their importance. EFT expert Ingrid Dinter shares her views on the subject. and how EFT can be used to create choices for people who may falsely believe that they are indeed a victim. After that we’ll be getting into the Basic Recipe itself. Also how EFT has grown and evolved out of those ancient theories. talking about how he believes EFT really works. You will find this story in many publications and books on the subject. Part Two The Evolution of EFT and the One Minute Wonder – Page: 20 EFT Master. we are going to kick off with the founder of EFT. Judy Byrne.CONTENTS Part One Discovering the basic EFT and a Tapping Round – Page: 8 This part covers the basics of EFT. Brad Yates shares the classic and dramatic story of how the tapping process was first discovered when Dr Roger Callahan. and actually see and hear it in action. a much more complicated approach. and also compares the results of an EFT treatment with traditional therapy. Brad also talks about how TFT grew into EFT and how the founder of EFT. Gary Craig. and use his intuitive rambling. 5 . That can only really be achieved after gaining more experience in working with EFT. But if you haven’t. You will be able to tap along with Marla and do the process. from TFT. their relevance and the many cultures that have used them for healing. Gary Craig. and also using it with constricted breathing. EFT Master Tania Prince talks about testing your results and continues the subject of one minute wonders further. Dr Carol Look has information on the EFT Basic Recipe and how important it is to actually stick with it. Gary Craig. and Marla Tabaka will be talking us through how to do that. Also Brad looks briefly at one minute wonders. especially when working in the area of trauma. was working with a client called Mary. adopted the discovery statement from Dr Callahan “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system or field” and will explain more about that. Ingrid also talks about how some people cannot be healed because of beliefs that may be holding them back. as it were. and not move too quickly into trying to short cut the process and maybe try to model the founder of the process. talks about the meridians. and grown from Thought Field Therapy. If you’ve already learned the basics you may want to move on to the next section.
Jaqui Crooks looks at how important it is to have good listening skills. and by working at a high level 6 . Maryam Webster shares reasons with us why the gamut spot should not be dropped from the EFT tapping sequence. and that the client may have the answers. Jade Barbee and Andy Bryce will be walking us through and sharing their knowledge of the set up statements. helping the client to really get into the problem. Part Three B Dealing with Aspects. but really it’s because they haven’t covered all the aspects. and how we can only really short cut the sequence by having the necessary experience. and also to ask the right questions. Tania Prince talks more about being specific and talks about how even headaches can have different qualities to them. and how important that is to our success with EFT. Maggie Adkins talks more about how important it is to be specific. Cathy Vartuli and Rick Wilkes will be looking at persistence. but also it can bring on feelings of failure if clients can’t remember particular memories. Rehana Webster talks about being specific and how some people may actually wander away from a subject and not be specific. aspects and being persistent. persistence and being creative with the Set-up – Page: 43 Dr Carol Look talks more about aspects and how some people believe that EFT doesn’t work. Part Four The Importance of the Gamut Point – Page: 58 We are now going to focus on the 9 Gamut Procedure. and how important it is to be specific. and all we need to do is listen very carefully to what they are saying. Brad Yates talks about digging deeper into memories. and how we need to discover the different aspects in order to get success. Also about how using one aspect may have a generalisation effect.Part Three Get better results by being more specific and dealing with Aspects – Page: 30 In this section we are talking about being specific. and may affect other aspects which may be troubling a client.
Also what happens in the mind and body when we are under stress or suffering some form of trauma. and also create a belief about how safe the world is. whereas tapping the basic recipe is not enough to clear it totally. hear and feel.Page: 80 This page has a list of all the contributors and information about them. and gives us tips on working with others and getting yourself out of the way.over time. and how the early memories can create who we are in the future. Part Five More EFT insights into using the Emotional Freedom Techniques – Page: 68 Alina Frank talks about EFT being a form of focused intention and ritual.com Contributors . remember and take in the information in an easier way. 7 . Tania Prince talks about testing your work to ensure that a client is actually getting beyond their issue. and using all the sensory information to actually work with that. to test results and to look for core issues. If you would like to see how well you remembered. and how EFT disempowers memories to bring us freedom from negative emotions. which may lead to getting rid of the issue permanently. EFT Questions You are welcome to read the questions after each section. Karin Davidson talks about the gamut spot and theories about how using it gets rid of the learned part of an issue. including contact details. just email us for the sheet with all the answers and good luck. info@thefethub. as this will help you to revise. Judy Byrne will be talking about memories. Maryam also says that doing the 9 Gamut manouevre addresses what we see.
You will be able to tap along with Marla and learn how to do the process and actually hear it and see it in action. as you well know. There are many important points to listen to on all of the audios that we will be presenting to you. a blend of acupuncture and mind/body medicine in a way which has created extraordinary results for lots of people. and you just have to look at yoga and meditation where the general idea is that if one can become more peaceful mentally. and we have found that as we address people’s issues using the acupuncture meridians. so we are tapping the same points as in acupuncture? 8 . we are getting better results. Discovering the basic EFT and a Tapping Round GC EFT is a blend of very well known. and we start off by looking at the basics of EFT.Part One Hello. very well researched therapeutic ideas such as acupuncture. The other thing is mind/body medicine. the founder of the Emotional Freedom Technique. So to begin with here is Gary Craig. than either one of them singly. and also using it with constricted breathing. After that we will be getting into the basic recipe itself and Marla Tabaka will be talking us through how to do that. and what EFT does is build a bridge and blends the two together. but if you haven’t we are going to kick of with Gary Craig. over 50 contributors who have given their time freely to help you discover the art of EFT and its delivery. the founder of the Emotional Freedom Technique and he is talking about how he believes EFT really works. This has been validated in many ways – there have been decades of research about all this. That’s the essence of it. which has been around for many thousands of years and has been validated in many ways – you just have to go onto Google and put in “acupuncture studies” and you will find lots of studies. at least in my experience over the past 16 years. GW Right. Now if you have already learnt the basics you may want to move on the next section. I would like to start off by thanking all of our contributors. the better one’s health is. this is Gary Williams and welcome to the EFT Hub library.
because we were violating their beliefs big time. GW And do you need to believe in EFT for it to work? GC No. GW There has been research into acupuncture hasn’t there? GC Yes. but what I think is happening is that when one has an emotional issue it is because the free flow of the chi (so-called by Chinese acupuncturists . it might be helpful but I don’t think you need to believe in it. all we are doing is borrowing from each and blending them in a way which is really quite extraordinary.being the energy which flows round the system). headaches go away and back pain goes away and so on. GW If you pull EFT apart. And even with that open hostility their headaches went away and they were no longer afraid of traffic or whatever it was that was bothering them! 9 . acupuncture has been VERY well researched. disease symptoms start to go away. and this disruption or short circuit vanishes. and by tapping with the fingertips and stimulating these meridian points. In fact in my experience. and how stupid it was and everything else. every one of them was openly skeptical and in fact some of them were just outright hostile and worked flat out to prove that it didn’t work. especially in the early years. and with it the emotional issue vanishes. we stimulate the same meridians as in acupuncture except that we don’t use needles. as a result of taking care of emotional issues so rapidly we often find that this can take care of physical things as well. has become disrupted and short-circuited .the same as a short circuit in a TV or radio.GC Yes. Also. how do you think that it really works? GC I wish I knew every little nuance about EFT. we send energy down these meridians. we just use our fingertips.
but for someone who comes from the Chinese method of healing. GC I haven’t heard it put quite that way. if they are hostile with you they aren’t going to give you much time. It only looks silly for people who have been conditioned along other lines. so if that’s where one is conditioned this is going to look not only unbelievable but stupid. GW We’ve based our beliefs on the Greek model really where we look at ourselves from the outside of the body whereas the Oriental people look at themselves from the inside rather from the outside. or EFT doesn’t work for this person”. For someone who has been conditioned in this way and someone who has been studying recent findings in quantum physics. this would be easy to understand. GW It is a strange process isn’t it. GW So what can be achieved which can’t be achieved by other therapies? GC Well in my experience you can apply EFT to every known emotional issue that you can name. 10 . but yes we are going from the inside to the outside. but I don’t think you actually have to believe in it for it to work. because the medical route doesn’t do anything like this. I don’t know much about the Greeks. when you see it being done? GC Well. You can apply it to everything . it’s strange to those who haven’t seen it before.So even with this open hostility we were able to help them. Belief becomes helpful because if people believe in it they are co-operative with you. if that makes sense. this is easy to understand. every known performance issue that you can name.does that mean that we get 100% results for everything and for everyone? No – sometimes we seem to hit a wall and newcomers to this would say “EFT doesn’t work for that issue. and it would be strange to someone whose own knowledge of healing would be the medical route for example. every known physical issue that you can name.
We have on many occasions in one. I’ve oftentimes run into walls so to speak and I’ve just kept being persistent and kept backing up. I think that EFT is appropriately applicable to every known emotional. that isn’t true. the fast food society – they want instant results. that’s when the skill of the experienced practitioner is invaluable because they can open doors that each individual client is simply to close to to open.and ten year olds get results really nicely. When we stub our toe we’re not getting to find the real issue yet. GW So there’s an art to actually being good at EFT then? GC Yes. We have ten year olds who use what we call our basic recipe – that is the mechanics of tapping and what you say . But if you get into more sophisticated areas. but I would expand on that some. that happens a lot. a lot of people are conditioned to wanting to find instant results. and sometimes it takes a lot of detective work to bring them up. some things are one minute wonders. and all of a sudden we’re finding issues and we are getting healing where we seemed to have stopped. and all of sudden “Aha” and now we’re going through a door we’ve never gone through before. despite the fact that they have gone through all the conventional therapy that you can imagine. taken care of emotional issues that have been plaguing people for decades. So yes. We do get that with EFT.But I don’t think that this is accurate. Generally speaking it’s not that EFT doesn’t work. it’s that we haven’t found the real issue yet. they take things like that. we get our one minute wonders – headaches will go away and other pains will go away. GW So is there a danger in presenting it as a one minute wonder? GC I don’t think that danger is the right word. GW So where would be a good place to start on the journey to learn how to become good at doing EFT? 11 . but other things take patience. a very brief period of time. or two or three minutes. they take persistence. While danger not being the right word. they take skill. We’re not finding what’s really going on and sometimes these emotional issues are hidden even from the client. this perception that everything is a one minute wonder. they take detective work. physical or performance issue that you can name.
Now here’s Marla Tabaka with the Basic Recipe Today we are going to explore the EFT Basic Recipe. is there an area that you shouldn’t go into? GC Well yes. the set up. and some people prefer that. you wouldn’t want to go where you don’t belong. GW If you are just starting out in EFT. and other ideas about how it works.GC Well first of all download our manual for free from our EFT website. the nine gamut procedure and the sequence again. if you were brand new at this. The Basic Recipe has 4 components. I don’t care how severe. Now there are many practitioners who feel that both points are equally as effective. the sequence. There are 2 different points that can be used for your set up phrase. There are people who do workshops which condense what we’re doing. it’s a common sense area. so after two or three days of workshops people can have a pretty good idea of what’s going on and can start using it. We are going to begin with what we call the “sore spot”. go to a psychiatric ward and start telling people you are going to take care of psychosis and schizophrenia and things like that. You wouldn’t for example. But with experience this technique can be applied to all of those things. Let’s talk about the set up. and after that she will be using it with constricted breathing. Now we are going to use the actual process itself and Marla Tabaka is going to talk us through a tapping sequence of EFT. 12 . what’s called the basic recipe. You wouldn’t go into hospitals and tell people you could instantly cure cancer and things like that. GW My thanks there to Gary Craig talking about how he believes EFT really works. There are also a lot of people doing workshops that can expand on what we are doing. That gives you all the basics and you can start using it from there. During the course of the audios you are about to listen to you’ll hear other opinions and other ways of using EFT. We’ll take a look at both points and decide which one feels the most comfortable and the most effective for you.
Now. now move to just outside of the bone on the side of your eye at the end of your eyebrow. 7. 7 or 8 taps. You should now be in the upper left or right portion of your chest. and it’s a good idea to use more than one spot. This is one of my favorites – I like to just gently tap this point actually with all 4 fingers. i. 8 times. Line your tapping up with your pupil. It feels tender and that’s why we call it the sore spot. So hear we go onto the tapping sequence. to use this spot you would take 2 fingers of the opposite hand and apply steady tapping whilst saying your set up phrase. You don’t need to count the exact amount of times you tap the spot but make sure you get in at least 6 to 8 times on each point. Tap with a nice steady pace. Now don’t rub too hard. 2 pieces on the outside and something in the middle. the alternate spot for your set up is what we call the karate chop point. below the mouth right above your chin in that little dip. right under the bone. Let’s move on and tap under the eye. that’s the outer eyebrow point. If you press vigorously in that area within about a 2 inch radius or so you will probably feel the sore spot. When you find that notch go ahead and measure over about 3 inches and down towards your navel about 2 or 3 inches. The next point is the inner eyebrow point. Once you find somewhere tender to the touch go ahead and rub it in a circular motion as you state your set up phrase. Give that spot 6. not too hard.e. You are actually tapping through your face if you will and on your gums if you will. Let’s begin with the tapping point at the crown of the head or the Crown Point. It’s over the bridge of your nose. It’s the spot below your pinkie finger on the side of your hand. Now we are going to move on to the chin point. 13 . You may find even more than one spot. and longer if you like. Now when we do this Gary Craig refers to it as the “ham sandwich” because of the way it’s structured. just enough to feel the tenderness. if that gives you direction. under the eye. Now. It’s right on the top of the head right around where a baby’s soft spot would be. now we are going to move on to the tapping points and we are going to include the 9 gamut procedure. if you need to do more than one set up in a session. so that I don’t miss the exact spot. but over where your eyebrow begins. Just tap 6. This point is located on the fleshy side of your hand .the area that you would use if you were to go ahead and karate chop your way through a piece of wood.it’s above the mouth under the nose. Either left or right it doesn’t matter.Now go ahead and find the U shaped notch at the base of your throat. OK. you can see that we’re just following our way round the eye socket. Now we are going to move on to under the nose . we’re not actually right on the chin.
