4th of July Unintended Trauma

sm-fear-2At last year’s July 4th celebration, I was standing with some friends when someone lit one of those big long strings of little red firecrackers off right next to us. The guy next to me fell to his knees in utter panic, wide-eyed, glistening with sweat and pulled me down, too, as he fell.

It’s times like this that I’m so thankful to know how to help. Within 15 minutes of tapping with me – without his saying a word – he was on his feet, shaken but OK enough to be able to speak and do more tapping until he truly felt good.


I remember my dad doing the same thing on July 4th when we went to the beach to see the fireworks. My mother and I used to dread it because we knew what he’d do.

He’d be OK until the huge, no-lights boomy ones went off, and then he’d hit the ground, crashing onto his belly, taking anyone close enough to be within arm’s reach down with him. Shell shock, they used to call it. PTSD now.


So this year it happened again. I was at a friend’s whose neighbors like to build those doorway-sized archways that have the little red crackers strung in multiple strands from the bottom of one side across the top and down the other. Takes about 25 full minutes of incredibly loud po-po-pop-po-po-po-pop-popopopopopopopopopop-popping to be done with the darn thing.

“Sam” was across the lawn from me, but I saw him crash to his knees, ducking down and covering his ears and crying. I ran over and helped him up and into the house, where we did some quick work on his intense reaction. We had to neutralize not only his reaction, but his rage and shame that others saw him like that.

After only 20 minutes of very simple but very specific tapping, we were able to go outside and watch the very end of the popping. He had no reaction to it at all. I asked him if he could have done that before, and he said he’d have had to wait at least an hour for the initial shock to wear off, and then the shame and anger to subside.


There’s not one bit of shame in reacting like that. On the front lines of war, his body learned to react that quickly to get down and out of sight as a way of survival. It was serving him.

But now that he’s back home, the survival switch hasn’t turned back off, and loud sounds coming unexpectedly, or any number of other triggers, can make his body react to try to protect him. That switch needs to be turned off again! But how? Continue reading

How to Let Go of Fear of Death and Dying

Roberta Grimes: Messages from the Afterlife

I used to cry myself to sleep when I was in my late teens and 20s. I thought dying was The End, that I would be annihilated upon the death of my body.

I had no religious or other background to refute that idea.

I thought heaven was a myth that was invented to get people to be ‘good’ in this life.

The Fun of Dying Author, Roberta Grimes, had a powerful experience of the Light when she was 8 years old. You’ll be interested to learn why she thought there was no god, and what her message from the Light was.

fun-dyingYou’ll be amazed at what she found out in her years of research about death, dying, the afterlife, contacting the dead, ‘rescuing’ dead people, and more.

Roberta discovered something that would have released me completely from my fears. Wish I’d had this then.

You’ll love this interview! Besides, we laughed a lot! LISTEN HERE!

How the Pleiadean Protocol Helped Me Eliminate Extreme Distress

Have you ever had a long spell of feeling really great, and then, completely out of the blue, one day you wake up almost in panic, or extreme distress?

That’s what happened to me last week, with a very deeply felt personal worry.

Even tapping only went so far to get me any relief. Just allowing the smallest thought about this problem made my heart beat like crazy and my chest feel like I had chains around it that were getting tighter and tighter.

My hands were dripping sweat, and I had this unshakable conviction that if I started crying, I would never stop, ever.

I felt Hulk-sized pile-driver pressure behind my eyes, giving me a massive headache. Massive.

After a full morning of this, I was beside myself, because it was so horrid I didn’t see how I could shift it, much less ride it out.

Yes, I was tapping, doing my usual “something-amazing-is-happening-right-now” conscious thinking – and yet – under it all was this hideous pain.

Yes, I’m an experienced tapper and perspective-shifter and creative reality-shifter.

Yes, even those of us who are, still get bowled over by life’s challenges! This is part of the shamanic process we all go through to let go of what isn’t working, and creating something new out of it.

Only the letting go part wasn’t happening for me.

I told my buddy Rebecca Marina Messenger about it, and she suggested I come to her class that she just happened to be teaching that afternoon.

Then she told me the name of it. Great name, I thought to myself…but…

Will it Work for Me?

I wasn’t sure it would, since the topic of the class wasn’t on what was specifically going on for me.

