The panic key

Solving the Mystery; By Suzanne Connolly, TFT-Dx

At a recent Conference on Panic Attacks, a speaker presented as a fact, that panic attacks do not have their origin in past trauma.

Speaker after speaker asserted that there is currently no cure for Panic Attack Disorder.

While there are undoubtedly cases where this is true, I find that in most cases this upset in the sympathetic nervous system is rooted in past trauma and of course, with Thought Field Therapy is curable.

The following case study offers just one example.

Yolanda’s panic attacks were keeping her from her job as head of housekeeping at a nearby resort, and from her second job of babysitting her friend’s children, and from participating in life in general. She had been referred by her Physician and I began taking a history in an effort to find some specific sources of anxiety to address.

Being around small children seemed to precipitate the majority of Yolanda’s recent panic attacks. Being home alone at night, being around knives, seeing young girls at the resort where she worked, and driving at night seemed to trigger others.

The panic attacks began immediately after Yolanda had seen a news story on television where two young girls had been kidnapped and murdered. A search party had found the girls’ bodies lying in a field. The murder weapon had been a knife.

Before seeing the news story Yolanda had experienced only two panic attacks. Once while in Mexico, visiting her native village, she and her husband had taken a long drive to a forested area. It was nightfall when they finally arrived and Yolanda could not get out of the car to examine the forest.

A car had happened to be following them; Yolanda felt like she was fighting for her life as she screamed until her husband turned around and drove back to their village. She remembers her pounding heart and the feeling of unmistakable danger.

On another occasion, while visiting her mother at her families’ ranch in Mexico, her mother’s big dog attacked a neighbor’s small dog. Again: the pounding heart, the absolute terror.

Yolanda remembers nothing of her childhood before the age of nine. Her first memory is a memory of being on a bus with her mother and younger brother headed to California. She remembers everything about California: living a year with her aunt, the trips to the beach, getting toys, cloths, and attention. Everything seemed good and peaceful and normal. Yolanda tells of her year in California as if it were a story from a fairy tale.

After she and her mother and her younger brother returned to Mexico, it was different. Yolanda’s father had never accepted her. Her mother told her it was because he didn’t like girls. (But later, a younger sister was born and the younger girl was treated, Yolanda says, like a princess.)

Her three older brothers were allowed to treat Yolanda harshly. She was not allowed to eat with the family and had to go outside when everyone else ate. She would sit on the roof and look at the stars, or sometimes; she would visit the homes of neighbors who would give her something to eat. When the family was finished eating, Yolanda’s mother would make her a small tortilla filled with leftovers.

Yolanda would then clean up and do the dishes. Later Yolanda was required to cook the dinner as well. But still she would be banished from the home while the family ate. Often her brothers would throw the family cat on her food and play other pranks. Yolanda says she didn’t think anything was unusual at the time; “It was just the way it was.”

I ask Yolanda about a scar that runs up her arm. She says that it happened when she was about eighteen months old. Her mother has told her that her brothers accidentally cut her with a knife. Her mother had reportedly heard Yolanda yelling and when she found Yolanda, there was blood running down her arm.

Yolanda and I wonder aloud if this could be related to the anxiety round knives that appeared after she watched the tragic news story on the television. Read more

EFT Tapping Therapy

Many individuals attend our TFT Boot Camps, from all walks of life, either for personal or professional use. Often, those with a currently existing practice, have questions about how they can successfully integrate TFT into their existing practice. So, whenever we receive a case study from someone who has quickly and successfully done this, we like to share it with others.

Jacqueline Smilie is a long-time alternative health care practitioner skilled in EEG, NAET, EFT and others. When she came upon TFT, she was very excited about her results and came to a TFT Boot Camp. The following is an example of how she has integrated her new skills into her current practice.

In fact, she is so excited about her results with TFT and how empowering it is for her clients, she is hosting our January 2012 Boot Camp, in Redlands, CA, just to help make it convenient for her colleagues and clients. Read more

tft-fear Meridian Tapping

BY DR. DARIAH MORGAN,
TFT-dx, TFT-Adv

I returned home on the afternoon of Thursday, September 24 and was greeted by the familiar red flash of my voice mail recorder.

“This is Jane Blume, Dariah… I did it, Dariah, I went over the edge! It was a struggle, a real struggle, because I had to press the guide rope with my nondominant hand, but I did it! I actually stepped off a 16 story building and rappelled down the side!”

Jane is a KUNM radio programmer in Albuquerque, NM whom my husband, Bruce, and I met during a TFT workshop that we did in Albuquerque in August. She is 66 years young, a recent grandmother, owner of Desert Sky Communications and became a widow two years ago after 44 years of marriage. “Well, do I curl up in a corner in a fetal position, or do I go out and embrace life?”, she asked herself at that time.

Rappelling down the side of a 230 foot building in downtown Albuquerque to raise money for Special Olympics New Mexico looked like embracing life to Jane, so she became the first media personality to sign up for the challenge, entitled “Over the Edge”.

