The Animal-EFT Protocol

What Are The Meridian Therapies?
Originally developed for people,
Meridian Therapies is the generic name given to a group of techniques that
all work by tapping on major body meridian points.
Unlike acupressure, you tap or
touch very lightly, sending small shockwaves or soothing pulses with your breath
through the meridian system, balancing and re-energizing it and clearing
blockages as you do so. Another main difference between the New Meridian
Therapies (also sometimes called Energy Psychology or Meridian Energy Therapies)
and acupuncture and acupressure is that you use your intention and focus
to direct which particular problem you are working on.
What Is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Techniques by
Gary Craig - is the easiest and most user friendly of these techniques. In a
moment, you will learn how to do EFT on yourself.
You will shift your own
energy system in doing so and relax or release something that you focus your
What Is Animal EFT?
When people first find out about
Animal EFT, they immediately think that it is about tapping ON animals and ask
where they should tap their animals.
Although of course animals do
have a meridian system, many of the points are in places where animals truly do
not like to be touched, never mind tapped. The wonderful thing about Animal EFT
is that you DON'T tap on the animal directly, but you tap on yourself to
make the changes happen.
This is called Proxy Tapping
has lots of advantages:
You can do it at any time
and even anywhere - you do not have to be in the same room with the animal.
You can do it much more
often than an animal would generally permit.
You can help wild animals,
animals that don't belong to you, and animals that you can't really touch
much, such as birds and fish.
Once you have learned the
simple technique, you can use it on any problem, on any animal and you don't
have to know anything at all about their various meridian systems or points.
So how does Animal EFT work?
When you focus your attention on
an animal, you connect your energy system with theirs.
When you keep the focus of your
attention on a specific aspect of that energy system (a problem, disease,
behaviour, state of mind and so on) and you change YOUR system by tapping on the
points, YOU ARE ALSO CHANGING THEIRS through the connection.
This was originally discovered
when a lady, distraught because she was sitting by the side of her premature
baby's incubator and unable to touch him, treated herself for the baby's
problems and the baby responded by breathing more easily and slower, and finding
from somewhere the will to live and to fight on more strongly than before. Since
then, thousands of people all over the world have been absolutely astonished to
find that by tapping on themselves whilst holding another living being's
problems in their mind, they can make changes without touching them or even
being in the same room.
I don't expect you to believe
this right away. I didn't believe it either when I first heard about it. But I
tell you, when you neighbour's dog 100 yards away stops barking after an hour
just because you have tapped a round of EFT on yourself, a shiver goes down your
spine and you KNOW you made that happen as if by magic, it is a real convincer
experience. So next, here is the Animal EFT protocol for you to try out:
The Full Animal EFT Protocol
1. Focus Your Intention
Think about the animal and what
specifically you would like to release, soothe or change.
2. Make A Statement Of Intent
Find a phrase or a sentence that
describes the problem succinctly and clearly to you. You can say, "Sidney has
this terrible allergy." or "Sam never stops barking." or, "This brown horse is
distressed." if you don't know the animals' name.
3. The Blessing
We surround the statement of
intent with the words, "Even though (Sam) (is hyperactive), I deeply and
profoundly love and accept (Sam)." It helps bring you closer to the animal for
deeper changes and handles permission issues as well as having positive benefits
for YOUR system.
4. The Full Opening Set-Up
Place your flat hand on your
chest, either left or right, just above your heart. Wait until you can feel the
warmth of your hand through your clothes, rub the hand round in a small circle
and say the opening statement which is the statement of intent inside the
"Even though (insert name or description) (insert statement of
problem), I deeply and profoundly love and accept (name or description)."
Repeat this opening statement three times in all, continuously rubbing the
chest area just below the collar bone known as the Sore Spot.
5. Tapping All The Points
We now use a shortened version
of the opening statement which is called the Reminder phrase and tap lightly
with one or two fingers, about seven to nine times, on the following spots
(either side is fine) as we say the statement of intent on each point once:
Start Of The Eyebrow - Where the bone
behind your eyebrow turns into the
bridge of your nose.
Corner Of The Eye - On the bone in
the corner of your eye.
Under The Eye - On the bone just
below your eye, in line with your pupil if you look straight ahead.
Nose - Between you nose and your upper lip
Under The Mouth - In the indentation
between your chin and your lower lip
Collarbone - In the angle formed by
your collarbone and the breastbone
Under Arm - in line with a man's
nipples on the side of the body
Thumb - all finger points are on the
side of the finger facing towards you, in line with the nail bed
Karate Chop Point - on
the side of your hand, roughly in line with your life line.
Gamut Point - on the
back of your hand, just behind and between the knuckles
of your ring and little finger.
When you're all the way
through, take a deep breath in and out. You can repeat the treatment with a
different statement - often something comes to your mind as you do this.
Different statements create
different changes, so experiment with many different forms of wording and ways
of saying something until you feel comfortable.
