So for EFT to work as well as it can, you need to be tuned in, to be feeling whatever it is as best as you can. This is why working with others can provide the safety and container that we need in order to be able to connect with our hurt. We often "won't go there" on our own.
We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death ~ Leo Buscaglia
