We all have lots of things to do, so many demands on our time and resources.

There is work to be done, a home to maintain, family to care for, holidays to take and so on.

With all those other calls on your time you might ask “Why bother spending the time to learn EFT?”

If you were to ask me that question I would answer it with five questions of my own.

Have you noticed that a lot of our stressful situations are repetitive?

It is often the same old things over and over again.

Perhaps you have:

  • difficult meetings with your boss every week.
  • to endure your idiot brother in-law’s bad behaviour at regular family get-togethers.
  • a particular kind of customer that just keeps showing up and making your life miserable.
  • regular conversations with your teenage son that frequently turn into rows.
  • etc.

You survive each encounter with gritted teeth and dread the next incident.

How To Lose Your Negative Emotions By Choosing Them

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
– Viktor Frankl

In a recent edition of the NLP Comprehensive newsletter I read an article about a variety of useful techniques for shifting unhelpful emotional states written by NLP Practitioner and Trainer Kevin Creedon (who sadly died a year after this article was written).

This part of the article caught my eye.

“Emotions are Choices. William Glasser, M.D. in his book Choice Theory makes a strong case for the idea that emotions are choices, even when they don’t feel like it. …Whether or not emotions are choices is true, it is a very useful assumption.

1. I am grumpy.

2. I am feeling grumpy.

3. I am choosing to feel grumpy.

What are the differences for you? Which gives you the greatest freedom (and responsibility)?

You know the stress response don’t you?

Someone says something, does something or even just looks at you in a particular way and your anxiety level shoots up.

I was talking with a friend about using EFT to manage the stress response. She described being in a conversation when something triggered her anxiety reaction. She said on the surface she handled it with calm efficiency while just below the surface it was as if her hair stood up on end, she threw up her hands and shrieked.

I laughed and we wondered how many human social interactions were like that. Then I wondered what would it be like to be able to see these reactions as they happened rather than the calm surface most people present.
