Enjoy Each Moment As It Comes

With gratitude to a great teacher who had depression

"Look for the mysterious in life. Wherever you look – in the white clouds, in the stars in the night, in the flowers, in a flowing river – wherever you look, look for the mystery. And whenever you find that a mystery is there, meditate on it. Meditation means: dissolve yourself before that mystery, annihilate yourself before that mystery, disperse yourself before that mystery. Be no more, and let the mystery be so total that you are absorbed in it. And suddenly a new door opens, a new perception is achieved." - Osho

Yes, words of wisdom indeed. Early in my career as a practitioner, pre-EFT days, I was visited by a man with depression. "Please don't turn me away like the other four hypnotherapists I have been to" he said, "I know what I want from you, all I ask is that you do it, please don't turn me away". Intrigued and somewhat wary, I asked what he wanted me to do. He answered "I just want you to show me how to enjoy each moment as it comes. I promise I won't be trouble, please don't turn me away. Just show me how to enjoy each moment as it comes."

So I agreed. In trance, I said the first things that came to my head, very similar to what Osho said. And soon enough, this man was much happier. I am truly grateful to him and to God or The Universe for bringing him to teach me.

Now when I tap with a client with depression, we also do some positive tapping around this. For example:

"Even though I have this depression, I look forward to feeling better, one day at a time, one moment at a time. The past is behind me, the future is in front of me, and all that matters is now, this moment. I choose to take each moment as it comes, and that's OK. I deeply love and accept myself, even when I can't. I accept myself anyway."

Reminder - one phrase tapped on each point, going round and round the points:
"The past is behind me
"The future is in front of me
"And all that matters is now
"This moment
"I choose to enjoy each moment as it comes
"This moment is calm
"And this moment is exciting
"This moment brings a challenge
"This moment is soon forgotten
"This moment is peaceful
"This moment is calm
"This moment I am walking on the street and see a nice-colored car and it makes me smile
"And this moment I look up at the sky and see the sun trying to peer through the grey clouds
"And this moment the sun does peer through and light up all around me
"This moment I hear a nice piece of music and it makes me smile
"This moment I hear someone else's interesting ringtone and it makes me feel good
"This moment is interesting
"This moment is peaceful
"I choose to find wonder in everything I see or hear
"This moment is calm
"I enjoy each moment as it comes"

I hope this helps you or yours find inner peace and contentment.
