We can find ourselves in the middle of catastrophe in an instant. A catastrophe can impact us personally (like a fire in our home) or can involve our entire community (like a natural disaster or mass violence). When this happens we are faced with dealing with the issue in the moment and also its aftermath. […]
Our aim in tapping is to clear any trauma, events, or emotions in our lives that cause us discomfort, disease, or limiting beliefs. If it is true that we can pinpoint the moments that cause our issues, then it must also be true that we can find our way to a time in our system […]
EFT is a powerful tool for clearing trauma, but just because you know how to tap it doesn’t mean that you have a clear understanding of how to tap for trauma. Founding EFT Master Rehana Webster has created a systematic approach to tap for trauma. In this conversation she shares the simple steps behind what […]
The human memory is incredibly complex. As our understanding of the workings of the brain grows it is increasingly evident that the human memory can be very unreliable. Even when we have total confidence in a memory we could be mistaken. On some level most people are aware that their memory is fallible. This can […]
I was lucky enough to be invited to be part of the Empowering The Philippines mission to the City of Tacloban and the surrounding area. This part of the Philippines was hit the hardest by Super Typhoon Haiyan (called Yolanda in the Philippines). Haiya was one of the strongest typhoons on record and released most […]
One of the biggest struggles we have in doing any sort of transformational work is the fact that it is possible for us to NOT see the issue at hand clearly. We are shaped by our experience, our training, our biases, the stories we tell about ourselves, and what we hope is to be true. Because of this, even with the intention to do healing work, we can end up going down a path that is not fruitful.
The problem with misperceiving our issues, ourselve, and our world is it is nearly impossible know that this is the case and that we need to change course in our approach.
In this interview I talk with Dr. Shoshana Garfield about how to deal with misperceptions of ourselves and the world. Based on her personal life experiences and over 20 years of working with sever trauma Shoshana talks about ways we can see ourselves and our world more clearly helping us to move forward.
People throw the word trauma around a lot and because of this it is easily misunderstood. Some people treat trauma too casually and end up trying to work on issues for which they aren’t trained. Others are too nervous of treating trauma and aren’t willing to tap on even the simplest of issues because they are worried about what they might uncover in the deepest recesses of their past.
This difficulty can be true for both practitioners and for people who are using tapping to work on their own.
The best way to approach trauma lies somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. In this interview with Sophia Cayer we explore what we really mean by the word trauma, how we are impacted by traumatic events, and how we work on them with tapping.
I personally found a number of the things we talked about in this interview surprising and very helpful for my own work.
We spend a great deal of our day in the work that we do. Not only does our working hours consume our time but it also consumes our emotions and our energy. In this interview with Rick Wilkes we talk about how stress and trauma in our personal and professional lives can affect our ability to be success and healthy in our work life. We talk about ways of discovering how these past trauma’s are impacting us now and how we can use tapping to clear these so we can be more present in the moment.
One of the words that we throw around when talking about difficult times is the word trauma. In this interview I talk with EFT Master Gwyneth Moss about the true nature of trauma. She very succinctly examples how we experience trauma and how to deal with it. Trauma is not about something that happens, but the after effects. When we understand the true nature of trauma we are much more likely to be able to heal. This is one of those interviews that is worth listening to a number of times.
