“Mona” (not her real name) came to my practice for various reasons, mainly migraine headaches.
She told me that she thought about drawing an early pension at age 58 because she felt so bullied at work. She had been working for the institution for 25 years and felt that now, people took her work for granted.
She told me that one younger woman told everybody who wanted to hear that Mona worked haphazardly, that she made many mistakes and was not able to fulfill all the requirements of her job. She felt a lot of hatred for that woman–real, deeply-felt hatred.
Of course, because this bothered her so much, she actually began making mistakes while working, and this only added fuel to the fire.
We did a brief EFT tapping session of about half an hour and tapped:
Even though I feel this hatred and would love to slap [person’s name] in the face, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though this bit** runs me down after all that I have done for the firm, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though my boss keeps both eyes shut at what she does to me, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though nobody even believes me that I am being bullied, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though I hate this woman for being so unjust to me, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though I hate going to work now, and I always loved my work, just because of this $#@!!*^!, I deeply and completely accept myself.
I forgive myself for taking all this in, and I also forgive myself for victimizing myself instead of standing tall for myself, as I deeply and completely accept myself.
In our EFT tapping session we had to use cuss words in the tapping statements (edited out above) in order to bring up the true emotion; being politically correct didn’t lead to any relief here. After a while, Mona said that all that the woman had said was untrue.
She did good work and always had, and she supposed that this envious, disturbed woman had a lot of problems to deal herself. She started laughing and felt much better.
Two months later, I met her again for a treatment.
Guess what she told me?
She loves going to work so much now that she phoned her boss and told him that she didn’t want to leave at all and that she didn’t want to reduce her hours. Her boss was very pleased and said that he would not want to lose a woman with so much business experience and that she could even work past age 65 where normally, someone of her age goes into retirement.
He valued her all the time, she just didn’t see it!
She looks years younger, has a lot of energy and is far less negative. The hatred and resentfulness at work is completely gone. EFT tapping for stress and anxiety is one of the best treatments around!
