Hi Everyone,

Avril van Rooyen from South Africa takes a very global approach to feeling better about her shattered soul. While this brings her some temporary peace, it also allows me to make this helpful comment within her article... "GC COMMENT: Avril is right. These uses of EFT do not get to core issues and are very global in their approach. They can have soothing effects...at least temporarily. However, aiming EFT at the specific events underlying this shattering feeling is usually more efficient, deeper and longer lasting."

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I have been an EFT user for the past 8 months.  Due to various issues in my life, I have also been reading a number of self-help/spiritual books. When I read these paragraphs in Gary Zukav's book, The Seat of the Soul, they struck a chord with me:

"All psychoses and psychotic breakdown will finally, eventually, be put into its proper language, which is "shattered spirit."

"The body needs rest, and it needs care, but behind every aspect of the health or illness of the body is the energy of the soul.  It is the health of the soul that is the true purpose of the human experience.  Everything serves that."

I realised when I read these that my soul was indeed unhealthy from being battered and shattered throughout my life.  I decided to try EFT (which is energy/ spirit healing anyway). I call it my Soulwork.  When I identify with the statements and EFT them, I feel a profound sense of recognition deep inside, and then a lifting, a quiet peace.  It is not getting to core issues, but I have found it to be a general tonic to my energy spirit and often related issues do appear, which I then take note of and tap away.

GC COMMENT: Avril is right. These uses of EFT do not get to core issues and are very global in their approach. They can have soothing effects...at least temporarily. However, aiming EFT at the specific events underlying this shattering feeling is usually more efficient, deeper and longer lasting.

I tap once a week on different soul issues, as per the following example :

Even though I carry fear in my soul, I love, accept and forgive myself anyway. I do a few rounds of the reminder phrase, This fear in my soul (until I feel the lift and acknowledgement).

Even though I carry fear in my soul, I choose to release this fear from my soul.

Even though I carry fear in my soul, I choose for my soul to be wonderfully unafraid and quietly at peace.

Even though I have carried this fear in my soul for all these years, I apologize to my soul and now allow it to be free of fear.

Even though I carry so much fear in my body, I love, accept and forgive myself anyway.

Even though I carry so much fear in my body, I choose for my soul to be wonderfully unafraid and quietly at peace.

Even though I carry this fear in my mind, I love, accept and forgive myself anyway.

Even though I carry this fear in my mind, I choose for my soul to be wonderfully unafraid and quietly at peace.

Even though I have carried fear in my soul, body and mind for all this time, I thank my soul, body and mind for the strength, the wisdom and the courage to endure it all.

The emotions we carry in our souls, bodies and minds are many.  I am tapping on :
The anger in my soul / body / mind  (choose peace / calm / serenity)

The darkness in my soul / body / mind  (choose light / warmth)

The sadness  /(choose joy / laughter / gratitude)

The grief  /(choose acceptance and to let it go)

The guilt  /(choose forgiveness and innocence)

The irritation  /(choose acceptance)

The disappointment  /(choose to let it go)

The abuse  /(choose comfort)

The neglect  /(choose care)

The addiction  /(choose to release)

The anxiety / panic  /(choose calm and serenity)

The pain  /(choose relief)

The hunger  /(choose satisfied)

The unforgiveness  /choose to forgive / let it be)

Even though my spirit is shattered, I'm OK and I love, forgive and accept myself and all those who were involved in the breakage of my soul. (body/mind)

Even though my spirit is shattered, I'm OK and I choose for my soul to forgive and to mend.

Thank you Gary for your generosity and kind soul in giving all of us the gift of EFT.

Best wishes,

Avril van Rooyen
