This excellent EFT tip comes courtesy of Charlie Curtis of the Art Of NLP Yahoo newsgroup.
A really quick and easy way to do EFT, that can be done just about anywhere, as it doesn’t draw attention, is:
- Place several fingers of one hand on the gamut point of the other hand (the groove between the ring and pinkie fingers) and apply pressure and rub gently in an almost imperceptible circular motion. This just looks like you’re scratching your hand and draws no attention from onlookers. Or alternatively, you can pretend to be nervous or bored and slowly tap the flat of these fingers on the gamut point, and that will work too.
- Doing this while a negative emotion is active will cause the negative emotion to quickly reduce in intensity and then disappear, usually in about a minute’s time. The speed with which this can work is truly stunning, as a seemingly-locked-in-place feeling of upset, depression, fear, or whatever can just melt away “just like that” and be completely gone in a minute’s time.
- This can be used for compulsive urges, such as a smoking or food urge, for negative feelings like a feeling of annoyance, depression, or anticipatory anxiety. It’s a quick and easy way to handle pre-event jitters. It fits right in and is very natural when you’re sitting in a waiting room where other nervous people are unconsciously rubbing and tapping on their hands, as they do “natural EFT” to relax.
Many thanks to Charlie for letting me pass this on
