Two EFT stories from the book Energy Therapy Tapping: the Next Dimension in Healing by Marilyn Gordon

by Marilyn Gordon

A Boy and a Dog

I worked with an eleven-year-old boy who'd been bitten by a pit bull the year before when he was ten. He had developed enormous phobias, and he'd been in therapy and on medication. He was a sweet boy, but his body language showed me that he was cowering with fear. The medication didn't work; nor did other techniques his mother took him to try. His mother brought him to see me, and I told him I'd like to do some tapping on special points while saying certain words about his problem.

First we omitted his fear of rain. He had feared thunder and lightning. The tapping and words removed that fear. His mother said, "Are you sure you don't feel that fear anymore?" The boy said, "Oh yes, I feel happy."

Then we eliminated his morbid fear of dogs - not just pit bulls, but any kind of dogs. After that we eliminated his awful fear of all bugs. He felt uplifted and joyful. His mother was amazed. She told me one week later that they had gone to Disneyland without his medications, and he did splendidly - free from his fears and relaxed.

A Girl and Her Cramps

Not long after that, I went to a fair, and I was walking down a road when a woman came right up to me and with anguish on her face, she said, "Do you have any aspirin or ibuprofen? My daughter has such bad cramps that she can't walk. They just came on suddenly." I smiled to myself that she was guided in my direction, and I told her that I didn't have any aspirin or ibuprofen, but I had something else that we could use: I could tap her with my fingers.

She was ready to try anything, so I went to her thirteen year old daughter and began to tap. Within one round of tapping (less than 30 seconds,) the cramps had more than half disappeared. Within the next 30 seconds, the cramps went away completely. Her parents' faces showed total astonishment. I was thrilled to have a first aid kit in my fingertips.
