We often think of actors and actresses as leading "perfect lives." Not so, of course. They have the same types of issues as everyone else. This is clear in this article by Aileen Nobles.
My client had participated in a lot of therapy over the years with various practitioners, yet was still struggling with herself over many issues. She stars in one of the top television series and maintains a strong persona in her work life, but inside and at home it was a different story.
Recently "Jane" had begun to feel scared and shaky when she was doing interrogation scenes. Her knees would become weak and she would get so nervous she would be unable to do the scenes as well as she wanted to. These scenes needed her to be grilling a suspect in an intimidating way, and each time the anxiety was getting worse. She was afraid she would completely "melt down" on the set.
I asked her what the interrogation scene reminded her of, and there was no hesitancy at all. When she was young at least once a week she was dragged out of bed by her father in the middle of the night, and was taken downstairs along with her siblings. Sleepy and scared she was lectured and grilled as to why she had not done something perfectly during the day. Again and again he told her she was worthless, and always had his face close to hers as he spoke. Her intensity was 10 as she recalled some of these events. We started tapping:
Even though I was yanked out of bed in the middle of the night and it was terrifying, I am quite wonderful anyway.
Even though my father terrified me always asking me why I hadn't done something perfectly, I choose to love and accept myself anyway.
It was so traumatic to be yanked out of bed when I was sound asleep.
I know what's coming and it's so scary.
I never felt safe; he was always asking me questions.
I was never good enough no matter how hard I tried.
I know now that my father did not know how to be a gentle loving father, then, I thought it was my fault.
Part of me still does think I'm not good enough.
We then worked with the sub personality of the damaged little girl, continuously tapping until she could imagine the scene completely differently.
She imagined herself standing up to her father as she got bigger and he got smaller, then she went back to her bedroom in the loving embrace of an angel.
She could now think about the events with detachment and no intensity.
Another trauma she had to endure on a daily basis that probably triggered her when she had to do interrogation scenes was again with her father. He would make her sit on his lap with his face right in her face and demand that she tell him how much she loved him. At the end of the day he would again get right in her face and ask her why she hadn't told him enough times how much she loved him. As she recounted this situation she couldn't breathe properly and said she used to feel paralyzed, emotionally trying to hold on.
He's in my face.
I have to tell him how much I love him... I hate him.
I'm not safe.
He keeps asking me and asking me why don't I tell him I love him all day long.
I hate him... he scares me.
I can't breathe, I can't move, I have no strength.
But that was then and now I don't have to carry it with me any longer.
It was terrible then, I don't want to carry that energy into present time.
Letting go of the horror of his face in my face.
I had her imagine that his face was becoming smaller and black and white. She gradually turned down the volume of his voice while continuously tapping until the intensity had gone way down.
I am detaching emotionally from the horror of his interrogating me every day.
It's over now.
What if it can be over inside me?
What if I really can let it go?
What if I am free of that horrible time in my life?
We worked with her feelings of never measuring up and her repressed anger. When the intensity was down to 0, I had her run a movie of acting an interrogation scene in her mind while being as strong and involved as she wanted to be. It went perfectly.
The following week she reported that the shoot went amazingly well and she felt strong and centered.
There is still work to be done with other areas of her life, but this issue had been resolved. She told me she had talked about these events many times with therapists over the years but nothing had ever changed before.
Although Jane's situation that triggered her repressed memories is not typical of most readers, in our everyday life we are constantly placing ourselves in situations that do trigger within us our unhealed issues. With EFT we can step up to the plate and thank the Universe as we resolve them. It's amazing to me how they just keep coming (smile).
