I was stunned by the response to the email I sent on Monday. (If you missed the email, you can check it out here .) I sent it as simply a piece of information and I didn’t expect what happened next.
Emails of encouragement came from all over the world. It was incredible!
One email stood out from the rest. It came from Jean-Paul who is one of my guys. And when I say “one of my guys” I mean he was in my EFT class in jail.
Not sure if you remember me. I took your class at the jail over a year ago. I have been attending a wellness peer run support group called Journey To Wellness here in NJ. I have been going there 2 days a week for about 6 months now. We do a little bit of yoga and meditation. I also attend a mindfulness group on Fridays and ocean mental health. I’ve been bringing up EFT over and over for a while now and getting a lot of interest. Last week I contacted a guy I met who teaches EFT and had him come meet the staff at Journey To Wellness. We will be starting an EFT group every Thursday this week!!! I can’t wait.
I know…that is awesome!
I emailed Jean-Paul to see if it was OK to share his email with you and if he wanted me to change his name for privacy. I received an even more stunning reply:
I don’t mind one bit. You don’t have to conceal identity if you don’t want to. This is something I am very passionate about and am looking to be more active in the near future.
Not sure if I mentioned but I will be starting school in Sept. for social work and cadc. I am going to do my damnedest to get them to let me into ocean county jail to teach mediation and EFT as well. It will be hard considering I’m a felon and have been locked up there but nothing is impossible.
Take a moment and digest that.
Go back and reread the second email he sent.
(Really, reread it…I’ll wait.)
My first thought was “Wow! That is fantastic and so inspiring.” My second thought was, “We ALL need to be showing this kind of dedication to improving our lives!”
Jean-Paul is taking his mental health seriously.
You need to be doing it as well.
I know you agree. AND I know you are busy, overwhelmed, and don’t know where to start.
That is OK.
You don’t have to do it all at once.
I have a great resource for you if you don’t know where to begin.

As always, let me know what I can do to be helpful!
PS: I told you on Monday that things were changing. These are the types of emails you can start to expect!

There Is So Much, I Don’t Know Where To Begin When Using EFT – I have a lot of issues that I want to use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)/Tapping on, but I don’t know where to begin. Should I deal with memories chronologically or should I approach them in chunks of related issues?
