Pioneers of Tapping

EFT tapping points

Tapping has come a long way since it  was first introduced in the 1960’s by George Goodheart, a chiropractor, who used acupressure tapping for physical ailments. Not long after George Goodheart introduced tapping, Dr. John Diamond, a psychiatrist, tried treating his patients with acupressure for their psychological problems. In the next decades more experts, such as, Roger Callahan, PhD, Patricia Carrington, PhD and Gary Craig joined the pioneers.

 

Dr. Callahan, a clinical psychologist developed structured tapping protocols called “algorithms”, which eventually became popularly known as “tapping techniques” and became the founder of Thought Field Therapy or TFT. He was also responsible for discovering that tapping on specific areas or meridian points on the body made people feel better. It is said that it was in the 1980’s when Dr. Callahan helped one patient overcome her intense phobia of water by tapping under her eye, which is linked to the stomach basing on ancient energy body maps.

 

SInce then, tapping has evolved into many other tapping techniques as introduced by other pioneers. Dr. Patricia Carrington, a medical school professor, developed a single-algorithm protocol called Acu-Tap in 1988. She came up with what is now known and widely-used, the EFT “Choices Method”. Even at 90, she is still tapping.

Another pioneer expert in the energy field, Gary Craig, a performance coach, joined the others in 1990. He  simplified Dr. Callahan’s method and named it Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT.

 

Today, tapping and how it has evolved into various tools and methods, such as EFT, is already going mainstream with more people being aware of what we could benefit from it.

The Power of Meeting Your Employees’ Needs

F494A1D8-A9FE-DE78-135D-5DD912A50F15_file0001110571870.jpg

How can we make employees satisfied and productive at work?

A survey conducted on more than 19,000 people across all work levels and from different industries showed that the secret is in fulfillment of four basic needs: renewal (physical); value (emotional), focus (mental) and purpose (spiritual).

With just a little effort and even possible no financial investment, such as encouraging renewal or breaktimes, meeting these core needs give the motivation for people to give the best of themselves.

 - Tony Schwartz, and

Business bloggers at Harvard Business Review discuss a variety of business topics including managing people, innovation, leadership, and more. … Even more interestingly, there is a straight dose effect associated with meeting an employee’s core needs – meaning that the cumulative positive impact rises with each additional need that gets satisfied. … We hope the conversations that take place on HBR.org will be energetic, constructive, and thought-provoking.

Synchronicity and The Stories of Our Lives

photo

Synchronicity is defined by the Merriam-webster dictionary through the definition of Carl Jung as  “the coincidental occurrence of events and especially psychic events (as similar thoughts in widely separated persons or a mental image of an unexpected event before it happens) that seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality.”

I have personally experienced how events coincide in startling ways many times in my life and today was one of those days.

Earlier today, the Swedish Radio, P4 Radio Stockholm, called and wanted to have Maria and me on air about our newly-launched book, the Green Smoothies – Weight Loss Recipes, of which the details of possible broadcast I have not been made aware of. We have set  a 12:30 meeting for this tomorrow.

Excitedly, after learning about the invitation,  I started to write a text message about it to my bonusfather Alf Vigren and Siv Nordin. While doing this I got interrupted by a conversation and left it written halfway.

A few minutes later I got a call from Alf’s mobile phone number. Alf, who was one of the people I wanted to write a text message to a few minutes ago, was calling me! However, the line got cut off before I got to hear his voice.

So, I called him up and asked why he only let one tone ring. Surprisingly, it turned out that he was in his car and the cellular audio system in the car, which had been out of service for a couple of weeks, suddenly turned on by itself and called me up, of all people in his contacts list!

Occurrence of these meaningful events always go beyond my normal understanding. But what I know of, we are all interconnected and are part of a much greater system. Life is the harmonious, inspiring and magical interaction of all these.

Mastery of Terrible things and events

storm in New York 2014 3

Mastery is not measured by the number of terrible things you eliminate from your life, but by the number of times you eliminate calling them terrible.

Neale Donald Walsh, said that in a mail to me this morning.

I am thinking of this as I am trying to figure out why the new technology misbehaved somewhat for me in my last tele session, in spite of my thorough advance testing.

What did I do wrong?

is a better question instead of

How could I do such a terrible thing?

Yes, What did I do wrong, and how can I prevent it from happening again? is a lot more productive when it comes to having all your wits in place to find solutions. It brings you to another emotional level, a level more corresponding to solutions than problems. And you cant solve problems very well, if you remain on the same wavelength as the problem itself.

I got a good perspective of technical problems, when just ahead of my last tele session I received this photo from my sister living on Manhattan. A view she can see from her balcony. Storm Arthur is making its way up the east coast of America and gives reason to real stress. Real stress that is meant to make people aware about imminent danger and take valid precautions.

storm in New York 2014 4

So similarly, What can I do to minimize potential damage?

is a better question, than:

Why do this terrible weather have to strike just here?

My aware and encouraging thoughts are with you who believe you are haunted by “terrible” things and events!

Try something new: change your words, and notice how it changes your mood!
