Hi Everyone,

Mayan Schraders from New Zealand gives us this EFT use for meditation. Mayan says, "In a relatively short time I feel like I have been meditating for hours. If I do this just before going to sleep I drift off very peacefully and have a great night sleep."

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I am a psychotherapist and EFT practitioner and have been using EFT for about 5 years now.  I work with quite a few traumatized clients and can’t imagine working in this field and not using EFT. I trained with EFT Master Barbara Smith, and I want to tell you a bit about EFT Meditation.  This is something which I just stumbled upon recently and have found incredibly effective.  This is yet another way EFT can be used for self soothing as well as lifting the spirit.  I have read some of Carol Look’s and Pat Carrington’s recent work, which is fabulous also, and this just nicely flows on from that.

Sometimes clients hit a place of despair, feeling completely stuck or trapped or having severe anxiety.  After several rounds specifically on whatever the feeling is, I suggest the following meditation (which I do with them in the session and suggest they work with at home):

Karate Chop (just once): Even though I feel anxious

Top of Head: I am held in God’s Light

Eyebrow: And I trust

Side of Eye: The Universal Love and Light

Under Eye: Flows through me

Under Nose: Healing me and comforting me.  Then continue on going around using the same phrases.

Chin: I am held in God’s Light

Collarbone: And I trust

Under Arm: The Universal Love and Light... Skip the karate chop point and the negative setup part of the phrase and continue going through the points.

Top of Head: Flows through me

I tell my clients to substitute any of the words that aren’t right for them to make a more effective phrase for themselves.  For instance, for some people Spirit works better than God.  Healing and comforting can be replaced by a whole range of words such as balancing and grounding, supporting and calming, etc.

This really works for me when I have times when I’m struggling, but also when I’m at the end of the day unwinding before I go to sleep.  I find that after the first couple of times of going through the process, I slow down to the point where I say the whole phrase at each point, slowly and meaningfully.  After that (and this is especially good when lying down in bed), I do the imaginary tapping, saying this phrase in my mind.  In a relatively short time I feel like I have been meditating for hours. If I do this just before going to sleep I drift off very peacefully and have a great night sleep.
