The set-up statement and reminder phrase
In Classical EFT Set-up by saying ‘Even though…… (followed by the problem, e.g. I feel anxious about the interview)….. I deeply love and accept myself/I choose to love and support myself/I choose to be on my side (etc, something self-affirming), whilst tapping on the side of the hand (karate chop point).
Use the reminder phrase, e.g. ‘anxious about the interview’ whilst tapping on each of the following eight points approximately seven times. It usually helps to tap on the same side of the body as the hand you are using (apart from under the arm point, which switches over to the other side of the body).
EB = The eye brow point, at the start of the eyebrow
SE = Side of the eye
UE = Under the eye
UN = Under the nose
CH = Chin, the indentation where the chin meets the softer part of your face leading to the lower lip.
CB = The junction where the sternum (breastbone), collarbone and the first rib meet. To locate it, first place your forefinger on the U-shaped notch at the top of the breastbone (about where a man would knot his tie). From the bottom of the U, move your forefinger down toward the navel 1 inch and then go to the left (or right) 1 inch. This point is abbreviated CB for CollarBone even though it is not on the collarbone (or clavicle) per se. It is at the beginning of the collarbone and we call it the collarbone point because that is a lot easier to say than “the junction where the sternum (breastbone), collarbone and the first rib meet.
UA = Under the arm, for a woman where the bra strap is and for a man about in line with the nipple.
TH = Top of the head (can use all the fingers for this, tap around the crown).
After finishing on the top of the head point you can begin again at the eye brow point (as opposed to the karate chop point, or side of the hand) and tap through the points again.
You can do just one or two ‘rounds’, or for better effect, several rounds. Stop and see. You can also rate the issue you are tapping for before and after tapping, and see if the rating alters. Note down any ‘aspects’ or insights that come up for you from the tapping.
