Hi Everyone,

Mandy Momberg from South Africa gives us this intriguing case involving the aftermath of a traumatic attack on her friend. Her friend was still skeptical after the EFT session but, nonetheless, could not bring up her fear again. On later follow up, of course, the fear was completely gone. Mandy says, "I was stunned!  I hadn’t expected such a complete ‘instant’ cure, and I had a rush of goose-bumps."

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary

I’d been using EFT for about five months when some friends from the town where I previously lived came to visit me over a long weekend.  One of the girls “Linda” had a very traumatic experience over a year before.  Three guys attacked her on her property, beat her with sticks and whips, made her unlock her house and robbed her. 

She told me that when the sun sets, her level of intensity for fear, panic, and anxiety goes up to a 50! (on a 0-10 scale).  The only way she manages to “keep it together” is if she has her revolver and a huge torch with her.  Linda has been to conventional counseling and while she is better able to cope with everyday situations, she had no control over the daily dusk intensity issues. These included tightness in her stomach, heart palpitations, sweaty hands and being gripped with intense fear.

When the sun starts to set Linda becomes quite anxious, locks the doors, and closes windows and checks continuously that they are locked, whilst perpetually wiping her sweaty palms.  I must add that Linda is one of the most confident people I know, and has a strength of character most people can only dream of having, so seeing my friend go through this heart wrenching ordeal so graciously, has been very humbling. Linda has given me permission to share her story with you.

Needless to say, Linda was very skeptical and more than a little doubtful that some simple tapping could bring relief, but was desperate enough to try anything.  So, after dinner on the evening when she was ready to give it a go, I tried using the Movie Technique (a first for me). 

Linda said it would be a 20 minute movie (I can’t remember if I asked for a movie title as I knew the content of the entire movie).  The crescendo was the moment she turned round and saw three guys behind her after she had locked the door on leaving her house.  We tapped:

Even though there were three guys behind me

Even though they had no right to be there…(adding some very descriptive local language).

After the first round of the full Basic Recipe her intensity level came down to 30, (on a scale of 0 to 10), after the next round it was at a 10, then 8, then 7.  We were still using the same setup and tapping phrases, just adding more emphasis, as this remained her crescendo.  After the fifth round, her intensity went down to 3 out of 10.  

At this point I could see anxiety build up in her as a new aspect came up.  She said, “Listen, this tapping is going to take more than just one night to work – if ever.  But, now I know what to do. Let’s just leave it at that”.  Realizing that she was close to tears and she didn’t want to lose composure in front of everyone else (who were tapping along and thus Borrowing Benefits), I agreed that the process could take months, and told her we could tap over the phone in future.  So we watched the “6 Days at the VA” video instead.

Linda phoned me three nights later to tell me that she was standing OUTSIDE, on her veranda where the attack had taken place, IN THE DARK and she didn’t have the slightest fear!  She had arrived back to the property after dark on the night following our tapping, very aware of the fact that her revolver was inside the house, but didn’t have any fear at all. 

She was reluctant to believe it, and still being skeptical, she concluded that perhaps it was because she was so relaxed from the weekend’s visit.  After a stressful day at work on Tuesday she ran errands with the intention of arriving home after dark – to test it again (I did tell you she is a strong person!) and still felt no fear.  She decided to test it a third time before she phoned to tell me her wonderful news!  I was stunned!  I hadn’t expected such a complete ‘instant’ cure, and I had a rush of goose-bumps.  It must be absolutely awful to not feel safe in your own home, as she hadn’t done for over a year. 

I could hear the relief and joy in her voice as she said “I don’t know how you did it – but I’m not scared anymore! THANK YOU!” I spoke to her about a month later, and was very happy to hear that the fear and anxiety had not returned, and she is once again filled with a zest for life.

It’s so AMAZING what EFT can sort out, so quickly and so painlessly!!!

Gary, THANK YOU for sharing EFT with the world!

Love and light to all,

Mandy
