Can you do tapping for alcoholism and genetics? This is the second of a three-part series on alcoholism with EFT master practitioner and instructor Deborah Lindsey.  Here, Deborah discusses the important role that genetics can play in alcoholism and how EFT can be used to heal past trauma that leads to addictive behaviors even when it occurred in previous generations!



Transcript: Tapping for Alcoholism and Genetics

Hey, guys. Deborah Lindsey here and I’m bringing some practitioner’s tips for EFT practitioners trying to help really raise the bar on the quality of the practitioners that are out there. So I’m going to give you some tips from what I’ve learned in my, what, 17 years of working with clients. So I want to talk today a little bit more about alcoholism. So the thing about alcoholism that people don’t really think about is that we have a really strong genetic component going on here.

So sometimes what you have to do is you have to get a little fancy. You have to go in and start working on the memories or the codes in the genetic code. OK, so this is a little advanced for some of you, but others are going to know immediately what I’m talking about. So you might want to go in and say, even though I have this genetic predisposition to alcoholism, I love, accept and forgive myself. And then you and I erase that information now.

Or you can also go in and tap on. Even though my mother was an alcoholic, even though my father was an alcoholic, even though my ancestors were alcoholics. And remember, when you’re dealing with ancestral issues, it often goes back as far as seven generations. Now, the last three generations are going to be your big issue. So sometimes what you have to do, as crazy as it seems, but if you’re in there doing this work, you know that a lot of this stuff seems crazy, but still works so well you might want to do is find the trauma in the ancestors.

Right. So maybe Mama was raped. Maybe, you know, you have people who had highly traumatic immigration experiences or refugee experiences of your experiences, something that sort of triggered them that that stays with them in the DNA. And if you can go back and tap on them, sometimes you’ve got to do that surrogately, you know, often have to do a surrogately. And because, you know, these ancestors are are no longer here, but the essence of them still exists, whether it’s, you know, whatever you believe.

So you tap on the ancestors and you can have this person be a surrogate for that. And when you do that, you clear out that trauma in the DNA and this person no longer has to work out the trauma of the ancestors. And when they do that, the desire for alcohol often diminishes or goes away, because sometimes it’s just not their issue, as crazy as that seems. It’s not their issue. So it’s issues of their ancestors. And you’ve got to go in and clear that up.
