Small Intestine Meridian

Whenever we are faced with an overwhelming experience that we sense as potentially disintegrating, we have the ability to suspend it and "freeze" it in an unassimilated, inchoate form and maintain it in that state indefinitely, or for as long as necessary ~ Ivor Browne



The small intestine meridian is commonly known as the karate chop point or the side of hand point in EFT. Tapping this point continuously corrects psychological reversal, which is any block that we may have, conscious or unconscious, to healing. 

The small intestine is where we absorb and assimilate the nutrients from our food. If we carry across the metaphor of assimilation to our experiences and feelings, I don't think it's any surprise that this point helps us to 'digest the indigestible' or unfreeze an experience. Anything that remains unexperienced or undigested, whether it's food, an experience or a feeling, causes indigestion. 

A hurtful remark can give us the physical sensation of not being able to 'take it in', stomach it or absorb it, just as much as the food we eat. What we don't assimilate or digest can never be eliminated or let go of. The frozen energy needs to be freed up first, so it can move and be released. I have found tapping on this point alone can give huge relief. EFT shortcut diagram and procedure.

Wow, Noreen!

I LOVE HOW YOUR POSTS ARE SO HELPFUL... SEEMINGLY UNIVERSALLY APPROPRIATE! TO MY LIFE, AT THE VERY LEAST!

The evening I found/read this-the very day it was posted, funnily enough, my daughter had just been making jokes at bedtime-- about the magazine "Readers Digest" and the column called Laughter is the best medicine! Many digestion jokes, parallels, and puns! (She's 9!)

I had been treated just days before at some small intestine sites (among others)by my acupuncturist.

My spouse was at that time,under GREAT (could say the type that feels almost paralyzing) stress trying to help some people that he may not have had the power to help, and began experiencing nerve pain and numbness in the VERY SPOT indicated on the index finger.

Not only are your posts helpful,practical, they fuel the reader with insights and information with which to prepare themself for whatever may be revealed/needed in this life's journey.

Thank you!

:)

p.s. word verification = "beings". I love it!
