A Quality Idea - Surrogate Tapping with Magic Buttons Bear
Here's more glowing evidence of the value of surrogate EFT. Linda Wood from the UK describes the many benefits of tapping on a toy bear in behalf of ourselves or others. I know this sounds woo-woo to many ... but you may as well get used to it. We have far too many of these reports on our website to ignore this phenomenon. It is easily explainable in spiritual terms (we are all connected) and through the findings of quantum physics.
By Linda Wood
Over a year ago I had a Divine Inspiration to develop a tapping button bear. The idea came to me seemingly out of nowhere and wouldn't leave me alone until I'd acted upon it. I experimented with different ways of making a bear, ways of sewing on buttons and different types of buttons until I'd come up with a bear that I liked. I hand sewed several of these. However, I didn't know where to go from there with this idea.
Magic Buttons is here to help spread the healing work of EFT to children. Gary, recently I've been using Magic Buttons in my workshops for surrogate healing with the most amazing success. Following are two different experiences.
1. Before the most recent workshop, I asked all my trainees to bring both a picture of
themselves and one of someone else that they'd like to send EFT healing to. We first started with ourselves. Since so many people have a tough time getting their head around surrogate healing/tapping, let alone working with a Teddy Bear, I wanted them to actually FEEL and EXPERIENCE for themselves the benefits of this most amazing way of using EFT.
I asked each of them to pick out a Magic Button Bear, lay the picture of themselves over his tummy so as to help sharpen their focus and intention. I then had them do an inventory of their own body to find a tension or pain, getting very specific with their mental description and determine a level of intensity on a scale of 0 to 10.
Next, I led them through a little ritual to balance our energies, invite in our higher energies,
to also connect our higher energies to each other, and asked that this healing be sent to
wherever it's needed most and if there's any left over, for it to be taken to those who most
need it, wherever they might be. We then began tapping ON the Magic BEAR for our OWN
pains or tensions.
As we began our tapping set-ups and rounds, probably the most skeptical man in the group began to become very fidgety and suddenly had a confused look on his face. As we all continued to tap on our bears, I asked him if something was coming up.
He looked quite surprised and said, "Well, yes, something is. It's an anxiety of some kind."
I then switched from using generic words, to using his words and did another round for
"this anxiety, I wonder what it is, etc." He began moving about even more and suddenly
said, "Wow, it's something to do with money."
We all continued tapping on our bears using his words until we had zeroed in on his issue
and reduced it. Along the way we had been checking with the others and they had all been
considerably reducing their numbers.
There was a look of awe on everyone's face not only as they noticed their own changes, but also as they noticed what was going on with this man with the money issues.
The results of this were most amazing, surprising and just as effective as if we'd been tapping on ourselves. We had even included a couple rounds saying, "All this anxiety, all this money stuff and all I'm doing is tapping on this silly stuffed bear. I can't believe this is happening but I can feel it happening so I know it's real, etc." After we'd brought everyone down to a zero and checked and tested, we then moved on to tapping for someone else.
2. We brought out the pictures of our loved ones and began our rounds on them,
with the picture lying over Magic's tummy as we tapped directly on Magic Button Bear.
Again, magical things happened. One lady immediately tuned in to her surrogate person
and began to feel and express their emotions so we all began tapping for her as well and
using her words until we brought down the level of intensity.
We had no way of knowing what we'd done for the others that we'd tapped for, of course,
but had direct evidence that something unexplainable had definitely happened in both
exercises merely by tapping on Magic Buttons Bear.
Gary, my mission is to help people understand the power of Surrogate tapping and
hopefully Magic Buttons Bear will be vehicles to help spread the word of this most amazing
healing power of EFT.
There are so many more ways of using this powerful technique, including role playing.
Example: I've given a Magic Buttons Bear to a teacher to use at school for when her class is disruptive. Pull out Magic, explain that he will show them where their own Magic Buttons are. Talk and have them tap along and show them how they already feel better.
If the teacher pulls the bear out every time the class is disruptive, before long it will be like
Pavlov's dog, the kids will be mentally tapping at the mere sight of the Magic Button Bear.
She has just begun using this with very interesting results.
I'd like to get these to every teacher in every school in every country and show them how to use them and in fact, to every child, every parent, etc. to help bring to the world the amazing healing power of the vehicle of EFT even when you are tapping on an inanimate object.
Thank you, Gary for letting me share this exciting story with you and thank you for your dedication to this most amazing Spiritual gift!
