When nothing else works… Tap on it!
A woman has such a strong phobia of flying that she can barely even drive to the airport to pick up a friend. Her body is wracked with nausea when she thinks about taking a plane trip. Nothing has worked to help her. With the guidance of a coach she “taps” on her phobia and now she can fly on an airplane without fear and anxiety. A man has migraine headaches on a regular basis and nothing ever seems to help them. With the guidance of a practitioner, he “taps” on the headaches and they appear less frequently and with much less intensity than before. He “taps” some more on his own, and the painful migraine headaches eventually disappear, never to return. A woman constantly feels guilty about not making weekly visits to her parents’ house, (“You never come to see us anymore”) even though visiting requires hauling her four children over there and disrupting her family’s weekend schedule. She “taps” on her guilt and then decides that her parents can make the effort to drive the 10 minutes over to her house once in a while. Her guilt is gone.

Emotional Freedom and The Science of Getting Rich

A child has recurring nightmares about monsters coming out of his bedroom closet at night. With his mother’s help, he “taps” on the nightmares, which do not return. In their place he has nice dreams. What do these people have in common? They have all discovered that when they are stuck with a problem that won’t go away, and nothing else has worked to solve it, they can “tap” on that problem with the Emotional Freedom Techniques, and that “problem” will become nothing more than a powerless memory. This is the world of EFT, and this new world is waiting for YOU.

EFT = The Missing Tools!
Imagine that you live in a house where everything is broken, and you don’t have any tools to make the repairs — not even a wrench. You know what is wrong in the house, but you just can’t fix it. You probably don’t enjoy living in that house very much -- it feels like a dump. Then a friend drops off some tools from the hardware store—hammers, screwdrivers, wrenches, etc.— and he shows you how to use them. Now you can repair the house and enjoy living in it much more! YOU are like that house, parts of your life don’t seem to be working the way you want them to. You may have physical, psychological, emotional, or even spiritual issues that you wish you could resolve. But try as you might, you don’t always seem to have the right tools to fix your life. Now, imagine, for a minute, that each one of your so-called “problems” is actually the result of a simple disruption in your body’s natural healing system. Your body and mind would heal themselves if only you could remove those disruptions… All you need are the right tools to remove those disruptions to your system.

EFT provides the tools you need to remove the disruptions in your body’s natural healing systems!

she had not been able to see the accident over the crest of the hill.com . Kathy had come to a seminar on “EFT for Weight Loss” and had made some good progress during the day. This particular phobia didn't appear to hamper her life tremendously. These patterns can exert control over that individual for the rest of her life unless the “short circuit” is corrected with EFT. She had come over the hill and had run into a multi-car pileup that had started several cars ahead of her on the freeway. This phobia caused her to feel fearful and tense whenever she had to drive on this overpass or similar ones. but it was a nuisance to feel so controlled by a simple fear of driving on one stretch of the highway. And when she came over the top of the hill at about 50 mph. The accident had begun with only two cars. She explained to me that she had been in a very bad accident on a similar highway overpass about two decades earlier. she asked if I could help her with a phobia relating to driving over a particular highway overpass in Houston. and she remained prisoner to her emotional and physiological reactions. resulting in a multi-car collision. Kathy even knew the source of this fear. but knowing it didn’t make the fear go away. The previous accident had not been her fault in any way. but because the overpass went up steeply on the front side. Consciously.Emotional Freedom and The Science of Getting Rich A “DRIVING ON AN OVERPASS” PHOBIA This next case study shows how one short event lasting only a few minutes can create patterns in a person’s energy system.joyfulmission.

especially very steep ones where the far side is not visible. She had so much fear that she would simply drive far out of her way to find a different route to where she needed to go. which she put at about an 8 or 9 on a scale of 1 to 10. but some people in another car had been killed. Before each round I would ask for a rating of 1 to 10 on that particular aspect. I asked her where in her body she felt the tension when she had to drive on these kinds of overpasses. to a 5 or 6.joyfulmission. driving over similar overpasses. and then we tapped on her most obvious physical symptoms with the following Set Ups: “Even though I’m afraid to drive on the 610 overpass at I-10.” and.

(This session lasted about 45 minutes. “Even though I have this tension in my chest and stomach when I think about driving on that overpass…” After each round of tapping I asked her to imagine driving over that part of the road and to rate her anxiety. A couple rounds with these Set Ups had brought her anxiety down a little bit. and her mother came to get her. Since that time. She was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. continued to scare her. If she could resolve this phobia she might save herself considerable time in getting through downtown.Emotional Freedom and The Science of Getting Rich She was not seriously injured in the wreck. I deeply and completely accept myself. At that point I felt that we should move directly to the most obvious aspects of the anchoring event. Kathy felt more than normal caution about such areas. She said her stomach and chest would feel tight and compressed—knotted up. then we would tap a round and re-assess with a new 17 Joyful Mission !2008 Karen Curry www. and go through each of those aspects one at a time.com .

