Tapping is good for just about anything you can think of.  Emotional freedom tapping, or EFT, is especially great for emotional issues.  And, as you’ll see below, the list of possible meridian tapping topics is long (and growing).

How to Get Started…

Here’s what I suggest you do:

  1. Get the EFT Manual.  That will give you simple and thorough instruction you can refer to again and again, and even print out if you like.
  2. Learn the tapping points.  You can learn them in 1 minute, then you’ll feel more confident to start tapping. (Want to go deeper?  Learn about the chi meridians you’re tapping.
  3. Try out the simplest tapping technique of all: Just Tap
  4. Make a list of 10 upsetting memories from your childhood.  Watch how I clear the memory of wrecking my brother’s red Camero when I was 15.  Pick an easy one from your list.  Tap to clear your childhood memory.  This is the start of personal freedom.  Hooray!
  5. Get inspired about the life-changing potential of EFT.  Watch this awesome tapping movie and witness the changes in the lives of 10 people.
  6. Learn how to make EFT work every time - and get the tools to make your life better and better every day.
  7. Keep tapping!

I’m so glad you’re here.  So glad you’re open to positive change.  The world needs your unique gifts.

p.s. Small changes, every day, add up to huge differences in your life.  You are worth it.  Keep tapping!

Hi Natalie,
I was just really hoping you could help me! I was wondering how to use EFT to relieve repetitive thoughts. What should I say when using it? I keep asking myself the same questions in my head that are rediculous and I know are unrealistic however I do not know how to stop thinking about them! Its driving me crazy! I could really use your help! Thank you!


Natalie June 24, 2011 at 9:30 am

Kelly, EFT is great for those repetitive thoughts that keep us feeling a little nuts.

Use the thought you hear repeating as your tapping phrase. Do that for at least one round.

Then tap what you would like to do or say regarding this issue. Let those petty, vindictive or childish thoughts come out as you tap. Don’t sensor or hold back. That tapping should be somewhat calming.

Then ask yourself some questions to get to the root, because it’s almost certain that the root of these repetitive thoughts are in your past, most likely your childhood. Here are some questions that come to mind.

When have I felt like this before?
What does this remind me of?
What happened to me as a kid that’s something like this?

When a memory pops up, tap on that memory – even if it seems unrelated. The memory emerged for a reason. Trust that.

You can use the tell the story technique to clear the emotions from that memory. In case you don’t know that technique, here’s a video demonstrating it. Tell the Story EFT Technique .

You can go further with this, but it would be better to work with me in person to do the deeper work.

Love to hear how this works for you.

Antoinette, good question.

What’s most important is that you are fully tuned in to the issue – especially the thoughts and emotions around it. If you’re tuned in – it won’t matter whether you are saying your tapping statements aloud or silently.

Carol Look gives a great example. She says you can’t edit a document on your computer if you haven’t opened it.


Antoinette March 11, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Hi I’m new to tapping and I wanted to know if you have to repeat your statements out load or if will still work if you repeat your statements in your mind while tapping?


Sue December 1, 2010 at 11:27 am

I have recently hearda presentation of EFT from Carol Look. I am anxious to get started with tapping but I have a question. If it advisable to tap for more than one thing at a time? Or, is it better to tap for a particular issue for several days and then move on? I’m a newbie at this. Thanks. Sue


Natalie December 1, 2010 at 11:55 am

Sue, you can do it either way. Tapping for one thing for several days will surely lead to breakthroughs in that area. Tapping for a variety of things over several days will also be beneficial in all those areas.

What’s most important? That you are actually becoming more and more aware of your blocks, areas of resistance and unpleasant emotions. Tap on what you notice.

At first, when new to tapping, it can seem like you have way too many issues to clear them all at once. Just take it slowly, feeling heartened and confident that each tapping session is healing you, clearing your blocks to brilliance. It is such an awesome tool and you’ll notice positive change immediately.

Love your website. I love “self help” and wonder how it is that I’m just discovering tapping? I guess everything presents itself when it’s supposed to present! I’m so excited!


Natalie September 26, 2010 at 4:03 pm

Stephanie, so glad you did discover tapping! I’m curious how you discovered it.

I too love “self help” and EFT is the most effective, easiest, do-it-yourself method I’ve ever come across (and I’ve tried many).


Stephanie Sommer September 28, 2010 at 8:59 pm

Let’s see….can I remember how I made the discovery? I listen to Lisa Garr’s “The Aware Show” online, and I listened to a replay of a gentleman that talked about and demonstrated tapping. Then I went to YouTube & Google and the rest is history! I am just surprised @ the amount of info out there and that I hadn’t run across it previously. I love your website because it’s so user-friendly! Thanks for sharing yourself with me & the cyber universe:-)!


Natalie September 28, 2010 at 11:40 pm

Stephanie, thank you so much for appreciating how my website is user-friendly. Doing the programming and website stuff is pretty challenging for me. I’m getting ready to upgrade the look, feel and functionality of the site – to make it even more user-friendly. Have hired someone to help me, of course.

But in the mean-time, your appreciation helps me feel better about how it is now. :)

Stephanie Sommer September 28, 2010 at 9:02 pm

Correction! It wasn’t a gentleman on The Aware Show, it was Carol Look!!!! My memory is fuzzy — gotta tap on that:-)!


Natalie September 28, 2010 at 11:37 pm

Carol – what a great intro to EFT. She makes it look so easy. Carol’s one of my favorite mentors. Take a class from her if you ever get the chance. She usually teaches to huge audiences, but I got her with a group of around 30 once. Great experience.
