Hi Everyone,

Rajan Ramchandani from Singapore taught Tanisia Mooney how to do EFT and, shortly thereafter, Tanisia was involved in a major car accident. In her letter below she describes her panic and emotional difficulties (she was not physically injured) and how she achieved impressive calm with EFT. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I have just received the following story from Tanisia Mooney in her own words. 

Warmest regards,

Rajan Ramchandani


Dear Rajan:

I've just had the most incredible demonstration with EFT recently. 

Yesterday I was driving on a 2-lane country road on my way to perform a "Handfasting" (Wedding) ceremony.  The celebration was to take place at a private campground, and the entranceway to this campground is unmarked.  Though I've been to this area many times, it's still a tricky place to find and turn into because of the marked highway speed.  Also, the stretch of highway where this campground is located is designated as a "passing" lane--a driver is allowed to pass on the left of one car in order to get ahead of a slower-moving car.

After looking for the landmarks that indicated I was close to the campground, I adjusted my speed and signaled my intent to turn.  When I made my turn, several things happened at once.  One, I realized that I had turned into the wrong entranceway (I was 1/4 mile short of the campground); two, my car was hit, then spun around, then was hit again head-on.

As soon as I registered that I was in "another" accident (I was involved in two minor collisions within the past two years) and that both cars were seriously damaged, I immediately burst into panicked sobs.  I was terrified that the other person was injured (the other driver's airbags had deployed), and a million dire scenarios ran through my head.  It took a couple of minutes for a good samaritan to get me to confirm that I was uninjured and to get me to crawl out of my car.  (My driver's side door was seriously damaged, and I couldn't get it to open).

My friends at the campsite were called, and they came to my rescue while I was still in a full-on panic attack.  Emergency personnel came onto the scene, and my friend was trying to get me to calm down enough to give the policeman my driver's license, car registration, and insurance information. In the middle of all of this chaos, almost by instinct I got myself to begin tapping on "MAJOR ACCIDENT". (That's the way it looked in my head.)

After a couple of rounds on the first part of the "sandwich technique," I was able to calm down enough to give my statement to the police officer, to make sure the other driver was okay (he was), and to remove my belongings and wedding supplies to my friend's van.  Several minutes after we arrived at the campground, I felt shaken but calm.  About 30 minutes after that, as I was telling my friends about the accident I was just involed in, they remarked at how CALM I was. 

Throughout the day, that was the main thing that the other guests (also friends) had said about my experience.  I was able to perform the handfasting ceremony beautifully, helped with decorating and guest control, and was able to enjoy myself at the celebration--all this through tapping after surviving a major car accident!

Since learning and practicing EFT for only two weeks, I've had several emotional energy shifts and healings, but none as dramatic as this.

If I haven't said it before, thank you, thank you, thank you MANY times for introducing me to EFT!

Bright Blessings,

Tanisia Mooney