” “Even though I wrecked my car…” “Even though I still see the dead bodies from the other cars…” After clearing a few of these aspects of the accident. if an aspect still carried a negative feeling rated at 2 or 3 or whatever.

We started with the following Set Ups: “Even though I ran into another car. but. we would continue to repeat the same Set Up until we got that aspect down to a zero.

But she told me that one other aspect probably continued to bother her more than the actual wreck and its associated traumas. I won’t include all of the repetitions below.. “Even though I feel responsible for my mother’s fear at the hospital…” and “Even though I made my mother sick with grief for several hours while she though I might be dead…” It was during this last set of rounds that Kathy began to feel even better.com .” “Even though I can still hear the crunching of the metal. just the main Set Up phrases..

On the other hand. she would have to do that on her own by actually driving on that stretch of the freeway. GOUT IN BOTH FEET This next case study demonstrates the power of EFT to help a purely “physical” problem. In this case the word “cleared” refers to the fact that the negative emotion or negative reaction has dissipated from the situation. she had felt considerable fear and the tightness in her chest and stomach just from thinking about driving on that road. she could not call up any fear. And her symptoms might return. or perhaps a certain color of car in front of her might cause her to remember more about that day in her youth. what is really at the root of our pain. So we did a couple of rounds on: “Even though I’m afraid it might happen again…” and “Even though I might have another accident like the one before…” At this point Kathy felt completely clear of this phobia. She said she had maybe a little anxiety. of a problem have been “cleared” with tapping. maybe a 1 or 2 on the scale we had been imagining. I tested her new confidence by having her imagine coming over the crest of the hill and seeing an accident on the road below her. She felt sure that she could confidently tackle that part of the highway. it was very possible that she might never feel those particular symptoms in that situation ever again. or root causes. Perhaps the particular time of day would trigger memories of her previous accident. We were not able to test her at that moment. EFT typically produces permanent relief of symptoms when the anchoring events. 19 Joyful Mission !2008 Karen Curry www. It also illustrates the fact that we often know.

(He was using a walking stick to get around without hurting his foot. and he felt maybe a little relaxation in his foot. Bob was very open minded about pursuing an emotional or mind-body connection. Sitting down he gave it an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. you know that a problem with the feet can represent fear of moving forward. but the pain did not decrease noticeably. We used the following Set Ups: “Even though my foot hurts I deeply and completely accept myself…” “Even though I have this pain in my foot…” “Even though my foot is swollen…” We made very little progress with these Set Up statements. and the swelling. Bob said the tapping felt good.) We started by tapping on the pain itself. but the gout wasn't going away. or fear of the future.

Bob worked at a very successful and fast growing company that always seemed to be short on employees. When he had had gout in his other foot. because I own part of the company.

So I asked for any reason why he would want to miss work. he had missed about four days of work. and now he was missing several more. Here are some of the statements which we used: “Even though I feel like I will never get a break from work…. and 12 hour days leave little time for a second career. For Bob that meant 10 – 12 hour days and working some Saturdays as well. owing to the constant increase in new customers. As he told this story.

At different periods the tide of opportunity sets in different directions, according to the needs of the whole, and the particular stage of social evolution which has been reached. At present, in America, it is setting toward agriculture and the allied industries and professions. To-day, opportunity is open before the factory worker in his line. It is open before the business man who supplies the farmer more than before the one who supplies the factory worker; and before the professional man who waits upon the farmer more than before the one who serves the working class. There is abundance of opportunity for the man who will go with the tide, instead of trying to swim against it. So the factory workers, either as individuals or as a class, are not deprived of opportunity. The workers are not being "kept down" by their masters; they are not being "ground" by the trusts and combinations of capital. As a class, they are where they are because they do not do things in a Certain Way. If the workers of America chose to do so, they could follow the example of their brothers in Belgium and other countries, and establish great department stores and co-operative industries; they could elect men of their own class to office, and pass laws favoring the development of such co-operative industries; and in a few years they could take peaceable possession of the industrial field. The working class may become the master class whenever they will begin to do things in a Certain Way; the law of wealth is the same for them as it is for all others. This they must learn; and they will remain where they are as long as they continue to do as they do. The individual worker, however, is not held down by the ignorance or the mental slothfulness of his class; he can follow the tide of opportunity

to riches, and this book will tell him how. No one is kept in poverty by a shortness in the supply of riches; there is more than enough for all. A palace as large as the capitol at Washington might be built for every family on earth from the building material in the United States alone; and under intensive cultivation, this country would produce wool, cotton, linen, and silk enough to cloth each person in the world finer than Solomon was arrayed in all his glory; together with food enough to feed them all luxuriously. The visible supply is practically inexhaustible; and the invisible supply really is inexhaustible. Everything you see on earth is made from one original substance, out of which all things proceed. New Forms are constantly being made, and older ones are dissolving; but all are shapes assumed by One Thing. There is no limit to the supply of Formless Stuff, or Original Substance. The universe is made out of it; but it was not all used in making the universe. The spaces in, through, and between the forms of the visible universe are permeated and filled with the Original Substance; with the formless Stuff; with the raw material of all things. Ten thousand times as much as has been made might still be made, and even then we should not have exhausted the supply of universal raw material. No man, therefore, is poor because nature is poor, or because there is not enough to go around. Nature is an inexhaustible storehouse of riches; the supply will never run short. Original Substance is alive with creative energy, and is constantly producing more forms. When the supply of building material is exhausted, more will be

