How to use EFT Tapping During an Anxiety Dreamdream to freedom book

Dear EFT Community,

EFT has become so ingrained in Laura's set of skills for dealing with stress, that when she's tense in a dream, her dreaming self begins doing EFT!

I am not a practitioner but someone who has used EFT on myself to address a wide range of emotional issues over the past 2 years.

Recently, I was in a situation that many people may relate to: I was dreaming and in the dream I could not open my eyes during a tense situation that required I be able to see what was going on.

The situation was making me very anxious and holding my eyelids open with one hand was not going to work.

With no forethought at all I began rubbing the "sore spot" and saying:

"Even though I can't open my eyes, I deeply and completely accept myself."

The Setup phrase was barely out of my mouth before my eyelids were open halfway and I was able to do what I needed to do!

Upon waking I had to laugh at how EFT has infiltrated my psyche to the point that I would use this tool at a whole other level of consciousness. This was not a lucid dream where the dreamer is aware of dreaming and aware of being able to manipulate the outcome—just a normal dream.

Of course, I realized the message I was getting and have now added "not wanting to see certain things" to my list of issues to apply EFT to (while awake).
