faster eft questions and answers

The following are the 15 most commonly asked FasterEFT questions and their answers:


1. Is Faster EFT a shortcut version of EFT?

FasterEFT stands for Faster Emotionally Focused Transformations and EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. Robert G. Smith developed FasterEFT and Gary Craig developed EFT.

Robert G. Smith was an EFT practitioner but after so many years of practice he came to realize that he isn’t exactly doing regular EFT. After endless studying and practicing, combining scientifically proven techniques, he arrived with a totally different and highly efficient healing system – Faster EFT.

In other words, Faster EFT is not a shortcut to regular EFT. They operate on two different belief systems, although both aim to liberate everyone from suffering. Robert G. Smith’s FasterEFT is based on neuroscience and modern biology, while Gary Craig’s EFT is based on balancing the energy system of the body.

FasterEFT is not a shortcut of/to anything. It is a powerful mental healing system combining the most powerful techniques. Robert G. Smith’s work keeps on evolving to deliver only the best to all practitioners and followers and aims to never falter.

2. Is FasterEFT similar to Psychotherapy?

Faster EFT is one of the most applied tools used by many psychotherapists globally, to address and help their clients overcome problems. Psychotherapy may involve many other techniques applied by the psychologist and one of those can be Faster EFT.

However, Faster EFT can train an individual to help overcome fears, anxiety, phobias, traumas and other health issues such as chronic pain and many other stress-related ailments. In a way, it’s like becoming your own therapist through self-application of the techniques. Nonetheless, Robert G. Smith would still advocate consulting a psychotherapist or a psychologist for issues that require immediate attention. There is no problem that cannot be fixed through FasterEFT techniques. It is the only mental healing process that can resolve issues quickly without having to rely on medication.

4. Does FasterEFT use Matrix Reimprinting?

No. FasterEFT operates within tangible physical mechanics. The Matrix does not exist in FasterEFT. Robert G. Smith created FasterEFT with a great focus on the mind, particularly with a greater focus on the unconscious mind. He created the process that understands how the mind encodes, stores and retrieves information based on memories.

What is done in Faster EFT that may be similar to Matrix Reimprinting is the Faster EFT Memory Reimprinting or Flipping. It is a powerful process that can encode new links to emotionally charged memories to collapse the old pattern of thoughts that are causing problems. The whole operation requires only the use of the mind and the use of emotions, thoughts and trances produced by a memory.

It is a highly effective technique especially for people dealing with PTSD, anxiety and other problems related to Traumatic Stress Responses.

In order for the placebo to take effect, the person is required to believe in the whole process. Whereas in FasterEFT, you can be set free from pain even with a little belief in the FasterEFT thinking system.

FasterEFT can rewire and reprogram how emotionally charged memories causing problems are fired within the cortex of the brain where they are stored. This firing or signals will have better imprints to be drawn from, causing a change in the behavior and perception about the problem. This suggests that it works by changing imprints of memories causing problems, and the placebo simply cannot work in such a way.
