Lonely parts

I spotted this forlorn graffiti in my local park and it made me think about those lonely parts of us who feel isolated and unlovable. Often if a part like that is trying to make contact with us it can feel really yucky and the last thing we want to do is get closer! Indeed the parts themselves may make unsociable noises and give off ‘keep away’ messages.

The truth is however that all parts of us need contact from us in order to heal and come home. EFT techniques can give us many gentle pathways through which to make contact with these isolated parts and gradually we can befriend them until we, and they, are able to enter a new level of trust.

I have a technique that I have used often to help me tap with a part like this and that is to draw its face (and this can be a very simplified drawing such as in the graffiti here) and then talk to, and tap with, the drawing. When I run out of time to tap I fold the drawing up and put it in my pocket. ‘Come with me through my day’, I say, ‘You don’t have to be on your own.’

You might have another technique that you use to talk to parts like these. What’s important is to keep listening to the message under the message which is always, ‘Join us’.
