I used a visualization technique whereby Sarah imagined a bright pinpoint of light illuminating her shoulder and asked her to describe what she saw in there. The answer was a dark, round, spot of pain and the intensity was 4 on a scale of 0 to 10. As we talked and tapped about her sadness the pain in her shoulder moved in to her neck and she developed spasms. Her arm and fingers also became very warm and tingly. GC COMMENT: This is a common occurrence within EFT and the EFT method of following after the moving discomfort is known as Chasing the Pain. A couple more rounds of EFT, using the adjusted reminder phrases Even though I still have some of this 'pain…, discomfort, sadness, imbalance, and she felt calm and relaxed.
I checked in on the intensity and she said it was 0. We measured her arms, as we had done earlier, and they were exactly the same length. She was actually standing in balance without discomfort. As we left that night she kept saying as she laughed "this feels really weird, I have never been able to walk in balance before". I guess EFT can balance the physical body while balancing our energy system at the same time.
I warned her the frozen shoulder might return as her cells re-create from what they were (body memory) and she would have to practice EFT, diligently, for herself for 21 days (think of it as changing the habits of your cell re-creation) until she had developed healthy cells again. GC COMMENT: This is an interesting theory and may have substantial merit. However, I have seen countless physical corrections occur without it.
It is my intuition, when people have chronic physical problems, to prescribe EFT 3 times a day for at least 21 days once the pain has been relieved the first time. This seems to overcome the re-creation of those cells that were created with pain receptors that attract pain peptides to them.
Follow up: Two months later: Sarah continues to walk in balance. She originally felt resistance to my prescription of tapping 3 times/day to maintain her balanced state but, being a good EFT student, thought to tap on that resistance and is now mostly pain free and walking tall.
I hope someone will get something useful from this story. Thanks for everything.
