Rebecca Marina offers this first hand account of a successful use of EFT for trauma ensuing from what was, arguably, the worst natural disaster in U.S. History.


By Rebecca Marina

It is important to pre-frame this story by telling you that Paulette is a very gifted intuitive healer and medium. She knew something was coming to New Orleans but she refused to "see". She felt devastated that she was no longer in a position to help others because of her own extreme emotional trauma.

Paulette lived only 5 blocks from the Mighty Mississippi in downtown New Orleans. She heard Katrina was coming and like so many others, fled reluctantly. She took only the bare minimum thinking she would be back in 2 or 3 days. Here is her story...

At the beginning of the session, Paulette was almost hysterical and exhausted from her ordeal. She felt hopeless, abandoned, betrayed & very angry at people for criticizing the officials in New Orleans. Worse, she felt doubtful she could ever do her work again. She felt as if she had absolutely nothing left in this world. (Paulette is a very gifted Intuitive and spiritual healer)

By the end of the session, Paulette was full of hope and ready to put her life back together again. The transformation was just awesome!

Paulette asked me to share the session with you all in hopes it may help someone else. She is after all, a wonderful healer herself.

At the beginning of our phone session, I asked Paulette to tell me a little of her story so we could address her most pressing emotions first. Paulette was almost hysterical and could hardly talk. She rated her level of anxiety and confusion at a 10. Paulette reported feeling foggy, numb, hopeless, dis-connected, displaced and angry.

We began by addressing her #10 feeling of being displaced, confused and foggy headed.

Even though I feel so confused, my life is upside down, and I don't know what to do....

We followed with:

Even though I don't understand why this had to happen to ME....

Even though I don't understand why this sneaked up on me- I refused to "see" this coming....

I release this fear that has gotten a hold of me....

I I've always been the strong one, it's hard for me to ask for help....

I can't help anyone else now and I don't know what to do. ...

I am afraid I won't be able to help anyone and I won't be able to do my work....

We then re-checked Paulette"s intensity on "confusion" and she still felt it was a 6. I should have asked "How do you know it's still at a 6", because Paulette became distracted and started talking about how angry she felt that the media was criticizing the mayor of New Orleans so much.

She started to get very emotional and I had Paulette tap on herself while telling me the story. The "tell a story" is a wonderful technique for dissolving emotions, tapping while just talking about it.

When Paulette was a bit calmer, I told her we would "harness the power" of her anger. I explained a little about the "Volcano technique". Anger, used properly has the power to transform negative to positive in very short order.

I asked Paulette to give me some details of why she felt angry and we had some great set up phrases in:

Even though I feel so angry at the media for criticizing the mayor- at least he didn't leave- I love and accept myself.

Even though I feel so angry at the Red Cross and the salvation army for Selling cloths, buy one get one free, I love and accept myself.

Even though I feel so angry I could just scream (and she did scream a few choice words) I deeply love and accept myself.

We then stopped and Paulette said she now felt great! I asked her to re-check the original emotion of confusion and it was down to none at all.

We then tapped in some positive choices (Dr Carrington) and Paulette became more calm, centered, and ready to pick up the pieces and move forward. The difference was just incredible.

Love, Rebecca
