Breast cancer fear--getting yourself out of the way

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™. As a result, it is likely outdated.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.

In my video series Steps Toward Becoming The Ultimate Therapist I emphasize repeatedly the EFT advanced concept of "Getting ourselves out of the way." This means to quit trying to be the Great Healer in the Sky and let healing occur THROUGH us rather than BY us. Doing so allows Guidance to provide endless avenues of creativity and will often produce results when you are otherwise stuck. In this article, Jayne Morgan-Kidd was getting nowhere with a breast cancer patient UNTIL she got herself out of the way and let new ideas come from "out there."

Hi Gary,

I was working with a new client over the phone last week. She is a breast cancer survivor. We talked for quite a while about many events from the past related to this cancer; the discovery of it, the doctors, the hospital, the surgery, and of course, the feelings.

She had been cleared of this cancer for one and a half years when she discovered another lump in the same breast. She felt very fearful about the possibility that this lump would also be cancerous. After we had completed several rounds of EFT with no real progress, I was finally able to 'get myself out of the way' and thus came up with a creative avenue that helped us produce results.

So I said to her, 'let come into your mind a peaceful image of your body from the past '. She said she remembered a time when she was sitting in meditation with her Spiritual Master. I asked her to hold that image in her mind while tapping on each point (shortcut). I also asked her to take a breath at each point as she tapped. (I tapped and breathed as well, but did not have an image in my mind. I just focused my feelings and energy on her.)

When we had completed that round, I asked her to allow an image that represented how she felt about her body at this point in time to appear in her mind. She told me that instantly a cactus had appeared in her mind. She added that it made sense to her because she didn't like to touch her breasts for fear of finding another lump. We did the same technique with the tapping, breathing and imaging.

When we finished the round on the cactus image, I asked her to find a way to blend both images together into a new image. She said she could see herself with her Spiritual Master surrounded by beautiful blooming cacti and this image felt very good to her. We did the exact same tapping, breathing, and holding the new, combined image. When we finished this round, I heard the big sigh! She told me her fear was greatly reduced.

Although the tapping/imaging rounds weren't really on fear, the resolution of her fear seemed to be the result of those rounds of tapping. Hmmm... All very interesting, but the best thing I did was to get myself out of the way so this idea could come through when she needed it. It wasn't until my second session with her that she told me she is a very visual person and uses imagery a lot. So this was a good choice for her. But who knew?? Not me! I have to say it again. The best thing I ever do is get myself out of the way and let this work go through me.

I have since used this imaging technique with a couple of other clients. Both resulted in relief for each client on an issue.
