I have a quick contribution (albeit an important one for us, personally) to make to your literature on children's experiences with using tapping for various purposes.

When my son was two, we visited my mother's horse farm, as we had done many times in the past. As we were leaving, my son broke out into a horrible, swollen eyed rash. He has been very allergic to horses ever since. I have long wondered if there wasn't an emotional (fear) component to this phenomenon, but haven't been able to do anything about it until I learned from you about EFT.

After your Cleveland seminar, I was inspired to try the tapping with my son. We did it on the way to the barn. I had him repeat it as we drove in and could SEE (!) the horses. I'll be darned if we didn't stay there for an hour petting the horses and climbing in the hay loft! And now, with about 10 lessons under his belt, he is cantering and wondering when he can *gallop*! Thank you so much for this freedom!

With my gratitude and affection,

Mary Smith.

PS He gets sniffles occasionally but they are not debilitating like the old reactions. We still tap occasionally as well.
