Yes.  Sometimes people are overcome by emotion and can't say the words.  EFT works on the emotions directly, so as long as you are tuned in to the emotion, it doesn't matter if you use words.

I try EFT sometimes but it never really causes a MASSIVE shift in the problem I'd have. I get some SLIGHT relief but it's never 100% -- more so something like 10/20%.

Probably didn't get to the core issue.

When it doesn't work, it's usually because either
(1) the issue tapped on is too global (such as "I feel unworthy"), or

(2) the issue tapped on is the overall belief or emotion as it is experienced today but doesn't get to the core or root of the issue (such as "girls don't like me").

What usually helps is to go back in time to the first time you can ever remember feeling this way or having this thought (sometimes if you tap on the present moment belief, your mind will automatically "pop up" old memories -- this is not accidental, it means the memories are related to what is happening now).

So say a guy thinks "girls don't like me."  Usually that belief was first formed a long time ago.  Something happened, such as girls laughing at him on the playground, and he interpreted that to mean "girls don't like me."  It's that old, specific memory that needs to be cleared.

Gary Craig calls this clearing the table legs (specific memories and events) so that the entire tabletop (negative belief about oneself) collapses.

The Problem with lots of guys who are using EFT for the first time is they want to see instant results without even resolving the core issues. I too fell in to the same category. When i first started applying it, i used it for 15 mins and i did not saw any results and i just left it. But evenutally i presisted and just within 4 hrs i cleared my core issue. Sure EFT can be 1 minute miracle if you are bound to clear away ur core issue and the more u use EFT the more emotional intuation you will develop. The core sucess factor of EFT is to find you core issue and apply EFT on it. If you are using EFT and not seein results that means that 99.99 % you did not found ur core issue and if you newbie to EFT then dont expect instant results, however some times you will get more then you expected. However the more u practice the more proficent u become. Good luck :)

Eckhart Tolle’s bridge to EFT
Note: This article assumes you have a working knowledge of EFT. Newcomers can still learn from it but are advised to get our Free EFT Get Started Package or our Affordable DVDs for a more complete understanding. For more, read our EFT Info and Disclaimer Document.

Hi Everyone,

Those familiar with the spiritual work of author Eckhart Tolle will find this article by Forrest Samnik of high interest. She says, "I don’t know if Mr. Tolle is currently aware of the effectiveness of EFT and how it is transforming the lives of multitudes of people all over the world. I am quite sure, however, if he had been aware at the time of his writing, he would have instructed his readers in at least the basic technique."

Hugs, Gary


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Forrest Samnik, EFTCert-I



Having just finished Eckhart Tolle’s, A New Earth, I am feeling exhilarated. Imagine! A New York Times best seller that describes and explains how and why Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) works! Obviously, that wasn’t the point of the book. I don’t know if Mr. Tolle is currently aware of the effectiveness of EFT and how it is transforming the lives of multitudes of people all over the world. I am quite sure, however, if he had been aware at the time of his writing, he would have instructed his readers in at least the basic technique.

Tolle’s answer to how to break free of the “pain-body” has spiritual merit. He states that the pain-body (i.e., the accumulation of emotional pain carried in a person’s energy field) does not cause the suffering that we inflict on ourselves and others. Rathger, it is the identification we have with it. He reports that once we know that the toxic emotions we are feeling is the pain-body in us, this knowing is all we need to break from our identification with it.

I agree that in separating our authentic selves from our ego created thought of self, we become conscious and thus awaken from our illusion of suffering. And, I’m not saying we shouldn’t strive to live our lives in consciousness. I’m saying we can rise above our “pain-body” by becoming conscious of our egoic thoughts and subsequent pain-body response through EFT. It’s another means through which to meet the same end… Emotional Freedom.

What Tolle has provided those of us who practice EFT is a wide spread education as to the interactive relationship between our thoughts and our energy system and how this relationship creates our toxic emotions and our subsequent discontent. It offers us a conceptual framework and language that is now understood by the many who have read his book. For example, Tolle writes:

“What is a negative emotion? An emotion that is toxic to the body and interferes with its balance and harmonious functioning. Fear, anxiety, anger, bearing a grudge, sadness, hatred or intense dislike, jealousy, envy—all disrupt the energy flow through the body, affect the heart, the immune system, digestion, production of hormones, and so on.”

Though Tolle contends that the emotion creates the disruption of the energy flow and Gary Craig contends in his Discovery Statement that “The cause of all negative emotion is a disruption in the body’s energy system”, I say mox nix (it makes no difference). The important concept here is that by restoring the flow of energy, the toxic emotions are freed.

My experience is that many of my clients are reticent to “focus on the negative” when developing the setup statement. I often hear, “Why do I verbalize the issue I’m trying to get rid of? Doesn’t thinking about it make it stronger?” This is an unfortunate backlash, in my opinion, to the positive thinking movement.

Tolle deftly explains why it is important to tune into the thought, memory, or belief that signals the energy disruption and accept this state without judgment. He states:

“The remnant of pain left behind by every strong negative emotion that is not full faced, accepted, and then let go of join together to form an energy field that lives in the very cells of your body. You can’t argue with what is. Well you can, but if you do, you suffer. Accepting [what you feel] means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling at the moment.”

Now, during the initial consultation with a prospective client, I ask if they have read A New Earth. Many have either read it, watched the interview series Oprah had with Tolle and/or listened to the taped podcasts of this series. For those who have been exposed to A New Earth, it easily serves as a reference point to introduce EFT and the concepts of energy disruptions as the source of emotional dis-ease. This bridge has greatly reduced the initial apprehension to engage in EFT.

Thank you, Eckhart Tolle, for bringing the paradigm of energy disruptions as the cause of emotional pain into the mainstream. Oh, and thank you too, Oprah!

Great post, Shankar.  It's really cool that you're bringing Tolle and EFT together on this board.

Yes, every trauma we ever had in our life is recorded in our cells -- until we release the trapped energy.  I'll give a personal example:  my kitty was killed by a car when I was four  years old.  I of course didn't consciously have any idea that was affecting my life now.  But as I got deeper into EFT, that memory kept coming up and still had tons of emotional charge on it, and it turns out all kinds of negative beliefs were built on it, like it wasn't safe to love and be loved. 

Memories that seem entirely unrelated to pickup will turn out to be the source of your sticking points.  So it's really important to clear them from your energy system!!!

Thanks Shankar.

I was inspired by what Shankar posted and wrote a blog article about the relationship between Tolle, EFT, and "sticking points"
