Other Popular Variations on EFT

Energy EFT: Silvia Hartmann is well known for her own more energy-based, spiritual-minded version of EFT. She is also responsible for the development of EmoTrance and Positive EFT. Her EFT, though in some respects quite different from Gary's Official/Classic EFT, is worth the exploration.

FasterEFT: With a greater part of his technique being based in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis, Robert Smith, has created a very simple and powerful version of an already revolutionary technique. His philosophy is very different which changes his application and this appeals to some people. He has created hundreds of videos on numerous subjects which are all available for free on YouTube. Because of this, his variation has very quickly gained popularity.

Just a caution: Keep your wits about you. Robert tends to consider HIS version the best version and his way the only worthy way. He has been known in the past to not always be respectful when dealing with traumatic issues, often putting the blame on the client for not healing and using dangerous techniques that can and have retraumatized people. Please listen to your own inner promptings and if anything that is suggested by him or one of his trainees feels off or too much for you, DON'T do it.

Optimal EFT: This is Gary Craig's new version of EFT. There is no tapping involved. This is more of an energy healing technique that he is presently developing. Having lived a very intense spiritual experience (similar to an out-of-body experience or a near-death experience without the death), Gary has known for many years that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. From what I understand, he is now attempting to find a way to bring this spirituality forward to heal people so that each person can connect to their very own personal spiritual experience and live more and more in that place of divinity.

Positive EFT

Positive EFT: This form of EFT, also from Silvia Hartmann, is not generally used to work through difficulties but more to keep our minds and energies aimed toward the future and the positive outcomes that we want in our lives. This type of tapping has us choosing a positive word or concept and tapping to see what comes up. As above, the breathing is important.

Sites with Articles on How People Use EFT

Kelly's Articles: I've written a number of articles which you can find on my Articles page.

Official EFT: There are full-length videos where Gary helps clients to tap using Skype on Emofree.com. Just listening to him work can give you a lot of insight into how to get the best results using EFT. He has over 3000 articles on the site as well, the very first EFT library.

EFT Free: This site was created as a place for EFTers to publish and read articles and other information related to practicing EFT during a period when it seemed that Emofree was going to disappear. It didn't but they have collected a good number of interesting articles over the years. They will be merging these articles onto the AAMET website shortly. There is a search engine and a list of categories right on the Home Page.

EFT Universe: This site also has a good number of articles on a variety of subjects. You can start your search here with some suggested categories but, if you don't find what you are looking for, you can go to the Search Page and type in your own keywords.

Attracting Abundance: Carol Look is a very highly respected EFT Master and this is her website. Over the years, she has written many a good article.

MasteringEFT: Patricia Carrington is an EFT Master who is best known for her very popular way of adding a positive note to EFT using her Choices Method. She has written a fair number of articles on the subject of EFT.

The AMT: This site has many case studies and other types of articles related to using Energy EFT and Positive EFT, Silvia Hartmann's own particular brands of EFT. Some of the wording and terminology is different from Classic EFT practice and may be confusing.

SelfGrowth.com: This site has many articles but they are in no particular order. You can type your subject or keyword in the Google search bar at the top. Remember to put in EFT as one of the keywords as well or you'll end up with articles on your subject but not just those related to EFT.

Classic EFT Certifications

Other EFT Related Trainings

The AMT (The Association for Meridian & Energy Therapies): Silvia Hartmann has created her own version of EFT based more on the energy and spiritual aspects of the technique. Many Classic EFTers have this version also under their belts and some prefer it. It's a question of personal taste but my suggestion would always be to learn Classic EFT first and add the variants once you've mastered the basics. This is my opinion and it's biased by my being a Classic EFTer.

FasterEFT: Robert Smith, as mentioned above, has created a very simple and powerful version of EFT. Another tool in your toolbox. He has his own certification process.

Matrix Reimprinting: This particular technique uses EFT in "the Matrix". That is to say, a previous version of the self (called the ECHO) is visited by the present-day self in a negative memory. This earlier self is taught to tap. Listening to the wants and needs of this previous, often younger, often traumatized, version of the self and allowing it use EFT directly can bring about profound changes.

Simple Energy Techniques (SET): Two of the best-known Australian EFT Practitioners, Steve Wells and David Lake, have developped a version of EFT that is worth learning. It's a form of "continuous tapping" and eliminates an issue some people have with EFT: "I don't know what words to say". Wells and Lake teach that the words are not important. Any time, any place, with intention, with concentration, with words or with none of the above - just tap. Your general sense of well-being will rise.

