If you are of about my age, or indeed if you are a fan of old Tom and Jerry cartoons, you can remember how the lady would scream atop the chair while Jerry ran around the house. Well, that was pretty much the way I was. One particularly embarrassing incident involved a small rat my cat had brought in and abandoned. My cat loved to bring them in but soon would abandon the chase. And I was all alone on this particular occasion. That poor rat must have been terrified as I stood on my chair screaming! But I did not see it that way then. So, anyway, back to my story... Having stood for a while, I finally dared to crouch on the chair. And it happened to be the chair at my computer. And I remembered I was online; help could arrive from the chatroom I was logged onto. Making sure my feet stayed off the ground, I asked for help. One particularly kind person talked me calmly through killing the helpless little soul. I will spare you the details; let us just say it was not one of my proudest moments. Then there was the time I was staying at my daughter's with the aforementioned cat. And he did it again. Only he did it with bigger rat this time; a medium-sized one. Luckily, my other cat was also staying and she bravely did the deadly deed when we locked her in with the helpless little soul the same size as she was then. Years went by and my career took me to the point where I became an EFT practitioner. And as luck had it, a whole family with animal phobias came to see me, one by one. And then one day soon after, I saw a rat on the underground station that I was happily chatting to. But hold on a minute, I thought. Am I not afraid of rats? Apparently not! Somehow, I had borrowed benefits from my clients and was cured of my fear. That was truly a wonderful moment of realization! EFT is a great way to release a phobia gently and effectively. It worked for me. You can download a free guide from many online resources and find out more for yourself. Or you can dive right in and work with an experienced practitioner. And soon, your phobia can become a thing of the past.
