I have been using EFT for five years and with great results and am always on the lookout for unusual ways of using it. I would therefore like to share an unusual way to eliminate a fear of heights and anything associated with it by watching a Youtube movie and performing EFT as well.
The first time I watched the movie, I had the brilliant idea of tapping along to help eliminate any remaining fears I had associated with heights, as I previously had a fear of heights - especially using high, open elevators, and I always avoided Ferris wheels and similar types of rides .
The movie lasts six and half minutes and is titled "The Scariest Path in the World?" I did find bits of it nerve racking.
I decided to watch it again using EFT and recommend the following to any person who would like to attempt to eliminate any fears associated with heights.
Before pressing the "start button," tap on the Karate Chop point 3x and say:
Even though I have this fear of ________(your fear connected with heights in your words), I completely love and accept myself anyway..." After which you may say, "The movie I am about to see is real and am asking for my fear of ____________ to be eliminated."
Press the start arrow of the Youtube movie, then after viewing it for about 1 1/2 minutes, pause it and rate the intensity level of your fear on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the most fearful).
Continue watching and start tapping on the points - eyebrow, side of eye, under eye, under nose, chin point, collar bone and under arm, taking deep breaths along the way .
If at any part you feel extra scared, pause the movie and tap on the Karate Chop point and say, "this part is really scary (or some other comment about what you're feeling), I love and accept myself and anyway..." then continue watching the video, tapping on the points and stopping the movie at the scary scenes, repeating the comment.
At the end, test your intensity level again while thinking about what you just saw or replay it using the same technique (don't forget the deep breaths or sighs) until you bring it down to zero or a 1 or 2.
I brought my intensity level down from a 6 to zero - 1. I have not yet had the chance to test it out with a life situation, but when visualizing I feel peaceful about the situation and feel confident I will be okay when faced with one of my fears associated with heights.
Good luck to any person who tries out my suggestion with amazing EFT. I welcome any feedback.
