By Louise Woods

I have been an EFT practitioner for about 3 years now. Previously I was a software engineer and had a successful career. After many years of stress and feeling there had to be more to life I took the plunge and started practising as a complementary therapist. I met a lot of resistance from my family when I changed careers. I think that they thought I had "lost the plot"!

Over the years they have come to accept that I'm not going to go back to doing a "normal" job. My dad in particular has been quite skeptical about all that I do. In the last couple of years he has had angina and had to have an operation to fit a stent in one of his arteries.

Luckily this was successful and he has been feeling much better. He is however on both cholesterol and blood pressure tablets. I really thought that EFT could benefit my Dad and knew he was very skeptical and unlikely to try it.

A couple of months ago I thought I'd show my parents an EFT film and see what happened. After watching it, my Dad asked me "is there anyone in the UK who does this?". Both my Mum and I commented that I do EFT and that he has clearly not taken notice of what I do! (I've since done some EFT on myself for the issues that raised!). I then spent some time showing him how to do EFT and suggested some tapping wording to get him started. These were along the lines of:

Even though I have this high blood pressure...
Even though my blood pressure is too high, I choose for it to return to a normal healthy level...
Even though I don't like taking these blood pressure tablets...

I really didn't think he would go through with and that he was just humouring me. But I thought at least I've tried.

I'm pleased to say that I was wrong. He started out tapping every day on his high blood pressure. My Mum commented that he seemed a bit less stressed. I then spoke to him a few weeks later and he reported that he was not tapping on his blood pressure anymore but that he was tapping on his temper! I was gobsmacked!

He has a very quick temper and really doesn't handle stress well at all. I knew this was more like the core issue of his physical manifestations but wanted to tread carefully around his skepticism. He has been tapping regularly since. The other day my Mum asked me what have I done to my Dad!

He is a now a lot calmer, his temper is much better and he even apologizes if he does lose it! If he starts losing his temper my Mum now says "tap, tap" and he does! His blood pressure has also come down. He has even started telling other people about EFT now. What a transformation! I'm going to encourage him to keep tapping on a regular basis and suggest he start looking at some childhood issues. I feel I have opened a door in my skeptical Dad. EFT is such an amazing tool, I love it. Thank you Gary for sharing it with us.

In deepest gratitude,

Louise Woods
