That PANIC that rises in you!

What causes it? It makes our heart race a hundred miles an hour. Feels like you are paralysed in your tracks. Any common sense goes out the window, you can’t think straight. It totally consumes you.

How many times have you reacted to a situation due to a phobia? Spiders, cockroaches, snakes, dogs. What is it for you? The dentist? Getting a needle?

The moment you spot a spider or have to go to the dentist, whatever it is for you that panic starts to rise and consumes you. You feel it in your body, your heart starts to race and panic sets in, and you don’t know how to stop it when it starts.

How many times have you changed an appointment or what you are doing because of a phobia?


Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), otherwise know as tapping is having wonderful success in clearing phobias very easily.

Here is a story of Celia who was struggling to take her children to the local park. She recognised that she was now passing on her fear of dogs to her children and she wanted to do something about it. She made the decision to do something about it and booked an EFT session. As we explored her phobia about dogs and got specific about what it was that scared her so deeply and tapped on each aspect of her fear. As we worked though each aspect she came to a new perspective and by the end of the session we cleared the fear she had carried for many years. Today the family happily go to the local park and can stop and pat the dogs without the panic that used to rise and consume her.

For me, it was getting a needle.

I didn’t know why! I just hated needles. My children’s doctor was always more concerned about me fainting every time they had to get a needle. I just didn’t cope. I never did anything about it, I just suffered in silence. I didn’t let people know as they would think I was a big baby. It is just a needle, it doesn’t hurt. I have carried this phobia most of my life. I couldn’t even watch a movie where someone was having a needle. I would cringe and close my eyes until that section had passed.

I didn’t know about Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) – tapping. An alternate modality that can rewire the brain and clear this negative energy by tapping on acupuncture points. 

I didn’t know that it could be cleared up so easy.

As I went through the process of EFT and Matrix Reimprinting, I connected with my smaller self, and I am always amazed at what is released from my subconscious imprints from my childhood. In this, instance the perception of my smaller self was an event when I was a small child getting my vaccination. It wasn’t the needle that frightened my little self but the nurse that gave it to me. The image that rose was the thought of the Roald Dahl movie, “Matilda.” The mean principal, Miss Trunchbull is where my memory took me. Once that was cleared and replaced with a more acceptable picture I have cleared the deep fear that I held all those years about needles.

With all the images and discussions on getting vaccinated for COVID 19, I have no problem seeing the needles going into the arms of people on the television daily. Even when I went and got the jab, I didn’t have that fear rise in me. I didn’t have to have the racing heart or the stiffness waiting for that pain that I would previously have. I can even watch a movie without turning away. 

There is an answer for your phobia. 

Let me help you explore what it is for you and let me help you clear it so that you can move forward with your life without this thing that stops you in your tracks. 

I am so pleased that I said “Yes” so that I can see things in a totally different way today. 

What about you? Are you ready to take the first step to your freedom?
