EFT, short for Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a great holistic healing method that has worked wonders before my eyes. In my opinion, the name does not do the method justice, as it can help with so many physical conditions. Having used this method for many years, I am still amazed when I see yet another unexpected result. This is especially so when the logical part of me has already deemed it impossible.

I have today been blessed to witness just such an event, and naturally want to tell you about it. "Betty" (not her real name) was told by her doctors that her heart rate had to come down. She had already suffered a heart attack, and her doctors were worried about her heart racing so much. We had tapped (done EFT) on other issues before but not specifically for the heart rate. My first reaction upon hearing this news was to want to suggest that we tap on it. The second reaction, which seemed to follow within nano-seconds, was not to be so silly, of course it couldn't work. Discussing my thoughts about it with Betty, she urged me to try, and so with much trepidation, I devised a way.

I started by feeling Betty's pulse. It was 94 beats a minute. So we tapped:
"Even though my heart is beating 94 beats a minute..."

I felt her pulse again. It was 92. It could have been a coincidence. We tapped again something liked
"Even though my heart is beating 92 times a minute, ..."
"I ask my heart to beat a little slower now..."
After a round of such statements, I felt Betty's pulse again. It was down to 90! My logical mind still tried to explain it away, but We carried on anyway. After another round, I took her pulse again. I thought I must have got distracted and missed some beats, so I counted again. I was astounded. It was down to 74!

Wow! I then taught Betty how to measure her pulse and gave her some statement suggestions, instructing her to do it a few times a day. I also wrote a letter for her doctors, in case they worry how come her heart rate had suddenly dropped so much.

So that is the story. To be honest, I have seen and heard of accomplished Yogis controlling their heart rate at will. But this, this is really amazing. This is with a skill so easy, a baby can learn it in minutes. This is awesome.
