Fainting Prevented by EFT Newcomer
Debra Trojan helps a pregnant women about to faint in a store. The woman experienced relief very quickly, though she explained away the tapping as having distracted her from her panicked, sweating, near fainting, sitting-on-the-floor condition.

I was quite startled by this experience, especially since I'm just a beginner with EFT. (I've only read the manual and website and then used it on a couple of family members and friends.)
I was at an electronics store, waiting at the service counter when a stranger called out to me. I turned around and saw a woman sitting on the floor looking as if she was going to pass out. I knelt down beside her and asked her what was wrong. She told me she was pregnant and that she was about to faint. She said she wanted someone to know this before she fainted so that no one would freak out when they saw her lying there.
I asked the staff to get her some water. In an attempt to comfort her, I told her not to worry; everything would be fine. However, my words didn't seem to phase her; she turned white and began to panic. She was sweating profusely and looked scared to death. So much so, that I began to panic; I didn't know what to do. I had never been in this kind of situation before.
Then, I thought of EFT. I told her that I wanted to try something on her that I thought might help and that it was going to seem silly but that she should just go along with it because it might really help her. Before she could say anything, I started tapping with the Setup:
"Even though I feel like I'm going to faint, I deeply and completely love and accept myself."
She whispered the phrase while following my lead with the tapping. We got through the first sequence; then the 9 Gamut. As I was starting the finishing sequence, she abruptly stopped and said, "Oh, it's a distraction." (That was my first sign that it was working.) I told her that we were almost through and that she should continue to follow my lead; it would be just another minute and we would be finished. She indulged me and a minute later she was telling me that she was fine.
Please note: She didn't say that she was feeling better; she said she was "fine." I said, "Are you sure? Do you want me to walk you to your car?" She responded, "No, that's not necessary; I'm 100 percent!" She got right up and thanked me and was on her way.
Boy, did I feel like a magician or what?
