Today's Insights: Perhaps some of you remember Ann Landers, a very popular advice columnist from many years ago. Here's an insightful, humorous Q&A from 12/4/2002
I am an English teacher and my students are reading George Orwell's "1984." I am having a difficult time explaining Communism, Socialism and Fascism without giving a time-consuming history lesson. I recall you printed a humorous explanation about these concepts using cows. Will you please print it again. I'm sure it will kick-start a lively class discussion.
A teacher in Mississippi.
It's an "oldie" but a "goldie." Here it is.
Socialism: You have two cows. Give one to your neighbor.
Communism: You have two cows. Give both cows to your government and they may give you some milk.
Fascism: You have two cows. Give all of the milk to the government, and the government sells it.
Nazism: You have two cows. The government shoots you and takes both cows.
Anarchism: You have two cows. Keep both cows, shoot the government agent and steal another cow.
Capitalism: You have two cows. Sell one, buy a bull.
THE UNSEEN THERAPIST AT WORK - A SERIES
NOTE: This series is meant primarily for our OEFT Course Membership and assumes a special, High-End level of understanding. However, as a courtesy, I'm including it here for non-members as well in hopes that we might broaden the benefits for all. It should be well worth everyone's exploration. Enjoy.
Marni: Not Good Enough itis
A "Good Start" Session
"I feel like I'm on an island and it's so lonely here."
Almost everyone deals with some form of an "I'm not good enough" issue. And, until resolved, it can limit us in numerous ways. Further, finding the core issues (specific events) that cause it can be a challenge.
Note in this "good start" session (our second session), Marni and I make important stumbles (please study them) until about 31 minutes in. Then we land (with Unseen Therapist's help) on this metaphor, "I feel like I'm on an island and it's so lonely here."
Nadia is a Member of our Optimal EFT Course Membership and, after an orientation session with me and The Unseen Therapist, she overcame a life-long issue of feeling that "nobody wants me." This is the type of issue that can take months or years with conventional therapy if, indeed, conventional therapy could do the job. Here is how she described it in an email to me...
To remind us of our working session with The Unseen Therapist, we have transformed my belief "nobody wants me" and "I am not like the others."
Even though it was really efficient putting to zero the emotional impact of these sentences, I wanted to see it in motion in real life. So last week, I had an intensive training week-end lasting 2 days: landscape theatre, which is a training about creating art scenery outside.
The challenge for the participants, a group of 20 artists, was performing different actor and creator spontaneous performances and exercises in front of everybody and sharing about the unknown. For me it was a good test about "nobody wants me" or "I am not like the others." It was quite a relief to feel simply "normal."
I observe that this "not like the others" is even not appearing at all in my thoughts.
I was feeling just as everybody and I begin to feel an interesting awareness of a sort of closeness that I did not knew before. An "incident' happened when the leader requested me to change of place (because of Covid rules), the result being that I was really placed far from the group. Of course, I did not like that but I was OK and realised that I was not feeling apart or not wanted or not chosen.
So it is for me a real success and confirmation that I am free of this belief.
Lots of love, Nadia
Underlying Nadia's "Nobody wants me" issue are many specific events and issues, all of which need resolution. For example she was raped daily/weekly from infancy to age 17. We explore these issues together in the video below and, in the process, have two sessions with The Unseen Therapist. Many insights here. Well worth your time.
"I must admit, my jaw literally dropped and I was speechless for a minute or so. It was just miraculous! I could not find any way that this could be coincidental."
Intro from Gary: If you have ever had a bird fly into your home then you know how difficult it is to get them out. They appear to be unable to find an open door or window and fly around endlessly in a state of panic.
Helle Gylling (Certified OEFT Master) recently had this experience with a hummingbird and, of course, called on The Unseen Therapist for assistance.
Here is her story.
I wanted to tell you a little miracle story : )
Yesterday, a hummingbird got stuck in the garage. We tried all day long to get him out. Susan looked up all the possible ways to get a hummingbird out of a garage and she did OEFT - but nothing worked. With our search on the problem we also found that typically, because of their rapid wing flutterling, hummingbirds only live a few hours once they get stuck. Accordingly, we were very concerned as we love all the wild birds in our yard.
By the end of the day, it was still in the garage and there was nothing we could do. The next morning, same thing - it was still in there and no matter what we did, it stayed in the garage. About midday, Susan came in again from the garage - it had still not left. We considered it a miracle that it was still alive since it was only supposed to live only a few hours under that condition.
