Hi Everyone,

This impressive result by Joann Skywatcher not only changed the life of a 3 year old but it was also done surrogately. JoAnn gives us the details and concludes with, "In a few moments, my goddaughter had gone from terrified and whiny to delighted and excited."

Hugs, Gary

Kamala is a sweet little three-year-old girl who happens to be my goddaughter. She has beautiful blue eyes just like her mother, Kristin. Last week, I took my granddaughter, Tessa, and met up with Kristin and Kamala at a toddler's swim class. After the class, we went into the hot tub, and then Kristin suggested that we all go play in the outside pool.

It was a gorgeous day and the outdoor pool water felt deliciously warm. We happily shared the pool with a senior water exercise class, women rhythmically moving their bodies across the pool. Kristin and our little ones hung out near the steps in the shallow water. Tessa and I played together, counting to three, before I threw her as high in the air as I could. When she splashed down, I followed her under water. With our eyes open and huge grins, we swam up to the surface. Kristen tried to coax Kamala out into the deeper water. But Kamala, who was whining, didn't want to move off the step. Her mother kept saying, "Don't worry, Kamala, you will be safe."

I asked Kristin if it would be OK to do EFT on Kamala and she nodded.  Deciding that getting Kamala to tap probably wouldn't work, I chose to do some surrogate tapping. Looking into Kamala's eyes, I said,

Even though I am Kamala and I don't want to get all wet, I am an OK kid.

Even though I am afraid of the water, I am an OK kid.

Kamala told me that she didn't want to get her face wet. I added that to the set-up phrase:

Even though I don't want to get my face wet, I am an OK kid.

Then I started tapping the points on my body and it only took one round and Kamala changed her stance. She started laughing. Then all four of us were counting to three as Kristin and I tossed our little ones into the air. Kamala went under water and got her hair wet, doing so without any fear!  Kamala and Tessa kept screaming at the top of their lungs, "Again, again!!!"

In a few moments, my goddaughter had gone from terrified and whiny to delighted and excited. Once again, EFT came through.
