Hi Everyone,

Brenda Shoshanna's brother was very reluctant to use EFT, but did so anyway. To his astonishment, his frozen shoulder gained complete relief. Here is what Brenda says as her article unfolds, "We kept going. This was exciting. He still couldn't move it completely to the right or left. We tapped on 'Even though my movement is still constricted, I deeply and completely love and accept myself and accept my arm.' He started laughing. I did too. This was fun. This was thrilling. His arm started moving to the left now." Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Here is an amazing and totally unexpected (by me) EFT result. I was introduced to EFT several months ago, and have been progressively tapping and studying your wonderful DVDs. Though I've been trying to do some surrogate tapping, I'd never directly tried EFT on another person.

However, one day, my brother came early to an open house I was hosting. He'd had a painful, frozen shoulder for about 4 months and over this time was constantly telling me how hard it was to lift it at all, how much it hurt and that it was interfering with his sleep at night, waking him in pain. He had done some exercises for it, suggested by a physical therapist, but those exercises only made the condition worse.

My brother knew nothing at all about EFT, except that I had learned about a fascinating technique that was helping me, and I'd been tapping. He didn't really want to hear more about it, as he is usually quite resistant to these kinds of teachings. However, I had a very strong impulse to have him tap on his frozen arm, as he seemed so uncomfortable. I said, "Why not try it just for a little while. There's nothing you can lose, except possibly some of the pain? There are absolutely no negative side effects." As he had been in so much pain for so long, he reluctantly agreed.

I showed him the points to tap and which fingers to tap with. We started tapping on Even though my arm hurts... After a few rounds of tapping, he began to notice the pain decreasing. Excited, he was willing to do more. We then tapped on, Even though a part of me is blocked and frozen ... and I accept the blocked and frozen parts. His face lit up in a huge smile. Right before our eyes, the arm was moving. He looked shocked. Frankly, I was too. It was going way up. Before, he could only barely lift it.

We kept going. This was exciting. He still couldn't move it completely to the right or left. We tapped on Even though my movement is still constricted, I deeply and completely love and accept myself and accept my arm. He started laughing. I did too. This was fun. This was thrilling. His arm started moving to the left now.

He had a moment of fear, saying he was afraid he was cheating, having the pain leave so quickly. We then tapped on, Even though I feel I deserve to be in pain, and have to suffer for a long time ... but I am willing to let this go.

We did this tapping over and over again. In about fifteen minutes total, his arm was completely fine. No pain, a tiny bit of stiffness, (which left a few minutes later), and full movement. Both of us were shocked and thrilled. He didn't know what to make of it. I didn't need to make anything of it. I just felt deep gratitude.

Guests arrived at the party and we told them what had happened. In a little while lots of people started tapping, and I put on one of Gary's DVD's to show everyone what it was about. There was a lot of spontaneous interest and fascination. What a way to start the new year!

My brother's arm has not hurt again, nor has the movement been restricted. In fact, he said he just forgot about what it was like for it to be frozen. He's fine. No follow up needed.

Thank you so much for this amazing method. I use it much more now, spend more time with the DVDs and am sharing it more and more with others, and hope to learn how to do the surrogate tapping more effectively.

Actually, when I'm now involved with someone who is hurting, I don't feel I have the right not to share this.
