If you are planning on creating retreats or other healing opportunities for veterans, I suggest to make sure that you create a reliable hierarchy, a predictable structure and a time table with no surprises.Read More
If we truly want to help veterans heal, we have to find a way to take the charge out of the memories, not just tranquilize the stress symptoms. Skillful and insightful EFT coaching can often do this in a respectful, gentle and effective way.Read More
I was a driver on convoys in Croatia and Bosnia in early 90’s before the Dayton Agreement. It took 6 years for the PTSD, Combat Stress etc… to go full throttle on my brain, body and soul, the latter being the worst in my opinion. More than fifteen years has past and I am still fucked up, but not nearly as bad. I decided to tap on a panic attack that I had in the middle of the night. After five minutes, I felt no pain, not in my body not in my soul.
I actually fell asleep. I can only say that I tapped my way out of it. Next day, I woke up and had a great day. I am going to continue to tap and free myself from the ghosts that haunt all of us.Read More
Asking for help is almost impossible for many Veterans. And it seems to be more acceptable for the military to see their traumatized veterans self medicate with alcohol and drugs, than to give them access to information that can help them heal and be strong again.Read More
If you receive the www.eftuniverse.com newsletter, you have already heard about the meeting with a Colonel from Walter Reed last week, as well as the round table at the committee for veterans affairs on July 21st.
I was honored to attend the meeting, and to share about the work with Veterans and EFT.
Could it be that healing PTSD on the soul level means recognizing and acknowledging a soldier without judgment, without condoning or excusing what happened, but with the compassionate, open mind of someone who cares? Teaching EFT to those who are currently carrying such a huge load of healing and responsibility for the well being of their loved oneEnhanced by Zemanta seems to be a wide open door that might allow for the healing that is already happening to strengthen, for the fears of each other and the past to diminish, and for the intensity of the trauma to subside.Read More
EFT is a powerful tool to release war trauma. In March 2008, five EFT practitioners were invited by Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, to work with eleven Veterans and family members. The work was documented in filas a documentary, as well as a researh study, which was published in “Traumatology” in January of this year.Read More
In San Diego, I will not only speak about how to use EFT Tapping effectively, which was demonstrated so well in the research that we have and the filming of the documentary in San Francisco.
But I will also put great emphasize on teaching some principals of the military mindset, military values, limitations and open doors.Read More
We need to rethink the support that we offer the Veterans and returning troops, and include helping and supporting those who are currently carrying the majority of the load: The Families, military buddies, friends and community members. New healing techniques that don’t require a background in mental health, but rather focus on the soldier’s description of war trauma as a symptom of the soul are necessary.Read More