Now move your fingers down about an inch and across to the outer part of your body. tap about 4 inches down under the arm pit. You can even use the flat of your hand if you like. Now again these points aren’t always used in a session. So let’s take a look at them. Again this is one of those points where I like to use 3 or 4 fingers. Now moving on to the finger points.Now we are going to move on to the collar bone point. Now let’s move on to under the arm. just go ahead and use these finger points. Now tap on the same location on the lower inside corner of the finger points on the index and middle finger. about an inch or maybe two until you feel the beginning of your collarbone. This point is located about 2 inches below the nipple on the ribs. either left or right it doesn’t matter. Begin by tapping alongside the nail of the thumb. It’s a great method if you are in public and need to tap but don’t want to be too obvious. Now there is one more point that I’d like to cover and that’s the liver point. and you will find that U shaped indentation at the base of your throat. It’s really easy for some people to find because it’s often quite tender. It’s a good one to cover but you don’t see many practitioners using it as it can be potentially embarrassing to use in public. which is one which is slightly deceiving because it’s not necessarily right on the collarbone. in review here’s the list of our points: The crown or top of the head Inside eyebrow Outside eyebrow Under the Eye Under the nose On the chin 14 . So. And now the little finger and then move on to the karate chop point that we talked about earlier. It’s on the corner where there is like a half moon shape and it’s located right at the nail bed. Skip the next finger as it’s not really necessary to tap on this finger as that meridian is already covered in the other points. Tap on the lower corner of your nail closest to your knuckle and to your body. but they are very useful to know and they are part of the Basic Recipe. So to find that point go ahead and run your fingers down the front of the neck.
Now eyes down hard left whilst holding your head steady. So continuously tap that point and go ahead now and close your eyes for a second or two. 1 2 3 4 5 and hum 2 or 3 seconds of that song again. Well. the points with our reminder phrase. we don’t always use the finger points but they are included in the Basic Recipe. Make sure you perform these actions in the order given whilst continuously tapping on that 9 Gamut point. which is the liver point Now for the sake of this recording we won’t be using the liver point. Those are the Basic Recipe tapping points. we can breathe more deeply. eyes down hard right toward the ground. Now most people like tapping with “Happy Birthday” as their tune but it really doesn’t matter which tune you choose. Now today we are going to focus on breathing. nine times out of ten we can really breathe better. anything that’s associated with a happy occasion for you is fine. Roll your eyes only in a clockwise circle and now roll your eyes in a counter-clockwise circle. So now let’s go through the 9 Gamut Procedure. Now count rapidly from 1 to 5. with greater awareness and really get that breath and that energy moving and that’s so healthy for us to do that. Now. First. open your eyes. to locate the Gamut point on the back of the hand place 2 fingers between the pinkie knuckle and the ring finger knuckle of your opposite hand. Now move down towards your wrist about half an inch and you are right at the Gamut Point. Now to do the 9 Gamut Procedure you tap that Gamut point whilst performing the following 9 actions. Begin with the side of thumb and go ahead and move through the fingers to the karate chop point. 15 . under the breast. it’s optional. now keeping your head steady. Go ahead and tap that point and see how it feels. the set up.The collarbone Under the arm And if you like. Now we are going to incorporate all the pieces of the Basic Recipe. It sounds really simple now doesn’t it because obviously you’re already breathing. Now go ahead and hum 2 lines of a song such as “Happy Birthday” or “You are My Sunshine”. and the 9 Gamut Procedure into a mini tapping session.
Write down your SUD’s number now. “Even though I have this constricted breathing. exhale………………. or whatever you’re working on at the time. If you think you need that visual just close your eyes and imagine some kind of measuring tool in your head to measure your emotion.It’s important to remember to rate the level of whatever you are working on. and how do you rate that? Let’s see. I’ve also heard it referred to as subjective units of distress scale. so in a moment we are going to go ahead and take a nice deep breath and rate from a zero to a ten. For today we’re going to use your karate chop first with the set up statements and we’re going to repeat that statement 3 times. Beginning at your set up point. Now SUD’s stands for subjective units of discomfort scale. Zero would be that you’re not breathing at all. Breathe in now. Today we’re working on your breath. let’s tap. I deeply and completely love and accept myself” “Even though I have this constricted breathing. well we know that that’s not true. I deeply and completely love and accept myself” “Even though I have this constricted breathing. and where are you? Did you inhale all the way down to your solar plexus area? Did you release your stress on your exhale? Was that the deepest breathe most cleansing breath you could imagine? That would be a ten. So typically to do that we use what we call a SUD’s scale from a zero to a ten. I am about at a 6 because of all the talking I have been doing. and ten being the deepest and most satisfying breath you can imagine. Find your karate chop point. your physical sensations. I deeply and completely love and accept myself” Now let’s begin tapping on the crown of the head whilst saying our reminder phrase: “This constricted breathing” Now move down to the inside eyebrow point And the outside eyebrow point Under the eye “this constricted breathing” “this constricted breathing” “this constricted breathing” Under the nose “this constricted breathing” On the chin “this constricted breathing” 16 . OK. Sometimes in order grasp this people think of a thermometer or a yard stick. a kind of before and after kind of thing.
now counter clockwise. keeping your head nice and steady. congratulations . keep tapping that point Close your eyes. open your eyes. Now take a nice deep cleansing breath and exhale …………………. hum 2 seconds of that song. eyes hard down right toward the ground. How does that feel? What’s your SUD’s level now? What was your SUD’s level at the beginning and how would you rate this breath that you just took? How much of an improvement did you see? If you really saw a great improvement. eyes hard down left. Roll your eyes in a clockwise circle.On the collarbone “this constricted breathing” Under the arm “this constricted breathing” Inside thumb point “this constricted breathing” Index finger Middle finger Little finger “this constricted breathing” “this constricted breathing” “this constricted breathing On to the karate chop point “this constricted breathing” Now to the 9 Gamut point. keep tapping the 9 Gamut point. 17 .you’ve just successfully completed using the EFT Basic Recipe. Back to the crown point “this constricted breathing” “this constricted breathing” Now move down to the inside eyebrow point And the outside eyebrow point Under the eye “this constricted breathing” “this constricted breathing” Under the nose “this constricted breathing” On the chin “this constricted breathing” On the collarbone “this constricted breathing” Under the arm “this constricted breathing” You can include the finger points again as well as the 9 Gamut point. count rapidly 1 2 3 4 5 and hum again.

Remember this recipe so that you can use it anywhere and at any time.
Name the 2 points that can be used with the set up phrase. Why do we use a song such as “happy birthday” in the 9 Gamut procedure? 7.Hear are some questions to help you remember some of what has been shared with you in the material from part one of the workbook. 2. Which organ is connected with the point just under the breast and why is it that we do not always use it? 5. 3. 4. 8. Gary Craig developed EFT from TFT. 6. What is the general meaning of mind/body medicine? What does SUD’s mean and why do we use it? 19 . Part 1 Questions 1. explain his reasons for doing this. List the tapping points on the head and body. Explain the 9 Gamut procedure.
That’s what appeals to me about EFT. but on the client’s energy system in a more focusing on specific points in a meridians’ way. EFT tends to be more client centred. and what feelings are coming up for the client. So that was where TFT and EFT parted company. In my view. You can focus on the client and what the client’s giving you. Of course when people get to a higher level. on points that referred to conditions that the person had had. but getting to do them quite automatically and really focusing on what kinds of issues.Behavioral Kinesiology. So we know the relevance of acupuncture points on the body has been around for a very long time. why do we get so hung up on working out exactly which points are relevant. if it doesn’t take very long to tap a series of points that cover everything. went on a TFT training and became quite steeped in TFT.Part Two The Evolution of EFT and the One Minute Wonder Judy Byrne talking about the meridians. Callahan was a Clinical Psychologist and was influenced by both his own study of meridians and acupuncture and acupressure. 20 . and it’s also cropped up in the Bantu in Africa and the Inuit. Roger Callahan Thought Field Therapy. Gary Craig. what kinds of aspects. Its history goes way back. So there is this transition and taking in of western ideas into an eastern tradition. We know from evidence that has been found. for instance a 2000 year old body that was found frozen in the Alps between Austria and Italy in 1991 (as by that time it was possible to date it accurately). hang on. whereas TFT is focusing on the client. but then thought. so the more recent history of it and how it came into western culture has been partly through several people – George Goodheart – Chiropractic/Kinesiology. and that body had tattoo marks on it which would still be acupuncture points today. We tend to think of China and Japan – acupressure and acupuncture . EFT is about getting to know how to tap certain points. and what emotions. John Diamond . founder of EFT.but other meridian therapies have come probably spontaneously in other quite different cultures. so it seems to have evolved in different cultures. they become more intuitive and they dip in and out of the points more intuitively. their relevance and importance Judy EFT is just the latest in a long line of energy meridian therapies. but nevertheless the basis is knowing the series of points and knowing them so well you don’t have to think about them. and by being aware of what people like Diamond were doing at the time.
or exactly what points. So I don’t want any of that concentration to go on muscle testing. doing any therapy or using any other tool in a therapy is about focusing on the client with intense concentration. Because to me. or not have to do all of that I should say! Judy Yes! You can do it with EFT. I’m not an expert on it but it seemed to work on two levels. I am not a great fan of muscle testing but I know that people who already know how to muscle test will bring the skills they have into EFT. in exactly what order are relevant to problems that they are working with. and in what order.Gary Thought Field Therapy was quite a complicated process wasn’t it really? Judy Well. but you’re gaining in another. so you had to diagnose whether it was anger or fear that you were dealing with. Gary Do you think that people may feel that they are missing out on something by not doing TFT because of all the complications? Judy Do you mean clients or practitioners? Gary Well both really. yes. Gary But you can still do all of that with EFT. So it is quite a different focus in a way. At the higher level people do muscle test a lot to work out exactly what points. and know an algorithm that corresponded to that. When I first looked at it and decided not to go there it seemed to have a series of algorithms. Judy They may do but my feeling is that you may be missing out on something at one level. Gary And do you think that the meridian system as it is laid out is important to EFT – you know that’s what’s actually happening? 21 .
Judy 98% of me probably says yes. that there are differences in the electrical response either side of the traditional meridians. It has become possible to see. Gary But we are tapping those points that are marked up on those meridian systems? Judy Yes. So. Mary had a life long fear of water and my understanding is that she was about 40 years old at the time. we have the evidence that the meridians exist. She could only bathe in about an inch of water which was very troublesome for her. but she had to be facing away from it. and he had a particular client named Mary. 2% of me says that we don’t absolutely know for sure. had nightmares and had different physical issues around water. They are probably related but I wouldn’t lose faith in EFT if somebody came up with another explanation. We have the evidence that TFT works. Judy Some people use it as absolutely the explanation. Brad There was a psychologist called Roger Callahan who was very interested in working with phobias. So. who discovered the tapping process when working with a client called Mary. and if you stimulate the other side of it that doesn’t happen. There is actually very good evidence now recently that the meridian system as it’s been described does exist. For instance. as our measuring instruments have become more sophisticated. if a meridian is stimulated it will release serotonin and other endorphins. Now Brad Yates talks about Roger Callahan. but to me it’s probably the most likely explanation. the best they could do was have her sitting near a swimming pool. Gary But we still use that as a basis. Dr Callahan was expanding his knowledge in different ways and was taking a 22 . After working with Dr Callahan for about a year. But I am open to the possibility that what we are doing is working in some other way. She was kind of ok with that but it was still kind of difficult. She had seen various therapists.
So that was how he came up with just tapping all of the points in order and he found that he was getting the same remarkable results clearing things out. They were no longer having these uncomfortable reactions and Dr Callahan came up with a discovery statement “all negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system”. Dr Callahan said that there’s a meridian point under the eye that has to do with the stomach – let’s see if we can do something about that. Within a year he put himself out of business because all of his clients who had been coming to him on a weekly basis with their issues felt cured. and then another point for a different issue. tapping this point. and there is energy travelling along pathways in our bodies called meridians. Taking that training Gary looked at all the different algorithms that Dr Callahan had come up with. who had trained as an engineer at Stanford.why not just have it all overhauled. but the clearing out of uncomfortable emotions. Acupressure and acupuncture are based on thousands of years of Chinese medicine.course in acupressure. But she got down towards to the pool and started splashing water on her face and had no negative reaction whatsoever. So knowing that there were different points on different parts of the body relating to physical issues. and when this energy is out of whack. then this point for one issue and this point. And she looked at him and said “It’s gone” and he said “what’s gone” and she said “the fear” and started running towards the swimming pool. So in Chinese medicine you keep people’s energy balanced and their wellbeing is maintained. he asked Mary what physical issues were coming up at the time when she was having trouble about water. and he thought why not just tap them from top to bottom in order. He came up with different algorithms. and so he tapped her under the eye for a few moments. and he goes running after her shouting “stop” and she said “No. I don’t know how to swim”. and naturally Dr Callahan thought “well that’s very interesting!”. She said that she was experiencing a knot in her stomach. So Dr Callahan started this technique and one of his first students was Gary Craig. And so he started trying this with different clients and found that with different issues. He had thoughts that it was all a bit complicated as you had to go through all of this diagnosis to find out which points to use. no it’s ok. It would only take a few moments – it was the same as if a TV set wasn’t working and you took it into a shop. and if it wasn’t going to cost any more time and money to replace everything rather than going through to find out which tube or which dial was having a problem . So by tapping on the meridian points we balance that energy and clear out the disruption. 23 . and there were only about 8 points that were being used anyway. So not only do we see an enhancement to physical wellbeing. he needed to tap different points. illness is experienced.
So he called this new streamlined therapy, which had been called Thought Field Therapy or the Callahan Technique, the Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT. Gary Are there any important aspects to learn from when Dr Callahan observed Mary running towards the pool and everything? Brad Well, that it doesn’t have an idiot factor! She didn’t think “I’m now not afraid of water, I’m now going to jump in!” just like if someone is cleared of a fear of heights, they’re not going to go jumping off buildings thinking that they can fly! We clear the excessive emotion, we can remove fear without removing natural caution – that is a key point – as well as it is about balancing this energy which can get disrupted, and when we balance that we clear that out, and this affects the body and mind in a positive way. Gary And I suppose you could class that as a one minute wonder. Is that true in every case? Brad No, that’s always the danger in telling this story as it was a one minute wonder, and we certainly have those. We’ll work with people and an issue that has troubled them all their lives or for what seems ages, is gone in a matter of moments. Most of the time it doesn’t happen quite that quickly or easily. It’s usually more of a process and to use Gary Craig’s analogy of a forest, more often we are cutting down tree by tree or taking out certain areas but not taking it all out at once. But we see both.
Here’s EFT Master Tania Prince talking about one minute wonders
Tania I have had one minute wonders, but I do find that some people come in and get disappointed if they don’t get a one minute wonder. Almost like “it doesn’t work for me so I must be a failure”. I think that it’s good to dispel that because some issues are considerably complex and they take considerably longer than one minute. These things take as long as they take basically. But it is very nice when you do get a one minute wonder. Saying that, I worked with a lady who had had a spider phobia for about 50 years and it took about one minute to get rid of a life long spider phobia. So the speed at which you get rid of a problem is not dependant on the length of time that you’ve had a problem. 24
Gary It is important to know that isn’t it? As there could be an assumption that because you’ve had this for a life time it’s going to take a long time to get rid of it. Tania I think that people might naturally make that assumption, but that’s not necessarily true at all. I don’t think that the two are linked, so it’s interesting.
