Colin Carter from Australia found that combining EFT with meditation (in a unique manner) gave him increased benefits. He describes the process in this article.

I'm writing to you about a variation to EFT's Personal Peace Procedure which I call the Meditation Procedure.

Over many years I have learned numerous techniques for meditating. But it has never been permanently successful because either a) It takes up too much time; b) I can't seem to stop my mind from chatting too much; c) It's boring; d) The results were not strong enough to be committed to it.

What I have discovered is a very effective EFT alternative to traditional ways of meditating or relaxing. I sit in a quiet place, I close my eyes and I welcome every thought that comes into my mind. If the thought is not obviously happy in any way, I consider it a "problem" to be treated with EFT (without the 9-gamut). Many times I wonder if the thought is a "problem", but I accept it as such and I might start EFT with "Even though I have some concern about...". It's amazing how many little things have some effect on our day-to-day stress" levels!

I then wait for the next thought and apply the technique. What I find after about ten minutes is that I suddenly become aware of myself, where I am and what is going on around me. My thoughts seem to be very distant and "cloudy". For some minutes I experience an uncluttered mind and feeling of calm. I don't force it to continue - I just open my eyes and continue with other tasks. I just know I have cleaned out a lot of subtle emotional feelings, which individually don't seem a problem, but collectively are causing some degree of "stress". It's great to do just before bedtime.

It just shows how EFT applies not only to specific issues, but can be applied as an overall technique for achieving calm in our lives.
