Many people ask this when they are new to EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). The answer is no. There are many ways of doing EFT and it really is a very flexible technique. The best answer is – experiment with what works best for YOU!
You can try speaking normally. If you are in public (e.g. feeling stressed at your desk at work) you can tap quietly whilst repeating your setup phrase and reminder phrases just in your mind. You can even just tap on your Karate chop point or your fingertips under your desk if you don’t want anyone to see you tapping!
If you are at home and you are not getting results you can try shouting out your setup & reminder phrases and really putting some emphasis into them.
You can whisper them and even hum them! EFT really is that flexible. What you want to do is figure out which method works best for you. Or use the method that is appropriate to where you are. So you could do the silent method at work and speak normally at home.
I use a combination of methods myself, depending on the situation.
Have fun with trying out these different methods. If you’d like some help with EFT, please email me for a free initial consultation.
