Choices and Preferences

Posted on

If you’ve been doing EFT for very long, no doubt you’ve heard of the Choices method by Dr. Patricia Carrington. It’s a creative approach to doing the EFT setup phrase where you state a choice you want to make in the last part of the statement. For example, in a typical EFT setup statement you’d say, “Even though I really dislike taking tests, I deeply and completely accept myself. With the Choices method it might be, “Even though I really dislike taking tests, I CHOOSE to find a surprisingly fun or positively motivating way to take them.”

There are a couple of ways to learn Dr. Carrington’s Choices method. She offers a video set on CDs from her EFT Choices Workshop. Or, you can get her Choices Manual. I highly recommend both of them.

If you already know how to do the Choices method, let me suggest a slight twist. Instead of using the word, “choose,” say “prefer” instead. You may also want to add, “release these thoughts and feelings.” Although there’s subtle differences to the Choices method, I find these minor changes can be quite profound. For example, you might try these setup phrases:

Even though I have [whatever the issue is],
I PREFER to feel [however you decide you want to feel].

Even though I have [whatever the issue is],
I MUCH PREFER to feel [however you decide you want to feel].

Even though I have [whatever the issue is],
I PREFER to release these thoughts and feelings. I let them go so my energy flows.

It seems that there is less of a subconscious resistance to the word “prefer” than “choice.” Try it for yourself and discover if there’s any difference for you.
