TFT for Rwandan Orphans

Clestin OrphansJuly 2014 – Orphans Learn To Tap Away Their Fears, Anxiety and Depression
by Celestin Mitabu (Kigali, Rwanda)

I was invited to the Rutongo Orphanage to treat the children, victims of HIV, malnutrition and parental mental sickness. The invitation came from the Director, a nun who had experienced the results of TFT several years ago while in Kigali. She invited us to practice and teach TFT to the children.

It was not easy to get time because we were busy with tapping during the commemoration but we tried to spare some time so that children may benefit too. Young girls, (the orphanage is only for girls) were suffering from depression and much anxiety.

In fact, during our treatment for this year (20th commemoration) most of what we treated was all about depression and anxiety. From our experience depression has been a big problem affecting many people and we managed to help them with TFT.

One evening as I was revising my TFT notes and trying to read more about depression I even went to Google trying to compare depression symptoms and causes with what we experience. As I was reading about the symptoms of Depression and those of Trauma, they seem to be the same. I came to realize that where there is trauma there may be a possibility of depression.

We are pleased to now have a version of the “From Trauma to Peace” documentary trailer with French subtitles. Please share this with French speaking friends, colleagues, and anyone else you think might benefit from being made aware of this powerful tool for peace.

Many thanks to TFT Foundation board member Oob Nding for the translation!

TFT in Mexico

TFT HEALS MEXICO
by Brenda Ignorosa

When I knew Tapping Therapy was coming to Mexico, I did all my homework. I read all about TFT and Roger and Joanne Callahan, but when Suzanne Connolly (our teacher) came into the room, I didn’t know what to expect.

I only knew I felt anxiety and fear about a trip that I am going to take. Every past day I woke up with stomach pain and with many other emotions, except peace.

When Suzanne started explaining, everyone was so quiet, trying to understand…In my humble opinion, it is that in Mexico we are not so open yet to all these “alternative” therapies and techniques….

However, the most important thing, is that in our country and maybe all around the world, we have a boom of yoga, therapies, gurus, meditation… But we don’t know who is giving us the complete truth. Sadly, there are a lot of charlatans around these things.

Getting back to my point, the course was without words… Literally… I started the course thinking like in school: I will have a theory and a practice. But TFT is all about experience. There is no a theory and no steps to follow, there is only to feel.

At the end of the first day, we were all laughing. About what? I don’t know, we just felt good. What happened? Again, I really don’t know, I just tapped certain parts of my body, thought about my problems and Bam! I know it sounds like magic, but don’t be scared if it is the first time you read about this.

It all makes sense: Certain parts of your body are connected to your emotions, and your emotions to your brain. So if you press pre-determined points, you unblock the energy…

By the end of the day, I was relieved of that anxiety, really! Not forgetting that, of course, like a good human that I am (haha), I tried to get back to that emotion, but I couldn’t, it was really beautiful. I am grateful!

The second day, we were already strong enough to help other people. We worked with them and we also worked on our own issues.

Nevertheless, the third day was the best!!! The doctors and nurses that were in the course, brought some of their patients to the course so Suzanne could help heal them. When that happened, everyone cried including Suzanne. It was a beautiful moment!

Ebola

The following is an excerpt from the article “Summer Report from Celestin – TFT Trainer, Kigali” in the Fall 2014 issue of “Tapping for Humanity,”
by Pr. Celestin, Director of Rwanda Orphans Project:

 

[This is] a great moment for TFT thinkers and researchers to establish/initiate what TFT may do to help in healing and assisting victims of EBOLA.

It’s becoming a disaster, affecting many Nations in West Africa like Nigeria, Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone plus the Congo in Central Africa where Ebola was found for the first time in years. At the moment, the DRC counts 30 people who have died recently in the province of Equateur, far from Kivu which is our neighbor.

I know people have panic, fear of death, and are traumatized because they are not allowed to run away to neighboring countries. They have a shortage of food because other countries are not allowed to bring goods and food. If all these fears, panic, trauma and stresses can be treated then it’s a reduction in sickness.

I worked with a young boy, 4 months ago who grew up at the Orphanage and he was detected as HIV positive. After he was told that he had HIV POSITIVE, he bought a drug and he wanted to kill himself. As soon as I was told by one of our care givers who took him to hospital I took him outside the center. I offered to him something to drink with a heart ready to accept him in a loving way.

I introduced TFT to him. The three of us with a caregiver, started the tapping exercises. He is now ok. He is no more fearing death and he is very courageous to continue his studies in his final secondary school and is a high performer.

I just wanted to give this illustration knowing that TFT may eliminate HIV fear and anxiety; it can do the same for EBOLA.

Big appreciation to all TFT researchers and volunteers.

My First Trauma Treatment Following TFT Training

by Shalom Siegel, MA Psychology, TFT-DX, 
Israel

In October 2013 a 40 year old woman, with Hashimoto’s disease, had a thyroid cancer operation, and one parathyroid was removed, and one transplanted. After the operation she suffered an attack of Extreme Tetany caused by hypocalcaemia (low calcium in her body).

Her muscles froze, she had trouble breathing. She could not move, and went into severe panic. She continues to have daily mini anxiety attacks lest she forgets to take her calcium replacement pills.

She was very weepy and crying all the time.

I did one round of the basic trauma algorithm, the SUD went down a bit, but she had trouble keeping track of numbers because of her emotional state (crying). I treated a reversal and still it was hard to get clear information from her, so I did second reversal and added nose, chin, index, finger and pinky just to cover it all.

She reported that she was so relaxed she couldn’t think of it (the trauma and anxiety) any more but when she was able (to think on it) she saw it as a picture of something happening to another person. She couldn’t understand what was happening to her. She needed to rest so I explained a bit how it works so that she wouldn’t dismiss it as me doing something to her.

Then we tapped at the ‘picture’ that was left, and in the middle of the algorithm she says “that’s it, it’s gone!” So I did the nine gamut to lock it in and that was all!!!
