EFT Tapping is a technique that is really catching on and is a quicker way than anything else I’ve come across when it comes to reducing anxiety, panic and stress on-the-spot. And I’m someone who looked long and hard!
I was out and about in Canterbury in a department store, checking out the shoes as you do, and about to leave the floor searching for the best exit via an escalator.
As I turned the corner there was an elderly lady who’d fallen and was huddled on the ground. A cluster of well-wishers had gathered offering kind words of support, but ultimately she was out shopping on her own. She’d inadvertently been trying to go up the steps of the escalator that was coming down towards her.
An easy mistake!
But she had had a shock and was in a bit of a fluster, so I stepped up and asked if I could ‘tap’ on her, while explaining this little technique that ‘calms the nervous system’. A range of store staff arrived in dribs’n’drabs and I just found myself explaining what I was doing at the same time as tapping on her all-the-while.
Finally a manager stepped up and said he’d heard of this the technique, by this time she was calmed and ready to move off and leave the store. I accompanied her to the bus station and she was absolutely fine.
But when you think about it, she was elderly and walking with the aid of two sticks. So having a quick-action technique like this to hand is something we could all do with having up-our-sleeve in order to release the shakiness of a sudden trauma, no matter what.
In Preparation For EFT Tapping
With that lady I just tapped on the points I’ve written out below (5-7 times on each point). With clients we go into a lot more depth and dig into what lays beneath and this technique is great at getting to the heart of the matter and working quickly.
And if want to participate in a ’round’ of EFT (the Emotional Freedom Technique) then it’s handy to have a diagram of the Tapping Points to refer to.
There are meridian points found all over the body, as used in Acupuncture, but for this process we only use those found on the face, head, upper-body and hands. And this helps get you started right away.
The Tapping Points
[captionpix align=”right” imgsrc=”http://www.abcsimpleas.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Tapping-Points-Photo.jpg” captiontext=”The Tapping Points”]
Here are the points:
- The side of the hand is referred to as the Karate Chop Point
- EB = Eyebrow (on the bone)
- SE = Side of the eye – other end of the eyebrow (on the bone)
- UE = Under the eye (on the bone)
- UN = Under the nose (in the ski-slope)
- UM = Under the mouth (in the crevice)
- CB = Collar bone (1 inch down from the clavical bone and 1 inch in towards the shoulder)
- UA = Under the arm
- TH = Top of the head (towards but not on the crown)
The finger points (not illustrated) are found at the base of the nail on the flesh side of each digit and there is a 9-gamut point which is explained inside my EFT Tapping Guide if you’d like to sign up for the newsletter below or to the right hand side, and receive more information.
And what we’ve covered here will suffice for the duration of a demonstration.
What Else Do I Need
Having paper and a pen handy to make a note of anything you want to write down so you know what you’re addressing and how you feel about it at the start of working on it. Just as an aside EFT can be quick (and if that doesn’t happen during a quick demo that’s okay too, it doesn’t mean you’re not doing it right, it just indicates that there was probably something more relevant to work on first.
It’s often best when starting out to learn it with an experienced practitioner, who’ll help you get out of your own way. And that way you get into your rhythm, it’s like anything the more you do it the better you get at using it effectively.
The types of wording and the full procedure are found in a fuller report than there’s space for here, but the above gives you a springboard to leap off from and ‘play’ with it.
What To Do Next
If you’d like to request a demonstration for a company or group, if you’d like a chat to explore in more detail just fill out the contact form here.
Or please sign up for the EFT Tapping Guide to get better at carrying out the technique in more detail, and find out through the newsletter what is really going on when it comes to getting free of health symptoms and learning how they came about in the first place, because disease is not a random mistake.
Learning what your symptoms are conveying through the brain / mind / body connection is one of the most powerful things you can discover. It’s revolutionised how I work with clients and how quickly they can get free of physical, mental, emotional and behavioural problems.
