A: I always recommend attending a live workshop or training to learn EFT so you are in the hands of highly trained and experienced practitioners and presenters as you learn this wonderful tool. EFT Universe maintains a list of trainings and workshops around the world, and all trainers listed are approved.
Because we have such an amazing technological world now, many people come across videos teaching EFT on the Internet (e.g., YouTube). There are some excellent videos out there and some that are perhaps not so great. EFT works best when we are very specific about what we are tapping on; sometimes a video online does not allow you to do that. It is the difference between tapping on “I feel anxious” versus tapping on “I feel anxious because my boss just called me for a random meeting tomorrow and I don’t know what it is about.” The second statement is a lot more specific and tapping will work more effectively on this, as it is specific to the person and to the nature of the anxiousness.
When you learn how to use EFT, I recommend you begin using it regularly for the best effect. Like any habit, EFT builds over time and can have generalizing effects. It’s easiest to establish a routine if you associate tapping with something you do every day, like brushing your teeth or having your morning coffee. If you do just five minutes of tapping at the same time each day, over time you will have addressed many issues in your life. It might be that you just tap on a feeling from the day before, a feeling in the moment (e.g., feeling rushed in the morning!), or something you are working on over time (e.g., a pattern in your life such as why you procrastinate).
EFT Universe has a range of tutorial videos that have been created for the viewer to learn the skill as a newcomer.
It also has tap-along videos on different topics.
