Hi Everyone,

Here's a very practical use of surrogate EFT by Judy Whitcraft. Judy says, "Then she [the mother] called me, explained the situation and the details Jason had given her, and asked me if I could surrogate tap for him. Once off the phone, I spent 30 minutes tapping on myself as I imagined Jason in my mind...."

Hugs, Gary

There was a pipe bomb scare at the middle school in our small community. It was real. One of the boys had made a pipe bomb, brought it to school and was discovered. The students were kept in their classrooms, (don't ask me why!), the bomb squad came, took the pipe bomb away, and all the children were physically safe. Later they were told that the pipe bomb was equal to 1/3 stick of dynamite and had been very dangerous.

Jason, the son of one of my friends, was a student who saw and heard much that day. That evening Jason, who is a strong school athlete, and a farm kid, and is used to "toughing it out", was visibly shaken. His parents did their best to calm him as Jason told about the upsetting events of the day. Jason lay in his bed that night begging not to have to go to school.

The next day Jason again begged to stay home from school, complaining of an upset stomach. Once at school, the stomach upset persisted and Jason called home, wanting his parents to come get him. His mother called the principal and asked if he could talk to Jason. Then she called me, explained the situation and the details Jason had given her, and asked me if I could surrogate tap for him. Once off the phone, I spent 30 minutes tapping on myself as I imagined Jason in my mind.

Setups while tapping on my karate chop point:

I am Jason, and even though yesterday was really scary, I'm a good kid anyway.
I am Jason, and even though it WAS a live pipe bomb, and I know the kid that made it, I am safe and so is everyone else.
I am Jason, and even though I saw Tim's dad in the hallway in a bomb suit, and that was really scary, I'm a good kid, and I'm OK.

I used the following negative reminders while tapping the EFT points:

Yesterday was really scary, we had to sit in our classrooms and hear all the commotion in the hall, I saw Tim's dad in the hallway in a bomb suit, it was really scary, my stomach is going crazy, I know the kid that made the pipe bomb, I thought he was an OK kid, how could I be so wrong, will it ever be safe again at school, my stomach is going crazy, so dangerous at school, one minute normal, and the next minute I might be blown up, my stomach is going crazy, I don't want to be at school, it is not safe, what is going to happen next, the pipe bomb was real, the bomb squad took it away, it was real, it could have killed all of us, it could have killed all of us, it could have killed all of us.

Then I did affirmative rounds down all tapping points: I am safe, it all turned out OK, I am safe, we are all OK, I am safe, I can be calm now, I am safe, I am OK. I can relax, I am safe.

I continually tapped on those phrases over and over, for half an hour. It took about an hour from when the mom called the principal until he called Jason into the office. In the meantime, I had done the surrogate tapping. By that time, Jason was calm. The principal reported back to Mom that all was well. At noon, Jason's father met Jason in the school cafeteria for lunch to see how he was doing. Jason was fine, his stomach was calm, and ate lunch easily. Jason did not ask to come home.

It has been 4 weeks since, and Jason has not brought up the incident, and has not asked to stay home from school. When others ask him about it, he reports what happened and calmly says they are not letting the (pipe bomb) boy come back to school.

Thank you Gary and EFT and the Universe for this amazing tool.

Respectfully submitted,

Judy Whitcraft
