Hi Everyone,

JoAnn SkyWatcher successfully applies EFT to two high school students.

Hugs, Gary

I am retiring from my career as a high school art teacher next week, and I will be focusing more of my time and energy on being an EFT practitioner.

Here are two examples of working with some of my students in the last couple of weeks.

One day I noticed a student with a pained look on her face. She said she had an abscessed tooth, and she had forgotten her medication and couldn't concentrate enough to work on her assignment. Her pain level was 8 out of 10.

We used these statements for the first round:
Even though I have an abscessed tooth, I am an OK kid.
Even though I forgot my medication ...
Even though there is throbbing pain up the right side of my face...
Even though they might have to pull the tooth out...

Her pain level dropped to 6/10 after the first round.
The second round it dropped to 4/10.
We used the above statements and "Even though it still hurts...."
I noticed that she made a growling noise. So, I had her continue with the above statements and had her "GURRRR" louder -- which made her giggle.
Even though thought this throbbing pain is still here GURRRRR.

It dropped to a 1/10. One more round brought it to no pain!!!

I listen for little noises that aren't really words and encourage clients to do it louder.

A few minutes later in the same class, Alex asked if I could help him with his batting average which was .280. Class was almost over, and I told him that we had time to do only one round. He was quickly able to tell me the stories that could be making it hard for him to succeed. We used:

Even though I might strike out, I'm an OK kid.
Even though I might be too cocky...
Even though I have had an off-balanced swing...
Even though I might not hit the top...
Even though I'm afraid of swinging and missing...
Even though I've been in a slump...

He tapped and alternated reminder phrases (and breathed)
- Striking out
- Hit a home run
- Too cocky
- Hit a home run
- Off-balanced swing
- Good hitter
- Swinging and missing
- Home run

He only had one game left in the season -- the last one, and he hit 3 out of 5 or .600! He made that incredible improvement with just one round of EFT (while students were putting their things away and getting ready to leave class).

If I had more space I would share additional stories of EFT wonders in my classroom, including alleviating headaches, stomach aches, migraines, and the stress of growing up.
