Hi Everyone,

Some new EFTers puzzle over the "right words to say" for their EFT Setup statements. Actually, there is no puzzle at all. Just put words around whatever is coming up for you. It is like telling your best friend what's bothering you. Most folks have no problem with that at all. To provide a further aid, Jasmine Bharathan from India gives us this helpful guide. Study it. You should find it quite useful.

Hugs, Gary

I hear people say “Oh, I didn’t know what statement to say when I was very upset and so I did not get around to tapping.” or “ I don’t know how to be specific; there are so many things”. People ask me “I am upset with my boss. What statement should I use?”.

Are you fumbling for the right statements?

You are the best person to formulate the right statements, the right choices and the right direction in an EFT healing process for yourself. But how? Is there an easy way out? Try this fun way to do it.

Take a paper and pen … Draw the trunk of a tree … On it write the title of your distress. For example: Annoyed with Boss.

Draw a few branches to the left and the right of the trunk.

On the left side, write on each branch a reason for the annoyance.

For example, on the left side: Rejected my input … Screamed at me in front of my subordinates … Avoids me when I talk about an increment

Draw a leaf on each branch. Write down the feeling when you look at the branch

For example: Branch name: Rejected my input:  Feeling: Sad

Branch name: Screamed at me in front of my subordinates: Feeling: Angry

Branch name: Avoids me when I talk about an increment: Feeling: Upset

On the right side, write on each branch what you may choose to feel instead

For example, on the right side:  Branch name: I choose to approve of myself … Draw a leaf next to it, read the name of the branch and ask, How? Answer might be: “Lovingly” approve of myself

Branch name: I am willing to celebrate my inner strength … Draw a leaf next to it, read the name of the branch and ask, How? … Answer might be: “Joyously”

You now have your EFT statements:

Even though I am really annoyed with my boss…

Even though I am sad that he rejected my inputs, I choose to joyously celebrate my inner strength

Even though I feel upset that he avoids me when I talk about increments, I choose to lovingly approve of myself
