Jaw Pain Related To Stress/Anxiety at Work

I’ve had this jaw pain which has been bothering me on and off for a few weeks. It felt like it could be a tooth pain but was hurting my jaw when I chewed. It’s reached a point where I really need to do something about it. My husband reckons I should go see a dentist but my intuition is telling me this is emotionally related.

I looked up teeth and jaw in my trusty Louise Hay Heal My Body book and found that the pain related to the inability to express my thoughts or the inability to accept new ideas. Well, this seemed very appropriate to my work situation. I have a meeting tomorrow about the status of my project knowing full well that the user testing is not going well, the development is incomplete and I need to release the software in a few weeks. I could feel my chest tightening, my heart beating faster, my head was pulsing. With all my energy healing work, I was shocked to recognise the symptoms of stress and anxiety overwhelming my body.

Firstly, I’m going to spend 5 minutes giving myself a Oneness Blessing. This always alleviates the jaw pain.

….

I feel lighter. The pain has reduced from a 9/10 to a 6/10. I still feel some emotional blocks. I’m going to use EFT to drill down and found the root cause of my anxiety. I need to identify the pattern that is causing this to recur because I have seen this happen twice in the last 12 months.

Here’s the tapping script I used:

KC: Even though I have this fear, I deeply and completely love and accept myself (2x)

KC: Even though I have all these anxieties about today, about the meeting tomorrow, about how today will flow I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

TH: All parts of me are healing these feelings across all parts of myself and across all parts of the universe

EB: All these feelings

SE: All this anxiety

UN: All these fears

CB: All these worries

UA: All this pain

Wrist: I choose to let it all go.

Take a deep breath in. Hold for 2 counts. Release it and say “Peace”

A thought just popped into my head. My project is delaying other significant projects in the team and there are time pressures about having to get this project live. My anxiety levels have dropped from a 10/10 to a 7/10.

KC: Even thought I still have some of these anxieties about all this pressure I’m under for this project to go live next week, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. (3x)

TH: All parts of me are healing these feelings across all parts of myself and across all parts of the universe

EB: All these pressures

SE: All these worries

UN: All this stress

CH: All this anxiety

CB: All this unnecessary pressure I’m putting myself under

UA: All this pressure and this stress

Wrist: I choose to let it all go

Take a deep breath in. Hold for 2 counts. Release it and say “Peace”

Now I can feel my pressure and stress dropping down to a 5/10. I can see what I need to do ensure success in this project and to alleviate conflict.

KC: Even though I still have some of this fear and worry and I don’t want any conflict, I deeply and completely love and forgive myself and it’s safe to let it all go. (3x)

TH: All parts of me are healing these feelings across all parts of myself and across all parts of the universe

EB: All these remaining anxieties

SE: All these remaining fears and worries

UN: All these stresses

CB: All these anxieties, these fears, these worries, the potential conflicts I might encounter.

UA: I’m too scared to encounter conflict. I really don’t want it. I really don’t need it.

Wrist: I release and let it all go. It’s safe to let it all go

Take a deep breath in. Hold for 2 counts. Release it and say “Peace”

Anxiety level is a 4/10. I’m anxious about who I have to work with and the personality types clashing with mine and attracting conflict into my life. Also, I feel like if I hear a “No” when I put my case forward to go live then I’ll feel stopped and won’t want to carry on going forward in this project.

KC: Even though I’m worried about the conflict I might encounter when I push for what I want, I deeply and completely love and forgive and accept myself. (3x)

TH: All parts of me are healing these feelings across all parts of myself and across all parts of the universe

EB: I release all this anxiety

SE: I release this fear of conflict

UN: I release this need for conflict

CH: I release this need to have drama in my life

CB: I release this need for all this anxiety in my life

UA: I release this need to have all this fear and worry in my life

Wrist: I release this need to have all this stress in my life.

Take a deep breath in. Hold for 2 counts. Release it and say “Peace”

What I’m starting to realise is that I have this need to have anxiety in my life. What we don’t realise is that sometimes these emotions we are experiencing as an adult are impressed upon us from a young age and cause us to re-create the same pattern when we are older. So although consciously I don’t believe that I need this stress, subliminally my subconscious believes that I need this stress. My subconscious is trying to re-create situations where I am most comfortable as a protection mechanism. So now what I’m going to do is tap on my subconscious need to have this drama in my life and have people in my life that I’m scared of.

What I’m realizing from my childhood is that females where the dominant sex in my life, and amongst them, because I’m Samoan, there was always a pecking order. Because of this tapping, I’m awakening to the belief I have about having to stick to this pecking order in my life. It’s quite funny because this matriarchal system that exists in my head seems contradictory to the patriarchal society that both my parents were actually brought up in.

I’m feeling like I need to take another deep breath. All these realisations are helping me to let go of so much junk that I’ve been holding on to. I can feel my anxiety levels dropping to 3/10 because of this awareness of the pecking order.

KC: Even though I need to respect the matriarchal pecking order, I deeply and completely love and accept myself

Even though I have this need to respect the matriarchal society, I deeply and completely love and accept myself (2x)

TH: All parts of me are healing these feelings across all parts of myself and across all parts of the universe

EB: I release and let go of this need for this ranking

SE: I release and let go of this need for this pecking order

UE: I release and let go of this need to fear women of authority

UN: I release and let go of this need to fear older women

CH: I release and let go of this need for this female dominated society

CB: I release and let go of this matriarchal society of created for myself in my head

UA: I release and let go of these matriarchal beliefs

Wrist: Its safe to let it all go

Take a deep breath in. Hold for 2 counts. Release it and say “Peace”

I feel like my fear of elderly women was 8/10 and has now dropped to 6/10 and I can see how this relates to my mum, my aunt and my nana. I still feel the fear I have for their authority when I was experiencing it as a 7 year old child. So now I’m leaving the anxiety tapping because the root of this anxiety stems from this matriarchal fear belief that I need to alleviate. I’m going to visualise me as a 7year old child experiencing the wrath of the “bosses” in my life – these women – and tap away that child’s anxiety. This will eliminate this fear from my adult life so that the pattern does not recur. Then I’ll replace the old pattern with a new one which I would like for my life going forward.
