Hi Gary,

I just have to tell you a personal story concerning some impressive pain relief I experienced. I think it can be inspiring and useful for many with health issues. Since a few weeks I now and then have heavy pains in the left part of my chest. I saw an MD for this and she diagnosed it as stress, most probably related to my frustrations concerning my current employment.

Since I first learned about EFT and started studying it from various resources (including your DVDs). I am destined to become an independent counselor with EFT, but the change of employment gives me stress. Currently I'm still doing the job I have been doing for a few years which provides me with a steady income. I must admit that I have some fears about giving up a nice paycheck and starting on my own in a discipline which is largely unknown or unaccepted to the public at large.

Nevertheless, I have decided that in the coming months, I will be starting this therapist business using EFT. I think I need some more EFT-related knowledge however before I can start doing this professionally. But in the meantime I'm having a difficult time at my current employment because I would like to dedicate my time more to studying instead of being at work: this frustrates me.

And this stress now manifests itself physically, in severe pains in the left side of my chest and my left arm, especially when I breathe in deeply. The first time I used EFT to work on this I had woken up in the middle in the night with these heavy pains. I could hardly breathe (literally), and no matter in what manner I tried to lay down comfortably in my bed, the pain was just there. So I thought, I have this tool EFT, let's see if it can REALLY deliver upon its expectations in a real life situation (I must admit that I was a bit skeptical).

So I started a few rounds of EFT, just tapping on 'this pain on the left side of my chest' and after 10 minutes the pain was gone! GONE! I could hardly believe it! Great result! Slept like a rose afterwards.

But this is not the end of the story. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with this pain. I got up immediately and started tapping. Boy, it was quite a challenge this time! When I started off the intensity of the pain was around 6 on a scale of 0 to 10.

I did a number of rounds of tapping: The first round . 'this pain on the left side of my body' ... with no result. The next round . 'this tension I feel when I breathe in deeply' had no result and the next round, 'this tension I feel just below my left nipple when I breathe in deeply' ... no result - the pain was still 6 out of 10.

At this point I started to worry a bit ... how come none of this helps?

Would EFT do it for me this time? The next round . 'the frustration I get at work' ... had no result! Then, I tapped for 'the fear to start my own business' ... and again the pain stayed where it was. I continued with 'the fear to let go of my old job and the financial security' ... and still no results.

Then I tapped for 'I never relax and must always keeping going' ... 'I'm occupied in way too many things right now' and then, 'feelings of guilt if I allow myself to relax'... again nothing!! This thing really started to frustrate me now! Until now, whatever I tapped on, nothing gave me even the slightest relief from my pain! But OK, I remembered the words from Gary:' Persistence, persistence, persistence'...

So I started reading your EFT tutorials on your website again ... and there I found the answer in Tutorial #16 "What benefits are you getting from this illness? What would you have to give up if your illness went away?" And my answer to that question was... If I didn't have this pain anymore, I wouldn't have an excuse for myself anymore to call in sick tomorrow from work! So the advantage of having this pain was that I could call in sick and spend the day at home!

So I started tapping on that Even though I use this pain as an excuse to stay home from work tomorrow... After one round (one!), the pain was gone! Completely gone, no trace of it anymore! I tried to invoke it again (just to be sure it was really gone), but no - gone it was! So as it turned out, I just needed to find THAT specific cause in order for the pain to disappear. Any other setup-phrase didn't do anything. By the way, I went to work the next day! Persistence DOES pay!

Kindest Regards,

Kris Neyts
