Dear EFT Community,
EFT practitioner, Eros Biasiolo, has a client who asks for help overcoming an inability to recall his dreams by using EFT. It turns out to be linked to (surprise, surprise) a childhood event.

My clients seem to be able to tell me about their problems very easily and I was positively struck by a man in his late fifties who requested that he learn EFT to "Remember my dreams.”
Now, I wish I could have seen my face when I was asked this, and then I said with a lot of confidence, “OK, let’s do it.” After a brief investigation, he told me that when he was 13-years-old or so, he used to speak while sleeping and he shared the room with his older brother.
He admits having CHOSEN not to dream from then on, so as not to have to argue with his brother who was always pulling his leg for this reason.
So, in my usual playful manner I said to the man in his fifties, “Are you ready for a time warp into the past to reverse that choice you made?” He excitingly said, “Yes,” probably believing in some sort of time travel.
Even though I made this choice of not dreaming any more, I deeply and completely accept myself.
We did a few rounds of tapping in mixed and creative order, and with the use of reframing, or quoting his brother's sentences, and then we implemented the Choices Method.
I absolutely don’t care about the choice I made then, because I CHOOSE NOW to dream again and remember my dreams.
When we were finished, it was nearly bedtime, so I said to him, “You let me know tomorrow morning ok?” It was a funny thing, because this session took place during a two-day workshop in front of many others.
The following morning upon opening the day I asked him about his night and the dreams he had. He dreamed about his daughter and he told the dream in detail in front of all attendees, to their surprise.
I hear from him occasionally and he is still very excited when he thanks me because he now dreams, “Even when I take a brief afternoon nap!”
