About EFT & Modern Energy Techniques

EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques Tapping Points DiagramIn 1998, I came across EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, designed by Gary Craig, and I was immediately fascinated. There began a five year odyssey through the fascinating realms of energy tapping, much of which is documented in Adventures In EFT.

In 2002, I started developing a different system of working directly with the energy body that did not involve tapping on meridians, EMO or Energy in Motion. This was and is an open ended research project which brought us a definition of emotions, the discovery of the 6th Sense and much more besides.

In 2011, I was asked to create a new, modern EFT professional training that encompassed what had been learned in the preceding years about energy, but also based on the feedback from EFT practitioners around the world and their practical experiences with teaching EFT to others.

I agreed but only under the condition that we should stop beating around the bush and acknowledging publicly that EFT is an ENERGY treatment.

This is a paradigm shift with many repercussions as I explained in "EFT With Energy In Mind."

What we now call Energy EFT is the next generation of EFT applications.

We are still tapping on certain energy points, we are still using set up phrases to direct the attitude of consciousness, but we now have a much better understanding how EFT works, how energy treatments work, what has to be done to have them be predictable, reliable and successful, and how practitioner and client have to interact in order to get the best out of EFT.

The basic principles are explained with self help in mind in "Energy EFT", and the new EFT Master Practitioner Training courses for TheAMT are based on the same principles and structures. The advances include the new aspects model, replacing the SUD scale with the SUE scale, Events Psychology and a relationship based approach to modern energy work.

In 2013, I wrote "Positive EFT." We have had using positives since Energy EFT but very few people actually understood that in modern energy work, positives can be far more healing than working with trauma only. There are innumerable benefits to Positive EFT. It is a perfect introduction and gives a good experience literally within minutes, is a failsafe self help technique (you don't have to psychoanalyse yourself and get to feel better right away, and you can't pick the wrong positive!), perfect for children and in client work, completely changes the course of the treatment and makes EFT into a much better experience for everyone concerned. Learn Positive EFT here.

EFT was always the best self help technique - ever. Now, it is revolutionary and no longer do we talk about just "tapping our problems away" but going much further than that, into a stress free, positively energized life.
