EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques
Energy EFT with Silvia Hartmann
About EFT & Modern Energy
In 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
Energy In Mind."
What we now call Energy EFT is the next generation of EFT applications.
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
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.
