At age 28 my life was turned upside down when I went through the most devastating breakup of my life. This event would become the defining moment of my life. I had never felt such agony around anything thus far, and I felt lost in a sea of disillusion and despair.
All I wanted was a breath of relief, to get my head above water for a moment or two. I wanted to feel that everything was going to be okay which felt like a total lie. Before long, I grew tired of grieving and just wanted to move to the next stage but I felt stuck.
I was only getting minor, temporary relief from everything I tried. Nothing was untangling the knots in my stomach or the heart racing jitters I’d get whenever I thought about my future. My mind had become a bully that kept reminding me of what I lost.
I honestly felt like it would take another 28 years before I could feel good again.
After six months of reading self-help books, hours of counseling and venting to my friends to the point they were sick of listening to me, I had an ounce of relief at best. I was still miserable, anxious and sleep was no safe haven either.
One evening, I randomly found this technique on YouTube called EFT, which was supposed to calm the mind in the presence of suffering. I was at the point where I’d try anything and felt I had nothing to lose so I followed the 9 minute guided video. In contrast to trying everything else under the sun, I couldn’t believe how much better I felt after it was over! Doing the EFT method for 9 minutes that night soothed my anxiety to the point where I slept peacefully for the first time in months. It was the first real relief I felt since the breakup. I just couldn’t believe it.
That night has such an impact on me that I began studying as many styles of this technique I could get my hands on. I spent countless hours exploring the world of “tapping” as it’s commonly called. I also joined a weekly EFT group that helped me and many others get relief regularly and I later took over the group for a year.
I relieved all my grief and suffering, not just around my failed relationship, but numerous other issues as well. It was insanely effective!
The more I practiced on myself and others, however, the more I discovered that the traditional methods were complicated, requiring several hours to learn and dozens, if not hundreds, of hours to master. I remember finishing entire manuals and being clueless where to begin once I closed the book and wanted to get to work on myself. I knew there had to be a way to streamline the whole process.
After years of trial and error, I created my own simplified version of the tapping method. I can now achieve results in one sitting that would have required 5-10 drawn out sessions previously. These days whenever I feel anxiety bubble up I can get rid of it on the spot in a matter of minutes, and it works every single time.
I’ve also successfully taught my method to several people since. My students have saved their marriages, gone from total despair to optimism and even released major PTSD from a near-fatal car crash in 15 minutes in one case! The results are almost always permanent as well.
When followed up with months and years later their blessed relief has stuck with them every day since. Mine has as well.
I currently feel more in control of my own life than ever. It honestly feels like life is a big video game and I now have the cheat codes. Living life with this much power and peacefulness has allowed me to finally feel “alive” in the most exciting sense. I sleep a blissful 8-9 hours every night. I enjoy rich relationships. Things rarely get under my skin for very long.
Better yet, I am now able to give that same power to literally anyone who is willing to experience it, often in a fraction of the time that other therapies would require. Nothing is more rich and rewarding than witnessing someone go from total suffering to absolute peace of mind right before our eyes. My message to the world is unequivocally "So much is possible for you, no matter where you currently are, all you have to do is try it"!
