Clearing All Aspects of an Issue with EFT
As an EFT practitioner, if you work on an issue and lower the emotional charge down to a 0 or 1 on the SUDS energetic charge scale, and then it seems to return soon after with a higher SUDS charge, then there are several reasons why this occurs. Let me give you some EFT Energy Therapy coaching around this:
Each time you use EFT or another meridian-based clearing technique, you must look at the over-all issue that you are clearing as though it were a precious stone. In a diamond there are many reflective sides or facets. In an emotional issue there are many entry-ways into the issue. To polish the precious stone you can go facet-by-facet. In clearing an emotional issue you may clear one approach to the issue then you’ll need to clear another, and then another. Each time you look at the issue or situation from a different perspective, there is potentially another aspect of the issue to clear. When all of the facets are polished, or aspects are cleared, then the SUDS charge will not re-appear around any aspect of the issue at hand.
Often when you begin clearing an issue using a meridian-based modality such as EFT, as you start working on the issue you have identified, another related issue with charge may pop up from your subconscious. When this occurs I always pay attention because the subconscious mind knows better than we do what issue is ready to be cleared. When it is ready, an issue may be triggered by another related one, and it pops up from the subconscious mind and bioenergetic field with more charge than the one being worked on. When this happens I usually switch my focus to the new related issue – or subconscious priority – and clear that down to a 0 charge first, then return to check the original issue. In doing this I find that usually the seemingly “secondary” issue often is either the core issue or a deeper issue than the one that triggered it, so in clearing this, the first issue usually disappears. Often practitioners stress not to shift to another charged issue like I’ve described here, but in my experience this works better and ends up doing a more complete clearing job of the issues that the body-mind-spirit would like to clear.
So, next time you get discouraged and feel that EFT may not be working for you, remember your “diamonds” and learn to follow the lead of your subconscious mind and bioenergetic field as you polish each aspect away with your tapping sequences.
