A dog's thunder anxiety fades with surrogate EFT

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™. As a result, it is likely outdated. It provides practical uses for EFT Tapping but you should also explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT, by reading our free e-book, The Unseen Therapist™, and/or get help from a Certified EFT Practitioner.

Here is yet another successful example of using EFT surrogately (remotely) for animals. We have so many reports like this that I suspect, someday, EFT will be a standard tool for pet owners.

Hello Gary,

Just want to pass on a little something regarding my dog, Anaiis, who is scared of thunder.

I just started viewing your EFT videos - I bought the entire program- and find them inspirational. I am a hypnotherapist and was aware of EFT during my training, however, instructors only touched lightly on the subject matter.

In any case, we had some thunder the other evening, so loud in fact, that it shook the house and I wasn't sure if we were experiencing a small earth quake as well. My dog, as with many dogs, becomes extremely anxious when thunder occurs. She begins to pant heavily, paces the floor and drools drastically!

Because Anaiis sleeps in my room, every time her thunder/anxiety takes place, it keeps me up and I can't sleep. So, rather than get frustrated with her (as I usually have in the past) I decided to tap for my dog in my head as I was laying in bed. I went through the basic recipe, saying, "Even though my dog is afraid of thunder she completely and totally loves herself and relaxes...knowing everything is OK." I wasn't even sure at that time of the morning whether I was supposed to say that the dog loved herself or that I loved myself...!!

Then, I didn't so much as say anything anymore in my mind, but, I just tapped with the intention of having my dog relax. It was more a matter of my connecting with my dog via pure intention of having her relax, and not so much about repeating any language patterns, per se. Anyway, my dog got back on her cushion and went back to sleep!!!! That has never happened before!! I usually have had to send her off into the bathroom or some other part of the house because she usually drove me nuts with her anxiety attacks over thunder. My dog thanks you, and I thank you!

Bye for now,
