EFT for Motorway Driving Anxiety
Read how Karen Lewis from the UK rapidly reduces a driving anxiety. She did EFT the night before she was to face a driving ordeal and says, "I did the complete Basic Recipe and felt so much better. My level of intensity was 2 out of 10. I decided I'd leave it and see if I needed more the next morning, before we set off. Ordinarily, I would have been chirfing all evening about the forthcoming ordeal, but I barely gave it a thought."

Hi there, Gary,
It always makes life so much easier if you have everything you need to do something, at hand. I think you could say that EFT is an excellent tool in this respect for the task of helping us through our daily lives. When the stresses, strains and anxieties become more than we would like, we can use Emotional Freedom Techniques to improve our outlook, beliefs and attitudes, and thus often our situation.
I had an interesting experience of this just recently. I have inherited my husband's previous company car as my run-
Unfortunately, this garage was not very local and required a trip, albeit short, on the M6 motorway. Those who live in the UK know that in this part of the Midlands this is probably one of the busiest and most congested major roads out there. In the 24 years I have been able to drive, I have been on the M6 once, which absolutely terrified me! Obviously, I would have to drive the car, as my husband had to come along separately so we could get home again. We could go the non-
Just the thought of getting on the motorway was enough to make me feel extremely anxious. I had massive butterflies in my chest and my palms were soaking, and that was the day before, just thinking about it! So I decided it was time for some EFT. I started with a level of intensity of 9 on a scale of 0 to 10.
Even though I am so petrified at going on the M6…
Even though I have these horrible sweaty palms and huge butterflies…
Even though I'm so anxious that I'll have an accident, I choose to believe that I'm a good driver and it should be a doddle. My reminder phrases were petrified of the M6 … sweaty palms … M6 anxiety
I did the complete Basic Recipe and felt so much better. My level of intensity was 2 out of 10. I decided I'd leave it and see if I needed more the next morning, before we set off. Ordinarily, I would have been chirfing all evening about the forthcoming ordeal, but I barely gave it a thought.
The next morning I felt slightly anxious, with a level of intensity of 4 out of 10. One specific aspect was coming up, namely, getting on to the motorway -
Even though the thought of joining the motorway scares me so much…
My reminder phrase was joining motorway. Zeroed.
Time to go. Got in the car -
Once I was on the motorway, I felt such a huge sense of relief, and even more so, of achievement. I'm still not inclined to travel on the motorway unless it's really necessary, but I don't think I shall be so scared and put off by the thought in future. All thanks to the power of EFT. So, many thanks, Gary.
