I regularly give homework assignments to my clients and class participants only to find that some of them won't do the tapping in between sessions! Even after experiencing clear progress in the session or class, they get a strange form of amnesia and say "well, it didn't really work for me."

No matter how clear I am, how many word for word instructions I write down, there are still some people who are "resistant" to following through. This basic form of resistance might be present for a number of reasons such as fear of change, psychological reversal, oppositional behavior, or just feelings of being overwhelmed.

For therapists and EFT practitioners, the most important thing to remember is DON'T GET FRUSTRATED with your clients for being resistant! See it as simple feedback, or of course if you have already gotten frustrated, tap on it :)

We have all been (and will all be again) resistant about making changes in our lives. The trick is to accept the resistance and build it into the work. For non-practitioners, please be patient with yourself and use the EFT statements below to clear this issue. All of us need to accept this as much as any other hurdle in our work or personal life.

Below you will find EFT Setup Phrases followed by two rounds (one negative and one positive) for this newsletter's topic, Resistance to Doing EFT.

1. EFT SETUP PHRASES

The EFT SETUP Phrases for this topic are as follows:

While tapping the karate chop spot on either hand, repeat these phrases out loud, (or change the words to fit your exact situation).

"Even though I feel resistant to doing the tapping, I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway."

"Even though I feel hopeless because nothing ever seems to work for me, I choose to accept that I don't want to do it."

"Even though I have been sabotaging my progress by refusing to do the tapping, I choose to accept whatever conflicts underlie my resistance."

I have indicated where to tap while saying each of the phrases below. You may repeat this round more than once if you wish. (Those of you who are new to EFT may view a chart of the spots on my web site under the EFT pages.)

***Now, for the phrases that focus on the problem***

Eyebrow: "I haven't been tapping and I don't know why."

Side of Eye: "I don't want to do the tapping."

Under Eye: "It seems like a waste of time."

Nose: "A part of me feels afraid to change."
