How To Stop Imaginary Arguments With EFT

Rome visit, June 2008 - 57 There I was, all alone, just minding my own business, typing away on the computer. I wasn’t doing anything particularly demanding and my mind was just wandering.

Later that evening I was expecting to meet a friend, lets call her Molly, and I idly imagined how our conversation would go.

I had just found out that a plan of mine wasn’t going to work out, and I imagined telling Molly how it had all gone pear shaped.

As we ‘talked’ in my imagination, I imagined her response to the news, somehow it sounded critical and a little patronising. “Hey, just a minute, that’s not fair!” I thought, getting a little annoyed.

Have you ever had imaginary arguments?

Preparing for conversations that are due to happen later, or rehashing conversations and arguments that have already occurred.

Pain & Stress Relief Workshop

I’m running a one day workshop for the Northumberland Cancer Support Group at Cancer Bridge, nr Hexham.

The workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to EFT
  • Using EFT to relieve pain and physical discomfort
  • Introduction to ZPoint
  • Stress relief with EFT & ZPoint

I am one of the support group’s volunteer therapists and I’m very interested in the use of these kinds of techniques to make life easier for patients and their carers.

The workshop is only open to members of the support group. However if you are interested in this kind of work please get in touch.

EFT In Prison

A good friend of mine works in a women’s prison. She sent me some examples of the kind of thing she’s using EFT for, here are just a couple (The names have been changed):

  • In October she treated Mary for flashbacks & nightmares which occurred two or three times per week. The nightmares were the result of the traumatic memory of her boyfriend nearly killing her. When they started working, Mary rated the level of distress at 7 on the 0 to 10 scale when she thought about that traumatic incident. After two rounds of EFT Mary’s intensity level had dropped to 0, since then there have been no flashbacks or nightmares (it is now December).
  • Patricia, had toothache for three days, just prior to the session she was screaming and shouting at a member of staff apparently because of pain and frustration. She rated her distress as 10 out of 10. After one round of EFT that had dropped to 2 out of 10 she reported numbness in the area that had been hurting, and came a couple of hours later requesting another round EFT.

I think that these are impressive results achieved under difficult conditions.

Postscript: Since I wrote this article a year ago my friend has been using EFT to great effect and has even introduced it to the staff as well as the inmates.

Waiting Room Tapping

A few weeks ago I had to visit my local A&E department. The last time I’d been at this hospital was for day surgery (at least I thought it was only going to take a day). I’d just come round from the general anaesthetic after the surgery and I was lying on in the recovery ward. One of the nurses looked at my dressing and asked a doctor to check it, because she thought I might have been bleeding. He poked and prodded vigorously at my abdomen. Of course, I was lying on my back as he did this, I looked down the length of my body to see what he was doing and I saw him withdraw his gloved hand and his finger was covered in blood … my blood! I promptly had what the medics call a vaso-vagal response – I fainted! I came round to find a nurse holding my hand and telling me that everything would be alright and not to be afraid, I didn’t feel afraid, I felt embarrassed and stupid! Every time they tried to get me to sit up I would flake out, eventually they got tired of trying to get me vertical and decided to keep me in overnight. I was moved to another ward and was fine, if rather sheepish, after a good nights sleep.
