TFT and Horses

While visiting a friend’s farm recently, the farmer’s daughter shared with me the story of her 7-year-old mare, who was extremely fearful of people—and especially hostile to men. The horse had been mistreated by its previous male owner. By now, it needed veterinary treatment to trim its hooves—which were overgrown and causing the horse extreme discomfort.

Unfortunately, the local veterinarian is a man and couldn’t get near the horse, even to examine it. Not wishing her mare to be sedated, the farmer’s daughter shared with me her dilemma.

Could TFT help calm this anxious horse, I wondered?

I explained briefly about TFT, then asked the daughter to stroke the horse’s forehead, and tap gently under its eye. I then asked her to tap behind the horses foreleg (as close to where I imagined the arm point would be), then tap the horse’s chest—as close to the collarbone as she could get.

Since it was impossible for me—a man—to get near the horse initially, I asked the daughter to tap out the algorithm instead. As she tapped away to my instructions, I could see the horse calming down from a distance. I entered the field and slowly walked to the animal, repeating the algorithm where the daughter left off.

In just a few minutes, the mare was almost asleep.

I asked the farmer’s daughter to walk away and leave the field. By then, she was extremely surprised to find the horse calm, receptive and unaffected by her departure—particularly when the mare had not been bridled in any way, nor had I used any treats.

Later, as I walked about the field, the horse followed me, nudging me in the back—her fear of people (and men, in particular) completely resolved. Even another male visitor to the farm that afternoon couldn’t change the anxiety-free state of the mare.

Of course, the veterinarian was able to treat her hooves with ease. But getting her to hum a tune while tapping was a different matter entirely! —Brian Ewart as told to Ian Graham

Love Pain put to the test.. here’s one of our customer’s story:

I bought the Love Pain DVD as my 20 year old son was absolutely distraught after his girlfriend broke it off the other day.

He was miserable and sobbing and even said he felt like he was ill.

I have been using EFT a lot and all my children know it but I thought there might be something a little less cumbersome, so I decided to purchase the TFT Love Pain DVD.

While the DVD was downloading I opened the e-book that came with it and had him sit with me while I instructed him with the tapping points.

He started out at a 10 and by the time he had gotten to the under arm point he had already felt the intensity of his grief fade.  When we were done with the protocol he was quite amazed and said “How does this stuff work?”

It had gone down to a 5.  The next round we did included the gamut and it went to a 3, and the next round with the gamut and ending with the eye roll and it went to a 1 or 2.

He felt like he was cheating so I explained that it was not cheating, what it was doing was actually clearing the intense emotions to enable him to think and operate from a more rational perspective.

Once the DVD had downloaded and he made it bigger we watched it together.  At the end he was still feeling some of the pain – I guess different aspects were coming up – so we did the protocol a few more times which bought his pain down to about a 2, having started at about a 10 – it was to do with just wanting to be with her.  He was still a bit weepy when he went to bed and I went off to bed and found that I was feeling very tearful and sad for him, so I did the protocol a few times and it just melted away.

He has continued to use the tapping and I am really pleased and relieved to say that he is feeling enormous relief.  He still feels the sadness  a bit but it is not the gut/heart wrenching sadness that he was experiencing on Sunday, which is when she broke it off.

So, a great big hug and a thank you to Roger Callahan and I guess one cannot forget accolades to ‘God’, ‘The Universe’, whatever it is that makes the sun shine and the trees grow.
