EFT is a great way to release a phobia gently and effectively. Short for Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT involves the stimulation of easy-to-reach acupressure points whilst repeating a releasing phrase. EFT can be self-applied, or you can ask a practitioner to apply it for you. It is best performed in the waking state, where you are fully awake, and you remain conscious at all times. Like any other healing modality, EFT sometimes results in a gentle release, such as tears, but this soon goes away, and you are left with feelings of peace and calm.
Let me illustrate with the case of “Melinda”, who has graciously agreed for me to write about her case. Melinda had one session, lasting just one hour, where we dealt with her fear of dentists. She was not only afraid of dentists, but she was also afraid of needles. However, she had a trip scheduled to go to the dentist for some extensive dental work which also involved the use of needles. These fears were at a 10 on a scale of 10-0 at the beginning of the session.
I tapped (did the EFT acupressure) on myself as Melinda mirrored my tapping, and we used many phrases, including “Even though I have this fear of needles, I deeply love and accept myself”. We worked on incidents such as the last time Melinda visited the dentist, moving all the way forward to this forthcoming dentist visit. In less than an hour, the fear of both dentists and needles was a zero or thereabouts. Just in case we had unwittingly left any aspects untreated, I gave Melinda a simple EFT tapping homework to use, should the need arise.
I next saw Melinda with her mother, who reported being amazed that Melinda had actually been saying to everyone how much she looked forward to seeing the dentist! The dental work is making good progress, and Melinda is well on her way to a perfect smile – inside and out.
EFT for phobia release worked beautifully and very quickly for Melinda. If you are interested in what EFT can do for you, you can download a free EFT guide from many online resources and learn the basics for yourself. Or you can dive right in and work with an EFT practitioner or attend a workshop near you. And soon, you can find that the phobia has become a thing of the past.
