Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

If you have not already done this with me in session, you might want to watch the videos and instructions (below) before diving into doing the actual EFT Procedure. If you have done this with me, go straight to the (click this link) EFT Procedure.

If all this is confusing (and it can be at first), ask me about it and we can work on tayloring it to your needs individually.

The 9 Gamut Procedure Video Demonstration.

This is the actual EFT Procedure:

Report/rate level of intensity of the issue/feeling/problem from #1 to #10 with #1 being the least strength and #10 being the most. "Feeling like a failure"  or "feeling depressed about myself" or  "I have this headache #10" or "I have a problem with anger and frustration."


While continuously rubbing the "Sore Spot" or tapping (acupressure) the "Karate Chop" point (KC point-pictured on the left)… Repeat 3 times…

”Even though I feel angry and frustrated about...or you put whatever negative feeling you have in this space, I deeply and completely accept myself.”

Tap (acupressure) about 7 times on each of the following energy (meridian) points while repeating a "Reminder Phrase" at each point:

EB = Beginning of the EyeBrow - “Anger and frustration”

SE = Side of the Eye - “Anger and frustration"

UE = Under the Eye - “Anger and frustration”

UN = Under the Nose - “Anger and frustration”

Ch = Chin - “Anger and frustration”

CB = Beginning of the CollarBone - “Anger and frustration”

UA = Under the Arm - "Anger and frustration"

Top of Head - “Anger and frustration”



The 9 Gamut to awaken your system...Continuously tap (acupressure) on the "Gamut point" (shown on pix) while performing each of these 9 actions:

1. Eyes closed - “Anger and frustration”

2. Eyes open - “Anger and frustration”

3. Eyes hard down right while holding the head steady - “Anger and frustration”

4. Eyes hard down left while holding the head steady - “Anger and frustration”

5. Roll eyes in a circle as though your nose was at the center of a clock and you were trying to see all the numbers in order - “Anger and frustration”

6. Same as #5 only reverse the direction in which you roll your eyes - “Anger and frustration”

7. Hum 2 seconds of a song (suggest Happy Birthday).

8. Count rapidly from 1 to 5.

9. Hum 2 seconds of a song again.

Report level of intensity from #1 to #10.

At this point, if the intensity of the issue has gone down to #0 then you are finished. If not, then go for a 2nd Round until the intensity is at least #1 or #2.

Note: In subsequent rounds the Setup affirmations and the Reminder Phrases are adjusted to reflect the fact that you are addressing the remaining problem as the problem changes, i.e.: "Even though I still feel some anger and frustration about...., I deeply and completely accept myself."

If you find that this is not working to lower the intensity of your issue, you may require some help with identifying the real issue as sometimes we are not aware consciously of what needs to be addressed first... or you may have what they call a "reversal" which is a little more complicated but still workable. Please ask me about this so that we can formulate a plan in tune with your individual needs.

Muscle Test Your Subconscious Beliefs

Click the arrow to view the video:

Muscle Testing establishes a convenient communication system with the subconscious mind, and when used properly, can be an accurate detector of subconscious truths. Because the subconscious mind controls motor functions in the body, such as muscle movement, we can use this "built in" biofeedback mechanism to find out when the subconscious agrees or disagrees with a given statement.

Muscle Testing Procedure

Step 1. As the person doing the Muscle Testing...
A. Your partner may select either arm for testing. Stand to the side looking over your partner’s shoulder. (See illustration)

B. Keep one hand resting lightly on their extended arm between the wrist and elbow. Place your other hand on their shoulder for stability.

C. Your partner's body should be relaxed, chin parallel with the floor and their eyes open and focused down.

D. Tell your partner to “Be
Strong ” just before applying pressure.

E. Apply a gentle but steady pressure for about 2 seconds or until you feel the muscle either “lock in place,” (STRONG Response) or “let go,” (WEAK Response). Your partner should resist the downward pressure. (Avoid “bouncing” the arm.)

Step 2.
Ask your partner if the pressure you are using is comfortable. Adjust the pressure, e.g. harder or softer, in order to achieve a clear muscle response.

Step 3.
Muscle Test a statement you know to be
TRUE about yourself and then a statement you know to be FALSE.

For example, with their arm extended for Muscle Testing, have the person being tested say, "My name is (insert actual name)" and then immediately Muscle Test. Remember to tell your partner to "Be Strong" just before you press, so they will know when to resist the downward pressure. Note the response. The response should be STRONG if the statement is TRUE . Next, have the person being tested say, "My name is (insert fictitious name)" and immediately Muscle Test. The response should be WEAK if the statement is FALSE.

If you are still uncertain when the muscle response is STRONG or WEAK, practice with some other TRUE and FALSE statements, (e.g. your age, sex, occupation, etc.) until you are getting clear responses. Like anything else, Muscle Testing is a skill and may require a little practice.

Sore Spots

There are two "Sore Spots" and it doesn't matter which one you use. They are located in the upper left and right portions of the chest and you find them as follows:

Go to the base of the throat about where a man would knot his tie. Poke around in this area and you will find a U shaped notch at the top of your sternum (breastbone). From the top of that notch go down 3 inches toward your navel and over 3 inches to your left (or right). You should now be in the upper left (or right) portion of your chest. If you press vigorously in that area (within a 2 inch radius) you will find a "Sore Spot." This is the place you will need to rub while saying the affirmation. This spot is sore when you rub it vigorously because lymphatic congestion occurs there. When you rub it, you are dispersing that congestion. Fortunately, after a few episodes the congestion is all dispersed and the soreness goes away. Then you can rub it with no discomfort whatsoever. I don't mean to overplay the soreness you may feel. It's not like you will have massive, intense pain by rubbing this Sore Spot. It is certainly bearable and should cause no undue discomfort. If it does, then lighten up your pressure a little. Also, if you've had some kind of operation in that area of the chest or if there's any medical reason whatsoever why you shouldn't be probing around in that specific area then switch to the other side. Both sides are equally effective. In any case, if there is any doubt, consult your health practitioner before proceeding....or....tap the "Karate Chop" point instead.
