hey peeps

had my first EFT session a month ago with a practitioner but stopped doing it by myself two weeks ago because the feelings been getting to intense while tapping.
i tried out faster-eft on youtube and im thinking maybe the set up statement maybe made me feel more intense. is there any set up statements that can calm and relax me?
ive been havin panic attacks and im scared 2 try it again.

Hi William,

I personally would recommend the standard version of EFT rather than the "Faster EFT".
The standard affirmation would be "Even though [describe the problem concisely but specifically here], I accept myself" (or, the original Californian version, "I deeply and completely accept myself") - or, if the self-acceptance phrase does not suit you for whatever reason, it could be anything positive about you (and NOT about the problem) - for example, "I'm ok", "I am a good person", "I am creative", "I have a good sense of humour", etc.

However, in general when using any of the "tapping therapies" it is not uncommon for emotion to intensify temporarily before subsiding - the most important thing is to continue tapping and not to stop when the intensity rises - if you persevere, it will be relieved fairly quickly. Some people get frightened by that temporary rise in emotion and stop tapping, which is a common mistake.

Best of luck

Masha

And another important point...

is there any set up statements that can calm and relax me?

The setup statements need to be in your own words as that allows them to have personal meaning to you. One person's setup statement may not be suitable for someone else as it may have different connurtations for each person.

So, looking at your words above, you would be looking for something along the lines of "even though I'm not calm or relaxed..."

Hi William

As Masha says the intensity of your feelings can increase - and it is possible to tap through them, and certainly with Energylz comments about your wording.

And, looking at your wording, I would look at saying a set-up that might include "Even though my feelings about ..... (your problem) are getting more intense I STILL accept (or preferably, deeply and completely accept) myself as I am."

Also "Even though I have had panic attacks about ..... (whatever it is - be very specific in stating the situation) I accept myself as I am."

I would certainly look to seeing a practitioner again if there are any issues still coming up - there are all sorts of mechanisms of putting stressful situations into a mental video or film or putting them a long way away from you where you can cope with the feelings, and then as it becomes more comfortable allowing them to move closer - but this is best done when guided by a practitioner.

You can also work with a practitioner over the phone or with Skype so you can speak to anyone, even if you cannot physically visit them.

Hope you get sorted soon.