She looked at me and said, "We both need to call on Unseen Therapist now." So I got up and went over to where she was, in front of the window out to the garage.
We did a short round of OEFT and when we said "Unseen Therapist, please help this hummingbird get outside, back to freedom," suddenly it dove down and went right out the garage door and was gone!!!
Susan and I looked at each other in amazement. I must admit, my jaw literally dropped and I was speechless for a minute or so. It was just miraculous! I could not find any way that this could be coincidental.
Our next Webinar: It will be on Sunday, November 6, at 10am Pacific time. It will be dedicated to Members' questions/comments about our Advanced Lessons, Self-Help Sessions, Challenging cases, personal uses or anything else that will help us climb our Stairway to Miracles.

I am very pleased to inform you that as the newest graduate of The Gary Craig Official EFT Training Center (English language), Jamie Munney has earned the title of Gary Craig Certified Official EFT™ Master!
Jamie has met all the requirements of the one-year Complete EFT Certification program (including Optimal EFT, The Unseen Therapist, and Gold Standard EFT Tapping). The curriculum also includes ongoing personal growth work to become a more “healed healer,” feedback on practice sessions, an overview of spiritual principles for use in reframing, and other areas of related study customized to each student. In addition, Jamie completed the Immerse-ucation series, a requirement for all graduates.
As you know, to be considered among the top EFT practitioners in the world, I require certification students to pass the final written certification exam with a score of 90% or better. Jamie scored 94% on the exam, an outstanding achievement.
Jamie has an impressive background in several areas of healing and spirituality. As for a few highlights, she's a long-time A Course in Miracles student, and has done extensive study in the work of Dr. David R. Hawkins, renowned psychiatrist, physician, and spiritual teacher. She currently studies with spiritual teacher, Adyashanti. Jamie has completed significant study in quantum physics, and has read hundreds of books on metaphysical topics. She holds a Master's degree in Metaphysical Sciences, and is also a Certified Reiki Master.
On a personal note, I have really enjoyed taking Jamie through the EFT Certification process. Balancing the rigors of life with a training program of this magnitude is no easy task, but Jamie's enthusiasm and commitment to delivering her best has culminated in this outstanding achievement. Clients who find their way to Jamie will enjoy working with a very gentle soul who exudes great compassion and skill when guiding them in their quest for emotional freedom.
Please join me in congratulating Jamie!
Big hug, Sheri
Gabrielle Rutten, MD's

Andrea Partridge Expresses Gratitude For Her Husband's
Remarkable Recovery From A Traumatic Brain Injury
I can't believe it has been a year since my husband's accident and consequent severe traumatic brain injury, today, exactly. You have been on my mind quite regularly as I still haven't thanked you from the bottom of my heart. There is just so much to say.
I am still in awe, speechless, grateful, appreciative, beyond words, that you did send Andy some healing last year asap when requested. His recovery initially was absolutely miraculous.
Miraculous recovery physically: He had a bilateral basal skull fracture, subdural haematoma and intracerebral bleed all classed as a severe traumatic brain injury.
The Neurosurgeons had predicted for him to be deaf (fracture was through both sides of the area of the hearing nerve) and unable to speak (bleeding area in the speech centre) or understand needing months of intensive rehab. Interesting even then I knew that this is not true as he heard, understood and spoke perfectly even on the 3rd day. I thanked my knowledge of EFT about taking on limiting beliefs of health care professionals. I totally knew what they predicted was wrong and thought of all the many people who belief stuff like that and stress for nothing.
He was able to stand right from the start which kept him physically strong only having some slight balance issues.
He was transferred to the brain injury rehab centre on day 6 while still mostly sleeping with a very low heart rate which could have led to quite a few complications as he wasn't even eating or drinking at that stage. However, all went well in regard to him recovering very slowly waking up a bit more every day.
Mindset has been the biggest issue for him putting his whole body and mind into stress mode and, as you and I know, hindering the healing big time.
That will do for now, the main aim of this e-mail was to thank you from the bottom of my heart and tell you what an amazing man you are and how powerful your healing was and my admiration for you. A man on a mission, living his purpose to the fullest, shining his light profoundly. You are an inspiration to me and so many more. The legacy you are going to leave behind one day will be hard to match.
Love, Andrea Partridge
