I have found that there are two ways we can improve the effectiveness of a medical implant, whether it be a lens implant in cataract surgery, the replacement of a limb, a pace maker, or any other form of surgical implant — by using Meridian Tapping.

One is by working with the implant directly, the other is by working with the energy created by the implant.

The Implant

Our bodies are designed so that they are very effective in fighting off substances that might be harmful to our system. We have processes and protocols that deal with environmental allergens, diseases, fungus, viruses, and other invaders. As effective as these systems are, they are relatively primitive and unfortunately they can make mistakes..

These systems simply detect something that is foreign and proceed to try to eliminate it as best they can. There are times when they over-respond (e.g. a major allergy attack), or when they attack something that is actually helpful for the body. A good example of the latter is the way the body often responds to an organ transplant. It’s obvious to us, as informed people, that something foreign has been used to replace a body part which is inured or diseased and that this is done for health reasons, but the body doesn’t know about the intended helpfulness and attacks the new organ as if it were an enemy. This is equally true for any sort of medical implant –– it can readily be seen as an invader and attacked.

A number of years ago I was working with a client who had surgery during which her rib cage was opened up. The ribs were then reattached to each other with wire to keep them in place as they healed back together. She was having a very hard time post operatively.

Her body was trying to expel the unfamiliar substance (the wire), which had been added in a traumatic way. This resulted in pain in her chest where the wire was.  The pain changed from day to day ranging from a dull ache to an extreme burning sensation.  My client reported always being unpleasantly aware of it in some way.  

This wire had been chosen specifically to last and stay in place, so her body was going to have to keep fighting and fighting and the wire wasn’t going to go anywhere.

As strange as it may sound, the way we worked on the problem was to reconcile the body to the wire. The tapping went something like this (each phrase was repeated on a different Tapping spot):

…"There is a wire that is in my body…

…I did not choose to have it placed there…

…the doctors put it in without my consent…

…the surgery was an emergency and I didn’t have a choice in the matter…

…I am still angry and frustrated about the surgery…

…but I am not angry at the wire…

…the wire didn’t force its way into my body…

…the wire doesn’t choose to stay in my body…

…it is just there…

…the wire was placed to help my body to heal…

…the wire was used to help the bones to grow back together…

…I am happy the wire is trying to help my body heal…

…even if my body thinks the wire is something that needs to be expelled…

…I give my body permission to know that in its current form the wire is not a danger to my health…

…I want my body to continue to work to remove anything that is a danger to me…

…but this wire is not a danger…

…it is there to assist the healing…

…the wire is not something that needs to be fought…

…I am happy my body is working so hard to keep me safe and healthy…

…but it doesn’t have to work on the wire…

…I choose to make the wire a member of my body until it is no longer needed…

…I release any hurt, anger, and frustration I have towards the wire…

…it is not the wire's choice to be inside me…

…it does me no good to hold hard feelings against the wire."

You will notice that in this tapping session we dealt with both the physical response to the wire as well as the emotions about how the wire got there and about the fact that it was still there.

The client reported a great deal of relief after this tapping. Not only did she no longer feel the physical pain in the area where the wire was located, but she described feeling almost a "kinship" with the wire. Her state of mind was no longer cursing this foreign object that had been put in her body, but understood that the wire’s role was to help her be safe and healthy.

I have found it very helpful to do this sort of tapping for any type of implant.

First, get emotionally clear about the need to have the implant. Second, work with the body to help it to understand that even though this is a foreign substance, that doesn’t mean it’s a danger.

Energetic Charge In The Body

There are specific types of implants that also have an energetic charge to them because of the function they perform, such as for example, a pacemaker. The approach I would use for this is very similar to any other implant, but I would add the following.

"The implant that I have is creating an energetic charge of its own…

…the energy it is creating is there to help my body find healing and relief…

…this is a foreign source of energy that my body does not know…

…I am happy my body is trying to keep me safe…

…And I ask my body to reconcile with this new form of energy…

…I am not asking my body to accept all energy as good and healthy…

…I am asking my body to tune into this particular new form of energy…

…I ask the body to understand with the wisdom from my Higher Self why this new energy has been added…

…I ask my body to utilize this new energy source for my health and well being…

…only accepting in ways that are helpful and healing…

…knowing full well that my body is designed to and needs to keep me safe…

…I trust my body to find a balanced way to use this energy for my health and well-being…

…I trust my body to reject any energy that is not useful or is unhealthy…

…I let my body know I do not think it has failed, that is not why I have added this implant…

…I let my body know that the reason I have added the implant is to help it in its job…

…I let my body know I will continue to check in with it around this issue…

…I will continue to listen to the feedback from my body around this issue…

…I want the body's feedback around this issue…

…I will work with my body around this issue."

Tapping in this fashion will assist the body in discerning what is helpful and what is not, open it to being more accepting of what is helpful, clear the emotional charge around the new energy that is being perceived, and give it encouragement to continue communicating its needs to us.

In the long term all of these outcomes can be very helpful.
