Energy Psychology Support for Autoimmune Disorders

By Anne Merkel, Ph.D.

(Add or view comments at the bottom of the page.)

 

Each autoimmune case is different, however there are many similarities and shared issues underlying autoimmune disorders. Included here are two exercises that you may use as you begin to apply Energy Therapy meridian approaches to clear some of the emotions associated with your condition or that of someone you treat.

Often when one suffers from an autoimmune disorder they are treated as though they have imagined the symptoms or are over-reacting. A common symptom of autoimmune is often a foggy or disconnected mind, so it is sometimes difficult for the patient to explain feelings and/or symptoms to a physician. Many patients feel angry at not being believed or understood or able to represent themselves well, so clearing anger and other emotions is a practical first step.

Exercise 1:

First tap over your “heart center” area which includes placing the index finger over the thymus point in the middle of the upper chest, then spreading the other three fingers in a vertical line down the sternum between the breasts. While tapping, focus on the anger, frustration, confusion, impatience, or other emotions you may feel about how your practitioners are relating to your autoimmune condition. Focus on negative feelings around this and breathe them out while tapping until you feel less “charged”.

Next tap on the karate chop point - on the side of the hand between the base of the little finger and the beginning of the wrist. Use the following statements personalized with your own words for your specific situation, and focus on the feelings as you tap. Talk to yourself about choosing to let go of these feelings or symptoms now.

“Even though I feel angry that the doctor doesn’t understand me, I deeply & completely accept that I’m doing the best I can do now.”

“Even though I feel angry and misunderstood by the doctor and others, I deeply & completely accept that I’m doing the best I can do now.”

“Even though I feel angry at this condition and what it’s done to me, I deeply & completely accept myself for doing my best now.”

“Even though I am angry that my fuzziness of mind keeps others from really understanding, I deeply & completely accept myself.”

“I choose to let go of this anger & frustration!”

“I choose to feel at peace even if these others don’t understand what I’m going through.”

“I choose to allow the Power that made the body, to heal the body!”

[If you know the regular EFT/ Emotional Freedom Techniques protocol, you may follow it now while focusing on the feelings of each of the above statements.]**

-----------------------------------

While working with autoimmune issues I find that often people simply feel like victims of their condition and their body. They have probably been told by doctors that they just need to get used to this different lifestyle of fatigue or pain. Many are already on disability, unable to work or fully function in their lives when they seek the help of an Energy Psychologist or Energy Therapy Practitioner. Many of these people have lost hope and have started to surrender to the dis-ease in their body.

At this point I like to remind the subconscious mind and limbic brain that it can let go of this condition. I also start to focus on why the condition might have been originally created in the body, focusing on the initial frequency of stuck energy that attracted the autoimmune weakening process, the toxic event, or the subconscious introduction of dis-ease. When the core issue is discovered and cleared, then the symptoms can start to leave the patient.

 

Exercise 2:

Let us now clear out the acceptance of victimhood: 

Start by tapping at your "heart center" area  as before. Tap there and feel your reaction to the situation. Do you feel like a victim? Always? Sometimes? When do you usually feel that way? Focus on that as you feel the sense of victimhood, scan your specific situation and experiences, and breathe out the heavy feelings.

Next move to the karate chop point with the following set-up statements that you can again personalize. Focus on your inner feelings of hopelessness, victimhood, anxiety, frustration about the situation, over-all fatigue of life itself, etc.

“Even though I’ve been told that I have to live with this, I deeply & completely accept that I am doing the best I can do now.”

“Even though I feel like a victim to my body, I deeply & completely accept myself for giving it another try to get well. “

“Even though I feel like a victim to this condition, I deeply & completely accept myself for giving it another try to get well.”

“Even though I feel hopeless about my future, I choose to keep moving toward health, and for this I deeply & completely accept myself.”

“Even though I’ve lost hope as I see my body getting worse with this condition, I choose to keep moving toward health, and for this I deeply & completely accept myself.”

“Even though I am so tired of searching for miracles, I choose to keep moving toward health, and for this I deeply & completely accept myself.”

“This condition may be subconsciously trying to protect me from something, and I choose to clear the original issue that is causing this condition.”

“I choose to be guided to the modality, the practitioner, and the best time to clear this condition out of my subconscious and energetic field so that my body can heal.”

“I choose to let go of the underlying causes for this condition so that my body can heal. This is for my Highest good!”

[If you know the regular EFT/ Emotional Freedom Techniques protocol, you may follow it now while focusing on the feelings of each of the above statements.]**

-----------------------------------

After the subconscious mind has been brought to attention and blocks to worthiness to be healthy are cleared, it is time to focus on any traumas, accidents, losses, major life shifts that occurred around the time that the condition started to manifest symptoms. The roots or genetic predisposition to getting ill could have been carried since conception in the DNA, however something in life triggered this dormant condition and since then illness has prevailed.

 

Exercise 3:

Again, start by focusing on your feelings as you tap on your “heart center” and read through the following set-up statements. Breathe out the negative feelings and continue here until you feel less “charged” on each of the statements.

Next, tap on the karate chop side of the hand while personalizing the statements and feeling the emotions from each event or memory. Breathe out the heaviness and negative feelings as you tap, and continue until you feel “neutral” for each statement.

“Even though ___________happened and I have been ill ever since, I choose to get beyond this event/injury/accident/loss/shock.”

“I love myself, and I choose to let go of the trauma of that event/injury/accident/loss/shock.”

“Even though I feel like I’m experiencing the ‘dark night of the soul’, I choose to return from this ‘dark night’ and heal my body.”

“Even though I have suffered greatly because of that event/injury/accident/loss/shock, I deeply & completely accept myself and the fact that I’ve always done the best I can do in each moment.”

“Even though I experienced so much emotion when that ________ happened, and I’ve been carrying it ever since, I deeply & completely accept and love myself. – In fact, I love myself so much that I allow myself to let go of these emotions I have felt about ___________.”

[If you know the regular EFT/ Emotional Freedom Techniques protocol, you may follow it now while focusing on the feelings of each of the above statements.]**

-----------------------------------

These are just a few steps that I routinely take when starting to work with clients suffering from autoimmune disorders. The use of Energy Psychology reports good success with a variety of autoimmune disorders. I hope this information serves you well!
