Hi Everyone,

Listen in as Rosemary Eads uses EFT over the phone to calm her step-daughter. Also note the delayed reaction at the end.

Hugs, Gary

By Rosemary Eads

As a mental health counselor, I use EFT with the majority of my clients to excellent effect. Recently, I offered EFT sessions at a Fair, and every person, regardless of the issue, had a reduction of intensity in a matter of minutes. I have helped people stop smoking, eliminate food cravings and neutralize traumas of all kinds.

However, my most gratifying experience occurred when my twenty-something step-daughter was mugged in Minneapolis, hundreds of miles away from my husband and I. She was returning from the store on foot at about 5pm when a boy on a bike tried to steal her purse. She instinctively clutched the purse and as a result was dragged along the road by the would-be thief. Her screams eventually drove the thief off and she stumbled into her apartment shaken and bloody.

She called us the next day to tell us what happened and reported that she was crying a great deal and was still shaking. I asked her if she was interested in doing EFT over the phone and she agreed.

I worked with her for about a half an hour, going over many of the aspects of the incident. While her intensity level was a 9 at the beginning of our work, she was down to a 4 at the end. My instincts told me that because the incident was so fresh, it might be appropriate to leave the intensity at a 4 for the time being.

When we spoke the next day, she reported that she was no longer weepy or shaky. She felt that the incident was unfortunate, but was no longer preoccupying her thoughts. Her intensity had gone down to a zero on its own.

I was so grateful to have this extraordinary tool to help her with her trauma. As parents, the physical distance between us and our children can be a source of great frustration in a time of crisis. EFT helped us bridge the distance and enabled me to comfort my step-daughter in a powerful and magnificently effective way.
