EFT Case Story: A Tapping Tale

EFT Case Story: A Tapping Tale

In this case story Leslee Griffiths tells a Tapping Tale. And how sometimes even those who practice EFT sometimes forget to use it on themselves!

She writes: One night my smallest cat Poppy failed to come home before dark. I was worried sick and the usual scenario of tears and anxiety, pacing and calling began again. My husband rolled his eyes and headed for the lounge whilst I tried to understand the pounding in my heart and the overwhelming fear I was feeling. Nothing I did made any difference. I could not be distracted or calmed. Eventually my husband handed me another tissue and suggested I do some tapping. How strange, this hadn't even occurred to me? Well, not really. The feelings that I was experiencing so intensely prevented me from thinking or acting in my usual calm and logical way. I was literally, energetically experiencing a past traumatic state of which I was unaware.

Read on for the full tale...

A Tapping Tale.

Although I am an experienced EFT practitioner it still surprises me that I sometimes forget how amazing EFT can be. I am a great cat lover and owner of 4 beautiful cats. For years I had experienced panic and fear when one of my cats had not returned home before dark. Of course I knew that this fear was rooted in early losses that I had experienced as a child and this was not helped by having had cats killed on the road outside our house.

However, on the few occasions when one of my kitties failed to return home at the expected time the emotions that I experienced seemed, even to me, to be out of proportion for the event. Anxiety would set in, typically with me pacing up and down near the cat flap and calling to the 'lost' cat, often for hours! My poor husband was unable to placate or console me and try as I might I simply could not get myself back into a peaceful, balanced state until the cat had returned.

One night my smallest cat Poppy failed to come home before dark. I was worried sick and the usual scenario of tears and anxiety, pacing and calling began again. My husband rolled his eyes and headed for the lounge whilst I tried to understand the pounding in my heart and the overwhelming fear I was feeling. Nothing I did made any difference. I could not be distracted or calmed. Eventually my husband handed me another tissue and suggested I do some tapping. How strange, this hadn't even occurred to me? Well, not really. The feelings that I was experiencing so intensely prevented me from thinking or acting in my usual calm and logical way. I was literally, energetically experiencing a past traumatic state of which I was unaware.

I had nothing else to do and the cat had failed to materialise and so I started to tap between blowing my nose! One of the marvellous things about tapping is how thoughts simply pop into your head whilst you are tapping. It is as if the conscious mind is distracted by the act of tapping and the subconscious is able to momentarily make its presence known. Having spent about 15 minutes tapping a memory 'popped' into my head.

I was 14 years old. My Mum who had heart problems had gone shopping and was late coming home. In my mind's eye I saw myself at age 14, standing by the hall window peering intently down the street desperate for her return. The feelings were the same as those I was feeling whilst waiting for the cat! 

I was terrified. What if my Mum had been taken ill, collapsed in the street, possibly even died. Alone and with no one else in the house I was in sheer panic and terror. I was 14 years old and every part of my body registered this fear as a life or death event. And the memory was stored energetically in my body.

Even though I had not associated the cat issues with this event of 35 years earlier I realised that whenever a cat was missing it triggered the memory and reactivated the energetic imprint stored in my body from the age of 14. Being aware of this now, I began to tap on the earlier memory of my Mum being late home. I tapped and tapped for about 40 minutes until I could no longer find any emotional resonance with that incident. I had cleared it. At the same time my fear for my cat also disappeared and was replaced by mild concern. I made myself a cup of tea and 5 minutes later the cat returned home!

This was over a year ago and to this day I no longer get any intense emotional distress arising when any of the cats is late or missing. This sounds like only a small issue. Some of you will resonate with it, others will not, and yet for me (the one feeling the intense internal fear) it has been a profound and enormously empowering clearing. I have found that many other events which used to trigger the intense fear of loss have also lost their ability to stir the old feelings of fear in me.

There is no longer any intense fear to trigger, I am free. And this is what emotional freedom is all about. It is not always the most obvious issues that make the biggest difference. Everything is connected and sometimes it is the smallest details of our lives, stored in our minds and hearts and body's that lead us to the core, the original wound. Once the energy of the original wound or root issue is cleared then the remaining branches of the issue fall away naturally, like felling a tree. What an amazing gift we have in our bodymind and with EFT.
