Dear EFT Community,
Allen Kruest shares how he helped an 84-year-old neighbor use EFT to help heal her painful shoulder.
By Allan D. Kruest Sr.
We live in a senior mobile home park in Las Vegas, and after signing up for your newsletter, then downloading the free EFT Mini Manual from this website and using emotional freedom techniques on myself with great results, I had the following happen--
On my daily walk, I would on occasion stop and converse with a widowed lady of 84 years and attempt to cheer her up. This day I saw that she had her right arm in a sling, and I asked her what happened. She told me she had been putting clothes and such in a series of suitcases, in what she said was in preparation for a move to Colorado to a senior hospice.
She overloaded one suitcase on a bed, and when she attempted to take it off the bed, not realizing the weight, she held on to it and it pulled her shoulder out of the socket. Bad move, and a friend took her to the doctor and he X-rayed the shoulder and said that the muscles and ligaments were injured and that all he could do was to put her in a sling and that she would be lucky to use the arm in 6 months, if ever.
She was in extreme pain if she tried to use the arm. I told her I had learned a procedure that may help, and would she let me use it on her. She said yes and I spent about 35 minutes explaining EFT and the points to tap.
On starting, she said the SUD 0-10 level of intensity of the pain was a 20. We started the tapping and the first round brought the pain down to an 8 out of 10. She was flabbergasted, as this event had happened less than a week ago, and even at night she would awaken with extreme pain if she moved.
"Even though this pain has me frightend, I deeply and completely accept myself."
"Even though I am worried that this pain in my shoulder will never go away, I deeply and completely accept myself."
"Even though this pain makes me fear that I can't live on my own anymore, I deeply and completely accept myself."
"Even though this pain makes me feel useless, I deeply and completely accept myself."
"Even though this pain makes me feel sad, I deeply and completely accept myself."
I proceeded with the second round of tapping, and upon asking her what was the pain now, she said it was gone. She then removed the sling, and whirled her arms about and was like a child that had a pain removed. Needless to say, I was then the one that was flabbergasted.
She went back the following week to her doctor with her sling in place and when asked how the pain was, she tore the sling off and whirled her arms around and the doctor, stood with his mouth open and asked her what had happened.
She told him about me, and what I had done, and upon recovering his senses he said it was probably a freak event. She said to him that he would be wise to look into this and he said he was too busy to follow weird protocols.
She left and has not had pain since.
