The school kids who kept us entertained:)
Mum at the sea
I’m just back from a week at the seaside with my mum and what an experience it was!
We had a good journey down and the next day we were on the beach followed by accident and emergency in Poole until 4 am! Mum was really ill and with such a high temperature that she was very confused. A drip and antibiotics and the holiday restarted 🙂
What came from that for me was seeing how quickly I can return to the little girl STILL!! after all this tapping, when mum gets mad! She was mad with me for dialling 111 and having to talk to the operator who said she needed A&E, so mad that she said she wasn’t going and my little girl said OK!
It took a friend looking up her symptoms on google and telling me to get her to hospital to bring me out of that scared powerless place and into the adult who did what needed doing and of course when I was in that adult, resourced space, mum responded differently. It never ceases to amaze me that it only needs one person in a relationship to do things differently, for things to be different. It gave me the ability to stay detached from the old stuff for the rest of the holiday and to find humorous ways to challenge old patterns.
We had a great week and got to know each other better. I could see much more clearly that what my little girl part thinks is an attack, is just mum feeling fearful and needing information to feel safe. it meant I could stay in my adult space and give her what she needed. Now we have new challenges as the doctor tries to find out what’s going on and we’ll survive it I’m sure, thank goodness for tapping and good friends:)
I wonder what old patterns are still popping up for you? Here’s a tapalong to start the process of change:)
And if you have relationship patterns you’d like to let go of, why not treat yourself to a session with me and get started? 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
