  4. 4. EFT uses 14 major meridian points, generally at the start or the end of a majorbody meridian. 0 = The Sore Spot - On your chest where you would pin a medal or aHere they are: brooch. Gently push with your fingertips to find an area that feels tender, rather than sore. 1 = Start Of The Eyebrow - Where the bone behind your eyebrow turns into the bridge of your nose. 2 = Corner Of The Eye - On the bone in the corner of your eye. 3 = Under The Eye - On the bone just below your eye, in line with your pupil if you look straight ahead. 4 = Under The Nose - Between you nose and your upper lip 5 = Under The Mouth - In the indentation between your chin and your lower lip 6 = Collarbone - In the angle formed by your collarbone and the breastbone 7 = Under Arm - in line with a mans nipples on the side of the body 8 = Thumb - all finger points are on the side of the finger, in line with the nail bed. 9 = Index Finger, 10 = Middle Finger, 11 = Little Finger 12 = Karate Chop Point - on the side of your hand, roughly in line your life line.

  5. 5. Contacting the Problem To direct the tapping to the required area, we focus the mind on the 0 problem by using a statement of the problem: “I am afraid of heights”. •Choose a statement that rings true to you using words that make sense to you and you alone. The more forthright, direct and truthful you can be, the more profound a change you will experience. •Examples: •I am terrified of the dark •I am so unhappy with my children •I can’t decide what I should do •I am terrified of spiders, etc •Statements for Physical Ailments & Pain •I’ve got that tightness in my neck again •My back’s killing me •That churning in my stomach •This ringing in my ears, etc. www.
  6. 6. The Set Up consists of: 0•Rubbing (stimulating) the sore spot And making the first opening statementFind the sore spot on either side of your chest; rub it round gently and say: “Even though I (insert statement), I deeply and profoundly accept myself. For example if you decided your problem was “My back is killing me, you would say as your set up statement:“Even though my back is killing me, I deeply and profoundly accept myself.” Repeat this three times, rubbing the Sore Spot continuously as you do so. You don’t have to say those exact words. You could say:•I deeply and completely accept myself,•I’m ok,•I love and accept myself …. or any variation that carries this kind of meaning for you.o www.EFTireland.neto
  7. 7. As you tap each point about 7 times, repeat a shortened version of the Set UpStatement which is called the reminder phrase, so if your set up statementwas, 0“Even though my back is killing me, I totally love and accept myself”,… you say the reminder (shortened version) phrase: “My back is killing me”… on each point at the same time as you tap.•Once you know where the points are, the round of tapping (excluding the SetUp) should take no longer than about 2 minutes, unless you feel a strong urgeto stay longer on one particular point which can sometimes happen.
  8. 8. The 9 GamutThis is the middle part in what is sometimes called the “EFT sandwich”. 0•After tapping all the points about 7 times from the top of the eyebrow to the karate chop point, you then do the following whilst tapping continuously onthe Gamut Spot:• Look up from floor to ceiling, and back again without moving your head• Look hard down to the right, and then to the left.• Move your eyes in one complete circle one way, and then back again• Hum Happy Birthday To You (or another tune) for about one bar Count – one, two, three, four, five fast Hum again.• Take a deep breath in and out As you do this keep your focus on the problem Then, repeat the points as before. once more, tapping all the
  9. 9. Testing Your ChangesOn a scale of 10 – 0, 10 being the highest imaginable pain/ upset/ distress/fear/ sadness. discomfort, 0and 0 being completely calm, pain free, tranquil,relaxed and happy, how would you rate what you are experiencing at thismoment?•Use this for emotions as well as for physical sensations•On a scale of 10 – 0•How depressed are you right now?•How painful is your leg?•How bad is your fear of heights?•How distressing is this memory?•How much do you dislike this person?•Before you begin tapping for any subject or problem make a mental note ofyour feelings on a scale of 10 – 0. Then when you have completed a Sandwichtreatment reassess how you feel.•Sometimes, the problem can go from as high as 10 to as low as 0 in a singleSandwich treatment. More often though, there is a gradual change in theseverity of the problem, going from say 8 or 9 after a round of tapping to a 4or 5.•This means that the treatment is beginning to work but there’s more to bedone.
  10. 10. Subsequent Treatment RoundsIf the original set up statement was, for example “Even though I have this 0problem”, and after tapping on “this problem” you find it is not as severeanymore but still noticeable, change the Opening Statement to: “Even though there is still some of this problem remaining”, Or “Even though I still have some of this problem”. When you are down to a rating of “Oh it’s a tiny little bit now”, whichwould be a 2,1, or a half, another round can be done with the openingstatement of, “I want to completely overcome this problem now And I fully and completely accept myself”. And that’s it! There is no need for you to worry about getting it wrong, ALL TAPPING YOU DO IS GOOD FOR YOU Any tapping you do stimulates the meridians, relaxes and calms you, andmakes you feel a little better, even if your opening affirmation didn’t quite“hit the mark”, and the original problem has not yet shifted”.
