Just thought I would share this daisy chain miracle with you. Not the first miracle, (I have learned so much from all my daisy chain partners, thank you daisy chain 1) but today I am feeling lots of gratitude and want to share it. I don't know if you, like me sometimes get so caught up in life that you tap for your partner but decide you are too busy to be tapped for/ you haven't got time to look after yourself, so you let your buddy down by not asking them to tap for you. I did that and Osnat sent me a very gentle email asking me if I wanted to tap. I read it while on holiday so couldn't answer and forgot when I came home to overwhelm. Relative dying, daughter on honeymoon, granddaughter to look after plus all the other bits of life. Just when I needed to tap the most, but I didn't think of me, I had too many other people to care for. Well the Universe has a great way of getting you to pay attention and it came in the form of picking my granddaughter up and my back going again. Osnat - please can we tap?!!!! So we did. She kept me very focussed on the moment my back went and the tears came. I don't cry a lot so this was such a welcome release of the pressure valve. I knew some good would come of it in one form or another. It didn't seem to be my back as I was still bent to the side at a 45 degree angle.
However, this morning I woke up straight, and carried on walking around straight for 2 hours. A miracle. So thank you Gwyneth for starting the Guild. Without you I wouldn't have been tapping with Osnat. Thank you Heather for keeping the daisy chains going. Thank you Guild members for joining daisy chains, but most of all thank you Osnat for what you did for me yesterday. Bless you.
I'm not out of the woods yet, there's still more to do. When I sat down for breakfast my back went again. I thought what do I need to do to aid my full recovery. Lay in bed, read a book, relaxed, practiced some self care and I'm straight again! and being very gentle and mindful of my movements. I will be making self care a priority because when you are incapacitated as I was, you can't help others anyway. Oh yes, and I will remember to tap!
First and foremost the love and support I feel from people in all parts of the world who are there when you need them. I've only met most of them on ZOOM, but when my son had his brain surgery, Heather invited people to tap for him in a ZOOM group as he was undergoing surgery. And his recovery has been miraculous.
Second: The generosity of Gwyneth and others on the training teams, support groups, on Daisy Chains, and in the Sanctuary.
Third: I have met so many wonderful, interesting people who love EFT and Energy work and love to share it with others.
Fourth: The opportunity to share my passion for EFT and energy work with others individually and in groups.
Fifth: The wonderful resources that we have available
and I could go on and on.
I was joined the EFT Guild over two years ago and it has provided exactly what I was looking for and much more - support, community, ongoing learning, connection with peers and colleagues. Like many others I trained in EFT and then was out there in the world as a lone practitioner which was have been very lonely and isolating and even a bit scary. I imagine many newly qualified practitioners find themselves in this situation and i am guessing that only the strong survive. Then along came the Guild at the perfect time. I have jumped in an availed of all the Guild has to offer. Daisy Chain (exchange tapping) which was a wonderful and heart enhancing experience both for those I tapped for and those I tapped with, as well as a very special connection within our group of seven. I have attended many, many Support Groups and learn more every single time. Now I run a Support Group once a month and can give something back to others in the way I was so generously given to and continue to be. The genius and beauty of the EFT Guild is that I can be part of a Daisy Chain, Support Groups, Specialist groups and more and all from the comfort of home where geography is not a barrier.
I was lucky to have been in the right place at the right time when I got to train with Gwyneth Moss. The experience charged me up and I was excited to improve my work and expand my practice. Many of my hypnosis colleagues were not familiar with EFT and when I got the invitation to join The EFT Guild I was starting to feel a bit lonely here in the middle of the U.S.
I dipped my toe in the pool as a Daisy Chain volunteer and was pleased to find that with the support of Gwyneth and DC mum Heather Carter it's been much easier than I anticipated. I also enjoy hosting a monthly support group and volunteering as an EFT Angel. All of these opportunities to connect with other like minded people across the world have recharged, refreshed and renewed my practice.
