Hi Everyone,

Denis Franklin from Australia comes upon a friend being attacked in the streets and immediately applies EFT for the emotional trauma. Success. Wouldn't it be nice if we could apply EFT immediately after every traumatic experience?

Hugs, Gary

I have been using EFT with tremendous results, both in my counseling sessions and on its own, for eight months now.

Recently I came upon a lady I knew, who was being attacked by another woman!  I could hear the yelling, and recognized her from a distance.  The aggressor had been punching and kicking my friend, and hitting her with her umbrella.  When I reached them, the former schoolteacher in me came out, and I assertively asked the aggressor, who apparently has serious psychiatric problems, what was going on.  She started to explain to me, but it turned out that my friend wasn’t even directly involved in what the other woman was upset about.

I told her to move on, and slowly and reluctantly she did so. The matter was considered serious enough to be reported to the police. There was also a young woman there with my friend, and later we each had to give the police our statement of what had happened.

The point of my telling you this is that, after the aggressor had gone, I asked both ladies if they would like to be free of the pent-up emotion they were both feeling.  Of course, they both said they would.  The young woman who had been watching appeared outwardly to be even more agitated than the one who had been attacked!  My friend had previously heard me mention EFT, though she didn’t know anything about it, and the young lady had never even heard of it.

I sat them both down opposite me in a quiet place and took them through a first round of tapping, explaining very, very briefly as we went, including a brief prayer, and using their feeling words. They mirrored my (left-handed) tapping on myself.

After that first, often-interrupted round, both ladies said the level of their emotional upset had gone from a 10 out of 10 down to about a 4 out of 10!  Then, after an uninterrupted second round, both agreed that the stress from that trauma had been reduced to zero! And they were very grateful!  Later I prayed for the poor disturbed lady.

So, as we hear so often, we never know when EFT is going to come in handy, or what it’s going to be used for!
