E.F.T. (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Heals a Vietnam War Veteran in a Matter of Hours!
EFT. (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a “revolutionary new healing aid” according to Essex based E.F.T. practitioner, Linda Anderson. Linda goes on to quote EFT founder Gary Craig; “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” This version of acupuncture without needles depends on tapping the end points of the Energy Meridians, a system first discovered by Chinese Medicine more than 5,000 years ago! Whilst tapping it is necessary to speak of and mentally tune into the causative uncomfortable or disruptive event. The results appear to be truly impressive!
She tells us how in 1994, EFT founder Gary Craig and his associate Adrienne Fowlie were invited by the U.S. Veterans’ Administration in Los Angeles to spend six days using Craig’s new therapy to help treat a group of veterans from the Vietnam War. These men were still suffering from the traumas they had experienced more than twenty years previously.
“Rich” had served as a warrant officer in Cambodia. He had been released from the service in 1975 and had undergone treatment for his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder since 1978. His symptoms included a severe height phobia which had been induced largely by the 50 parachute jumps he had made whilst on active duty. As a result he was afraid to use elevators and would often feel uncomfortable on reaching the second floor of the local shopping mall. Remarkably his phobia disappeared after one fifteen-minute tapping session with Gary Craig. Craig made a video recording of this work with the 'Vets'. The film shows “Rich” standing on top of the Administration building and waving over the fire escape to his friends below without feeling a hint of his old fear. A truly remarkable outcome which had not been matched by his sixteen years of treatment. Moreover, a little bit more work reduced his intrusive war time memories of entering villages literally littered with bodies to negligible proportions and his previous insomnia cleared up too! The interesting element here was, “Rich” treated himself. Yes, he was taught how to use “EFT” and despite his scepticism tapped on his fearsome memories until they all disappeared. What’s more, Gary Craig reassured the audience that such remarkable cures were usually permanent. In “Rich’s” case they checked back two months later and all was still well. He knew that if anything should resurface he now had in his possession “an awesome tool” which he could use to heal himself without recourse to any intrusive medication. EFT is easy to use and easy to learn. Anyone can get a result with it after a short course of instruction!
Linda Anderson heard about this remarkable therapy, first developed in the USA, and was eager to learn more. She is now a qualified EFT therapist and offers help like this in Saffron Walden, Essex, U.K. EFT has been used to startling effect on a very wide range of issues such as fears, phobias, anger, grief, anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, PTSD, physical pains, allergies, addictions and cravings, worry, guilt and all limiting emotions in sports, business and the performing arts. Its true potential is only just beginning to be explored. She echoes Gary Craig when he says “We are at the ground floor of a healing high-rise” and encourages people to “Try it on everything” - within the bounds of common sense of course!