We continue the conversation with Ingrid Dinter
Ingrid It is definitely true that with a round of tapping a person‘s life completely transforms. Actually the shortest session that I ever had with a client was probably a five minute session, and she had never had EFT before. She came to me and said that she was all closed up and that she used to be an artist and that she didn’t even have access to her own feelings any more, and we just hit it right. We tapped and she looked at me and she was going to get up and say “thank you very much this was great” so I said “wait a minute what are you talking about” and she said “that was exactly what I needed, the door is wide open and I know what I’m doing” and boy was she right! So in just five minutes she opened that door, went home and changed her life. Changed her job and started to study EFT and teach it to the kids and everybody else. So that’s a great example of that. Sometimes what is really needed is one round of tapping or a few rounds of tapping on the right things. But what that does not mean is that this is true all the time. I think what really matters is having experience with EFT so that we really learn to see things in a larger context. Even though we can release a certain aspect of traumas with a round of tapping or two, it does not mean that the entire trauma is gone. You know you see it on Gary’s DVD’s over and over when he says – that specific event, how does that feel? – and that might be down to a zero, but that does not mean that the complete problem has been resolved. In my field, working with veterans, I would never assume a one minute wonder. I know that these men and women have been through a lot, and I want to get to as many aspects as there are and work with as many things as they want to work with, and I assume that that takes time.
I do see that compared to traditional therapy – according to what they tell me about their experience, we get phenomenally quick results. I always see results after every session. I have yet to see a session that didn’t bring positive results. I’ve been doing this for more than 8 years and have yet to see that people don’t have lasting results after only one session, and many of these men and women come to me after 20 or 25 years of traditional therapy, so I can compare to the results they were getting otherwise. Is this always the case? I don’t know but that is what they are telling me. But we have to honor oftentimes that problems are very complex, very much intertwined and one thing goes to another and to the next and if we really want to help somebody make a complete shift in their life, and live the life that they want to live, and make their own choices, we have to honor that there might be many, many reasons why the person is where he or she is. So I find it a respectful thing to honor our clients and their complexity and not have our own agenda, and think that I’m just going to show you that we can fix this in a minute. Gary If you have someone come to you who says they want to be fixed really quickly, how do you deal with a person like that? Ingrid It is very effective to work with EFT on various specific events so if somebody says that they have a specific thing that they would like to release, a specific memory, then we can take the charge out of that, and that charge is gone afterwards. I see that over and over and over. So if somebody says that they would like to have a quick lasting release from something then I would like to know in which area they would like to experience that and zero in on something. Gary Are there some people that you can’t help in that way, that maybe they are expecting too much? Ingrid I assume so. I see very often that people I work with very often assume that they cannot be well. Just feeling a little better would be enough for them. So for some reason or another they are not willing to heal completely. They can’t see themselves well, they don’t even know what that means. It’s not really desirable to them because they feel safe with the way they live – even though it is difficult and complicated. I think it is a miracle if we can take the charge out of something that happened in the past and has been bothering us for many, many years. But if somebody has 25, 30, 40, 50, 100 traumas we have 26
to honor that as a reality. And the beauty of EFT if that when we get to the most fundamental energy disruptions or beliefs or feelings that a person has, and really let those go, those that relate to this initial core trauma usually seem to subside as well. For example, if someone has a traumatic event that makes them believe that they are worthless, and we can go and release this really big, big trauma, then the many many times in their lives when they perceived themselves as being worthless can’t hold up any more, because the only reason they saw it this way was because they had this belief in the first place. So things are really connected - when you chop down a tree the branches have to come down as well. So that’s why it’s so important to go after core issues, but if somebody has many trees you have to go after them. The beauty of it is that as soon as the first tree has fallen, lives begin to change and at some point it’s really the question of how far does this person want to take this now. People come to a place of choice in their life. They can say you know, I can either go the old way or I could go a new way. And they would rather go a new way, I would rather tap now than being all upset . I would rather do this or that now and that means that they claim their power now and they begin to direct their own life instead of being a victim. Once people have released this feeling of victimisation and claimed their power and make choices, then their lives have a different dynamic, a different pace and a different meaning. When that happens, and I see that very often with my veterans between sessions 3 and 6, very, very often they say that they started to tap and things began to change. Then the question is how far do you want to take it now? Do you want to release everything or do you find a place where you say I settle with that? People are different there.
Tania Prince talks about testing a one minute wonder to see if it really is a one minute wonder.
Tania If I am working with someone and it seems to be clear after one minute, I want to be testing that because some people are very very keen to get a result, they might not test it properly within themselves, and you do need to test it because you want to make sure that there is a true result there. So I’ll go for multiple testing mechanisms with the person. One of them is to ask them to think and try and get that back and be ruthless with yourself. I will only ask that if I felt it was safe to ask them to do that. I will give them time to do that because I want them to go through every possible thought they could have to get into it, because you want to make sure it’s 100% gone.
The pieces are beautiful. and then tap on all of the points.I now talk to Dr Carol Look and ask her why it is so important to continue doing the Basic EFT recipe before moving on too quickly. but ask me to do it and we’ll see if it will move somebody along. so they are not tuned in. Usually people don’t feel comfortable enough to move on and start playing with the words. Gary How long should we be doing the Basic Recipe before moving on to more advanced work? Carol There’s really no rule of thumb. Someone was talking to me about that and they said it’s like learning French or Italian. “I’ve seen Gary do it”. What I would say about the Basic Recipe is that you should always be using the Basic Recipe. so I would not drop the pieces. I’ve watched people who have moved on and they are clearly not ready as they are not looking at their clients. I know it’s a drag. Doing advanced work is all about your own emotional growth and your comfort level in a new area. You don’t want to skip the grammar. and the short cut that Gary Craig has been using for years now is more than adequate and is beautiful. So there are people who are learning it and they don’t know what Tell the Story Technique means. focus on the problem and check the intensity ratings before and after. Well. really important. then you can start to shift the phrasing. Carol It’s really. I say to people – learn the basics – I teach them the finger points in a workshop setting – and I say it’s up to you if you want to you use them when you are stuck. and I think that’s a mistake. Again I use 9 Gamut if somebody is stuck. it’s not a good idea – you’ve got to be tuned into your client and watch then and feel them and really know what’s going on. they don’t know what the Tearless Trauma Technique means. And they say that they are doing the intuitive ramble. but again the basics of EFT – why would you give those up? Start on the karate chop point “Even though I have this problem I deeply and completely accept myself” or some version of that. there is no reason to stop all that. they don’t know why the set up is so important. I always teach 9 Gamut and you’ll see that I won’t do it much in the next 3 days (on a workshop). but you don’t want to skip the beginning parts because you’ll never get it quite right. 28 .
What is a key point about removing negative emotions such as fear. What is an initial core trauma and what sometimes happens when you collapse an initial core trauma with EFT? 6. or they drop the eye brow point. practice.. as well as practise.... Hear are some questions to help you remember some of what has been shared with you in the material from part two of the workbook. they’ll need it again.. The sophistication again is in your knowledge of the subject and your understanding of a particular client. Why is it so important to test your results? 7. It takes confidence to jump in there.. EFT practitioners need practice because it’s pretty awkward to sit in front of a client – maybe someone with a fear of bridges “Even though I’m scared to drive over bridges..If someone can drop the pieces – say they drop the karate chop with a lot of people – but they will need it again. That’s where people need to do training and they need to practise. There is no need to start getting fancy with that. It takes so little time to tap on the points.. 4. practise! 2. What is most important to be focussed on when working with someone else with EFT? 3. practise.. practice the physical part of this EFT practice and getting comfortable with the EFT phrases in the set up. or what happens with people’s limiting beliefs. What is the danger of focussing on one minute wonders? 5. Part 2 Questions 1. Why is it so important to continue using the basic recipe when starting out with EFT? 29 .”. with EFT. your understanding of the mechanism of what happens in trauma. Why is a thorough training in EFT important.
I was beaten. Not being specific. really zoning in on a specific event. what might happen is . and you’ve got your box of evidence.if we are trying to clear a stain on our floor .Part Three Get better results by being more specific and dealing with Aspects Brad I am reminded of an expression that I think is from Gary Craig “to get results that are terrific be specific” and it’s because when we are really specific about a certain thing we can really tune into the emotion that’s there. it is like what specifically did this person do. So in terms of being specific. rather than being broad. It feels much more comfortable to keep it general and say “I was always yelled at. he breaks laws”. then we can really go in and do a much more effective job of clearing that out. 30 . and you are the prosecuting attorney at this point. so it may take some tapping and some clearing to get down to where it’s specific. I was rejected”. Think of a time that your mother yelled at you that really stuck out. What is the strongest evidence against you. With anything that we are clearing . what exactly did you do?” Because in a court of law the attorney can’t just say “This man is a criminal. But when we go in and be specific we can really tune into the heart of that. You know obviously if we can find where the pain really is. like they are not likable. so that you can really get into the heart of the matter. and they will try to keep it away from being specific because it doesn’t feel safe to go there. and people often resist this. and you are presenting the case that you are not lovable. we could tap on “even though mum always yelled at me” but what could be much more effective would be to come up with an exact memory. One of the things I like to do is if someone has a limiting belief about themselves.we want to focus right where the mess is. Now sometimes we are not sure what’s there. not lovable – I’ll say “Imagine a court of law. what was the crime that was committed? So going in and really rather than just saying “Oh you know I was bad or this person was bad to me”. He can’t do anything with that. and really do an effective job of clearing it up. and really clear it.Say I’ll ask a client what is it that’s troubling you? And they will say “well my mum always yelled at me”. It’s like doing the movie technique and going in and asking what are the exact moments that were involved. and going in as close as you can moment by moment to all the different parts of that.
like a forest? Rehana Chopping down the trees . Getting to the nodules that the client can’t see because there could be so many other little nodules. It’s isolating one aspect at a time or one area to work with rather than trying to work on everything at the same time. there and everywhere.like Gary says you have to chop them down one by one. and they may not even be aware of that. so that is the job of the EFT practitioner really. The whole idea is to resolve whatever is causing you the negative emotion. because until you get the tap root it’s not going to collapse the whole issue. finish that before moving into the next one. and then get very specific with that item to find the core experience. because this is a core fundamental of EFT and that will collapse that issue using EFT.More now on being specific and persistent from Rehana Webster. 31 . because if you don’t you will be getting nowhere. and then doing either the tell the story technique or movie technique. So if you get the one tree that is causing all the problems. that’s the hardest for them to even see themselves or to be able to get to. when you are trying to cut down weeds you want to get the tap root rather than all the little weeds around it. So once you have isolated something you want to work with. and making a big mess in the forest that you trying to level. Because otherwise they won’t have resolution of anything in particular. Rehana The whole idea of being specific is breaking it down for the client and getting to the nodules. then all the other trees that are related will collapse in on themselves and resolve the problem. Gary Are aspects like what Gary says about the trees. that a client will tend to wander as the mind does. Gary Can clients keep wandering off and start talking about other aspects when really you need to be homing in on one specific aspect? Rehana That is what Gary Craig says over and over again. agree with your client that that is what you are going to work on. but as you say they need to work on the one specific area or aspect. or the core imprint that caused the problem to begin with. as it goes here. It’s like getting the tap root.
most people remember this video as it’s so dramatic. 32 . he’s getting more specific and she is still calm and she says “My father raping me” she is still calm. and then they go to a break . so that means we can go deeper. So she starts tapping on “even though I have this deep sadness” and they tap on that. So he says “Was it one time or many?” and she says “Many times” and she is still not overwhelmed. for Gary with Victoria he said “Well. is the more we can get inside of that and release it. and she says a sadness. or I feel so guilty. At the same time if we can’t be specific just looking at one of Gary Craig‘s first DVDs . so we may have numbed them out. So it is kind of a duality as we want to be as specific as possible but we don’t want our clients or ourselves to feel like failures. and then how do we become more specific? It is very easy actually. If someone’s overwhelmed you go with as specific as you can be without putting the client in more trauma. Maggie Telling people that it is so important to be specific can also bring up feelings of failure. she is so calm. so in my eleven years of EFT I have found that to be very true. and she is crying and Gary asks her what’s going on. and then you would tap on that “Even though I have this great guilt” “Even though I have this deep sadness” whatever it is.in it a women named Victoria is on the DVD and he was working with her on smoking. and the guy doing the video just continues during the break. She starts crying. she’s not crying. “I should remember” and those kinds of things in clients and in ourselves . she’s not overwhelmed anymore. and it then comes to a six or seven. and why would we remember some things? They can be pretty nasty things to remember.and that’s not really appropriate when we judge ourselves. if someone’s angry you tap on “Even though I have this huge anger” until it comes down. or to blame ourselves if we can’t be specific. she’s calm. or are hard on ourselves because we can’t remember. assuming it was at a ten at first. or I feel hopeless. What I find with EFT is the reason that it is good to be specific is that the more specific your language is and the more specific your focus. So this takes place in about 20 minutes to a half hour. what makes you the saddest?” They were working on sadness. and then to a four and when it then comes to a three. so if someone’s crying what’s going on? Well I am so sad. we can be more specific because we want to be as specific as possible without putting our clients or ourselves through unnecessary pain and suffering.In contrast now Maggie Adkins looks at the negative side of being specific.
but there are many EFT practitioners who are not confident yet in their practice – they are half way going “What am I going to do with this?” They are thinking “Am I going to be able to handle this?” So they are already thinking of an answer. or we could tap on “Even though I am afraid to remember. he says “Was there a worst time?” she says “Yes. We have to really listen to what our client is saying. and Gary says “Well we have balanced out your meridian system”. Gary Are there any tricks that we can do to be more specific? Maggie Well. I should remember that” and they do that enough to themselves. she says “I don’t know who that other women was. and the client is still talking. and the more specific you are. So it’s very important to be specific. then there is a chance that they will be shown something.. where they are at. Now the impressive thing about this is that about three months later. we need to be skilled at being with people. the first time”. the more powerful I think the EFT is. is not necessarily a trick. it helps to write it down. and it’s a great example of being as specific as we can without causing more harm. I have even tapped on “Even though I cant remember what happened and I should do” because if we get rid of the blame and guilt or judgment or whatever you want to call it. and then all of the sudden she says “Its gone”. and this is where the artistry of EFT comes in. And it’s so impressive. that visible ink on the paper. and he says to her “How are you doing”? The video pans to her face and the first thing I thought was “Oh my Lord” she has lost ten years and she looks so much younger. I think the first thing I thought of when you said “Is there a trick we can use?”. So they do EFT on the first time her father raped her. and I didn’t know that that was with me every day. until it was gone”. No. without causing more suffering. And what happens next is that Gary says “How are you doing?” and what she says. and I worked with her three or four months ago” or whenever it was. and I would almost bet $100 that this is verbatim. and we can see it maybe in a different way. and if we are working with ourselves. helping them to come through it in as gentle a way as is possible. I would never not tap just because I couldn’t be specific. Many people think because they know the tapping points they can do EFT. because I have watched it so much and remembered it. 33 . When we write it down we can literally see it.So he gets even more specific. and so I would just tap with whatever they had to begin with. how painful is that going to be?” So you tap with whatever you have. evidently she was at another workshop of Gary’s and he says “Victoria is here etc. what does that say about me. but I would never want a client to say “Well.
