The Beginners Guide to EFT: Part 3

Finding the Words in EFT

This is a follow on from: The Beginners Guide to EFT: Part 1

In the first part of this series we looked at how to tap; where to tap and how to combine that with words.

In The Beginners Guide to EFT: Part 2, we looked at the structure of the set-up phrase and how we find the reminder phrase:

This is a complex area. EFT has moved on dramatically since it was first developed and with its evolution has come a blossoming out in the way language is used. For this simple guide I am (at least initially) going to focus on the most simple type of wording that can be used.

The most simple way to address any issue with EFT is to find the words that represent “the problem”. (More complex versions of EFT use words that represent the problem but also use positive wording)

 Part 1 used the phrase “the problem” to represent your issue. In reality we actually used the words that truly represent the problem, such as:

If a person has a headache and they are experiencing a “tight band of pain across the front of the head” then the words used would be:

Set Up

“Even though I have this tight band of pain across the front of the head, I completely and totally love and approve of myself”

The reminder phrase are the words that you say as you tap on each acupoint. In this example the phrase would be:

 “this tight band of pain across the front of the head”

This phrase would be repeated as you tap on each point as follows;

Eyebrow Point: “this tight band of pain across the front of the head”

Side of the Eye Point: “this tight band of pain across the front of the head”

Under the Eye Point: “this tight band of pain across the front of the head”

Etc

Another example:

Person who feels nervous at the thought of standing in front of an audience. They know they are nervous because of a jittery, butterfly feeling in their stomach.

EFT could be set up as follows:

Karate Point: “So even though I have this nervous jittery feeling in my stomach when I think about standing in front of an audience, I completely and totally love and approve of myself”.

“this nervous jittery feeling in my stomach when I think about standing in front of an audience” would be the reminder phrase.

Generally the more specific you are the better the results you will achieve with EFT.  So get specific with your words.

All the best,
