I kinda got overwhelmed with all the tapping info several years ago and so largely have been a member of this team, in name only...

Today I listened to an infomercial by Jennifer Ortner (is she married to Nick Ortner? or a sibling?). After listening to her song and dance, with the $350-390 finale, I discovered that she has a book out on Amazon for less than $17 bucks. And Open-Captioned, at that, which will be wonderful for me, since not all of her webinar commercial was captioned...

Anyway was curious about your comment about the changes in your elimination and I instantly though, WOW COOL!!! I've not done the tapping yet, but my first instinct based on other things I have read and studied over the years is that likely there is a direct correlation between releasing powerful emotion and the eliminating the physical representations of that baggage inside your body. So, I'm glad you mentioned it, for fear of it being TMI, because, to me, it's oddly reassuring.

Has anyone bought any of the books on EFT and Tapping that are now available on Amazon etc? I had downloaded a multipage PDF document on EFT years ago, I think one of Chris Craig (?) earlier compilation of his notes. It was probably 2-3" thick printed single sided on my page, and was desperately in need of editing, continuity of fonts, white space margin, a few spelling or grammar errors, etc. I was needing help then and just too overwhelmed by the document to get the info I needed so I gave up. At that time, there was nothing published and ready to go. But wow, looks like many people have gone ahead and made their own pass at editing and utilizing the material in that earlier PDF file and made books available now on Kindle as well as various hardcover or paperback editions. I'm currently looking for and saving URL links to any CAPTIONED videos or documentaries etc for EFT and tapping. Also I did find some links that seem to more thoughtfully explain how there would not be a conflict between Tapping and one's personal spiritual walk, including Christianity. So that's another gentle nudge I'm looking at... because I know I have all these emotional blocks that I haven't been able to work out of my system despite all the "head knowledge" of proper foods, exercise, and then making that jump to DOING what I know to be doing....



Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

I see nobody has posted on this thread for almost 2 and a half years. I know what EFT is, but I have some basic questions about other tappers' experiences.

I find some points are more tender than others--for me it's the outer eye/ end of the eyebrow, and especially the under arm points. In fact I have noticed small bruises under my arm, even though I'm not jabbing all the hard. I've wondered if this might indicate a greater imbalance along the corresponding meridians. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Also (how do I put this politely?) I've noticed changes in my physical elimination. Is this common when releasing powerful emotions, as I often am? And if there's a better place for these basic and nitty-gritty questions, please advise! Thanks.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Diane, let us know what you think of the DVD's. I could not make the time to listen to the conference. I think several people in my weekly tapping group also bought the dvd's.

I just finished a 9 day night seminar by way of webinar about EFT from presenters all over the world. I didn't realize they have EFT for ecverything that could possibly think of. Each day was 2 hours. What a way to learn. As a social worker I had heard of it but never seen it practiced. I am impressed with the work it can accomplish. emoticon

That's my next goal ... to print off Gary Craige's free book. I spent some time yesterday viewing the free videos, and that is so awesome! Quite interesting to say the least. I used to work with a therapist that used tapping techniques in some of his therapy, so I knew it worked, but had never really tried it myself. Yep, it works!!

It's not what you don't eat that counts; it's what you DO eat!

Jackie I downloaded Gary Craiges free book and it is very good, lots of information. I have found that a lot of others now do EFT but with shorter versions of tapping which I find better.

Gary Craig was the one who took EFT to the world, so to speak. He learned some of it from a college and he 'tweeked' it so to speak then published his results. His basic program is easy to follow and is effective. Since he introduced the modality, there have been many others who have taken it up and made their own twist to it and they seem to work as well. I find that Garys is very straight forward.

I would say start with watching some of the videos on www.Tapping.com then go and check out Gary Craigs site for more detailed information. All of the info is free and pretty easy to follow. I just recently purchased the EFT documentary "Try It On Everything" and found it very healing. I've had real sucess with EFT where other things including meds.. have not worked. This is real healing that really lasts. It's not a temporary fix or cover up. Tonight I am going to use it on my son's bedwetting problem... I will post a follow up.
Blessings to all...


Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.

In his video, he says he gives away the basic program. Has anyone downloaded it? If so, what did you think of it?

Thanks,

Hi, I was so happy when I found this team. I love EFT. I have been using it for months on other issues and it is really helpful. I am starting to use it to anchor my body issues and it really does help.

Hi Dawn,
I am new to Spark and new to EFT as well. I have been using the EFT technique off and on for the last few weeks and have noticed some differences. Just the other day I became very irritated so I decided to use the technique and noticed that after just one session, my irritation had decreased dramatically. I learned this simple technique at Tapping.com, so for those of you interested check it out. Another resource I have found helpful is Gary Craig's website. If you Google his name you will be able to find it easily.
There are good explanations at both of these sites as to how and why the technique works. It's so simple and easy to use, and it has worked for me. Good luck!
Katherine

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a psychotherapeutic alternative medicine tool based on a theory that negative emotions are caused by disturbances in the body's energy field and that tapping on the meridians while thinking of a negative emotion alters the body's energy field, restoring it to "balance."

EFT was created by Gary Craig in the mid 1990s and is currently used by therapists and counselors such as Paul McKenna and Robert G. Smith who claim it can be used to relieve many psychological and physical conditions, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, general stress, addictions and phobias.

EFT is one of the tools used by Paul McKenna in his "I Can Make You Thin" series.

Critics have described the theory behind EFT as mere distraction from negative thoughts.

Regardless of the view ... if it works for you then it works for you ... and that's a good thing.
