about how I relate to the world around me.
The book I have been reading is Jessica Ortner’s ‘The Tappping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence’. It is a great book which talks about NOT how we can shift weight by dieting but about what our connect to food is and what beliefs we hold around food. It encourages us to deal with and let go of all the negative emotions, thoughts, beliefs and connections we hold about our bodies, eating and food. In doing so we begin to value ourselves and nourish our bodies accordingly.

It has made me take time to discover my own triggers to eating, my own limiting beliefs about what is acceptable, my own beliefs about my body and my own emotions which I ‘stuff’ down with food because they are too painful to feel. Even the way I eat certain foods – standing for morning tea because I feel that I should be busy elsewhere rather than having a snack with the kids – or the times I feel like I need food have been created out of my emotions and beliefs.
While tapping along with the scripts she has provided I found myself remembering things which I thought were long since dealt with. Yet as I tapped and remembered the pain came and I made connections between my actions now and those events of years ago. It is amazing what we store and how those stored emotions and events then dictate how we act in the present.
Tapping (EFT) never ceases to amaze me and never ceases to shift my thinking to a more positive and calm state of mind.
Hope this finds you loving life, food and the body you’re in to the fullest.
