I looked up and saw a man with his young daughter. The man was pale and sweating profusely. The daughter, who was about 8 years old, was trying to reassure her dad. I asked him how could I help. He told me he wasn't able to get a hold of his wife, that the bank gave him a counterfeit $100 bill and he needed to be able to feed his daughter who had hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). I told him I was a nurse and a hypnotherapist while I assessed his daughter for signs of low blood sugar (there were none), he however was in a panic.
I asked, "if I could help you with your anxiety, your fear, would you want me to?" as I wanted his permission before I offered to help. He said "yes".
I used EFT with him and his anxiety went from an 11 (on a 0-10 scale) to a 6 in one pass and then to a 3 with the next. There was now color in his face and the sweating ceased. He looked like a new man! He was very surprised that the EFT worked and so quickly! Knowing he was open to suggestion I said to him, "the only thing that changed was your perception and thoughts about what was happening", as he was still at the airport, still couldn't get a hold of his wife, and would eventually still need to feed his daughter and himself.
As a hypnotist I know perception is everything and was hoping to drive that home for him, so he could see how fear clouded his ability to strategize and work through his situation. He got it and confided his anxiety is why he was no longer working as a chef. Fortunately, I had my iPad with me and was able to email him a copy of the EFT handout I use so he could use the process in the future. I also gave him money so he and his daughter could get something to eat and went along my way, knowing I was able to make a difference in someone's life in such a simple way.
I share this with you as I want you to know you don't have to do something huge or grand to make a difference in the life of another person! What I did took me 10 minutes. Sharing this story also enables me to share about EFT. If you’re interested, you can use this link to learn more about how EFT works so that you too could make a difference in someone else’s life as well as your own. If you have any questions let me know. EFT can be used for fears, cravings, discomfort, nausea, heartburn, and more. A person doesn't have to believe that the EFT will work, only that they want what they're experiencing to change.
