The following is a case study submitted to Joanne Callahan as part of TFT-Dx certification:
Female in her mid 30’s: lost her son at the age of 4 due to a rare genetic disorder less than a year ago. It is coming up on the first anniversary of his death. He was completely dependent on his mother and was not mobile at all. Fed by tube feeding, suction machines and continuous 24/7 care. Diagnosis was given with an undefined outcome of not knowing what each day would hold and the outcome being death.
So her life was a ticking time bomb for 4 years.
Current condition: She was feeling anxiety and fear of not knowing, not knowing how she will cope with the first anniversary. Anger for losing her son in the first place, why did this happen to her??
Algorithms used – Complex trauma with anger and guilt and she went from a 10 to 3.5.
I then corrected for level two reversal and repeated the algorithms. Ending SUD was a ZERO- there was no feeling of anxiety when thinking of the first anniversary or thinking of his death.
We finished off with ER- Floor to ceiling eye roll.
Comments: Client B was nervous and found it extremely difficult to hum the tune of Happy Birthday in the beginning. She fought back tears and somewhat choking in her throat. Her SUD dropped steadily and with a great response.
I found that she was humming without a prompt and more ease, without me having to remind her to hum the tune. No evidence of PR or Apex problems and she was extremely open to the treatment and findings.
During the treatment Client was swaying from side to side, she felt at peace, light and carefree.
On Nov. 8, the Philippines experienced a devastating typhoon that left over 5,700 dead and more than 1,700 missing, with about 4 million people displaced. The TFT Foundation is very pleased that the blog now has instructions for the TFT trauma relief technique translated into the Filipino language, Tagalog. You will find it on the right side of this page, under Pages–Technique Instructions–Filipino/Tagalog. Many thanks to Maribeth Cowley for this translation! Please share it with anyone you know in, or having access to, the Philippines. With your help we can do much to relieve the severe trauma experienced by thousands of Filipinos.
By Monika D’Agate, London, UK, driving instructor and TFT therapist, shares how a student of hers used TFT to help a nephew reclaim his life.*
This young man is a very kind and sensitive individual, high achiever with very good grades at school. He has a supportive and caring family.
He only had his driving license for one year when an accident happened. Driving his father’s car only on occasion had given him very little experience. Furthermore, the country he lived in has very poor standards of competence, allowing people to take their driving test only after 30h of practical driver education.
Where it could be enough for someone with existing skills, for most people starting from scratch, it’s half or even less of what is really necessary to be competent and safe on the road. Sometimes people think that they are born with driving skills and they acquire more common sense as they get older. It’s rarely the case for the former one and not always the case for the latter.
One late evening, this 19 year old was driving back home from his factory, where he had a part time job. His parents bought him a car the week before. He was approaching a bend, not going fast, but when a car came up from the opposite side, blinding him with its high beam lights, he hit something.
As a Quantum-Touch® bioenergy healing instructor I often receive calls from training graduates asking how to handle difficult client situations.
A former student and client we’ll call Karen called asking how best to manage a distance healing request for a longtime friend with serious pancreatic cancer. The cancer had spread to her friend’s liver and other organs. The treating oncologist estimated her friend, we’ll call Jim, had about two months to live. Neither chemotherapy or radiation treatment offered any hope of recovery according to Jim’s doctor.
The protocol for distance healing is straightforward and well known to Karen. Her consultation request related to behavior by Jim’s wife and Karen’s own emotional reactions to Jim’s pending death.
We discussed specific strategies relating to Jim’s wife and then turned our attention to Karen’s emotional reactions. She felt a profound sense of sadness and worry compounded by fear she might be blamed for not doing enough to save Jim’s life. When I asked Karen Continue reading “Releasing Traumatic Roots”
In my experience, the most common problem with grief is people not grieving. When a client comes in looking for help with grief, the first question I ask is, ‘What are you doing? How are you grieving?
The most common response is that it hurts too much and “I cry ever time I remember (he or she) is gone.”
Avoiding the memories, avoiding the parts of their current life that triggers the memories, or avoiding sharing memories with others is a common coping mechanism to manage the pain even for the toughest person. Taking the time to be with feelings of love for the one who has died and integrating the fact that person is no longer with him or her is a necessary component in reconstructing a life.
Grieving is an active process requiring our engagement. Time passively passed without our conscious awareness is of little help in this process. Time spent locked in overwhelming emotion that freezes our thinking and prevents us from taking action is of less help. Making the change in our being requires living with the reality of having been given the gifts of our loved one and now being without the physical presence of his or her. TFT provides a means to getting unstuck and using our feelings in this change process.
A woman in her late forties approached me after a presentation at a conference and asked for help dealing with the loss of her son three years earlier. In his early twenties he had been killed in Continue reading “TFT and Grief”
“Thank you for providing me the TFT tools & protocols to overcome the trauma I recently experienced regarding my Moms sudden death and for preparing me for my Fathers heart surgery this coming Monday. TFT has made the fear, rage, guilt, & deep sense of loss I felt prior to using the TFT tools easier for be able to process and reach a feeling of total acceptance & healing.”
