Use EFT as Soon as You Have an Injury
Dear EFT Community,
Judy Whitcraft, Certified EFT Practitioner writes us with a compelling story that motivates us to remember EFT when physical injury occurs. She says, "I think that by doing EFT in that moment, the pain, shock, and trauma is released and never gets stuck in the body. Even if it doesn't heal it completely, it moves the healing along with greater velocity."

When I called my client Sharon to verify an appointment time, she answered her phone and was having another conversation on her cell phone. She finished that conversation, and then told me she had called her paramedic brother to see what she should do with the pinkie finger that she had burned an hour earlier on her curling iron. Her brother told her nothing could be done.
I asked her if she wanted me to tap with her for it. Sharon said, "Sure, I hadn't even thought of that." (Although she has tapped with success for her own allergies, and for her toddler.) The pain level was a 5 on a scale of 0 to 10, and when she touched it, the pain level was a 10.
It was already blistered.
Even though my pinkie finger really hurts...
Even though my pinkie finger really hurts, I apologize to my finger for burning it. Even though I should have been more careful, I forgive myself.
We then tapped on the points two continuous rounds while repeating the words, pain in my little finger.
Sharon then reported the pain was at a 0 even when she touched it.
We did another round on
Even though I think it might hurt later...
Nothing fancy. Just basic EFT. Two days later, Sharon reported that there had been NO more pain. The area where the initial blister had been was a small line.
I could give you many more instances of times I have used EFT, at the moment of the injury, that have completely taken the pain away, have eliminated black and blue marks, swelling and redness. There are many instances in the EFT Insights newsletters. My point is that people forget to do it in the moment! I think that by doing EFT in that moment, the pain, shock, and trauma is released and never gets stuck in the body.
Even if it doesn't heal it completely, it moves the healing along with greater velocity.
So remember and do EFT next time you have a fall, a burn, a jammed finger, a sprain, pulled muscle, etc. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