what is that pain that you are experiencing. and that will help them to release it. don’t you. and if you are just thinking about a pain in the head. If you are being very global you’re addressing the whole broad problem. But that is how a therapist helps people when they come in. I feel like my job is to be with my client wherever they are at. I think it’s important to be specific. and perhaps remember that particularly nasty thing. pain is pain. it’s about getting really good results. it’s true that our client comes in not knowing how to pull that apart as such. That’s Maggie Adkins and my thanks to her. You know we can have different qualities to that pain in the head. and not really listening to the answers that are coming back and thinking about their questions. there may be so many aspects and pieces to that problem that when you begin to tap on it you are really not getting as good a result as you would be if you got really tight in on what exactly the problem is. but to honour them in that. Gary You often hear. and to honour that. they just look at things as one big problem. and how even a headache can have various qualities. because if you are working on a pain in the head and you tapped on that. They help them to get. It could be a throbbing pain in the centre of the head. as when using EFT. as much as possible. and here is Tania Prince talking about how important it is to be specific. instead of having the mind go round and round. which is the next one on the list? Maggie That’s right exactly. Listening is so important. But when you get really specific you also know when things shift by the way. interviewers interviewing people. Such as if you are addressing a pain in the head. where is that pain that you are experiencing? They help tighten it up really. in exactly more detail. the more likely you are to get a good and profound result. the quality of the feeling could change and change location.So I would write it down if I was working with myself. Also I think that we are building the kind of trust and rapport that people will be able to unfold into. you may still have a pain the head and it may bypass you the fact that it has 34 . and the more specific you get on that. yes? Tania Yes. Gary Yes. whether I would want that for them or myself or not. or it could be something different. as things are clearer so that you can actually listen to yourself. and then evaluate what to do.
and begin to strip away the layers by being global. detail. like this anger or things like that. but that’s the practitioner’s issue. and more details begin to pop into the person’s mind or they remember some specific events.become different. and you can lose rapport. they couldn’t get more specific at the beginning. I think that it’s a good starting point as when you work with some people. or if you are even working on yourself and you can’t get into detail. detail. and it’s much better really to take them where they are. 35 . Then you are not even noticing the results and you might be a bit disillusioned. thinking . So if the person can’t get into detail and get more specific you have to start where they are. and that kind of stops us from getting underway? Tania If the person you are working with can’t get into detail. And see what pops up and you begin to get into more specific stuff then. if you keep trying to push them and ask for detail. Gary When learning EFT we often use global phrases don’t we. because that’s where the person is and it’s about accepting that. Gary Could it be that we worry too much about being specific if you like. so are you saying that we need more detail? Tania Well. Gary So if you are working with someone and they can’t seem to give you any detail. Clearly they need to tap out their own frustration with that so that they are not frustrated. and EFT will then begin to strip away the layers of the problem. if you are working with someone else you will often lose rapport because they may be thinking I don’t know and I don’t know and I don’t know. that can be quite frustrating for the practitioner as well can’t it? Tania People can be frustrated. so you start where the person is. they don’t have detail. so EFT can naturally begin to take you to more specific detail.well I’m not getting much happening here.
how they move”. Brad As Gary said. such as “well I don’t like the way my roommate squeezes the toothpaste from the middle” . Gary And that’s an aspect of the problem as such? Tania Yes.Gary So what questions can we ask to get into the specifics of a problem? Tania I think there is one really good question which I usually ask which is “What is it specifically about that. So now you are getting down into detail – it’s how the spider is moving. in a sense? Tania What specifically about that is a problem? Say if you are addressing a spider – now a person might not have an issue with a spider that was dead. Gary So you are asking how is that a problem for you. we can tap on that. but they could have an issue with a spider that has got very erratic movements.if we go to a specific thing that bothers us. it gets you down into the detail and then you can ask . In fact it is a very common aspect of a spider which is a problem for many people is if you ask the question “What is it about the spider that is specifically a problem for you?” they could say “well. that is a problem for you?”. there are a lot of different trees there. as opposed to being just a spider. So when we look at something which is bothering us. and there might still be things that come up because even in that specific event there might even be different aspects. it’s the movement. and we get down specifically instead of just tapping on someone’s behaviour. 36 . issues can often be like a forest.what is still a problem for you? Brad Yates gets down even deeper into the importance of being specific. and so it’s a really good question to get into detail very quickly. Then the person begins to break it down into the smaller components of the problem.
and some people will say that I guess it means that it didn’t really work and I didn’t really clear those things. So that’s why persistence is a good thing. and we go into all kinds of meanings for different things. she could still look at it. And so sometimes we are working on clearing an issue. it feels like this person doesn’t like me. She couldn’t even look at a spider. or they’re doing it against me. and also we can go back and sometimes listen to a tapping round. and we may or may not have to clear all that. and who knows what’s for a person’s highest good. but now there was a different aspect. and that can go into the whole idea of testing. so the fear came up. The more aspects we clear the more the issue becomes completely and permanently relieved. He didn’t need to tap on all the aspects. and as specific as we get and we might be tapping on it. So we tap until we are clear. and there was something about the way that a spider moved which was a different aspect. it’s that we have cleared one tree but there might be other trees there and we keep exploring them to clear them out. and we feel that we have relief and it seems to come back. when we want to find out whether there are still some aspects there. Gary was tapping with her and she could get to a point where she could look at a spider. but then the spider moved. there’s no more discomfort coming up around the issue. Gary So would you have to clear every aspect to get a cure from distress say about an accident. there were certainly a number of aspects. and we may need to be specific. So it was not that she had lost what she had gained in terms of being more comfortable around spiders. that’s a good way to break down the aspects of a particular event – the different aspects of what goes on in an accident like that. It’s not that it’s come back. although certainly over the 40 years or so that she had had this fear. and going back through that we find something else. it feels like a waste of money – it feels like I’m being disrespected. we still might only be clearing certain aspects. So we can take an event. So we find out whether or not we’ve collapsed them when we can see that there’s no more SUDS. there is the story of the creation of EFT and the story of Mary’s fear of water. For instance. It’s that there are different aspects that when we are going through we feel better. that kind of thing? Brad Yes. There may be some higher good for 37 . One of the classic ones is when Gary was talking about a woman with a fear of spiders. and you might have felt great at the end of that.It could be – I don’t like that it messes up the toothpaste tube. say tapping on the sound of the glass breaking or the headlights of the other car. and how that benefits them to be specific about all the different aspects. Our minds are really complicated. but they all just sort of collapsed at once. and the body just clears it out. but it’s not really that at all. but going back through feeling some discomfort. Sometimes there is this generalisation effect where we are clearing things.
It’s really important when doing EFT not to make assumptions like that. It’s different with different people at different times. If you are absolutely on the bulls eye with a client they will go from ten to zero in one round. so the more you can be really careful and listen to the client. Jaqui If you are not specific enough then you are not going to be getting things shifting very quickly. repeat their words back to them with a similar intonation. because the change happens so quickly they forget they ever had the problem in the first place. if you are letting your head rule you rather than your intuition – you may start thinking that this has happened so it must mean this. use their words. and you don’t need to go back through and identify every piece of trash that’s you’ve thrown out. I’ve got this and I wonder whether it might mean this. Gary They have power don’t they. so rather than this means this. and to listen to the words that have that emotional charge to them. but to go into it with a . words? Jaqui They really do. and that’s often when you can get the apex effect.Well. 38 . you have listened really clearly to your client’s words and used your client’s words with their intonation. you just take the bag and you throw it out into the big can. Sometimes you know you are just not in quite the right place. the easier it will be to be on target with a client.that and sometimes it’s not necessary. So that’s one of the reasons that scaling things from zero to ten is really useful. to have a sense of curiosity. Sometimes it’s like taking out the garbage. so that you can say to clients when they say “oh yes that was a problem in the past but it’s not a problem now” and you can say “well actually two minutes ago when we looked at this it was a ten”. For example when a client says “when he said that to me I WAS SO PISSED OFF!” – so you tap on “I WAS SO PISSED OFF!” you’re likely to be on the bulls eye because those words with that intonation represents that energetic field for the client. That’s then leaving you open to other possibilities that may pop in. So that’s when you have been very specific.. One of the ways of being spot on target with a client is to listen carefully to what they say to you. Gary My thanks there to Brad Yates and now to finish off here’s Jaqui Crooks exploring the importance of questions and listening.
because it is quick and easy to do each one. but somehow they have a different energetic quality to them. And of course you can use the feeling in the body to help you get really accurate so – where’s that feeling? What colour is it? Is it hard or soft or smooth? Which will also keep you on target. But then of course there are all the stoppers. Gary Is that when we get stuck or believe that we are stuck? Jaqui Yes. a part of them thinks that they are not going to let go of that anger until that other person has acknowledged whatever it is that they have done. or is there something in the way? What’s coming up for you?” The client will often come up with the answer for you just by asking. if we were going to do that. if something traumatic has happened at some point and they’re still holding a lot of anger. So those are ways of staying on target. how do you think we could do that?” And often they will come up with something that to me as an outsider sounds identical. if clients are really angry with somebody. So you can put something like that in the statements usually with something like a maybe or that it’s possible. They are not going “I’m going to hold on to this until they apologise” but there may be a child like part of them that is still doing that. it actually doesn’t. And you tap on those two separate steps and everything just clears completely. I often say to a client “I’ve got this down to a specific statement as I can do. and they are not doing that on a conscious level. is there a better way we could get at this.So the client has the answers. all the things that are going on for the client that might make whatever it is that you are working on. so that the client can go in and check. So you can take a statement and break it down into smaller chunks. then the client is going to hang on to whatever it is that is going on. Sometimes you are tapping on a statement that you think is as specific as you can can get. If you untie the bundle and break each twig separately. and you know that you are in the right area. it’s really hard to do that. if you had to guess. not seem like a good idea because it is a part of them. rather than ask a direct question. and it’s just not shifting quite as quickly as you would like. One of the analogies that Gary uses about being specific is if you have a whole bundle of twigs and you are trying to break them all in one go. so long as you say. and it looks to me as if it may still be a little bit too big and it needs breaking down into an even smaller step. It’s like you 39 . and sometimes it can be really useful to say to the client “I am just wondering .we are doing this and it’s not working as quickly as I expected. although it appears that that might take longer.
because you are not doing what you have always done. Gary So you are kind of coping with things aren’t you by being stuck and not releasing the things. which can be really helpful. “Even though a part of me may not want to let go of this anger because it may think that the other person doesn’t deserve me to do that. Sometimes if they are angry with themselves or if they are feeling guilty. So it’s all about finding out what your client’s particular survival techniques are. So again. You know the law of attraction says like attracts like and if your vibration is different then you will be attracting people with a different vibration. a really good reason to do something different. “Even though I think that a part of me will never deserve to let this go. my partner might not know who I am. So all those things can be going on because a part of you is trying to keep you safe. maybe I deserve not to carry those people with me for the rest of my life” or “maybe the person suffering here is me” or “maybe I deserve to be free of all these feelings”. I deeply and completely love and accept myself” and then of course you can go into the Level 3 reframe “Even though they may not deserve me to let go of this anger. So. So. Say if you are working on relationship issues. they think that they can’t let it go because they might make the same mistake again. And sometimes that can be enough just to settle that part down that’s fighting. and putting that in with a possibility. Then of course there are all thewhat if’s? What would happen if I let this go? People might not like me. all the identity stuff. so there is a period of adjustment and there is a chance that some people will move into your life and that some people will move out of your life. I know what to do about it. I might not like it but I know what to expect. but it just happens. it’s the comfortably uncomfortable. noticing what their language is and having a guess about what might be going on. “Even though I am so angry with myself. I don’t believe that I deserve to let this go. I deeply and completely accept myself”. it’s noticing what’s going on for the client. it is difficult for people because you are no longer the person that other people knew.are letting them know that it’s possible without telling them what’s going on. So if you are working on relationship issues as you 40 . not by any conscious means. I know what to expect here. it’s all about survival. So you can put in reframes there to give that part that really wants to hold on. I’d like that part to understand that I do”. If I let this go who will I be? How will I live my life? I won’t know what to do any more. All those things that try to stop us changing things are all about keeping safe. is that right? Jaqui Yes.
I deeply and completely accept myself. The other possibility is that they then change their vibration to match yours and you both work on a much higher level. if that’s what she wants to work on. it is a process of elimination really. they seem to be quite overwhelmed and they can’t pick these things apart can they? Jaqui No. So you can see it’s this feeling linked with this event. so you are getting even more specific for the subconscious. Gary So it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to move away from that person as such? Jaqui Not necessarily. Often relationships can go through lots of mini breakdowns and rebuilds as one person starts to change their coping strategies. to keep trying different things. So if you are tapping on even though I am really angry. do something else instead.clear your relationship stuff. I think the important thing is if something is not working. Gary A lot of people who first get involved with EFT and even come to people as clients. I go into every EFT absolutely knowing that EFT will make a difference. what would that be? It might be rage it might be fury and those words would have a much stronger emotional impact on the client. If there was a better word than angry for what you’re feeling. do something else. So I would then try doing it with those words. but absolutely knowing that it’s possible gives me the persistence to keep going. You can link the feeling with the event – even though I am really angry because my dad did whatever it is. I’m ok and it’s not shifting things. Gary You are picking out all the different aspects? 41 . What I don’t know is how or when or how long it will take me to do that. I see it as being a detective when I go into things. it’s possible that other people don’t clear theirs and therefore the vibration doesn’t match. don’t do more of the same thing. sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t.
