My own fears.... Driving/ riding in traffic,speed on interstates, off on ramps, tractor trailers.
Driving/riding over Bridges
All these fears have left thanks to tapping on myself several times.
MY own pain... Foot pain from an old surgery
My own addictions.... smoking and weight..I have not smoked in over 8 years..and have tapped on
control issues that have set me free me from eating addictions and have help me lose weight and even more
important helped me accept my body..It is so liberating!!!
When I first learned EFT, I was a bit doubtful to try it with other people, feeling shy more than
anything else. Then I tapped myself for being hesitant to tell people that EFT can and will help
them and since then I have been able to easily talk to anyone who is willing to listen about it.
I have also learned this is not a procedure everyone is interested in or willing to try and
I have had to tap myself to let that go and not feel personally bad if other people are not interested.
This is one of the best parts of learning
about EFT... it has changed my life , and the people I have worked with lives, so much for the better.
A brief list of successful tapping sessions I have done, there are many more than
these but these are the ones I remember most.

had puzzled the Drs. and therapists. Exploratory surgery was their last answer and not one he wanted.

arm up straight with no pain. We did another Set Up/sequence and he was reporting
he was waving his arm over his head. He was laughing and crying into the phone.

his friend asked him about it and he had to think a minute. After 30 years of dealing with
it in a few seconds it was just a vague memory. AWESOME!!!

Female /On the phone/: Back pain-lower. I asked ( Because of reading Louise L. Hay's
wonderful book Heal Your Body ) if she had any financial worries, money issues. She
said no because it was the best she had been financially. But after tapping one round
Set Up and Sequence, she said yes, there were spending money issues but perhaps it
was from issues she has in her first marriage when he had put alot of writting on her
walls about money. We tapped for this and forgiveness and the pain immediatly went to 0.
