The Choice Trio

By Dr. Patricia Carrington, EFT Master

Dr. Patricia Carrington is one of the pillars of the EFT community. She wrote the recently released Companion Book for the Movie: Try It on Everything. She may be best known for developing the ‘Choices Method’ for use with EFT but is a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of the use of EFT which she shares in her TeleSeminar Series and on abundant articles on her web site and on Gary’s. We are summarizing her choices method for this newsletter.

The Choice Trio

1. Identify a specific negative cognition (attitude or belief) you would like to change or to be rid of.

2. Take your initial measure of distress (on a 0 to 10 point scale)

3. Formulate a Choice which is the exact opposite of the negative cognition. For instance for the issue of: “Even though I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group.” The choice would be: “I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups.”

4. Combine the negative cognition with the positive Choice – the desired outcome – to form the setup. For example: “Even though I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group, I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups.”

5. Use the standard EFT protocol of rubbing the sore spot (or tapping the Karate chop spot) three times while repeating the setup phrase. (Forgot the process? Click here.)

6. Go through ONE round of EFT using the negative cognition ONLY as the reminder phrase. For example, “Even though I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group,” repeated at each point.

7. Immediately conduct another EFT tapping round (without checking SUDS or doing another setup) using the Choice statement ONLY as the reminder phrase. For example, “I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups.” repeated at each EFT Point.

8. Go straight into another EFT tapping round (without checking Suds or doing another set-up) using the Alternate Phrase Technique:

  • Inner Eyebrow – I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group
  • Outer Eye – I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups point use the positive Choice as the reminder phrase, at the next
  • Under Eye – I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group
  • Under Nose – I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups
  • Under Lip – I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group
  • Collarbone – I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups
  • Under Arm – I’m afraid I’ll freeze and forget my words in front of a group
  • Top of the Head – I choose to feel wonderfully at ease when speaking in front of groups

9. Check your intensity rating and if more work is needed, repeat the Trio (points 6, 7 and 8 above) as many times as necessary. In effect, the Trio serves as an extended “round”.
