Arthritic shoulder pain subsides and loving flashes occur as a result of an Optimal EFT practice group.

Hi Everyone,

Here is a down-to-earth experience from Sue Wilson.  She says, "In the second flash, I had an overwhelming feeling of love.  In amazement, the thought came to me "how can you not love everything?" I tested it by thinking of someone I was having issues with and the love didn't change. I was at complete peace and in awe of the world and life. The peaceful energy running through me was unlike anything I had ever felt and I was filled with gratitude."

e-hugs, Gary


Blessings Gary,

I found your program about the time of your first webinar. Since then I have continued learning about EFT. I belong to an Optimal EFT practice group with Judy W., Kathilyn S., & Elaine N. I have also participated in Sheryl and Howard's group. I have also been doing sessions with Judy.

I have osteoarthritis in most of my joints ... knee replacement etc. My left shoulder had pain rated at 8-9. i would wake several times during the night with pain and had limited movement for over a year.  I used a beginner's tapping form of EFT and got only temporary relief.  After using Optimal EFT, however, my pain is for the most part gone, with occasional minor flare ups at about a 2-3.

More importantly, I had two experiences or flashes.

In one I clearly saw what pain was..I could see it as sort of a dark smoke or cloud separate from me and it all made sense.  [GC COMMENT:  Difficult to know what this means but, to me, it suggests that pains or discomforts are not really of the body.  Rather, they are "out there" and only seem to be part of the body.  Along these lines, A Course In Miracles maintains that all body pains, as well as body pleasures, are illusions ... part of the dream we have created.]

In the second flash, I had an overwhelming feeling of love.  In amazement, the thought came to me "how can you not love everything?" I tested it by thinking of someone I was having issues with and the love didn't change. I was at complete peace and in awe of the world and life. The peaceful energy running through me was unlike anything I had ever felt and I was filled with gratitude. This only lasted a few minutes.  Interestingly, it was some time after that experience that my shoulder pain subsided.  Not sure if there is a direct connection but thought I would mention it.

So far, I have not made any progress on the fatigue that I had spoken to you about, but I am hopeful.

I don't especially get deep when doing Optimal EFT and, like so many others, sometimes my mind wanders. I also have a hard time generating the love that I think makes it so effective, but sometimes I can feel The Unseen Therapist entering our sessions and I feel I bring valuable insights to the group through her. When I had the above loving "flash" I was generating a loving state at the time.

Peace and continued Love are my wishes for you as you do this valuable work.

Sue Wilson
