Tossed on the waves of our emotions, we forget that we are the sea.


We live in a world of stress.  Economic forces make it so that we have to have multiple incomes to sustain ourselves and our families, if we happen to be among the lucky employed.  At the same time, we are under tremendous pressure to spend money we might not have for things we don’t really need.  Large political forces have led to a state of physical insecurity and distrust, in which we fear to board an airplane or to visit another country.  Violent crime seems to get closer to our lives and neighborhoods all the time.  Depression is nearly epidemic.  It seems that the only unstressed people are those who inhabit our graveyards.

Stress and anxiety may historically have enhanced our chances of defeating an attacking beast, but the saber-toothed tigers are long-gone.  Anxiety does not much help us to persuade a customer or resolve a relationship problem.  There is a better way.

Hundreds of times I have seen clients with overwhelming life issues overcome their devastating emotions with EFT, then go on to effectively handle the issues in their lives.  A case in point is “Lisa” who came to me for help in finding a job.  Lisa was a divorced mom of a teenage boy, out of work for seven months because she was laid off from her employment of seventeen years, about to lose her house, currently  engaged in the problem of getting her wheelchair-bound teenager (he recently had two knee surgeries) back and forth to school.  I knew Lisa was fairly intelligent from our conversations but, when she took a standard interest and aptitude test for employment, her results were the poorest I had ever seen.  She was so filled with anxiety about her (and her son’s) future and so stunned by her employer’s “betrayal” of her that she, literally, could not think straight.

Lisa and I did one session which addressed her anxiety about having no money (and being homeless) and her upset at being laid off.  At the end of the session, Lisa had no emotional charge on either issue.  When we met again, a week later, her situation had not changed but her attitude was now buoyant and positive.  Most important, her thinking had cleared and she was well on her way to dealing “head-on” and effectively with her problems.

A life without stressors is probably impossible.  But, with EFT, stress and anxiety are now optional.

I have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.

I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.

We wouldn't worry nearly as much about what others thought of us if we recognize how seldom they do.

Stress is the trash of modern life - we all generate it but if you don't dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.  ~Danzae Pace