Shortly after making her commitment, she called me for some TFT assistance. After two brief phone consultations, Jane was ready for the big day.

One of only two women to rappel, she had this to say at the end of her phone message….

”I have been featured on the news here…my picture (there were actually two) will be on the front page of the metro section of the Albuquerque Journal, people felt inspired, I feel inspired! I used the TFT techniques you taught me for an hour before stepping off the building! I am grateful for your help! You helped me with my intention to live fearlessly! I could not have done this without you! Thank you!”

There is a popular inspirational plaque that asks, “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?” Perhaps it should read, “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could conquer your fears and accomplish things no one, including yourself, ever thought possible?”

TFT opens the door of living fearlessly to all of us!

The Energy Psychology Modality That Heals

by Lorraine Blum, L.C.S.W, MS.C, NBCCH, RM, TFT DX

Energy Medicine has been around a very long time. Reiki, an Energy Modality first discovered in Japan thousands of years ago and TFT Dx is a more recent Energy Modality used here in the United States to heal those suffering from Health Disorders… and it’s being applied in many other countries like Egypt, India, and China. In fact, Energy Psychology is now being studied in prestigious schools such as the University of Florida. Recently there were grants given to conservative settings such as Hospice in South Florida to hire these healers.

Insurance companies are beginning to look at this kind of treatment for possible coverage in the future. Where hospitals laughed at Reiki Masters and any kind of Energy medicine, they are now welcoming them.

Thought Field Therapy Diagnosis was started by Roger Callahan PHD

Anything is possible with Energy Psychology and the knowledge of Orthomolecular Medicine, especially when using Spiritual Law.

Of course it it wise and necessary to include your personal Physician in this type of treatment procedure as he knows the most about your physical condition.

The 37th Annual International Conference on Orthomolecular Medicine in Canada had patient’s previously severely mentally ill reporting full recovery. The successful treatment of Schizophrenia after all the tests are completed and the allergies eliminated is primarily Nutrition and Energy Psychology.

TFT Dx is incredibly effective in the Art of Healing.

Roger Callahan, a Clinical Psychologist focused on Mental Health. Through his research and testing he discovered some simple new procedures he demonstrated on televisions while treating those around the world for Anxiety, Depression, Addictions, Trauma and other disorders. This lead to development of a casual diagnostic process, where he could quickly determine a specific tapping sequence, now known as commonly used algorithms.

It was his invitation in 1994 to Florida State University to participate in the search for a cure for PTSD along with other therapies such as EMDR and VK/D a form of NLP that the descriptive name came about of Thought Field Therapy.

Energy therapies much like Acupuncture is so fast and seemingly lasting it is truly hard to believe.

We just received a report from a TFT practitioner on the front lines that they are having amazing successes with TFT and helping with stress reduction with the troops.

He requested 500 wallet sized trauma relief cards and other easily transported support materials.  Dr. Roger and Joanne Callahan sent them out immediately, so pleased to be able to support our troops with these simple self-help procedures.  He requested materials that he could use for rapid treatments and self help tools for our troops serving in harms way. Will keep everyone updated…. Caroline Sakai, PhD, TFTdx, VT

Ildiko Scurr, TFT-Dx Shares How TFT is Used For Trauma

Terry Shares His TFT Experience With Accident Trauma Treatment

[E]
By David Hanson, DEH, TFT-Dx

Ruby and Jack (not their real names) had been married for 63 years. They were high school sweethearts, married, raised a family, and weathered all the storms of their lives together.

Ruby was now alone. Jack had passed away in his sleep almost a year before her nephew, Bob, brought her to my office at the funeral home.

Bob was a funeral home employee working in the sales department. He had seen me work many times with patrons of our establishment in helping them past the grief that was paralyzing their lives. He had seen me direct others through “that tapping therapy you do” and wondered if I could help his aunt who – almost a year after losing her beloved husband – still cried at the mention of his name.

Ruby was a plump little woman whose face was kind and care-worn. But just talking about her deceased mate brought up a level of emotional discomfort that was impossible to miss.

Bob was concerned that her grief was so significant that it was beginning to impact her health and functioning.

After talking with her for a very short time, I took her HRV. Her SDNN was only 23. Not a very good score. Then, we started the treatment. I asked her to rate the level of her emotional discomfort. Even if she had not said so, the look on her face when I moved her into that thought field showed she was a 10. The tears welled in her eyes and her face contorted in an attempt to stifle her impulse to cry.

I applied the TFT treatment. In just seconds there was an improvement – a dramatic improvement. The tears dried up, her face relaxed and both her nephew and I noticed a new countenance settle over her. Even she looked surprised.

“What did you just do?” she asked me. I didn’t answer her question.

Rather, I asked, “How is the feeling now when you think of Jack? Is it better, worse, or the same?”

A slight smile crept across her face and she said, “I’m almost afraid to say this, but I actually feel sort of happy and lighter somehow.” Her nephew looked at me out of the corner of his eye with a disbelieving look. He was still skeptical. Read more
