Here’s the 5 steps to basic EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping

Before you get started take a look at the EFT tapping points that you’ll be using:

EFT Tapping Points

STEP 1 – Focus on the problem

Think about what’s causing you pain and holding you back from being happy. This could be a feeling, a specific event or even a physical pain.

A sample may be, “I have this fear of snakes.”

STEP 2 – Rate the intensity level you feel when focusing on your problem

Using a 0-10 scale, with 10 being distressed to the max and 0 being not distressed at all, say the first number that comes to your mind when you focus on your problem.

STEP 3 – Create a setup statement

To create a setup statement start with “Even though”, describe your problem and finish up with “I completely and deeply love and accept myself”

Let’s continue with the fear of snakes example:

Even though I have this fear of snakes, I completely and deeply love and accept myself.

Tapping the Karate Chop (KC) point, repeat the setup statement that you just created 3 times aloud.

“Even though I have this fear of snakes, I completely and deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I have this fear of snakes, I completely and deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I have this fear of snakes, I completely and deeply love and accept myself.”

STEP 4 – Tap the shortcut sequence

Tap the following points 7-8 times while saying a reminder phrase.

In this case, the reminder phrase is “this fear of snakes

Eyebrow (EB) – say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Side of the Eye (SE) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Under the eye (UE) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Under the nose (UN) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Chin (CH) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Collarbone (CB) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Under the arm(UA) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Top of Head (H) say aloud “this fear of snakes”

Repeat this pattern for 2 more rounds then breathe in and out deeply 3 times

STEP 5 – Rate the intensity level you feel when focusing on your problem again

Focus on the original problem and say the first number from 0-10 that comes into your head now.

Should the intensity level be any number above a 2, start at step 3 and repeat the rest of the steps as follows:

Change the setup statement to the following

“Even though I still have some of (this fear of snakes), I completely and deeply love and accept myself.”

For step 4, change the reminder phrase to: “this remaining (fear of snakes)”

Breathe in and out deeply 3 times and say the first number that comes to your mind when you focus on your problem. Continue this sequence until each specific aspect of your problem is zero intensity or until you’re ready to stop working on it for the day.

Have a big glass of water and do not tap on the issue again for at least 24 hours. Often your intensity level will be lessening whilst you rest. You may be surprised how low it is after 24 hours, it has even frequently been known to drop to 0.
