There are always new, and often unexpected ways of using EFT to get over the big and small stumbling blocks in daily life. Here is one of them...
If you have a cat, or even more than one, you know that odor control around the litter box is an issue. All brands of cat litter promise that, but, believe me, there are real differences in effectiveness. I have tried many brands, and some are definitely better than others. So I have been o.k. However, recently I came across a new technology that involves sort of crystals instead of of the sandy, pebbly consistence cat litter usually has. Always looking for improvement in my life, I decided to try out a bag.
When I poured some of it into the litter box, it was quite noisy - and my cat freaked out. He ran away on low legs, ears laid back. That was a day ago, and he has not been in his box since. No amount of coaxing and showing him that it is harmless, helped. Oh my.
Well, again, EFT to the rescue. Try it on everything, right? So I did surrogate tapping for my cat.
I am Bani. Even though there is this scary, noisy stuff in my litter box, and I hate it, I am a good cat.
Even though she cannot possibly expect me to go there, I am a neat, clean cat, and I want to do the right thing
Even though my box is so noisy and it freaks me out, I trust my mama that she wouldn't do anything to harm me.
This noisy, scary box. Does she really expect me to go in there? No way!
This noisy stuff in there freaks me out
I want my old litter back!
Why did she do that? I was just doing fine!
I am so sensitive to noises, and this scares me.
Not going in there, ha!
Only, It's just so uncomfortable to hold it in...
I am a neat, clean cat, and I would never...
Maybe I should try?
Just go and check it out?
Maybe it got less noisy?
My mama would never do anything to harm me, that much I know
O.k. I'll poke my nose in there and check it out
Let's do it!
I am such a courageous cat, it's downright scary!
Testing the work: What can I say. Two minutes later, he used the litter box. And it smells so good.
