Hi Everyone,

Claudia Schecter from Canada slammed her finger in a car door and broke it. The pain was excruciating and not even painkillers helped. In this article she tells us how she used EFT to handle the pain. After reading this, you may want to consider EFT as a permanent tool in your First Aid Kit.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

Being an active EFT practitioner I have had the fortune to witness many healing miracles in my practice and with family and friends.  I know EFT can work wonders to release acute stress.  However, I never had the experience with acute new pain.  Acute chronic pain yes, but not with falls or accidents - at least not until recently when I slammed my car door shut on my right index finger.

I do not want to go into the gory details, but I knew when I removed my glove that my finger was broken.  I immediately went to the ER and once I was safely there I nearly passed out.  The pain was so overwhelming, I was sitting in a wheelchair shaking from shock and pain.  The painkillers I was given did not do anything and the only thing I could think of was that I had to balance my energy system and so I started tapping the EFT points.

I did not use any setup.  I did not even use any words.  I just kept tapping until I calmed down and the pain subsided a bit.  This went on for a couple of hours.  Every time a new wave of pain came over me I tapped till it was gone - and then, suddenly, there was no more pain.  I was sent home with opiates and good advice on how to make it through the night, but I had no need to take any medication because I was and still am absolutely pain free! (All I feel is a very gentle warmth, which actually feels very pleasant.)

The next day I was nervous because I had to see a surgeon to decide on the treatment plan . So I started tapping:

Even though I am anxious because I have to see the surgeon and I am afraid of what he may tell me…

Even though I am petrified that the surgeon will hurt me…

Even though I nearly passed out when they examined me last night and I do not want to go through this again...

Even though I am afraid they will have to sew my finger...

The visit went very well so now I started tapping  on the actual accident.

Even though I was afraid to take off my glove after I slammed my finger...

Even though I cringe when I think of what my finger looked like after taking off the glove...

Even though I still cringe when I think of what my finger looked like after taking off the glove... (I still tap on this one a bit)

Even though my body gets tight when I visualize that finger…

I am feeling great and I am so grateful to have this tool.  Thank you, Gary , for all the dedication you have put into EFT.  I hope this article will help reminding people to just tap when in any kind of emergency.  You can use the set up phrases and the repeats on the points once the crisis is over.

Best wishes,

Claudia Schecter, NHC
