Hi Everyone,

Here's a useful tip by Jerem Egan that should have wide appeal.

Hugs, Gary

One of the things I love about EFT is how user-friendly it is and how Gary actually encourages people to bring their own nuances and styles to the technique (please see the Steps Toward Becoming the Ultimate Therapist videos).  I feel that this invitation exemplifies the beautiful intention underlying EFT to empower the user.

I have one very simple technique that I've been using the past year which I love, and would love to pass on - and doubtless, some of you may have already been doing this.  After a few rounds of the basic recipe in which the client has a pretty good orientation to the tapping points, and we have made some progress on reducing the intensity of the issue, I begin the next round by asking them to:

1) begin tapping on any point that they are drawn to, and that I will tap along with them and give them phrasing to say with each point..

2) repeat this procedure about six or seven times, choosing points that they are drawn to - in no particular sequence.

I feel that this invitation to the client to access their own intuition, or divine guidance, is in alignment with the intention to empower them in their self-healing process.  I've come to use it for at least one round for just about every issue that clients are dealing with.  This approach seems to propel them into tapping more on their own as they are less worried about doing the EFT "by the book".

In the hundreds of times I've used this technique with clients, it has been effective in reducing the intensity level of the issues almost 100% of the time!  Some clients were also drawn to points which were not in the basic recipe and got the same positive results!

One other addition which popped up later is that some clients are ready to add their own phrasing to the tapping - as another step in the self-empowerment.  Once in a great while, when I feel that the phrasing is not on target, I offer a gentle tweak as a way of getting back on track.

I send this to all you EFT'ers out there with the wish that this tidbit brings some extra empowerment to your tapping!
