Hi Everyone,

Here's a good example of how many of our issues are related--even when they don't seem that way at first. The article is submitted by Steve Wells and Pat Ahearne from Australia. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

You will recall Pat Ahearne, the baseball player who used EFT to improve his baseball performance and win the Pitcher of the Year Award a few years back (See: ).  Pat is now using EFT to help others achieve peak performance.  He recently sent me this note outlining some work he did with a show jumper.  I think it provides an excellent example of how EFT can often be applied to several related issues to provide relief.  

Best wishes,

Steve Wells


Pat’s note:

I have a cool story to tell you.  I recently worked with Pamela, who rides a horse that does equestrian jumping.  I told her about you being here doing a seminar which she was curious about. Well, I ended up taking that opportunity to introduce her to EFT because she mentioned getting "psyched out" sometimes when she goes to jump her horse.  I saw that she was quite open and ready to do something about this.

We began applying EFT to her feelings of getting thrown in the dirt, losing control of the horse, and tensing up ANTICIPATING the animal spooking.  The results we got were fairly immediate with a lessening of the tension in her body and a feeling of the whole scene "slowing down" for her. These feelings were brought down to zero intensity on a scale of zero to 10, after about 30 minutes of tapping.

Then I told her that there would probably be a carryover or crossover benefit with her work (she works in sales) because the emotions that psyched her out on the horse probably were also present in her work.  So, we did some rounds in that area and there were several exclamations of "Oh my God!" from her.  It turns out she felt the same feeling of getting tossed on the ground by her horse as she did when giving a presentation to potential buyers.  

She said "Oh my God!" again and we got her down to zero level of intensity on both sides fairly quickly.  She said she felt energized "like she just had a cup of coffee" and was positive about making a call she had been dreading.

That afternoon was the immediate test.  She left my place having to make a phone call to a buyer that was cutting their budget.  The dread came from the idea they would cut her piece out as well.  Going into the call without the dread, she ends up having her order doubled!  

Then, later that afternoon, she went out on her horse and had a “natural” ride like she had not experienced in over 8 months.  Her trainer even commented it was the most relaxed and most assertive with her horse he had ever seen her.

Unfortunately, Pamela is also undergoing cancer surgery and treatment.  In working on this, we started first by testing the truth and intensity level of the statement, "I have emotional cancer" which provoked an image of a large, menacing, black mass that was her image of cancer.  This session of EFT brought that from a "black ugly mass" to a white, fluffy and much more playful sort of feeling for her and removed any truth to the statement "I have emotional cancer.”
