I judge other people. Even as an Empath who can feel the underlining vibrations that often cause people to behave the way they do, I have a difficult time not passing judgment on others. I judge the teachers I work with. I judge parents in the supermarket. I judge politicians in the news.
Gossip and judgment: we all participate in these two negative energy creators. Brene Brown says that we gossip to force connection, and I believe that is so true, but even if I stop talking about people behind their backs, I can’t seem to stop the judging them.
Fortunately, Gabrielle Bernstein released her book Judgement Detox last year, and I started reading it as a part of a Women’s group I joined online.
If you are looking for a solid direction for how to stop a “judgment spiral”, this book has been really helpful. Bernstein gives you practical, hands-on advice for how to identify your judgement and then direction on how to move past them.
Her chapter on EMT or “tapping” has been such a game changer for me, and I am super excited as I move forward with this new found healing process. Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain.
EFT focuses on the bodies meridian points where the energy flows through and when these points or are imbalanced, then the energy becomes lessened or blocked. This leads to emotional or physical illness. It can also cause you to unfairly judge others to feel better about the imbalances in your own body.
Since starting this book, I can feel a change and a healing happening. There is a strange sense of warmth that is spreading throughout my body. It feels like I turned a faucet on and there is an energy that is moving through me that was not there before. If anyone else has used this technique and can weigh in on this, let me know!
Love and Light, Everyone!
