Anger Management is a very important skill for returning troops and their families, as well as those who want to help them.
In my experience, rage happens when a person had to endure situations that are unforgivable, inexcusable and that violate what he/she believes in.
I have yest to see a soldier that is not outraged about something that he saw, was exposed to , did or couldn’t prevent from happening.
Even though EFT can take the charge out of those memories, in my experience, there are three steps necessary to truly heal rage:
Acknowledgement of what happened without judgment
Releasing the intensity with EFT tapping
Transformation of the experience, to find a deeper meaning and new purpose.

When helping Veterans, we have to be extremely mindful not to expose them to unintentional triggers. Depending on the trauma that someone has been through, even a change I voice, a picture of a depressed person or certain sounds or smells can trigger flashbacks and intrusive thoughts and cause startling and fear. EFT is an amazing tool to release the intensity of traumatic memories, negative beliefs and even related physical symptoms. However, without insights into the military mindset and world, we are risking exposing veterans to traumatizing situations unknowingly, as well as not reading their signs properly and missing out on important clues that would have helped them better.Read More
If we truly want to help veterans heal, we have to find a way to take the charge out of the memories, not just tranquilize the stress symptoms. Skillful and insightful EFT coaching can often do this in a respectful, gentle and effective way.Read More
I was a driver on convoys in Croatia and Bosnia in early 90’s before the Dayton Agreement. It took 6 years for the PTSD, Combat Stress etc… to go full throttle on my brain, body and soul, the latter being the worst in my opinion. More than fifteen years has past and I am still fucked up, but not nearly as bad. I decided to tap on a panic attack that I had in the middle of the night. After five minutes, I felt no pain, not in my body not in my soul.
I actually fell asleep. I can only say that I tapped my way out of it. Next day, I woke up and had a great day. I am going to continue to tap and free myself from the ghosts that haunt all of us.Read More
I believe that we need to change the way we think about war exposure, and acknowledge that nobody comes back unchanged.
Nobody comes back unchanged – nobody should have to deal with this alone.
In San Diego, I will not only speak about how to use EFT Tapping effectively, which was demonstrated so well in the research that we have and the filming of the documentary in San Francisco.
But I will also put great emphasize on teaching some principals of the military mindset, military values, limitations and open doors.Read More
We need to rethink the support that we offer the Veterans and returning troops, and include helping and supporting those who are currently carrying the majority of the load: The Families, military buddies, friends and community members. New healing techniques that don’t require a background in mental health, but rather focus on the soldier’s description of war trauma as a symptom of the soul are necessary.Read More
When I started offering free services to servicemen and -women, it struck me how low the response was. e as EFT coaches have to earn the trust and respect one person at a time. Knowing EFT alone does not help a Veteran feel safe with us. Understanding the value of honor and sacrifice in the military mindset is extremely important. I have seen Vietnam veterans step forward with astounding courage, once they realized that their healing would help “the guys that are coming home now”. If we EFT Tapping coaches see ourselves on a mission greater than the individual sessions, helping those whose lives have been impacted by war and training, and finding ways to do good for many, then we will be able to communicate this mission easily and get others excited and grateful, too.Read More
