2 Minutes of EFT Took Away 40 Years of Fear

Carol, EFT has truly changed my life and I can’t thank you enough for opening my eyes to this wonderful tool and can’t wait to see how else it can improve my life. 

I have always been TERRIFIED of flying.  Onboard a plane, I shake and tremble and pray and wait for the worst to happen.  After deboarding, I have to sit and wait for my legs to stop trembling.  I’ve tried hypnotism, took a course online, tried having a drink, taking a pill…never felt anything but terror.  If you gave me free tickets to Hawaii, I would give them back to you as I wouldn’t even consider flying that far away. 

On the webinar series, I asked if EFT would help.  I was getting on a plane the next morning and already feeling terrified.  It was suggested that I do the tapping that night for ten or fifteen minutes and I tried to do that.  I must admit, I didn’t believe it would help and only “tapped” for about two or three minutes.  I couldn’t focus on it as I hadn’t packed yet.  I just tapped that I want to be like all the other passengers who don’t feel that fear. 

The next morning, I woke up calm, which was strange.  I kept that calm feeling all morning.  I only felt panic for one moment as I closed the front door to leave, worried that I had forgotten body soap, wondering what else I forgot.  I felt the terror well up, and mentioned to my husband who said, don’t worry, we’ll buy some.  I envisioned myself going to Walgreens and getting soap and felt so calm.  Could it be that I wasn’t worried about flying as much as being completely prepared and packed?   

I don’t know why I was so calm.  I laughed and slept and actually ENJOYED the flight.  I looked around and I was like everyone else on the plane.  Your suggestions and this two minute tapping gave me a peace I can’t even explain.  I didn’t tap before the flight home, because I knew I would never be afraid to fly on a plane again.   

You have opened up the world to me…I have never before been able to dream of traveling, why would I want to go anywhere that included flying.  I now dream of Australia, New Zealand, I can go anywhere, thanks to EFT. 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you…you and EFT have changed my life.
