An aspect is a part of a situation or a problem or a person. In order to do EFT well, high specificity is often required in the way the EFT treatment is set up. Any given problem or person can have many aspects, but they can only ever have one aspect at one time.

The EFT Healing Event, previously known as the "EFT One Minute Wonder" or "The EFT Miracle," is the experience of a unique feature of modern energy work. Instead of a gradual decrease in symptoms, a lightning strike of healing occurs as all of a sudden, energy is freed up and rushes through the energy system.
EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping on special energy points whilst tuning in to an emotional problem which needs to be released, is an energy technique. EFT is not hypnosis, it isn't witchcraft, it isn't psychology or a behavioural pattern interrupt, it isn't tissue massage or physiotherapy - EFT is an example of modern energy work.
Trying to deny this simple fact in order to gain "scientific acceptance" is not an option, as energy work is greatly influenced by intention and directed by conscious focus of attention.
Using EFT from the wrong mind set reduces its effectiveness; and conversely, when we apply EFT "with energy in mind," we put EFT in its rightful place in the treatment of the mind, body, spirit triad and we improve its effectiveness, power, ease of use immediately and noticeably.
When we combine tapping EFT with aromatherapy, we can create some very interesting experiences of healing and improving the flow of energy.
Vinay from India asks about how often you can tap EFT in a day on an issue and how many days it takes to get over an issue with EFT.

We all have acquired energy reversals about talking freely about energy!

To conduct really successful EFT treatment sessions, the EFT practitioner and client need to work together as equals. The EFT practitioner brings their experience and knowledge of EFT and the client brings their knowledge and experience of the problem. When they work together, become in fact the EFTeam, the problem doesn't stand a chance!

Do you have "Permission to Heal"? Just recently, the whole "permission debate" has flared up again, most notably in the context of proxy healing and EFT proxy tapping. Is it permissible to proxy tap EFT for someone else for their problems?
Here is the full content of a presentation given by Silvia Hartmann at the 3rd European Energy Psychology Conference in 2010 on using the breakthrough insights from Events Psychology to expedite EFT treatments, and how to find the "magical opening statements" (set ups) which bring about the EFT miracle experiences.
Essential information for advanced EFT practitioners and trainers.
The big "hang up" in EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques for beginners is to find the right EFT set up or EFT opening statement - what you say when you tap your round of EFT.
Once you've done EFT for a while and with a few other people as well (which gives a much better perspective than always tapping only on yourself or wondering about your own problems) finding EFT set ups is easy, logical and natural. Here is a tip how to speed up learning how to find the right set up phrase or opening statement for EFT self treatment for beginners.
A wrote: I first learned about EFT when I bought a reprinted copy of Dr. Roger Callaghan's book "How to Overcome the Fear of Public Speaking and Other Phobias" way back mid-90's. I lost the book before I could really give it a serious try and have forgotten about it until late last year.I borrowed some books and went to youtube.com, but instead of being enlightened, I was actually confused. I am even scared to practice EFT.

When God hands you a lemon, you make lemonade ... In Psychology there exists the concept of secondary gain, meaning that there are some benefits from holding on to a mental, emotional or physical problem. In EFT treatments it is important to address these secondary gains, especially when the EFT treatment doesn't seem to be working; but there is also another form of gain, namely the primary gain: the reason for having the problem in the first place.
Includes three example EFT cases to illustrate the concepts of primary gain and secondary gain: EFT Case 1: Psychosomatic Kidney Pain, EFT Case 2: EFT Not Working On Weightloss Issues, EFT Case 3: Failure To Recover From A Stroke.

Ever wondered what it is with magic and noses? Why witches have such big noses, and TV witches twitch their noses to make magic happen? Or wondered what this might have to do with EFT tapping points, meridians, self-confidence destroying global reversals and all that jazz?
No? Well, my friend, don't worry any longer - here is a great tip to tap, based on the 8 mysterious "magic meridians" or Qi Jing Ba Mai, which are said to be the gateways to mystery and magic ...
Paranormal skills and abilities, which include energy healing, telepathy, empathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience and many other very helpful talents besides, are run by aspects of our energy systems that are fine, and fragile.
As such, this "psychic circuitry" is extremely susceptible to stress disturbances which can and do result in problems with magic - manifesting all sorts of chaos, creating psychosomatic illness in oneself and in others in the environment, and of course, magic failure when nothing works any longer at all. EFT can help.

J. B. Rhine, who began investigating paranormal phenomena at Duke University in 1927, conducted a series of experiments whereby volunteers had to predict a suit of cards from a choice of four. He conducted many experiments, and his data showed a small statistic anomaly but it wasn't enough to convince the skeksis that was really something to ESP or, as you might term it, "being lucky at cards".
Recently, someone looked at his raw data and noticed that there were also some test results that were so bad, they were statistically significant also - people who got nothing right, or much less than their "fair share" of accidental bits of good luck. If you add those people, the ones who somehow managed to defy the odds and never get lucky to the ones who nearly always got lucky, you do end up with a really significant result for J B Rhine's experiments ...
Theoretically, everyone should "get lucky" some of the time.
"I have also seen a number of clients who would express a negative emotion, decide to tap on it, raise their hand to the Sore Spot or reach over for the Karate Chop tap, stopped in mid movement and started to laugh as the whole thing had already happened, all by itself."

I enquired as to what they were trying to do, and what opening statements they were using and as they started to explain it to me, I had to self treat so I wouldn't burst out laughing my head off when the person was so serious and troubled by their enquiry and long standing problem.

Raising your metabolic rate makes you faster, stronger and more efficient in mind and body. EFT achieves this by taking out *blockages* and *reversals* which are slowing our metabolism down and is thereby safe and ecological. Raising your metabolism is a content free, very basic endeavour that supports everything you might want to think, be, do or achieve. It works wonders with procrastination, makes "hard" work much easier, helps with fitness and health without having to go to the gym or eating less, and brings about life style changes naturally and from the inside out - they just happen as a result, without willpower or any other type of force being employed to "make it happen".

Certain problems cannot be resolved until they are resolved in the right order and sequence. A ship cannot leave a harbour successfully until the crew is on board, the anchor has been lifted, the ropes tying it to the quay released and the engines switched on – and all of this needs to happen in the right order and sequence or else the whole process simply gets nowhere at all.
Learning to do EFT as a ritual has great advantages in moments of high disturbance and crisis.

EFT involves tapping on certain meridian points to unblock and re-balance the energy system. Exactly HOW one taps, makes all the difference to exactly how good the treatment is going to be. Dr Hartmann takes a closer look at tapping EFT, and how to tap right.
In the quest of “getting in touch” with your own or a client’s unique internal experiences of any given problem, metaphors are probably the single most powerful, infinitely subtle and precise forms of linking up that are known to us at this point.

Here is a complete EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques Protocol for you to try courtesy of the best selling book on EFT 'Adventures in EFT' by Silvia Hartmann.
This is the original, classic EFT protocol including the Gamut treatment that helped so many since 1996.
Like EFT, this technique is based on the meridian system which transports energy around the body.
Fear and stress results in blockages in this system. When the blockage is softened or removed, energy flows freely and you experience a sense of calm and well being.
