I have a feeling that your experience with tapping has gone something like this…
You learned the basic tapping points. You’ve had some small successes when tapping with a teacher, a practitioner, or a friend.
You know tapping works because you have experienced it firsthand, but now you are not sure what to do next. You have the picture of someone with the tapping points marked on their body staring up at you.
But now what?
What issue to start with? What phrase to say out loud?
Because you are not sure and you don’t want to do it wrong you decide to try it again sometime later.
AND later never comes.
Not Knowing How To Do EFT On Your Own Is More Common Than You Think
What is described above is a very common experience. EFT is deceptively subtle. It is very simple to do. All you have to do is tune into an issue and tap.
The problem is there is a lot going on in an unspoken way.
To help you I have created some very simple tools that will help move from tapping with someone else to being able to tap on your own.
Each of these tools will either answer a very common question or give you slightly more sophisticated tools to use while tapping.
Think of this like taking your tapping training wheels off.
