EFT Not Working ?
Drink Water: Make sure you are drinking water. Its important that you drink water during EFT process. Remember you are working with your body's energy system, and the body needs water to move the energy. The best thing is to have a glass of water by you, and take sips every 2 or 3 rounds. Being dehydrated is the number one reason for EFT not working.
Be Specific: Are you tapping on a specific issue, or is it too big? Dig a bit and see what the feeling, or emotions really is-- anger, or sadness, or frustration, or resentment, and create your set up statement: example: Even though I am angry that ............... Also find specific events, working on I dont have any confidence is too general. Work on specific events; example is "Even though I am too shy to talk to that girl....................
If it is a physical pain working on a general level, such as "all my body hurts", is not the best way to do EFT. Describe the pain, the best you can; for example this shoulder pain that feels like sharp knives stabbing me. So the set up would be "even though I have sharp knives stabbing in my shoulder.............
Change the Set Up Statement: You may need to address the issue from a different angle. So if you try and it does not work, change your words and try it out.
Rating: Make sure you rate the feeling before you start, as often as it improves, but we think nothing changed. Rate first and rate again the exact feeling. If it was anger, then check how angry you feel now. Often there are shifts, and it is now sad, or frustrated. And this is a new tapping to work on.
Tap Till 0: Keep tapping the issue and everything that comes up around it till 0. This may take a while, as other issues and memories come.
Aspects: Watch for other aspects. As you tap you will find a shift in your words, so "I am angry may start to be I am sad, and you might also remember something. This needs to also be rated and tapped.
Psychological Reversal: This is when there is some gain in staying as we are. For this we tap the karate chop point, which deals with psychological reversal.
Also at times energy toxins as perfumes, certain foods can reverse the energy system of individuals. Take a shower, change your clothes, remove electronics from your seating area and then try EFT and see how that goes. If you can not get EFT to work, see a practitioner.
Let Go: At times we think it did not work, but it has worked. Take a break, sleep on it and check with your rating next day.
