Water / Swimming

An intense test of a water phobia relief

Hi Everyone,

You may want to print this out for doubters who say things like, "...but does it last?"

Dr. Tam Llewellyn-Edwards from the UK gives us an 18 month follow-up on "Tony's" previously severe water phobia. The cure was tested under the intense conditions of "rapids shooting" without the usual protections. As you will see, Tony emerges without a trace of the phobia.

This is not to suggest, however, that people lose normal caution when experiencing EFT. They still make rational decisions--but without the heart-pounding dread that used to be a big player in their lives.

Hugs, Gary

You may remember "Tony", who had a strong water phobia, from previous contributions to this list.

His water phobia had been completely removed using EFT in November 1999 during an EFT Teaching Workshop. In March this year, some 18 months, later he was on holiday in the jungles of Malaysia and had the opportunity to go 'rapids shooting'. Since losing his water phobia, he had always fancied trying this so he eagerly took up the offer.

If you don't already know, 'rapids shooting' involves an exciting ride down a rock strewn, fast flowing river. It is typically done in a very buoyant inflatable boat, with plenty of anchorage points, wearing a crash helmet and a life jacket. At least that's what Tony thought. However, this is not so in the Malaysia jungle. The boat was a flimsy wooden canoe with no extra buoyancy and there were no crash helmets. There were lifejackets, but these were needed for use as cushions. There was, however, plenty of fast flowing water and rocks.

Prior to EFT, Tony would have been horrified at the planned trip but, despite the difficult conditions, he eagerly jumped onboard. No tapping was necessary and there was not even the slightest return of the phobia.

A couple of hours later, Tony returned to the jungle wharf - soaking wet and delighted. There had been no fear of the water as it crashed into the boat soaking the occupants from head to toe. The EFT treatment had held, allowing Tony to enjoy another waterborne aspect of his Malaysian adventure. This is a further confirmation that phobias cleared with EFT do not return once the initial driving incident is dealt with.
