I recently had an interesting experience, which I would like to share with everyone.

Approximately one week ago I met with a cousin of mine whom I had not seen in a few years. She arrived bearing a gift, which unbeknownst to me was about to cause me some emotional upheaval. It was an autobiography published by my father. My father and I have been estranged for many years and I was totally unaware that he had published a book. I was surprised and speechless to say the least.

Curious however about the content I started reading the book. Two days later I developed the most terrible toothache in the back tooth on the upper right hand side of my jaw. Within a short period of time it rated at 10 on the 0-10 intensity scale. Drawing on the knowledge I have accumulated over the years of practicing various healing modalities, I immediately knew that this toothache was directly related to unresolved issues with regard to my father.

Although I always believed there where no unresolved issues, I was sooo….. wrong.

I started tapping, using phrases such as: 

Even though…

My father left when I was very young, I love and accept myself

My father was the cause of many tears I cried, I love and forgive him anyway

I believed my father did not love me; I love him and forgive him anyway

I was envious of the new family my father had, I love and forgive myself

Then I used a few “Choices” phrases such as,

I choose…

To love and accept my father despite what happened

To forgive myself for feeling envious

To forgive myself for feeling angry towards him

To accept him for who he is

I tapped on the above statements for one hour, during which time instead of the pain easing up, the toothache got progressively worse and worse. I remember thinking that this is not how it should be; the pain should be easing up instead it was getting worse.

Eventually feeling quite despondent with this pain I stopped tapping, had glass of water and went to sleep. I managed to fall asleep fairly quickly, however I woke up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. (When our bodies develop a fever, we are releasing anger on an emotional level). I got up to have some water and noticed that the toothache had subsided altogether.

A few days have passed since and the toothache has not made a re-appearance.

It is interesting to note how we all release our issues in different ways. I usually find with clients that the effects are immediate, especially with pain relief, in my instance however the pain became worse and the anger was released through a fever during the night.
