Can I tap on for positive affirmations? Such as ” no matter what – I feel happy and positive at all times all through the day ” or ” I am in the flow right now and I expect miracles” – tapping on the points 2/3 rounds and taking a deep breadth .

Hi madam.
I have a question.that is,Why do opposite things happen when we think or be positive ourself for something?Means,it attracts towards us exactly something opposite to what we tune to.Someone say,this is a law of opposite.In my life I was and am facing this opposite condition when I think positive.More clearly.When I think positve and make a postive picture or positive visualisation in my mind about it then I got completely opposite or negative results.And when I think negative and make a negative picture, then I get positive results.SO how to deal with problem by using EFT.Because it is imposible to keep the negative attitude or thinking and visualisation in whole life.Now I am very fearful about my future.Can you Please help me?Plz tell me the EFT script on this.waiting for your reply.

Natalie December 29, 2011 at 10:54 am

Kiran, I’m sure this must be very disturbing, to feel you need to keep a negative attitude in order for good things to happen in your life.

I would look in the direction of your core beliefs and vows you made as a child. We make these as our best strategies for keeping us safe and to ensure our protection from our family (tribe). You may strongly hold some beliefs like these:

My thoughts cause the opposite to happen.
I must always oppose everything.
When I say yes, I mean no.
It’s not safe to agree with things.
I must be contrary.
I cannot follow through with my wishes.
It’s dangerous for my dreams to come true.

You may have made a vow somewhere along the way that says something like,

“No matter what I think, plan or want, I will always cause the opposite to happen in my life.”

The steps to take with EFT to change these beliefs and vows involve tapping on the early incidents in which you made the beliefs and vows. Then using additional belief-altering techniques to release and install new beliefs.

For working with the early events, see my Growing Up Method. For how to change your beliefs, see a series of articles I’ve written, starting with this one of how to find your limiting beliefs.

You may also be interested in the course I’m starting next week, on January 5, called Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Life. In that course, I go into great depth in teaching you how to discover and change your limiting beliefs.

Hope this has helped!

Hi Natali, I’ve been experiencing social anxiety disorder (or social phobia) for 7 years. Also I occasionly experience pannic attacks. I’ve been searching for solutions to my problems for years. A friend gave me a DVD on law of attraction to watch. I started believing that I will find the solutions. I as a result I found your website. I tried EFT on things like pains n sicknesses and it worked instantly. But it’s taking some time on my phobia. So my question is will it take some time for eft to solve my phobia? I won’t stop doing eft. Can you give me some advice? And can I use eft to make myself look handsome?

Dear Natalie,

My problem is that, I have completed my whole education in my mother-tongue. So my English is not so good. I am trying to learn it, but i failed every time.
Can I use EFT tapping for this problem? And also can I increase my self confidence & will power?

Reply

Natalie December 9, 2011 at 9:34 am

Samir, thanks for the support. It means a lot to me.

EFT can definitely be used for just about anything. As Gary Craig, the EFT founder said, “Try it on everything.”

I recommend the Growing Up Method and my product, “Make EFT Work Every Time,” as the structure you use for your tapping – no matter the topic.

And, as with all problems you are facing today, you want to look back to the early roots of it. As children, we are scolded, punished and sometimes ridiculed or abused. This translates to low motivation (will power) and diminished self confidence as adults, because we want to protect ourselves from being hurt again.

To use EFT to build self confidence and will power, you want to tap on those early painful incidents.

My Belief Change process is also very helpful for increasing confidence and will power. Learn more about my Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Life teleclass.

And – I think your English is great!

Hi mam,
I am Vikas.I am 24 yeared boy and I am facing relationships issue.Means my relationship with people, do not last long.Always I am trying to maintain the relations,but my friend or relative or whoever a person in contact with me, breaks the relationship due to misunderstanding or their views about me. I have 15 to 20 experiences of relationship breakups. Now I ahve only 2 friends. Do you have anyloution on this?
More addition to this, I am fearful about marriage due this issue.So can we use the EFT to attract or we can say to get ideal life partner or solumate? waiting for your reply.

Reply

Natalie October 26, 2011 at 8:12 am

Vikas, these are great questions. AND, they deserve a thorough answer. I’m adding your question to my list of video answers to create.

And, in the meantime, here’s what I suggest you do.

1. Make a list of all your feelings and thoughts around your relationship problems.
Example:
Sad
Scared
Worried
Hopeless
I believe all my relationships will end.
People always leave me.
I can’t keep good relationships.
Something’s wrong with me.
I’ll never get married.
Etc.

Really allow yourself to express your worst fears. Don’t hide anything.

