Hi Everyone,

Normally, a severe burn will be painful for several days and result in blisters. Not so for Rebecca Snyder.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

I have been an enthusiastic EFT'er for a couple of years now, and I am so grateful for this amazing tool.  I've had some amazing successes on myself and others, but I wanted to share the latest right now, because it comes under the category of "EFT First Aid".

Last night I was making dinner for a group of friends and, amid conversation, I took a pan out of a 400-degree oven and set it on the stove top.  I turned to answer a question, and without thinking, grabbed the handle of the pan without a mitt.  OUCH!

I immediately turned to the sink, and while I ran cold water over the burned left hand, started tapping with my right.  I didn't use a setup phrase, because the pain was intense and immediate.  I tapped first on this searing pain.  The tap water in Georgia this time of year is never really cold, so it didn't seem to be doing much good.  I continued tapping while I got a few ice cubes, and held them for about 5 minutes.

During this whole time, the conversation continued around me, my friends unaware that I had anything wrong with me.  (They're used to seeing me tap frequently, and since I didn't make a big fuss about the burn, they paid no attention.)  I wasn't really getting a lot of relief from the tapping I was doing, and I think it was because I was distracted by the conversation.  So I left the room and went to tap in concentration. 

I switched from "This pain" to how stupid I felt for having grabbed a 400 degree pan right after taking it out of the oven.  The pain began to diminish from a level of intensity of 10 out of 10 to perhaps a 7 out of 10.  I continued to tap on the stupidity … and again got stuck. 

So I switched to a setup of, Even though I did something stupid, I forgive myself, and ask my body's vast wisdom to heal the damage I did … then did the abbreviated basic recipe, alternating points with, I forgive my stupidity and My body's healing wisdom.  The pain went to 0 everywhere but the palm, where the most severe burn was, and that was maybe at a 2 out of 10. 

I started thinking about how bad it would be for me to try to work (I'm a hairstylist) with blisters on my hand, so I tapped a few rounds on, Even though burns always blister, and it would be impossible for me to do hair with blisters on my hand, I know my body can heal without blistering and allow the healing to pass that stage

The pain was at 0 everywhere on my hand, and the skin in the burned areas became sort of 'leathery'.  I put some healing oil on it, and went to have dinner with my friends.  All in all, I tapped for about 20 minutes.  I was able to enjoy my company for the rest of the evening, even to playing pool for an hour!

This morning, there's only a slight pinkness on my palm, and no pain whatsoever.

Thank you, Gary, for this incredible gift. 

With Love,

Rebecca Snyder
