Everyone is talking about Positive EFT, and many have strong opinions about it without knowing what it actually is or how it works.
Here is our guide to Positive EFT in a nutshell, plus your chance to try it out for yourself and make up your own mind.
What Is Positive EFT?
Positive EFT is a sub set of Energy EFT.
Energy EFT uses the SUE Scale from -10 to +10 to measure how energized/happy/strong a person feels.
The purpose of Energy EFT is to take a problem state to a solution state which happens naturally when energy is high enough - +8 to +10.
It is possible to raise energy fast and reliably by using positive set ups, which empower the energy body.
Working with positive set ups to raise energy to +10 at any time, from any "now" state, is what Positive EFT does.
In a therapy/healing session, it is normal to start with problem statements and once we get to Zero, to switch into the empowering/positive statements.
However, Positive EFT can be used at any time to raise energy without having to go on a lengthy trauma quest first. This makes Positive EFT extremely useful in every day life for many reasons, and in many ways.
+ Positive EFT means working with positive energy forms to focus on the NOW and the FUTURE, instead of focusing on the past.
For example, "What do you want more of?" (SUCCESS, HEALTH, VITALITY, LOVE, RESPECT, POWER, CONFIDENCE, PEACE, SERENITY, HAPPINESS, FREEDOM etc) instead of, "What's wrong with you?"
+ Positive EFT generates powerful positive emotions fast - it makes people happy, feel good, feel strong, feel powerful.
+ Positive EFT is simple and safe. Pick a positive energy form from the chart and tap on it. There is no need to psychoanalyse oneself or others.
+ For beginners and for people who have never tried EFT before, Positive EFT is a safe, instant and highly positive experience of being able to change your emotions for the better very fast, without tears, without trauma, without hassle.
+ For self help applications, Positive EFT is extremely safe, fast and highly energizing, allowing a person to feel empowered and do things they felt they could not do before.
+ For vulnerable clients in therapy, Positive EFT builds strength, relieves energy body stress fast and can be used at any time to lift and stabilise the client throughout any kind of EFT process.
+ For groups, tapping Positive EFT on joint desired outcomes makes for safe, uplifting, powerful and highly transformational energy experiences.
+ For all people working with EFT, Positive EFT provides all-important practice in the positive ranges of the SUE Scale, which is where the EFT healing events happen.
* As virtually all therapy based learning and experience has focused exclusively on negative emotion and on trauma, even experienced psychoanalysts, psychologists and counsellors have no formal training in working with positive emotions or on the plus side of the SUE Scale. This is of the essence in EFT treatments however in order to get the long lasting EFT will provide if handled correctly.
Positive EFT - Frequently Asked Questions
Is that not just positive thinking/
No. Positive EFT increases the flow of energy through the energy body. This results in powerful POSITIVE emotions, feeling strong, feeling happy, feeling in control.
Are you not just sweeping your real problems under the carpet?
The energy system is not a carpet. Positive EFT makes a person feel stronger and more powerful, right here and now. This can be what even allows someone to "face their real problems" eventually.
Does Positive EFT replace all other types of EFT treatment?
Of course not. Positive EFT is a training course in the missing positive side of the SUE scale - the power of positive emotions to inspire, enlighten and strengthen a person. It is also extremely effective "in the field" when there simply is no time to go on a lengthy "trauma root" quest but action needs to be taken.
A single round of Positive EFT can often help a person deal with their "here and now" far more effectively.
Can Positive EFT accidentally solve problems?
Yes, it can and it does. Encouraging positive energy flow can clear old existing blockages, just like a rushing river will wash away obstacles in its path.
Is Positive EFT safe to use with children?
Positive EFT is the safest form of EFT on the planet. Simply ask the child to tell them what they want, what they like best, and tap on that. You can find a positive for a child they can remember and tap on when they feel bad to lift their mood, too. Positive EFT is easy!
Can you tap on the wrong positives?
No. Everyone can always do with more LOVE, HAPPINESS, POWER, JOY, HEALTH, INTELLIGENCE ... This is one of the great advantages of Positive EFT, you don't have to become a detective or be an aged analyst to ask a person, "What would make you feel better, right now?"
Why are some people so adamant that Positive EFT is a bad thing?
The "trauma only" psychoanalysis entrainment is wide and far reaching. People who have done nothing but chase trauma and dig for the roots of trauma all their life find it inconceivable that there is anything good about positive emotions, or that positive emotions could actually be the antidotes to suffering and misery.
They have never been trained or taught to use positive emotions to help a person evolve and find it hard to think in that different direction - instead of, "What is wrong and why is that?" to "What do we want to achieve and what do we need right now to achieve that?"
One question set takes you into the past, the other into the future.
Both should be known and used as appropriate.
In the meantime, Positive EFT is safe, simple, a wonderful introduction to EFT and modern energy work in general, and makes people feel good.
