Using EFT On A Facebook Issue

by Rosario
(Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA)

I've been using EFT off and on for about two years now and I've been amazed at how it has helped me with stress. It has helped me quit smoking and get rid of writer's block, among other things. I sometimes forget to tap on a daily basis but I try to squeeze it in when I can.

I was nervous about introducing EFT to my family. After all, it is quite unconventional and looks rather silly when you really think about it. The explanation of meridians and blocked energy as a possible reason for our physical and emotional troubles sounds loony until you actually try it and experience the results firsthand.

This is actually what happened with my one of my daughters. She'd been bugging me to get a Facebook account for months and I told her no because I felt that she was way too young. Well, all her friends at school had one and of course, being a preteen, she wanted to fit in like everyone else. I told her no and that she had to wait until she was older.

Well, several months later she came up to me and guiltily told me that she opened up a Facebook account on her own and had been using it for a quite some time.

I was very angry at her and promptly had her disable her account. She became so distressed by this - not only because I became angry but also losing that connection and feeling of belonging with her friends.

She cried inconsolably - more than I have ever seen her cry - and at that point, I immediately used EFT. I didn't say anything, I just kept on tapping all the meridian points, including the hand points, as she continued crying on my lap.

I kept tapping for more than an hour until she fell asleep. After I carried her to bed, I tapped on myself and my feelings about at the whole episode - my anger because she disobeyed me, feeling guilty because I made her disable the account, my sadness because I made her so sad and sadness that my little girl is growing up!

I tapped on myself for over an hour until I calmed down and went to bed.

The next morning, it was as if the whole drama never happened. My daughter "forgot" about Facebook and I didn't feel any guilt or anger. We both talked about it and agreed that there was no need for it for now. We both forgave each other but there was no emotional charge at all!

EFT definitely helped us both in one of those growing pains situations that could have gotten us stuck in our parent-child relationship for years. Instead, it was a tool that helped my daughter realize that she could wait several more months for FB and me, as a mom, could let go a little bit more of her child and accept that she's now entering her teens.

Wow - now that's very effective!

EFT Works for Mom & Daughter!
by: Annie Desantis

Thank You Rosario,

What a great example of how EFT can be used. And interesting that you simply tapped with your daughter, without saying anything.

Lovely that working to clear something for you both, ended up in highlighting a number of issues and how wonderful that you have moved through them and have kept such a lovely close relationship. Having seen a photo of your daughters, they are both gorgeous, and as you say it can be hard as a Mom to start letting go a bit as they grow up.

Amazing how EFT can simply clear a range of issues, you have certainly used it very successfully for yourself also.

Many thanks for your contributions,
Wishing you JOY,
Annie D
