@Wayne, i get a flavour of what you are saying re: AP organisations. It was reminding me of all the trouble with EFT athe EFT 'Masters' and Gary Craigs open hand policy. I have just received this in my inbox from a gold standard EFT Gary Craig mailout. one of the questions : " "But why doesn't EFT work for me?": Below is a typical email we receive that asks the preceding question. My responses below the email should give you some helpful insigthts into the causes and solutions to this growing problem. Dear Gary. it gave me great pleasure to read about all the successful cases EFT could cure. I have been reading them for years. To my despair, however, I have not succeeded to cure myself. Nothing. And here is the thing: It is the easiest thing in the world to only mention the successfull cures. What about the cases that were not cured? And Why? I refuse to give up, and maybe your answer to my questions will give me more motivation to keep on trying. Kind regards, (name withheld for privacy reasons) I must raise my hand as "guilty" for publishing only the successful cases mentioned above, at least in the early years. The reason for my error is that those were the only cases I received. The people that got temporary results or no results at all (or got worse) didn't write about their disappointments. Why would they? Doing so in the face of all that success by others would likely make them look and feel like failures. In all I received nearly 3,000 positive write-ups from enthusiastic EFT'ers many of whom relied on inefficient uses of EFT such as global approaches, brief youtube videos and tapping scripts. The results were impressive, although in hindsight I suspect some were embellished. Altogether it was an exciting, although misleading, time for EFT. But think about it for a moment. There were 500,000 people on our newsletter list and only 3,000 articles were sent my way over a 15 year period. And all of them were mega-positive. So what happened to the other 497,000? Fortunately, I have become seasoned over the years and now recognize that these global approaches, brief youtube videos and tapping scripts have limited success and, while they are successful for some, the majority of people using them fade into the background with poor results. They are part of the growing EFT Silent Sea of disappointed people and we are determined to bring them back into our successful circles."
