Hi Everyone,

Helen Bressler of the UK may well have thwarted a full blown set of MS symptoms with her timely use of EFT.

Hugs, Gary

By Helen P. Bressler, EFT-ADV

Mark (not his real name) had been diagnosed with MS over 30 years ago.  Nonetheless, his level of health and independence were remarkably good and he had returned to school to complete a master’s degree in education.  He had decided to visit a school advisor concerning the possibility of undiagnosed dyslexia.  The advisor refused to consider this possibility, insisting Mark’s difficulties were MS related.  Mark had been curtly dismissed.

When Mark came to me he was feeling fearful that he would slip into a major MS relapse.  He was also feeling disconnected from himself.  I began by asking Mark if he was feeling the advisor’s comments in any part of his body.  Mark replied that he was feeling as if he’d been punched in his solar plexus.  The solar plexus represents a sense of self, and it was therefore no surprise that Mark was feeling disconnected.  Mark’s response to the advisor’s comments and dismissal had created a short circuit, or ‘zzzzztttttttt’ as Gary would say, to Mark’s energy system.

Mark had also begun experiencing tingling and numbness down the right hand side of his whole body, from top to toe.  Stating he had not experienced such ‘MS type symptoms’ in many years, this physical experience added to his fear about an impending serious MS relapse.  We could have tapped on Mark’s fear and disconnection; yet recognizing that the cause of Mark’s disruption had occurred in the meeting itself, I asked Mark to visualize the meeting, as if it were a movie (the Movie Technique) and to talk me through it.  This would likely expose specific emotions experienced during the meeting.  Mark talked his way through the scenes with the advisor.  When he paused I asked him to describe what he was feeling (he’d reached the point where the advisor had told Mark he couldn’t possibly have dyslexia).

What came up was anger toward the advisor.  We tapped on the anger until his level of intensity had reduced from 10 to 2 on a scale of 0 to 10. Then it suddenly rose again to 8.  Mark stated that he had not been taken seriously.  He recognized, with tears streaming down his face, that this linked to earlier experiences in his life.  This then lead to the core issue of abandonment which Mark had experienced by his family at the onset of his MS.  Mark also expressed a deep rage at his family for not taking his needs into consideration.

We tapped on these issues [GC COMMENT: It may also be helpful to identify several specific events underlying this issue] for several minutes until the level of intensity of each one had been reduced to 0.  We also tapped on forgiveness regarding Mark’s family, the advisor and Mark himself.  Gleefully, Mark announced that the tingling and numbness had not only reduced but had disappeared completely.  He also stated that he no longer felt any discomfort in his solar plexus and that he was feeling back in touch with himself.  His fear had completely vanished.

Mark called me two weeks after our session, sounding confident and happy.  He stated that he had not experienced any further ‘MS type’ symptoms.  Mark had gone back to the student advisor department where he had tests and was diagnosed with a mild form of dyslexia (which we addressed in a subsequent session).

This example reiterates the necessity to address the feelings experienced at the time of the disruption.  The Movie Technique has proven helpful for uncovering specific feelings.  Mark’s story also acknowledges that deeper, core issues can often be exposed.  Certain scenarios, such as Mark’s meeting with the advisor may give an opportunity to release visceral core issues.  Mark’s initial anger at the advisor had allowed deeply rooted abandonment and rage to be addressed.

It has been my experience that physical manifestation will often occur, such as Mark’s MS-type tingling, when a core issue is ready to be addressed.  Once the issue is addressed, very often the physical symptoms subside and disappear.  Perhaps then, we can find gratitude for both the difficult situations and physical manifestations that arise and ultimately lead to release and peace.
