23 Some of you may have heard of EMDR. You might be wondering how EFT is like, or not like, EMDR. Lets answer that question right now.

24 How is EFT like, or not like, EMDR EMDR… EMDR… stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing In 1987, Francis Shapiro discovered quite accidentally that bilateral stimulation could assist the brain in processing trauma.

25 Bilateral Stimulation There are a number of ways to create bilateral stimulation within the brain. There are a number of ways to create bilateral stimulation within the brain.

26 EFT VS. EMDR Alike? Different? You might say, they are both a little strange, at least in the way we normally think about healing.

27 EFT and EMDR They are quite different in how they work within the body, They are quite different in how they work within the body, and yet, the results they achieve may look very much the same. They may be thought of as spokes of the same wheel. They may be thought of as spokes of the same wheel.

28 How EMDR works: EMDR works by activating the clients information processing system through bilateral stimulation. It involves an 8 – step process* and a trained clinician is expected to guide the process to facilitate a successful reprocessing of a traumatic event.

It involves an 8 – step process* and a trained clinician is expected to guide the process to facilitate a successful reprocessing of a traumatic event.

29 How does EMDR Work? EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following a successful EMDR session, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings when a traumatic event is brought to mind. You still remember what happened, but the strong emotional charge attached to the event is dulled or removed entirely.

40 Stress Hormones When the body/brain suffers a trauma, or even the memory of a trauma, it releases stress hormones into the brain… adrenaline and cortisol. When the body/brain suffers a trauma, or even the memory of a trauma, it releases stress hormones into the brain… adrenaline and cortisol.

41 Stress Hormones Cortisol is referred to as the stress hormone because it is released in high quantities during the flight or fight response. Cortisol is referred to as the stress hormone because it is released in high quantities during the flight or fight response.

42 Cortisol Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as: Impaired cognitive performance Impaired cognitive performance Suppressed thyroid function Suppressed thyroid function Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia Decreased bone density Decreased bone density

43 Cortisol Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream can produce… Decrease in muscle tissue Decrease in muscle tissue Higher blood pressure Higher blood pressureblood pressureblood pressure Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body,immunity slowed wound healing, and other health consequences slowed wound healing, and other health consequences

44 Today We Life High Stress Lives Stress has become almost a normal and accepted part of our lives. Stress has become almost a normal and accepted part of our lives. Almost universally, people acknowledge the high stress levels they live with every day. Almost universally, people acknowledge the high stress levels they live with every day.

45 Heres Some Very Good News… Research has demonstrated that tapping is able to dramatically and quickly lower cortisol levels in the body. Research has demonstrated that tapping is able to dramatically and quickly lower cortisol levels in the body.

46 Epigenetics The field of epigenetics is also changing our understanding of how the body works. The field of epigenetics is also changing our understanding of how the body works.

50 What does EFT have to do with Epigenetics? Tapping is an excellent way to get at and release the underlying belief structures that limit us… and now we know… can actually define us at a cellular level.

51 So, its not just our energy system thats impacted by tapping… Its the limbic system in our brain … that controls the flight or fight response.

54 But… Lets just imagine for a moment that YOU are the expert on YOU! Lets just imagine for a moment that YOU are the expert on YOU! REALLY - REALLY - How can anyone know YOU like YOU do???

55 Maybe… You can take a much more active role in your own healing and wellness than you might imagine, or than you currently do. You can take a much more active role in your own healing and wellness than you might imagine, or than you currently do.

56 How EFT Helps and Heals How are those blockages How are those blockages in our energy system in our energy system produced? Where do produced? Where do they come from? they come from? Well, believe it or not, they come from our thought patterns. Well, believe it or not, they come from our thought patterns.

57 How EFT Helps and Heals Remember what Gary Craig said: Remember what Gary Craig said: Negative thoughts or memories create negative emotions which result in a disturbance, or blockage, in our energy system. Negative thoughts or memories create negative emotions which result in a disturbance, or blockage, in our energy system.