This will reduce your current negative emotions and vibration. The vibration of the combination of negative emotions and your focus and expectation of relationships never lasting continues to attract more of the same.

2. Look back over your life, and make a list of all the events that proved to you that you can’t get along or your relationships will end. The youngest events are the most significant.
Using the Tell the Story technique, tap on those events (especially the earliest ones) to release the charge and remove the negative beliefs.

This will re-form the elements in your unconscious, conscious and body that hold this pattern in place.

3. Use the SWAP method to change the limiting beliefs into positive ones. Start the SWAP belief change process here. http://efttappingtechniques.com/beliefs/how-to-discover-your-negative-core-beliefs-2/

Hi.
I have a problem. Mine is often used e-FTP on this issue, but has no effect yet.So the problem is, whenever I think straight or positive then ever I get completely opposite or negative result of that thinking.Then I do the opposite or negative thoughts. Then get positive results.I dont know how?But it dramatically works for me.And the continuation is receding in every part of my life like Relationship,Job carrear education etc.For example,In past .If I need to get a job,that time my thinking was that job will not have to consider.Then and Then I got a job.Otherwise I had lost 4 to 5 job oppurtunities by doing the positive thinking before them.Did I think about something good about it is bad. How to cure this with EFT.Because I dont know the root cause of it.It htis transformed in me from my father.because they also suffring this from thir childhood.reply

Reply

Natalie July 27, 2011 at 3:06 pm

Vaibhav, if I understand you correctly you are saying that when you think positively, bad things happen. And when you think negatively, good things happen.

If that’s the case, I suspect that your outward positive thinking is triggering a much stronger unconscious (or barely conscious) backlash of scared, negative thinking.

For now, just do Refusal Tapping – in other words. Tap on not wanting good things to happen. “Even though I don’t want a good job, I would rather be poor, I like feeling bad” etc.

But to really change, you need to get to the root and transform the damaning residue of those events that caused your need to sabotage all the good that could happen. I’d suggest you find a good EFT or Matrix Reimprinting professional and clear those roots.

Reply

Ron October 11, 2011 at 9:55 pm

@Vaibhav

There are at least 2 possible explanations for what you’re experiencing (possibly more). First, if your thoughts are focused on getting a new job and you lose a job instead…you could be influencing your behavior in such a way that causes you to lose the job. In other words, if you tell yourself that you want a new job, by default you don’t want the one you have. So, that is going to affect the behavior, the level of performance, etc.

Another possibility is that you don’t believe in the things you want. As Natalie said, you could have some unconscious beliefs that are triggered. In this case, when you trigger these negative beliefs, you generate fear and other negative emotions (particularly self-doubt and belief that you do not deserve the new job).

When you stop thinking about the new job, you actually let go of the false beliefs temporarily. When that happens, there is less stress and therefore it could be easier to get a job.

I can’t tell you specifically how to solve the problem with EFT, but if you follow the links here on Natalie’s site, I think you’ll find some ideas. In particular check out the NLT link and Tapping Techniques. Hope this helps.

Mit, I suggest you find an EFT professional to work with – over the phone or skype will be just as good as in person. I suggest you google stammering + EFT or trauma + EFT. You’ll need to clear the abuse traumas. The hope of EFT is that it will change your whole life for the better – including the stammering.

Reply

Natalie July 5, 2011 at 11:00 am

Pradeep, I feel for you.

If you could work with an expert in transformation, that would be ideal. With a practitioner, you can get to the root of your difficulties and begin the transformational process. My first suggestion is that you focus on that happening.

And EFT you do yourself can definitely help you. And it will take effort and persistence on your part.

I suggest you begin with tapping daily on your list of troubles. You can simply take the comment you wrote to me and use each sentence as a tapping phrase, one at each point. So every day, tap on all that’s bothering you.

When you feel a little better, lighter, more calm, begin tapping another set of phrases that begin with the words “What if…”

So you’d tap sentences like:

What if I I could do well in my job?
What if I could feel a little peace?
What if I could feel a little joy?
What if money could begin to flow a little more easily into my life?
What if I could allow my life to become just a little more positive?
etc.

By tapping this way, you are beginning to penetrate your negative Story and inserting the possibility of a new story.

Doing this will be a good start.

Natalie July 3, 2011 at 7:40 am

NIks, I had something very similar about five years ago. While EFT is not a medical treatment, it can be very effective at relieving the stress and underlying anxiety in our lives. My suggestion is that you focus on doing EFT on what you’re stressed about today – and follow that back to those related early life events.

Gary Craig created a process he called the Personal Peace Procedure, in which you list and tap until clear, all the upsetting events in your life. That is what I did, and my back-to-back infections and chronic allergies simply quit happening.

