A Tornado of feelings

Karin Goldgruber

Yesterday night at 3:05 I woke up and found out that there was a tornado in the city my youngest son had just recently moved to. My heart started racing, and I felt like someone hit me in the stomach and fear just took over.It was too early to call him and check if he was okay. In the past I would have been up all night, overwhelmed with fear and  worries.

I took deep breaths and began to use EFT. I tapped with my fingertips on the meridian points on my face,hands and torso and quietly stated how I was feeling and what I was afraid of. My heart started to slow down, my breathing became deeper with each round. I tapped until I got to a point where I could think rationally, where I was not consumed by fear and worry  any more. I sent a short message asking him if he was okay. After that I fell asleep quite quickly. In the morning there was a message telling me that he was okay. ( by Karin Goldgruber)
