How to tap away anxiety with EFT

EFT works effectively and quickly.

The results vary and can be seen after a single session and sometimes after several sessions. It is advisable to do daily sessions to clear all of the blockages in the meridians and reprogram the limiting and false beliefs that are stored in the subconscious mind.

As blockages are released, underlying issues can come to the surface and cause some temporary emotional or even physical discomfort. This is an important part of the process and nothing to worry about. If in any doubt, contact your physician.

Allow the emotions to come through as part of the cleansing process and let them transmute and dissipate. Do not hold onto the emotions that are surfacing as you might suppress them back into place and diminish the positive effects of the tapping sequences.

The Tapping Points

EFT, Tapping Sequence

1 – Getting started with EFT

Rate the intensity level of your pain or issue from 1 being low to 10 being the highest. And the end of the tapping sequence re-rate your emotional charge for the issue. Set a clear intention for what it is that you want to resolve. Then say the phrases out loud or in your mind as you are tapping through the entire sequence.

2 – The EFT Tapping sequence

Rub the sore spot gently, then tap each of the remaining points rhythmically 7-8 times. As the first point is being tapped, say out loud the first phrase that applies to your issue. As you move on to the next meridian point, also move on to the next phrase.


Repeat the entire sequence and use the suggested phrases given for each round, or formulate your own phrases.
