This one should get your attention, especially if you are skeptical about doing surrogate work.

By Catherine Umberger


Let me just say that I am a beginner ... about 2 weeks into doing EFT, and loving it. You requested examples of surrogate work and I wish to report on my results with my dying plant.

I went on maternity leave and asked the guys at work to make sure and water my Peace Lilly once a week. When I came back, my co-worker had watered it exactly one time in the 10 weeks I was gone - the day before I came back. He had poured probably a half gallon in that plant and left it to root rot.

When I came in the next day, the plant was virtually dead. There was very little green left and ALL the leaves were dried and dead. I sent loved to that plant, watered it and tried to "will" life back into it. It became a little greener, but was still laying flat. I cut off its dead leaves, did more watering and loving and such and after about 5 days it was looking like it had a 5% chance at living instead of the original .05% ...

I then learned EFT and two days later thought - why not? So I stated - "I have permission in Divine truth to work with this plant?" and I pictured my plant in my head ... then I stated"My body is ready willing and able to surrogate for my plant? ... My body is now surrogating for my plant?" Then I did a muscle test, received a positive and said this statement for my plant:

Even though I was neglected and not watered for the last 3 months I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Then I did 1 round of EFT and a remainder round (just in case) ...

Then I stated something such as "My body is now back to it's own responses"

My plant did not immediately spring up and start dancing, but about 4 hours later I noticed that the roots were rising up and things looked greener. Coincidence? Hmmm ... well I left and came back the next day and holy cow! My plant was in fantastic shape - I could have never dreamed! It was completely healthy, standing up and full of life, a 180 from the plant I saw the night before. There is no other explanation other than EFT working, because no plant could EVER heal like that, so quickly!
