In the past I suffered deep emotional trauma that left me in the deep dark pit of emotional turmoil. I felt so fragile that for weeks I could not leave my house without bursting into tears. I couldn’t listen to the radio or watch TV. Everywhere I looked there were reminders of what I had lost and this fueled the fire of my trauma. I felt so brittle that the least little word, tone, look, comment could send me into a downward spiral of agony. I was in the “Dark Night of the Soul” and had to make the decision whether to survive or not. I decided to do my inner work and re-create my life. And, it took a few years before I was truly happy again, living a new life of my making. The process of rebirth would have been much longer without the wonderful energy therapy tools that I utilized.

Some people are diagnosed with PTSD, (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), a nervous breakdown, panic attacks, and other terms for symptoms of a “dark night of the soul” experience. These are all equally painful for the victim, and often take many years to over-come. There are many therapies focused on serving patients of these disorders, and Energy Psychology provides helpful modalities such as EFT that can effectively address PTSD symptoms and causes.

I was already a practitioner of Neuro Emotional Technique when I suffered my own trauma, and the downside is that I wasn’t able to apply this wonderful tool to myself. So, I searched for another energy clearing technique that would enable me to work on myself. A friend introduced me to Emotional Freedom Technique, and immediately I went to work making myself feel better.

It didn’t take long to feel the shifts starting to take place. I focused upon issue after issue, and literally took a Sabbatical from my work and from my busy life to do full-time inner work. When I started using EFT the shifts started happening faster, and I noticed that my dull, dark, low frequency emotions started to release me to rise to a higher vibration and remember what it felt like to enjoy life again. I am so thankful to Gary Craig, Scott Walker, and others who have put the research and the years of experience behind perfecting meridian-based energy therapy techniques such as EFT and NET so that they can be easily applied and make a difference immediately, quickly, and painlessly.

Yes, I am a staunch advocate of energy psychology and energy therapy modalities. I have seen the benefits of doing energy work on myself and with people around me, and I am passionate about sharing these techniques to help others!
