Hi Everyone,

Here's an important message from Dawn Norton that should be of interest to women everywhere.

Hugs, Gary


By Dawn Norton, EFT-ADV

Dear Gary,

I have been waiting almost a year to be able to write this testimonial.  I will say right off that there is no real proof of EFT being responsible for the improvement I have had ... except for my own belief.  Due to early events in my life, I have had nearly a lifetime of low self-image, particularly body image. As I began practicing EFT on a regular basis, I knew it would be good to use it on my body image. I have recently received what I believe is physical proof of a change in my body due to the results of EFT.

My mother had breast cancer at age 47.  She died later that year of other causes.  The recommendation of a woman with a family history of breast cancer is to get a baseline mammogram at age 35.  I did a lot of research and developed my own opinions about mammography and opted instead to have a thermogram.

Thermograms measure heat in the body and give a risk assessment for cancer and other diseases. They are supposed to be able to identify cancers as early as ten years before it manifests in a way that you can detect it.  The measurement is ranked from 1 (low) to 5 (high). My first thermogram gave a result of 2 in one breast and 2+ in the other.  This is considered low risk.  I decided to go back 2 years later for the next one.

Less than a year before that, my dear aunt passed from breast cancer.  It was very traumatic to me as she had been a surrogate mother.  And two months after my second thermogram, my grandmother also died of breast cancer.  I mention these two events to tell you what my thoughts were regarding these events and the outcome in my thermogram.

I was so distraught over having three relatives on both sides of my family with breast cancer.  I internalized this and became convinced that I was a moving target and I began picturing in my mind the road I was walking and at the end was a sign marked "Breast Cancer."  I know now how dangerous it is to let your thoughts visualize so dramatically something so negative.

That second set of results was that both breasts were now measuring Medium risk at 3.  This only reinforced my negative thought and alarmed me greatly even though the thermologist assured me that I was still within normal range.  I was supposed to come back in six months.

Well, about that time, I was introduced to EFT.  I worked on all kinds of issues for several months and tapped along with every DVD you offered at the time, borrowing benefits for all kinds of things all along the way.  On my way to my third thermogram a little over a year ago, I directly tapped for negative body image regarding breasts and cancer.  I had only tapped briefly on that specifically one other time.

And when I received my results I was astounded that they had gone down.  I couldn’t believe that from tapping so briefly I had such great results.  My husband pointed out that I had been tapping on all kinds of issues for several months and that made more sense.  I was now 3- on one side and 2 on the other.  So, back to low and just lower than medium.

I had my most recent thermogram a few weeks ago and obtained the results recently.  My newest results were 2+ and 2.  I could be happier because I hoped I would be in the 1 category, but 2 is completely low risk and so I am doing the happy little I am healthy dance.  I love Dr Carrington because she turned me on to the power of choices and affirmations.  I realize now how powerful my thoughts are.  I have faced and dealt with my fears and choose to walk another road.  My hope is that by next year I will be in the 1 category.

I know what some who are reading might be thinking.  Well, there could be all other kinds of reasons for the progress.  But the reasons *I* BELIEVE IN are not currently present.  I weigh 30 pounds more than I prefer and have believed is healthy.  I have not cleaned up my diet, although I consider my diet fairly healthy.  I have begun exercising a multitude of times and lasted only a few days.  And my supplement intake is highly hit or miss.

I have only done two major things that I would contribute my improvement to.  I have changed my thoughts.  Every day that I live I now consciously watch what I think and say.  When I hear my mouth say a negative thing, I immediately change it around.  When I catch myself thinking a negative thought, "I am fat, I am stupid, I am a loser."  I immediately, step back and argue with myself.  "You can't tell me that.  I am smart.  I am healthy.  I am an achiever."  And of course I tap it all out; I use EFT daily.

I have not included my setups because they are very personal to me.  But any hateful thought a person has can be turned around into a setup statement.  Overall I feel better than I have in many years.  My low thyroid symptoms are gone.  Years of yeast infections are also gone.  I feel greater calm and peace in my life.  Little by little I am overcoming what I perceive as challenges.  And many of these things are side benefits as not much time was spent addressing them directly.

I have had the one minute wonders.  This is not one of them.  It came by persistence on not one, but many issues and I believe I will continue to see these kinds of improvements both physically and emotionally.
