GARY, still here – just sharing

Filed under: Gary Craig back w/ newsletter — Jan Turner @ 7:48 pm

Where’s my mind ? – should’ve put this up months ago

Tho I have often posted on EFT and my never-ending adoration and gratitude for Gary Craig;  his manner,  great gift to the world as founder of EFT and the enormous generosity, patience and love which shines from every word he utters. .  .  .  oh yes — this is a very special man.  When he retired a few years back (doctor’s orders),  it hit me like a ton of bricks and I openly grieved and shared all with my readers.    He left his gift to the world.    

What followed seemed to be  an enormous struggle for someone else to fill that void, take the helm,. . .lead the way – – many, many, presumably all learned followers of EFT and devoted to Gary.   To someone like me,  I found it not-so-pretty.  Eventually, mine is bigger or better than yours developed into an unattractive ‘race’ to what?. . control  a precious gem which had been freely given?    During those years, I was still deeply engaged with my blog, reveling in the pleasure I derived from it. .  .  hardly noticed as I  began to slip and slide away from daily use.  Pain or a pity-party would remind me smartly. . .I needed attention FOR ME!  

Tho I had been involved with many alternative forms of healing with my husband from the earliest years in the 1950’s (we were both independent ‘seekers’ from our earliest years);  even so,  EFT proved to be such an easy path to fall into because of its great simplicity;  no tools necessary,   no religious affiliation required, or attendance with any group needed. . .can be done anywhere, anytime and for almost anything.  Personally, I have hugely benefited for many physical and emotional issues and also have used it for me or others who would allow me to use it.  It isn’t a question of being a ‘believer,’  I’ve seen and witnessed the benefits both on self and others, either in my presence or at a distance.  It’s a good thing.  

But that was then.   And I believe I have posted on Gary being back, but I have not indicated that so very much is new and “UP-GRADED”.  Actually,  His EFT site is filled with information on different paths one can choose;  original EFT as he gave it out several decades ago, or one of the later techniques which seems to deal with deliberate conscious direction of the heart energy in a more subtle manner, almost contemplative in which one can realize that we are not constrained with either space or time. I will not  go deeper as no one can explain “stuff” like Gary can.  So, for your sake. . .go to Gary Craig’s  EFT site –  just put in browser, you’ll find it.  I have copied and pasted todays email from Gary, but the links don’t work  — just Google him.  

(As an aside,  I am weaning off the blog, even tho, my heart really isn’t in that choice.  Logistics!  Moving slower,  much to do;  never know what time we may have ahead of  us  and that disturbs me as so much yet I want to do.  Have wanted to do a smallish booklet or two on how to care for self for optimal health, especially in the light of our highly specialized, too- expensive health-care system.   Won’t be for everyone of courses as most people wouldn’t dream of concocting their own (medicines) supplements or experimenting using own body as a laboratory.   I do of course, and am successfully handling my heart condition,  COPD,  arthritis and of course — the biggie – Alzheimer’s disease for a decade or so.  The irony’s,  my beloved brain is doing better than all the rest — who knew this was even possible? – [thank you Dr Mary Newport].  

So between the slowdown of aging, and the alteration of my dominant new choice utilizing my discretionary time available, I have had enormous computer problems, finally acquiring a MAC which is driving me crazier.  I have remained in a constant state of change and frustration sometimes ready to take a hammer to all before taking time for EFT.   But am pursuing  the writing using Google docs and trying to wade my way thru.    Taking a cue from our recent papal visit, might some of you out there just send a kind thought my way?   Would be warmly welcomed,. .. .many thanks,    Jan)

“I truly feel that Optimal EFT is the most profound
healing method ever to be developed and
I thank you for bringing it to the world.” Paula Carey
Webinars: Our next Webinar will be on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at 10am Pacific time. Complete details and recommended preparation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There will be no Webinar on Saturday, October 24 as I will be at a Hawaiian conference on that date (see below). After that, future Webinars will be held every other SUNDAY (not Saturday)at 10am Pacific time. This will allow us to be joined by my special guest, Sheri Baker (in-depth ACIM student).

All of our past Webinars have been recorded. Click here to view them.


Reminder to those who would like to meet in Hawaii at the Meta-Health Conference: I haven’t done a live event for some time and would love to meet you in person at the META-Health Conference Oct. 24-28, 2015 at the Hilton Hawaiian Resort Waikiki Beach, Honolulu. Join my lecture, “Taking a Ride on EFT’s Magic Carpet,” and the Advanced Workshop where I will explore our newest advancement, Optimal EFT. In addition, we will have plenty of time to sit by the pool and share our EFT stories and skills.

The conference hosts offer a 2-FOR-1 ticket special and, if you really can’t attend in Hawaii, signup for the live stream broadcast of the conference (watch via PC, Smartphone or Tablet). Get your META-Health Conference Ticket at Hope to see you very soon live in Hawaii or virtually online.

PS: I am honored to join Integrative Medicine experts like Bernie Siegel MD (Art of Healing), Dr. Kwesi (Eye Specialist), Ocean Robbins (Food Revolution), Johannes R. Fisslinger (Founder META-Health University) and cancer, diabetes, heart disease and pain recovery META-Health Specialists.


Spiritual experience … “It has been strange and surreal to say the least but I think it really helped us understand time is an illusion.”: One of the concepts within Optimal EFT is that there is no time … it is an illusion. Throughout history, many people have written about “out of time” experiences but were, generally speaking, not taken seriously. Here is another example from long time EFT’er “Lani” (name withheld for privacy reasons). Do you believe it? Having had a spiritual experience myself , and thus being out of time, I find it quite plausible. Read More…


Barbara Loeding reports that her Scoliosis related pains vanished after 20 minutes of self-applied Optimal EFT: This report should open a few eyes … particularly for those with chronic back pain. Barb says, “I was lying in bed a few days later and closed my eyes and began to work on myself. Inviting in The Unseen Therapist..Immediately I saw a ball of light moving around my body. I kept the visualization going for a good 20 minutes. Then I got up and HOLY COW, I had no neck, shoulder, knee, low back or leg pain.”Please consult physicians on all medical issues.” Read more…

Optimal EFT Newbie gets impressive results with Diabetic Retinopathy: Claire Gerry helped her friend, Myra, with a vision issue that was severe enough to require a cane to help her “see” when she walked. Note how the vision improved and the cane became unnecessary. As a newbie to this process, Gerry aimed Optimal EFT at Myra’s symptoms. Further improvements are possible, of course, when the process is aimed at the emotional/spiritual causes. Please consult physicians on all medical issues. Read more…


More next time, Gary