But I really trust Rebecca, so I attended anyway. And, sure enough,  within the first five minutes of the first process she took us through, I had the most powerful, most profound shift I’ve ever had. Ever.

What Happens to You When Your Hypothalamus is “Shrouded”?

Is Your Hypothalamus Shrouded?

Fix Your Metabolism…Get Charged Up, Have Brilliant Ideas,Be Wonderful!

rebeccaThis Awesome Audio Program is by my good friend, Rebecca Marina Messenger, who is a channel for Divine Mother.

Here’s how it happened…like penicillin, most greatest discoveries occur by accident…Rebecca tells us what happened:

My good friend Sue and I are doing a cleansing food program together. Her fat-loss progress got stuck so I asked Divine Mother, “what can I do to help my friend move forward with her success?” (mine was slow but steady)

Divine Mother said, “Rebecca, you need to take the ‘shroud’ off her hypothalamus… and try it on yourself first.”

Now, I had no idea how to take a ‘shroud’ off anybody’s hypothalamus (or what the heck a ‘shroud’ could be composed of!).

Here’s what Divine Mother said…

“Rebecca, if your hypothalamus is shrouded, you aren’t going to feel like doing much of anything, you will not have enthusiasm, you will procrastinate…and you will feel sluggish.”

hypo-shroudedDo you have any of these signs?

  • Inability to release FAT from your body
  • Slow metabolism – leading to fat storage
  • Stuck or cloudy thinking – inability to focus
  • Low Sex Drive
  • Inability to reason, feeling helpless
  • No motivation – discouragement
  • Hideous procrastination

Bottom Line…the Hypothalamus governs metabolism. If yours is shrouded, it ain’t gonna work right!

Want to unshroud your hypothalamus? You can!

“I Will Protect You Always!” NOT.

“I Will Protect You Always!”

bad-dream-shiftEver say anything like that to your kids? Watch out!  That’s a promise that no one can possible keep – and – read on to  find out how it may even hold you back!

“Mary” came to me saying, “I wish I could make more money (as a seamstress serving local clientele and dry cleaners, making $15 an hour), but I feel like there’s some kind of hand holding me back.”

After a little investigation, I found out that she had been in a bad car accident with her 15-month old son 22 years ago. Her husband had been killed; she sustained minor injuries; the baby was fine.


Something told me it wasn’t the accident that was the key traumatic event, although it, indeed, had been traumatic. I had a strong feeling that there was something else.

Sure enough, as we talked and tapped, it came out that on the way home from the hospital, she had looked her son in the eye, and – although she knew he wouldn’t get what she was saying – she told him, “don’t worry, I’ll protect you always!”

At the time of her session, she was angry and upset because her son “acted like a spoiled brat,” and was surly and resentful that he still lived at home, although he’d wanted to move out since he was 18.

She’s a talented dress maker, but stayed home ostensibly because she wanted a “strong family unit.” They both felt trapped.

After we released the trauma of the car accident and her husband’s death, we also released the snag of the vow to watch over her son “always.”

She realized having a strong family included letting her son go out into the world to do his own learning and contributing, and for her to do the same with her own talents.

She signed off the call feeling free and excited – and with a list of stage managers she knew personally who she was going to contact to see if she could serve them with costume creation, her first love.

As I write this, they are on a flight together to NYC, where he will study – ironically – acting. He no longer “acts out,” is happy and even excited.


Can you see how one belief, one declaration, one vow can grow out of a traumatic experience and hamper more lives than even your own?

What vow did you take that holds you and/or someone else back?


“What decision did you make in a time of trauma or upset, what belief do I hold, what vow did you take that keeps you living an itty-bitty life…
•  when you and your spectacular voice could be on stage entertaining or helping others?
•  when your art could grace homes, offices, gardens and outdoor plazas and courtyards around the world?
•  when your knowledge of health/fitness/weight-management care could save someone’s life?
•  when your business knowledge could help someone succeed, make money and help others, as well as better support her family?
•  when your communication techniques and skills could help individuals, companies and countries working for peace instead of fighting interminably?


I invite you to finally ELIMINATE the TRAUMA you went through – whatever it was, mild or extreme – and its after effects, limiting decisions, beliefs and habits – from YOUR LIFE!

Make the commitment to your inner health and well-being – email me with your concerns and we’ll set up one or more Trauma-Busting Sessions for you!
