Please be aware that this is not a process for a beginner...
But before you get annoyed with me or this website, I'm not trying to make out that a beginner doesn't know enough to understand this process, it's just that I want you to be aware that you can get lost as its very in-depth.
To tell you the truth it just pisses me off when people say you have to know steps A, B and C before you can go to D, who gives a shit, just give me D.. Ha ha maybe I should tap on that, but that's one of my pet hates.
So no I am not saying that it is exclusive only to those whom know and understand EFT, I say grab it as its a great book, and your going to learn so much from it.
However if you are new to EFT or have not been around it for long, then I also suggest that you grab a program such as "Creating EFT Scripts" at the same time. This way you can skip about from A to B and right to D with confidence.
But again you can tell me to get stuffed and do whatever pleases you, it's always your choice...
Developed by Karl Dawson in around 2006, and from my understanding at that time Karl was working with a patient who had a fear or a phobia, this particular lady was making some headway with her fear but had become stagnated at a particular point and Karl was not as yet able to shift her anxiety around the fear.
Karl had asked the client if she could see an image of herself when she first experienced the fear; as is standard practice with EFT, we try to illicit more feelings or to see what else might be connected with whatever we are tapping on.
The lady then said "yes I can see myself", and then went on to mention to Karl that she could see herself as a little girl so clearly that she could almost tap on her. It was not normal practice but as the session had stalled somewhat Karl decided to go with it and suggested that the client tap on herself as a small girl.. Once the client had tapped on herself she found that the anxiety and the phobia had been released.
This was the beginning of what has become known as Matrix Reimprinting using EFT. Karl has gone on to measure and develop this process over the past 8 or so years, in that time he has used this method with 1000's of clients with success. Whilst Matrix Reimprinting does not neglect or take away from EFT, as EFT is still the basis of this whole process, as without EFT none of his work would be possible, but where he is able to use the Matrix Reimprinting Protocols with clients in addition to standard EFT he has found it to be an extremely valuable asset to his tool box.
