Transcript: EFT and Empathy
Hey, guys, Deborah Lindsey here giving some tips and tricks for EFT practitioners on how to make your take your practice to the next level. So today, I want to talk a little bit about absorbing other people’s energy. See, the reality is that as practitioners, we’re empathic, and that’s pretty much the case across the board. You know, I rarely find somebody who’s devoted their life to working as a tapping practitioner and yet practitioner who is and who isn’t empathetic.
So you’re feeling everybody’s stuff. I know for me, this has been a battle all along. Somebody comes in and they have a headache, and by the end of the session, I have a headache. They come in with arthritis pain. By the end, I have arthritis pain. And for a while there it was really, really tripping me up because it was making me out, out sick. So I had to actually cut down the number of hours I could take clients every day because every day I was walking out with more issues.
So eventually I had to really sit down and look at what it meant about myself. So what is it about this need to help other people that’s so profound that I’m willing to take on their own? They’re their issues at the same time and then start tapping on that. The other thing is, you know, when you get home and you have that headache, pain, tough it out of yourself, you know, be the surrogate not just for them, but also for yourself.
Another really, really crazy trick that works is take a shower with sea salt, take sea salt and just wash yourself all over with it. Or after a session, I would always go in and wash my hands with sea salt at the end of the session. It just really helps to clear some of that energy off of you, especially if you were tapping on the person directly. I hope this helps. Just a little tip and trick tips and tricks for practitioners.
everything we can to help make you into a really great practitioner. OK, guys. Hi.
