Hi Everyone,

The 9 Gamut Procedure is taught as part of the EFT Basic Recipe. Although it can often be left out of the EFT process, there are times when it is critical. Tana Clark describes how important it can be in this article regarding her brain damaged daughter.

Dear Gary,

I am an EFT practitioner and have a daughter who is brain damaged from birth.  She did not get enough oxygen due to the cord around her neck for a lengthy time.  I work with her almost on a daily basis with EFT.  She can become very emotional at times, and it seems to take her hours to get over it.  I have tapped with her on many occasions for this problem.  I noticed that if I did not do the gamut point, she didn't seem to settle down. 

Finally I just started doing the gamut point when she "got stuck in the right brain."  Now when she gets stuck, we immediately do a sequence and the 9 gamut procedure, and have 100% success rate to evaporate her emotion.  When people get extremely emotional and can't seem to find a way out, they are stuck in the right brain. 

Many people have problems being stuck in the right brain, and many of us have had the experience where we just can't stop crying.  Doing the eye movements keeps our brain moving from right brain to left brain to right brain.  It helps the brain to work together instead of being stuck in one side.

Not too long ago I met a mother in the grocery store who had a 13 year old boy with her.  He was crying and carrying on much like my daughter does when she is "stuck".  I waited until I could talk to her alone.  By this time the boy had settled down, so I explained what I do, and gave her a quick lesson in EFT. 

She said that her son is special needs, and the doctor says that when he acts that way he is stuck in the right brain.  I showed her what to do, and she was very excited to try it with him.  I also used it for a teenager whose family was moving; she was very upset about it and kept crying and crying.  No amount of setup and sequence helped her feel less emotional.  We moved to the 9gamut procedure, and like magic the tears dried up

Using the shortcut, we often leave out the 9 gamut procedure.  But if there is a large amount of emotion, it is extremely helpful.  I couldn't do without it.
