EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

Basic Instructions (Download now)

1) Choose an issue or difficult emotion to work on.

2) How much does it bother you when you think about it right now? Rate your starting intensity on a scale of 0-10 (where 0=no distress and 10=highest level of discomfort.)

3) Perform The Set-Up 3 TIMES as follows:

hand Use 2 or 3 fingers of one hand to tap on the Karate Chop Point (KC) along the side of the other hand between the pinky and the wrist. As you tap, name the physical or emotional issue you have chosen to work on, being as specific about how it feels as possible. Say the following:

Even though I feel___________ or
I have this___________feeling, (fill in the blank,)
"
I deeply and completely accept myself” or
I accept who I am and how I feel.”


4) The Reminder Phrase: Tap on each of the RELIEF POINTS shown below 5-7 times while staying tuned in to your issue by repeating an abbreviated reminder of your feeling:

This______ feeling (Fill in the blank)

5) Rate your ending intensity:
Think about the same issue again, and rate how intense your feelings about it are now on a scale of 0-10 (with "10" being the highest intensity and “0"meaning it doesn’t bother you at all.) If you still feel some intensity…

6) Perform the Set-Up again with the following changes:

Modify the set-up statement in step (3) to reflect the fact that you have decreased some of the intensity of your feeling, but there is still more to work on. “Even though I still have some of this __________feeling,
I deeply and completely accept myself.” or “I accept who I am and how I feel.”

TAKE A DEEP BREATH

8) Repeat Steps #5-#7 as needed

If you notice as you tap on a particular feeling that it is located somewhere in you body, you can tap like this:

Even though I have (or still have) this __________feeling and I feel it in my __________(name the body part) and it feels like __________(describe the qualities like color, size, weight, temperature, texture, etc.,)... I deeply and completely accept myself.” or “I accept who I am and how I feel.”
