Hi Everyone,

This practical use of surrogate EFT by Jack Foriska brought about several of them unexpected.

Hugs, Gary

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to share a wonderful EFT experience that involved surrogate tapping and my grandson.  I have a three-year-old grandson and an 18-month-old granddaughter.

My daughter and her husband had a busy Saturday planned and I volunteered to babysit for them.  (I consider this an opportunity not a chore because I do not get as much time with them as I would like; more on this aspect later.)

I picked up my granchildren early that morning and so their Dad had to get them up earlier than normal.  Dominic (grandson) was not happy about this to put it mildly.  He was having what you might call an episode.  I got the two of them in the car and headed down the road trying to ignore Dominic’s tirade. 

I pulled into the local coffee shop to get a cup of coffee, hoping he would settle down while I was inside.  I parked where I could see them and went inside.  I could tell he was up to something but did not pay much attention.  When I returned to the car he was screaming more than ever, and I saw that he had vandalized my rear window shelf.  Grandpa got ready to pitch a fit of his own.

Instead, I put my coffee on the roof of the car and began to tap on myself surrogately on Dominic’s behalf … Even though I had to get up early and I am tired and cranky, I know that my Daddy and Grandpa love me anyway … Even though I do not like being bossed around, I know my Dad and Grandpa want the best for me … Even though I am really mad, I deeply and completely love myself and I know that my Grandpa loves me too.

Eyebrow:  I am tired and cranky

Side of Eye:  I am really pissed off

Under Eye:  I am tired and cranky

Under Nose:  I really didn’t want to get up

Chin:  I am tired and cranky

Collarbone:  I am tired and cranky

Under Arm:  I’m mad at my grandpa

Top of Head:  Even though I am mad at my Dad and my Grandpa, I love myself and I know they love me too.

This was all I needed to do.  He was sound asleep by the time I got to the CB tapping point.  My granddaughter Chelsi, watched this all very intently and I could tell it had an impact on her as well. Dominic slept very peacefully for two hours.  When he woke up he was in a great mood and we all had a wonderful day.

Hold on to your hats however because I am not through yet.  This had a far-reaching impact that was not immediately apparent.

My son-in-law comes from a very competitive family.  It seems like we are in a contest as to who is the best grandparent.  Since I used to have a drinking problem and was not always on the good side of the law, while the other Grandpa is a County Sheriff, I carry the “Black Sheep Grandpa” label and we do not like each other much.  They live closer and spend more time with the kids; therefore, it has been hard for Dominic to trust me or to show his affection because of this.

A week after tapping on his behalf, I met my daughter and son-in-law at the park.  I had just pulled in the parking lot and was getting ready to get out of the car when a voice (Dominic) outside my window said, “Hi Grandpa, hurry up, I’ve been waiting for you.”  There was a huge smile on his face and one on mine.  He has never done anything like this before. 

It has been like pulling teeth to get him to respond to me let alone meet me with a smile and a happy greeting.  I have had to beg for goodbye hugs and it has always taken a while for him to decide whether to respond to me.  He “got it” that his Grandfather loves him that day.  Since then, our relationship is on a new level.  We are best Buds and he cries if I do not hug him.

There is not any amount of money I would trade this for.  EFT is definitely changing "My World."

Warm regards to everyone,

Jack Foriska
