Weekly EFT Healing Circles
What is an EFT group session?
EFT can easily be used in group settings. During the group session each person picks an individual topic that they would like to work on. It is not required to share your situation, although I highly recommend it(more on this later). At the very minimum everybody in the group shares the negative emotions associated with their experience and I write them down. No matter the specific circumstance, most of the emotions people will name are variations of fear, anger, sadness, anxiety, and resentment. I guide the group through tapping on the emotions on our list and each person focuses on how it pertains to their specific topic. By the end of the session everybody feels significantly lighter, balanced, and back in a state of grace.
How often should I come? How do the group sessions compare to one on one experiences?
These circles give an amazing weekly boost to whatever you are endeavoring to take on. They create community, restore the heart, provide insight, and balance the energy body. I recommend that they are utilized as powerful maintenance to move through emotional patterns and internal clean-up for suffering or strife you may be experiencing. However, they are not individually tailored to you. In a private session I frequently walk the client through the specific details of their situation. For instance, in a group we will be using general set-up statments such as “I feel so angry about this” or “I resent them“. The trick here is to powerfully pull the experience of those emotions to you. It is the participants job to vividly focus on what they are angry about or who exactly they resent. I give several prompts to help the group pin point their experience, but they must keep drawing it to them. Group sessions are greatly beneficial and frequently cause the miraculous. However, sometimes once people leave they may have some of the same old stuff pop back up. Luckily you will know what to do! Tap it out in the moment! This is a skill I recommend no matter how many EFT sessions you do! It’s a skill for living!
In order to see that a greater percentage of the results from the group hold fast, it is necessary to process the deeper emotional patterns that were developed at a young age. I highly recommend that people utilize the one on one experience in order to go more deeply into the details of their specific circumstances for pervasive healing at a rapid rate. While both styles of processing are very potent and greatly beneficial, there is no denying that the individual sessions yield more powerful results. Most EFT practitioners focus on private sessions for this reason. However, the EFT community noticed that if the people watching a session tap along they had decreased stress levels and even shifts in their own lives. That was how the group process was devised. My prescription for anybody that wants to tackle larger issues, accelerate their healing and find emotional freedom, would be to receive a private session once a week and come to circles regularly to do maintenance and get a weekly boost. This truly creates the miraculous!
Why is communal EFT important?
We share more experiences than you might think. By listing the feelings that we are experiencing it is quickly evident to the group that they too have dealt with, or are currently addressing, similar emotions and we heal it TOGETHER. I mentioned earlier that it is not required to share our topics. On personal level it does help me to know what people are tapping on, but it’s certainly not necessary. However, there is enormous power in vulnerability. When we share our experiences we give ourselves and each other permission to be humble students in the school of life. We are all working our way through the divine curriculum an this is an enormously empowering context to share with one another. Even though other healing modalities can provide great benefits, EFT healing circles offer something special that yoga, meditation, lectures and dance do not. In a world so wrought with comparisons, ego identity as an individual, and competition; large groups sessions that encourage people to speak up about their fears, desires, pains, and commitments, and then heal as one are crucial. EFT circles provide a powerful communal healing experience that join us together to support each other in our growth and evolution. This must happen in order for there to be peace on our planet.
Tapping on your own.
Tapping on on your own is frequently challenging for people who are new to the process. All kinds of resistance tends to come up and that is ok. Just be patient with yourself. I highly recommend going to a park, taking a walk, or tapping in the bath in order to get time alone to practice your new skills. I find that actually writing my topic down on paper, along with the list of associated emotions, greatly facilitate the process. It allows me to see which parts hold the charge instead of getting lost in the nebulous emotions that can cloud my perception when I’m dealing with something. You can do it! It just takes practice.
