I find it terribly sad that so many have ego problems with using and understanding these techniques. They are simple, profound, and effective IF USED PROPERLY. Roger Callahan is the "godfather" of EFT, and Energy Medicine in general. Here he shares his exciting discoveries as a practical guide for self-help of a multitude of issues confronting the average human. One of the primary steps to using this effectively for yourself is to keep your mind steadily focused on the issue you are attempting to heal. Since most of us have trouble with this type of "one pointed" focus (our minds can bounce around at lightening speed!), we may have trouble getting results, and consider this a failure. It isn't!
As a suggestion to the person with the blushing problem...a focus on the "feeling" that comes before the actual blushing would most likely work. However, it sounds like this person has a lot of trouble with embarassment in general....and may need to work on a multitude of aspects before getting relief. I find it fascinating that the idea of tapping on the accupoints would cause such traumatic embarrassment! I think we need to lighten up....and perhaps deal with the phobia of "feeling like a fool". This is not a proctological exam here. As the old saying goes...let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater! Sometimes the spirit of playfullness works better than taking ourselves too seriously and making unrealistic demands of a technique. As a healing practioner who now uses these techniques regularly, I would say that less than 1 in 100 do not get results.I find that "operator error" is responsible with my clients.At times they forget something...and need to be corrected. Those who aren't happy with the results would do well to find a PERSON TO GUIDE THEM to make sure you are doing the technique properly.Let's consider that exercise can do more harm than good if not done properly. Should we stop exercizing because we once injured ourselves? One interesting side effect for my clients is that the healing can be SO COMPLETE they forget they ever had the problem in the first place! Apex effect! Interesting considering that the problem dominated their thinking 95% of the time prior to treatment.I have tried these techniques on myself, and was able to heal the following issues: poor self image, insomnia, tinnitus, childhood trauma, chronic fatigue, back pain due to injury, to name a few. My advice is DON'T KNOCK IT TILL YOU"VE TRIED IT....AND KNOW YOU"RE DOING IT RIGHT!
