It’s 3 am. You are awake, and you HURT. Alone in the dark, trying to rest, exhausted from the pain… where can you turn at this hour? All these negative emotions flare up and start rambling around inside your head… “I’ll never get better … Why me?! … What did I do to deserve this? … What if it never gets better?”
I’ve been there… too many times.
Hi, my name is Rick Wilkes, and I co-created the program Pain Relief with EFT with Carol Look because I know what it is like to have maxed out the pain meds and still desperately need relief. I know what it is like to be stuck in a vicious cycle and not see a way out.
It is so easy to be distressed, depressed, and full of despair. Pain gets to us. Once pain overwhelms our coping skills, we cross over from “having pain” into SUFFERING. And that’s where the situation gets really bad.
You want to reach for help. But who? Or what? I mean, late night infomercials just ain’t gonna cut it when the suffering gets intense.
What if relief is right at your finger tips… if only someone would show you how?
When I found Energy Tapping (EFT) for myself back in 2003, it worked so well for my pain that I was initially INCENSED that it had been around for a decade, tens of thousands of people like me were using it daily, and I had suffered needlessly through way too many long nights… when a few minutes of guided tapping could have brought me such relief!
If you’re in pain now (or love someone who is), what I can tell to you from personal experience is that this “tapping thing” is a potent form of self-healing. Isn’t it worth a try?
Here’s how it works at 3 am…
The Pain Relief with EFT program is like a special kind of medicine chest… a Vibrational Medicine Chest. Perhaps you remember the song Good Vibrations? Well, when we’re suffering, our vibration is far, far from good. So, at 3 am you take a deep breath, pick the vibration that matches how you feel, and follow along as Carol and I gently walk you through the simple tapping exercise. It takes only a few minutes.
I found tapping to be so incredibly useful that I studied it extensively. I traveled and learned from masters like Carol Look. Over the past seven years I’ve introduced tens of thousands of people to the power of tapping through my coaching work and websites. In my professional experience, those who learn tapping also learn how to self-manage their pain at a level they never imagined possible.
It’s 2 pm on a Saturday. You are home alone (again) while everyone else is out enjoying life. You don’t have the energy to fight through the pain and pretend to enjoy the social chit-chat. You are in that awful state of boredom combined with intense suffering. You are tired of making excuses, and you’re worried that your friends and family are going to give up on you. That fear makes you tense… which only makes the pain worse.
Instead of being frustrated and stuck where you are, what if you used this time to clear some of the chronic negative emotions and fears? What if 5-20 minutes of your time could shift how you feel about yourself, your situation, and your future… or at the least allow you to rest more deeply?
“Rick Wilkes and Carol Look’s new program Pain Relief with EFT allows you to tap into the experience and insight of two of the best pain relief specialists. They take you through the process of releasing the emotional blocks that keep you stuck and hinder the body’s ability to move toward well-being. Listening to the audio recordings or reading the e-book brings you into a world where the problems are much clearer. Subconscious beliefs are shown with clarity and compassion as they are released. New, healthier beliefs take their place, and you find resilience and relief.” -Cathy Vartuli, PhD
It’s 1 pm on Thursday. You are at work. Your pain is making it hard to focus, and you really need to finish this project. You take a deep breath. What do you do?
You could struggle through (like you’ve always done in the past), but you know you don’t do your best work when you feel this way. Instead, you decide to use the new techniques you’re learning in Pain Relief with EFT. You tune into your body for relief guidance (we show you how). Then you quickly skim the list of limiting beliefs from the program, and one pops out at you.
Even though you didn’t realize it consciously until now, part of you felt worried that you weren’t good enough to be successful with this project. You listen and tap along for less than 5 minutes as Carol guides you through tapping on Limiting Belief #15: I Can’t Do Anything Right.
You notice that the urge to procrastinate is gone. The positive tapping at the end of the recording helps you feel more upbeat. Your energy is now vibrating in a way that gives you an improved ability to focus on your project.
You start feeling calmer. Your pain isn’t nearly as bad. You take a deep breath, maybe get a drink of water, and decide you can do the project one small step at a time. Perhaps you take breaks to tap a few more times when you feel a bit overwhelmed or impatient or anxious (the program has recordings for all of these emotional states… and more), and after the tapping you are able to complete more than you expected. (Some parts of the work are even enjoyable… for a change!)
You finish your work for the day and go home, knowing that you were productive, that you will have a lot more energy and love for your family (rather than bringing home an exhausted, frustrated, and grumpy self), and most importantly, that you took another step along the road to well-being!
