Make a list of every bothersome specific event you can remember. If you
can’t find at least 50 you’re probably not trying. Many people find
While making your list, you may find that some events don’t seem to
cause you current discomfort. List them anyway. The fact that you
remembered them suggests they need to be more fully resolved.
Give each specific event a title–as though it were a mini-movie.
Again, be specific. Examples: I stole Joe’s sandwich. I nearly slipped
and fell into the Grand Canyon. Mrs. Smith told me was stupid. Mom
locked me in a closet for two days. My third grade class laughed at my
When the list is complete, pick out the most bothersome specific movies.
Apply EFT to each one until you either laugh about the incident or just
can’t think about it anymore. Be sure to keep after each event until
its intensity is at a zero. Then apply EFT to the next worst movie, and
Do at least one movie (specific event) per day–preferably three. It
only takes minutes per day. If you keep at it for three months, you will
have resolved 90 to 270 specific events. You will notice how your body
feels better. Maybe your blood pressure is decreased and your breathing
is easier. Note how your “threshold for getting upset” is much
lower. And how your relationships are better and your “therapy
issues” don’t seem to be there anymore. Revisit some of those
specific events and notice how previously intense movies have faded into
asks you to consciously notice these things because, unless you do, the
quality healing you will have undergone will seem so subtle that you may
not notice it. You may even dismiss it saying, “Oh, well, it was never
much of a problem anyway.” This happens repeatedly with EFT and thus
he brings it to your awareness.
If you are taking medications, you may feel the need to discontinue
them. Please do so ONLY under a qualified physician’s advice.
few minutes a day will make a monumental difference in your work
performance, relationships, health and your quality of life. But only if
you put the idea into practice.
Positive Side Effects
As you work through the events from your past in order of
intensity, you may not be zeroing in right away on the exact causes of
the issue from which you most want relief. However, there will be
positive results along the way, and if you notice them, you will know
that personal peace is starting to emerge in your life.
EFT results, no matter how we find them, are sometimes very subtle,
and it is easy to overlook them or attribute them to your natural
growth process. To help us see the changes as they are happening,
it’s time to make a second list – one for anything in your life
that could stand some improvement. Common examples are as follows:
Sleeping habits - quality of sleep or hours per night
Eating habits – junk food cravings, vegetable intake, sugar or
Other Cravings – coffee, cigarettes, wine/beer
Level of stress related to work
Frustration in traffic
Relationships - spouse, children, in laws, relatives, co-workers
Muscle tension or pain/Flexibility
Propensity to laugh or smile
Anything in your life can start changing for the better as you
clear out the old disruptions. Once you have your “wish list” for
any positive changes that you would welcome, find a way to evaluate
each one before you start tapping. Maybe you write down the hours of
sleep you are getting on average, or the cups of coffee you have each
day, length of time you can be on your feet without pain, or the level
of frustration/emotional pain (0-10) that you feel in any particular
As you tap through your events, keep checking in with this list and
keep track of all the items. Some may shift right away, others may
improve later, and you may notice other positive changes that
weren’t even on the list. By using both of these lists in tandem, it
is much easier to keep going with a process that may be on the longer
side for some people.
Can you imagine what it would feel like to truly be at peace with
everything that has ever happened in your life? How about being at
peace with half of it? Even that would make an enormous difference for
most people. Imagine how different the world would be if everyone
cleared out the garbage from their past. Not only would we all feel
better physically and emotionally, we would be able to understand each
other and feel compassion without all of the issues in the way.
Thoughts on Other Uses Of The EFT Personal Peace Procedure
The EFT Personal Peace Procedure here is NOT a substitute for
quality EFT training nor is it a substitute for quality help from a
skillful EFT practitioner or qualified physician. Rather, it is a
Tapping tool that, properly applied, is capable of wide ranging relief
(quality training or quality assistance will add to its
effectiveness). Its simplicity and far reaching effectiveness give it
candidacy as a mandatory method for anyone seeking help for even the
most difficult of problems.
It may be used:
As "homework" between sessions with a physician or
therapist. This is certain to accelerate and deepen the healing
As a daily Tapping procedure to clear out a lifetime of
accumulated emotional debris. This can enhance self-image, reduce
self-doubt and provide a profound sense of freedom.
As a means to eliminate a major contributor (if not the sole
cause) of a serious disease. Somewhere within one's Specific
Events are those angers, fears and traumas that are manifesting as
disease. By addressing them all, you will likely cover those
responsible for the disease. Always consult qualified
physicians regarding your use of EFT for physical issues.
As a useful substitute for finding core issues. If you
neutralize all the specific issues you will have automatically
included core issues.
As a means for consistent relaxation.
To become an example to others as to what is possible.
A few minutes per day with the EFT Personal Peace Procedure can
make a monumental difference in school performance, relationships,
health and our quality of life. We hope this common sense
Tapping process becomes a worldwide routine.
