QUESTION: If I get over my fear of heights by using EFT, will I tend to go near the edge of a dangerous precipice or an open window and lean out too far? Isn’t fear self-protective?
ANSWER: Fear is self-protective and a necessary part of life, but that useful part of fear is never lost through EFT. What EFT takes away is unreasoning fear and panic, and this leaves you much better able to cope with any difficult or even dangerous situation. Panic disorganizes us and clouds our thinking. Calmly focusing on the danger, as occurs after we rid ourselves of the irrational fear, allows us to be at our very best and cope with the danger most effectively.
