The Tool That Busts Through Your Obstacles
Many believe that if they just have enough willpower that they can be successful at fulfilling their New Year resolutions. They may think that there is something wrong with them since they just don’t seem to have the willpower to follow through. For many that is exactly why they fail. But, there is nothing further from the truth.
Commitments usually fail because at some time in your life you had an experience that you made a decision about, which resulted in a choice and a belief. As you encountered similar experiences later in life you subconsciously made the same choices. This resulted in a pattern of behavior or a habit. Some habits are good, others not so much.
The belief you developed, as a result of that experience, might be somewhat self-deprecating such as
I am not good enough.
I can never do anything right.
If nobody loves me then I can’t love myself and so on.
In the time we spend together during the Resolution Obstacle Buster program, we will work on identifying those life experiences and shift the way you think about them. Once that shift occurs, new behavior patterns naturally follow.
To help you change a habit or to adopt a new one, I have created an instructional video to teach you a powerful technique that helps to shift behavior patterns. It is the Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT. Some people know it as Tapping. We will be using this valuable tool during our Resolution Obstacle Buster program. It is the secret weapon I use to enable you to be successful.
EFT is a powerful method used by millions of people worldwide to relieve stress and shift away from negative beliefs. It can help reduce stress, eliminate phobias and fears, emotions from negative experiences, transform limiting beliefs, overcome obstacles that keep you stuck in unproductive habits, relieve pain and chronic illness and even help you lose weight and improve sports performance. Clinical Studies have found it to be faster and the results longer lasting than traditional psychotherapy or meditation for reducing stress. EFT often works when nothing else will.
So what is EFT? It is sometimes referred to as emotional acupuncture. Unresolved emotional issues or traumas create blocks in the body’s subtle energy system creating a type of “anxiety short circuit” in the body. EFT clears these blocks by gently tapping on key acupuncture points while focusing on pain, unhappy memories, uncomfortable emotions, food cravings or any other problem. When properly done, the underlying emotional factors that contribute to the problem are released, along with the energy blocks, allowing a shift of perspective and the body to begin the healing process.
Tapping Tips: You can tap with either hand but some prefer their dominant hand.
Tap with the fingertips of your index finger and middle finger which covers a little larger area than just tapping with one fingertip.
Tap solidly but never so hard as to hurt or bruise yourself.
Tap about seven times on each of the tapping points while repeating the Reminder Phrase. You don’t have to count the number but be in the ball park.
Most of the tapping points exist on either side of the body. It doesn’t matter which side you use, nor does it matter if you switch sides during the sequence. For example, you can tap under your right eye and, later in the sequence, tap under your left arm.
Rate Your Intensity: Before beginning the Basic Recipe it is best to rate your level of intensity of the emotion you are tapping on from 0-10 with zero being not a problem at all and 10 being the highest intensity of the emotion. It helps to track your progress after each tapping round by re-rating your emotional intensity to verify that the EFT is doing its job. Sometimes EFT clients do not attribute the resolution of their issues to the effectiveness of EFT. They may state that “I wasn’t bothered that much by that situation anyway.” By registering emotional intensity levels on the 0-10 scale, it is a verifiable way by which to measure progress before, during and after each session.
EFT works the fastest by being specific about the emotional issues of events. For example; if you have a core issue of abandonment, tap on “the time your mother left you in the shopping mall in second grade”, not the global problem of “I feel abandoned”. If you are too global or don’t address all of the aspects of the event(s) that created the issue complete resolution of the problem will fail. It isn’t that EFT failed it is that the approach was too global or not all of the aspects of the problem were addressed.
EFT also has some wonderful side effects. You may tap on one issue and you will then notice that something else in your life has improved. A side effect could be that you are just not bothered as much by the previously annoying habits of someone close to you. You could have been tapping on a fear of flying and you notice that some chronic dental pain is gone. Individual results may vary.
