Easter Tapping Ideas

Easter was a big part of my upbringing, having a grandmother from Jerusalem, and living in the Lebanon. There is a great singer from the Lebanon called Fairuz, who sang a hymn about the crucifixion that I found incredible sadness in. Finally when I learned tapping, every Easter, I would tap on one aspect of what happened to Jesus. Because what happened to him at this time, well, history repeats itself, and we see it everywhere if we just open our eyes.
One Easter, I just played the hymn by Fairuz over and over again for two days, tapping on all the points till the tears finally stopped. I released so much.
I also have great sadness that I tap on regularly on how this event has been mixed with commerce in such a destructive way. The original Easter celebration was a Pagan one in the Northern Hemisphere. It respected the Earth and the seasons, and it was in celebration of Spring. The egg represented the chick which was about to be born, the Earth which was about to come into flower, the food which was about to be produced as a result. A whole renewal after the harsh winter months. Then the "Christian" wars happened, and the "Church" at the time had to find a way to turn this Pagan ritual into a "Christian" one. So they made out that Jesus was killed on the cross about this time (which according to my grandmother's ancestors was at a different time), and that he was then resurrected. So, as a child, we would boil eggs and color them with safe food coloring. When they dried, we would rub olive oil onto them with a cloth, making them shiny. And then everybody mourns on Good Friday, and on Sunday, one person would hold an egg, and the other person would hold another. Person 1 would say "Christ has risen", and tap their egg on the other person's egg, who would then say "Indeed he has risen". Now, Easter is an occasion where children do not get told what happened to Jesus but are bought poisonous amounts of sugar and other nasty ingredients in a "chocolate" "Easter Egg", and given to them as a way to show love. The child is being told/implied to:
  • Nothing about the origins of Easter.
  • That poisonous fake food must be tasty, because it comes wrapped in colorful wrappings and is given with love. Fake food = Love. For me this is a big issue, as I work a great deal with disordered eating and weight. I have to de-program the "Fake Food = Love" limiting belief out of my clients, and it is sad.

  • I tap almost every year with sadness of the lost information and the wrong message that is given to innocent little children, how food manufacturers and shops take advantage of almost the whole population to give them poison, and how we forget that the person sent to save us was killed, and that it happens every day somewhere in the world in a smaller way.
    Religious holidays are a great occasion to tap away negative emotion. Then we can celebrate them in their true spirit. I would recommend EFT at these times to help us release past hurts, past hurts of our ancestry, and present hurts that we experience. Then, as the newborn chick, the resurrected Christ, we have a new beginning and move forward to a new growth.
