Hi Everyone,

Suzanne Peach shows us some of the fine points involved in using EFT for animals. Note how she uses surrogate tapping. She says, "When I work on animals, I work surrogately.  I first start by tapping on my KC point, saying, "I’m Amy" (animal’s name) 3 times.  Then I tap on myself as if I were the animal, envisioning what it's like as the animal.  Here are some of the phrases I used..."

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I've been using EFT on more and more animals with great success.  Here's one of my success stories:

Amy is a standard, black poodle that was adopted a week earlier by a friend of mine.  Amy had been owned by a breeder in another state who kept her locked in a crate her entire life.  She was thin, skittish, nervous and wary of people.  She was also doing all of her business in the house, as she wasn’t used to relieving herself outdoors, having lived in a crate.  The other issue was that since moving here, Amy was hardly drinking any water, which is unhealthy in Colorado's higher altitude.

When I work on animals, I work surrogately.  I first start by tapping on my KC point, saying, "I’m Amy" (animal’s name) 3 times.  Then I tap on myself as if I were the animal, envisioning what it's like as the animal.  Here are some of the phrases I used on Amy:

Even though I’m in a new place and don’t feel comfortable, I deeply and completely love and accept myself and I’m a GREAT dog.

Even though I’m not sure where I am or why I’m here… and I’m a GREAT dog.

Even though I’m scared and don’t feel safe… and I’m a GREAT dog.

Even though I go to the bathroom in the house, which is upsetting my new human… and I’m a GREAT dog.

Even though I’m taken outside but don’t know what I’m supposed to do outside… and I’m a GREAT dog.

Then I used these phrases on the points:

New place … scared don’t feel safe … this is all new to me … what am I supposed to do … where’s my den?

Then, I choose to feel safe and secure (used that phrase a lot) … this is my new home … this is my new den … I choose to go potty outside … new home … release all fear…  release all fear about my new home … release all fear about this human … she seems nicer and more loving … choose to trust this new human

I worked on Amy for about 30 minutes, and then took her outside for a walk.  During this walk, as we approached patches of grass where she could relieve herself, I was still tapping:

Even though I’m not supposed to go potty out here… and I’m a GREAT dog.  

Even though this is all new and scary to me… and I’m a GREAT dog.

Then on the points:

My other human didn’t want me to go on the grass ... but I’m not with her anymore ... She wasn’t very nice to me ... I choose to feel safe going potty on the grass ... I choose to allow myself complete freedom and permission to go potty on the grass

Note - while I’m tapping, I am visualizing Amy going to the bathroom on the grass and feeling good about it.  About 10 minutes into the walk, Amy walked over to a lawn where she proceeded to relieve herself of all of her business.  She was praised and we all went back inside.

Before we left the house, I had also tapped for her to want to drink water, and that there was plenty and it wouldn’t have to be rationed.  We brought a water bowl in and right after putting it on the floor, Amy started drinking as fast as she could.

I finished up the session by tapping on my KC point while saying I’m Susanne, I’m Susanne,  I’m Susanne.

The reports after this session were that Amy continued to improve and was settling in to her new home very well.

One more tip that I’ve found invaluable.  When necessary, I tap for the guardian of the animal as well.  So in this case if the person was anxious about Amy going to the bathroom in the house, (which she wasn’t) I’d tap:

Even though I hate that Amy goes to the bathroom in the house...

Even though I know she’s adjusting and doesn’t know any other way...

I forgive Amy … she doesn’t know any better … I will accept her as she is and keep working on housebreaking her

This is a component I feel crucial for most of my animal EFT cases.  It’s because these beautiful creatures pick up on our feelings and emotions so easily and often mirror them or try to compensate for them.  This, of course, only makes their symptoms worse.  So if you can get the person’s issues out of the way, it often helps with the animal.

With love and gratitude,

Susanne Peach, EFT-ADV
