The first, and probably most important ‘power tool’ of TFT is what Dr. Callahan termed ‘psychological reversal’.  This week’s video in our series “The Power Tools of TFT” is on how to correct psychological reversals and remove blocks throughout our multi-dimensional being.

This simple correction was actually used in a study in 1988 by Dr. Robert Blaich where it was compared with cranial sacral manipulation and another complex chiropractic procedure and the rapid tapping for psychological reversal demonstrated a 45% improvement in reading speed and comprehension over the other methods tested.  It is a wonderful tool for any student.

It can be easily integrated into or added to any current energy modality or healing practice, and is free, brief and provides you with an explanation and detailed instructions for use, whether you are a practitioner or an individual who just wants to help themselves.

In this series you will gain a deeper understanding of the development of these tools along with a glimpse into the broad clinical applications for their use. You will see how these tools can be used to dramatically improve the quality of life for those struggling with chronic problems, promote the body’s natural healing process and reduce suffering from trauma and other daily stresses.

As TFT has grown and developed over the last 40 years, there have been numerous offshoots and versions of ‘tapping’. Due to the degree of testing and critical development of the original tapping modality, the many spinoffs have also been very effective as well. However, some of the early “power tools” of TFT have been left by the wayside.

Many who use or have tried one of the various methods of tapping aren’t even aware of these power tools which were very useful in facilitating healing 30-40 years ago and now are even more useful in our pandemic challenged society.

Since they can be easily integrated into or added to any current energy modality or healing practice, I am sharing a new video series, “The Power Tools of TFT”. Each one will be free, brief and give an explanation with detailed instructions for use, whether you are a practitioner or an individual who just wants to help themselves.

Watch the first video below, describing what the power tools are, then watch for a new video each week, demonstrating one of the “Power Tools” and how you can use it yourself.

Some were initially discovered during TFT’s infancy, as the Callahan Techniques®, and others more recently. Their application and development has been a continual process over the last 40 years. TFT is now helping not only emotional issues but many chronic health issues. BioField and HRV measures and even a simple voltmeter provide standard measures of efficacy. New research and thousands of cases worldwide provide evidence for the power of these remarkable tools.

You will gain a deeper understanding of the development of these tools along with a glimpse into the broad clinical applications for their use. You will see how these tools can be used to dramatically improve the quality of life for those struggling with chronic problems, promote the body’s natural healing process and reduce suffering from trauma and other daily stresses.

Over the last 20+ years we have been successfully eliminating the negative side-effects of necessary medications, without interfering with the efficacy of those medications.

I know from personal experience as I was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in January of 2001.  I have been cancer-free since March of 2003.  During my healing process, I took Interferon for about one year and we successfully eliminated the devastating side-effects of that medication throughout the course of my use.  We have had the same results with AIDS medication, chemotherapies, gamma globulin, and many other medications.  I know how much this can improve the quality of life of the person taking the medications in addition to improving compliance.

As the rollout of new medical interventions begins around the world, TFT may be useful in mitigating some of the adverse reactions listed by the CDC and manufacturers.  We have advanced level TFT practitioners around the world that can help others.  They can be found on our TFT Practitioners Directory,

For those wishing to be trained in this application of TFT, we will be addressing it specifically in our upcoming TFT Voice Technology (Optimal Health) and Advanced Level (New Era) classes in January.  I believe as a community we can help improve the quality of life of many 100’s of thousands of people this year.

Note:  The prerequisite for Optimal Health is TFT Diagnostic Level training and the prerequisite for New Era Advanced is Optimal Health.

I recently assisted our Kuwait trainer, Abeer AlOsaimi, to provide TFT algorithm level training for nearly 800 Lebanese trauma relief workers for the Nehna Haddak project supporting the survivors of the bombing in Beirut, Lebanon.

I am personally reviewing all of their case studies, 3 each, for their certification at the algorithm level.  If they only did their three cases, that would mean healing support and trauma relief for nearly 2400 people, all in the space of a month.  But they are all doing so much more for their communities.  They are continuing, day in and day out to provide relief to those suffering.

One of the psychologists, RANiA FOUAD AL SOUS, wrote to me about her results and others have been saying the same thing.  She gave me permission to share her comments which are below.  This is such a wonderful example of how we can all help begin healing our world and those in it.  Online training allows us to reach much greater numbers and locations.

Thank you for giving me a chance to write about my experience using TFT to help refugees.

I work as a psychologist in a psychosocial support program in the Palestinian camps in Beirut(Borj El Barajneh- Shatila) with both Palestinian and Syrian refugees.

I work with children and their caregivers on, grief, anxiety, ADHD, anger, violence, child labor, stress, PTSD,  neglect, and abuse. I started using TFT 28/8/2020 with children and adults after attending the TFT training with trainer Abeer AlOsaimi .

I was very surprised and happy to get good instant and after feedback. This is a level up in my work. 

 Children with fear start to smile, play and use the TFT sequence when they are home and had flashbacks or in stressful situations. Spiders are not that scary as they were after only one session, and still 20 days later.  A nine-year-old abused girl who works to support her family said:” I feel my head is lighter no pain in my heart and I like this feeling.” A depressed adult with medication said: ” it is magic, I never thought I can sleep deeply, this is my third tearless week”.  A sad mother with psychosomatic pain all over her body expressed gratefully instant feeling of calmness and rest, and still feeling the same after 10 days. An angry 11 years old boy asked to take the drawing with him home so he can color it with his brother who used to hate and abuse out of jealousy. Children learn the sequences very quickly and welling to do it gladly as they experienced the relief in and after the session. 

