Hi Everyone,

Alfiyah Woods from Trinidad & Tobago uses EFT by tuning into herself at 7 months of age and tapping on that little girl's unhealed issues. Success! As Alfiyah says, "Needless to say I experienced such deep relief that I was astounded at the completeness and simplicity of EFT."

Hugs, Gary

Some months ago I visited a therapist who did some regression with me and discovered one of my deep-seated emotional blocks occurred when I was about seven months old.  Apparently I was hurt then and for whatever reasons at the time, my cries for attention went unheeded by the adults around me.  The pain from the neglect was registered so deep within my psyche that it created an emotional neediness within me that attracted the most hurtful experiences in my life.

Because of the psychological work I have been able to do on myself I understand my motivations better but have never been able to get rid of the aching hole in my stomach where I had received the blow as a baby.  Added to that, the ache in my heart over the neglect never went away but would amplify with each painful experience as an adult.

Recently a traumatic encounter with a government official triggered a deep depression.  As usual, the feeling of a profound aloneness with no one around to help overcame me.  What was different this time is that I saw myself as this 7 month old baby wailing quite loudly and no one came to help her.

I was desperate to do something for her and I remembered EFT and the good results that I had with smaller issues like headaches and joint pains.  Loudly I addressed the baby, holding a picture of her distress in my mind, Even though you are hurt and no one is coming to rescue you, you deeply and completely accept yourself.

As I tapped away and identified with the emotions, soon I was crying too and in the throes of the hurt that was meted out to this innocent child.  I was crying profusely but I do not stop tapping.  Then as I approached a second round of tapping I see the baby that is me, stop crying abruptly and look around.  She stopped crying so suddenly that it surprised me, the adult and I too stopped crying.

I continued tapping to the end of the round and I saw the baby sit down in the crib, grab a toy next to her and begin to play with it while making soft gurgling baby sounds.  She looked and smiled happily to herself, utterly contented.  Needless to say I experienced such deep relief that I was astounded at the completeness and simplicity of EFT.

I felt as if a weight had been lifted off my back and a tingly sensation went down my spine.  I have been feeling so much more contented with life since and look forward to seeing how this new feeling of freedom plays out in my life from now on.  I am extremely grateful for the useful work this newsletter is doing. Thank you all.
