Hi Gary,

I've had some training in kinesiology, NLP, and hypnotherapy and had done work with another energy based process called Emotional complex clearing. But I'll tell you what, this EFT stuff is the best thing I've ever found! After reading the book through once, I started reading through a second time and last Sunday started to practice what I've learned from the book and from your web site. And by the way, an incredible web site it is! Thank you so much for all the trouble you go to for us all.

I'm very intrigued with the "power of intention" element associated with EFT. Last Sunday night I decided to try it on my two younger children. Sara is three, and Lucas is five. Both have developed a cough that seems to get worse at night after they're in bed. My wife and I are attempting to handle it the old fashioned way, with medicine, etc. But I wanted to try EFT this time.

I stood in the kitchen and could hear both of them coughing. I focused on each one individually and tapped myself while focusing on each one, calling them by name. Within fifteen minutes I was headed for bed and it was very quiet in their rooms. I just smiled. Of course I have no way of knowing if what I did caused them to quiet so quickly, but I do enjoy believing so.

GC COMMENT: I, too, have no way of knowing if your "intentional EFT" did the trick here. It could have been coincidence. What I don't think is coincidence, however, are the numerous reports of success using these "way out there" intentional procedures. I have done it myself on several occasions.

JIM CONTINUES: Another experience was with my wife. We had a bit of a disagreement the other day before she left to take care of some business. While she was gone, I decided to tap myself clear. I felt an immediate shift in my emotional state. Quite blissful.

Later my wife came back, clearly agitated at me for our disagreement. I wanted to hold her, which made it clear to her I was no longer upset, but she was not interested. I told her I cleared myself while she was gone. She stopped , leveled an eye at me and said, "How? Show me." I walked up to her and rubbed "even though I have this anger, I deeply and completely accept myself." Then I tapped "this anger".

I stepped back and watched as she stood there, her eyes shifting back and forth as if to search for something she'd lost. After about fifteen seconds , she looked at me, walked up to me and put her arms around me. We just held each other for about a minute, then she said "I was stuck, and I couldn't get out of it. This is amazing!" I had to agree. It would have taken hours for us to get over just being awkward around each other, let alone intimate. It was magic!

GC COMMENT: Although this is basically using EFT to unload some aggravations, I think it points the way to extraordinarily useful procedures for couples counseling and enhancing romance.

JIM CONTINUES: One more experience, then I'm done. I hope you'll believe me 'cause it left me flabbergasted!

For the last three months or so my teeth have been extremely sensitive to anything cold. To the point of bringing tears to my eyes on many occasions. This made enjoying a simple meal very difficult to say the least. So about three days ago, as I sat eating my lunch, which was causing me to wince and torque almost uncontrollably from unbearable pain because of the cold tomatoes in my sandwich, I was reading my EFT book when it occurred to me that on your web site I read that people were treating physical conditions with EFT. So I thought "what if?"

I set my sandwich down and went through the short sequence three times. It took me less than five minutes. Then, with some trepidation, I picked up my sandwich and took a bite. I started to chew, and as I did, my eyes began to get wide. The more I chewed, the wider they got. I swallowed, and took another bite. This time I chewed, my eyes got wider, and I began to laugh! And I chewed and I laughed, and laughed and chewed. It was gone! What had been a 10+ on the SUD scale was now a one or two. Life is good again! EFT truly is the magic I've been looking for. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful gift.
