I learned EFT from Gary Craig who invented and perfected the procedure. I, like Gary, believe that it should be given to people for free. The world would be a much better place if everyone could releaset their negative emotions that are causing them pain, grief, blame, shame or guilt.
Many people ask me about the questions about EFT so here are the answers to the most common questions that I get:
How long does it take and how often should I tap?
Once you’ve done EFT a couple of times and know the process it only takes minutes. You
brush your teeth and shower every day and emotional cleansing should be a part of that
daily ritual too, especially if you want to be calmer, sleep better and feel happier.
How long do the results last?
Emotional healing with EFT is almost always long lasting. Physical healing is often
impressive and long lasting as well, but are more likely to re-emerge than emotional issues.
Are EFT’s results due to either placebo effects or distraction?
No! Placebo effects require some belief in the process and this is rarely the case for
newcomers to EFT. Also, although EFT may appear to be distracting, it will not work if the
client is, in fact, distracted. That is why the client continually repeats a phrase which “tunes
in” to the problem.
Are there any negative side effects?
By comparison to almost any other process, EFT is quite gentle and rarely has any side
effects. It is often used instead of other procedures, because of its gentle nature.
Will I my triggers be removed?
Yes, but you could be triggered emotionally again later by another “related aspect” or piece
that you didn’t work on initially. It doesn’t mean it didn’t work. You just have to apply EFT to
the new piece or aspect until that’s gone too.
I hope that this helps in you pursuit of living a happy life. Please make sure to learn from someone who has kept to the original method of EFT. I have found through years of experience that the way Gary Craig taught the method is the best. Any changes to the original system have usually detracted from its effectiveness.
