Trauma is different from most of the other  psychological problems for which I've developed algorithms. While most disorders are irrational or unrealistic ( for example, people with phobias generally recognize that their fear doesn't make sense), trauma is perfectly understandable. When a traumatic event or situation occurs -- such as a rape or the death of a loved one in accident -- a psychologically disabled response is not surprising, and is even normal. Why wouldn't you be terribly upset or "traumatized" when life presents you with this kind of shock? 

No matter what the trauma, Thought Field Therapy (TFT) can quiet the storm and allow you to go on with your life in a positive way.

  Even the most difficult cases can be resolved with TFT. 

  Although Marcia's mother was referred to me by a friend, she was initially very skeptical of TFT. But then I was able to help her rapidly eliminate her own fear of public speaking. That broke down her resistance to having me work with her eight-year-old daughter. She was particularly comforted by the fact that, unlike traditional therapy, TFT does not require an individual to talk about and relive difficult experiences. 

I had two TFT sessions with Marci. We began by eliminating the fears she had developed over the years. Then we eliminated the perturbations related to the sexual abuse itself. When we were done, Marcia was visibly much more relaxed. In the ensuing weeks and months, her mother told me that Marcia had become comfortable around people and was no longer afraid to go into certain parts of their home. When I last spoke with her mother, two years later, Marcia was still doing very well. 

  Remember, the following TFT algorithms will NOT extinguish the memories of the trauma you've experienced. You'll still remember everything that happened. But these algorithms will collapse the perturbations that were seared into the Thought Field during the terrible event and that are responsible for the symptoms that have disrupted your life for so long. The memories won't have the emotional power they once did.

It is important for you to eliminate the pain that is making it so difficult to get on with your day-to-day life. Now, TFT can eradicate all traces of that emotional turmoil associated with troubled relationships -- and do it in minutes.

Following are four algorithms for trauma. The first will work for most people and is designed for 1. "simple trauma." Start with this algorithm. It could collapse your perturbations and reduce the SUD to 1. If it doesn't, however, then move on to the most appropriate of three algorithms for "complex trauma" : 2.complex trauma, 3. complex trauma with anger, or 4. complex trauma with guilt.


1. Tune the Thought Field -- that is, intentionally think about the traumatic event that produces such emotional distress in your life. 

2. Rate you distress level at this moment, using the Subjective Units of Distress (SUD) scale. On this scale, 10 is the worst you could possibly feel, and 1 indicates absolutely no trace of upset. Write down the SUD rating before you continue to the next step.

3. Using two fingers of one hand, tap a spot at the beginning of the eyebrow, just above the bridge of the nose. tap five times, firmly and gently, not nearly hard enough to bruise or hurt, but solidly enough to stimulate the energy flow in the system. 

4. Tap the "collarbone point." To locate it, take two fingers of either hand and run them down the center of the throat to the top of the center collarbone notch. This is approximately even with the spot where a man would knot his tie. From there, move straight down an additional inch. Then move to the right one inch. Tap this point five times. 

5. Take a second SUD rating and write it down. if the SUD has decreased 2 or more points (which will be the case for most people), then continue with step 6 below. If there was no change, however, or if the change in the SUD was only 1 point, perform the correction for a psychological reversal, using the technique  described in this post(CLICK HERE). Then repeat step 1 through 5.

6. Perform the nine-gamut treatments. Locate the gamut spot on the back of the hand, about an inch below the raised knuckles of the ring finger and little finger when making a fist. begin tapping the gamut spot with two fingers of the opposite hand, about three to five times per second, and continue tapping while performing all nine steps below ( tap five or six times for each of the nine-gamut positions). It is very important to tap the gamut spot throughout all nine of these gamut treatments:

G1~ Open the eyes.
G2~ Close the eyes.
G3~ Open the eyes and point eyeball down and to the left.
G4~ Point the eyeballs down and to the right.
G5~ Whirl the eyeballs around in a circle in one direction (clockwise).
G6~ Whirl the eyeballs around in the opposite direction (counter clockwise).
G7~ Hum a few bars of any tune aloud (more than a single note; rest the eyes).
G8~ Count aloud from one to five.
G9~ Hum the tune again.

7. Tap the spot at the beginning of the eyebrow again. Tap five times, firmly and gently.

8. Tap the collarbone point five times again.

9. Take still another SUD rating and write it down. If it has declined to 1 (which will happen with most people), move to step 10 below. But if it has decreased significantly yet is still not a 1, perform the mini PR correction as described in Chapter 4 (see page 85), and then repeat the treatment steps above.

10. To ensure that the improvements you've made are complete, perform the floor-to-ceiling eye roll (when the SUD is 2 or lower): Hold the head level and move your eyes down. Then begin tapping the gamut point as you move your eyes upward.