What I get out of my guild membership has exceeded my expectations. I expected opportunities for continuing education and maybe connecting with a few other practitioners. Turns out any energy I invest comes back to me multiplied.
Working in private practice is very rewarding but also quite isolating. Long days of other people's difficulties are tiring no matter how much we tap. The Guild is like the friendliest coffee bar, the bistrot or the comfy sitting room where I can put my feet up safely, talk, tap or listen - or just be quiet among friends. It connects me to others right across all waters. And we can have a good laugh!
Yesterday I had a new client. She is seeing a therapist, who referred her to me.
I like to find out what my client expects to get from our EFT sessions, especially first time clients. But before I could ask the client this question, she began telling me about all of her problems. I knew from our brief phone intake that she had quite a few but she began to tell me about them again, almost as if she had done this many times before.
Fortunately, I didn't let her continue for half an hour as I think she would have done. Instead, I interrupted her (a couple times) to say, gently, "I don't have to know the whole story right now to help you. Let's pick one problem that is really bothering you today and start tapping."
I know that it is common to want the whole history before getting started with therapy. I feel fortunate that with EFT a different approach works as well. In fact, I would feel overwhelmed if I had to hear about all of a client's problems before we could start the healing process.
I am so grateful to Gwyneth for teaching me the process of EFT in Levels 1 and 2. I often hear her guiding voice in my head, before, sometimes or during a session of EFT . I hear her probing questions, her warm calming phrases which I try to emulate. I understand that skill comes from practice , practice and more practice . It also comes from continued learning which is where The Guild is imperative. The Guild offers, not only articles and links to other practitioners and their resources, but tapping practice through the daisy chains with other members. We are fortunate to have some highly skilled practitioners who encourage and help others giving feedback which they offer for free to members of The Guild who are just starting out, people who value their experience. It would not have been possible to build up my skills, knowledge and confidence without it. The Guild is part of the fabric to my practice . I rely on it as a resource library, which is available 24/7, for historical information and up to date latest research, news and views. I often hear of practitioners who feel isolated , or stuck for ways to move forward with a group or individual, thankfully the Guild ensures no one needs to feel this . It is an amazing community of like minded well trained individuals who have the good fortune of being one well founded organisation who together are amazing ! Long live the Guild and Gwyneth !!!

Sharing and caring-
Im a member of a national walking group where I pay an annual fee which in return connects me to a network of people who have a shared goal which is to walk get fit and visit beautiful places that I would never have visited before . It provides me with friendship and a great reason to socialise and we do. I joined this group when I was looking for life and it sure paid off.
Now I see the fee as an investment for my health and wellbeing I budget for this montly so the subscription doesnt seem so hard to pay when its due. Whats that got to do with the Guild and being a member you may ask.
For me its the same. I save my monthly subscription to pay the annual fee. The guild for me has been a life saver. A connected community of like minded people. On line groups and support networks which are second to none.
Daisy chains and ongoing professional support from a huge network of like minded experienced people all with a common goal of sharing the skills knowledge and benefits of EFT .
The Guild also is an excellent showcase to advertise and gain guidance from other tappers a like.
It keeps me safe knowing I have professional
tappers on board keeping both me and my practice up to date.
As well as a fantastic administration site that does all the work.
For me I wouldnt be with out it.
Well worth the annual fee.
For many years in the States there was a long-running TV show called Cheers. It was about a bar in an urban neighborhood, but actually it was about Belonging.
Each week something would happen - like Life! - and the various characters would end up helping each other weather, recover, and overcome the challenge, always in the sure knowledge that they were NOT alone, that friends had their backs and together, they'd get through it. They developed bonds and a shared history that helped them create safety, resilience and growth.
I don't think the Guild is so very different from that; I value it for collegial sharing, swapping, support, friendship of like-minded people and yes, when Life throws it at you, there's a warm supportive place where you can get help, and everybody knows your name.
