As with most phobias, the fear of public speaking tends to develop in response to past experiences, either due to a single traumatic event or through gradual conditioning/association. The fear is then compounded by both negative emotions attached to memories of the past and anticipation/expectation of future poor performance, failure and/or ridicule...
Editor's Note from Pat Lantz: The sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, represents our cyclical and fluctuating moods. It is a defensive and self-protective sign, and connecting with family and place of birth, helps Cancer keep continuity with emotional bonds from the past. Preserving memories and objects from the past is extremely comforting to those with a strong dose of Cancer. Remembering allows them to hold on to experiences and people so that they are never forgotten.
Look to the sign of Cancer, the Moon and 4th house to understand the past, emotional ties and relationship with family.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing
by Mary Louise Chown
Hearing a story is like listening to music, the words falling off the teller’s tongue, onto our ears, and into our heart, setting thoughts and memories in motion. Stories are heard in the deep heart’s core and answer the burning questions that we all have. Who are we? Where did we come from? Who do we love? What have we forgotten that is important to remember?
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In this article, storyteller and mediator Mary Louise Chown reflects on her therapeutic work with story and children. She states: "Children especially need the experience of listening to stories and discovering connections with their own lives. This can strengthen their spirits for when they meet hard times, such as illness or death, or any kind of sadness or disappointment."

Here is the obvious. If you use EFT yourself or with others, you are using the process of memory. If you are seriously doing EFT with others, if you have not yet, then you will run into trauma...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Memory - why is it that you might forget where you left your keys yet a traumatic memory from years past keeps rearing its ugly head? If you have practiced Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) on yourself or employ it as a modality in your health practice, you have probably encountered traumatic memories.
Dr. Craig Weiner helps you understand how trauma alters memories in a simple, concise explanation of the neuroscience behind memory. Knowing how trauma is stored explains how random, seemingly unrelated memories arise during a tapping session. As well, Dr. Weiner explains why the emotional flood gate might open when recalling a past trauma.
