EFT and nail biting. A one minute wonder

Hi Everyone,

Addictions, including fingernail biting, often require some detective work to find and collapse underlying emotional causes. Sometimes, however, one or two rounds of EFT will do the job. As you will see, such was the case with a client in Philip Davis's UK workshop.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

I thought I would like to share with you something that happened on a Level 1 course we were giving here in the UK recently.

We were coming up to the first break of the morning and had 10 minutes before the coffee was ready.  So I asked if anyone had an issue they wanted working on, and a lady in her mid-30’s said that she bit her nails and wanted to stop.  Questioning her, she said that she had bitten them all her life.

So, as an experiment, I did one round of EFT on her.  Even though I bite my nails…  I did the complete Basic Recipe exactly as described in the EFT Manual. 

She didn’t bite her nails at all for the remainder of the day.

Some 2 months later, she came back to do the Level 2 course with us.  On the first morning she came up to me and said… “Look!!! (as she drummed her nails on the desk) I haven’t bitten my nails from that day to this.  I have had to learn how to file my nails now!!”     The big grin on her face was priceless.

I love EFT. 

With blessings and love

Philip Davis
