The Power of our Beliefs
Just a few months ago I treated one of the most interesting cases of a cure by TFT. It really amazed me, even though I have watched so many cures by TFT.
She was one of the students in my last Algorithm training, let’s call her “Ana”.
Ana had a limitation on the movement of her left arm since she was born. She could move the right arm perfectly but had only limited movement of her left arm.
As she was talking to me about this and some others things she wanted to treat, she mentioned that she had had a very difficult birth. Her mother had to have a cesarean birth in an emergency, without any anesthesia…
She was born premature and was very fragile. She had a problem that the doctors had to stifle all her chest and left arm for six month.
Ana got better and survived but she had this permanent limitation on the movements on her left arm.
When she told me that it just reminded me of the story of circus elephants when babies they are tied by one of the hind legs with a chain to a wooden pole attached to the ground.
The babies elephants try to escape, but they are not yet strong enough to break loose, then eventually end up quitting and never try to escape …
As adults, these circus elephants could very easily break the chain, but because they have developed the belief that they cannot, they just do not escape their shackles.
By this time, I diagnosed with Voice Technology and applied with her two specific tapping sequences, one for the trauma of her birth and the other for the trauma of being unable to move her arm when Ana was just a Baby. She didn’t have the conscious memory of that but she knew it happened as he mother told her, so, I just asked her to think about it the way she normally thinks about it.
After just a few repetitions of these sequences, Ana started to move her arm a little bit better. Then we repeated it some more times, it was around 8 times total.
I asked her to close her eyes and imagine she was moving both arms totally and freely.
She said it was difficult, so we did the sequences again while she was trying to imagine she was moving both arms perfectly in her mind first.
Ana said she could now move them both in her mind!
So I asked her that still with her eyes closed to start moving physically her arms, just the way she was imagining at that time and much to my surprise she started to move it perfectly and freely!
Then I asked Ana to keep moving her arms and just open her eyes and she was very surprised to see she was moving her left arm totally and fully with absolutely no limitation in her movements! We were both very moved and emotional at that moment!
I told Ana the stories about the circus elephants. She understood and was really amazed at how TFT could easily help her to free her mind and her body!
For me it was one of the most beautiful experiences I ever had as a therapist and even after years working and teaching TFT I still got passionate about what it is able to transform in people’s lives!
With joy and love to be able to be sharing this healing tool in Brazil, Leandro
PS It is my dream and goal to found my own non-profit (NGO) in 2017, so I have to make money for that. I am inspired by the work of TFT Foundation, and it will be dedicated to my mother. Until I have conditions to found my NGO, I am training other NGO volunteers with the trauma and pain algorithm, so they can use it with the people they already help. My goal is to train one NGO group each month.
