Hi Everyone,

Here is a real eye-opener for anyone doubting EFT's use in sports performance. Arden Compton uses EFT and blows the doors off of his previous bowling scores.

Recently I took my family bowling.  The bowling alley here in Brigham City was giving away a turkey to anyone who bowled 3 strikes in a row.  So, off we went to try our luck.  Now, I am not a serious bowler; throughout my life, I have probably gone bowling about once a year ... maybe less.  I usually bowl somewhere between 100 and 120.  If I get over 120, it is a good game for me - if I get into the 130's - that's a really good game.

So, getting three strikes in a row wasn't likely - I might get 2 or 3 strikes in a game, but not in a row.  In my first frame, I knocked over 8 pins, not bad.  But I thought about how fun it would be to win a turkey and I decided to try some EFT.  On my next turn, as I held the ball in my right hand, I tapped with my left hand on the face points and repeated in my mind, This fear of not making a strike.

It took a little over five seconds to tap through that.  This time I bowled a spare (meaning I knocked all the pins over in two tries), but was only one pin away from getting a strike.  Each turn for the rest of the game, I went through the same tapping process.  The next frame I bowled a strike!  But on my next turn two frames I bowled a spare - I needed three strikes in a row. 

I was feeling pretty good about my game at this point; I was on track to an above-average score for me.  Then the next frame I bowled a strike, and the following frame I bowled another strike!  At this point I did a little tapping before my next turn, there was a little pressure because I was going for the turkey on this one.  I tapped on Fear of messing up the third strike … fear of not getting a strike.  I also tapped five seconds or so after I picked up my ball.  And sure enough, I got a third strike! 

I was so excited, I yelled loud enough for everyone in the bowling alley to hear me, "I won a turkey!"  My wife and kids all gave me high fives.  I ran over to the desk and had all the bowling alley employees give me a high five, there were some friends of mine several lanes down, I ran over to them and had them give me high fives.  So, the next time I got the ball I tapped again, and I got another strike!  Four in a row!  And then I got another strike, and another one, and another one!  Seven strikes in a row by the time the game ended.  I bowled a 236, 100 points beyond what I thought would be a really good game.  Our friends even asked me to come bowl on their lane so I could help them win a turkey.  On their lane, I bowled another strike. 

However, I started having some uncertainty because I didn't think the bowling alley wanted me to win a turkey for other people - thus the next frame I ended the streak with a spare.  I excused that by saying, "The ball slipped from my fingers," which it had, but I am almost certain it was because of those inner doubts about winning a turkey for someone else that I "sabotaged" it.

The statistical probability of me bowling 8 strikes in a row has to be near zero.  EFT really works!  It calms us down, removes doubt and fear, which in turn allows us to perform at the level we are capable of.  Not only can it help with bowling, but every aspect of life - relationships, spirituality, money, professional goals, happiness & peace of mind, and the list could go on and on!  EFT can help with so many things, it is awesome!  When appropriate, try EFT for yourself and others – miracles can happen!
