EFT through divorce
A colleague recently asked me if EFT is beneficial while going through a divorce. He knows it is helpful for clearing past events, but he isn’t clear on how to approach EFT for someone still in the midst of the divorce process.
Here is my response to him:
Yes, definitely! EFT can powerfully reduce the trauma of a current experience and clear the layers while it is happening. Indeed, part of the definition of trauma is that it is isolating. When you receive healing support during a challenging time, it may not even be experienced as trauma, or at least not in the same way.
Divorce and other painful experiences often stimulate old wounds that are in need of healing along with the current and fresh wounds. EFT is very helpful in bringing healing and release to the pain of the situation. Of course, EFT is unlikely to change the outer circumstance, but it will support you to traverse the experience in a way that is deeply life-changing and empowering.
That being said, having been through divorce myself, it can be incredibly sad and painful and while EFT did not take that away, it is my observation that grief has its own journey and timeline through each of us, it was a powerful support to me as I went through it.
