Emotional Freedom Techniques and Aspects

April 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

The definition of an aspect when working with Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a particular part or feature of an issue. The relevance and significance of this to EFT is when we are tapping on an issue (particularly when we are beginning with EFT) we forget to look for or don't even see the various different parts or features of an issue and get frustrated that EFT is not working for us.

For example, if you have a charge on an issue and you rate your anger at seven out of ten and after two rounds the anger is zero but you feel sad instead you may think EFT has not worked for you. Especially if you rate your sadness at a high number. What you have in fact done is shifted aspects, the emotion of sadness is a new part of the issue. Moving from aspect to aspect is usually a very good sign that you are moving and clearing the issue. Shifting emotions is a very important, and sometimes subtle part of learning and applying EFT.

Another example of aspects is a specific event where someone said something hurtful to you. You tap on your anger and hurt and after a few rounds it is 0. Then you remember the look on their face, and up the charge goes again and you're steaming mad, and you think "I thought EFT worked?!". You have shifted to another part or feature of the issue, so you tap on how you feel about 'the look' and keep going until you have found all the aspects and there is no charge left on anything related to that specific event. This detective work will come naturally the more you tap and gain experience. Aspects can be anything, sounds, a smell, a taste, so the next time you think EFT has not worked, take heart and have another look to see if it is in fact another part to the issue and tap on it.
