Dear Gary,

An EFT'er's work is never done, even on vacation.

I was in a department store buying something I needed for my trip.  I was ready to pay when the salesperson behind the counter was upset and complained of a bad headache.  She called out for a replacement.  While they were coming to release her I asked what her level of pain was on a scale of 0 to 10.  She answered that the pain was an 8. 

With time and a line of people behind me, I just asked her to trust me.  I reached across the counter and began to tap on her, and told her to say "this headache at a level 8."  She looked at me funny but repeated the statement and the pain went down to a 5 out of 10.  We repeated the tapping again with "this pain at a level 5."  She stared at me in shock and said, "It’s gone."  The replacement arrived and the salesperson said, "Don't bother, I'm fine now."  I gave her a card with the EFT website and left.

In Ireland the lady we rented the house from was limping badly.  She was 55 years old and complained of bad knee pain which she had for years.  The next evening I went to her and gave her a treatment.  We tapped for the pain which only went down from an intensity level of 9 out of 10 to a 7 out of 10.  

I asked what emotion was linked to the pain.  She answered, "fear" and told me her daughter of 30 was diagnosed with cancer few years ago.  We tapped for: 

This fear in my knee.

This fear of my daughter’s illness.

This worry about my daughter’s life.

This guilty feeling.

I feel so helpless, and

Even though I may be punishing myself....

The pain went to 0 out of 10.  Two days later I saw her limping again.  She said that she was feeling so good that she went into town and spent the whole day walking around doing errands.  She claimed the pain was only an intensity level of 3 out of 10.  We tapped on her 3 pain and within two rounds it was 0 out of 10 and was still a 0 when I left at the end of the week.

I traveled up to Dublin and visited dear friends.  Maura is 77 years old.  She stated that she had fallen a few months back and had hurt her back, no broken bones.  The pain was at a level 6 out of 10 but when I probed into the tissue the pain scale jumped to a 10 out of 10.  The issues we tapped for were:

This pain.  This anger over this pain.  This frustration over this pain.

Within twenty minutes it was gone.  Even when I probed in deep the pain level remained 0 out of 10.  Even though I had worked on her frozen shoulder on my last visit with great success, she was still amazed at the EFT results.  A week later she called and stated, "I still can't believe it, but it is completely gone.”
