Angelika Rinderle-Tessa from Germany gives us a brief, but important, story on how a teacher's angry comment thwarted the math ability of Angelika's 7 year old son. A quick and easy use of EFT solved the problem.

By Angelika Rinderle-Tessa

Dear Gary,

I'd like to share an experience I had with my little son. He is seven years old (in 2nd grade) and has always loved math. But a couple of weeks ago he somehow lost his ability to do even simple calculations. I was puzzled and had no explanation. After a while I had the idea to ask him if his teacher had said anything. It turned out that she got angry with him one day and said "Nobody could do worse at math than you do".

Obviously, he got kind of hypnotized by that statement and fulfilled the "command". We tapped with the teacher's sentence for about 5 minutes. All blocks were gone immediately. Now at school, he taps the karate chop point from time to time whispering: "I'm super and I'll show her!" (his own words). It works. No more problems!

Warm regards,

Angelika Rinderle-Tessa
