Dear Gary –

I have an amusing story of how EFT helped me improve my mini-golf game – significantly!  I was attending my oldest nephew’s wedding a couple of years ago, and my youngest nephew suggested we go play miniature golf.  Unbeknownst to me, my brother and his youngest son often played miniature golf, while I had played it perhaps five times in the past 20 years.  Our family all went out to this beautiful course, and began to play.

Well, let me tell you, it wasn’t long before some old childhood competition began to arise in me (my brother is older than me and used to “cream” me at numerous games we played together).  By the third hole, my score was way over what I would have liked it to be.  While my brother was playing quite nicely at this golf course, I was about 3 - 5 strokes over par each hole.  I was not happy, to say the least.  And while I knew it was a game, I really didn’t like making a fool of myself.

After I finished hitting the ball all over the third hole and getting a bit frustrated, I remembered tapping!  Well, Gary, you’re such a lover of golf that I thought, “it can’t hurt!”  And, as my brother thinks I’m unusual enough, I was not about to openly tap while standing there on the golf course!  I decided to take a deep breath, and I imagined myself tapping on the points, while saying to myself:

Even though I’m feeling frustrated at how I’m playing, it’s ok … It’s just a game, and it’s just for fun…

Even though I’m really wanting to do better, and I haven’t been, I think I can, if I just relax a little bit…

Even though I’m feeling like a bit of a fool here, hitting the ball all over the place, it’s ok.  It really will be fine, no matter what happens…

I just tapped in my imagination on whatever the feelings were at the moment.  It was my turn again.  I got beside the ball and hit it.  I made par on that hole!  And the next!  And the next!  The next one, I made a hole in one!  From that point on, I made either under par, par, or just barely over it.

At the very end of the game (and you’ll love this!), I was the only one who hit the ball into the almost impossible shot (at the "19th hole") to win a free game.  I proudly handed the coupon to my brother, and thanked EFT in my heart!

As an aside, I am also a singer, and have used EFT numerous times to shift my anxiety before performing.  Often I cannot tap in public, so either I imagine myself tapping, or I do the touch and breath technique to shift the energy of the emotions.  Thank you, Gary, for such an amazing tool!

Blessings to you,

Rev. Anne Presuel
