“Okay, are you ready for this I allowed the Reptile Man to wrap the python around my neck for a family picture!!!! allowed the Reptile Man to wrap the python around my neck for a family picture!!!! he brought a cobra, rattle snake, milk snake, baby anaconda and a yellow 6 foot python all my PREVIOUS fears.
I never escalated, my family was amazed. I slightly elevated when I allowed the Reptile Man to wrap the python around my neck for a family picture!!!! Thank you for the freedom, Gwen!!! xoxo“
Background: When Nicole, a licensed mental health therapist, and I first met for coffee we had lots to talk about. She was reading about EFT.
She mentioned her terror of snakes. She was planning a birthday party for her son…. the following Sunday, in 3 days!, and they had invited The Reptile Man!! The look on her face told the whole story! She was TERRIFIED!!
We scheduled a session.
On her questionnaire she wrote, “I’m all set and excited about today! Must admit, a bit nervous as well, as I really want it to work and my negative voice says, ‘I will be the exception to the norm“, and “that sounds nice but it is never going to happen, my fear is too deep.”
The day of her session she said the intensity was in her Chest. (On a scale of “0′′ being NO emotional charge and “10′′ being a HUGE emotional charge), it was a 10 PLUS!!! “If I were to see a snake….it feels like my heart would pop out of my body!!!”
After our call when I asked her what her biggest Ah-Ha was about the session she responded,
“I didn’t have any idea it was actually my little inner 5 year old’s imagined fear about those events that was the scariest moment!
I realize now how I was being held back. It’s not that way anymore!“
