This post is for my mom, with whom I had a delightful conversation yesterday about my latest passionate interest, something I providentially stumbled onto quite recently, and have been learning everything I can about ever since: EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, the relatively new acupressure personal tapping technology developed by Gary Craig from Dr. Roger Callahan's Thought Field Therapy (TFT)®.
I will write more about this in my next blog post, but for now, I will simply include some links that I found on Youtube. I was surprised to find the whole EFT documentary entitled "Try It Everything" (recently changed to "The Tapping Solution") there. The last time I looked for it there I could not find it. Some of the links demonstrate what Gary Craig called "the Basic Recipe". There are two traditional EFT demos, a short cut, and a fuller version which includes additional tapping points and innovations that were added later, with Gary Craig's approval.
I have only just begun to apply this technique at my job with the developmentally disabled people I help, and I have already seen very interesting results. What I find very interesting about this is the fact that I have already seen a great deal right at this humble beginning of much to confirm what Craig teaches in his instructional videos, and this is with people who have no real conception of what to expect, so this cannot easily be explained with recourse to the placebo effect.
EFT Try It On Everything/ The Tapping Solutoin -- The trailer - WATCH THIS FIRST - DO NOT SKIP IT! Very good, very important:
Then watch one or more of the demonstration links showing you how to tap --
Rod Sherwin - Full Basic Recipe, very thorough, uses symmetrical double tapping for thoroughness, a later recommendation by Gary Craig .
A couple of more links demonstrating the more traditional version of the Basic Recipe, without the additions and double tapping (linked here so you can get more than one point of view on what works):
And then watch the movie. It has been posted in 9 parts on youtube --
In my next post, I will write in more detail about my very recent experience with trying EFT out for the first time.
