Often when you begin tapping, the process of resolving the issues seems overwhelming and endless. There are so many issues, intertwined aspects and endless events to tap on; it does take time. And you feel –
1. When will this end? When will my problems get over?
2. What’s the use ? I’m still behaving in the same way.
I often hear this in 1 to 1 sessions with my clients.
And I suggest to them:
1. Don’t put your life on hold for EFT. See EFT as a process. Don’t wait for the problems to get over to begin doing things. If you start thinking that I will only do this ___ after I’m over this___ and this___, then it will feel like an endless process.
2. See the little changes that have taken place. If your goal is to be more confident in a social setting or to stop smoking, look for the subtle changes that have taken place. What did you do differently after tapping? Maybe you still weren’t so confident in the party , but did you feel less anxious in the party as compared to your past experiences? Maybe you didn’t stop smoking, but did you take less number of cigarettes? These are subtle differences. There will be subtle changes at the thought, feeling and behavior level after tapping. You need to look for them and remind yourself about how far you’ve come in this journey of self-growth.
EFT is a journey of self-transformation. So don’t forget to ‘live’ while you work on your goals.
p.s – As someone aptly commented on Facebook – EFT is definitely a worthy time investment!
