Clearing Early Abuse Issues Causing Autoimmune Disorders

Anne Merkel - EFT Tapping Articles Written by Anne Merkel

When approaching an autoimmune case in a natural, holistic way, where an individual’s body is starting to work against itself, often there is a deep feeling of deserving to be hurt or abused – an unworthiness to be healthy.

An obvious cause that can show up in a client history is that of abuse or perceived abuse. In a very sensitive individual well-meaning discipline, scolding, criticism of any kind, among other normal family and parenting processes may be felt as personal abuse. And, abuse can come in many forms to each unique individual, so what appears normal to one person may be perceived as abusive by another.

In your early life if you ascertained or felt like some behavior toward you was abusive, then it was. And, if you saw others around you abused and you related deeply with their pain, you might have taken on their energy with the added emotion of guilt – why were they hurt and you were not? You may feel that none of you deserved better.

You may also have experienced real traumatic abuse of some kind. It could have been physical, emotional, sexual abuse that did happen, and maybe has since appeared in your life as a repeated energetic cycle. The earliest event as well as those subsequent episodes on some level might have made you feel that you deserved abuse, that you were unworthy of respect, and thus, you lost any sense of self-respect and esteem that you might have had previously.

In all of these cases your boundaries were not respected. Your territory was encroached upon. You were consciously and subconsciously made to feel bad about yourself.

This can take its toll on one’s third chakra personal power center as well as the meridians associated with that central trunk area of your body. You probably felt fear related to the abusive episodes, and if you were strong enough, you might have felt anger and resentment concerning the abuse. Looking at this profile, there seems to be a lot to work with from an energy therapy perspective.

To start taking the edge off of your inner anguish, get centered and begin to recall memories of past abuse.

As you’re thinking of a memory, start tapping at the heart center area. This is unique to my work and is a powerful tapping or holding area to connect with deep subconscious issues. Put your index finger at your Thymus Point, which is in the center of your upper chest, right in the middle of the ribcage. Then your middle finger goes where a woman’s cleavage would be and the other two fingers directly below that in a vertical line between the breasts. You’ve got your four fingers on one hand stretched out in a vertical line accessing your High Heart Chakra, Heart Chakra, and Central Meridian. Gently tap there.

Tap and feel the sensation and emotion of your trauma, abuse, disappointment, or any kind of related shame. Feel some of the residue from any of these as you tap and breathe out the charge, the heaviness, the old negativities around the memory. This was in the past. You have survived. Your future is bright and can be even better now that you are letting go of the pain of the past.

Again, you are looking at why you might be feeling bad about yourself, why the subconscious may be hanging onto this abuse-based criticism, self-hate, shame, low self-esteem, and sense of worthlessness. You’re clearing it now as you tap and feel.

Next go to Karate Chop Point. I want you to focus on any of the scenarios that I’ve drawn out for you, any early abuse that you might have experienced. Feel your emotion around this as you think about past memories and tap. You can use your own words while tapping this potent “set-up” point, using the following statements as models to bring out your feelings about the issues you wish to clear:

Even though I know I have this issue in my subconscious . . .

. . . I deeply and completely accept myself.

I know I’ve done the best I could do in every moment.

Even though this issue may be causing this autoimmune in me . . .

. . . may be causing the symptoms that are hurting me . . .

. . . may be causing my body to attack itself . . .

. . . I deeply and completely accept myself.

I know that my body is truly trying to protect me and keep me healthy.

Maybe there is some reason that the body has turned against me.

I choose to let go of that now.

There is a part of my Being that already knows why this autoimmune condition has shown up.

This part of my Being is willing to share the information with the rest of me now.

My mind and body and spirit are receiving this information and integrating it.

I am feeling grateful that this information will help me rebalance.

I am grateful that there is part of me that knows how to heal.

I am open to integrating this information in all parts of myself now.

I’m receiving and integrating this information with grace and ease.

This will help me to take better care of myself in the future.

This will help me to attract the right information and assistance so that I can get well.

This information transfer is now complete.

I will continue to receive pertinent information so that I may know how to heal.

I choose to love myself.

I choose to love myself even though others abused me.

It is good for me to love myself.

It is healthy for me to love myself.

I choose to let go of the past hurts.

I choose to get well.

It is good for me to get well.

I deserve to get well.

My body wants to get well.

God wants me to get well.

Now continue to tap on the other Classical EFT points, one-by-one, while feeling the charge of past memories of abuse. You need not say anything while tapping. Stay on each point as you feel the charge of your thoughts and memories… until you feel a shift or the charge goes down to neutral.

At the end of the session make sure to drink lots of water and take good care of yourself for the twenty-four hour period while your meridians continue to recalibrate. An Epsom Salts bath will support your continued clearing.
