One of the things I LOVE about EFT is the opportunity to access and use my intuition. As a coach, I have learned to trust my intuition and my willingness to share it, without being attached to being *right.* Gary Craig refers to the work being done "through me" rather than "by me." That is intuition at work — a sense of knowing that occurs as a natural extension of our normal senses.
To be masterful with EFT, access your intuitive process. You have to trust in the knowing, even though you don't know how you know. EFT lends itself to using intuition, since the statements can be formed as you go along, without much forethought . . . if you allow it.
Intuition is a right brain activity. So other right-brain activities such as meditation and imagery seem to enhance it. As a coach, we were taught to practice "blurting" — just speaking out whatever insights came to mind, so as not to censor our thoughts. While it was a difficult exercise at the time, intuition is the coaches ultimate tool. To gain access, we need real ways to bypass the intellect and get clear of our own filters and biases.
Belleruth Naparstek says intuition is facilitated by “taking a giant leap inward”, by becoming the egoless vehicle that is our work. This is the place where analysis and judgment are set aside.
We need a stronger sense of spiritual connection, a deeper sense of attunement with something bigger than ourselves. We have a planet to save.
What gets in the way of intuition?
Fear of failure, striving, the need to succeed, having something to prove, feeling responsible for an outcome, busyness, analyzing, worrying, hurrying and judging. It is only when the mind is quiet that the intuitive voice can be heard.
1. Be open to intuition.
2. EXPECT intuition.
3. Trust it.
4. Act on it.
(from Sonia Choquette “True Balance”)
Cultivate a passive receptive mode within yourself. BE WITH yourself or your client. There is much less proactive striving to ‘find” the answer or to “solve” a problem. Goals can often be reached quickly with very little energy expended. There's no need to be exhausted at the end of the day! This work is, in effect, effortless.
