Hi Everyone,

Jennifer Todd gives us a good example of how to do EFT for yourself for a lifelong limit. She says, "Needless to say, I got a 90% on the final - only two people in the whole class got an A on the final and I was one of them!  I ended up with an overall A in ALGEBRA and now I've moved on to Statistics and am doing great!!  It is truly a miracle ... what did I ever do before tapping??"

Hugs, Gary

I cannot thank you enough for sharing this amazing technique.  Emotional Freedom doesn't even begin to describe what tapping has done for me.  My latest success was just too good not to share:

I am a 36 year old mother of two who has decided to go back to school.  One of the first classes I signed up to take was college algebra.  I was terrified!!  I hadn't done math in almost 20 years and even back then, math was my worst subject.  I really thought I just couldn't do it ... that my brain just didn't work that way.  Every day that I had to go to class, my heart would pound, my hands would shake ... I was literally scared to death, even though I knew it was silly - that it was only a math class.  I knew that I was going to fail horribly and embarrass myself in front of a room full of 18 year olds!

Then it occurred to me to try tapping!  Tapping had worked on so many other things for me, both big and small, so I thought why not?  It can't hurt!  I sat in the parking lot before class and I would tap:

Even though I feel stupid and can't do math…

Even though my brain totally shuts down the minute I see the numbers on the page, I choose to know I have everything I need to succeed.

Even though I have never been able to do math and never will…

Even though I'm a girl and everyone knows girls can't do math, I choose to know that I am fully capable.

It was really eye-opening!  As always with tapping, I realized that my blocks had very little to do with math and almost everything to do with my own limiting beliefs.

GC COMMENT: For an even deeper resolution, I would suggest going back to specific events during her earlier school years where she had feelings of failure, humiliation, etc. Doing so, may collapse more limiting beliefs and other issues besides the math response.

Needless to say, I got a 90% on the final - only two people in the whole class got an A on the final and I was one of them!  I ended up with an overall A in ALGEBRA and now I've moved on to Statistics and am doing great!!  It is truly a miracle ... what did I ever do before tapping??

Thanks again,

Jennifer Todd
