Fear, Confusion, Worry, Doubt are all bed fellows of the Panic Attack
Panic Attacks can stop you in your tracks
When a panic attack presents itself it is like your whole body is out of control; you don't feel like you have any control over your body or the situation itself that brought on the panic attack.
The feelings you are experiencing may be brought on by a familiar set of circumstances. However even though you may know what some of the triggers are that causes you to experience a panic attack, you may still be powerless to stop it happening.
Can EFT be used for panic attacks
Wheres the proof? Well I am the living proof. In fact it was a gift in disguise..
If it wasn't for that period in my life I might not be speaking as a devoted EFT Professional. It was that gift of panic attacks that changed my paradigm, changed my thinking and sent me down this path.
My Panic Attacks
For those whom have not seen my practitioner website and read the story on my about page, I will briefly say that I went through a period in my life where due to a variety of issues I started to suffer from panic attacks. After seeking help through conventional therapy I was left to my own devices to sort it out for myself.
Conventional therapy (working with psychologists) reached its limits and as such I was thrown out into the world to deal with it. As far as conventional therapy was concerned I was healed - or at least there was nothing else they could do to assist me, thus I was left to deal with it.
I was left very disillusioned for if psychology didn't have the answers, if it was unable to help me and the other 1000's of suffers out there, then what will...
After a lot of research and after heading down some weird paths (there's a lot of weird shit out there) I eventually stumbled upon EFT. Being a novice it took some time (due to my lack of skill with EFT at that time), but eventually I was able to completely release the panic attacks. That was over a decade ago now, and to this day I have never suffered another one - "The Joy That Is EFT"
Thus I am the living proof that EFT works and can resolve panic attacks.
Triggers to Panic Attacks
My experience with suffering panic attacks led me to realize that there can be multiple triggers that can cause the onset of a panic attack (lets call them PA's for ease of this page).
Before a PA presented itself I was always aware of it, I personally was able to feel one coming (which was strange). I was not able to stop it, but knew it was presenting itself. Mine was very specific and was brought on by thought and sound.
The thought that x bad thing was about to happen could be enough to trigger a PA. However as we know thought is just that, its only thought, in most cases its not real, and in my case most of the time it wasn't. Thus I was suffering a panic attack simply because I was thinking a thought.. How bizarre is that.
Sound... Now that was a big one for me. Because I was involved in a legal battle at that time I started to expect more crap to appear in the mail box. Thus a dog barking down the end of the street could trigger the fight or flight response, and thus it would also trigger a PA as I thought the mail man was coming. Even though a dog could have been barking just because its a dog doing what dogs do, they bark.
A motor bike driving down the road could trigger a PA as that represented the mail man. Then of course if the mail man was in fact coming, if I realized that it was the mail man, then it would become worse the closer he got to my house, the more the dogs barked, the louder the sound of the bike, him stopping next door to deliver the neighbors mail, then riding up and stopping at our letter box. There were many many many more triggers that brought on or intensified a PA.
There were a whole bunch of sound triggers that seemed to set of a panic attack. It seemed like my brain and ears had become attuned to every sound, and the faintest sound in the distance or a similar sound was enough to trigger a PA.
Lots of Tapping
I actually had to do a lot of tapping on this subject to completely let go of the Panic Attacks. I would tap during a PA and before and after. I would tap on every aspect of the sounds that seemed to trigger the attacks. I had to delve into my thinking to find out what was in my thought patterns that could trigger a PA. There was a lot of work.
I guess as I wanted to be free of them I was prepared to do the work. But I did have some success early on which caused me to press on with using EFT. I was able to bring down the intensity of the PA's just by tapping in the moment I was experiencing one, I didn't have to say much, just tapping on the meridian points during a PA was enough (well that's what I experienced).
So as this was a notable improvement right from the start, an almost instant improvement just by tapping the points during the onset of a panic attack, it was enough to convince me to continue to play with EFT.
And thankfully it worked, I am living proof that EFT works...
Are you Suffering for Panic Attacks
If your suffering from Panic Attacks it is possible to be free from them. You may have to do some work, maybe a lot of work. But its either do some work to get rid of them or live with them for the rest of your life. Trust me I know how it feels, you don't want to continue living another decade with them. Is now the time to let go?
