The EFT Imagineering


Technique for Endometriosis By Gwyneth Moss


EFT Imagineering is an applica- tion of EFT that I initially developed spe- cifically to use when a physical condition has no pain and is not visible.


When you can feel pain or see something you have somewhere to start tapping so what do you do when the symptom has no pain, or doesn’t hurt right now, or the pain is suppressed by drugs? Where do you start? Well we can tap for the memory of the pain, for live events or changes that were happen- ing when the symptom was first noticed or for our feelings about the symptom and that may open doors to healing. Imagineering is just another way to find those doors and get to a point where you can apply standard EFT.


We can think of the imagination as being an interpreter between bod- yspeak and the verbal language of the mind. I was once hiking with my friend Nancy and as we were going up a steep hill with heavy backpacks Nancy’s knee was hurt- ing. Rather glibly I said “I wonder what your knee is trying to tell you?”, sweating under her load Nancy snapped back “I don’t speak knee!” That was an AhHaa mo- ment for me. Our thinking minds speak a different language from our bodies and can’t comprehend the body messages let alone take the action that the body needs. So the body shouts louder to get attention. And the mind blocks it out. I realised then that we could use imagination as a go between and combine that with tapping.


Here is an account by myself (Gwyneth Moss) and Marga of an EFT Imagineering session. Presenting in Holland I asked for someone to come up for a dem- onstration. Ideally someone with a physical symptom which does not have pain and for the purpose of the demonstration someone with a good visual imagination. (We can use EFT Imagineering for those who’s imagination works in other modalities and that is addressed in the five other im- agineering articles that you can download as a ebook from www. emotional-health.co.uk )


Coming up to the stage, Marga initially experienced some nerv- ousness and palpitations, 3-4 on the scale so we did a few rounds of standard EFT until she felt com- fortable in front of the audience. Marga explained that she has endometriosis but that she has been taking the contraceptive pill to suppress the pain. Endome- triosis is a very painful condition in which the lining of the uterus attaches to surrounding tissues. As she sat there she had no sense of the condition at all. A classic case for Imagineering.


First we do a test run of the imagi- nation taking an imaginery light into a part of the body where the symptom is not present. Here is Marga’s test run: Marga: “I put the light on my finger; my bike LED light. Put in my head through my ear; I go through a kind of yellow tunnel, which is also a slide I enter

the inner part of my head which looks like a factory with many floors. There are a lot of workmen with helmets working on different machines and dashboards. There are noises of machines, not too loud and not too soft. It feels like a neutral place; everybody is doing its job, like they should do”


We do the test run so that both of us can know how her imagination works then I ask her to take the light and her imagination to where the symptom is.


Marga: “I put it on my lower abdo- men. When I enter I see a red-pink- ish mass in the middle, it looks like a human heart. Around it is a black fluffy, slimy mass. I am walking in that. It is all around me; floors/ walls/ceiling and it is changing shapes all the time. I feel my feet being stuck in it. It makes a sucking noise when I try to get my foot out and take a step. It is uncomfortable to be there and it is hot” . So now we do a round of tapping using standard EFT for the imagery she experienced: “Even though there is a heart surrounded by a black slimy mass and its really uncomfortable and hot, I truly and deeply accept myself” I take her exact words and put them into EFT. There is no discussion or interpretation of the imagery – that would be like inter- rogating the go-between. As the practitioner I do not introduce any- thing, I just keep the process going, letting her manage the content and we simply let the tapping do the work. After we tap, I ask her to take the light and her imagination inside again.


Marga: “When I enter again there is more space, it is less hot and uncomfortable. The heart in the middle is still there and the black slimy things have turned into red.
