“Tapping doesn’t work for me.”

“EFT stopped working.”

“I tried tapping and it doesn’t work.”

“I used to tap but then I stopped. I don’t really know why.”

“I can’t remember what words to say.”

“It just made me feel bad all the time.”

“EFT made me feel like a failure.” 

Millions of people around the world have used EFT tapping, many with remarkable results, so when it doesn’t work, why? The catchall phrase is ‘resistance’ but it’s been my experience that this isn’t always true. Sometimes, and perhaps more often than people would assume, the real problems occur in the structure of EFT itself. 

If you’re one of the many people who think tapping has failed you, or you’ve failed tapping, please think again. This book is not for the person who is completely unfamiliar with tapping, so there isn’t any introduction to what it is and how it’s done. All of that has been written about in many other places. This is specifically for those who have tried and tried somewhere along the way have hit a wall. 

Hello, and welcome. I’m Rhys Bendith. Within these pages the focus is on how tapping advice traps for the unwary can lead to problems of their own.

I first came across EFT in 1998, and I’ve been using it ever since. I’ve read hundreds of thousands of words on the subject, created an extensive personal library, watched countless videos, taken a few courses, and at times felt as if I was a total tapping failure. 

As an open source and still-growing therapy, a lot of what I was reading and seeing (and trying) was at times confusing, unhelpful, poorly thought out, or so general as to be useless to me.

It used to bother me. A lot.  So, I researched, experimented, and compiled. I spoke to others about the hurdles they’d faced, and patterns began emerging, so I began modifying some procedures and approaching others in very different ways. I tested my ideas on 2 groups  of 19  and 13 volunteers over a 5 week period, and nearly 70 individuals over the course of 2017, all of whom had stopped tapping and felt EFT had failed them, or that they had somehow failed EFT. The suggestions I made worked, and are still working a year later. This book is the result. 

If you’re one of the many people who have thought:

“Tapping doesn’t work for me.”

“EFT stopped working.”

“I tried tapping and it doesn’t work.”

“I used to tap but then I stopped. I don’t really know why.”

“I can’t remember what words to say.”

“It just made me feel bad all the time.”

“EFT made me feel like a failure”, please think again. 

You may have hit a design roadblock in the popular way EFT has been taught.

This book is not for the person who is completely unfamiliar with tapping, and so there isn’t any introduction to what it is and how it’s done. All of that has been written about in many other places. This is specifically for those who have tried and tried and somewhere along the way have hit a wall. 

If at first you don’t succeed, question the steps you took.
