Hi Everyone,

Here is a quick session I had with "Lenny" who had tried EFT on himself and didn't get very far. As our topic unfolded he said he had a miserable case of the flu. Our conversation went like this....

Gary: Have you done EFT on it?

Lenny: Yes. Several times.

Gary: Any result?

Lenny: No.

Gary: What is your most prominent symptom?

Lenny: A sore throat.

Gary: On a scale of 0-10, how bad is it?

Lenny: It's a 6.

Gary: Rub the sore spot and repeat this--"Even though I have this sore throat, I forgive myself for any emotional contribution I may have made to this problem. I forgive myself for any grievance I may be holding onto or any guilt, fear or other emotion I may have that may be showing up as a sore throat even though I may not be able to articulate it. I am open to the possibility that the poison in my thinking may be manifesting itself as poisons in my body."

Note: After this, Lenny tapped from EB through UA repeating "this sore throat." The 6 went down to a 2 and then gradually rose to a 3 where it stopped. We did another similar round and it dropped to 0.5. The affirmation given above is not in the EFT Course. It is part of our advanced tapes. For those interested go to "Steps toward becoming The Ultimate Therapist."

The conversation continued...

Gary: Why do you suppose we just got these results while you were unable to get any relief on your own?

Lenny: The affirmation. I felt something shift as I was saying them.

Gary: Maybe so. There's another possibility, though.

Lenny: What is that?

Gary: The fact that we were doing this together. Often people can get results by self administering the tapping. Other times, there appears to be something useful about two people working together. I think it's a spiritual thing--a love thing. I think it is evidence of the oneness that most spiritual disciplines insist is our true nature.

Hugs to all, Gary
