Looking at the websites, it does appear that there is a bit of a rivalry between the original EFT and FasterEFT. I think for right now I will go with the original EFT. Part of it is because I am one of those unusual people who learn much better from reading than I do from hearing the information. So when I have two or more choices for learning something, I will go with a source that lets me learn by reading. Another factor is that I have already read the stuff on the original EFT site, including the intermediate and advanced things. That means I can start it right away. So that gets a plus over new things I would have to study. I think it is easy to get a kind of information paralysis when there is a lot of information out, some contradicting the other, about a course of self help. It takes time to read things and watch videos. Then it takes more time to think about which of the many options are right for you. It becomes a delaying factor for actually doing something. At least it has for me in the past. I have started a program of combining tapping with journaling. If I get stressed thinking about journaling, I tap a little bit first. Then after I finish journaling, I tap on the issues that were brought up. I also try to get all the specific, aspects, etc. Because the negative thoughts and feeling are not magically going away for me when I bring them up in journaling, so I have to find a way to let them go. Yesterday was the first time on this. I actually came up with some pretty major stuff when I journaled. Like I can actual understand how physical pain would be preferable to this. Under the nervous feelings it is not just merely a little fear but a primal terror. The tapping helped a couple of the issues go away. A couple of the issues still need work, I think because there are lots of things contributing to them.
