Resistance

Being uncertain without being anxious is totally possible. Have you tried EFT for anxiety when you’re facing the unknown, and the EFT just doesn’t work? Sometimes the reason it doesn’t work is because you’re trying to tap away uncertainty. You can tap away unwanted feelings, but uncertainty isn’t really a feeling. It’s a state of […]

The term anger covers a whole spectrum of feelings. Does one of these words fit better for you? frustrated, annoyed, irritated, bugged, impatient, aggravated, upset, resentful, mad, outraged, pissed off, blaming somebody else or yourself, (your favorite term here). Choose your word and apply it wherever you read the word “anger” here. To shift that […]

Your connection to people you care about can interfere with your tapping. But only when you’re not aware of the possibility. When someone who is important to you shares your issue or the experience it came from, your subconscious can send up a red alert. It says, “I don’t want to release this issue. I’m […]

Many people using EFT find themselves avoiding working on childhood events and issues. These are some “why”s I hear from clients: That was so long ago. I’ve already dealt with that in therapy. I don’t see what it has to do with me now. I don’t remember much about my childhood. Let’s work on current […]

Speaking from (way too much) personal experience, I know how it feels to be critical of other people — not so great. Even if I’m feeling so right about it all! It’s still a crummy feeling to experience. And it doesn’t change a darn thing except making me feel worse. So I want to pass […]

This challenge showed up with a client yesterday, so I dusted off a topic from last year to remind us all about how tricky it can be to do EFT about the people we’re closest to. Resentment and hurt and love are often tangled up together. So when you tap on an issue with these […]
