Hi all

I have just started having EFT for (as the title says) Jealousy and Low Self-Esteem issues. I was wondering if anyone else has received EFT for these issues and what results they have had. Or if anyone else has any ideas for it.

These are huge problems in my life, which I know have to do with my childhood but I really want to tackle them.

Hi Purple Peace,

It is really difficult to give general advice on how to apply EFT to a particular problem as we are so individual and everyone requires a unique approach. EFT can indeed be really effective for the issues you describe but it is unlikely to be a quick fix and will require perseverance.

Some of the things you could tap on include:

* feelings/emotions during the moments of intensity
* physical sensations relating to strong emotions
* specific situations (e.g. other people's words and actions, your responses etc)
* past experiences which you feel are relevant or where you believe the problem may originate (if these are traumatic it may be difficult to work through these on your own and it may be good to get some help from an experienced practitioner)
* if you are finding it too overwhelming to tap on yourself, you may find it a little easier if you draw or paint your feelings in whichever way you like, and then tap on the description of the picture you can see in front of you (e.g. "even though there is a green blob with blue swirly things.." etc), instead of going into the actual detail of the situation you are experiencing

You can also generally tap on everyday stresses, whenever these come up - including little things; quantity of tapping does make a difference (as well as the quality of focus and the wording - but if you feel it's difficult to get the latter, just tap anyway, with or without words).

Hope this helps

Masha

Hi Purple,

These challenges can definitely be overcome with EFT, and yes, you are right, it all goes back to childhood. Just keep on tapping, and try to find specific childhood events or feelings that you can tap on, as well as current ones. I've sent you an email or PM too 🙂

Thanks for sharing your experiences with EFT, a friend introduced me to it but I haven't taken it any further yet, good to know it works for people.

Hi Storm Jewel,

Yes EFT certainly works. You are lucky that a friend introduced you to this wonderful therapy.

However, like everything else it will only work if you use it.

You might want to check out some Youtube videos, for example the ones by Brad Yates. You can tap along to these videos while tuning into your own issue. This is known as "Borrowing Benefits".

If anyone has deep seated/traumatic issues, then they might need to seek further advice from an EFT practitioner.

Best Wishes

Peter

I totally agree. Even if this is just one session to check that you're on the right track with EFT 🙂

Eft

There are lots of good videos on YouTube that address specific issues as they guide you through EFT sessions. A couple of good ones are David Childerey, who is English and Brad Yates, who is American. They each have well over a hundred videos that are worth trying. Of course, you can do EFT on your own as well, but it can be nice to follow someone.