58 But Im a Positive Thinker! We have somewhere between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day… We have somewhere between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day… Yet, only 7 percent of our thoughts rise to a conscious level. Yet, only 7 percent of our thoughts rise to a conscious level.

59 Conscious vs Unconscious Fully 93 percent of our thoughts each day remain at an unconscious level, where they are not assessed, edited, or judged for their merit. Fully 93 percent of our thoughts each day remain at an unconscious level, where they are not assessed, edited, or judged for their merit.

60 Sooooooo… If only 7 percent of our thoughts are at a conscious level, then its the 93%, or all the unconscious thoughts, that are running the show of our lives most of the time. If only 7 percent of our thoughts are at a conscious level, then its the 93%, or all the unconscious thoughts, that are running the show of our lives most of the time.

61 And… That can be a problem. Because its the way we think about things that creates our experience of them. That can be a problem. Because its the way we think about things that creates our experience of them.

62 What happened? Why do I see it this way? Up until the age of six, you were like a small but powerful computer… Up until the age of six, you were like a small but powerful computer…

65 No, not you? No, we didnt all live with mean, awful people bent on damaging us. No, we didnt all live with mean, awful people bent on damaging us.

66 True, some of us might have. Many of us grew up with well-intentioned, loving families, …were educated by caring teachers…and yet we STILL felt hurt, pain, and rejection.

67 What this is Not! Its Not about finding someone to blame for the limiting beliefs you have about yourself today. Its Not about finding someone to blame for the limiting beliefs you have about yourself today. And, please understand this… And, please understand this…

68 Youre In Good Company There are very few of us who dont have beliefs about ourselves that hold us back from realizing our full potential in some way. You are in good company on this!

69 So, here it is…. Those beliefs that you downloaded as a young child, that said something to you about yourself…. that defined you and created a pattern of limiting beliefs about yourself and your capabilities, and the possibility of being able to fulfill your dreams….. Those beliefs continue to inform your decision making and your beliefs about yourself TODAY!

70 Why Tap??? Why Tap??? Its not what happened to you in the past thats the problem – its how you think about yourself today as a result of that event. Its not what happened to you in the past thats the problem – its how you think about yourself today as a result of that event.

71 When you tap… The details of the story dont change, but the thinking/the perception/the emotional charge the story holds for you, does. The details of the story dont change, but the thinking/the perception/the emotional charge the story holds for you, does.

73 Traumatization is an inside job.

74 Why does it matter? Whether you believe something negative, or something positive about yourself as a result of the things that have happened in your life, youll continue to have experiences Whether you believe something negative, or something positive about yourself as a result of the things that have happened in your life, youll continue to have experiences that support that belief. that support that belief.

75 The thoughts you put out attract experiences, people, etc, that are an exact match. The thoughts you put out attract experiences, people, etc, that are an exact match.

76 Why does it matter? Sometimes things happen and we say, Sometimes things happen and we say, Why is this happening to me? Why is this happening to me?

77 The more productive question might be: What am I believing about myself to have this experience in my life? The more productive question might be: What am I believing about myself to have this experience in my life?

78 Lets tap on Limiting Beliefs

79 Those small t traumas We are more likely to confuse the small stuff – the small t traumas – We are more likely to confuse the small stuff – the small t traumas – with who we really are.

80 Many people come to see Big T trauma as something that strengthens them… They survived it! Many people come to see Big T trauma as something that strengthens them… They survived it!

81 When you tap…How do these things show up? You may notice memories, events, or moments from long ago, suddenly popping up in your mind. You may notice memories, events, or moments from long ago, suddenly popping up in your mind.

82 Youll be tapping on anger, and youll remember something… something that doesnt feel at all related to what youre tapping on right now… Youll be tapping on anger, and youll remember something… something that doesnt feel at all related to what youre tapping on right now… And, yet??? And, yet???