MAY BE I WAS ONESIDER LOVER OR MAY NOT BE. BUT LAST I DECIDED TO SPEAK WITH HER AND THEN AT THE SAME TIME SHE SHIFTED IN OTHER CITY.MEANS THINGS NOT CLEARED WHTEHR SHE LOVED ME OR NOT. BUT HERE I CANT IMAGINE MY LIFE WITHOUT HER. HER MEORIES ARE NOT DISTURBING ME.SO WHAT CAN I DO WITH EFT? OK ITS CLEAR THAT NOW SHE CAN’T BECOME MY VALENTINE THEN HOW ATTRACT PERFECT VALENTINE WITH EFT?
SECOND QUESTION IS,CAN WE TAKE MULTIPLE ISSUE IN A ONE DAY WHILE WE TAPPING? SUPPOSE I HAVE FEAR, ANGER AND GUILT.CAN I TKE THIS IN A ONE EFT SESSION?

Reply

Natalie June 30, 2011 at 11:12 am

Gems, best to take one issue at a time. Tap on it until you feel resolution – you feel good.

You can tap on more than one issue per day, and it can be very exhausting on the body. Be sure to have a very relaxed day planned if you intend to do a lot of tapping. Rest and drink LOTS of water to help whatever’s released move quickly out of your body.

Here’s my best advice on the valentine issue.

Resolution on anything becomes easier – and insight comes more readily – when you’ve tapped to clear the disturbing emotions around it.

Tap on all your upsets, then sit quietly and ask for insight. Pay attention in the following hours and days for insight.

Hope this helps!

Hello Natalie,
Actually I am a teacher and don’t have any specific question for you.But I am just continuing the Kunal’s third one in the last comment. I am asking the common problem of worldwide students.I found in many sites on EFT,nobody pointed out the students level problems.All we only discussing,asking on the problems faced by adults.But what about studets?How they handled their problem like stress,fear,fustrations,failure which may in either love or exams,their baody changes etc and many unknwon?Thus while surfing, last week I found your site and I felt you can definately help the students.Thus can you please tell me how can EFT help the students in their educational life any many more thing which are the common to student.
My question is not specific.It is a general but i want your help. waiting for your reply,

Reply

Natalie June 26, 2011 at 8:54 am

Manas, tapping could make a HUGE difference for students – in their academic achievements, their social lives, their family lives and in their health. And for their teachers too!

I was a teacher before I started what I’m doing now – so I could say A LOT about this subject. Maybe someday I’ll write some scripts for teachers to use. Hey, good idea!

But, here’s what I suggest in the meantime. Teach the kids how to tap, so they have this tool for resolving their upsets.

Tap with the whole class – leading them in the script – at every major transition of the school day and school year. Start of the day, when returning from lunch, end of the day, before and after holidays, etc. Tap on the things that they might be holding onto that could be upsetting them – family problems, lack of sleep, anxiety in the body, troubling relationships with friends, fears of not being likable, good enough, fitting in – typical concerns we all have.

Tap with students before tests. Tap with students at the start of big challenges that they’ll have fears and doubts about – like learning the multiplication tables or how to write a report or memorizing the elements – whatever.

Tap with the class whenever something upsetting happens that affects the whole class.

Teaching students the process of tapping and using it together could make a major difference in the children’s lives and in how well they enjoy and achieve in school.

Hi Natalie madam,
Thank you for great and helpful work in EFT.You are the real ANGEL in EFT field.
I have some questions.First question is regarding with Chakra cleanings.I found some videos on chakra cleaning. How much time need to give for chakra cleanings? 1 week or 1 month or more?Can I directly tap all seven chakras in one day? or Is there need to take one specific chakra for few days?If yes then How many days for one specific chakra?

Second question is regarding with behaviour of myself.Means after succesfully resloving the emotional block I am getting angried.If the emotional block is old then percentage of anger raised. sometimes I became very nervous,very tired.I dont know how but it is usualy hapened after resolving the blocks.

Third question is concerned with education. Upto 12 th standard I was very good in studies as I continously passed out with very good marks.After that I dont know what happened,but then my educational graph continously decraesed. I was failed two times in last two years.The procedure of studying is same which was in 12 th.My recalling power is also good as I feel it.But I dont know How it is hapened?Right now I dont have the feeling to passed out all of my subject without any break.I am continously feel,I cant passed out clearly.This was not happend upto 12 th class.so How canI improve my educational performance.

Can you help me in these problem?waiting for your reply

Natalie June 25, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Hi Kunal, lots of good questions! And thanks fot the complement!

