After I did a "tapping" demo at a safe house for rehabilitated prostitutes, “Vivian” approached me about her severe foot pain and swelling. Her doctor found no physical reason for the pain, which began after Vivian got off the streets, began her addiction recovery and felt well enough to search for a legit job.
When I asked if she felt unsafe now, she said she felt extremely afraid of starting this new life. As her fears mounted, the foot pain and swelling increased, keeping her at the safe house, unable to wear her shoes and go to any interviews.
Vivian was open to trying EFT and we tapped on her acupressure points using these setup statements:
Even though I’m afraid I’ll mess up the interview or on the job and get fired, I now let go of these silly fears.
Even though I’m afraid of being rejected by employers for jobs I really want, and my feet are in pain, trying to keep me safe at home, I now clear these fears of rejection.
Even though it’s scary starting a new career, I choose to look at this as an adventure on my new life path and let go of the fear-caused foot pain and swelling.
Even though I’m afraid my new co-workers will reject me if they find out what I’ve done in the past, I clear out these fears of rejection causing my feet to swell and hurt.
Even though I’m afraid my new male co-workers will hit on me if they find out what I used to do for a living, I release these fears of not being safe and under attack.
Even though I’ve scared myself with all these crazy fears about things that never happened and may never happen, I now choose to release them and be a confident, empowered woman. So be it!
After we finished the last setup statement and both laughed, Vivian said she felt safe going to interviews and starting a new job. Her foot pain had subsided to a level of intensity of 6 out of 10, but she felt anxious and couldn’t tell me why. I explained to her that I was going to use surrogate muscle testing (SMT) to identify her subconscious fears. SMT indicated that an event in June 1983 triggered her anxiety and the remaining foot pain. I asked her if she could recall any traumatic events at that time.
Vivian said that was when she’d married her boyfriend against her father’s wishes. Soon afterward, her new husband began “drinking and swinging”, physically and emotionally abusing her. When she fled to the safety of her parents’ house, her father told her she wasn’t welcome there as she didn’t follow his advice. Without any money or a place to go, she had to return to her abusive husband who forced her to use drugs and work as a prostitute. We began tapping with these setup statements:
Even though I felt emotionally rejected and hurt by my father and husband, I release all fears and mistrust from that time, now and about my future.
Even though I’m afraid my husband will find me and hurt me again, I choose to believe I’m safe in this house and will never see him again. I let go of my fear and terror of seeing him in public when I start a legitimate job.
Even though so many men have hurt and abused me and I am afraid to trust them, I choose to release these old fears and allow peaceful, kind men into my life and perfect new job.
Even though I was scared about walking that painful, dangerous path for so many years, I now choose to feel safe and let my feet heal to carry me to my perfect new job with kind coworkers and a great boss.
I asked Vivian to think about these frightening situations and tell me how she felt. She replied that she felt no fear, physically lighter and confident that her new path would be much more enjoyable than her previous one!
SMT indicated that all fears causing the pain and swelling were gone but her foot pain was at level of intensity of 2 out of 10 and not 0 out of 10. My intuition told me that that the swelling had to go down for the pain to vanish. According to my muscle testing, her feet would feel better in two days.
When I called the safe house the next week, the program director told me that Vivian was out job hunting, her feet now free of pain and swelling as predicted. Some of the other house residents were so impressed with Vivian’s results that they began experimenting with EFT, too!
I’ve worked with several clients suffering from foot and leg pain which was manifested by current or past fears of feeling unsafe walking their life path or moving out of a painful relationship or unfulfilling job.
After the fears are released, the physical pain may completely vanish or merely lessen to a level of intensity of 1 or 2 out of 10. Sometimes the body needs time to heal even though all fears causing the physical pain are cleared.
