Hi Everyone,

Here are some thoughts regarding EFT and anger as shared with us by someone on the receiving end of this technique, a client. He chooses to be anonymous. I extend a thank you for his insightful words.

Hugs, Gary

From a layperson that has not studied the course but learned the technique from Jack Rowe:

I was working on processing jealous events where anger was one of the dominant emotions. I had trouble completely clearing it, getting the 0-10 intensity down to 3-4, but no further. I realized that the anger was a defense mechanism to protect me from pain. The pain was one of hurt that someone I love would (potentially) love or show affection to a rival. It was based on fear of having this person stolen away from me. I processed the hurt and the fear of getting hurt, getting these down to zero, along with a couple of other aspects about the event. I then was able to get the anger to clear. I think the reason was that a part no longer feared that giving up anger would allow me to still get hurt. Once protected from the pain, anger was free to be released.

In my life, anger comes after I feel 1) an assault on my ego or 2) a loss of something (loved one, self-esteem, possessions) or the fear of either of these. I think it is important for me to process the underlying emotion prior to the anger, since the purpose of the anger is to protect me from pain.

I don't know how extensible this information is to other people, but it seems to work for me.
