    and it was their first time tapping ...

    and this person was not *prepared* for the intensity of the emotions felt ...

    so this person completely shut the emotion out very quickly ...

    and now does not *feel* anything when tapping.

    The reaction was so quick, and the shut down even quicker ...

    I was so surprised at how fast this went ...

    How do you help someone get past this block?

    I am having a think on this.
    My first reaction, is that it does not matter that she shuts down. Really, If they are willing to tap regardless, then there you go. The shifts will happen. She can guess on theintensity of something, even if she can't feel it in her body.

    You can sneak up on things that re intense for peple by just tapping on the movie title..title of their story..
    like'the time with my father' and instruct them NOT TO GO INTOP THE DETAILS NOT TO WATCH THE MOVIE IN THEIR MIND...
    just tap on the title and see if you can get the intensity down that way.

    HTH!

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    I really appreciate your ideas.

    I was also given another suggestion from someone who is new to EFT, though has been practicing many other energy therapies for years and her suggestion was to always look down with the eyes (without moving the head) because she said by looking down it will engage the emotions.

    Eyes

    Moving the eyes is very interesting --

    If someone is going into a trauma state and their eyes are fixating on one point, I"ve been told and experienced that moving the eyes will help NOT go into a trauma state and will keep things flowing WHILE TAPPING. (that's a good thing)

    And of course the 9 gamut point of EFT (not always shown nor used) has
    different eye movements.

    For one of my clients, she clears as soon as she looks down left.

    So perhaps play with the different eye movements and see what happens ...

    Hugs,
    Deb.

    fabulous, Deborah:)
    the other thing is get her to move her body...seriously and exaggerate her voice...loud, shouting, singing certain things. not only will this change the experience of the traumatic stuff but it will also get her moving and not shutting down.
