This evening, I was tapping with ds. I am working through some issues that I think might be contributing to his diagnosis of autism and the challenges related to this that he has. Yesterday, I tapped on vaccination and DTP since I have evidence to this effect. Today, I started tapping on him and said, "Let's talk about you being born." He talks, but his language is very delayed. So, I started to talk about his birth. He came out with the cord around his neck. Then, I check my e-mail and see Gary's newsletter with this story: Here's a great example by Jo Hainsworth of New Zealand of how core issues can automatically show up during an EFT session. She was tapping for an intense fear of using a firefighter's breathing apparatus and says, "As I tapped, all of a sudden the thought popped into my head that I was born with the umbilical cord wrapped several times around my neck. I had the sensation of being a newborn baby trying desperately to breathe with something around my neck. I recalled how I can't stand having anything around my throat. So I did some tapping for the newborn baby..." Andrew had trouble with oral sensitivity for years which severely limited his food choices. We've resolved a lot of that with homeopathy and I have tapped on it before. Still, pretty cool to see this synchronicity. BUT, I hate having things around my neck. By this I mean, turtle necks, a zipped up jacket. Interesting.... Something for me to work on. But with ds, the tapping went down a path that I had Fifth Disease when pregnant with him which was also interesting. I tapped for him on being so little, still gettting made and having this virus.