First, about chakra clearing with EFT. Sorry, but that’s not a field I’ve studied, or know anything about. I suggest you ask the folks who made the videos you watched.

Second – anger, nervousness and tiredness coming up after you “successfully resolved emotional blocks.” Tiredness is normal after doing deep emotional work. Sometimes you can need a lot of rest for a day or two after clearing something big.

But feeling anger or nervousness can mean a couple of things. It may mean that you have not actually have fully cleared the issue. The emotion you feel coming up is simply the next layer or aspect.

Most painful memories or traumas have multiple levels. We may feel fear. When we clear the fear, we may find anger arising. We clear the anger and we may feel hurt arise. Until we feel peace, the issue is not fully resolved.

Another possibility is that your unconscious does not feel safe letting go of the issue or your emotions around it. Feeling anger or nervousness when something is release could be a sign of that.

The remedy? More tapping! Tap on being afraid of letting it go or of being angry at letting it go. Use the Growing Up Method to go from negative to positive.

And your third question – this would take more investigative questioning on my part to suggest a resolution. There are so many possibilities. You can tap on fear of failing, fear of losing your memory, things like that.

But it’s always helpful to find the root cause of anything.

Thanks for your questions – and hope my answers provide some help and direction.

Thank you so much for your help in getting me set up on tapping for social anxiety.  Just the one short tapping session you did with me really got me “unstuck” on just where to begin.  That session started me on a tapping journey through the Growing Up Method.  In just these past few weeks I have been able to take HUGE steps forward towards conquering my social anxiety, where a few weeks ago, I didn’t even know where to begin.  

Thank you again for the Free Coaching Call, as well as all of the great information on EFT that you provide!

Reply

Natalie May 27, 2011 at 10:16 am

Joy, I know that if you use it, tapping can help you. It’s a do-it-yourself technique that hundreds of thousands of people have found to be very effective.

But – like anything – it only works if you use it.

How it works …that’s a much longer answer. And I’m not sure anyone truly knows how. Might work because the storage of our thoughts and emotions is related to the body’s energy meridian system, and when that system is stimulated, it releases the thoughts and emotions.

It might work because of the stress relief from tapping the meridian points.

It might work because we go into a trance state while tapping.

It might work because we are facing and accepting our thoughts and feelings instead of pushing them away or hiding from them. We release the resistance.

And it might be partly because of the power of belief (but it also works without belief, so that’s probably not it).

Or it could be a combination or something else entirely.

Just a question – do you know how your cell phone works? Do you need to know in order to use it?

Hi Natalie,
I have a 3 year old special needs child who has a lot of sensory and coordination problems. He has been making progress but very slowly. Do you think I could use EFT Tapping on him to help with connecting him to his body? I understand that this may not work because there isn’t anyway to get him to concentrate on the problems…but could the tapping in general wake up anything in his brain?

Reply

Natalie February 24, 2011 at 2:13 pm

Cyndi, if you tap on him while he’s upset about something, that’s equivalent to concentrating on the problem. And what I’d suggest is doing surrogate tapping for him. You can tap on yourself, voicing the issues you imagine he’d be voicing. If you do this while sitting next to him, body to body, it may enhance the positive effect. I’d love to hear from you about how this goes if you do it.

How often should you do tapping? Can it be used as preventitive approach to situations etc. Is it different for mind vs body vs spiritual issues? Thanks.

Reply

Natalie February 13, 2011 at 4:12 pm

CC, great questions!
First, no shoulds in tapping. Use it as often as you like. I suggest you use it often when first learning, so you get into the habit of thinking, “Hmmm. I’m feeling an uncomfortable emotion. I can tap on that!”

When I first began using EFT, my emotional life was such a turbulent sea that I could have been tapping nonstop. With lots of tapping, I now live in a much more calm state, with occasional peaks I tap on.

Brings me to your next question. You surely can use it as a preventative approach to situations. Stage fright is a good example, tapping to prepare you to do well.

The process of tapping is really the same, whether you use it for mind or body or spiritual issues – and EFT works great for all three. My favorite method is to begin by tapping while stating all the crummy emotions, fears and doubts. I call this Dumping.

Then, when you feel somewhat better, you begin tapping and imagining how you’d like to feel instead. I call this stage Dreaming.

Finally, when you’re feeling pretty darn good, you tap while making decision statements, which I call Deciding.

Barbara – two thoughts. First, usually we don’t get the most out of things when we only “sort of” do them…

And, It can take some time and some diligence and some creativity to unlock the limiting patterns that we’ve been living for most of our lives.

