Negative Feelings: Solution

The "Emotional Freedom Technique" (EFT) is a simple acupressure technique for releasing negative feelings.

Negative feelings are felt in the body, so one must go to the body to work on or through them.

Negative feelings can be released right now with this video. Tapping can be used to easily clear the chakras (energy centers in the body). This is a very fast, reliable, and easy-to-learn method for clearing chakras inspired by Nicola Quinn.


Q: How hard should I tap?
A: Tap lightly, just enough to feel it. The purpose of tapping is to bring attention to different parts of the body. It actually works if one just imagines tapping -- as long as attention is drawn to the right points.

Q: How can I be sure I am finding the right points?
A: Use two fingers to make sure the points are covered. Sometimes the point will "feel" right, as if there were a slight indentation on the skin or the point is particularly sensitive. Since it's all connected, one needn't be 100% accurate.

Q: You've missed points Gary Craig teaches!
A: Yes. Feel free to tap those too. I left them out to keep the videos simple, and it seems to work fine without them. If you find this video doesn't work for you, try tapping the additional points -- around the top-middle of the head and just under the armpit.

Q: Is the sequence important?
A: No. The points can be tapped in any order. In fact, one need only tap one or two of the points for each particular feeling. It's just that one has no easy way of knowing which point that is. So one may as well tap them all.

Q: I am a skeptic! / You are a charlatan!
A: Thanks. Tapping is perfectly explainable scientifically. But it goes beyond most people's understanding. It really does work though. The best way to prove it to yourself is to try it and watch negative feelings disappear.
