“You have cancer for the second time,” my doctor said. I simply stared into space and wondered how this could be happening to me again. I’d received a diagnosis of Breast Cancer, some 8 years since my first cancer diagnosis of Malignant Melanoma. At 36, the mother of a 4 year old, I simply wanted to know if I’d survive.
My journey into incredible healing began right then, in that room. I began research into healing modalities and made some significant changes in my life. Self care became a priority, so I changed my diet and explored my spirituality more deeply. Then I made the amazing discovery of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). It seemed such a simple method, I found myself wondering – can EFT really work?
Not knowing how to tackle such a huge health issue as cancer, I decided to try a simple EFT ‘tapping’ technique for my sinus problem. I was totally amazed when the problem disappeared after just two sessions. Of course, now my interest was peaked and I discovered some amazing EFT facts:
· EFT has been shown to eliminate negative emotions about an event, even many years later
· Researchers in the Philippines found that EFT produced a 72% reduction in depression after just four sessions
· Harvard Medical School research showed that EFT reduces blood flow to the Amygdala in the brain, producing more endorphins and calmer feelings overall. EFT is highly effective for reducing stress and general anxiety
Risk factors for serious illnesses are increased by stress, and some say that emotional distress from the past is a contributing factor. I therefore decided to seek the help of an EFT professional to deal with these deep rooted feelings. The change in me was profound after just one EFT session. I was finally able to release issues from my childhood and early adult life, I felt so much lighter!
EFT helps a person to heal from serious illness by addressing deeper emotional issues, combined with transforming negative feelings about the experience now. Fear and anger feelings are dramatically reduced, allowing the person space for real healing on many levels.
My experience with EFT was so profound, I decided to become an EFT practitioner. Today, I help clients with a range of issues, including serious illnesses, social anxiety, depression, stress, addictions and more. I run a local cancer support group and volunteer my EFT services to other charitable groups. I am so very grateful to be healthy now, in mind, body and spirit.
