Hi Everyone,

Shelley Hawkins-Clark expertly uses EFT to collapse a trauma that, at first, didn't seem related to unconscious attachments that may have kept a house from selling. She says, "Through the process of tapping to clear the aspects as well as establish reframes, many light bulbs came on and Debby realized the house represented her last ties to her first husband and a crime unpunished.  She left the session completely at peace and with additional tapping homework.  She had been able to let go of all conscious and unconscious attachments to the house."

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

As I write this the housing market is poor and so I thought readers might appreciate the following related experience with one of my clients.  Debby came in recently to address a health issue with EFT and was filling me in on the results of an issue we had worked on 2 years earlier.

It represents how quickly circumstances can turn around when we release our limiting beliefs, old attachments, pain and unfinished business.  When it comes to houses, sometimes that may mean peace of mind with our current situation or it can mean the difference between a house that sells and a house that we can’t get rid of.

At that time, Debby came in frustrated that she and her husband were unable to sell a house they used for rental income.  Over the past 4 years they had tried to sell it off-and-on without success, receiving only ridiculously low offers.

The house was in Orem, Utah, while they live in Idaho.  It was a house she owned for 25 years and kept for rental income after remarrying and eventually moving away.  They now needed the money to pay off mounting medical bills and debt from her husband’s recent injuries.

She related that being a non-LDS in an LDS area made it difficult as the LDSs tended to buy only houses from others within their faith.  LDS stands for Latter Day Saints, often referred to as Mormons.  Please understand that neither I nor my client in any way mean to be offensive toward this faith.  The point of describing this part of the story is how irrelevant such beliefs can be and how powerful it can be to “unhook” ourselves from limiting beliefs, then flourish despite the appearance of circumstances.

LDS acquaintances had let her know that they often boycott houses being sold by people not within their faith.  Debby’s rental house was well-maintained.  There was no outwardly visible reason that the house wouldn’t sell.  The houses all around hers were unkempt, yet selling quickly for their asking price or better.  We cleared her limiting beliefs around this idea along with others, which led to memories with her first husband and his death twenty five years earlier.

Her first husband and their three year old daughter were living in Ohio at the time and packing for a much anticipated camping trip together.  They had planned to go on a bike ride before leaving for their trip, with their daughter riding in the child seat on her dad’s bike.  At the last minute, Debby decided not to go and stayed back to finish up some details and run errands.  They agreed she would meet up with him by car in about 20 minutes.  She took her daughter out of the bike seat, kissed and waived to her husband, went in the house to finish packing, then left by car to meet with him.

Just a few minutes from their house, she was driving by a traffic accident and could see a mangled bicycle along with emergency vehicles.  It was as she feared.  He had been killed instantly by a drunk driver.

In the ensuing court case, the drunk driver was a lawyer with “buddies” in the legal system.  He was sent away with a relative slap on the hand and some fines, only to do it again a week later.  Another woman was nearly killed after she ran into a telephone pole in an accident with the same drunk driver.  His cavalier attitude was difficult for Debby.

We cleared the many aspects of the circumstance including injustice, wanting someone to pay, rage, loss, shock, sadness, guilt, dreams unfulfilled, the “if only’s,” and finally made our way back to the “unsellable” house.  The house was their dream home that they had planned to build together.  After her husband died, Debby moved to Utah and continued with their house plans.  She and her daughter lived there for some time.  After remarrying, they stayed for a couple more years, and then moved to Idaho.

Through the process of tapping to clear the aspects as well as establish reframes, many light bulbs came on and Debby realized the house represented her last ties to her first husband and a crime unpunished.  She left the session completely at peace and with additional tapping homework.  She had been able to let go of all conscious and unconscious attachments to the house.

When I followed up by phone the next day, she related that a couple hours after she left, she experienced chills and achiness that went into the night.  She felt like she was “detoxing” and “hitting bottom physically.”  By the time we talked that morning, she was feeling like a “new Debby.”

At her recent session, I learned that later the same day there was an offer made on the house. They sold it for cash at the amount they wanted, without any bickering or negotiation!

Because houses can be very metaphorical for our lives, when they won’t sell or we find it hard to leave, it is important to consider questions such as what we are afraid to let go of; what part of our life the house represents; what happened while we were living there, what are we afraid to move forward to; and what we are or are not willing to become.  Best wishes to those who are selling houses!

Shelley
