The tapping technique explained in this Part 5 of the EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Manual is how to do emotional tapping and what EFT affirmations to say at each tapping point.
Now you’ve learned about the basics of EFT tapping, some reasons why EFT works, the important foundations of how, where and when to tap. Then, you’ll really have this powerful tapping technique at your own fingertips.
In this part 5 of the manual, we’ll put it all together so you’re ready to start tapping.
EFT Tapping Rounds – Overwhelm
After you do the Tapping Set-up, the tapping technique in Part 4…
…you do one or more “rounds” of EFT tapping on the meridian points.
One round starts at the Eyebrow point and ends at the Top of the Head.
At each point, you say a statement, called the EFT reminder phrase or EFT affirmation.
In your early phases of doing EFT, you may want to say the same thing at each point. That is just fine.
If you are upset because you are feeling overwhelmed your set-up may be…
“Even thought I feel overwhelmed, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”
Then, at each tapping point, you would repeat…
“This feeling of overwhelm.”
The most important thing…
… to do with tapping is not what you say, but what you think and feel.
If while tapping, you are really tuned into your feeling of overwhelm and all the causes for being overwhelmed, then the EFT will work.
Ideally, you are picturing your causes of overwhelm and feeling the related emotions.
If, on the other hand, you say, “This feeling of overwhelm,” at each point. But you are mentally making your shopping list –
EFT will be much less effective, and may not work at all.
Do you see what I’m getting at?
It’s not so much what you say …
…as what you’re thinking and feeling.
Because tapping the meridian points will work to move the energy that’s related to what you’re tuned into, not just what you’re saying.
Re-Cap of the EFT Steps
- Tune in to your issue.
- Assess your level of intensity, 1-10.
- Set-Up (tap the karate chop while saying the set-up affirmation 3 times).
- Tap several rounds on the points.
- Pause now and then for a deep breath and to re-assess.
- If memories or new emotions come up, tap on them.
- Keep repeating until you feel good.
