The Trauma of Braces and FasterEFT


It’s unfortunate that all three of our kids will be braces bound at some point in their lives. Our oldest has done her time and is finally free. This past week, our youngest, not quite 11, had to get the first phase of his braces on. The treatment will be extensive, starting with braces just on the top set of teeth and ending with head gear quite a bit down the line.

Saying that he was unhappy by this plan is an understatement of epic proportions. When I first told him what the orthodontist’s plans were, the poor kid broke down and sobbed while laying all over me. The day of getting the braces on wasn’t much better. There were tears galore, even while he was in the orthodontist’s chair. The poor dental tech didn’t know what to do. I was sitting beside him, trying to calm him down and tapped on him while saying that he was going to be okay. I could tell that he had all sorts of emotions boiling up and running rampant in his brain.

Poor kid spent the next day, lying on the couch, feeling nauseated and in pain due to his teeth. He wasn’t really eating much due to both of these issues. He had a birthday party to go to the next day, so he actually consented to try tapping when I pointed out that he wouldn’t be able to go if he was feeling this bad.

It wasn’t pure FasterEFT because he wasn’t really wanting to be an active participant, so there was no SUD value, and only a few “take a deep breath, let it out and say Peace” but I could tell that it was having an effect. As I am pretty in tune with how my kids think, emotionally speaking, I was able to “release and let it go” to quite a few of the issues I knew he had.

  • Anger
  • Saddness
  • Helplessness
  • Unfairness
    • Not fair that he had to have it done before his older brother.
    • Not fair that he didn’t have a choice at all.
  • Holding emotions in his stomach
  • Hopelessness (I’m never going to get these braces off)

I know it had an effect on him as I was doing it as he looked like he was going to fall asleep at one point. When we were done, he still felt nauseous. Luckily, we had the bucket with us when we went upstairs for bedtime because he promptly threw up when we got into his room.

Once he got it out of his system, he was basically back to normal mood-wise. He seemed happy and wanted to have something to eat. The next morning he was extremely animated and definitely back to himself. The nausea was totally gone and he didn’t need any motrin for his tooth pain.

We had a good giggle about the fact that we didn’t realizing that “Release and Let It Go” would result in him puking his guts out – the ultimate in releasing and letting go! While I don’t necessarily think that the two were related, you can never tell! 😀

FasterEFT, Here I Come!

On my way!

I’ve done it! I’ve taken my test and sent it in for FasterEFT Level 1 certification. It feels so go to be on my way and, honestly, I probably wouldn’t have gotten here with this determination if I wasn’t part of an awesome coaching group. The accountability and support of the ladies in this group has really helped me realize that this is something that I just can’t not do. That sounds odd, doesn’t it. Something that you just can’t not do. That overwhelming knowing that this is what you are meant to do and, no matter the obstacles, you NEED to make it happen.

I feel that way about FasterEFT. Plain and simple. It meshes so nicely with my personal belief system and it works astoundingly well to help you release those repetitive harmful beliefs that seem to really mess up your plans on a regular basis. I can definitely see that it will be of major help to those out there that follow Abraham-Hicks because it will help you get rid of those speed bumps that slow you down from getting to where you really want to be. They way Abraham says to get up the emotional scales *does* work, in time, but you have to use a lot of mental power to stay on the path of thinking better thoughts. FasterEFT actually removes the stumbling blocks allowing you to install the more positive, helpful, beliefs that get you where you want to be much more quickly.

So, now I wait to see if I passed the test. I think I did pretty well on most of the questions, but there were two that I don’t think I understood correctly. I did the extra credit so hopefully that will balance out the score. As I really believe in this healing modality, even if I were to not pass, I would go back and take it over again until I did. I want to be able to effectively help myself, my family and anyone else who is looking for a happier, less childhood induced drama filled, life. Test results to come. Wish me luck! 😀

FasterEFT Tap Along – Abandonment

There is something about tapping along with someone else’s “problem”. It is so easy to put yourself right in the middle of the tapping and release issues you didn’t even know were so powerful.

I know I have abandonment issues that started from birth and rolled throughout my life. I found this video to be very cathartic in releasing some pretty strongly held beliefs I’ve held.

If you have any abandonment issues in your past, I highly suggest you grab a box of tissues and tap along! This video could help you move rapidly along to discovering your own peace.


In addition to all his awesome YouTube videos, Robert Smith has some awesome products that you can purchase to teach yourself FasterEFT and discover your peace as you go.

It’s All About Which Wolf You Choose

My husband send me a link to this comic today and, as law of attraction would have it, the subject matter is what I have been seriously focusing on as of late.

The original is posted on If you are on facebook, you can like there here.

A fight is going on inside of me.

It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

One is evil. He is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority …. and ego.

The other is good. He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion …. and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you.

And inside every other person, too.

Which wolf will win?

The one you feed.
