Extreme Loss Tapping or EFT

Updated on July 30, 2013

EFT Tapping for Grief and Extreme Loss

EFT Tapping for Grief and Extreme Loss or Tapping known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique, would have helped me so much in the many years I was a nurse when there were so many times I dealt with people who were struggling with unresolved Extreme Loss and Grief and I could have given them relief if only I had known Tapping.

I use Tapping for myself, family and friends and we benefit from the Emotional Freedom we gain from things like, Grief and Extreme Loss which pervade every part of our body, as is now shown by Molecular Biology. It causes things like PTSD, weight gain, anxiety and a host of other horrible things. If you want to live a more fulfilled life I hope you look into how you can be helped maybe financially by clearing your blocks to success, so don't be afraid to give it a try and you may be very surprised like a lot of the people of Sandy Hook were. It only takes two fingers, some focus and about ten minutes a day.

Loss and Grief Tapping With Brad Yates - Calm and Understanding at This Time.

I found what I had needed for a long time somebody who could help me get over the feelings that made me just want to sit in dark room and never emerge, the world should just go away. my loss would never be healed or so I thought.

Enter Brad Yates, with his calm and gentle Tapping routine that helped me find a solution to the anguish I had been experiencing from my loss. It only took me a couple of rounds to get the intensity of the situation down to an acceptable level and within a couple of days I could smile again and by the end of the week I could visit the memories with fondness and even managed a smile at those memories.

It didn't take away the situation it took away the pain, all the "what if's" and allowed me to heal my intense hurt and anguish. I guess there will be times when I may fall back into my old ways but I'll just Tap along with Brad, and I'll know that in a few rounds I'll be back to myself again. There may however never again be this situation but if there is I'm ready to tackle it head on and rid myself of any left over memories that need a helping hand to be cleared, thank you Brad.

Emotional Freedom Technique

Tapping or EFT

Since Gary Craig started his Emotional Freedom Technique also known as Tapping and EFT there have been a lot of other practitioners who have made adjustments to this initial technique utilising all aspects of it. One of these is Dr. Patricia Carrington who devised the choices method of EFT. She is a brilliant teacher and reading her books is so fulfilling with her oh so easy explanations and the case studies she gives to show real have problems and get rid of them using choices in the way you say things so you get the most benefit from your Tapping rounds without a great deal of wasted energy nor time.

Another great newer technique that goes even deeper for those stubborn blocks that don't normally want to be shifted is Matrix Reimprinting. Blocks that may be buried deep in your past that hold you trapped in your past can be realeased as you can finally access them and this rids you of those painful memories allowing your emotional and physical wellbeing to improve and heal. It uses EFT along with you clearing those memories and the combination is remarkable.

Getting Rid of The Pain of Trauma of All Kinds - Tapping Away Some of the Hurt

On this video Robert Smith goes into why Faster EFT is different to the Traditional EFT. He has a very different approach and it's these different approaches that allow EFT to evolve and become even more healing and helpful to each user in a different way.

Robert will explain to you how he feels things affect you and cause you to have emotions and how those emotions trigger you to have the reactions to all sorts of traumas that cause pain in your life but more than that he will help you to understand how to release them.

Every one gets something different out of each type of EFT and this gives you another view to see if it would work better for you in your particular circumstance so go and look at the video and see what you think. I do hope you enjoy it.

Robert Smith took EFT and transformed it and I'm amazed at how it works.

Finding The Way to Real Tapping Releases - Releasing Everything With EFT

Dawson Church shows you some of the Research evidence that shows not only does EFT but it's ways of working and how it clears your whole system so watch this short video and learn a wonderful technique to help you clean up and clear out all the things you have accumulated but no longer want in your life.

Molecular Biology has shown that every cell in your body holds onto trauma no matter how small and simple it is and it pervades the cell until you take some action to release it from your body and Tapping, EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique has been scientifically shown to release all those traumas if you use it on a regular basis and slowly go through whatever it is that has traumatised you in the past.

The Bible passage that says " the sins of the father are visited on the sons" has now been proven to be true but not in quite the same context as it may have meant such a long time ago, now it can be turned on it's head and gotten rid of not only by sons but mothers, daughters, friends and relatives alike and can be cleared or cleansed with this easy little technique so why not give it a go?

Tapping Away The Trauma

Peace At Last

EFT or Emotional Freedom aka Tapping technique is so powerful that the Veteran's Affairs Department in the U S of A took a group of about twenty Vietnam Vets who had intractable PTSD and hadn't responded to any other form of treatment and were aggressive, violent, couldn't sleep and had any manner of problems that had been treated to all the available medications, shock therapy and surgery to no avail. They were given Tapping purely as an experiment and there was something like an 80% response rate. These Vets could finally come to terms with the horror they had been exposed to and live some sort of normal life, and since then it has been used on other Vets, imagine then what it could do for you and your situation. Just simply using your fingers to tap away all that emotional baggage sitting in your head.

