Hi Everyone,

Here is an article by Baerbel Froehlin showing the synergistic use of EFT that benefited both Baerbel and her cat.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary!

I have a cat, Noodle, who had to have surgery to take out a big mass, located on her right side.  Since Noodle is 14 years old and suffers from severe arthritis – see my article "Helping my cat Noodle to walk again" - the vet told me it could be risky to do the surgery, because of the length of time and the amount of anesthesia involved.  

Noodle has become a very dear friend to me; she is highly intuitive and loving, at the same time smart, independent and strong.  She was a busy hunter while she still could go outside, before her arthritis hit.  She also educated the other, new young cats that came and went while she was there always.  I once watched her in disbelief as she "coached" a young cat down a very high tree where it was stuck, crying.

The night before her surgery I spent extra time with her, tapping on her and telling her how easy and fast the whole surgery thing would go by her, without any problems whatsoever.  All the time she looked straight into my eyes, purring, making little noises, talking back to me.  She always loves being tapped on!  I reminded her how strong she was, how protected at all times because I gave her several small cat angels that would watch over her at all times.

I had this feeling of danger; I clearly was afraid for her to run into problems.  I noticed how bad I felt myself.  It felt like I had a weight on my left side chest that seemed to get worse and affect my stomach.

The next morning, after they took a blood sample, the vet called me, telling me that one of her kidneys seemed to have a problem.  He suggested waiting for a few weeks and doing more tests.  The fear crept up on me again because in the past Noodle had vomited a few times too often, she sometimes coughed and scared me.  Finally I made up my mind, thinking of the huge lump in her side that needed to go, and thus they did the surgery.

All day long I felt miserable with my chest pain.  Even more scary, I had no appetite at all, my stomach was in alarm mode.  So I tapped:

Even though I have this chest pain…

Even though it feels like Noodle is in my chest…

Even though this pain is scary … right next to my heart … could be dangerous … could be severe problems…

I'm scared … for Noodle … and for myself … we both have a problem … don't know what's going to happen … I'm scared…

Noodle is in my chest … I choose to get through this … for both of us…

I choose to trust that it is not my time to go just yet … I can be strong for both of us … tomorrow is going to be a much better day!

The pain subsided for a moment and came back.  Whenever I took a deeper breath it became stronger, so I refused to even think about it any longer.  I kept sending surrogate EFT to Noodle, telling her how good life would be for both of us when the surgery was over.  I promised her big meals as soon as she could eat again.

Noodle is a glutton; she insisted on being fed the moment I brought her home.  She had a 3-inch incision with an oozing drainage tube and was still very weak.  Her legs couldn't carry her, however, she walked to her feeding place, falling over twice and sat there, shaking, waiting for her promised food which she inhaled like there was no tomorrow.

We did a few rounds on reducing the oozing of the wound … for quick healing needed amount only; we tapped on being able to relax and let the body do the work now, using the food for recovery energy.  We tapped on how lucky we were to be through this, feeling good and strong, ready for bed and a deep refreshing sleep.  I told her there was no pulling and scratching at the wound area, she would leave it alone so I could take the terrible plastic collar off.

Suddenly I realized that the weight and pain on my chest had left; I could breathe and felt good as usual!  Obviously, doing all the tapping for Noodle I had done it for myself too.  It helped that she was out of immediate danger so I could relax.  The next morning I noticed the drainage had almost stopped.  Noodle had two big breakfasts, then rolled over and slept herself into fast recovery!

The wonders of EFT!
