Surrogate emotional freedom techniques are a great way for us to dramatically effect the energy systems of someone else's body-mind system.
To many it seams like magic and often the results are, yet the system does tie up with other systems of healing and growth. Those who study NLP can think of it as advanced rapport and modelling.
How ever you want to explain this technique the results have been proven in thousands of cases. There are two basic ways of approaching it.
One is to do the drills on yourself for the other person.
The other is to do the drills in your imagination, more of this later.
Tapping on yourself for the other person.
In this approach you do the tapping drills and set up statements and reminders on yourself. So you imagine you are the other person and just go through the procedure. Dealing with any thing that comes up.
I have personally found this method very useful, in dealing with animals, children and family and friends. At an advanced level I have taught it for very specific and what might be called unusual requests.
One of the benefits of this is that you can influence others, for good. Often it is used in a therapy session where an EFT practitioner will tap along with the client, during the session. Other benefits and uses are to tap for the client before they get to you, so that they get the most benefit from their session with you, and of course in telephone sessions it is very beneficial.
I know of a flying instructor who uses it on themselves when their student does their first solo. Others have used it when talking on the phone to customer services personnel who are being unhelpful.
Some people have issues with surrogate eft as they consider it to be a form of psychic influence and manipulation and of course it is. It may be fun if this is you to consider using the eft procedure to discover what you own glitches are concerning this area. Using EFT to effect others.
EFT in your imagination (with micro-movements)
With all effective change work we require three things in our selves, energy, intent and state. All three are necessary for effective change work and when using these techniques it is vital for you to have these set up in yourself.
I have found emotional freedom techniques to be highly effective on my self and others when using only your imagination, along with micro physical movements as described in many other systems.
It may require a bit of practice, however the results are well worth the practice involved. One of the most common uses of this technique is when you are in public and feel to self conscious to just do your drills when you need them.
If I need to rebalance I do my drills no matter where I am or who is around and have never had a problem. However I do understand that others may not posses the necessary resolve, so in these cases imaginary EFT is a highly effective tool in your arsenal.
