Hi Everyone,

Here is a first class example of how EFT can be successfully used immediately after an injury. This article should be of immense value to athletes because it points the way to rapid healing.

I have been using EFT for about one year now, on myself and in my practice.  There have been great results during the past year.  Many times I have helped someone else with physical pain.  This past weekend I went skiing with my husband.  It was our first day on the slopes for the season and I was eager to use my new skis for the first time.  I am an intermediate skier and tend to stick with groomed slopes.  Although I know my abilities, I sometimes try to go on ski runs that are advanced just to test my progress.

This weekend was no exception.  After several runs on the slopes, I wanted to try one of the advanced, black diamond runs.  As soon as I turned to go down the slope I knew I was out of my league.  I tried to ski as cautiously as possible, but every time I made a turn I was out of control, I was going too fast, lost my balance and fell.  I lost one ski, one ski pole was dug deep into the snow and I felt a crack in my left knee.  Fortunately it wasn’t broken, but it did hurt a lot and I was only halfway down the slope.  I just lay in the snow and began tapping.

Even though my left knee hurts…

Even though I tried skiing on an advanced slope…

Even though it was stupid of me to ski here…

Even though my left knee hurts and I still need to get down the slope…

I tapped steadily for about five minutes.  The pain gradually receded from an intensity of 10 out of 10 to a 3 to a 1.  Finally, I began to dig my ski and pole out of the snow.  I put my ski back on and skied the remainder of that run.  At first I thought I was done skiing for the day, but by the time I reached the ski lifts I decided I wanted to go for another run on a groomed slope.  As my husband drove us home, I tapped the entire way home as well as periodically through that evening. Note that I tuned into a past event.

Even though I fell off the monkey bars in elementary school and badly bruised my knee…

Even though I couldn’t stay balanced on the monkey bars and slipped off of them…

Even though I was hanging upside down when I wasn’t supposed to…

Other times I have fallen, it has taken several weeks for me to fully recuperate.  By the next morning, my pain level was about 2 out of 10.  Once again I began tapping.  This time I wanted to tap on the motivator to go down the advanced ski slope.

Even though my left knee hurts…

Even though I wanted to challenge myself…

Even though I had confidence that I could ski down the advanced slope…

Even though I constantly try to go beyond my comfort level in order to improve my skill…

I got ready to go to work.  I started tapping with my clients on their issues.  I stopped thinking about myself and was focusing on being present for others.  At lunch I had a break.  The first thing that I noticed was that my knee didn’t bother me anymore.  My pain level was 0 out of 10.  I was so excited about this that I called to tell my husband.  I continued to feel good with no pain.  The next day my husband, son and I got to go skiing again and this time I stayed with the intermediate slopes.