So, if you’re sincere about wanting to thrive, I suggest you dive into tapping whole-heartedly. Be persistent and committed to thriving. Then you’ll surely begin to notice positive changes.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Natalie using EFT, NLT and Matrix Reprinting both through a group teleclass and a private session.
An inspirational and generous (both with her time and knowledge on EFT) teacher.
Looking forward to continued working with you.

Miguel, alas, my espanol is not good enough for written communication. Sorry!

People with fibromyalgia can respond very well to EFT and NLT.

Hi Natalie,
I can hardly believe you are so willing to offer so much to others, thank you ; )
I am desperately seeking solutions, first to my smoking addictions (my health is terrible) but of course necessarily, to the underlying issues of PTSD brought about by a narcissistic mother and alcoholic raging father. I’ve tried EFT before (and a million other things) but this time I think I get it =P
Can you recommend a way for me that starts with the addictions (hopefully dealing with them NOW) then works deeper into the underlying issues?
I look forward to your advice.
mm

Hi MM,

You’re welcome for the help!

I would say that the solution to both the addictions and the PTSD is the same one. The addictions of today are caused by the trauma of yesterday. So, the best way to heal your addictions and everything else is, as you say, “going deeper.”

The early traumas you mention are very challenging (some would say nearly impossible) to clear on your own. It’s like trying do surgery on yourself – too close, too personal, too painful.

You can do EFT on the smaller traumas and painful memories and that will help a lot. Use the Tell the Story technique in my free video series.

I would be delighted to work with you and have a special on until Feb 1, 2011. Check it out here.

My best to you. Natalie

Hi. I’ve been diagnosed with Lichen Simplex Chronicus , do you think this method would help me break the cycle of this disorder?

Natalie December 30, 2010 at 6:31 am

Amy, I an unfamiliar with Lichen Simplex Chronicus – however here’s what I do know. The body and mind are intimately connected. It’s been said that the body IS the unconscious mind.

EFT, and especially the new NLT, or Neuro Linguistic Tapping I’m now doing (artful combination of Neuro Linguistic Programming + EFT) are awesome at bridging the mind body gap and healing the source of our problems on every level – emotional, mental, spiritual, physical.

Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, said “try it on everything.” It’s amazing how physical issues can improve and even completely heal when we clear and heal our mental and emotional dis-ease.

Natalie,
I’m on the border of becoming a sufferer of agorophobia. I have no insurance, and my anxiety is on the brink of costing me my marriage. Would tapping work for someone as bad as me?

Reply

Natalie December 23, 2010 at 7:34 pm

Kristen, absolutely tapping can help. It’s an amazing process that you can even learn to use yourself to eliminate the underlying causes of anxiety. Working with an experienced practitioner can help immensely – and many people make significant progress doing EFT on them self – I know I have.

Hi Natalie,

I believe my body is stuck in regards to losing weight. On top of Adrenal fatigue due to many traumas, I seem to be holding this fat for protection (I am using the “gabriel method” to help but thought the correct wording for tapping would be useful. I am having difficulty getting the correct wording. Do you have suggestions? I am having difficulties with my late husbands family not appreciatiing my help or my childrens? I think it is all inter related? thanks very much.

Reply

Natalie December 9, 2010 at 9:44 am

Diane, EFT is a very flexible and forgiving form of mind body work. If you are truly tuned into the problem, the wording isn’t critical.

You can even turn the words of your comment into a tapping sequence:

Set Up
Even though I believe my body is stuck in regards to losing weight, I love and accept myself anyway.
Even though I have adrenal fatigue due to many traumas, I accept myself and my body.
Even though I’m concerned about the wording and fear EFT won’t work unless I get it just right, I accept myself and all my feelings.

Tapping
My body is stuck.
I can’t lose weight.
I have adrenal fatigue preventing me from losing weight.
That was caused by many traumas.
I’m holding the fat for protection.
And I don’t know the right words to say.
Gotta get it right or EFT won’t work.
All these worries.
All these fears.
I think it’s all inter-related.

In addition to this type of tapping, I’d suggest you use the Tell the Story EFT method to clear your past traumas (and if they involve violence or abuse I suggest you work with a professional). If you’ve signed up for the free Video Course, you’ll learn it there.

Hope this helps.

Pradeep, There are many ways of passing things to each other. Certainly DNA is one way. But we also share energy fields.

Families and cultures pass beliefs and ways of being energetically as well as through heredity.

The work of Matrix Reimprinting often seeks to transform energetic patterns of generations.

Your greatest power is in doing your own personal healing. Heal your own beliefs in failure, etc and you may be pleasantly surprised at the healing that happens in your son.
