Borrowing Benefits With EFT
Many of you working with an EFT coach, through EFT coaching, are familiar with EFT, also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques. You may also be familiar with the term borrowing benefits. Borrowing benefits with EFT yields dramatic emotional clearing, not just for the person whose issue is being addressed, but for members of the group as well. As an EFT coach, I experience this often when working with individuals in a group, using EFT on an issue such as fear, stress, anger, trauma, abuse and so on.
When one member of the group has an emotional issue they wish to clear, the entire group, using EFT, taps along with me and the individual who has the issue, even though it may not their issue. More often than not, the issue is related close enough to the one they are dealing with either consciously or subconsciously that they gain relief as a result of tapping and repeating the phrases used by the individual they are tapping for.
When you experience this yourself, it is quite remarkable. Gary Craig, the founder and developer of EFT, discovered borrowing benefits while teaching EFT to a group of people who had no previous knowledge of EFT.
During the workshop, Gary had asked for a volunteer and a woman came up who had a very serious childhood abuse issue. Since Gary only had about 30 minutes, he wanted to give every participant in the workshop as much personal exposure to the EFT procedures as possible. So, Gary tried an experiment. He asked each of the audience members to tune into a specific event in their past that was still bothersome to them. Gary asked them to recall the most intense experience they could find and then rate the current intensity of that issue on scale from 0 - 10. The audience's issues ranged from 7 to 10 in intensities.
Gary instructed each participant to make a mental movie of their event, write down a title for it as well as their 0 - 10 intensity ratings. This whole process only took a few minutes and allowed everyone to "tune in" to an issue they could tap on.
Then, while working with his volunteer, Gary asked the audience to tap along as though they were tapping for the volunteer's issue. They were to say the exact same words and to tap in the exact same places just as Gary and the volunteer were doing. The results astounded Gary. After 20 minutes of tapping, Gary asked his volunteer to step outside of the room, try to get upset by reviewing the events of her traumatic issue. When she returned, she was all smiles, stating she could not bring up any remaining traces of the anger, tears, etc. The entire issue was collapsed.
Gary then turned and asked the audience to check in on their issues, which had previously been 7's - 10's and reportedly now were all at either 0 or 1. How could this be? As Gary so beautifully states, "To me, it is undeniable that major benefits can be gained through this method. Not only do people tune into their own parallels during this process but we also must recognize the spiritual concept of Oneness at work here. We are connected. We are One--even though it seems otherwise."
When we work together as a group, we tune in to help one person resolve their issue. Through this common spiritual bond, this true caring, we are united and the combined synergistic energy that results from everyone tapping creates such a strong energy field that our own energy fields are assisted in the process.
Borrowing benefits is just one aspect of EFT that continues to enrich the lives of all involved. If you have never experienced borrowing benefits, you can do so by viewing any EFT video and simply tapping along with the practitioner and the client. Remember to select an issue of your own first, title it, rate it's intensity on a scale of 0 - 10 and write this information down so you will have it to compare with you results after tapping along with the issue of the client on the screen.
I always love the results my groups have received when doing EFT. Borrowing benefits makes doing EFT in a group truly beneficial for all regardless of the issue at hand. Good luck and happy tapping!
