Hi Everyone,

Monica Broadfoot Johnson was experiencing soreness and plugging in her ears. She says, "Well, lately, I have found that my ears are very sore and quite plugged. No traditional procedures were clearing them. Finally, I began thinking about how one of our Native American counselors had told me how Medicine men often go deaf as they age. He said that the body simply refuses to accept anymore trauma." Read about how she used EFT to clear the problem. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I just read Dr. Rosanna Massey's article about getting rid of negativity after working in extreme situations. I thought that I'd piggyback on that article. Even though I work as an elementary school counselor and others tend to think that it's one of the easier counseling jobs (writing on my walls??), we have been trained to go out into the community when a crisis occurs. For years, after spending a day with a whole school that is in crisis, I would be completely wiped out. Often the next day would be spent either at home or in school not being effective.

However, a few years ago, after learning EFT, we again had another trauma. Not only did I work with the students using EFT along with the original training, but on the way home I tapped on myself for all of the trauma that I had absorbed. I was in the shock when the following morning I arose feeling very refreshed. So EFT is part of my routine following trauma. Thank you for this technique.

Well, lately, I have found that my ears are very sore and quite plugged. No traditional procedures were clearing them. Finally, I began thinking about how one of our Native American counselors had told me how Medicine men often go deaf as they age. He said that the body simply refuses to accept anymore trauma. As a result, I began tapping for all of the trauma that I have held prior to learning EFT. This was about 20 years worth and occurred as I held all of the trauma inside by rethinking the day and having dreams about the families at night.

For some reason, I had not thought about clearing those past issues, maybe since I don't do that anymore. The protocol went something like this:

Even though I carried this sadness 24 hours a day, and I named some of the situations, I had dreams about these traumas. I didn't realize that I was carrying this negative energy. I ask my body to forgive me for being so ignorant. I can let go of all of this negativity that I've carried for far too long.

I included the 9 gamut and the floor to ceiling eye movement for good measure. The next morning I awoke with very comfortable and clear ears. I now tap after each traumatic session also. I also ask for protective light to surround me.

GC COMMENT: An additional approach here might include using EFT on some of the specific events from the past 20 years. This often brings deeper and more lasting results.

I never cease to be amazed.
