Say It Like You Mean It!

October 29th, 2010 No comments

Sometimes those who are new to EFTcan be a little confused as to why they are repeating the “reminder phrase” as they tap down all the acupressure points.  It  can also become a very mechanical process or procedure where they are not really feeling the emotion that they keep repeating as they tap all the points.

The most important factor is to actually be FEELING the emotion as you tap the points and repeat the word.  In fact, if you only felt the emotion and didn’t say anything as you tapped on the points - EFT would still provide amazing results!

It is also possible to say a certain phrase or another word that “triggers” an emotional reaction as you tap down the points instead of saying the description of the emotion.  For example if someone once said to you “You’re a horrible mother” and that made you feel “guilty” you could say “horrible mother” as you tapped each of the points instead of “guilty” because it’s actually that particular phrase that elicits a strong reaction within you – not the word “guilty”.  What you will find after tapping is that when you say that particular phrase again you will react calmly instead of feeling guilt.

Give it a try and see what happens!

Happy tapping…

Peeling the “Emotional” Layers of an Onion

October 29th, 2010 No comments

We’ve all heard of this analogy before and its a great way to gain a better understanding of the unlimited potential of EFT!

What I often find when working with clients is that the negative emotions and beliefs are often layered and intertwined.   After we’ve done a round or two of EFT on a specific emotion or thought I alway get them to “test” the effectiveness of EFT by repeating back to me the statement or memory or story that initially triggered the stong emotion.  When they say it out loud and then can laugh about it because it no longer seems “true” after EFT, it is recommended to just quietly listen to the next natural occuring thought that occurs.

This is the best way to peel the emotional layers of the onion! Once you’ve cleared an issue and have tested it, then listen for the next automatic thought or where the mind naturally wants to go.  Often the subconscious mind will effortlessly direct you in the right direction of the next layer to be tapped on!

For example:  Sometimes after tapping on anger issues one might find that it makes no sense to feel angry anymore  because all they feel is sadness instead.  Once the sadness is tapped on one might find that underneath that is an abandoned feeling for example.  Keep tapping on all the layers until the resulting feeling is nothing but calm and peaceful.

Happy Tapping!

A “Tap” a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!

October 16th, 2010 1 comment

Now…an apple a day can keep the doctor away too but daily tapping with EFT provides some amazing benefits!  Regular tapping can be incorporated into your daily routine just like you would meditate or exercise or brush your teeth on a regular basis.  Applying EFT every day is a wonderful way to consistently keep your energy system in balanced and flowing freely which will allow you to experience life in a more balanced way too.

You can choose to be very specific or more general with your daily tapping.   Normally, more ”general” tapping covers to big of a problem to provide any significant results but imagine if you dedicated yourself to chipping away at it a little bit every day – slowly but surely you will begin to see small changes in your life. Sometimes, slow and steady wins the race too!  More specific tapping will obviously provide more permanent and faster results.

Your job is to notice your own patterns and habits (of thinking and behaviour) and tap on them daily.  Always remember to add “forgiving yourself” into the set up statement if it’s an old habit or pattern.  It may just be a pattern of negative thinking that you want to tap on or something more related to your physical health.

Regardless, if there is one consistent “problem” in your life keep tapping on it!  The universe will mirror back to you what you need to tap on – it’s simply your job to recognize it and be consistent with your desire to heal.

Happy tapping!

I wish you peace beyond all understanding…

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall…

October 12th, 2010 No comments

Do you often have conflicts with others and difficulty in your relationships?  Wish others would start treating you with more respect?  The good news is that EFT can help!  But one must begin by looking within or “looking in the mirror”…

Other people mirror back our hidden emotions and feelings, which allows us to recognize them and eventually heal them. “Projection” , as described by Sigmund Freud, is a fascinating phenomenon.  Projection is an involuntary transfer of our own unconscious behavior onto others, so it appears to us that these qualities actually exist in the other people.

We all have some unacceptable parts of our personalities and we tend to attribute these qualities -as a defense mechanism- to external objects and other people.  So whatever we don’t own about ourselves we project onto other people.

We see only that which we are.  So whatever it is that upsets you or bothers you most about other people is usually an unresolved or unacknowledged aspect within yourself.  Not exactly the news that you were probably hoping to hear but there is unlimited potential for healing and changing your life once you truly understand “projection”.  Since we can not really change other people anyway, the power of course only lies in changing yourself.