Why does is seem sometimes that an issue that has been cleared comes back? 7. you are not having to put your conscious mind into what’s going on. You are just going on with what’s going on with the client and it will shift something. Explain the analogy that Gary Craig uses about being specific. I deeply and completely love and accept myself. focus on where they are feeling the feeling. “even though when I think about what my dad said I’ve got this hard red knot in my chest. How did Gary Craig help to keep Victoria safe i. I’m ok”. Why is it that people sometimes find that a part of them wants to hang on to their issue? 9. What can be a negative aspect of trying to be specific. how did he help her to clear her deep sadness. Explain the difference between being too global and being specific with your set up phrases. not traumatise her any further? 5. and for me the body feelings. the shape.. 2.e. If you are stuck and not sure where to go next. 4. Sometimes you don’t need to. 3. the texture is always a really powerful way to go. Hear are some questions to help you remember some of what has been shared with you in the material from part three of the workbook. You may not know what but it will shift enough for you to go in and start doing a bit more exploring. the colour. That gives you a breathing space. 8. Part 3 Questions 1. put that description in the statement so “even though I’ve got this hard red knot in my chest.Jaqui Yes. Sometimes the colour or shape etc. will do the job all on its own. When Gary Craig was working with Victoria. What is meant by comfortably uncomfortable? 42 . What is your best tool to enable you to be specific? 6.
it does also not work for a lot of people. the second part is. You’re being authentic with yourself about where you really are. and it may not even be about that.. But by breaking it up into 2 parts which I like to do. I think that they are not really connecting.. That’s the first most important part of the set up. I’d say that’s a Gary term where you reframe the problem “even though I have this problem I love and accept myself anyway” 43 . The fear of going there.. speaking it out loud while tapping. But staying in and acknowledging the energy of where you are right now. or that I’m overwhelmed or frustrated”. So talking through it is part of what the set up process is – you say “even though I feel. doing the rambling reframe. But also to start talking yourself into following the attention of what is really going on with me.. I think that that can work for some people. I deeply and completely accept myself. and I think for a lot of us that’s a completely new experience so even stepping into a basic set up phrase – “even though I feel . persistence and being creative with the Set-up Jade Barbee I think the set up statement is really important because it’s really important to take the time to acknowledge what’s really going on with you as you go through the EFT process. you might have to go through a little bit of fear. and to maybe take you a little deeper into what is really going on.. It’s really asking us to reach in us a place of acceptance of ourselves. So to really acknowledge it . I think that a lot of people are on autopilot with that. that’s fine too. this is what I am experiencing. which is why the set up has been such a flexible phrase and you hear a lot of practitioners kind of rambling. sometimes the fear of describing the feeling that you are having is actually bigger than the fear itself. the first part talking through as long as you need to – what is it that I am actually going through? I think it’s good to bounce it off another person if you are working with another practitioner or just speak out loud and talk through to yourself and just really get at the energy of what’s going on.. which is fine as I think EFT is very forgiving and just saying the words can help us really connect. I deeply and completely accept myself” the basic set up phrase.. where am I really at right now? And going in with the intention of allowing it to open up and blossom. or this is what is going on with me. By bringing that energy of where you are to conscious awareness. even if we don’t necessarily feel that way. and if where you are isn’t very deep into the problem.Part Three B Dealing with Aspects..and sometimes it’s a little tough to get at what’s really going on.
or you’re just ready to go onto the next thing. I would say that the energy is a different perspective. Otherwise we’re stuffing it down under the rug or pretending that it’s not there. Gary So that’s more conversational isn’t it? Jade Yes. You want to reach for something that’s true but feels better than being in the energy of the problem. it’s like reaching for the energy of feeling a little bit better. So you go back and forth “I still have this problem but I am willing to realise that I’m ok even though I have this problem”. And to transform. Something that will connect with them 44 . it’s not who I am”.“maybe I don’t accept myself but I am willing to be open to the possibility – I’ve had this problem for along time”. Just gently ask them to humour you and say things like “maybe I can be ok anyway. I stay in the set up a long time before even going to the sequence. Gary Some people can’t even say the set up phrase.or me as a practitioner. It needs to be something positive that I believe and a lot of people are not ready to say I deeply and completely accept myself. can they? They just can’t go there. what I like to think is that the set up is keeping us in the energy of the problem and holding us in that energy so that that energy is allowed to evolve in it’s own way. Jade And of course that’s information so you ask where can you go? Investigating where they are really at. I think feelings are pretty scary for a lot of people who have never done this sort of work before. and that’s why the second part of the set up . it’s just a problem. And lo and behold that’s what is transforming the feeling and the energy along with the tapping. Whatever it is that you need to say about the problem. You’re holding the energy of the problem in your mind and not letting it get away.I deeply and completely accept myself . Going back and forth reaching for that bit better feeling vibration. or improved confidence or improved piece of mind. even though I have this problem. and some people that I’ve worked with are so at odds with the process that they won’t say it at all. That energy is just transforming during the set up process. What the set up really does is allow us to hold that energy in an intentional space while we tap and allow EFT to do its magic. it needs to be something believable. We allow this feeling to become not such a big bad feeling any more. And it goes where it needs to go and generally where it needs to go is out of your body.
they can change that statement and be more creative? Jade Absolutely. And if you don’t know ask “what feels a little bit better for you?” What I will do sometimes is ask them to reach for something that makes them feel better which is completely unrelated at all. I think that does just as well as saying the conventional set up statement. So the language can just be built around that and you can say something like “even though I have this experience right now this is how I feel”. by being willing to connect with something that truly feels better.and as you have rapport with the person. the release is palpable. Gary It reminds me of working with children when you say “even though I have this problem or this fear. When you can say “even though I’ve experienced this. By connecting with that feeling of love you are showing yourself that you love and accept yourself. So sometimes we’ll say “even though I have this feeling of failure I really love my cat” and it’s actually the same vibration as “I deeply and completely accept myself”. In terms of creativity you are acknowledging that this is how you feel right now. and they are connecting with something that does feel better. and being willing to activate that vibration within you. Jade Absolutely. but thinking of it in terms of acknowledgment. it was really hard for me” or “it feels good to finally admit this” – that’s a set up statement. Like the energy of their animals – people love their animals so much and it’s easy to connect with a feeling of kinship and love with an animal. 45 . Gary So it has to be truthful? Jade I would say that truthful is better because you can just see someone’s face light up when they are making those cognitive shifts. you are going to know what to say to them. Gary So people who are just starting out with EFT. It’s a demonstration of self acceptance rather than just a statement of it. my mother loves me or my mum loves me”. or the teacher shouted at me.
and this is where I am right now. Gary In a sense it explains what you were saying about why we have to have the negative there if you like. and again that language of acknowledgement. and what I try to help them get their minds around is that it is simply you acknowledging the problem. And I think that I deeply and completely love and accept myself is too big of a leap. I think that when people can reach for that it’s a great place to start. 46 . and I think they are also more inclined to do it on their own. It is simply you saying that I am acknowledging that I have this problem. I would say though that it’s got to feel doable. Gary But a little voice in your head says “no you’re not”. it’s been a while since I was a beginner with EFT but I do often work with a lot of people who are new to it and that is a concern. but when people start feeling empowered to change that to suit them better. I just see people connecting with the process more deeply. Jade You are acknowledging the negative process that has brought you to this place in the first place.. and there’s nothing wrong with reaching for an affirmation. and that language can be as simple as I acknowledge how I am feeling right now or it’s safe to be where I am right now.Gary And have you found that people worry about getting that set up statement absolutely right and maybe intellectualize it too much? Jade Oh sure.. Because a lot of people who are into affirmations stand in front of a mirror and say “I’m looking more and more beautiful every day” at least that’s what I do! Jade But in your case it’s true! Laughter. it can’t be too big of a leap. Just to sit with that and be where you are at this moment and language just flows around that... So you are acknowledging that little voice.
Gary Do you think it’s important to stick with the basics first though before you do what I would call a Brad Yates process. And I think it’s really useful. which when watching Brad you will see. and as it’s evolved over time I make the length of it vary. Then all the reminder phrases come from that set up phrase. What I love about the set up phrase is that it’s a very positive affirmation.And now more on the subject from Andy Bryce. You spend a bit of time collecting information. that there is a level at which it becomes conversational. So I think the thing with Brad and I. and it’s so part of you that it just flows out. I think we can work in reframes. We did some assisting together at Gary’s serious diseases workshops. Gary Craig took it and used it because it would cover the possibility that there would be psychological reversals. Andy Bryce Well originally as I understand it. and Carol Look. because we identify that there is a problem but we state that we still love and accept ourselves. It would drive the people around me crazy. where you are just talking rather than coming up with phrases? Andy I work very similarly to Brad so what I do could be considered to be a Brad Yates process. I think that that was helpful for me in building my own self esteem and so forth. It does allow for and correct psychological reversal. It’s interesting to hear it called that! Gary Shall I rephrase that? Andy No. it could be half a page or a page long sometimes. And when I first learnt the set up phrase ten years ago it was very simple. we can work in positive statements and we can also identify aspects of a particular event and put it all into the one set up phrase. It would be “Even though I have this headache I deeply and completely love and accept myself”. especially in practical sessions. and other EFT Masters. and then it just comes 47 . he is a wizard and a good friend. because if I was to write it out. So instead of waiting to see if there was psychological reversal we would use it every time. because the reminder phrases would also be very simple. and if you are using it long term and lots of times it’s a good thing to repeat. which is something which my clients would be familiar with.
So I learned quite a bit and then hanging out 48 . and you’ve got to get deep down into what the problem is etc. what do I think of next?”. etc. then you can do anything with them at all that’s relevant. the more you know and the more the foundation is secure. It’s really for the client. I think that the key thing in hypnotherapy or NLP and EFT is a high level of rapport. in a sense? Andy Well yes. Gary Do you think that people could jump too quickly into that maybe? Andy Well. practise. and that’s been helping his basketball game all round. practise. So when you do something as a practitioner that you are not comfortable with. I think it’s possible. I’m not going to get the right words. The results will let you know whether you’ve overstepped or not. I have a student who is a basketball player and we work on the fundamentals with EFT. Gary So it’s getting a thorough training then. So have you any advice for people who are just starting out and they are thinking “I’m going to get this wrong. and if you are listening or are aware of that you can stop and go on in a way that your client can handle. or that you’re not really fluent with then that can jar that rapport. then the high rise can go up quite quickly but I think that the basics in almost anything are important. I think that excellence is a far more achievable goal than perfection and if it stops you actually doing things then it’s not working.” And keep repeating that. Andy Well I would suggest that they do some tapping on “Even though I have to do it perfectly I deeply and completely love and accept myself. and when you have that level of rapport with a client or participants. So practise. I was fortunate to have so many clients and people who were willing to work with me before I was ready to charge for it. and I would say that’s the making of a good practitioner. That is an acquired and learned trait and we all worked hard learning the basics. Gary A lot of people worry that they get their statement just right don’t they? Because when we start to learn we have this set up and it’s got to be appropriate to what the problem is.out in a beautiful flow. knowing the basics before they go on an embellish and get complicated.
49 . sad or whatever. it does work and simple is probably best. Gary So you are resonating with the problem as such? Andy That’s right – when someone cuts you up and you flash on this rage. Because if you have just started out and you start working with someone with a diagnosed issue. Most of us dwell on things like that so it dissipates very slowly. Yes. when you’re feeling and you know it. Gary And can you ask of yourself “Why have I got this backache” and incorporate that into a statement? Andy Sure. Gary Is it true to say “even though I’ve got this headache” that this can sometimes work? Andy Well. So if you are starting working with this pain in my back or this sore knee. the set up statement is so flexible and in fact it can be done away with when you are in the emotion. or this headache is probably a good place to learn without a consequence which is unmanageable. you are outside and beyond your scope.with the people I was with. I think I had to learn that too because sometimes as a kid I didn’t want to do anything unless I could do it perfectly. I If you read something or have a video you have it intellectually but if you practice it and it’s incorporated and effortless I think it’s worth the work. you don’t need to say that as you are already angry. mental or physical. you do not have to identify an issue because you are there. When you are really upset. You just tap on yourself and maybe saying my white knuckles on the steering wheel. rather than not doing anything. and I think we have to understand the scope of our practice. either emotional. feeling this rush of anger and just tapping on being present with this feeling. Now I realise that learning is that opportunity to make mistakes until you get it right. training and assisting was brilliant. tapping immediately without saying “even though I am really pissed off at you” will work. So the more you can actually do to implement what it is you are actually learning. “Even though I don’t know why I have this and if there is a message here I would like to receive it another way”. which will allow it to flow through you and dissipate more quickly.
Then they call you after the flight and they say “Well I could get to the airport and I could get on the plane but we flew through a thunderstorm. So many clients will come back to us and say that it didn’t last or that it didn’t work. is a problem someone might have when flying on a plane. So it’s a good idea to listen to the first messages that your body is sending you. We continue the conversation with Dr Carol Look Carol Look Aspects are really important as they can make the difference between a successful EFT session or one that isn’t quite working. you can drive half way through 50 . Everything that occurs in our body is a message to our consciousness. then it won’t get collapsed with EFT. which was turbulence. or maybe you flew through a thunderstorm and that’s another aspect of your fear of flying. and isn’t this wonderful. It worked but you didn’t address every angle. You can approach it. I get so nervous at the thought of getting on the plane. Well that’s not true. and I get so nervous when we take off”. and what about landing? That’s another aspect of your fear but if it doesn’t come up in the session. and if we ignore it. EFT doesn’t work”. They say “I can’t even get to the airport I get so scared. They come into our offices and we do a wonderful session about their anxiety and about the airport and they are all surprised that they can now imagine going on the trip. the subtle ones and tap on that.Gary So we’re tuning into our body feelings as well? Andy I think that is one of the most important things about tapping. what it means is that you haven’t pointed EFT at another aspect which didn’t come up in the session. Gary So it’s important to hit every issue as such? Carol Well. you’ll think it doesn’t work when you get to the middle of the bridge. The easiest way for me to see this. knowing how we are experiencing it in our bodies. but the minute I felt the turbulence I freaked out. it will get more powerful and louder. bringing it back to that because a lot of us have been sort of separated from our bodies and we’ve become intellectual. if you have a phobia of bridges and you don’t hit every aspect of that. And the definition of aspects just means different angles of the problem.
What happens then? When I first hear my voice I usually sound a little crackly and a little nervous and that makes me nervous! That’s a huge one for people when they start to hear the sound of their voice and they don’t sound confident in their own ears. but they can imagine it and then get very strong responses when they imagine it. what happens next and how do you feel about it? Well I’m approaching the podium and you tap until they are so calm that there’s no problem when they are in your office. OK – tap. Then what happens? Then I start to talk. So he started to panic at that point as it hadn’t been addressed. You need to clear all the aspects. I get totally nervous. and just walk them through it. Well all you did was. Gary And do you find out what their SUDS level is after they’ve talked about a certain aspect? Carol Yes. walking up to the podium. Same thing with fears of flying. by the way the minute I see the audience. your nervousness. if I look up and look at their eyes. and the way I do that is have people walk through the problem. Well for some reason when describing it to the therapist the guy hadn’t said. being pushed into the little tube and what about the noise. They’ve never dealt 51 . let’s say for instance as they are in my office they are not in front of the crowd so it’s not real. Beginners say that they tapped on their fear of public speaking. When asked what happened they say that they looked out over the crowd and freaked out again. there’s lying down.and suddenly there’s an aspect when you turn and look to the left and see the wide expanse and we didn’t deal with that. getting dressed for it. tap until they feel so calm. Ok. I worked with a guy with a phobia about getting into an MRI machine. that’s when the anxiety really comes up. Let’s say it is a fear of public speaking . Gary So do you really need to be a detective and find all of those aspects? Carol Yes. So there are many aspects of a problem and they must be targeted with EFT to clear the whole problem completely. There’s several aspects. same thing with fears of marketing. Same thing when someone has a client coming and they don’t think they can handle them. and that makes them sound nervous in front of the crowd. tap. That very constant knocking noise of the MRI machine. then what happens? Well it’s the silence when they stop clapping. OK. reading your notes. How do you feel when it’s silent? Oh.