Only one month of using TFT to help refugees at work, family at home and friends when they ask for some advice, and always getting great feedback each time.

I would thank you all for giving us this chance to start our healing process after Beirut explosion, and to be able to help the refugees in their healing process too. 

Best Regards, 

Clinical psychologist

The blocking of the healing process can be caused by simple things that we all have around the house.  Something as simple as laundry detergent or cleaning products.

I know this from personal experience.  In 2001 I was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (NHL).  I have been cancer free since March of 2003, with no recurrence in that time.  I did no chemo or radiation or surgery.

One of the most important things Roger and I learned while treating me was the possible role of toxins and how their presence can not only block healing but aggravate the disease state.  We found that when the cancer tumors had a positive polarity (based on the work of Harold Saxton Burr, Blueprint for Immortality) the tumors would grow but when we could keep them in negative polarity they would shrink and die.  We could measure this polarity with a simple voltmeter, which confirmed what we could identify with TFT Voice Technology testing.

There is not a day that goes by where I am not extremely grateful for my late husband, Dr. Roger Callahan’s, gift to the world, Thought Field Therapy (TFT).  TFT has been providing a healing tool to the masses for over four decades.  It is evidenced-based yet simple and safe to self-apply.

TFT has been successfully applying and using tools that were thought not possible in the past but are now becoming necessary to function in today’s world:

  • Curing fears and phobias
  • Eliminating blocks to healing and self-sabotage
  • Identifying and neutralizing toxins
  • Diagnosing and treating remotely or non-locally

These concepts and tools that Roger discovered and applied through TFT over the last 40 years were way ahead of their time.

His first discovery, that of psychological reversal, was denied by many even up to 10 years ago.  But that inner voice of self-sabotage and negative self-talk that we all have, has been shown to be the biggest obstacle to our success in life.  The ability to clearly identify what is blocking us and how to eliminate those blocks can make a significant difference in our health and the quality of our lives.

When he first “cured” a phobia the profession said “you can’t cure phobias” and the word ‘cure’ wasn’t even found in the psychological dictionary.  It is common practice today.

His understanding and teachings on the importance of the effect of toxins on our health were ridiculed.  Others even said, “only TFT has toxins”.  Now we are all learning how very important it is to be able to identify and neutralize the toxins that are all-pervasive in our environment.

We are now seeing yet another concept and tool that Roger created and used 40 years ago. It is becoming a necessity in today’s challenging and rapidly changing world to be able to offer treatment over the phone or on the internet.  He developed remote diagnosing and treating, TFT Voice Technology when the APA was saying it can’t be done.  Now professional associations are trying to show us all how to work remotely and non-locally.  We began teaching TFT Voice Technology to others in 1994.  TFT has been developed hand in hand with that concept and approach for helping others.

All levels of TFT, algorithm, diagnostic, voice technology and our newest advanced vibrational tuning, can be easily applied in individual, face-to-face sessions, or a variety of online and non-local options as individual or group events.

Training in all levels is available around the world in both live, in-person, events and on various online platforms from recorded to live.  Click here to learn about one of these options.  TFT can become a useful support tool to any practice due to the ease of learning and application remotely.

Those suffering with chronic pain are facing even more challenges during this world-wide health pandemic.  Isolation, limited pharmacy and medical services and supplies, and constant fear and anxiety are leading to increased suffering.

“To see exactly how the pandemic is impacting pain care, the U.S. Pain Foundation went right to the source, surveying 664 individuals across the country living with chronic pain. Their findings, based on early April 2020 data, show that:

  • 77.4% are facing barriers to treatment
  • 63.8% are experiencing increased pain
  • 69.7% consider themselves to be at high risk for serious COVID-19.

“Because of their risk factors, this population of patients must limit contact,” said CEO Nicole Hemmenway, in a press release. “But they also live with painful conditions that require consistent medical care in order for them to function. It’s a terrible catch-22.” PPM  Practical Pain Management. Read more

Last Saturday I led my monthly interactive webinar.  Our topic was Releasing Stress and Anxiety in Today’s World.  Prior to the class I received so many requests on how to tap for the fear of the Coronavirus, and how to boost our immune systems, that I devoted the entire hour on tapping sequences specific to this very timely topic.

I also realized the importance of sharing these tools with the millions of people around the world struggling to maintain balance within this unbalanced environment.

So, yesterday, I did a YouTube video teaching the tapping sequences to remove fear and maintain peace and calm within ourselves.

Please share it with all you know and love.  And, for those wanting additional tapping tools for supporting their immune system and well-being, we have made last Saturday’s class as an instant download for others, not regular class participants.

Last week I posted an article on our blog site that had appeared in Lynn McTaggart’s What Doctors Don’t Tell You (WDDTY). It quoted a recent study showing that just two hours per week in nature, the forest or beach, provided increased health and well-being. The alpha waves in nature lead to a more balanced brain wave pattern, facilitating whole brain synchrony and a more meditative state of being.

Meditation is known to reduce stress and increase mental and physical states of well-being. The vibrational frequency of our surroundings has a profound effect on our emotional state and our ability to facilitate healing. Read more

Our upcoming Personal Healing Retreat in Costa Rica will be launching one of the first programs teaching Energy Medicine Yoga (EMYoga).

Caroline Avant, who taught and shared yoga with us at our past Synchronicity and Wintergreen Resort Well-Being Retreats, has completed her education/certification in the new Energy Medicine Yoga and will be joining us in Costa Rica.

Meet Caroline and discover how EMYoga can help us heal.
