Silvia Hartmann writes: It must have astonished many people that six months AFTER I unveiled EMO, my own "creation" and contribution to the field of meridian & energy therapy approaches, I would have spend this much time and effort in writing another major book on, of all things, EFT! Dear old, simple, classic EFT. Now why would I do that? I am not the type of person to produce a sequel to the wildly successful "Adventures In EFT" just because of the money - I can't be motivated to go through the true effort it takes to plan, write and produce an 80,000+ word full scale manual with a few dimes. The truth is that ...

... EMO, as wonderful as it is and in many ways, as easy as it is, still needs a bridge.
EMO was never designed as one of those stand-alone, cure-for-all cult like therapies or healing systems which tells all who would listen that you don't need anything else, this is it, we have Nirvana.
The universe is a complicated place, and it is my contention that everything has an ecology and a rightful place in the gigantic web of life - including EMO.
Perhaps it is because I am a woman and don't have either genetic nor entrained desires to go "silverbacking" and deny where I learned the things I know or pretend that I'm the new king of the castle and everything that went before was meaningless, I am in the happy position to not have to decide whether I should be endorsing either EFT or EMO.
In my opinion, both systems have a more than rightful place in self help and therapy, and they work together like a dream.
One is not better than the other, or righter than the other; both are outstanding "across the board" for a multitude of problems and it is true that I looked to the content free design of EFT which I admired so very much when I designed EMO and made jolly sure that it would share EFT's truly fantastic benefits in that way.
I believe that a good, no a full knowledge of the systems of EFT and the treatment procedures are the very best grounding in the new energy therapies approaches one might hope to find.
Working with the energy therapies, a great many things that were previously learned about healing or counselling are simply no longer applicable; some things are even diametrically opposed to what used to be standard procedure for a hundred years.
There is a lot to learn still.
I would not have been able to understand what I needed to know to design EMO without EFT; and I believe that any student of EMO would seriously benefit from knowledge about EFT - and vice versa.
As I said, these two techniques go together like a dream and fit perfectly, covering between them a span of possibilities of healing and growth for an individual, it is actually quite difficult to conceive.
The title of this article is, "Beyond EFT" and that is quite correct in the sense that EMO works with energy systems beyond EFT as well as using a completely different model of the energy body - an evolutionary rather than a static one. This be as it may, EMO *is* a direct progression and in being so, is inextricably linked to EFT by precedence and also, by approach. I don't want to actually say that not everyone is ready yet for EMO all the time; the fact is that there are times and place, especially with clients but also in self help, where EFT provides the safety anchor in preference to EMO.
The Advanced Patterns of EFT is therefore both the progression - the missing link, if you will - as well as offering inordinate flexibility in negotiating our own energetic levels and layers, and our levels and layers of consciousness.
Below is the Conclusion from Advanced Patterns of EFT which explains this further.
In the meantime, I highly recommend serious students of EMO to take a look at these patterns; and anyone who does EMO should, in my opinion, also be very well versed in EFT.
Here is the conclusion to Advanced Patterns:
Now, here we are at the end of “The Advanced Patterns of EFT”.
As certain things already show, there are of course dimensions of mind-body totality healing we have not even thought to touch or investigate properly.
There are many hints of totally other states of being, other ways of experiencing anything all through the application of EFT – just classic EFT and nothing more! – to common human problems.
In the summer of 2002, I developed something that takes the base learnings from all the many, many EFT sessions and approaches I had worked with and, going back to the drawing board completely, shows a new way of dealing with disturbances in the Energy Body.
This new way is called EMO, or ET for short.
EMO is both far simpler and far more complicated than EFT. It is simply other than EFT and it was my pleasure in preparing this book to really come face to face with how other EMO actually really is, because it arises from very different propositions about how humans work in their totality and what needs to be done to restore “The Even Flow” – a human energy system firstly working again as it was originally designed to be working.
However, I will not now nor will I ever either forget or forget to give credit and the most inordinate respect to EFT and its originator, Gary Craig, who gave me the tool I needed to make EMO.
The funniest thing of all at the very end of this book is to say that EMO simply makes most of the patterns here redundant.
However, I appreciate that I came to EMO via exactly these patterns and in performing these advanced patterns and working with them, I pushed the existing paradigm to its limits. When those limits broke under the strain, I learned how to do it differently altogether.
I would therefore invite you to use these patterns, with all due respect and care and all the disclaimers, because they are the bridge from EFT to EMO and that whole other map of the world and the magic you will find therein.
I sincerely hope that the students of EMO now and in the future will not only read about these patterns, but actually do some of them because they hold the proof in actuality of why and how EMO works and that knowing about these patterns and understanding them will deepen their own connection between the original psychology precepts and what we are dealing with now.
Such an understanding is in my opinion vital at this stage in order to allow people to move from the old to the new without a sense of loss, without experiencing apex effect because it is simply too mind blowing to shift paradigm without some form of stepping stone system to help make that necessary and in the end, inevitable transition.
I would also further invite you as you work with these patterns to always retain a sense of the question, “What do they all have in common?”
These patterns here are just a minute proportion of what I could have written about.
In answering this question, or even just attempting to answer it, lies breath-taking progress into whole new possibilities of growth, change, healing and most importantly, a state of being for humans that is so other from what we have been shown these last 100,000 years or more, that you could even say – at last , there’s hope.
With best regards to you on your path,
