Borrowing Benefits hastens the healing of mystery thumb sores

EFt Tapping Outdated ImageNote: This is one of 3,000 articles written prior to the updated Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial™. As a result, it is likely outdated. It provides practical uses for EFT Tapping but you should also explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT, by reading our free e-book, The Unseen Therapist™, and/or get help from a Certified EFT Practitioner.

Judy Casey attended our Chicago workshop on Serious Diseases and, during the workshop, Borrowed Benefits by tapping along with our specially designed videos. In the process, a chronic bleeding thumb (origin unknown) healed up much faster than normal. This is her story.

By Judy Casey

Hi Gary,

You asked me to email you a scenario on my thumb or skin dis-ease.

I have had this problem for 2 years. The skin on my thumb (sometimes both thumbs) and my eye lids begin to flake and peel away. Many times, when the peeling starts, I get deep cracks in the sore and they actually bleed. I haven't been to a doctor because I don't want to take any drugs.

I just try to protect the skin with Band-Aids. (not on my eyes of course). It usually takes a week and sometimes 2 weeks for the cracks to close.

When we arrived at the conference in Chicago on Sunday, I had 2 open and painful sores on my left thumb and a scab on my left eye lid. After all of the Borrowing Benefits on Monday night , I noticed that my thumb was much better.

The pain had stopped and the cracks were almost closed. On Tuesday, when you asked if anyone had a noticeable difference, I looked at my hands and saw that the cracks were completely closed. The scab on my eye lid was also gone but that could have been just a coincidence.

Since being home, the thumb sores have reoccurred, but not as severe. When I observed that the sores were beginning, I started tapping with more regularity. Within 24 hours, they closed again. I have tried tapping on possible reasons (core issues) for this condition, but apparently, I haven't found them yet. So I often tap on "even though I don't know why I have......." I'm probably missing the key crescendo, but I'll find it.

GC COMMENT: One possible approach here is ask two companion questions: (1) When did you first notice this problem? and (2) What was happening emotionally about that time? These questions can lead to important core issues.

Thank you ,
