Last Friday I had the second session with my client, Bob, who has ALS. Unfortunately, the wonderful effects he called me about after the first session only lasted a very short time. When he awoke the next morning after his call to me, he no longer had the strength in his legs.
For the second session, I wanted to record how Bob was moving around with his walker. Many times, people will begin to feel better and they forget how they moved prior to the EFT sessions. Recording their full movement assists in seeing any progress which may or may not take place.
In this video, you will first hear a clip of the phone call Bob made to me the night his legs felt strong again. Then he shows his current ability to walk and move about.
My goal is to help Bob release negative stress from his life experiences along with any other blocks his body will identify. We start with the most obvious: the things which keep him awake at night and worry him. Each session we will work on one of those items. In addition, we will also work on physical components and probably the most important, any “blocks” the subconscious identifies.
I use muscle testing to identify subconscious blocks. Is this 100% accurate? Probably not, but it gives us a direction and a more narrow focus to work upon. For all of the clients I’ve used muscle testing with, it has identified stressful memories which were not in the forefront on their minds. Once identified, the emotions from those memories can be released. Muscle testing is very helpful to use when the client really does not know what is wrong or is not specific enough.
Bob admitted that he has many regrets and feels guilty about several things. I asked him to identify just one of those items and we worked on releasing guilt which he thinks of every day. After doing a couple of rounds on it, that particular feeling of guilt lessened, but he reported that other guilt was surfacing. This is very common when using EFT, other emotions begin to surface. These emotions can be addressed immediately or if they are not painful, they can be addressed on another day. We decided that these clear feelings were something that Bob could tap on himself between sessions.
Next for this session with Bob, we worked on eliminating his fear of falling. This is very common in older people. Often the fear of falling becomes so strong that it actually impedes their walking by causing them to shuffle their feet instead of taking normal strides. Bob stated that his balance has been off and he has fallen a number of times. He definitely had a fear of falling.
After clearing his fear of falling, I then used muscle testing to ask what was causing weakness in Bob’s legs. The muscle testing gave me a time period when Bob was 15 and being bullied in school. We released some of the emotions from this time period. But because the incident occurred over the school year more than once, I gave Bob some homework to work on. He was to tap on one specific person from that time period and release the anger and resentment surrounding that person.
Continuing to use the muscle testing, I also asked if Bob had “parts” which wanted his legs to be weak. The answer was a strong “yes”. He had at least 124 parts which wanted his legs to be weak. I also asked if Bob’s physical condition was due to a physical problem (no) or from emotional issues (yes). Muscle testing indicated that his weakness in the legs was 100% due to emotional issues.
Parts work is the idea that there are parts of our subconscious which really do not want us to get better. This could apply to physical conditions, personal relationships or even finances. Discovering, acknowledging and releasing the emotions of the parts can assist in physical recovery. Other practitioners who use the Parts work have stated that if the parts don’t want a person to get better, the person won’t get better.
During this session, we just identified that Bob has parts, we did not begin any actual parts work. We will do that in future sessions.
