How often do you end up focussed on the negative stuff in your life?
Do you wish you had an easy way to focus on the positives instead?
You can easily use positive situations, events, memories etc to create a positive repository for those days when it seems everything is going wrong or the whole world is against you.
We have so many fleeting positive experiences and we just don’t acknowledge them or relish them, so they are lost.
This technique draws heavily on resource states from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). Dr Patricia Carrington (EFT Master) utilised NLP resource states and added tapping to create a very powerful technique.
I love using this technique – it is very easy and quick to do. It is wonderful to have a positive memory bank to tap into whenever you feel you need a bit more positivity in your life.
Here’s what to do:
Think of a positive situation, event, memory etc. It could be eating lunch with your best friend, the time you won a 10k race, feeling a summer breeze whilst sat by a river. Now as you think of that positive memory, turn up the colours, make the pictures brighter, enhance the sounds and really feel those good feelings as if it were happening right now.
Now come up with a statement that sums up your experience, e.g. winning my 1st 10k race, gentle summer breeze caressing my face etc. Now use EFT to tap that experience in. Tap through the points starting at the eyebrow:
Eyebrow: Winning my 1st 10k race
Side of eye: Winning my 1st 10k race
Under eye: Winning my 1st 10k race
Repeat until you finish at the top of your head.
This is now a powerful resource state you can use in the future. Any time you want to re-experience this lovely memory, just tap on the points starting at the eyebrow and repeat your statement, e.g. winning my 1st 10k race, finishing at the top of your head.
It can be really helpful to enhance this process even more by writing down your resource statements in a journal or on flash cards and carrying them with you. Any time you feel you need a boost, get out your journal/cards and tap in those wonderful positive experiences!
I hope you enjoy using Emotional Freedom Techniques in this way – I certainly do!
