One of the main differences between FasterEFT and other therapies, including regular EFT, is focus. Whereas most modalities require you to keep your focus on your problem throughout the process (and this is also our natural, human inclination), one of the keys to success in using FasterEFT is taking your focus off the problem while you tap.
In other words, you aim by noticing how you know it’s a problem; and then, rather than staying focused on the problem take your focus off it, and focus on the feeling of your fingers on your skin as you tap.
What’s the Point?
This part of the FasterEFT technique is called “de-fractionation” and it is the reason FasterEFT works so effectively. For more detail on de-fractionation and how it works, read: What is De-fractionation?”
Since your subconscious is the part of you that is in charge of your memories, how they’re interpreted, and the structures they provide for what you experience in your life, it is your subconscious that needs to make the changes rather than your conscious mind.
The act of noticing how you know you have a problem is all that is needed toaim the subconscious at what you want to change.
When you focus on your problem, as you focus on it, you are firing the neural network in your brain that is supporting that problem. As neuroscientists say: “Neurons that fire together, wire together” — this refers to the fact that the more a particular neural connection is used, the stronger the connection becomes.
And, since every thought is a connection between neurons, the same thought will create the same connection every time you think it.
What’s the Answer?
Using FasterEFT, when you aim by noticing how you know you have the problem — you are firing those connections for the last time. You are feeling those feelings for the last time.
Then, by taking your focus off the problem while you tap (or use any other form of de-fractionation), you are a) firing different neurons in relation to that issue, and b) interrupting the signal between the brain and the major organs that produce the stress response in the body.
The Bottom Line
The changes you make when using FasterEFT are neurological and physiological rather than esoteric or energetic. In order to experience the changes you want to see in your life, you need to make those changes in your brain.
And the way your brain makes changes is by rewiring your neocortex and recording the new structure, along with the new chemical response, in thecerebellum of your brain (the “seat of the subconscious”).
Considering the fact that 95% of all behaviors, choices and decisions are unconscious, it is the changes made here that are the keys to effective, lasting results.
