Maggie’s Decision Destroyer Shortcut

This post has more information about Maggie’s Decision Destroyer, including the importance of wording and the shortcut that I use. For the first post about Maggie’s Decision Destroyer, click here.

When Maggie Adkins first invented “Maggie’s Decision Destroyer”, she rang me to tell me about it. This was on a Monday evening. On the following Wednesday, Maggie and I were due to go to the local monthly EFT meeting in Adelaide. It was Maggie’s turn to give a talk at this meeting. She rang me to tell me that she was going to talk about her new discovery that she called “Maggie’s Decision Destroyer”, although she has since called it by a few other names. She said she wanted to run it past me to find out what I thought about it.

After we finished the telephone conversation, I tried out Maggie’s Decision Destroyer on myself for the first time. For an exercise, I chose the Wednesday meeting. I knew I was going and I wanted to find out if Maggie’s Decision Destroyer agreed that I should go. The alternative was to stay home with my wife. So I tapped on, “It will give me more joy to go to the meeting” and the figure was 4 out of 10. Then I tapped on, “It will give me more joy to stay at home with my wife” and the figure was 8 out of 10.

These figures suggested I should stay home and not go to the meeting. But as I said, I knew I was going, no matter what Maggie’s Decision Destroyer said.

So I wondered if changing the wording of the statements would change the result. So I tapped on, “It is best and most beneficial for me to go to the meeting” and the figure was 8 out of 10. Then I tapped on, “It is best and most beneficial for me to stay home with my wife” and the figure was 4 out of 10.

The change in the wording reversed the resulting figures!

So I went to the meeting and listened to Maggie giving her wonderful talk about Maggie’s Decision Destroyer and after the talk I spoke about my experience with changing the wording.

I have used Maggie’s Decision Destroyer so many times now that I have developed a shortcut that works well for me (see below).

EFT Tapping Points Maggie' Decision Destroyer

 

Wal’s Shortcut For Maggie’s Decision Destroyer

Step 1 – think of your choices

For this example I will use the case mentioned above, whether to go to the meeting or not and use the words “best and most beneficial”, which seem to be generally the best words to use.

Alternative 1 – It is best and most beneficial for me to go to the meeting
Alternative 2 – It is best and most beneficial for me to stay home

Step 2 – Do a round of tapping on Alternative 1

Look at the image above showing the 7 points to tap. Each point is tapped for as long as it takes to say, “It is best and most beneficial for me to go to the meeting”.

Step 3 – How does it feel out of 10?

In this case 10 out of 10 feels very good and 0 feels very uncomfortable.

Step 4 – Do a round of tapping on Alternative 2

Each point is tapped for as long as it takes to say, “It is best and most beneficial for me to stay home”.

Step 5 – How does it feel out of 10?

Again, 10 out of 10 feels very good and 0 feels very uncomfortable.

Step 6 – Decision time – Ask yourself which one feels better?

Usually the difference  is obvious. Sometimes the figures will be almost identical and I find in these cases it often doesn’t matter which one you choose.

Thanks for this Wal, I find this such a valuable tool. And very interesting with wording too – when I tapped on whether it was ‘best most beneficial’ to let my daughter stay at a friend’s house it felt better to say no, but when I changed the wording to ‘best most beneficial for all’, it felt better to say yes – suspect that the first wording was just tapping on what was best for me and not considering all concerned 🙂
