One of the most profound discoveries in EFT was the phenomenon called "Borrowing Benefits." The experience of “Borrowing Benefits” was first noted by EFT practitioners and facilitators. They reported that, rather than feeling exhausted after a day working with clients, they were energized. Their own emotional problems seemed to have melted away, even though they weren't working on or even thinking about the same issues as their clients.
This seemed very hard to believe, because it doesn't apply to most other modalities that support and empower clients to release emotional issues.
Talk therapists usually do not find their own anxiety or depression improving after working with clients. Social workers rarely find their problems melting after a day of work nor are the problems of life coaches resolved when they help their clients resolve their own problems with motivation, accountability, or goal-setting. In fact, the reverse often occurs, as the practitioners take on the emotional burdens their clients are processing. The rate of burnout among helping professions is high.
Well, it doesn’t happen, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could get the benefits of meditation simply by watching other people meditate. If it did we’d have meditators on our screen savers!
Yet, how wonderful that by just watching EFT and tapping along in a group or one-on-one sessions, on your issues, can produce lasting change---Emotional Freedom! Source:EFTUniverse.com
