EFT has now been around for more that 10 years. There 100s of thousands of successful cases, yet still I get asked “Does EFT work?”
What is really behind this is a fear that EFT will work? This may sound strange but there are many reasons for the fear which I have previously written about. Usually in comes down to some hidden benefits we are receiving that we don’t want to admit to ourselves.
If you are becoming indignant as you read this article, ask yourself why you are getting so upset? Maybe there is an element of truth in this which is making you feel uncomfortable and its easier to hide it behind anger and blame.
We can hide the fear of EFT working behind many rational sounding excuses such as:
- I can’t afford it – yet we can find the money for anything we are committed to.
- I don’t have the time – yet we have the time to go to hospitals and Doctor’s and specialists and therapists.
- It won’t work for me – what makes you so different from the other 100s of thousands of people it has worked for?
- It’s really not that bad – how bad does it have to get?
- I don’t believe EFT works – you don’t have to. EFT works anyway.
So after you get rid of the all the rational sounding excuses then what? Then we have to get dirt honest with ourselves about why we haven’t done anything about our problem.
Here is some tapping that may help you uncover your real fears. Use this tapping points guide, start and continue tapping with the following statements:

Even though this article aggravates me because there might be some truth in it, I want to love and accept myself

Even though things will change, I will be different, my life will be different if I don’t have this problem anymore, I choose to feel safe and secure and deeply and completely accept myself.
