Sapphirez... For basic EFT it's not just talking casually, but as Aquarian said, you need to make clear sentences about the specific feelings you have that you are treating.

With the Movie Technique you run the memory movie in your mind while tapping through the points, noticing all the feelings and sensations that come up with it. Then repeat until the feelings have all become neutral and you feel lighter.

If another feeling or uncomfortable memory comes up, do the same.

Just keep going like this.


EFT calls the method "tearless trauma" because although you need to feel the negative feelings a little so they can be released, you don't have to get into intensity or drama about it. It works.

No, you just need to feel the feelings. I was talking about the second part of the phrase 'accept/love myself' which provides the impetus for change.

And given that failing to clear each individual feeling/issue through lack of thoroughness is relatively unhelpful, it's not a great technique.

EFT is great for millions of people around the world, but not for everyone, I agree.

Just caught a small part of EFT, sounds really interesting! Have seen articles relating to good effect on some healing or well being on people suffering from different types of pychosis! That can only be a possitive thing! It might not be for everyone but possitive outcomes should always be praised!!

Yes... There are many articles, websites and YouTube videos about EFT. For it to really work you need to learn to use it correctly, so it's best to study a whole book, or a full-length training video. There's a free mini manual at http://EFTuniverse.com under "Get started free".

No, no... EFT is a great, peerless technique and I'd definitely recommend it to everyone.

All that critique is reserved for the variant where someone is going through a lengthy re-telling and isn't stopping to do the technique properly.

PS. Getting SUDS down to 1 means the problem isn't resolved. You have to go to zero and test across multiple contexts.
