Let me share a powerful technique I have found for assisting anyone struggling to release their old patterns. Many of you will already have heard of Emotional Freedom Technique, commonly called EFT, and may even have tried it. It aims to rebalance the body by systematically tapping on various meridian points around the face and upper body and has been used successfully to treat anything from fear of heights to confidence. There are a number of versions of it, but I particularly like Brad Yates’ 9-point tapping system:

Decide on the problem you want to address and rate your current discomfort level with it out of 10.

Choose your Set-up Sentence to reflect this problem in the format, "Even though I have this (name the problem), I choose to love and accept myself." Then systematically tap 5 -10 times on each of the following nine points in sequence.

1. Karate Chop Point - using the index and middle finger of one hand, tap repeatedly on the side of the other hand in the hollow just below the little finger while saying your set-up sentence 3 times.

2. Inner Eyebrow Point - using the same fingers for tapping as before, repeat the name of the problem, for instance, “This feeling of unworthiness” 3 times at each of the remaining points.

3. Outside Eye Socket

4. Under Eye Socket

5. Under Nose

6. Chin Point, just under lip

7. Collar Bone Point - make a loose fist with one hand and tap 5 -10 times at the top of the sternum, so it connects with just below both collarbones. Remember to repeat the set-up phrase 3 times.

8. Underarm at Bra Level - 4 fingers tapping this larger area

9. Crown Point - with your hand cupped as if you are holding a tennis ball, tap around in a circle on the top of your head, to tap across multiple meridians simultaneously.

Once you have finished this circuit of tapping re-rate your discomfort level with the problem. Ideally the rating out of 10 will have dropped. Repeat the tapping and set-up phrase as above until the discomfort level has dropped to zero or it stops changing. You may find other related set-up phrases (other aspects of the problem) may also be required to get the rating to a zero.

*An interesting way I have also found to use EFT is to record your own positive affirmations and then listen to the recording as you tap the above points in sequence in repeating circuits. This allows you to focus continuously on the positive and not on "the problem".
