Tapping Into Emotional Freedom from the Effects of Cancer: Part I

One of the current theories on the cause of cancer (Hamer) is that most cancers are caused by severe psychological trauma such as the death of a spouse or loved one. According to Dr. Hamer’s theory, it typically takes about a year before the developing cancer is identified.

My discovery and development of Thought Field Therapy® led to the loss of my successful psychological practice; I was in my mid-fifties at the time. This was due to the fact that I healed my current clients within a few weeks using the new powerful and rapid procedures (Callahan Techniques) I had been developing.

My wife at the time pleaded with me to give up this strange therapy I was doing. However, since I was making revolutionary discoveries in psychology, and I was successfully and rapidly curing my clients, without the need for their suffering during treatment and nothing could deter me from this mission.

My response to this request was a firm NO added by “I will go back to working on a trash truck (as I did in graduate school) before I go back to the ineffective procedures I used before my tapping discoveries.”

I did not go back to the trash truck but my income took a beating and I did have to close my office until I found solutions to my economic problem.

My previous wife left me to marry a very wealthy man. By this time, I was able to help most of my clients who suffered from terrible love pain; but I was not able to help myself. I was a complex case and the procedures I had developed up to that point did not ease my love pain and grief. It was very intense and endured for years until I found further development in my tapping protocols and the important the role of toxins in complex problems. I believe my prolonged love pain and grief was the cause of my cancer.

Whether you agree with Dr. Hamer’s theory of causation or not, anyone who develops cancer is at least severely traumatized by the shocking diagnosis. Typically, TFT is able to quickly eliminate all traces of both traumas; i.e., the originating trauma, if present, from years earlier and the trauma of receiving the diagnosis of cancer.

Tapping away the negative emotions from trauma can reduce stress, and help create a clear and calm presence in the face of this much feared and dreaded disease.

A New Theory:
In subsequent posts I will discuss my “Electric Theory of Cancer” and delve into the many ways that TFT can help improve the quality of life of a person with cancer.

As we enter February and approach Valentine’s Day many of us turn our thoughts to our love relationships. Some of us are grateful for the love of our lives, while many others are asking themselves – Why do I always get a loser? – or – How can I find that special person and not sabotage it?

Amouraphobia is at the root of many of the troubles with our love life. It is caused by the very severe personal trauma that virtually everyone one of us has suffered – at one time or another in our lives, loss of a lover. I call this horrible trauma LOVE PAIN. Many may joke about this pain but underneath the humor seethes remnants of the past suffering and terrible LOVE PAIN.

Severe love pain is supposed to only happen to adolescents. Because they are more vulnerable and open to intense romantic love (Romeo and Juliet were adolescents) they do suffer to a greater degree than their elders.

My first book, IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU was about amouraphobia and its manifold effects, especially it’s potential for destroying the chance for a happy and fulfilling romantic life – even if you happen to have the ideal partner.

As a result of my theory, I found that those who had suffered severe love pain, in the past, often became severe amouraphobes. I then discovered a very effective treatment for amouraphobia and the severe trauma from the past love loss. It is quite possible, if you do these self-help procedures, you will notice it is easier to give, communicate, and receive romantic love, perhaps better than you have since you were very young.

Many people believe that the most common phobias are fear of public speaking or fear of death. Perhaps not? Based on my decades of experience and clinical practice, I believe the most common fear is, fear of intense romantic love, amouraphobia. I did considerable clinical research on amouraphobia and I found that it caused many problems and was much more common than we realized.

When my book, IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU, first came out, it received much media attention. However, at that time, while it was an intriguing topic, I had not yet discovered a treatment for it. Even so, US magazine did a full story on it, Phil Donahue devoted a whole show to the concept and the media devoured it.

Now, however, I understand the phenomenon of amouraphobia, what causes it and the problems it causes in our lives, robbing many of a satisfying and fulfilling romantic relationship.

Surprisingly enough, the same treatment that is needed to relieve love pain is the very same treatment we use on severe traumas. The treatment needed to eliminate the amouraphobia is our common phobia treatment, best used after using the trauma treatment to treat past love pain and grief.

If you miss the free teleclass, we provide free Trauma Self-Help from our web site . This help is available in English, Spanish and a video in Chinese. We will be adding new languages soon. This is the very same, powerful treatment we have used in our trauma relief missions in Rwanda, Kosovo, New Orleans, Uganda and to help our returning veterans.
