Decision Making Using Maggie’s Decision Destroyer

EFT Master Maggie Adkins

Maggie’s passion is to help people reclaim their lives as authentic, abundant, Infinite Beings. She returned “home” to Australia in June, 2006, after living and teaching EFT in the U.S. for 4 years. During her stay in the US she attended all of Gary Craig’s EFT and Serious Disease conferences. She feels that EFT practitioners owe it to their clients and workshop participants to continue taking the work deeper and deeper for themselves. She says, “We can only work with our clients in their fear and trauma to the extent we have explored our own fears and traumas.” When it comes to decision making, Maggie is awesome. But even she used to have difficulty making a decision when the choices were similar. Then she came up with a brilliant decision making process called “Maggie’s Decision Destroyer”. I will let Maggie explain her decision making process in her own words.

Decision Making Using Maggie’s Decision Destroyer

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) are primarily known for their ability to release pain, phobias, fear, past traumas and negative beliefs about yourself and the world. However, making clear decisions is another fascinating usage for this amazing technique. And you can put it to good use easily in your day to day decision making.

Decision Making Examples From Clients

Some examples of problems my clients have resolved using this easy and powerful decision making technique are:

  • Is it best for me to rent again or buy a house now?
  • I have two possible names for my business – which one is the best?
  • Want to go out to dinner – is Thai or good old Aussie food best for me tonight?
  • I don’t really want to go to that meeting – is it best for me to go or stay home?

Decision Making Made Simple

The above are just a few examples to get you started thinking about how my Decision Destroyer decision making process can be of value to you. You can use this for any decision that you find difficult. It’s just this simple.

Step by Step Decision Making

Step 1 – Write Down Your Choices

It is important that you actually write down your choices instead of just thinking about them. When you write something down, you can actually see it and you will most probably use more descriptive and accurate words.

Let’s say you need to choose an estate agent for the sale of a house and you are not sure which agent to choose. You may have to decide between 2 or 3 or 4 different agents. Write down each choice as below:

  • “Robby is my estate agent, he does a great job, the house sells and I can move on.”
  • “Jan is my estate agent, she does a great job, the house sells and I can move on.”

Please note that the above affirmations are very specific. They name the person, say he/she does a great job, the house actually sells and the person can move on.

Step 2 – Find A Quiet Place to Sit & Tap

Now that you have written your choices down in a clear affirmation, find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed for 5-10 minutes. Using the first affirmation, say the entire affirmation once at each of the EFT points.

Decision Making – How And Where To Tap

I’ll give you the tapping points here, just in case you are brand new to EFT. Lightly tap with your fingertips on each EFT point about 7-10 times while saying your complete affirmation. While you are doing this process, tune into your inner voice and your body sensations. Often the body will get calmer or go into a little anxiety in response to this process. This is decision making by allowing the body to tell you which decision is best for you.

Tapping Points For Decision Making

Tap on these points in order while saying your affirmation once at each point:

  • Karate Chop Point – side of hand by little finger. In middle between wrist joint and first joint for little finger.
  • Top of head – tap on crown of head
  • Eyebrow – tap just above where the eyebrow starts
  • Side of eye – about an inch back from where your eye ends
  • Under eye – about an inch under your eye
  • Under your nose – in middle of your face, just under your nose
  • Under your lips – just under your lips in middle of face
  • Collarbone – just under the beginning of the bone that goes around your neck and almost meets in the middle of your throat. Go to one side or the other and tap.
  • Under arm – about a hand span down from your armpit.
  • Wrist – about where you would wear a watch on top or bottom of your arm

Step 3 – How does it feel?

The above is one round of EFT. Take a nice deep breath and maybe some water and see how your body feels. What is it telling you?

Step 4 – Repeat steps 2 and 3

After a minute or two, do the same process with the other affirmation you have written down. Note the difference in how you feel. Often there is a big difference, making decision making easy.

Step 5 – Decision Making

Most people are surprised at the difference they feel right away. If you cannot tell which decision is best for you, repeat the process. If you are brand new to this, you may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Continue listening to your inner voice and tuning in to how your body feels.

Tune In For Decision Making

Our body is a fine diagnostic tool for how we are living our life. Yet we have tuned it out over the years and then wonder why we have pain or discomfort. If you do this process and listen to your body, you will most probably be both surprised and amazed at how easy decision making becomes.

Decision Maker problem solving sounds like a very interesting concept. Using affirmations really does work to help your positivity.

An interesting post. I would agree that our bodies are a wealth of knowledge and it is only a matter of tuning in. I had not heard of EFT before but it does make sense and anything that can assist me in tuning in/ being present to myself and my surroundings can only be good. I look forward to my next decision making.

G’day Wal,
Been using meditation for 5-6 years and find it’s great for ” centering ” myself. I’ll look into the tapping techniques and see where that leads.
Thanks for this introduction.
