EFT For Beginners
EFT articles, patterns and tips for beginners with EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques
The one EFT question I get asked over and over again is "How do I find the right set up phrase or opening statement to tap on?"
That is the million dollar question in EFT because the right set up phrase or opening statement is exactly what makes the "EFT miracle cure" happen in an instance. And to a large degree, how good an EFT practitioner is I would measure by how quickly and accurately they can identify the kinds of set up phrases or opening statements that would unlock that person's problems like the perfect key unlocks a door.
Here is an easy way to find perfect EFT set ups and opening statements you can do yourself when you are doing EFT in self help and without an experienced EFT practitioner to help you out.

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.

You are not alone!
Lots and lots and lots of people, and probably even your therapist, although they might have forgotten this by now, baulk at the set up phrase "I deeply and profoundly love and accept myself."
Because they don't and they know they don't. And they don't want to do self help based on a lie. Totally understandable!

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".
What would you say if I told you I know of a simple method that can make emotional stress such as upset, anger, fear, concern and distress simply melt away in a few minutes and all you had to do to achieve this is simply touch a few "magical points" on your face and hands?
Yes, it's true, it can be done, and you can learn to do how in a few minutes, for free, if you're interested.
Thomas asks: "Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying, "If I had only an hour to chop down a tree, I'd spend 45 minutes sharpening my axe." Is the EFT Set-up Phrase the axe to my problem tree? Is it the 20% of the technique that accounts for 80% of the results? Is it imperative that I have the RIGHT Set-up Phrase? In other words, is it THE most important part of EFT? Thanks. -- Thomas"
