When I was a child I had the opportunity to spend time at the Outdoor Education Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio. This was a rewarding experience for a lot of reasons. I was spending time in nature, learning about the animals and plants native to my area, chasing the elusive indigo bunting, eating violets, and enjoying the freedom of not being in a traditional classroom. One of the animals that I became better acquainted with was the red-tailed hawk. What a beautiful creature. I still get a special feeling when I remember the experience. The hawk, as a totem, is known as a messenger of the spirit world and a symbol of spiritual awareness. The next tapping exercise will help you explore your own spiritual connections.
Setup (Karate Chop Point): Even though I am not as connected to the spiritual aspects of living as I would like to be, I choose to love and accept myself completely. Even though my connection to Spirit isn’t quite what I would like it to be, I choose to respect the connection. I choose to honor my willingness to grow in this area. Even though I need to focus much more on body and mind that I do spirit, I deeply and completely love, honor, and accept myself.
