  1. Thank you Deborah, it was very good and I needed that, because I am not on talking terms with my children. And of cause I want to help them. Now I have closed there appearense on my face book site, so that I don’t need to help them every time I see their names. Thank you.

    Deborah, first I want to extend my condolences and compassion to you. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my brother to suicide and almost lost my son, but he was able to shift his perspective at precisely the moment of truth. It was a gift to both his older brother and me to be present at that moment. I will never forget it.

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom in the face of such deep sadness. I identify with your statement that many of us want most to help heal those we love. It has been humbling to learn as a mother that I cannot change the journeys (or choices) of my adult children but at times, I still try.

    My mom used to say that I was born wanting to save the world and although I know on a conscious level that I cannot, I sometimes find myself wanting to do just that! I am certain that your words will resonate often in my heart as I share the healing power of EFT.
    Love and gratitude,

  3. First off I would like to say sorry for your loss Deborah, it hard to lose someone you love, especially family, and it’s even harder when they don’t want to be helped, because it can leave you feeling helpless.

    Your post is full of so many messages and important information. I won’t address them all, but I want to say is that is so true what you said about family, but I think it also goes for all people, in the sense that we never truly and fully know anyone, unless they choose to show us all aspects of themselves, which I believe is very rare. And far as helping family in a professional capacity I think it is unwise, because there are so many different levels to the relationship and in the end I think it could get very messy and it could jeopadize and negatively impact the relationship, so I would always refer family out to collegues.

    Another point that I thought was important is knowing your own limits within the helping relationship, which for me means being as self aware as I can be and question myself periodically if I still feel I am able to help my client. I believe that if you know you are no longer being of service to them then it is time to refer them on to someone else, because as much as we would like to help eveyone we can’t help all the people all of the time.
