Aiming correctly is an essential part of the Faster EFT process. Without aiming properly, you may not achieve the results you’re looking for. While the aiming aspect of the process is simple, it needs to be accurate.
The basic foundation of it is: You aim with your focus. In other words, wherever you point your conscious mind, that’s where you’re aiming. As long as you aim correctly, your subconscious will do the rest of the work for you.
Just as if you were aiming a bow and arrow at a target – where you look and point the arrow is where it will end up.
How to Know What to Aim at
Fortunately, unlike most other methods of self-development, you don’t need to know what the cause of your problem is in order to clear it and make the changes you desire. You only need to know how you know it’s there. In other words, how do you know the thing you want to change is a problem?
You may feel it, you may have examples of it in the form of memories; you may see something or hear something in your mind.
Noticing how you know it’s a problem is the aiming process. However you know it’s a problem – whatever you feel, see, hear, know – is the thing you’ll be aiming at.
Aiming at a Memory
If you have a particular memory you’re addressing, notice the details of the memory. Notice what you see, hear, smell, taste and feel. Notice how you know it bothers you.
Notice the action and the expressions on faces. Whatever is there, just notice it. Noticing is how you’re aiming. Then, when you start tapping, take your focus off the memory and feel your fingertips on your skin. This is what Robert Smith calls defractionation – it breaks the trance of the memory.
After you’ve completed the round of tapping, go back to the memory, and notice what’s changed – and what’s left. As you notice what is still there that bothers you, you’re aiming again.
Then go back to the tapping. Continue following the process until the memory has flipped. Each time you notice what still remains, you are aiming at it.
Aiming at a Feeling
If you don’t have a specific memory, but you feel a negative feeling. Something bothers you – a person, an event, a fear of something coming up – whatever it is, notice how you feel. Just notice what the feeling feels like, where in your body you feel it, and how strong it is.
Then use the tapping process, focusing on the feeling of your fingers on your skin. Go back to the feeling, and notice how it’s changed. Notice what’s left, and keep repeating the process until the feeling has flipped from negative to positive.
Notice also, if any memories come to you while you’re going through the process – and flip those memories using the process as well.
Aiming When You Don’t Feel Anything
Although you may think you don’t feel anything, you must be feeling something to know that there is a problem. If you didn’t feel anything at all, you wouldn’t be needing to change whatever it is you want to change.
So, start by noticing how you know it’s a problem. If you don’t feel any emotions, how do you know it’s there? You may have a picture, you may be remembering words that were said – whatever it is that lets you know this is something you want to change. Notice that.
And as you go through the process, aiming at whatever it is, you may start to notice feelings. If so, notice what they feel like, where you feel them and how strong they are, and continue going through the process until you feel good.
The Bottom Line
The key to effective aiming is simply noticing how you know. Notice it, then take your focus off it while you tap; then notice it again. Repeat until it’s flipped.