If you have profound trauma like sexual abuse or abortion, maybe like me you lived in a totally controlled environment with your life being threatened on a regular basis and on the surface everything looked so rosy, well then like me you need to get a qualified practitioner to help

as these are really traumatising events and you need somebody who can support you as you finally let go of the pain, suffering, fear and shame. This is truly an uplifting moment and it needs the help of somebody who actually cares about you after the euphoria has subsided and you wonder who you really are as these generally take at least a few sessions to get to a level where you could think of doing it on your own.

If you live in the UK you can go here to select an EFT Practitioner to help you - United Kingdom

If any of these things have been part of your life and you would like to get calm and centered and be able to live the best life you can always look up an EFT Practitioner and get them to help if you don't think you can manage it on your own even though it is a very easy technique to use and benefit from. There are times when we just need the guidance an EFT Practitioner can give us to open up to ourselves and get rid of the fear, anxiety, hurt, humiliation and the anger that is slowly destroying us, Ahh the freedom we can give to ourselves.

For those that live in Australia like me, "Down Under, here is a list of EFT Practitioners but being the kind souls we are you will find a whole lot of worldwide Practitioners scattered in amongst or own Oz ones.

      @anonymous: Hi gompie68, thanks for your visit and kind comment I really appreciate it. The other great thing about EFT is that mainstream doctors are actually seeing it's benefits and starting to use it. We'll have to watch out as they will want to find a way to charge for something that's freely available to anybody who wants to use this easy, quick technique.

      Great lens everyday I'm amazed at the potential of EFT. And I love the fact that you can do it yourself.

      @norma-holt: Hi skiesgreen, thank you for visiting and commenting it's much appreciated. many Spiritual people use Tapping and indeed many of the people who are EFT practitioners believe in God, Supreme Being, Universe and all other Spiritual pursuits. It's really quite non-denominational as it's a technique not a religion and it's based on demonstrable science so it doesn't matter whether you're extremely Spiritual or the greatest heathen on earth it will work by simply Tapping the accupressure points on your body. I do hope you try it one day and see it's "magic".

      Interesting as I have never heard of this before. As a spiritual person there is a different technique for getting over loss for me. Good lens.

      @kimadagem: Thank you so much I'll go do that in just a moment. It's amazing sometimes how things just don't register and I've always spelled it with a "g" so I didn't even notice it didn't have one I suppose, I really appreciate your help.

    • profile image


      7 years ago

      Maureen, I think the reason your intro link doesn't work is because of the spelling. I did a search and tried "" (without the "g") and it came up fine. I think if you change the spelling it will probably work.

      @LiteraryMind: Thank you LiteraryMind for visiting and liking my lens. I wish this had been around 50 years ago but it's only just 30 years since the Roger J Callaghan actually discovered the technique and around 23 years since Gary Craig refined it and some 6 years since I "discovered" it but boy what a difference it's made to my life.

      @Sojourn: Thank you Sojourn for visiting and Santa Sqidding my lens I really appreciate you doing that. EFT is truly marvellous and from personal experience the only times it doesn't work is when you don't do it or you're not honest with yourself about what's causing you distress, so I'm glad you found it works. Best of all the materials needed are free but of course if you need a Practitioner it then involves some cost.

      I don't remember what show I was watching (Dr. Oz?) but they demonstrated tapping on the side of one's forehead to relieve tension headaches. I have used that technique ever since I saw the show and it works for me every time. I use it when I have sinus pressure, too. It has something to do with breaking up the build up of fluid in that area but I never knew a formal term for the exercise. All I know is that it helps so I'm not surprised there are other points where you can tap for relief. Interesting!

      @aesta1: Thank you aesta1 for visiting and liking my lens I do appreciate it. I'm sure in a very few short years Tapping/EFT or Emotional Freedom technique will in a lot of cases by the treatment of choice for getting rid of those horrid fears, phobias and a lot of other nasty things in our lives and no drugs or surgical intervention, how good is that. Watch for a video I'm going to put up in the next few days with a different style of Tapping and also I have just added a comment from an Eminent MD from Harvard.

      Hi ted-batchelor, thank you for visiting and liking my lens I really appreciate your time. EFT is slowly but surely getting found around the globe and it's wonderful effects from stress, anxiety, fear and all those other nasties we have in life are being felt by bigger numbers of people every day, but that's just the tip of the iceberg as people realise they can heal themselves from most of their sicknesses without having to be medicated or have surgery.

      I'm not saying there isn't a need for these things just that there are so many things that respond when Tapping is used without interference to our natural energy flows that control our daily lives. It's truly marvellous.

      @Countryluthier: Hi COUNTRYLUTHIER, I'm glad I have been of help to you and I hope to become an EFT Practitioner very soon to help others like yourself who don't know about the easiest way possible to health coach your emotions to be able to do so. It is so easy, non-invasive, and a calming way to clear out emotional clutter you'll ever find.
