When we choose to leave

Healing yourself, loving the world

Hello friends,

Below is a powerful tapping script that comes from my work with the family matrix and EFT.

I invite you to expand your concept of family and home for just a bit and see how our hearts still carry our history of many generations ….

When we choose to leave

The U.S. is known for being somewhat mobile – folks move around the countryfor work, for jobs, to go to school, to follow their dreams, or to find a better life.  The unspoken price of moving around is leaving our families.   In fact, if you look at the energy of the U.S. as a whole,we all left someplace to come here. Whether our parents, ourgrandparents, or generations before, we chose, or were forced to leave, our homeland.

This hidden loss of our homeland can show up in our lives today as an entanglement – basically that means that part of ourenergy is still tied to our ancestor’s homeland and until we can see and name and feel and accept that loss and connection, we won’t fullyfind our places here.

So, think of your family heritage.  Which homeland was left behind?  Imagine facing that history and feeling the emotion in your body.  Tap as you go and see how this shifts from hidden loss to forgotten love.

Set-Up Phrase

Even though I left, and I had no choice, I am willing to see what I left.

Even though I was glad to leave, I wanted to go, I am willing to see the price I paid.

Even though my family left, part of us still belongs to our heritage and homeland.