83 Dont be too quick to dismiss those thoughts or ideas as not relevant. Dont be too quick to dismiss those thoughts or ideas as not relevant.

84 Why People People Dont Dont Heal….. Heal…..

85 Surprisingly… It may be easier to hold on to the anger than to bump up against some of the issues that may arise if you really examine it. It may be easier to hold on to the anger than to bump up against some of the issues that may arise if you really examine it.

86 Bear in mind Resistance is feedback It doesnt necessarily have to get in the way of growth. Resistance is feedback It doesnt necessarily have to get in the way of growth.

87 Reaching for Congruence Congruence is whats critical: What you state to yourself and the world out here, in consciousness, has to match what youre telling yourself on the inside, unconsciously.

88 The unconscious mind has a mind of its own… The language of the unconscious is where all change occurs. The language of the unconscious is where all change occurs. It needs to be able It needs to be able to trust that its to trust that its safe to change. safe to change.

89 For some, the spiritual answer to being wronged is to Forgive and Forget. For some, the spiritual answer to being wronged is to Forgive and Forget.

90 Trauma (undischarged) is a lot closer to the Trauma (undischarged) is a lot closer to the rock in the shoe. You have to bring the unconscious to the conscious level in order to heal it. You have to bring the unconscious to the conscious level in order to heal it.

91 No one is stuck – theyre afraid. Everybody wants change, but nobody wants anything to be different. Everybody wants change, but nobody wants anything to be different.

92 What will change? If I address this, what else will have to change? If I address this, what else will have to change? I might have to learn to say No, or to be more visible in the world, etc. I might have to learn to say No, or to be more visible in the world, etc.

93 What pushes your buttons? Things that trigger you: Things that trigger you: You have to have a template inside of you for it to bother you (now). You have to have a template inside of you for it to bother you (now).

94 Your triggers… You wouldnt be worried about being called stupid (or moody, or incompetent, etc.) if you didnt already have a template for it inside you. You wouldnt be worried about being called stupid (or moody, or incompetent, etc.) if you didnt already have a template for it inside you.

95 So, the question to ask is: Do I remember a time in the past when I was made to feel that way…? Do I remember a time in the past when I was made to feel that way…?

96 Do I remember a time when someone I cared about made me feel stupid, or called me stupid, or treated me like I didnt know anything? Do I remember a time when someone I cared about made me feel stupid, or called me stupid, or treated me like I didnt know anything? If so, thats important tapping material. If so, thats important tapping material.

97 Symptoms as Blessings Appreciate your symptoms….believe it or not, they are trying to help you. Appreciate your symptoms….believe it or not, they are trying to help you. They are talking to you, They are talking to you, and they will continue to talk, louder and louder, until you hear them.

98 Remember: Remember: This problem was once a solution. This problem was once a solution. Once we pop a symptom then we have something to work on, to tap on. Once we pop a symptom then we have something to work on, to tap on. What was going on in your life before, or at the time, your symptoms came on? What was going on in your life before, or at the time, your symptoms came on?

99 People often ask… Am I saying the right words when I tap? Am I saying the right words when I tap?

100 There are no Wrong words! If it helps, write down all the negative self- talk that fills your head on the subject… THOSE are the words and phrases you need to tap on. If it helps, write down all the negative self- talk that fills your head on the subject… THOSE are the words and phrases you need to tap on. And, be as And, be as specific and detailed as possible.

101 For example… Ill never be a success. Ill never be a success. Im no good at this kind of thing. Im no good at this kind of thing. People would reject me if they knew… People would reject me if they knew… Im a total failure at _____________. Im a total failure at _____________. Bad things always Bad things always happen to me. happen to me.

102 Henry Ford said… Whether you believe you can, or you believe you cant, or you believe you cant, youre right!

103 And, remember… Positive thinking is great, but Positive thinking is great, but it only exists at the conscious level. it only exists at the conscious level.

104 You have to clear the negative/limiting beliefs you hold about yourself at the unconscious level. at the unconscious level.

