Hi Everyone,

Domestic violence is one of those unspoken atrocities that exists in our culture. Fortunately, Ann Peck found uses for EFT right after the abuse occurs.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

It’s been 4 years since EFT blessed my life with its presence.  Thank you so much.  I’ve dedicated my EFT practice to working with women, especially those with histories of abuse.  Teach what you know, they say ... and so I do.

EFT has been instrumental in my healing in so many ways.  My history includes sexual, physical and verbal abuse, among other things.  While EFT has helped in healing the effects of past abuse, sadly, it cannot prevent abuse from happening.  It does, however, give us something to use when abuse occurs.  

Recently, I was physically assaulted by my former husband.  My children were present and my oldest got involved by jumping onto her father, telling him not to hurt her mom.  She then called 911.

EFT to the rescue ... in a manner of speaking, that is.  Upon getting to safety and while waiting for the police, I immediately began tapping.  (I can ’t believe he did this … I’m really OK ... It wasn’t my fault … I didn’t cause this to happen … Need to calm down … Kids need me.)

EFT calmed my emotions and pulled my scattered energies back into balance, allowing me to attend to my oldest child.  Telling me she was so scared and that she thought her dad was going to kill me, I asked her if we could tap.  She looked back at her dad and promptly refused.  (her dad is against tapping – probably because he has seen it work!)

I tapped as a surrogate for her and noticed her breathing started to even out and the crying and shaking stopped.  (I tapped on, … this precious child … this amazing strong child … this courageous child … feeling safe … breathing calmly.)

Later that evening I tapped with my youngest as we talked about what happened.  By the time we were done, he was able to rest peacefully through the night.  This event continues to give us lots of opportunities for tapping as we navigate through the legal system and our own individual healing and I cannot imagine life without EFT!

Blessings to you,

Ann Peck & children, ages 11 & 6
