And the final piece: Family Energetics.
Last week we talked about tapping for the collective. One of the invitations with the collective is to move TOWARDS the feelings, recognizing that you are part of the whole and allowing yourself to actually experience the emotions.
Moving away from the feelings with the fourth level of tapping, the ancestral system
Working with the ancestral system, it’s almost the opposite approach: recognize the feelings but move AWAY from them being yours. Recognize the issue as belonging to someone else in the family system. The mere identification of the issue as someone else’s brings relief and clarity. This is because it’s the hidden, secret, or unprocessed emotions of members past that show up today in our lives as entanglements or blockages.
So if you are dealing with an issue and you have more intensity than you expect, ask yourself:
- Within my ancestral and family system, who am I feeling this for?
- Who in my family system couldn’t feel this?
- Who needs to be seen?
- What needs to be seen?
You might be surprised at how quickly the answers show up.
