Facing the Fear of Ziplining at Hawk’s Nest in Seven Devils, NC

I was a pole vaulter in college, so my sky diver wife Dagmar didn’t expect me to experience an attack of fear when ziplining for the first time in 2018. The initial zip was only 200 feet long, but it ended on a rickety platform that was 100 feet in the air. Despite being tethered by a safety strap to the central post, the lack of a comfy foam landing pit below triggered childhood memories of standing at the edge of a scary precipice overlook in Canyon de Chelly, AZ. On the second zip I held on tight like my life depended on it.

On the next elevated platform, I did intense Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) tapping which allowed me to do a half-mile long zip across the valley at tree top level. The fear started to subside, but didn’t completely go away. The following summer we decided to go to a different zipline in the mountains, but came prepared with another antidote for fear. My classical homeopath, Jen McLaughlin, recommended Argentum Nitricum. It worked like a charm, and I had so much fun that we are doing it again this summer.

Homeopathy can also be useful for managing other kinds of fear which may impact our beliefs about abundance. It can treat fear of stock market crashes that can impair out ability to create wealth through investments. Homeopathy is a form of energetic healing using extreme dilutions of natural substances that effectively increase your vibrations to attract what you want into your life. It works well for a variety of health conditions as well including pain, respiratory illnesses and women’s health issues.

EFT tapping can be synergistic with homeopathy in healing limiting beliefs about money that hold us back from achieving our financial goals. Past experiences of scarcity are like malware programs that have been downloaded into the emotional files of our central nervous system through the acupuncture meridians. Tapping on the acupoints can uninstall those programs like hitting the delete key on your computer. EFT can also be useful for physical illnesses such as autoimmune, pain and sinus conditions.

Everyone has blocks to creating abundant health and wealth that represent blind spots in our approach to life. Emotional turmoil and physical symptoms are messages from our mind and body that can guide us on the path to our goals. Please join my wife Dagmar Ehling, LAc, MAc, DOM(NM), and I to learn more in a Saturday, 8/6/2022, live interactive Zoom workshop on Abundant Health & Wealth: A Mind-Body-Spirit Approach to Success which will also include instruction in healthy nutrition and financial skills.
