73: How EFT Can Change Your Life with Ann Hince

When Ann Hince was 19, she woke one morning to find her mother dead in her bathroom. Twenty years later, the tears from that trauma were still just under the surface. Ann found a simple technique that helped her release these emotions and heal her trauma. 

This week on Breathe In, Breathe Out, Ann shares her journey with EFT (Emotion Freedom Technique) and how it has absolutely changed her life. Ann has found that seeking out our truth, what we truly feel, and accepting those feelings, is the key to inner peace.

Think meditation is hard? Do me a favor, take a slow deep breath in and now breathe out. Congratulations, you just meditated. Hi, I’m Krystal Jakosky, and this is Breathe In, Breathe Out: a Weekly Mindfulness and Meditation podcast for anyone ready to own their own shit and find a little peace while doing it.

Krystal Jakosky: Welcome to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky: and it is just amazing to have you here today. I got to interview Ann hints, who is a fantastic woman who is very much in alignment with me, and how I encourage you guys to dive into your emotions and not just the emotions that are on top, but everything that’s below them. And she has had a wonderful experience with EFT and how it has literally emotionally mentally and physically changed her life. When Ann was 19, she woke up one morning to find her mother dead in her bathroom. 20 years later, the tears from that trauma were still just under the surface. Ann found a simple technique EFT that helped her release these emotions, but she went further and now she can put her awareness inside of her body. She’s also changed the bone structure of her skull and grown half an inch at age 55 and found that seeking out our truth, what we truly feel, and accepting those feelings is the key to inner peace. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed it.

Krystal Jakosky: Welcome back to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky your host, and I’m thrilled that you’re here. This is a fantastic conversation I get to have today with Ann hints and you just get to eavesdrop and learn about fabulous new techniques and, um, ways for self-care. So welcome, Ann. Hello.

Ann Hince: Hi. It’s great to be here. Thanks for having me, Krystal.

Krystal Jakosky: Ah, yeah. I’m, I’m excited to explore. I’m excited for people to connect with you. I’m excited to learn more about you, your journey, and the tools that you have learned to help you process and move forward because you and I are so well aligned in so many different things that we teach. And yet you have an extra tool that I haven’t really used very much, and I’m excited for everyone to learn about that. So will you tell us a little bit about your journey and what brought you here?

Ann Hince: Sure. So I had a lot of, a lot of trauma in childhood, you know, most of us do and I don’t know that was anymore, any less than anyone else, but it was my journey. So I was born with my right foot up against my right shin. So my first six weeks of life were physical therapy. And then I was given over for adoption into a family that had just suffered trauma because they had a two-year-old boy who had been adopted. And then they adopted another little girl and they raised her for six months. And then the birth mother changed her mind, which back then they could do up to six months. And so they had to hand her back and I was the replacement in the family for that. So that was a family already in trauma. Right. I don’t know that my brother ever, he never realized he didn’t know consciously, obviously what had happened, but I don’t think he ever liked me probably because of that.

Krystal Jakosky: yeah. Oh my gosh. That’s huge.

Ann Hince: Yeah. And they would obviously be concerned that my birth mother was going to do the same thing, so they wouldn’t have connected possibly. Plus they had that extra six months, you know, the first six months of a living child’s life is so hard. Yeah. And then they have to do it back to back, so

Krystal Jakosky: Yeah. Oh, wow.

Ann Hince: So that was the beginning.

Krystal Jakosky: Yeah. That’s a lot of trauma to just be brought into in the beginning. Whoa.

Ann Hince: Yeah. And then, um, my dad worked in a company that traveled around the world. So worked for six months when they knew they were gonna keep me, and we moved to Barbados. And then from there, we moved to Sierra Leone in West Africa. And while we were there, we had a house fire. So I was probably around three at the time. And I woke to find the flames coming in through my bedroom wall. So that was a trauma, right?

Krystal Jakosky: Yes.
