For the times when

there is nothing better than keeping it Simple...

by Ann Smith

AAMET Trainer & Advanced Practitioner


Some say this acronym means “Keep it Simple, Sweetie” and some prefer “Keep it Simple, Stupid.” Either way, sometimes keeping it simple with tapping is wise.

If you have searched the web for infor- mation about EFT or other tapping tech- niques, you will uncover a wide variety of styles. Some people tap on the wrists, some don’t. Some use both hands, some use one. Some use positive statements from the get-go while others wait until some of the negative is released. Some use lots of words while others repeat the same words over and over again. Even EFT experts have their own unique styles.

You want to do it right, right? Well, which way IS right?

Remember that EFT is a VERY forgiving technique. No matter which way you tap, it often works, even if someone else thinks you’re doing it “wrong!”

As a practitioner, I know that there are many skills and refine- ments that make tapping more effective, especially when confronting complex issues. But too often we forget that just simple tapping is better than not tapping.

For those times when you can’t do it “right,” if you can’t think of the words, you don’t know what you’re feeling, or you’re with others, just do one of these simple versions of tapping:

Tap on the karate chop point (the fleshy side of either hand) with- out words. Aim for about 20 times or for 10 seconds.

Tap on the karate chop point as you think to yourself, “I accept myself even with my problems.” Tap as you think this at least three times.

Tap on any point that just feels good without words.

Imagine yourself tapping on yourself. If you can, focus on a prob- lem/negative feeling at the same time. Or just imagine tapping without words.

Doing these simple forms of tapping will help you feel better. Period.
