Hi Everyone,

Barbara Paz from Israel gives us yet another reason to put EFT in our pain management toolbox. Notice how quickly her intense pain faded. You might give this article to any physicians you know who prefer natural pain relief to drugs.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

One common experience many cat owners have is playing with or petting your cat, and all of a sudden out of nowhere the cat digs his claws into your fingers.  Usually you can get away with a small prick, but this morning Neo's claws dug deeply into two of my fingers and on their way out (of my skin) tore two deep long slits in these fingers.  Neo knew he had done something wrong and dashed right off, leaving two throbbing fingers with blood soon following.

It really was painful, but remembering so many similar EFT stories from your site, I decided to tap.  I thought this was too much of a throbbing pain for it go away so fast, but still I went ahead and was prepared for average results.  I didn’t do any setup phrases - there were no reversals needed here.  I just tapped straight onto everything coming up in my mind.

God this really hurt.

This throbbing pain in my fingers.

My fingers are pulsating with pain.

My fingers are ripped, and I'm in pain

This throbbing is putting me under pressure.

I am in pain.

I'm such a wimp for being in pain from every little thing.

You always make such a big deal from every little pain.

I hate being terrified of pain.

I was so stupid playing with the cat in this way anyway.

That was so stupid of me.

I had the feeling he could attack my fingers.

I had it coming.  I deserved this.

You're such a baby.

Basically that was it.  I did about three rounds of the EFT shortcut points, and then stopped.  The next thing I realized was that the pain had completely stopped … completely.  I wasn't expecting such a rapid response to the tapping.  It was great.  About eight hours later, there was a very minor soreness where the skin was torn.  I'm still excited about the results.

Thank you for sharing the wonderful EFT gift with all of us,

Barbara Paz
