Messages from an Oven

Try EFT on everything, right?

I have an oven that sometimes turns on rather sluggishly or, occasionally, not at all. Yes, I could get this oven fixed and be done with it. But since the oven often works beautifully, I've taken it as a personal challenge to heal the problem energetically before I cave in and call a repairman.

So, I tapped:
"Even though, my oven is not turning on and I am frustrated now, I deeply and completely accept myself."

Then, after a round of that, the wordings organically changed and, intuitively, I started tapping from the oven's perspective and let the words just flow through:

"Even though I don't want to turn on,..."
"Even though I am afraid to combust,..."
"Even though I feel stifled here, and really would like to light up, I feel afraid..."
"Even though there's so much pressure mounting here, I am just about to explode but, nope, I am not going to combust because it'd hurt Christine..."
"Even though, I won't light up because I have promised Christine that I won't..."

Whoa!!! Where were these thoughts from? I think I have just gotten in touch with a shadow part of me that has felt stifled and concerned about expressing itself "explosively." And my oven was a personification of that energy. Who would have thought? I certainly didn't.

I tapped some more using the choices method (thanks to Dr. Pat Carrington) and I let myself know it's OK to combust, especially if my combustion help me cook a delicious meal for my family. (Grin.)

Guess what? The oven turned on less than 1 minute afterwards!

Am I done with this oven episode? I don't know. But I certainly gained valuable insights into myself and am grateful for the messages from my oven.
