E.F.T. Tapping For your Pet
Few things make us feel more helpless than when our pets are ill especially if they have to stay at the vet’s and we can’t see or speak to them. Even though we know all the medical interventions, as painful as many of them are, could be life saving, it’s horrible to imagine how scared and alone our beloved pet might be feeling. Our imaginations can really run away with us but there is nothing we can do – or is there?
How You Can Help Yourself and Your Pet With Surrogate E.F.T. Tapping
It’s wonderful to see Emotional Freedom Technique becoming more widely known and accepted. It is very quick and easy to learn and amazingly effective even in the hands of complete beginners. Not all teachers know, or will tell you, that E.F.T. can also be done surrogately. You can tap on behalf of someone else even when you are not with them.
As we are using loving intention and energy, time and distance don’t matter. You can tap for your pet no matter where you are!
I won’t speculate on how or why this works, there are many different theories and for the purposes of this article, all I care about is that it helps someone out there.
Firstly Soothe Your Self!
We often project our fears onto others. In such a traumatic situation you have to soothe yourself first. We are no use to anyone else when we are in deep trauma and shock ourselves. Your pet feels your emotions and energy so by soothing yourself you also help them.
Three Ways to Tap On Behalf of Your Pet
Tune in to your pet and tap for whatever you feel or can see is upsetting or traumatising them. The obvious ones are of course, pain, fear, isolation and any painful medical interventions.
1. Tap On Your Own Body As Yourself
Simply tap as you normally would, but rather than state you have the problem, use your pet’s name for your set up statement. “Even though (pet’s name or my pet) has this problem (state problem) I deeply and completely love and accept (pet’s name). Do the same with your reminder phrase.
2. Tap On Your Own Body As Your Pet
Similar to the method above but sometimes this helps you tune into how your pet is feeling more accurately. Bearing in mind how connected you are it’s not surprising that you often feel exactly what they are feeling. Set your intention that you are your pet, then tap around as though you are your pet. “Even though I have this problem” etc. Remember to disconnect and come back to yourself when you are done.
3. Using A Proxy Item To Represent Your Pet
This can be a really useful way to help you focus. Any teddy bear, doll or other toy will do. Simply intend the toy to represent your pet and tap around the points as normal.
The Question of Permission
Given that you only have the highest and best intentions for your pet, your heart and intent are pure and loving. In the higher realms we are all connected, we are all love, we are all one. If you feel the need to ask the pet’s higher self or soul for permission do so but I truly don’t think anything done from such love, care and compassion can ever cause harm.
