Metaphors for What EFT has Done for Me

I've been practicing EFT since 2006 and using it with coaching clients since 2008. It has changed my life and that of many of my clients so completely that it is difficult to explain. Simply put, I would not be a coach without EFT.

To give people an idea of the changes brought about in my life by this magical technique, I have a couple of metaphors that I use to describe how EFT has helped me over time.

1. In the beginning, I seemed to have a huge mound (picture a very large garbage dump) of "stuff" to tap on. Everything seemed to trigger me and so I just tapped on anything and everything. The dump and its contents seemed interminable. Over a period of time of consistent tapping, I noticed that the rubbish pile was a lot lower, a lot more flat and that there were specific structures or pieces of garbage that would poke out much higher than the "regular" garbage. These were the things that continued to trigger me and which needed a lot more work. As I check in with it today, I can see even that landscape has cleared up. Grass and even some wild flowers are beginning to grow there. There are still a few structures that continue to stick up above ground level (still some things in life that trigger me) but they are so few and far between now that life is simply not the same as it was back in 2006. The world appears to me to be a completely different place and it is.

2. Then the shorter version is: It used to seem as if I was standing on the batters mound of a baseball field and that life's pitcher was throwing baseballs at me, hard and fast. I saw myself as cowering on the plate just trying to side-step them as they came. I had no way to deflect them. Now, I'm either the catcher with all his protection and I can easily catch the balls and throw them anywhere I want or I'm the batter and I can hit those balls right out of the park with a big smile on my face.

The more you tap on your issues and old memories, the more your metaphors morph into something attractive and/or powerful. So what are you waiting for?! :)
