EFT is designed to give you emotional freedom. And it’s a quick route to reach that destination. There are two ways EFT gets you there: through tapping and through words.
Tapping follows certain maps of points. Words follow certain patterns. But inside those patterns, you’ve got lots of options. So choose the option that works best: Your Own Voice.
What do I mean by that? I mean use your personal words, your own phrases. And if English is NOT your first language, use your first language.
Feelings have thoughts that go with them. Thoughts are made up of words — your words. The energy blocks that EFT removes are connected to those feelings, thoughts and words.
They got parked in your system in your language. Your everyday words. So back them out (with EFT) the same way you parked them — with your words.
- Trust yourself. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just try it and see what happens.
- Modify EFT scripts from EFT practitioners to fit your words.
- Leave therapy talk and healing language for your other practices. Your subconscious doesn’t talk in those words. Your inner self speaks and thinks in your everyday language.
- Call feelings what you call them. Here are some examples of options:
Anger: Do you feel mad, frustrated, annoyed, furious, pissed off, outraged, or bugged?
Fear: Do you feel anxious, nervous, worried, scared, jittery, tense, or concerned?
Sadness: Do you feel bummed, blue, depressed, down, heartbroken, or gloomy?
You get the picture. Use your own expressions and phrases while you tap. And if you swear when you’re angry, swear when you tap on that issue that had you angry. Let it out the same way it got lodged in there.
Personalizing your own EFT will help you release issues more quickly. Your system has one less kind of resistance in its path to healing.
So give it a try and let me know how it goes for you. Do you notice a difference? I’d love to hear from you.