EFT Videos

 

Interesting DVD Sets ($)

Gwyneth Moss: She has a set of case studies where she taps for different types of issues with various people. Watching masterful practitioners at work is always an eye-opener. The DVDs can be bought together or separately.

I highly recommend her "Imagineering" DVDs. It's a technique that she developed to deal with physical pain that wasn't present at the time of a session, however, I find it to be a powerful way to use metaphor to deal with almost anything going on in the body at any time.

Jaqui Crooks: We don't realize how our birth and our ancestors are still affecting us today. Jaqui has a number of useful DVDs but the ones I recommend most highly are "Transform Your Past" and the two on Rebirthing yourself and your child. Great stuff! Shipping from the UK.

Learn How to Tap: Karin Davidson has recorded a number of DVDs on how to use EFT on many subjects (see the list in the menu on the right). Lots of useful packages with case studies here. The DVDs I would especially recommend are those hosting EFT Masters. It's always powerful to watch an expert do her/his stuff.

 

Online Videos (FREE)

Please take into account the following: A general tapping script/video that invites you to follow along, is very unlikely to give you complete healing for your personal issues. Your life's events and their different aspects must often be dealt with specifically, one at a time, to achieve true/permanent relief. Tapping scripts and videos are generally too global in nature to achieve that end but they can give you an idea of how EFT works and allow you to experience a certain level of release.

A NOTE ABOUT TRAUMA: Please know that if you are dealing with trauma (yours or someone else's) it is very important to make sure that you tread carefully. To be sure the person remains safe, trauma work should always be done with an experienced healthcare professional or EFT practitioner. Ensure that the proper external resources are available in case of severe abreaction.

There are so many videos about EFT that I can't begin to direct you to the ones that will interest you specifically so I won't even try. Other than the intro video that I have on my EFT Page, I suggest that you hunt around for yourself.

Probably the easiest place to start your search is YouTube.com, of course. Suggested keywords would be: EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques or Technique, Tapping. You can further narrow down your search results by adding to the above keywords an issue or emotion keyword such as: "how to", "weight loss" or "fear of heights".

Official EFT: I can only suggest that you go systematically through the very thorough tutorial offered for FREE by the founder of EFT, Gary Craig. On his website, Emofree.com, there are full-length videos categorized as "Coaching Libraries" where Gary and/or his daughter, Tina, helps clients to tap on their different issues. Just watching either of them work and listening to their language can give you a lot of insight into how to get the best results using EFT.

EFT Hub: Gary Williams created this resource to help people learn and use EFT to make their lives better. He is constantly adding video interviews with well-known, knowledgable EFTers. Well worth a visit.

FasterEFT: This is the main website for one of the most well-known and popular variations of tapping. Robert Smith has literally hundreds of videos on YouTube. His philosophy in applying tapping as well as some of the points he uses are quite different from Gary Craig's original teachings but this technique is also very powerful and effective. One can never have too many tools in one's healing toolbox.

Tapping.com: This site has some basic videos that show how to tap but I consider them a bit too elementary for deep work.

EFT Audios / Podcasts

Kelly's FREE audio downloads: I have two short audio files that you can download for FREE if you sign up for my monthly newsletter. They are both tap-alongs: review your "to-do list" in the morning and relax before bed as you tap the end-of-day routine. Please take advantage of them.

The sites below all have FREE podcasts or audio files that you can listen to at your leisure. There are lots of interviews with well-known EFTers and many different subjects. Some of the sites have the option to subscribe so you won't miss any future shows. There's something for everyone!

EFT Related Films

The Tapping Solution
The Tapping Solution: The Tapping Solution is a documentary that follows a group of people who come together for a weekend to learn and apply tapping. Supported by highly qualified EFT Practitioners and their team, the participants explore their issues (fibromyagia, memories of war, loss of a loved one in an auto accident, etc.). As the weekend advances, we learn more about these people and we see the changes begin. By the end, the results that some achieve are remarkable. You are encouraged to tap along and "borrow benefits". This will give you results on some of your own issues.

Operation: Emotional Freedom: This documentary film follows a number of war vets who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through learning and applying EFT to their emotionally traumatic memories, some dating back to the Vietnam War. The transformations are awesome to watch!

Kenya: Until Hope is Found: In this documentary about healing deep trauma in Kenya, at about the 36th minute, you will see the film-maker himself, Patrick Mureitha, share FasterEFT with the healing group he is filming. The next day, he shows the reactions of some of the participants after some have used the tapping. The testimonials are moving. Very interesting film on ways for people to heal from emotional trauma in parts of Africa where they have few psychotherapeutic resources and no money to pay for them even if they did exist. Inspires great hope!
