Are You Riding the EFT Bicycle?
When I first brought EFT to the public in 1995, its results were often astonishing and soon got the attention of a worldwide audience. Pains subsided and emotions were relieved, often in minutes, and without the use of drugs, surgeries or other invasive procedures.
The EFT Bicycle:
It was as though I had introduced a bicycle to a therapy population that had spent decades walking from issue to issue. By contrast, this bicycle was a Godsend ... the therapeutic invention of the century. It was faster, more convenient, more efficient, more economical and it often worked where nothing else would. All Hail EFT! was the outcry often heard from devotees.
Advancements - The EFT Automobile (Gold Standard EFT Tapping):
But, at this stage, no one knew about the advancements to come. We were all so enthused about the bicycle that we were unaware that improvements would soon bring us an "EFT Automobile" that was far faster and more efficient than our revered bicycle.
So then came the improvements: First there was the understanding of Aspects and the proper Testing of our work. Then came Specific Events, Detective Work, Chasing the Pain, The EFT Success Strategy, The Tearless Trauma Technique, The Writing on Our Walls, Reframing, Rambling Language and a long list of other procedures to add depth,quality and longevity to our results. These refinements are now known as Gold Standard EFT Tapping and for those who have immersed themselves in these essential quality procedures, the reward has been monumental.
More Advancements - The EFT Spaceship (Optimal EFT and The Unseen Therapist):
We have now reached the equivalent of a spaceship headed into the healing cosmos. It involves the spiritual dimension instead of tapping and provides unlimited possibilities. It starts with my e-book The Unseen Therapist and proceeds to our self-help Optimal EFT Course - Online Training From the Founder and then to Complete EFT Certification.
But something else happened along the way to derail many EFTers from this quality path. There was such a fascination for the EFT Bicycle that many people chose to "improve the bicycle" rather than learn the new skills involved in The EFT Automobile and The EFT Spaceship..
EFT Bicycle Accessories:
So a nearly endless stream of bicycle accessories were devised and promoted on the internet as the latest and greatest EFT innovations. Some put on fenders while others added gears and different spokes. Also adorning the bicycle were bells, horns, reflectors, lights, baskets and different paint jobs.
But, despite all these efforts, the EFT Bicycle is still a bicycle. It may be a bit prettier and the ride somewhat smoother. But you still have to pedal it and, if you use it to travel from San Francisco to New York, its limitations would soon be obvious.
Where Are You?:
So where are you in this regard? Are you humming along in the EFT Automobile (Gold Standard EFT Tapping) or headed toward the cosmos in The EFT Spaceship (Optimal EFT)? Or are you still riding the EFT Bicycle by using global approaches, "scripts," brief youtube videos and the like.
All levels are available to you. The EFT Bicycle is easier to learn but its limits will often lead you into dead ends. The EFT Automobile will take more diligence to master but will open many more doors. The EFT Spaceship requires a new form of thinking but can generate healing at unimagined levels. Your choice, of course.
How good do you want to be?
