“Hi, my name is Maria Luisa and I am 58 years old. I found EFT earlier this year in February 2017 through my daughter – Sandra is my daughter. At the time I had lots of health problems – Yes, I had because I do not have them anymore! I was deemed invalid years ago and sent home unable to work. I had arthritis, and took cortisone every six months, among many other medications and diseases.
Wanting to help me, Sandra called me on Skype and convinced me to do an EFT session. She said it was like a game. I thought she was just playing, and it turned out to be a very positive game. To me, it’s a tool, “a gun” to help us in our personal lives. Sandra did some exercises, and I felt better straight away. I was in Portugal and she was in Mexico studying, learning EFT at the time. I had heard about this technique too, on television, but I didn’t know Sandra was learning about it at the time. Then Sandra and her brother flew me to Mexico, under the pretence to meet my granddaughter. But, what Sandra really wanted to do was to work on improving my health. It was amazing.
Today, I can tell the world, it was a true rebirth. It set free my inner child who was a prisoner of all my traumas, and depressions. Things that had never been worked, only through chemicals. And I had spent a whole life taking chemicals to help me, but they never helped. Or, they helped, but they didn’t heal. EFT helped me removing my blocks. For me, it’s a great tool. It balances our spirit and it aligns our mind, our thoughts. Our head commands our bodies, and sometimes that’s a very complicated thing to do. Sometimes there’s so much going on it gets the traffic stuck, and then we have a problem. Then another and another. And I was that person.
Through doing therapies with Sandra in the month and a half I spent in Mexico, I realised there were lots of things stuck inside me and they were released. Now, instead of taking pills, I do EFT. And only if it’s something very complicated that I cannot deal with alone, then, I look for my therapist. (laughter) Now, I meditate, and tell myself in the mirror, “Hi Luisa, I love you,” before greeting anyone else. I send more positive energy to others, and I do not absorb as much negative energy anymore. There’s still a lot to work on. It’s important to keep feeding our spirits.
With faith, the alternative therapies, positivity and by keeping our channels clean we can live our lives, and life will smile at us. I adore and love my daughter’s work, and I am a happy and blessed mother. I am profoundly grateful to God and to the Universe that my daughter is on this path. She is trying… no, she is not trying… She is helping people. She is helping the world in a healthy way, just through her changes. It’s wonderful how we can inspire people, and our own family through our own changes.
When I arrived from Mexico, everyone asked me, “You look so good. What did you do?” I was a little ashamed and embarrassed because so many people around me were ready to make fun of me and criticising the alternative therapy world. But their negative words were the words aimed at themselves, not at me. I feel strengthened now. When I bumped into my acupuncturist on the street, he said, “Hi, I have not seen you for long, I can see you are walking much better now. What happened?” And I told him.
I left the world of chemicals. That world of pharmacy and medications serious injuries our bodies. I was all bloated, and there were many pockets of liquids being retained within my body, and in my knees. I know they want to make their money, but those chemicals were creating other diseases. I already felt that. I know eating well is fundamental, with less “flours” and less dairy, more omega and more potassium for those with problems like I had. I have learned a lot. Sometimes it’s hard to put things in practice, but with help from “my” Sandra, my therapist, I found the support I needed. But I know she’s in her path, and now I must be independent and do these things for myself. Sometimes I have doubts, but I know I can help those around me too. It has been known to happen. And all of this I owe to my daughter and to the Universe because she is crossing onto a different lifestyle.
And I still would like to add something else. Don’t afraid. When you do this for the first time, there’s a lot of fear and negativity. Many people are not open or receptive, although there’s a lot of openness too. You must feel the openness, feel the peace, feel what you have, feel the tranquillity. Feel. Feel. Feel. You must feel profoundly. Feel. Feel. Feel. Open your spirit, your soul, and your mind. Feel grateful. Then, you will live a life with quality, and that’s wonderful.”