produced; when the soil is exhausted so that food stuffs and materials for clothing will no longer grow upon it, it will be renewed or more soil will be made. When all the gold and silver has been dug from the earth, if man is still in such a stage of social development that he needs gold and silver, more will produced from the Formless. The Formless Stuff responds to the needs of man; it will not let him be without any good thing. This is true of man collectively; the race as a whole is always abundantly rich, and if individuals are poor, it is because they do not follow the Certain Way of doing things which makes the individual man rich. The Formless Stuff is intelligent; it is stuff which thinks. It is alive, and is always impelled toward more life. It is the natural and inherent impulse of life to seek to live more; it is the nature of intelligence to enlarge itself, and of consciousness to seek to extend its boundaries and find fuller expression. The universe of forms has been made by Formless Living Substance, throwing itself into form in order to express itself more fully. The universe is a great Living Presence, always moving inherently toward more life and fuller functioning. Nature is formed for the advancement of life; its impelling motive is the increase of life. For this cause, everything which can possibly minister to life is bountifully provided; there can be no lack unless God is to contradict himself and nullify his own works. You are not kept poor by lack in the supply of riches; it is a fact which I shall demonstrate a little farther on that even the

the picture clearly. If that is all you do, you are only a dreamer, and will have little or no power for accomplishment. Behind your clear vision must be the purpose to realize it; to bring it out in tangible expression. And behind this purpose must be an invincible and unwavering FAITH that the thing is already yours; that it is "at hand" and you have only to take possession of it. Live in the new house, mentally, until it takes form around you physically. In the mental realm, enter at once into full enjoyment of the things you want. "Whatsoever things ye ask for when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them," said Jesus. See the things you want as if they were actually around you all the time; see yourself as owning and using them. Make use of them in imagination just as you will use them when they are your tangible possessions. Dwell upon your mental picture until it is clear and distinct, and then take the Mental Attitude of Ownership toward everything in that picture. Take possession of it, in mind, in the full faith that it is actually yours. Hold to this mental ownership; do not waiver for an instant in the faith that it is real. And remember what was said in a proceeding chapter about gratitude; be as thankful for it all the time as you expect to be when it has taken form. The man who can sincerely thank God for the things which as yet he owns only in imagination, has real faith. He will get rich; he will cause the creation of whatsoever he wants. You do not need to pray repeatedly for things you want; it is not necessary to tell God about it every day.

"Use not vain repetitions as the heathen do," said Jesus said to his pupils, "for your Father knoweth the ye have need of these things before ye ask Him." Your part is to intelligently formulate your desire for the things which make for a larger life, and to get these desire arranged into a coherent whole; and then to impress this Whole Desire upon the Formless Substance, which has the power and the will to bring you what you want. You do not make this impression by repeating strings of words; you make it by holding the vision with unshakable PURPOSE to attain it, and with steadfast FAITH that you do attain it. The answer to prayer is not according to your faith while you are talking, but according to your faith while you are working. You cannot impress the mind of God by having a special Sabbath day set apart to tell Him what you want, and the forgetting Him during the rest of the week. You cannot impress Him by having special hours to go into your closet and pray, if you then dismiss the matter from your mind until the hour of prayer comes again. Oral prayer is well enough, and has its effect, especially upon yourself, in clarifying your vision and strengthening your faith; but it is not your oral petitions which get you what you want. In order to get rich you do not need a "sweet hour of prayer"; you need to "pray without ceasing." And by prayer I mean holding steadily to your vision, with the purpose to cause its creation into solid form, and the faith that you are doing so. "Believe that ye receive them."

The whole matter turns on receiving, once you have clearly formed your vision. When you have formed it, it is well to make an oral statement, addressing the Supreme in reverent prayer; and from that moment you must, in mind, receive what you ask for. Live in the new house; wear the fine clothes; ride in the automobile; go on the journey, and confidently plan for greater journeys. Think and speak of all the things you have asked for in terms of actual present ownership. Imagine an environment, and a financial condition exactly as you want them, and live all the time in that imaginary environment and financial condition. Mind, however, that you do not do this as a mere dreamer and castle builder; hold to the FAITH that the imaginary is being realized, and to the PURPOSE to realize it. Remember that it is faith and purpose in the use of the imagination which make the difference between the scientist and the dreamer. And having learned this fact, it is here that you must learn the proper use of the Will.
