period of time. Ryan Harrison gives us a detailed and fascinating account of this process with a client addicted to a soft drink. Seasoned EFT'ers will instantly see its potential for very wide use with most issues. By Ryan N. Harrison, MA, HHP, NC, EFT-ADV Hi Gary -I wanted to share with you something I have been experimenting with in my own practice. I've seen more success than not with this technique, and I think in large part that is due to simply how much ground is covered when I use it. It might sound kind of silly or inappropriate, but I call it "Turbo Tapping" -- and I've used it on many different kinds of issues (e.g. cold symptoms, anger toward a parent, fear of working on issues, addictions, etc.). Intuition plays a large part in the success of this technique -- at least for me -- but I'm sure that even without the "finesse" that comes with intuition people would find themselves leveling forests-full of metaphoric negative trees. Anyway, to the "technique": 1. I always state that "we're going to get serious with this now," or something along those lines, because I find it really sharpens my clients' attention. Many of them sit straighter in their chairs and really focus in on me and what I'm telling them. The improved posture and the sharpened intent really create a positive shift, helping to allow energy to flow easier and more readily. 2. I ask the client to tell me everything they can about the issue at hand. And then, as they speak, I write like crazy so I catch as many phrases and nuances as I can in my notes. If they get stuck, I offer suggestions to help them come up with more aspects, etc. Background and example: A woman with whom I was working had an incredible addiction to the soft drink Coke. It was all she drank, literally -- 5 or 6 bottles a day. As a Nutritional Consultant, I had advised her that many of her uncomfortable physical symptoms were likely related to this addiction, and she agreed that she'd like to kick it, but obviously couldn't without some help. I told her that I knew it was possible, and that I was certain we could get her to actually DISLIKE Coke by the end of a session. Naturally, she was incredulous. I asked her to produce the unopened bottle of Coke that I suggested she bring to the session. I took it from her, unscrewed the top and asked her to simply smell it. Though I've dealt with addictions before, I was surprised at her reaction. Her hands shot out toward the bottle and she started breathing quickly. She really wanted that soda! At that point, I took a SUDs level (on a scale of 0 - 10 she exclaimed she was certainly a 10, and that she "HAD to have it"). Then I had her take the smallest little sip and took another SUDs level ("20!" she said, and was still visibly shaking). I capped the bottle, put it out of sight, and then with my pen and paper at the ready, I asked her to tell me:
and bring our intention into focus together. other times I'll combine aspects in a single sequence.."When I'm watching TV or a movie" -.g."I always drink it in my living room. "My mother always had Coke at home."It's sweet" -. this serves to really tune them into what we're doing."

"Even though I am totally addicted to Coke. WHERE she liked it -."In a glass with crushed ice" -. Beginning with the first aspect on my list. So it's important that you follow me. After one full round (including the 9 Gamut).. WHEN she liked it -."When I'm at work" -. HOW she liked it -. global statement. not necessarily going in the order in which I ." etc."I get it at X Mexican Restaurant with my lunch" -."When I have lunch or dinner." and "I drink Coke when I'm lonely or depressed"). And this is precisely where my intuition really kicks in. In addition to all these things."I buy it at the drive through on the way to work every morning" -."I drink it in my office" -.