So….the next time you notice a pattern in how others are treating you ask yourself, with an open mind and heart, if you treat yourself the same in one way or another?

Then….begin EFT! Focus on forgiving yourself and others and see what happens!

I wish you peace beyond all understanding…

How to Find True Peace in Your Life…

October 12th, 2010 No comments

It is our nature, as human beings, to search for a state of peace in our lives.  Most people, at the deepest of levels, really just want to experience peace, joy, unconditional love and happiness.

Want to know the secret?  The true path to experiencing peace in your life?

Peace ~ It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

Most of us are looking for peace “outside of ourselves” because it seems like others are “making us feel” angry, frustrated, annoyed, worried, guilty, ashamed, etc.  But the truth is that all of those negative emotions actually exist within us because of how we are reacting to our external environment.  Therefore, peace can only begin “within you” by choosing to react differently to your external environment and practicing being calm in your heart no matter what is going on around you.

How can you do this?

With consistent and regular use of EFT of course!  Everytime you have a negative feeling or emotion during your day simply notice what or who you have reacted to and start tapping!  Soon enough you will find peace within yourself more often than you ever thought possible.  EFT will provide amazing changes in your life on a long term basis if you do a little bit of tapping each and every day.

I wish you peace beyond all understanding…

Do I Have to Use the Gamut Point Procedure??

October 9th, 2010 No comments

Many clients ask about the seemingly strange Gamut Point Procedure and whether or not it’s even necessary.  In fact, some EFT therapists  have taken the Procedure out completely and find that the tapping itself works wonders.

So….do you have to use the Gamut Point Procedure (GPP)?

That depends!  If  you find that just tapping isn’t working then try implementing the GPP.  If you’re working on an issue that envokes a very strong emotional response, then use the GPP.  If you are resolving a past trauma with intense feelings then the GPP is strongly recommended.   If you seem to have constant chaos, stress and problems in your life then use GPP as often as you can.

Want to know why…?

The eye movements and alternating humming and counting acutally stimulates right brain and left brain repeatedly, similar to another technique called “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing” (E.M.D.R.) which is widely recognized in the area of Trauma research and healing.  For example, when your eyes look right you fire the left side of the brain and vise versa.  When you hum it fires the right side of the brain and counting fires the left. This repeated stimulation of both sides of the brain creates a “whole brain” experience or a blending of both hemispheres, which allows the unresolved emotion stored in the subconscious to move forard to the frontal lobe where the emotion is processed and resolved.  It also allows a part of the brain called the “amygdala” to begin to relax and process the memory.  The amygdala is the part of the brain responsible for managing our response to fear, stress and trauma.

So even though this wierd and wacky technique seems to have fallen to the wayside,  remember that it can be just as powerful, if not even more powerful then the tapping itself!!

If feeling anxious, try using just the GPP without tapping and see what happens!  You might be surprized…

I wish you peace beyond all understanding…

The #1 Question to Ask to Find “The Root Cause” of a Problem…

October 2nd, 2010 No comments

E.F.T. works wonders for many so many negative emotions but sometimes we might find that those same negative emotions come back again and again!  It is not that EFT is not working but rather the application of EFT and the art of detective work that needs to be modified.

Most of our “problems” or consistent negative emotions in our life are sort of like a “weed” for example.  If you are tapping on the surface issue then we are simply cutting the top of the weed off and…of course….the weed will eventually grow back and we will feel the negative emotions again.  This is why the greatest EFT healings come from addressing the root cause of the emotions!

It is important to ask yourself the following question:  “What is my earliest memory of this same feeling?”

It is essential to go back to the root cause of the emotion which usually stems from a belief system developed in childhood.  Some of us may not ‘want to go there” but if you want to pull the weed up from the root in order to make sure it never grows back again then it is best to go back to when the belief system began in your life and apply EFT specifically to all the events that contributed to that belief system.  This is best done in a systematic way if  possible, working through each of the events one at a time until the belief system collapses.

When in doubt about how to do deeper detective work yourself, it is important to find a good EFT therapist to work with you and guide you in the process.  You can find an EFT therapist near you by clicking on the “EFT Therapist Directory” in the column to the left of your screen.

I wish you peace beyond all understanding…
