Hi everyone, this is a really simple recipe that does not take very long, gives you a pasta fix but is still gluten free without all those starches I don’t really like in your usual gluten free pastas.
Just follow instructions on box with the pasta and when cooked, drain and put into large salad serving bowl and liberally add olive oil, a couple of tablespoons of seeds and stir. Add in the freshly steamed vegetables and add eggs lastly add the freshly chopped parsley.
Some of you have wanted an online version of the handout so here it is.
Basic recipe, technique & tapping sequence
Use two fingers (index and middle) of the dominant hand for tapping. You may tap either side of your body for any point. Tap fairly rapidly, approx. 7 times or so in 3 seconds. Remember it is tapping, not hitting – no force needed.
Identify the issue
Start by identifying the issue you would like to work on. Be sure you are only targeting one issue at a time, trying to combine issues in the process will compromise your results.
Rate the Distress
In order to measure progress, tune into the problem and rate your distress from 0 to 10, where 0 is no problem and 10 is the greatest intensity.
Example: the intensity of your head or back ache, or the intensity of any emotion – fear, anger, sadness etc
Rub the sore spot while you repeat the setup phrase three times (most effective)
Tap the Karate Chop (KC) point while you repeat the setup phrase three times (easier)
The Setup Phrase
Either massaging your “sore spot” or by tapping your “karate chop point”, say three times…
Even though I have this (insert problem here)______________ , I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
While repeating a word or so as a reminder of the problem [reminder phrase], e.g. ‘headache/scared’, tap on each point approximately 7 times each, starting from the top of head point, in the order they appear down the body [refer to diagram].
Do the ‘9 Gamut Process’ – Optional but helpful to engage both sides of the brain in the first round of tapping
While facing forward and keeping your head still, tap the Gamut point continuously while performing the following nine actions & repeating reminder phrase/word:
Post- first round tapping
Rate any remaining distress
Repeat sequence 1-14 [you can omit the Gamut point sequence] if rating went down but still above a two. Do more rounds of tapping, adjusting the wording appropriately (e.g. “even though I still feel a bit sad or I have this remaining sadness, I deeply and completely love and accept myself”)
Stop when you feel relief & where as close to 0 as possible and ready to move on.

Back in 2003 an Adelaide Esoteric Astrologer (and much more besides) by the name of Elia Laurikainen suggested that I could ask myself the following questions. They became a way to refocus my own work and soul direction at the time. I have needed to revisit these questions over the years and find myself using them again now as a way to reframe and navigate how to live my passions and share them with others in a different way .
Here they are:
Exploring these answers in a journal or using a vision board can be wonderfully illuminating and you can add the following questions to further explore your gifts
Ask yourself “What is my gift to the world?”
There is a lovely quote by Mother Theresa that goes
Many people are wanting to live more authentically and feel that what they do or how they live, is more aligned with their own hearts passions as well as being of benefit to the wider community or the planet. I like my intuitive processes to have a practical expression and so I love activities like this. You can also use automatic writing and see what you come up with.
Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my blog and being part of sharing the wellness journey. I will be sharing some of my own wellness strategies and resources, my seasonal garden edibles and of course recipes that are wholesome, dairy and gluten free and generally easy to make – well in theory anyway.
