Dear EFT Community,

EFT Expert practitioner and trainer, Valerie Lis, suggests a simple, sometimes provocative tapping phrase that can discover hidden aspects and lead to resolution.

When do I use a positive tapping statement? This is a common question from students in my EFT workshops.

My answer, “When the positive is really the negative,” usually results in a blank stare. So I continue with the explanation and- at the same time- reveal a powerful four-word tapping phrase that often clears depression.

To a person who is happy, these four words are simply a statement of fact. But, to someone who is feeling depressed, they are loaded with resistance.

These words have a negative emotional charge and represent the source of their problem. They evoke anger, resentment, frustration, hurt, and sadness. These words stop a person who is depressed from feeling happiness and joy.

The four-word tapping phrase: “I am soooo happy!” is repeated at every tapping point.

It is said out loud and with great enthusiasm. After a few rounds, “I am such a happy person!” may be added. Tapping with one or both of these phrases usually resolves the underlying emotions and begins the recovery process.

"Even though I [state problem or feeling], I am a happy person because I deeply and completely accept myself."

"I am such a happy person."

"I am soooo happy."

"I am such a happy person."

"I am soooo happy."

"I am such a happy person."

"I am soooo happy."

I have had hundreds of clients break through depression using this technique.

It has been interesting to share their experiences. Usually shocked and confused, they cannot believe that I am asking them to lie. They may throw a swear word into the phrase, but they comply.

As they tap, their face changes. Their eyes shift in appearance from dull to sparkling.

After tapping for a few minutes, most say that the words now ring true--they see themselves capable of experiencing happiness. At least, they say, they are open to the possibility.

Of course, using this four-word phrase just begins the process. To clear depression, more tapping should be done over time to look for any hidden aspects.

This is also a clear example on when positive statements should be used. A phrase may create an emotional charge in some people, but not in others. When the phrase has negative results, e.g., when the positive is really the negative, it is a good statement to use.

Understanding this concept helps in the choice of tapping phrases and increases the effectiveness of EFT.
