EFT Tapping Script For Diseases: Three Lines Of Enquiry

EFT Tapping Script For Diseases: Three Lines Of Enquiry

Here is a commonly asked question that comes all the time about "finding the right EFT script for disease X" and it goes as follows:

"I (or someone I know) suffers from (insert ANY disease known to mankind). I'm thinking of using EFT - BUT do you know of anyone else who has successfully overcome/healed (disease X) and HOW did they do it? Where can I find an EFT script for (disease X)?"

  • The "Three Lines Of Enquiry" is a simple, practical and very effective way for beginners to find their way into a problem and come up with the right EFT set up statements and create their own custom EFT scripts which are RIGHT and PERFECT for THEM.

The 7 Greatest LIES that have held you back - and the 7 TRUTHS that will set you free!

Sometimes, you can refer the person to an existing case history, which may or may not be relevant to this case in hand; sometimes you quote Gary Graig and shrug your shoulders and say, "Well just start tapping, Gary says to try it on EVERYTHING ..."

I thought about WHY people ask this question in the first place.

WHY don't they just start to tap somewhere and see where it goes?

Perhaps they just don't know WHERE to start.

So we came up with three "lines of enquiry" to recommend in answer to the "where is the specific EFT Script for someone who has disease X?" question, which between them, should point even a complete EFT tapping beginner in the right direction.

  • Before we start: Tap a round or two of EFT on "stress." This calms down mind, body and spirit, we can think more clearly and that makes it much easier to formulate a good set up statement.

When we are ready, we can consider these.

Line of Enquiry 1: Thoughts

1. Use set up statements relating to thoughts about and awareness of the disease:

"My blood pressure is too high ...," - "I suffer from ..." , "I have (insert name of illness) ..." - "The doctor says this is incurable ..." etc.

Line of Enquiry 2: Events

2. Use set up statements relating to the timeline of events, ie what happened just before the onset of the illness.

"I lost my job ..." - "My husband came back from Iraq ..." - "My mother died ..." etc.

Line of Enquiry 3: Feelings

3. Use set up statements relating to the actual feelings in the body:

"This feels like someone is strangling me ..." - "The pain is like fire ..." - "This pain is killing me ..."

Between those three lines of EFT enquiry, something will likely shake loose and you'll notice an improvement, even if it is only SOME improvement.

If you are the patient, start with the line of enquiry that seems the most urgent or important to you; if you are a practitioner, you can offer the choice of the three lines of enquiry to the client, or take them through all three one session at a time, in the order you deem best.

As you tap through the set up statements generated by the three lines of enquiry, quite a bit of experience and practice builds up and after having worked with all three, a very rounded and holistic treatment, but also UNDERSTANDING of the disease begins to emerge.

Importantly however, this simply model of the 3 Lines Of Enquiry gives people a place to START TAPPING EFT in the first place - which is the most important event of them all.

So ask:

  1. What do I think?
  2. What has happened to me?
  3. What do I feel right now?

.. and the answers you give (or the client gives you) are the perfect EFT script for that person in that moment.

That's the perfect way to make the best out of the wonderful EFT technique, and gives you the perfect, custom made EFT script for that one individual person who is like no-one else on this planet.