That’s what you want your client to say: “I can do it. I can handle that. and they can get the charge up pretty high. asking questions of the parents. I can handle this”. unless a therapist is able to take them to the real thing. They come back and say that it didn’t work. They get great results on a piece of the problem . it always gets me off centre. and how much of a charge do you feel in your body now? How do you feel now when you picture yourself giving that speech? How do you feel now when thinking about driving over that bridge.let’s say that a client has issues with eating sugar and so they tap on having cravings. Gary But do you want them to really mean that and not try and do it for your sake as such? Carol Yes. And that’s all it is – to be thorough. If you start suggesting things that might happen – suppose you’re on the plane and it’s a smooth situation and suddenly the plane is 52 . it is all sitting on a chair and imagining the situation.with an 8 year old before and they have all these concerns for example. They will tell you. Those are all different aspects that might contribute to the problem of someone using food to quiet their anxiety. They will respond because it’s such a visceral reaction. And that’s why you know that you can address it with the tapping and get it down and down and down. And yes I was drinking alcohol and yes my boss was there. Was there any other aspect. the client no longer has cravings in their own living room and they can’t believe it! But they are invited to a party and their anxiety related to socializing increases their concerns and overall agitation and they start eating the cookies. you are doing it differently then. and as I say it’s one of the difficulties with beginners. I hate that. Suppose somebody in the audience asks you a question out of turn – oh yes. So there are many aspects to each problem which we and our clients have. Suppose somebody in the audience coughs really loudly and that distracts you – ah no problem –or yes. yes there were 50 people at a cocktail party asking me questions. until you feel really confident. Considering that they are not in the live situation they can get the charge up pretty high. You’re not actually putting them on a plane or throwing birds at them like some therapies would do? Carol No for EFT purposes. So it’s not that EFT doesn’t work – it’s did you get every piece of this problem? Gary So in terms of finding aspects of fears and phobias. and that’s why you want to test it.
You can tap right away with them. I had a client who was newly sober and he was so worried about going home for the holidays. So what if you tap on aspects of the bridge phobia and they manage to get onto the bridge in a relaxed way and there is some kind of traffic build up? So you just keep saying what do you think might happen next which might set you off? It’s 53 . If they do . nothing happened but it was certainly scary. Let’s say you are working with someone with a bridge phobia and you don’t look at the possibility of getting over the bridge and then there’s a traffic jam. and he was mostly worried about his father. and now what? It’s always now what? Now what do you think is the next conflict or concern? Let’s say they’re going home for a family holiday. But he didn’t deal with the jerky cousin who offered him a beer.hit by lightening. plus. you are at the office party. And they tap about all their fears and concerns about their father and they didn’t tell you about their brother! Or they didn’t tell you about their grandparents who were senile and very hard to be around or whatever.just start tapping. There are many aspects and sometimes people will handle one piece of it. plus. I’ve been on a plane that was hit by lightening. What do you think will happen when it’s late and everybody is starting to go? How will you feel if you spill a drink?” Imagining anything that has happened with that person in the past in the situation. it wasn’t much fun. You just start tapping until it goes down low enough. How would you feel then? Gary But you are keeping your client safe as it were and really tuning into their resonance and level of that? Carol There is no need to get them up to a 10 plus. and walk them through it “what do you think might happen next. it was very upsetting for him. but there’s no need to get them into terrible discomfort or agitation. will that be anxiety provoking? Let’s say you are working on social anxiety with someone. Gary So you do the best you can and try to get as many aspects as you can? Carol Yes. you’ve made it through not having the drink or the cookies or whatever. He didn’t drink it but when his cousin asked why he wasn’t drinking. what if that particular superior of yours comes over and talks to you. So suppose this happened and what if your boss wasn’t going to come to that speech and then he shows up.
Gary I know people say that the first panic attack is THE panic attack. they are just waiting for it to happen. 54 . Carol Right. because you are saying I can handle anything. not only is it devastating and the physical symptoms are awful. tell me anything. It’s a specific event that happened the first time they panicked when they were at a theatre and couldn’t get out.really a lovely way to be with a client. Gary And a simple cup of coffee may bring it on because your heart may speed up and suddenly you think that you are panicking. They have such a trauma and memory of the first time they had this panic that you need to handle that as another distinct aspect. if you combine the caffeine with the fear in a situation which has enough triggers in it. Or you need to tackle the first one. Tap in another angle. during and after. That’s what wonderful about when I do the tapping for public speaking – people use the tapping before. And the second time when they didn’t think it would happen again and it surprised them. they usually no longer have that fear of the fear. and they didn’t see it coming. and then you’re off to the races. And adrenaline has a life of its own. what if it doesn’t work? What if I get surprised? You are talking about someone who is afraid to let go of the fear. what if that happens again? And the first one is a trauma – you imagine someone who has never had a panic attack before – let’s say they have agoraphobia (a fear of wide spaces) or claustrophobia (a fear of being trapped) and they have the first one. the first anxiety attack. And as you say. Gary Do you have clients who have the fear of the fear – how do I know that this is going to work when I am in that situation? Carol When the charge is low enough in your office. but after that it’s worrying about having another panic attack that brings it on. Carol Yes and they were taken by surprise and they then think. Once it gets triggered sometimes the tapping can work wonders with it and sometimes you need to ride it out if you don’t know how to handle it and don’t know how to get it down.
what else do you think could rattle you? “Oh I remember once when the lights went out the whole building went dark. right now? Is it an impatience. that can create the breakthrough. a desperation? Tap on the desperation. It’s not necessarily about who’s the best skilled – it can sometimes be a case of allowing your guidance to take you somewhere where you feel safe and comfortable and that you can take the next baby step forward. that’s a small mini trauma with a small t that happened and they need to deal with that because they have that somewhere in their energy system. if you are giving a presentation at work. And that’s ok. and what’s interesting is that shifting from male to female energy. If you are avoiding doing the tapping. Even though you might want to move forward.Gary So you can do it on many many things can’t you? Carol There are many things and aspects to a problem. Ok. More now from Rick Wilkes and Cathy Vartuli. with the right kind of skill yourself. ask yourself questions about do I feel safe addressing this right now. you may be at a point where some extra help is needed. You may be working with a very skilled therapist and find that your best friend does some tapping with you that creates that next breakthrough for you. So sometimes when people are “not persisting” it’s because the next step is not one to do yourself. that you are whipping yourself to do. So always ask what else might trigger you? If you are at a family occasion. male and female it may be the case that we share the same clients and the interesting thing that some people will be working with one of us and then shift to the other. usually that intelligence is trying to keep you “safe”. She couldn’t figure it out and couldn’t figure it out. I would tap on that – where’s your need to be fixed right here. if you are not in the right kind of environment with the right kind of support. Rick Wilkes If you treat persistence as something that you have to do. You know Cathy and I worked together. She got an intuition that she needed some help and we did an hour’s session and she said that she honestly couldn’t have gone there on her own. do I feel safe addressing it alone? I worked with a client who was tapping and making great progress and all of a sudden she stopped. It had nothing to do with my speech but I will never forget it. 55 . so I think that is what a practitioner’s job is. There shouldn’t be an occasion that people are not using their tapping. There is always an intelligence at work. I think that’s guidance. is not to consider everything simplistically. and the kind of different ways that Kathy and I approach the problem. It’s not just one thing – human beings are very complicated and how we learn can be quite complicated.
when you put a lot of pressure on yourself it’s sometimes hard to shift and when you are trying to be perfect you’re not really accepting yourself and acceptance is part of this process. 56 . Cathy Definitely – you could tap on “even though it’s not safe to go there right now. I was just anxious. is there someone that would be good to tap with? Is a question that they could ask. or the next day sometime. be abandoned. Reaching a new plateau. And that’s ok too and can very much be part of the process. I tapped a little ferociously for a week or two early on in my exposure to tapping. say what’s the next baby step for me. you’ll get that guidance. People will continue to do it without that same ferocity. Rick If we ask a person – where did you learn that you had to be perfect in order to be safe? It’s one of the most popular tappings that we do – I need to be perfect – I have to be perfect or else I’ll be rejected. how can I take the next step? And just be open to the possibility that in a dream or a thought in the middle of the night. I started building up a lot of feelings like “I want to get through this.enough. Gary Sometimes people are very persistent but it comes with trying to be perfect as well? Cathy Yes.Gary So could you tap on something like “Even though it’s not safe to go there now”. what would be the next baby step to take. Where do you feel that in your body and as you tap on that feeling of perfection oftentimes it takes the pressure out of the tapping. allowing yourself to collect and rebalance at a new vibrational set point before moving on. my brain. I’ve got 325 things on my list that I want to tap on” and then my body said . my spirit needed to collect itself. I was making so much progress. Rick Even if you don’t tap on it write it down before you go to bed. I’d eaten enough energetic shifts for a while and my body.
If you or someone else finds it difficult to say “I deeply and completely love and accept myself” what could we use as the second part of the set up phrase instead? 2. When would it be best to work globally rather than specifically? What could be stopping you or a client from letting an issue go? 57 . what might be the cause of becoming stuck and not being able to clear an issue? 4. 5. If you are working on yourself and clearing issues over time. Part 3b 1. Explain what is meant by aspects of the problem? 3.Hear are some questions to help you remember some of what has been shared with you in the material from part three B of the workbook.
and it has to be for a length of time. The head. if you hold a yo yo down. that’s kind of how you can think about it. and with EFT and MTT and other things we can clear these issues. if it’s not and let’s just go on in life. that’s your learned issue. So whatever that learning was when you were young. where’s that storage? Where’s that storage so that you start reacting to that learned issue? No matter how you perceived it. it’s not going to actually disappear. and that’s not actually true. and this originating thing has to be completely dissolved. You can call it the yo yo string. so you learned that happiness is bad. and you go ok .when other people might not think that.Part Four Focusing on the Gamut spot. Karin Davidson The most surprising thing is how it can get rid of the issue forever and we all think that EFT or Tapping or MTT is getting rid of the issue and all the aspects. Then when you are 6 you run in to show your daddy your art work with a star on it. but when you tap on the Gamut point. and he yells at you saying “I told you not to bother me. One is that the issue or thing that happens to you when you are young.I think that men are dangerous . If it’s not completely dissolved. 58 . but until we clear the original one where we learned it. say your mum yelled at you for making mud pies. it gets rid of what some people call the original gene histone which is the learnt part of the issue. that’s why they make you feel better. Wherever it’s stored there is an originating thing. So now at age 4 you run in to see your friends and some kid yells “what are you so happy about?” So that actually created a node on this string or whatever this thing is which is showing happiness is bad. chest and finger points actually make you eliminate the symptoms. get out!” So now you’re learning that showing happiness is bad. so all those things are little knots on the yo yo string. So is that stored in your cells? Is that stored in your field? Is that stored in the matrix? Is it stored in your brain? It doesn’t really matter with the Gamut point what we are doing and we are still finding things out about that. You can call this an issue string. Gary Is there any way that you can explain that to us in a brief way? Karin There are two schools of thought. a trauma string.
the karate chop also does something similar to the gamut point. Sandy Radomski’s . With the EFT shortcut the Gamut point has pretty much been dropped. you’ve done all your basic EFT or MTT or matrix. feeling and field. I was just 3 years old. Bringing the gamut point back. the feelings and the field and then you go into gratefulness. You just tap on the gamut point and just talk. in your brain. in your matrix. I used to think this and now I think that”. your heart map. So the facts part is “When I ran into the kitchen with my hands all covered with mud I was upset but I didn’t realise. And then you go onto feelings “and that made me feel that I couldn’t show my feelings in public” but now I realise that it was just something I learned when I was 3”. I deeply and completely accept myself ” so that is not exactly the same thing as using the Gamut point while looking for the negative event. until you get rid of the personal occurrence with the learned perception. I didn’t realise that Mom just wanted me to not drag mud into the house. whether it is in your cells. that using it completely and totally dissolves that. By doing that you are guaranteed to get rid of this gene histone. facts. So you tap on the gamut point and talk about the facts. And the Gamut point is the thing and there have been studies on this. The bottom line is that at the end of every session. So it’s like a gamut review.Now we can get into long conversations about Gary Craig’s table and the trees and things like that. in your energy field. But karate chop is usually used with the set up statement “even though this is happening. without the proof which we can go into later. so luckily if we use the karate chop when doing the short cut you get a lot of it.Tap and Receive. Tappas Flemings’s . Which by the way also helps with the Apex Effect. I have a series of things to say while you do it as 3 minutes is a long time. However. You are pretty much bringing in everything that you ever learnt. If you do the gamut point while you talk essentially at the end of the clearing. Usually EFT Masters will do the 9 Gamut when they hit a block or something kind of negative. you’ve done all you are supposed to do as a practitioner or doing self-help. in your mind. (Meta Medicine calls it the original bio-conflict shock) or specific event – until we get rid of that it can actually come back somehow. So where do you find the words – from everything you’ve learned – Reiki. you’ve tested all the aspects. 59 . you are pretty much guaranteed to have gotten it and as one of my clients calls it “3 minutes of insurance. and also what if it’s anchored to another trauma or issue string? But let’s just say about the Gamut point. but otherwise the gamut point is pretty much dropped. or there’s some emotional things that you can’t get over. Then you do 3 minutes on the Gamut point.I’m grateful. I think I’ll do that”. So I used to think this and now I don’t think that. especially at the end of the session is very important. What does that mean? Well I have what I call the 3 F’s. hypnotherapy statements. Beta Healings Thanking the World.
my echoes”. gene histone if you think in cells.. You just feel that wonderful grateful feeling of this being one and everything.So you keep going over the feelings “I was feeling this and now I’m feeling this”. my beliefs. And what she said was “An additional sense of peace – you could hear people go ‘phew’” – what I call a secondary release. and if you want to go into heart map. And Tappas Fleming’s “I thank all those involved including myself and God and the Universe and whatever else for helping me do this and so on” because you’ve got to fill 3 minutes.. and encompassing you like a cocoon and making you feel good and all this wonderfulness and hopefully by this time you’ve done 3 minutes! You’re really just making it up. “I was feeling this at a 10 and now I’m feeling this at a zero and I used to think that . It’s almost like somebody loving a sunset or it’s just that very gentle kind of love and peace and it’s so overwhelming that you tear up. if you want to.you say she took a deep breath and released in that way.in heart map you relax and feel the field coming out of your body and encompassing you and going out through your heart – and if you want to know about all that you can see it at heartmap. I often use heart map where you take your non-dominant hand and put it over your heart chakra and take the other hand and push on the gamut point . And the field is when you get into really encompassing what happened “I understand that I am healed throughout all my history.com. Pat Carrington test all this because I wanted someone who wasn’t involved in finding all this out and just said to her just try this out and tell me what you see. being wonderful and whatever you want to make up. bring in Matrix Reimprinting.. So it took a good 5 minutes (I guess it’s not long in the scheme of things) before I saw her do the secondary release because she was really upset – she was in the advanced stages of cancer – it was really devastating for her and it took quite a long time on the gamut point before I saw a secondary release. I have 3 really good examples of this. I wait for that secondary release and sometimes it happens in one minute and sometimes in 3 and a half minutes.. “I am grateful and am released now”.some people cry – just tears of release – it’s not the same kind of crying – it’s not huge emotional crying – a person’s eyes well up with water. Gary How did you know that that release was there.. One is a woman who had cancer and after having MTT she was cancer free and it was retriggered and she really thought she was going to die again. I had Dr. and that’s 60 . my ancestral line.”.. I have a video of that which I am hoping to release so that people can actually see that. Is that very common then? Karin Oh yes. on cellular levels” and I’m really just making this up “my energy field.. my core beliefs.
