Hi Everyone,

Many people experience prolonged grief when loved ones die and Ted Robinson's client was no exception. This grief, however, was translated into a consistent fear of death. Note how the whole thing lifted in short order and how a followup the next day confirmed the healing.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I just wanted to share a recent healing event in which I met a man and started telling him about EFT.  I practice the "three foot rule" which means that I talk about EFT to anyone who is within three feet of me.  I wanted to show him what EFT could do for him and asked him if he had any fears, etc. 

He immediately shot back, "Fear of death.”  I inquired if it he had any specific reason for such a fear and he said he had lost both of his children as a result of grand mal seizures.  When I asked their ages, he said 2 and 4 and I noticed his lower lip quivered ever so slightly.  I asked how long ago this happened and he said 23 years ago.  I asked how often he thought about it and he immediately said, "every day.”

I started the EFT process immediately without much preamble and I could see his eyes looking at me with the look of fear and wonder all at the same time.  I knew I had to be immediately successful or he would probably run out of there and never come back. 

His level of intensity, on a scale of 0 -10 started at an 8 out of 10 and initially went to a 4 out of 10.  I used words to the effect of:

Even though my children died and I don't ever want to forget them, this grief has gone on long enough, yet I love and accept myself fully and completely

As I went along I added things like:

I did everything I could and I know I didn't do anything wrong, but somehow I still feel responsible for their loss

I followed up with reminder phrases like: I've lost my children and I was powerless to do anything to help them, and I wish it had been me instead of them, but it wasn't and now I have to deal with this tragic loss.

I made sure to incorporate words that verified that he would, never forget them and never stop loving them, but I am now willing to let go of this constant pain  

As we did the second round, he went to an intensity level of 2 or 3 out of 10, and I then used the eye ladder (as I call it--it is better known as the floor to ceiling eye roll) and he went to a zero out of 10. 

When I asked him how he now felt, he first looked like he was about to cry and then he brightened and said how grateful he was to finally be without the feelings of dread that he had experienced for the last 23 years. 

Suddenly, his whole face lit up and a wide smile broke out and he shook my hand vigorously saying he felt wonderful.  I asked him to contact me the following day and when he did I asked him how he was feeling.  He immediately said he felt great and that the feeling was just no longer there.  He thanked me profusely.  I was just glad to see him heal this very old and very deep wound.  I hope this helps others as well.

With great respect,
