I attended the 2018 Spring Energy Event this past weekend, held in the greater NYC area, organized by Jondi Whitis. Two and a half days of being with other EFT colleagues, psychologists, and energy healers. The days were packed full with connecting conversations, not to mention the wide variety of material and information shared. The effects of the gathering will last long into the year for me, helping me organize, focus, feel my inspiration, and connect into the matrix of energy healing professionals.

Clinical Research Shows Positive Effects
Dr. Peta Stapleton presented on the EFT research. She’s associated with Bonds University and is the world’s top EFT researcher, backed by her university and top-notch clinical and ethical standards. The takeaway from her talk is that there is plenty of research showing that EFT has a positive effect on the body and brain over time. Bottomline is that tapping works and more and more studies are showing the physical benefits of tapping. I’m re-inspired to add more daily tapping into my routine.
Here is a podcast by Gene Monterastelli with Peta if you are interested in more information. http://tappingqanda.com/2017/10/pod-290-latest-scientific-research-eft-w-dr-peta-stapleton/
Let the Tapping Do the Work
Gwyneth Moss often reminds us to let the tapping do the work. In a private conversation with a long time EFT trainer who learned with both Gary Craig and then later with Tina Craig, I was reminded of the power of staying detailed, taking one aspect at a time, and letting the tapping do the work. The foundations of the shortcut recipe, adding in the nine-gamut once in a while, and using specific language are time-tested, and all we need.
We, and Tapping, Each Have a Place in the Community
At the end of the gathering, Jondi led us in some powerful, heart-felt surrogate tapping for two community members. I’ve long advocated at these gatherings that we use our collective energy together to do some good, and this surrogate tapping was a prime example. Likewise, a family member had a traumatic experience over the weekend, and we talked and tapped together within a few hours of the experience. Tapping is not just for helping others heal the past, it’s also for right-now, what’s happening in our lives today.
As I sort out what’s next for me, my focus, and so on, I’m clear that I want to continue to help others add tapping into their lives. I have two things in progress:
- I’m working on my next book, called Just for Today, A Year Around the Sun. I was going to release it in November but have decided to move that date up. I will keep you informed. It’s got 187 contemplations and tapping scripts, following the 64 archetypes of the I Ching, Human Design Rave, and Gene Keys.
- I’m thinking of doing a weekly Tapping Tune-Up podcast, a short tap-along to start off our week, process the themes of the week before, and getting us tapping. I have to sort out podcast hosting and so on, but it feels like something I want to do that would be beneficial.
Finally, a giant thank you to everyone who reads, taps, meditates, considers, and shows up in a meaningful, curious way. We each are playing a part in creating a wonderful world where everyone feels safe, loved, and expresses who they are.
