Every Day Tapping
It's amazing when one hears and observes wonderful changes in people's health and emotional wellbeing, how painful memories of 50 years are simply laid to rest, and huge and marvellous shifts are taking place.
But for me, the true miracle of my meridian therapy of choice, namely EFT, is the little things.
On Friday, I finally had my new patio doors fitted. On Sunday morning, I smashed them accidentally when I dropped a heavy screwdriver which bounced point first and shattered the glass into a million pieces. I was about to start berating myself for my stupidity when I sat on a chair and tapped instead. And so, I just cleaned it all up and ordered the replacement glass.
In the past, this would have spoiled the entire day and may have even led into a full blown feeling of depression and unhappiness. Now, it's ok.
There are so many things that used to upset me and that are now ok, too. Like a condescending bank manager, getting stuck in traffic, getting nervous before appearing in public, being afraid to go to the dentist, losing my temper with my children, looking into the mirror in the morning and deciding I'm ugly, headaches, worries and indecisions.
All these little annoyances day in, day out. Each one a little grain of sand in my shoe, altogether a big rock that made walking through life so tiring and difficult.
Now, they're going. One by one. And in a funny way, that's contributing more to my daily happiness, serenity and peace of mind than the big shifts I thought would make me happy.
Good tapping/tabbing/tat-ing etc to you all!

Many meridian therapies, such as EFT and TAB, can be very successfully conducted over the telephone. This is a real boon for those who can't travel, are bedridden, or who are too far away from a good therapist.
Like any session, the first thing is for the telephone client to learn the points and how to tap/tab/manipulate them. Some therapists send out material before the actual session such as a large chart with the points clearly marked, to cut down on explanations and time and for the client to refer to as the process unfolds. For EFT, it can be helpful for the therapist to tap on the telephone and have the client do the same to judge how fast to tap, and with how much strength. Some clients "hit" themselves too hard, and others don't put enough energy into the process, so this is a good way to adjust the strength of their tapping when you can't see them.
The second part, where the problem is discussed and the therapist listens carefully for tell tale statements that will later be used for starting affirmations and to tap on, is not so different from a face-to-face session. For someone who hasn't done so consciously before, it is amazing how much you can tell through someone's breathing patterns and changes in their tone of voice about their state of mind. Any therapist who does telephone consultations on a regular basis will know how much it sharpens one's perception of these things, and how, in some cases, these indicators are far more immediate and accurate than visually noticeable changes can be.
The third part is to start the process and to guide the client through it. Deep sighs, the onset or cessation of weeping, yawns all tell when an energy shift is taking place. This can take a while, and it's important not to hurry through this. Some long standing problems do have many aspects.
The last step is to test for the change. This is either done using something like the VOC scale or SUDS levels - the client is asked to rate their own internal changes; but with the advent of mobile phones, real tests for things such as spider phobias can be done by the client walking into a pet shop with the therapist a thousand miles away on stand by - just in case there was an aspect that was overlooked!
Testing is absolutely essential. Not only does a good test tell the therapist when the work has been successfully completed, it also ratifies the change to the client's conscious mind - the energy therapies can work so rapidly, that a problem can be completely healed yet the client had the problem for so long, they can't believe it has really gone away! In cases where real life tests are impossible, the therapist ususally does their best to encourage the client to get the old symptoms back. If they do come back, it simply means that an aspect has been overlooked or some more work needs to be done in order to really make the change "stick" in all ways, under all circumstances.
Some therapists like to do a back up interview about a week to ten days later. They like this because they like being told how wonderfully it had worked, and that always makes the therapist's day! However, in some cases it can be helpful if "an aspect got away" or if the client has any questions, or would like to discuss discoveries they have made whilst using the process in the interim.
To find a telephone therapist in your country, contact The Amt (Find A Practitioner) and we will gladly put you in touch.
Some problems, may have been caused by a single event and have just one aspect to them. When this one aspect is dealt with, the problem disappears for good.