so that you can find the original event. I suppose hitting the Gamut for 3 minutes really is “Whacking the Warmer”! Gary So you are saying that to use the Gamut point is really important then? Karin As a clearing at the end. as an insurance I think it’s a wonderful thing. that does this but if you just sit and whack on the Gamut point the client doesn’t feel any release. You know – what you do when you are a practitioner – so I just have 61 . It’s better to do the other points so at least they feel the release of various emotions and you can test aspects and go through traditional EFT or MTT and the basics. while they talk to me. If they are talking to you and you are setting up the next event or you are talking about what happened last week and how that made them feel. which is different than in many years of practice.what you see. Now remember you can only do this after they are already cleared. rub on a spot of their choice. I’ve tried it 2 times so far!” Tania looked at her as if to say “What?!” And I’m thinking “What is she talking about?” and then it dawned on me. Because you never know what you are clearing. is that I used to have my clients. It’s not a magic pill – just tap a point and everything is gone. while they are talking to me. and when everything is done then you do the Gamut point for 3 minutes. (laughing) one of my students – she’s about 20 years old and she wanted to make a point – so she walked up to Tania and I and said “That whack the warmer thing is a great deal. then that’s a huge release. Another thing which I started doing. Gary And that’s the triple warmer isn’t it in Chinese Medicine? Karin Yes Gary You were saying about whacking the warmer. weren’t you? Karin Yes. they don’t feel the emotions change until things go. and some people pick the collar bone point and what’s easy to do is to rub the inside of the nail bed on their thumb. and Karate chop to a certain extent. Other times when it is something quite devastating like someone thinking they are going to die. Now remember that it is the Gamut point.
Even if it’s in the matrix. Now to a very lesser extent the fingers. That would be crazy. I’m going to call it the gene histone. it’s not about a special point. Especially women. So we have special points that work for us. the article was written by someone who is not really a scientist but he goes “they are tapping over 1700 times so let’s find out what happens with my students”. Well. This is not exactly a special point. so I will do 2 or 3 hours with them and they are not going to rub on the same point the entire time. the forefinger. So I’m giving them four. which I need to tap on. my road rage. clients like to have a choice. Because both the Gamut Point and the Karate chop are both points which are very important in this and so why not work on it that way? Gary Why not work on it when you have that opportunity to do that? So work on the warmer? Karin Yes. the special point is about the training in EFT and TFT that you find a special point that is more comforting to you. For a lot of people it’s the collar bone point. Another one is when I’m driving. and the thumb and the forefinger are important in this and for lack of another word. And so rubbing the thumb. 62 . I give them a choice of these 4 points while they are talking to me because I know that they work directly on the gene histone. and some people naturally seem to go towards one point. Gary And so does that mean that they can find a special point which suits them? Karin No. It’s always better to give people choices. the karate chop point or tapping on the gamut point while someone is talking to you is important. And you know. I have a couple of points – when reading emails which are upsetting to me and another one is when I’m on the phone. Gary How did you find out that the Gamut point was so important in the work? Karin There was an interesting article I came across which was about “EFT can be undone” and without going into a long detail about that. men I find like the head. work on the warmer. I have clients who come for 45 minutes to an hour and others who drive from very far away. they’d leave with bruises so we move around.them tap or rub one of the points while we are talking. I have switched that now to the Gamut point. Which one of these do you like? And you can switch through. It really works directly on this gene histone.
the natural thing to think is that somebody didn’t take care of the aspects. And then there was the woman Peggy who I told you about before who had cancer and had been told that she would die within 3 months. What if someone did take care of the aspects. and it was completely gone at the end of that. and 3 years later she’s in a workshop and she was thinking of the fear of dying and watching a session which reminded her of her own situation and everything came back stronger than before. If it’s not completely cleared. and usually stronger than before.combined with what first gave them the problem. And it was proven by these 3 people because they just tapped on the Gamut point for 3 minutes while going over the event that they were working on. she had a combination of menopause and medication and she had been using EFT for 10 years and been a practitioner for 6 years. was saying that they were constantly reliving this problem – fears of death. Gary So the connection was there? 63 . Another woman. So they are constantly blowing up and undoing the EFT that he was doing and he couldn’t put his finger on what was happening as he has been doing this with veterans for 7 years. And I was thinking that that wasn’t going to be possible. so we were able to show that this does happen. and had had EFT which cleared it. Now how often when you are 4 years old and you are thinking that this trauma happened. who works with war veterans. then what is this? So. what he found is this gene histone. and it doesn’t if you tap on the gamut point for 3 minutes at the end of a clearing. and this woman who was an EFT practitioner. and with Grant there was somebody who had been in a raft and they were going over rapids that were too high for their skill level. So what I am saying is that to all these people this was happening. So after finding this out.Well. There were 3 people in the audience. Dr Webb. So she’s driving and the hormone medication kicks in while she’s thinking of the event and the hormone medication makes the lines on the road come together in front of her so she thinks she’s gonna die and suddenly all of her issues start coming back. and you are thinking of this specific event when your father slapped you in the kitchen at the same exact time that you are afraid of dying. I thought how many times that the 2 things that you are supposed to feel to make EFT become undone is thinking you are going to die. if someone is completely and totally cleared of something and it comes back. she was thinking about this event and was specific. so she’s cleared everything . while remembering the specific event that caused the thing in the first place. and if you are just clearing issues and it can pop back up.
But for the average practitioner that’s not the case and certainly when I was teaching the Certified Energy Coach Program the people I was teaching said that when they didn’t use the 9 Gamut they didn’t resolve the stuff and they needed to put it back. when we’re not doing anything else. what the origin of the limiting belief is. hear and feel and not being sophisticated to the art of delivery of a master. Now if you decontaminate we what one sees without addressing what one hears and feels during a trauma. The human mind is like a computer and it’s how the computer address is stored if you will. In fact. The bottom line is just to do your regular meridian therapy as you’ve always done. what the origin of the obstacle or blockage is. and I really like the work of Steve Wells and David Lake who talk about tapping even when you are on the toilet. So it’s not just going over rapids while thinking that it can come back.Karin The connection was there. so we need to put it back in as it does root those out. That’s what we were finding and I personally believe that we’ve thrown the baby out with the bath water. and using it for as long as he has and being a very savvy practitioner. If we tap on the 9 gamut we are going to start getting into those issues that 64 . Now we talk to Maryam Webster Maryam Webster Gary said in 2003 that we no longer needed to use the Gamut point. Another reason – because we encode in our brains information of what we feel. and can use the 9 gamut and get to the core of the problem. and here’s why: We don’t have the mastery of Gary Craig at public level – I hope that EFT makes it into kindergartens all over the world and by the time those children are older they are going to be that master. and we need to put the 9 Gamut back in. and so we need that 9 Gamut because we have no idea what the origin of the trauma is. but right now we don’t have that mastery. then you are going to have those tail enders that go on for ever. There are 3 different locks in our brains. When we use the 9 Gamut. what we see and what we hear. that addresses what we see. The reason in the first place for using the gamut point was to root out deep seated trauma and the core causes of issues and Gary was getting these one minute miracles without using it. he is going to bring in so many different resources to get those one minute miracles and the average practitioner simply does not have that art that Gary has after originating a therapy as he did. Because of the calibre of Gary. if we are constantly tapping during the day and whenever we can. we don’t have to have that. but after all the aspects have gone just simply have your client or yourself focus on the issue while tapping on the gamut point for at least 3 minutes.
Gary It is interesting when sometimes if you move your eyes around you get a stickiness in one position. and Darnelium invented a wonderful grid called IFT919 when it was first out there.so referring to the brain as a computer how the brain connects to that address in memory. Gary There is a theory isn’t there that if you have your eyes in a certain position it can relate to where you were looking when you first experienced a trauma? Maryam That’s correct. and trained to deal with is going to find. it can go out for several days. Gary And you can do personal peace procedure and all that can’t you? Maryam Absolutely.we don’t even know exist. 65 . what we were hearing and how we felt. And so as we go through our day and using the 9 Gamut now and then. it creates by where we were looking. that tiny little flicker. who has trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming trained to look for. And you go “Wow!” when you pull it out. that’s something that someone like Gary. tiny. but if you bother to take it out and look at it. A tiny. Maryam And that stickiness is a place where a hidden memory exists and what we find is (I am someone who develops procedures. And it’s going to start rooting them out even without us knowing that it’s going on. And there are 81 different places and 9 x 9 grids of all the possible places you were looking when you had the trauma . develops energy therapy and other processes to deal with different issues) and what my colleagues and I have found is that if you go to one of those moments. For instance when doing time line work. but most of us out in the world are not so trained. can spool out into a 2 hour movie of what happened. So again. It’s going to start erasing the writing on our walls. that blip on the radar. little flicker in someone’s eye. Every day. So simply doing that 9 gamut procedure is going to get to the core issue without the need for that training. it’s going to start whittling down as Gary says – the legs on that table. like in a hard drive.
but I think what is important here is that we are not all Gary Craig. anyone can see that quite easily. you just need to practice and the more and different client types you practice with the more you are going to learn and the better a master you are going to be.that person is a master”. Gary Do you think that we can reach that kind of mastery with experience and time? Maryam Abosolutely. it’s microseconds in picking up on that cue. EFT is built on the framework of NLP and TFT. So it’s obvious when someone is embarrassed and they blush quite easily. But a master of NLP can see 20 different shadings that you and I looking at that face would see no colour difference whatsoever. I have extensive training in that background and have been at it 30 years and there are still things that I am learning today that I go “Wow – I know that there is so much more I need to know”. but what it is important to know about the videos. it comes out. I mean I’m a psychologist. And one of the things that NLP looks at is facial colouring. so both of those disciplines blended together. That’s mastery. And Gary is such a fine tuned instrument at the level of mastery that he has. he has come to that point. monkey do. you don’t need to be a therapist to begin with. And Gary has said “I am still learning”. Maryam Right. But we can all get to that same level of mastery with practice – you don’t need to have special training. 66 . that he can pick up on these cues. and an instant turnabout in how he’s doing the clearing for that individual that just flows. it happens in microseconds and you and I will never see it. and some people may look at Gary Craig or see someone experienced doing EFT in a certain way. That’s within the view of everybody. probably without even realising it himself. So what we think we are seeing on those videos is not the whole picture. But someone else looking at me is going to say “Wow . And he can pick up what even the most advanced video equipment can’t. and then look at the videos and do a monkey see. and Gary has said this many times. He’s got that unconscious mastery. And it’s that kind of thing that Gary is looking for when he is working on stage with someone. We need to kind of grow into that. and just think that they can leap to do that in a sense.Gary We hope to go into depth about Neuro Linguistic Programming and other things on another event to get more details.
What is the argument for keeping the 9 Gamut Procedure? 67 . It’s like Alcoholics Anonymous saying keep coming back. Why is the 9 Gamut Procedure not used any more by some practitioners? 2. Gary So just keep tapping. And the more you tap the better it works.Gary So you need the right kind of training then? Maryam Not the right kind of training necessarily but the right kind of practise. So training on the DVD’s for instance is going to be adequate for learning EFT. Gary So having that interaction? Maryam At an energy level. Part 4 1. You certainly can. it works. keep practising EFT it works. but where that level of mastery comes in is practise again and again and again over many. Maryam Yeah and tap with as many different kinds of people as you possibly can because the interaction of your energy field with their energy field is going to teach you more things than somebody talking to you. But that’s not to say that the person who just learnt EFT yesterday can’t get a good result. many years. yes. or reading or watching a video can teach you. Hear are some questions to help you remember some of what has been shared with you in the material from part four of the workbook.
and also create a belief about how safe the world is. For some it’s a straight matter of OK. I was walking in my small town and bumped into someone I had been working with on 68 . Gary So does that mean that it’s very important how you show up with a client say? Alina Absolutely. especially when you’re talking about subtle energy systems. For me. Alina There are many ways of using EFT and how we see EFT working in the body. but there are lots of different ways that healing can happen between two people or with yourself. and that can take place in many different ways and I just happen to like a simple effective method called EFT. the meridians and auric fields and all of that. miracles can happen and they do. so I am engaging in this energy system or the meridian system. Whether that’s prayer or getting a pill or getting a placebo or something of that nature. when we are engaging our thoughts. and also what happens in the mind or body when we are under stress. That’s why you can get great effects by not even tapping. or suffering some kind of trauma and how EFT disempowers memories to free us of negative emotions. It’s more sensitive to intention than anything else. Time after time after time research suggests that it’s really about intention. I like to see it as a ritual that we are using when we are using focused intention. and the first step is definitely bringing attention to the problem and doing some kind of ritual. especially as the apex problem does show up quite a bit. You need to get your ego out of the way.Part Five Working with EFT and the importance of testing our work. You don’t have to be physically tapping to get great results. Tania Prince talks about testing your work to make sure that a client is getting beyond their issue. our intention when we see that we are assisting the body in repairing itself. and using all the sensory information to actually work with that to test results and to look for core issues. Judy Byrne will be talking about working with early memories and how we can create memories in the future. the chakras. Alina Frank talking about EFT being a form of focused intention and ritual and gives us tips on working with others and getting yourself out of the way. Of course. It’s the intention behind it.
