Dancing case: "Even though I know how to do EFT, I still didn't trust myself."

This is an ideal case for those who are timid about trying EFT, especially on themselves. Lonnie Graf had these self-doubts regarding her use of EFT on a form of dancing stage fright. As it turns out, she was becoming panicky about her upcoming dancing performance and so was compelled to try EFT. It was either that or experience panic during her performance.

By Lonnie Graf

At 62, I have been taking ballroom lessons for the last year. I have loved to dance since I was a little girl and had never taken lessons or learned steps other than sixth grade ballroom so finally took the leap and I'm so grateful that I did. This past Friday at an Arthur Awards Show I was to perform my first routine, a combination Rumba/Argentine Tango. I knew the routine really well, but during my lesson Thursday afternoon, I felt my smile freeze which was an indication to me that I was thinking about the spectators being there.

Then that night I kept waking up thinking about the performance. By Friday morning I was having a panic attack with the energy surging through my body. All I could think was there is no way I will be able to make it through my performance. So being a believer in our angels loving to help us, I asked my special support team to help me in every way they could.

I had heard about EFT a year ago and had ordered the manual and many of the videos and thought it was awesome and shared it with others. And yet I only used it on myself once briefly. For some reason I didn't feel comfortable with my ability to use it even though it served me well in that brief period.

Well, Friday morning I had one of Gary's emails and decided to check it out and sure enough there was a reference to how it had helped a woman who was afraid to dance. ;-) Even though I know how to do EFT, I still didn't trust myself. I emailed a couple of people with a HELP request about doing a phone session on a performance that night. As I realized I may not hear back, I finally pulled myself together to do it for myself just in case. I did three rounds each set and I did three sets each hour for three hours and began to feel much calmer and then found I was beginning to look forward to the experience. I did one more set two hours before I left for good measure.

It was amazing how I was able to calm myself down to the point that I had no more anxiety. I felt really good during the evening and just before my performance I had that excited feeling with the edge to it which is so natural.....no racing heart, no utter fear. I had a great performance and felt really good about myself. I had chosen in my EFT rounds to feel totally relaxed during my performance, to enjoy the experience and to possibly even expand myself. It all happened! The judge seemed really impressed. The next day I had a critique with the judge where he rates your performance and he gave me a 95 - my highest score - and he was unaware this was my first time to perform a routine. As an added bonus at the Show, there were drawings for door prizes at the end and I actually won the top prize of five dance lessons. ;-) I was flying high!

I have to say the whole experience was so empowering for me........especially as I realized the guidance my angels had given me with the email on EFT, how I was actually open to receive it and then trusted myself to be able to take care of the situation. And then to see how beautifully it all played out because I asked and trusted and acted on it!!!

Gratefully, Lonnie
