Highlighting the Masters Conference
There will be a “Highlighting the Masters” Conference in Sydney 25-27 October, 2007. This is a very exciting event for those of you who truly want to experience EFT from some of the best practitioners in the world. Six masters will each work with a client on stage as well as share information in panels and other presentations. Everyone presenting at this conference has been designated the highest honor in the world of EFT, that of EFT Master (There are only 28 of us so far).
It will cost approximately $650 Australian, but final cost is not yet determined. We are currently working with hotels to obtain discount rates. Final plans will be announced here in EFT News – Australia as well as GC’s EFT Insights Newsletter.
This is without a doubt the premier EFT event in Australia so far. Note it on your new 2007 calendar now…….
Your Wish Is My Command Workshop
This workshop premiers 14 January in Sydney at Crows Nest for the one time only cost of $120.
This new workshop is based on our favorite models of the Law of Attraction. It includes GC’s Palace of Possibilities, concepts from the movie, “The Secret,” and ideas from Robert Scheinfeld’s book, “Busting Loose from the Money Game.” If you attend only one workshop this year, make it this one!!!
I am conducting this workshop with my talented new associate, Bruce Levy. Bruce is an intuitive EFT practitioner whose energy work is based on 20 years experience as an acupuncturist, which includes working under a master in China. You will be hearing from Bruce in upcoming newsletters.
After the workshop, we will offer follow up teleconferencing classes to keep you supported in shifting those old patterns and motivated to make those important changes in your life. We want Your Wish Is My Command to be more than just one more workshop on the Law of Attraction. We want to offer ongoing help, including setting up a buddy system for ongoing personal support and EFT practice. The teleconferencing will be an hour a week in the evening for 4 weeks. Details will be announced at the workshop.
So far, these workshops are scheduled
If you’re interested in sponsoring this exciting workshop in your area, you can email me for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org
Creating Regional Conferences throughout Australia
People often ask me why there aren’t more EFT conferences that bring in a variety of practitioners and ideas. So, that’s part of what we’re going to organize for you. It is my intent to help produce one and two day regional EFT conferences throughout Australia beginning in 2008. These conferences will showcase local EFT practitioners as well as bring in EFT experts from all over the world. If you would like to host a conference in your area, or if you would like to present at one of these conferences, let me know.
GCs DVDs No Longer Available Through Local Practitioners
GC’s wonderful DVDs that helped people learn EFT throughout Australia will only be available for purchase over websites as of 1 January. I currently have a good inventory of all the DVDs, which I am selling at my workshops and through phone orders until the inventory runs out.
After that I will be happy to order DVDs for you or you can order them through my website, www.maggieadkins.com. If you don’t want to go through the website ordering process, U.S. money exchange and international shipping, just call me at Phone 02 6559 4745 or email me at email@example.com or come to one of my workshops. I want the process of obtaining EFT DVDs to be as easy as possible.
EFT Tip – Releasing Judging Mind with Continual Tapping
Many of us have this voice in our head that says we are just not good enough, that we are a failure, and many other versions of the same message. It can keep us in low self esteem and from our most desired dreams.
It is difficult to have a benchmark for this judging mind – most judging comes from messages in childhood and we have done it so long, we don’t even hear ourselves. Here are some examples of Judging Mind:
And here is your EFT Tip. When you hear yourself judging yourself or someone else OR afraid of being judged, you can simply do continual tapping, such as “Even though I just called myself stupid again, I deeply & profoundly accept myself.” You restate your judgment in an EFT statement and do 2-3 rounds.
If you are in a location where you can take more time with this, you might want to keep talking to yourself, even exaggerate the judgment while continually tapping. Just talk to yourself and tap.
If you are not familiar with Continual Tapping, you just tap through all the points while talking to yourself. Some call it Stream of Consciousness or Free Flowing Tapping. If you do the Short Cut Version of EFT, start with the Karate Chop point, then top of head, eyebrow, side of eye, under eye, under nose, under lip, collarbone and under arm. Then you do all that all over again until you are finished with your dialogue. If you are not familiar with the Short Cut Version, send me an email and I will send you the instructions.
Tips on Choosing Those Important Level 1, 2 & 3 Trainings
In August, 2004, GC called 16 EFT teachers to his home at Sea Ranch, California, to brainstorm and come up with training guidelines for the various training Levels. There were 3 of us from the U.S., as well as teachers from Germany, Switzerland, Austria and other European countries. The following is what evolved from that week’s efforts.
The intention of Level 1 is to provide you with a good foundation in EFT. This means experiencing and learning EFT for a variety of issues. This was never meant to be a theme workshop. GCs guidelines specify that the Level 1 has to include working experientially with pain in the body, cravings, specific trauma/event, constricted breath and more. I add self acceptance beliefs in the experiential portion of this workshop. You can visit GC’s website, www.emofree.com for a more complete list of everything that has to be presented in the approved Level 1.
Once you have a good, solid foundation in EFT, THEN it is appropriate to do more advanced work, including theme workshops.
While the Level 1’s intent is to give you a good EFT foundation to build on, the Level 2 is to help you soar. Level 2 helps you work with difficult issues and complicated clients and gives you one on one practice in a full 2 day training. I always ask what participants want to get out of the Level 2 and make sure we cover everything on that list before the two days are up. Level 2 is for anyone who wants to do EFT on a deeper level, whether it is self, family and friends or clients.
Level 3 is meant to be more open and supervisory – different practitioners need different skills and additions to what they already know to make them the Ultimate Therapist. My Level 3 brings people together in a workshop as well as support via teleconferencing.
When you take an approved Level 1 training, make sure it has all the facets that GC intended. I love to teach advanced workshops with special themes – Fear of Speaking in Public, Creating Healthy Boundaries, workshops for horse people, workshops for theatre arts, “Your Wish Is My Command,” but these workshops do NOT give a good EFT foundation. You get that in the approved Level 1. First things first………….
Yes, Maggie “finally” Has a Landline and Permanent Address
As many of you know, it took me 5 months and 12,000 kilometers of traveling to find my new Australian home. I have visited and taught EFT in some very beautiful places and the place that truly called to me as home is on the South Coast of NSW, a little retirement town near Batemans Bay – if you go to Canberra and make a turn toward the ocean, Batemans Bay is 2 hours away. I’ll give various workshops here from time to time as it is such a lovely place to visit. Lots of beaches with little coves and tidepools and lots of places to bushwalk. I am truly grateful to be able to choose such a gorgeous and nurturing home.
I have also hired a local part time assistant which will free me up to finish those books and get that CD produced……. Onward!
