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 afraid it means releasing my connection with that person. And I don’t want to do that. So I’m not going to release this issue.”
And your whole tapping session gets bogged down while you try to figure out the problem with your emotional intensity level staying stuck. Sometimes this hidden loyalty factor can make you think that EFT isn’t working.
Not true! You just need to make some adjustments to your tapping. Here are some simple ways to work with loyalty and EFT so you can get better results:
- Ask yourself if your issue has connections to anyone you’re close to.
- If so, acknowledge it in your setup. Say something like, “Even though a part of me is concerned that letting go of this issue means letting go of [the person's name], I want to love and accept myself anyway.”
- Reassure yourself during your tapping rounds. Say something like, “I’m willing to release this issue, and I know I’m still connected to [the person's name].”
