Paul Gray from the UK has experienced quality results by applying EFT to his anxiety disorder. Recently, however, the anxiety re-emerged on a trip to Seattle. This caused him to do a little detective work that led to previously discovered "feelings of unreality." Once those were addressed the anxiety vanished.

By Paul Gray

I have just returned to the UK after an extended trip to the States. By the way I couldn't have done that trip before EFT. And a revelation occurred last month in Seattle.

Traveling and being in a foreign country/state can cause anxiety in anyone. Maybe more so in someone that suffers from anxiety disorder. I took a trip to Florida last year and was fine for the most part. But suffered a bit from vague feelings of unreality. This is quite common with anxiety sufferers especially if they are experiencing a low level of anxiety for quite long periods at a time. The thoughts go along the lines of, "am I dreaming, is this real, am I really here in America, etc?" As you can imagine they can be anxiety causing feelings in themselves.

I experienced this a couple of times in Florida last year but it caught me by surprise on my trip to Seattle, as I generally have no anxiety problems now. So for this trip I sat down and tried to remember the thought process, and simple as it seems now, I had, during all my previous EFT tapping for Anxiety disorder, completely missed out on feelings of unreality.

So I started to tap:

"Even though I sometimes think I'm dreaming ..."

"Even though I cant believe that I'm here..."

"Even though it suddenly dawns on me that I'm in this situation..."

And wouldn't you know it. All remaining problems stopped.

I feel this line of attack may help other anxiety sufferers especially as they gain confidence in EFT and start to push back their self induced boundaries. Particularly as agoraphobia often goes hand in hand with panic attack sufferers.
