The EFT World Summit 2 has truly been an experience (and continues to be). I listened to almost all the audios as they happened, and tapped along. I feel cleansed and renewed already. And it’s not quite over yet.
UPDATE: It IS over and has been for a while, but you can get an easy introduction to EFT here:
And if you get that you’ll also get my self help newsletter and I’ll let you know about future EFT events!
In the meantime, here’s one of the highlights of the summit:
Among my favorites was Patricia Carrington’s Choices method and well, there were so many wonderful other sessions, I will have to just write about them over time, one at a time.
The reason why Patricia Carrington’s stood out for me personally was because she really expanded my view of how to use EFT.
Traditionally, EFT was developed to reduce or remove negative feelings etc. Carrington uses it to increase good feelings.
I already knew about tapping on the positive, which I learned from Carol Look and Brad Yates, but Carrington took it some important steps further.
If you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction, you can immediately see the benefits of such an approach. We attract what we feel, and the better we feel, the better the things we attract.
This is all very nice, but what if we don’t feel so hot? What if life is rough and we feel very justified in wallowing in self pity, thank you very much.
It’s that old Leslie Gore song all over again– “It’s my party and I cry if I want to!”
And in a parallel vein: “I’m feeling miserable and I’m well within my rights to wallow in my misery.”
Well… we may be within our rights, but how is it serving us? Not so well, right?
The problem with that attitude is that we stay stuck in those feelings of misery. Bill Burns says that we do that because it feels familiar, and getting away from it makes us very uncomfortable.
I say, let’s get over it. I much prefer to feel good, and since Patricia Carrington’s method can get me to snap out of it when I need a bit of help in that area, she’s now my new best friend, or at least, my new favorite EFT teacher.
In addition to Carol Look, and Brad Yates, that is. Oh, and Jessica Ortner, who has created a very cool tapping sequence that she made available as a download. It’s about overcoming Fear of Failure, Fear of Criticism, and Impatience. Great stuff.
P.S.: For another way to snap out of it, check back here in the next day or two for my new post on Alan Cohen’s new book!
