Remembering Pat Carrington

Written by: Nick Ortner

I’m feeling both sadness and joy in my heart as I share with you the news of the passing of our dear friend and mentor, Dr. Patricia Carrington.

The sadness is obvious when we lose someone we love. The joy is often harder to find, but I think in Pat’s case, at the wonderful age of 95 with decades of incredible contributions to the world and to our field, we can together celebrate her life.

If you’re not familiar with the work of Dr. Carrington, she was one of the original true thought leaders in the field of energy medicine, actually using Tapping in the ’80s and leading its spread!

She’s the originator of the “Choices Method”, which I still use daily and include in many of the meditations we release. When I first met her in 2007 while filming The Tapping Solution documentary, she was 83 years old and sharp as can be! A true testament to this work.

I thought this morning about how we could best honor Pat, and I think she would like nothing more than for her work and her message to continue to spread and be seen by others. So I’m sharing that original video interview from 2007.

You’ll find it chock-full of wisdom and insights that you can apply to your own life today.

Also, Pat had struggled financially for the past couple of years after being defrauded by her assistant, and it was THIS community that raised over $50,000 to support her.

I can tell you definitively that that money made her last year very different from what it might have been otherwise – so THANK YOU!!

I also just got word that Pat’s family still requires some help with funeral expenses, so if you find it in your heart to help, you can certainly do so here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/94year-old-psychologist-defrauded

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!

    Thank you Nick , for your generosity in always sharing your wisdom. This interview with Dr Patricia Carrington, I am sure, has opened new hope, for the future for humanity.
    May She Rest In Peace 🙏🙏

  2. Suzanne says:

    Nick, as soon as you heard about Pat being defrauded, you immediately took action and started a fundraiser for her. I am eternally grateful. Again, thank you! She would always add the phrase with grace + ease when she was working with me. I’d say that is how she left this realm and went onto the next. She will be greatly missed. ❥

    Thank You Nick, For sharing this wonderful video.

  4. Mary Ellen Young says:

    Thank you, Nick, for sharing this wonderful tribute. So sad that her assistant, whom she trusted, took advantage of her. May she Rest In Peace🙏

  5. Nicholas says:

    I nearly always use her “positive” phrases “I choose to (allow my body, release this… etc)” in the final part of EFT sessions and think it is a wonderful addition to the procedures. Our interior ‘voice’ has no cover comeback to this.

  6. Isabella says:

    Thanks, Nick, for sharing this fitting tribute to a lovely lady. May she rest in peace.

  7. Lynda says:

    My condolences to you and the entire Tapping Solutions family & extended community. Thank you for sharing this interview–most inspiring and enlightening!

  8. Suzette says:

    Condolences…. and thank you for this interview… I do y when I’m in a severe state of anxiety, this reminds me to use tapping more frequently…

  9. Kelly says:

    Pat Carrington was a pioneer in the choices method and the way she delivered EFT. She was a lovely lady and I’m really sorry to hear that she passed but also that she was ripped off by her assistant. Love and light to her and her family.

  10. Mary Ellen says:

    I am SO happy I heard her speak and even know who she is! So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a great lady and made a definite contribution to the world.

  11. EDITH says:

    My picture is up but not my comments. What an amazing presentation by an amazing woman. I have tried EFT a couple of years ago. I am in the state of grief and I plan to get back to it.

  12. Dawn says:

    What a wonderful lady she was with such a gentle way of speaking her truth. After what has been a challenging week for me, that was truly inspirational. A very sad loss, bless her soul. Thank you for sharing.

  13. jerry says:

    What a beautiful soul she is, indeed! I’m sure she’s chillin with Wayne, Jerry, Louise & many others!

  14. Georgina says:

    I really enjoyed her talk. A reminder for me to check this out more & start using. Yes the Medicine of the future will be more about energy & vibration. We are more than just these bodies & Pat has left her body & returned to a Higher Dimension. A great practice to help you understand & know you are more than this physical form is Spring Forest Qigong.

  15. Divina says:

    Sorry to that loss . Very powerful information and great legacy. Thank you

  16. Jud says:

    Oh wow! That choices thing really opens things up for me! From the very start, I found the standard statement … trying, at best. I even inquired of one practitioner about it and their only suggestion was that I “tap on it”. This choices option, well, that really sets me free to fully apply tapping!!!
    Dr. Patricia Carrington, noted and appreciated! With joy. 🙂

  17. Ghislaine Bochi says:

    so very sorry for your loss…. may her knowledge continue to all and help!

  18. John says:

    I’ve heard this interview before….but had no idea Pat had been defrauded! How did it happen to such an intelligent woman? Are funeral expenses, etc.. covered. I wish I’d known about this and I would have contributed something to help her. What a horrible fate for this woman who did so much good, but thank God for The Tapping Solution, which I belong to even if don’t check in too often. Thanks for your assistance to a fine woman and practitioner.
