Tierney overcame the devastation of being abandoned with her unborn child and is now hopeful and certain about life moving forward.
"I got to the point where it was difficult for me to get up and make myself something to eat. I couldn’t take care of myself. I felt hopeless."
In the Spring of 2017, Tierney was blindsided by an unspeakable event when her longtime partner up and left without warning, just two weeks before their child was born. After the initial shock wore down, panic soon replaced it as her entire living situation was also forced into change and extreme stress accompanied a flurry of new worries including the extra financial burden.
"I didn’t see any light. I just felt lost. I just didn’t know how I was going to get through it with my children."
When Tierney and I met she was living in deep grief. She told me how hard it was to get through the days without feeling it constantly, and how devastated she was that her family was no longer going to be the way that she had pictured it. "I was heartbroken and woke up every day not knowing how I was going to make it through the day," in her words.
We wasted no time and immediately got to work transforming every source of grief, guilt, blame, doubt, jealousy and disappointment that she could identify and feel. We actually cleared away a record-breaking thirteen (13!) separate triggers in one session, including seven painful scenes of imagery and six upsetting dialogues that kept looping in her mind on torturous repeat. At the end of the hour all thirteen triggers had no effect and felt blank. She could think about them and feel nothing, when just earlier they were causing constant torment.
"I feel hopeful now, I feel like I can let this go completely and that it’s going to be okay. I don’t even know how to express it with words, I haven’t felt this calm in a while, it’s just amazing."
After just one session Tierney was visibly looking more comfortable and she reported how nice it was to finally feel calm, relieved and very much at peace. She said she felt lighter, that she felt it’s going to be okay, that indeed she knew it’s going to be okay now. "It’s easier for me to get up and take care of myself now. From a situation that felt hopeless, I feel like I can move on and do what I need to do. I feel like I know I can do this now where I was doubting myself before."
"If you’re feeling grief, if you are in pain and you want to let it go this is definitely something that you need to try. I was skeptical, but I tried it and I feel so much better. This is something you should really give the time of day to learn. It’ll change you."
Tierney wants others to know that if this helped her then it's going to help other people because she truly felt like she wasn't going to be able to pull through this and now she knows with certainty she is going to be okay. "I was really nervous going in, I told myself being out of my comfort zone is what’s going to help me. I told myself this is something I really needed to try. You just have to be open for it. This is definitely a skill you want to carry with you." She is also very excited to use this with her kids now, as she sees the amazing benefit in such short time!
UPDATE (12/12/17): "I got back together with my partner recently. He's made so many changes and we've never been in a place as good as we are now. I still use the techniques that you taught me; I hope you get to help many more people because you sir are a lifesaver. I mean it. You helped me so much. I'll carry those skills with me for the rest of my life. I've learned how to let things go!"
