Looking for a way to resolve some of those old negative emotions, or help with some illness, injury or infirmity? Here is a quick EFT lesson. Try it and let me know what you think.

  1. Choose a problem or challenge
  2. Tune in and rate the intensity of the negative feeling, on a scale from 0 to 10
  3. Begin the procedure
    1. Repeat affirmation 3 times while rubbing the “Tender Spot” or tapping the “Karate Chop Point”
    2. Say, “Even though I have this problem (insert your problem here and be very specific), I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”
    3. Reminder phrase
      1. This problem” (insert your problem here and again be very specific)
      2. Tap EFT Tapping Points beginning at the top of had and moving down with each statement.
      3. Tap all points 6-7 times, going through 2-3 rounds.
  4. Tune in again, rate feelings and note any changes
  5. Stay with original issue even if new thoughts arise; write them down for another session
  6. Repeat Step 3 using the new affirmation until you are at a zero (Emotional Freedom)
    1. “Even though I have some of this remaining problem (insert your problem here and be very specific), I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”

Remember to keep tapping; persistence is one of the keys to using EFT successfully. Zero means you no longer feel any negative physical or emotional load on the issue. If you are working on a memory, it should feel neutral; you can remember it without any discomfort.
