What do I say while performing EFT?

By Gary Craig

The simplest answer here is to use the phrasing clearly spelled out in The EFT Course and our Free EFT Manual. If you have a headache, for example, just start the process with this Setup Phrase, "Even though I have this headache, I deeply and completely accept myself" and proceed through The Basic Recipe using "This headache" as the Reminder Phrase. If you have a fear of heights, just substitute "fear of heights" for "headache." And so it goes for any issue you wish to address.

Also, as seen on our later DVDs, there is a more artful way to create the language that can sometimes be helpful. This skill is easily learned by simply asking yourself, "How would I describe this ailment to my best friend?" For example, you might tell your friend...

"My knee hurts so badly that I can't bend it."

In this case your Setup Phrase would be, "Even though my knee hurts so badly that I can't bend it, I deeply and completely accept myself."

Or you might tell your friend...

"I'm still angry because my third grade teacher told me I was stupid in front of the whole class."

In this case your Setup Phrase would be, "Even though I'm still angry because my third grade teacher told me I was stupid in front of the whole class, I deeply and completely accept myself."

If your issue shifts to different aspects then simply "tell your friend" what is happening and use those words in your subsequent EFT rounds.

Another way to develop artful language is to assume that your friend asks you one or more of these questions....

  • If there was a deeper emotional issue behind this problem, what could it be?
  • What emotional issue was going on around the time this problem started?
  • If you could live life over, what person or event would you just as soon skip?

The language you use to answer these questions can then be used in your EFT process. Typically, you will want to condense the phrasing a bit for ease of use but, after a few tries, it will become second nature.
