Divide The Event Into 3 Parts

Here is a piece of the EFT tapping puzzle.  You have a story with an emotional trigger (fear, frustration, annoyance, etc.).  It could have happened when you were 3 years old, or yesterday.  As an aside, the EFT practitioner doesn’t need to hear the details of the story unless you want to tell it.

We name the story, approximate how long it took, and do some tapping for the overall story.  Then we get to the details, out loud or in your mind.  That part can be confusing for some.

When we try to break down the story into its smallest parts, people get confused about how to do that.  The story usually took maybe a half second to a few minutes, and is in one setting.  So how do you break it down?

I tell my clients to divide the story into three parts of a timeline, starting from just before the beginning, and we will start tapping about only the first part.  We tap on what was seen, heard and felt in the first part until the intensity level gets down to about a 3 or less.  We do the same with the 2nd and 3rd parts.  We then go back and use EFT techniques to clear the remaining triggering aspects.

There you have it.  Break the story down into 3 parts of a very short timeline and tap for each part individually.

I hope that was helpful.




Ruthi Backenroth, MBA, Advanced EFT Practitioner, teaches men and women suffering with chronic back pain to get breakthrough relief.

Ruthi's work is her challenge to those who said: "You will just have to live with the pain." That outrageous prediction spurred her search for a solution to her own back pain. And she has proved them wrong many times over.

Ruthi's clients are frustrated with traditional approaches and are committed to getting lasting results. We use a series of mental exercises to retrain the brain to stop the pain signals, and get relief.

  Sessions are by phone or Skype.

        Hi Rochel,
        Thank you for commenting on my blog. And thanks for sending people over here. By the way, with EFT we can even mitigate some of the physical stomach symptoms.
