Why I Disagree With My EFT Hero And What You Can Do

Positive words about EFT for the whole EFT community

I often see bitter and angry comments (no doubt from people who were as starry-eyed as I once was), about anything that is not Gold Standard or Optimal EFT. This is why I ask for open minds, open hearts, and more positivity.


It is all too easy for people to attack what is out there that brings people to EFT. Take The Tapping Solution, for example. Nick Ortner was criticized very heavily when he first started it.


I too, was one of the people who read Gary Craig's verbal attacks on it, and I took his word as "gospel truth", and went on publicly attacking Nick Ortner's work, just like the comment above. By the way, I will always be grateful to Gary for bringing EFT to the world, and for all the wonderful good work he does; that will never change. But one day later, I started to wonder if it was the right thing, if my hero could be non-human and never make a mistake or error in judgement.


After The Tapping Solution's first event, all of a sudden, I was getting more people coming forward for EFT one-to-one proper practitioner sessions and workshops run exactly as Gary Craig wanted in those days. So many people benefitted as a result, and to this day, I still get miracles with clients that have just seen the latest Tapping Solution event, and decided to come for sessions or a workshop. Ideally, they do both and I see with delight their lives unfold in front of me. All because of a script that didn't work for them but convinced them that there was more possible to achieve. My mind has been opened to new possibilities, and now I do the AMT Energy EFT as well as Classical EFT and my own unique style, which can be pretty close to Optimal EFT, which is actually Reiki with SUDS or SUE scales and specificity added. Every system of EFT out there is now competing with others, so every system, including FasterEFT, Energy EFT, and Classical EFT, is always striving to improve.

With thanks to Gary Craig, the originator, whom I love unconditionally, just like I love everyone, for bringing this debate to the foreground, so we can all open our eyes, tap, and then listen to our hearts. I do not agree with his opinions about some other forms of EFT nor about well-written EFT scripts that encourage the newcomer to try EFT, the poor, and those who have no access to a practitioner but do have some limited internet access; they can have something to help them interpret Gary's teachings. Gary's teaching on his website is not easy for everyone to understand and use.


Let us all stand united, honour the originator of the method, and see the positives in every good practitioner's and trainer's efforts in helping people help themselves to health and happiness. Let us say to the world how positive EFT is. EFT has benefited so many of us EFT Practitioners, Trainers, and thousands, if not millions of self-help tappers out there. Let us spread the good word about EFT and question every opinion before we make it our own. After all, we can tap on that opinion thoroughly with the tools we have. If the opinion starts to shift, then it probably is not "gospel truth" and we can form our own opinion once our energy is flowing more freely.
