Less than 100 years ago, when you had a wound infection, you could easily die a slow, grueling death. Families and the medical profession had ways to make this difficult and uncertain recovery as easy and comfortable as possible. They would make the patient rest, clean the wounds, give some light food and drink, cool the fever with a wet cloth or ice. Then they’d pray and hope for the best. There was nothing more they could do. If the infection was serious, death was certain.
A big change then
Today we know that a new method was coming which would help those afflicted. With this they’d recover quickly. Death was defeated. The new method was developed by Alexander Fleming in 1929. He saw that molds killed bacteria in the laboratory. So he developed an extract from the molds to kill the infection bacteria inside of people. Penicillin was born. By the way, Fleming’s discovery was actively discredited and rejected by the established professionals at the time. He was actually laughed out of professional meetings because his ideas were so “ridiculous.”
Once an effective form of penicillin was widely available shortly after World War II, the old rituals of attending to the infected patients would quickly vanish. All you had to do was administer the precious white powder, penicillin, and within a few hours a quick recovery would begin. After nearly 20 years, Dr. Fleming and his new methods were widely recognized. Then British royalty knighted him Sir Alexander Fleming.
A big change today
Now we have a new powerful method to deal with emotional trauma. This new method works so fast and is so effective that established professionals in the field again ridicule it. They cannot believe something would work 10 to 100 times faster than the old tools they are used to.
Over 20 years ago one of the founders of these techniques demonstrated multiple times at a VA hospital that PTSD can be healed in a few hours. Yet only a few months ago has the US Veterans Administration even permitted use of the techniques.
VA psychiatrists just could not accept that something they couldn’t accomplish in months or years could be dealt with of in a few hours or days.
Healing the broken heart now
In my own work the “broken heart syndrome” is particularly easy and quick to heal. Over the past dozen years I have frequently coached people how to do this. Note, I taught them to do this for themselves. I didn’t do it for them! Modest training by a skilled coach can do it. The time required is usually miraculously short, an hour or two, sometimes less. I am talking here only about a single loss of a loved one, the loss of a previously loving relationship or even a single bad experience like an accident. Obviously this does not apply to complex multi-year or repeated bad experiences. That would take more training, work and skill.
Results are typically fast and consistent
There are 3 main phases when working with a single, straightforward loss or other traumatic event.
Phase 1 RELIEF: the pain and shock of the situation diminishes. The facial expression of the client changes dramatically. There are typical reactions: deep breathing, sighing, yawning, tears, smiles or even laughter. These are clear signs of a shift, release and relief.
Phase 2 REALIZATION: the client notices the speed and depth of the transformation they had just achieved. They are puzzled. Surprise how such pain and drama can disappear so quickly sinks in. Just minutes before, their problem had overshadowed their life deeply and incessantly. They often feel the need to talk about this shift. Some say they need to “pinch themselves” to test if it is real.
Phase 3 RESULTS: clients process the new situation. They begin to think about the positive aspects and opportunities which now present themselves. For example after the painful loss of a loved one, now the individual will spontaneously begin to talk about the fond, beautiful memories with that person. With the pain gone the love, beauty and positives of the past can reemerge. Or they get ideas how to deal constructively with a los, e.g. the boyfriend dumped her, now she can see the past problems with him. She decides to look for a new and more supportive relationship.
There is no secret
This process and the results can be easily demonstrated. It doesn’t take that much to show how fast and thoroughly these techniques work. Why don’t you know about it? Why do the professionals not use them?
You actually may know about the techniques. Yet you may not realize how important these natural easy to learn and easy to apply techniques are. The established professional community still has their collective heads in the sand. This is actually quite natural if you understand how the brain really works. Here are the facts:
Connecting the dots
After working with the techniques for a number of years I ask myself that question, why does EFT work so fast? Why does it have such a wide spectrum of application? I began to study the brain and the neuroscience of mind and emotions. It became clear the key lay in the human survival function and stress. Connecting the dots of my experience working with people, the neuroscience, and the brain’s stress mechanism, things began to make sense. Now I started to understand how and why MTT works.
After a decade of experience working with hundreds of people in thousands of session things came together. Insights from neuroscience and how the humans function under stress suddenly made sense. I could see it work in my coaching clients right in front of me. Further improved techniques and my discoveries of how it all fits together have now been documented in my book: “The Girl Who Couldn’t Laugh: The Neuroscience of Stress Management.” Amongst many other things the book gives you a thorough introduction to:
You may realize how valuable this information is for you personally, your loved ones and others around. Anyone who suffers from the stress and heartbreak will benefit. It’s easy to get this book with this link
Readers tell me the book is fun to read and the science has been made easy to understand and brought to life with stories of real people and their experiences.
