What I love about EFT? My story, my passion, my vision:
Have you ever felt like you were living your life with your emergency brakes on? I was afraid to put myself out there and be seen. EFT helped me release that brake, quell my ever present “am I enough” doubts, and move into a life I’d never even dared to dream before.
I always knew I wanted to help people. At age 6 I wore a nurse’s costume as often as my Mom allowed and asked everyone and anyone "How do you feel?" The dream of becoming a nurse lasted until high school, when I admitted to myself that I loved gym class, not science or math. Getting a degree in Social Work seemed the perfect choice, because I was a great listener and loved hearing people's stories. After working in that field for a few years I became interested in addictions and worked at a half-way house and in hospital settings. When my children started preschool, I realized it was time to switch gears in order to spend more time with them. I found a new and perfect career as a senior center manager, where I stayed for 30 years.
Wise women say there are no accidents in life. EFT’s arrival shortly after I retired was joyful serendipity. My life was messy at that time. That year I lost both parents within 8 months of each other, all three of our daughters were dealing with serious illness, and I desperately wanted to do something meaningful to help myself and others.
I had equal amounts of curiosity and hope I day I found EFT. I attended a meet up session and tapped along with a beautiful heartbroken 21-year-old whose fiancée just called off their wedding days earlier. Whoa – that happened to me when I was 21 too – coincidence? I don’t think so!
That meeting was the start of a wonderful journey of healing and self-discovery. I’m a late bloomer in more ways that I can count, and it truly helped me break through my introvert barriers and resolve issues and hurts that had been with me for a very long time. A cherry on top was that I released emotional eating and 30 pounds along the way.
A beautiful world of possibilities emerged along with a profound knowing that becoming an EFT Practitioner was what I was meant to do.