And or course in my mind I was thinking that it had to do with the work that we did with EFT. and that enables you to connect with something higher. I’m not getting in my way and that’s when all kinds of magic happens. as Gary keeps saying. Don’t have any toys. but you’ve got to get yourself out of the way. and you get a certain hit or a certain word. So go in with the intention that one way or the other this person is going to come to you for a reason to connect and that you are fully present in the moment. don’t have messy laundry. I have these invisible rules that guide my practice and we all live by this set of rules and belief sets. even if it’s just with a referral. or you hear just a slight change in their tone of voice that makes you think – Aha. Don’t have personal pictures. what you are able to do? 69 . and it will lead you down certain paths that you previously hadn’t seen. I know that that’s assisting them. in an email and from some people I just get one sentence and from others I get like a lot more.smoking. if I have this thing going on in my life and it’s not working. Anyway to cut a long story short. And if you have a portion of your apartment and it’s just a corner. don’t have personal clutter and just clean it up and you are assigning that space as a sacred healing space. but again work is happening through me and not by me. they are welcome to send me information ahead of time in a document. the first thing is to set the intention that you’re gonna be helping this person. In my practice once someone has set an appointment with me. and that’s when EFT works through you and not by you. and that’s when you really do get insights. what could possibly be at the core of it?” It starts them to think along those lines and that’s really what I use it for. and I asked her “how’s it going with the smoking?” and she said “I’m not smoking any more” and she proceeded to rattle off all these reasons why she wasn’t smoking any more. And some of the ways that you can do that and assist yourself is that you create a space that is only for EFT or only for working with clients. one way or the other. get your ego out of the way. Gary Is it something that you grow into. In fact I have this kind of rule set that I have in my practice. I just kind of skim the document but I allow enough space. That starts them thinking along the lines of “OK. that’s the direction I want to go in. a whole auto-biography. even if it turns out that I can’t work with them for whatever reason. I actually had the other day a 53 page document which was a whole dissertation. and in my practice I know that every person that comes to me is going to be helped in one way or another. that’s fine.
... But first you’ve got to get the foundation down. and that is how it is with EFT. it’s just that you haven’t picked all the pieces apart yet.. d... and the distance for breaking and all of these things that you were very very focused on when first learning to drive.. Because you can get completely lost in how this practitioner does it or the way that I do it sessions. You are unscrambling some mess and that’s all good..... You knew to look in your rear view mirror every minute or two. you’re not really focusing.. it’s important to tell your client and people that you work with that if anything shows up after you’ve completed your session. No.Alina Oh sure.. just take the first 50 sessions just straight by the book. Your right brain has taken over the whole process of doing a. You learn it and then it becomes automatic and then you know what to do.. In your driving you’re working out problems.. I’ve heard some people say that that’s terrible. (emotion) and .. When you were driving initially when you learnt how to drive. do it completely rote.. your subconscious mind has learned the process enough and that allows you to take off and use your right brain for creative thinking... Gary So is it always important to test your work after you’ve been working with other people? Alina Not only is it important to test your work.. and now you get in the car and you get from point A to point B and you really don’t even know how you got there.. Gary So you become unconsciously competent? Alina Exactly.(incident) I deeply and completely accept myself and this emotion at all the points and that will give you a foundation and a platform to jump off at onto the next level of proficiency in this. So things are worked out when you are driving when you reach that zone. b.. the basic recipe “even though I feel . or to make sure that you had your indicator light on..... but at first what I want for you is to get successful and comfortable in the process.... I tell my students that the first 50 sessions that you do with other people... and then you can sort of throw the rules out. When I see people that work on themselves 70 .. it’s not that EFT didn’t work. It’s like driving car. It not only happens if you do it over and over again... you were hyper sensitive to everything going on around you in the environment. you are thinking about the future. c.
they just assume that it’s just EFT not working and they quit. Gary So it varies then. I know that it’s more than likely a shifting aspect that we need to clarify. this will absolutely give you confirmation that you’ve done enough work or just let you know that you are not done yet. Those are so important because something else may show up. 71 . over childhood I would say. we need to figure out what that is. So testing. doesn’t he to test the results. also telling the story. then I will have the client take a snapshot picture in their minds of what that child was like at age 2 and how do you feel about witnessing that child at age 2? Yourself at age 2 and now go to age 3. Having them jot down notes. You might think that you are done and suddenly – oh yes and that little aspect is popping up. and I’m not feeling that this is complete. I know that Gary Craig does that. is a great way. But there are many ways to test after a session. if someone was very emotional before when telling the story and now they have no charge. according to what the issue is? Alina It does vary and another way of testing is just to have them close their eyes and tune into the event and make the sounds louder. Being the person that attacked them verbally or emotionally and saying the words that the mother or father said to them in that tone of voice. In fact at this point. and the smells more distinct and all of those things that Gary talks about repeatedly. So it’s important to lay that preframe before you finish a session. they tend not to realise that. So for your public speaking.and have never had guidance from a practitioner. trying to poke them if you like with whatever that was. When I work with couples on sexual issues I’m not going to stand there in their bedroom taking notes! So they are just going to have to come back to me and say well yeah I felt more comfortable in this area but not so much in that. and if you can at all be in the real live re-enactment of what it is that you have been working on. actually going through that process and being with that person or having them go to Toastmasters or one of those organisations and try to have them speak up and see what happens.if we are working on a period of time that was extensive. Alina Another way that I like to test . after I’ve done a round or two with a client and they haven’t shifted. How do you feel about your child at age 3 and how do you feel about yourself at age 4? Sometimes I’ll have them look at an old photo album and see how they feel now versus how they were feeling before.
is to write that down. And sometimes people aren’t aware that these are going on especially when they are working by themselves. work with me. I have had many clients come back and say that now I am doing x. Every conversation has just been pain and anger and hostility and suddenly you stop at the mailbox one 72 . and then on to the next one. and that’s where my mind is going. and suddenly when you are mid way into the tapping. then that’s a shifting aspect and one of the ways to keep track of these so that you don’t get lost when you are working by yourself. So let’s say you are tapping on being locked in a closet – your father locked you in a closet when you were 6 years old. That will happen and you won’t even know what it’s related to so you are working on all the anger that you’ve had at your father for all the abuse that you had as a child. y. or sometimes right away. z. we really need to test our work don’t we. It could be a different part of that event. work with me!”. Or it could be a different event altogether. So it’s important to tell your clients that you might not be completely done until you actually test it out in the real world. but really need to test it in the real world don’t we? Alina Yes. just like the generalisation effect can take place at collapsing issues.Gary You mentioned shifting aspects earlier. Test that you are not feeling sad or fearful any more. let’s say you are working on one thing and you feel that the whole forest of issues is gone. Or it could be a different emotion. Gary So that’s shifting aspects but as you were saying earlier. as you are at the karate chop point. Some people will be surprised at how. You were tapping on the feeling of being in that closet and the fear or the sadness. It’s like a neon sign “here. you are so annoyed with your neighbour. can you explain a bit more about that? Alina The issue will collapse far enough that some other part of the problem will creep in and sort of overtake the original one that you started with. And then your neighbour who has always bucked the crap out of you. Write down that it changed from sadness to rage – make yourself a note – and then go ahead and finish tapping on what you are in the middle of. so if you were tapping on fear and sadness and suddenly you are full of rage. I see that’s there’s still something left. you think what I’m really feeling is that he spanked me before I went in.
Gary I know that when you are working with friends if you are just starting they are quite helpful and they may just say that they are a zero? Alina Yeah (laughing) that’s right. Gary Could we test the results of the results as it were using what I think is called a VOC Scale – validity of cognition. it’s important to test otherwise you may push yourself into a situation beyond what you were ready for. But it is absolutely connected to the work on clearing your emotional distress around other people that can pervade so many other areas in your life. And I said to her that it’s hard to be a prophet in your own kingdom.day and you find that that is completely gone. so it’s important to test and take one step at a time. I have had clients who for whatever reason have taken a while to integrate the work and if they have come down to a 2 I will just say go back and revisit this tomorrow and tell me what you think about it tomorrow or right yourself a note to give me some feedback next time we meet. And you can’t even fathom where that came from. Or the opposite could be true. So sometimes it is good to go outside your circle of friends as they will sometimes value what you do more than the people closest to you. It’s just wonderful. So sometimes it’s just a matter of integration – especially if you are at a 2 or a 1. I have a friend who is doing some work that no one is really acknowledging here where we live. However. I’m just thinking of clients who had fear of water and they set themselves up for a 10 day white water rafting trip – something like that. As an EFT practitioner I know to expect these sorts of things. Gary I know when we are starting out we kind of think we’ve got to get down to a zero on everything and sometimes we get down to the zero and think we’ll just leave it at that? Is that dangerous then if we don’t test that everything’s gone as it were? Alina Yes. And I can’t think of one instance where they didn’t come back next day and say it was completely gone. I think it’s called? Could we use that to make sure that the result is what it is? 73 . who only see you in a particular role. Whatever was interfering in the ability for you to connect with this person is completely gone.
... Gary And of course if they are kind of silent after that.. like you might fall into a place where you might say “Are you ok now?” which would be kind of ridiculous. yes? We continue the conversation with Tania Prince Tania Yes (laughing). One of the ways that I like to use is core issues at the end of a session.. Gary I know that in trauma with war victims especially. Is it 100% true..Alina Sure. tap one more round on “even though it may not be safe to let this go... 74 . you will find that the event will often fade. No if you are dealing with a specific event ask if there are any smells associated with that.... you know that there is still more to do? Alina Uh-huh or they could just be so thrilled they are speechless.. 10% true. it tends to be still affecting them. big and bright... any sounds. say that aloud repeat after me “I don’t deserve love” and then I will say “how true is that for you?”... any tastes. I have my client repeat that “I don’t deserve to be loved” and I’ll ask “ is that really true?”... Gary So it’s not just like asking one question. any feelings when you think about that? And can you see that clearly? Because when people look at a specific event and it has been cleared it usually does not look the same as when they started working on it. (laughing) Now we talk to Tania Prince You have to test your work really Gary and you have to do that in depth and thoroughly. Now if that event is still there in their face.. I love using that because I really get a gauge on how well we’ve collapsed most of it. they say that they can smell very strongly the smells that were there when they were traumatised.”.. So when it’s kind of still there and they can still clearly see it. they might not have emotion.
Gary Is there anything we can look out for? Even in the words I am using there I am saying “look” aren’t I. I work right across the board on anything. I make sure all of these systems are cleared out. Also if I am testing things at the end of a session I’ll say what do you need to do to know that this problem is gone? Gary Because we often fall into looking at the feelings don’t we. tastes.Tania So you need to go through all the sensory information that they may be holding inside to make sure that none of that is there. Gary Are people different when working with them in a sense? Are some more geared to working in a visual way and others in a sound way. Gary Any other things we need to look out for? Tania I do a lot of work visually with people when we need to find things that people need to work on. smells. and if they have some really big bright memories that usually means something. whether they have visual associated with it. So you adapt to the person you are working with. sounds. they work differently and you need to work with how they are processing and how they store that. so I am using a visual way of thinking about it. how does that work? Tania I think people are different. as there should be nothing attached to the problem. 75 . even if they haven’t got feelings associated with that. that’s where we often go? “How is that feeling now?” Tania Yes.
how safe we think the world is. sounds associated with the issue. And the amygdala which is attached to the hippocampus and triggers survival responses in the body. or after prolonged stress. Gary That’s a vast area of education isn’t it? Maybe we can cover that at some point. actually have physical changes to their bodies. we’re talking about really big post traumatic stress level of trauma. which I tend to think of as every day trauma and we all experience this. that we start to form impressions of whether we are ok. One of the things I think it is really good for is working with memories. whether they have visuals associated with it. People give so much information about themselves. tastes. you wouldn’t like processing visually would you Gary? Laughing. working with everything from what we called the really small t trauma. it’s almost like it’s a flash drive that’s been smashed by a hammer. on what EFT is really good for and the results you can get with the process. even in the language they are using it kind of reflects how they see their own world. all the way through to post traumatic stress disorder. the original part of the brain which does the initial memory processing actually shrinks in post traumatic stress. But there are some basic things you can do to see that this person is getting beyond their problem? Tania Certainly. I think EFT works very well at disempowering those memories. smells. is very valuable information. And it happens physiologically as well as psychologically. Things that happen along the way continue to modify our view of ourselves and how safe the world is. So it’s bigger and more prone to being constantly triggered as a survival response. actually becomes bigger with trauma. understanding how they process. The hippocampus. It is related to things that happen in our interactions with parents and others who are around us when we are small. We know that people who have suffered really severe trauma or prolonged trauma. More now from Judy Byrne. but particularly parents. And of course the early ones determine who we think we are. whether we’re good enough and so on. 76 . it is physically vulnerable. how they think about the problem. And if it’s really serious.Tania Yes.
So it’s great that EFT gives us a way of disempowering memories. the sort of thing that would qualify somebody with post traumatic stress disorder. Gary So that’s sort of a more advanced approach to EFT then? 77 . I think when you are working with really big trauma . Because you need ways of keeping a person safe while doing it.So our bodies and our view of ourselves and our whole approach to the world is very memory influenced. So that it just becomes something that we remember in a neutral way. It’s not just the emotion that we have when we bring a memory to our conscious attention. and doing it in a way which is the least traumatising to the client as I have ever come across. or maybe not quite. and working with the whole person and not just EFTing the trauma memory. So you need experience and I think some background to do that. Gary Are you saying that EFT can work equally as well with those larger traumas as with the smaller traumas. I think that EFT is a brilliant tool but you need a whole way of working. Certainly not as easily. Very often we are being driven by unconscious memories as well. more gently and more skillfully than with the relatively small stuff. a therapeutic way of working that goes beyond just knowing how to use the tool of EFT. and I think we said before that you need really some experience in that area to be effective? Judy I think that if you are working with somebody with really big trauma. If you are working at that end. as well as the other things that happen in our lives? Judy Well I think that it is a very good way not of getting rid of the memory but getting rid of the emotion that is attached to the memory. Gary Right. but you could still be badly traumatised.you have to work more slowly. as the psychiatric classifications are quite strict and have conditions which you might not necessarily meet. Consciously and unconsciously.
Gary You say that’s available at your website? Judy Yes it is. I have several on working with memories but that one is on really traumatic memories. 78 . including tapping. because you are dealing with big stuff. You are potentially dealing with dynamite when people start bringing up really traumatic stuff. and I talk there about a four stage plan of therapy and about the sorts of things that you need to put in place in order to make the tapping safe before you start. but it is not for people who have just learnt tapping and don’t have quite a bit of experience to take that into. So it does present a model of therapy. I have actually recorded a number of DVD’s about working with memories and the most recent one of them is specially about traumatic memories. Gary But we are capable of doing most things with the technique? Judy Oh the technique can go anywhere. It is just having somewhere to take it in terms of having some kind of a model. and how you might pick up again afterwards as well.Judy And an approach which is more suited to people who have a lot of experience in doing therapy one way or another and who take the trouble to educate themselves about it as well. and safe to do.
3. and getting yourself out of the way is so important? 4. When starting out with EFT. What is meant by the different methods of processing that people have. Why do you think that intention and being fully present with a client. especially people who are working with EFT on themselves. What is meant by being unconsciously competent and how would you get to that point? 79 . Why do some people. where is it important not to go and why? 5.Hear are some questions to help you remember some of what has been shared with you in the material from part five of the workbook. Part 5 1. and why is it so valuable to know about yourself or a client when doing EFT? 6. Talk about the different ways of testing the results of your work with EFT. stop doing EFT as they think that it is not working? 2.
