“I Can Never Work on THAT Issue! I Just Won’t Go There!”
What I love about EFT is that there is the possibility of working with issues and traumas so scary that you refuse to even go there. By that I mean you don’t want to think about it never mind do any healing work with it. And yet it is in these places that we don’t want to go that is contained the possibility of our greatest freedom.
EFT contains a whole set of ways to work with these kinds of issues or major traumas. This involves creeping up on the problem so subtly and so gently that you move at the rate that feels completely safe and OK to you.
How can EFT do that?
It was found that EFT can do its great releasing work even when you are completely dissociated from the problem. Even when you are not connecting with the past feelings and emotions, keeping a safe distance, you can tap away the charge.
And then as the charge becomes less and less, you feel safe to slowly, slowly come closer to the problem whilst still tapping.
In fact, even if the problem is too big to think about working with in this way, there is still a way of working. Simply to tap away how you feel about working with the problem. When you take proper accredited EFT training, you learn techniques such as “The Movie Technique”, “Creeping Up on The Problem” and most significantly “The Tearless Trauma technique,” which is an amazing way of working with the unmentionable!
There can be a lot of shame or embarrassment connected to some of these “can’t go there” issues which can prevent someone seeking help.
Yet, with EFT, it is not even necessary for the practitioner to know any detail at all. You can work with the most upsetting situations gently and without telling any of the story out aloud.
So if you have any issues or past experiences that fit into these categories, it’s time you got freedom from those and reclaim the part of you trapped back in time in the trauma.
Contact a practitioner and say you want to clear something without telling them what it is! Any good practitioner will be able to work with you with no problem at all.
