Affirmations? Blocks to EFT Working


Since this issue came up at a recent EFT Training course that I ran, I thought it might be useful to post on this point.

Clearing the blocks that can stop EFT working is crucial if you want to get results. Dehydration is a common block, one that can generally be simply rectified by just drinking water.

A less obvious block is being unclear about the EFT process itself. I have often seen people block EFT because they fear that if they focus on “the problem”  and keep repeating the words that represent the problem,  they are somehow embedding it and making the problem worse. They mistakenly think that repeating the words that represent their problem is the same as repeatedly stating an affirmation.

The truth is that it isn’t the same. In EFT we tune into the problem by using the words that represent the issue and then we tap on different acupoints on the body and re-balance the energy. When this is done a person could say the same words that represent their problem but would find now that those words no longer resonate with them, they are just words. Effectively speaking the power has been taken from the words.  

Understanding and accepting that EFTs focus on the problem is not embedding it but is in fact taking the power away from it, can clear this block to EFT working. 

 All the best,