105 Tapping Strategies The Tell the Story technique: The Tell the Story technique: Just tell the story of what happened, and tap as you do. (Keep answering the question: And and tap as you do. (Keep answering the question: And then what happened?) happened?)

106 Ask What if statements as you tap: Ask What if statements as you tap: What if I decided to accept myself? What if I believed it would all work out?

107 Tapping on Pain Working with Pain: A way to view the pain: My body is trying to talk to me – and Im not listening. My body is trying to talk to me – and Im not listening. What is my body trying to tell me? What is my body trying to tell me? My body is pretty smart, and Im ignoring it. My body is pretty smart, and Im ignoring it. If the pain in your knee was trying to tell you something – what do you think it would be? If the pain in your knee was trying to tell you something – what do you think it would be? If my pain was an emotion, what would it be? If my pain was an emotion, what would it be?

108 Remember: Whats your Number? But first…before you begin… But first…before you begin… On a scale of 0 – 10, with ten being the highest level of distress possible and 0 being no distress at all, how distressing does this event/memory/thought feel when you think about it now? On a scale of 0 – 10, with ten being the highest level of distress possible and 0 being no distress at all, how distressing does this event/memory/thought feel when you think about it now? Its important to determine this so you can gauge the effectiveness of your tapping. Its important to determine this so you can gauge the effectiveness of your tapping.

109 To begin… Begin with a couple of rounds where you really explore and acknowledge your negative feelings about the issue. Begin with a couple of rounds where you really explore and acknowledge your negative feelings about the issue.

110 If you could choose… Then…you can suggest a transition, another way to think about it as you tap. How would you like to feel about this?

111 I choose… …to see this situation as part of my growth. …to see this situation as part of my growth. …to accept that I dont have to be perfect. …to accept that I dont have to be perfect. …to see this person as trying to help me. …to see this person as trying to help me. …to feel confident and competent in this situation. …to feel confident and competent in this situation.

112 I am willing… Even though I feel so much anxiety about this… Even though I feel so much anxiety about this… - I am willing to see it in a calm and stress-free way. - I am willing to see it as helping me. - I am willing to be calm and relaxed every time this occurs.

113 Tap before something… It helps to tap in advance of something… It helps to tap in advance of something… An event An event A presentation A presentation A social/family gathering A social/family gathering An interaction with a person/client/colleague that you feel might be stressful An interaction with a person/client/colleague that you feel might be stressful This can instill positive energy that will create a much less stressful and more successful experience.

114 After youve tapped… And, youve taken a deep breath and let it out sloooowly: Now…ask yourself… What do I notice? Whats coming up for me now? (There are no right or wrong answers here. Just notice.) Now…ask yourself… What do I notice? Whats coming up for me now? (There are no right or wrong answers here. Just notice.) What thoughts, if any, has the tapping triggered for you? What thoughts, if any, has the tapping triggered for you?

115 After youve tapped… In the end: You have to test your work! In the end: You have to test your work!

116 After youve tapped… You have to look at the issue youve tapped on…tell the story again, or picture the situation again. You have to look at the issue youve tapped on…tell the story again, or picture the situation again. Test your emotions, your feelings on the topic. Test your emotions, your feelings on the topic. Where are you now? (Scale of 0 – 10) Where are you now? (Scale of 0 – 10)

117 Aha moments? Write down your Aha moments…those ideas/thoughts that come forth at the end of a round of tapping, if you dont plan to tap on them right then. Write down your Aha moments…those ideas/thoughts that come forth at the end of a round of tapping, if you dont plan to tap on them right then.

118 Aha Moments They can be valuable gems of wisdom as to where the trail leads…what you should tap on next. But if you dont tap on them immediately, they can easily get lost in your unconscious again. They can be valuable gems of wisdom as to where the trail leads…what you should tap on next. But if you dont tap on them immediately, they can easily get lost in your unconscious again. It happens to me all the time.
