That evening, I hooked up two groups of four people during Dawson's breakout session, "Dream to Freedom: Using Symbols and Dreams to Process Emotional Trauma," and monitored their brainwaves before, during, and after several rounds of EFT tapping. In some people, the movements involved in tapping on the head and face distorted the brainwave patterns, but not in everyone.
In one woman, anesthesiologist Agapi Ermides, there was minimal sEMG artifact, so later on I did an in-depth analysis on her brainwave patterns. (See this report on the Mind Mirror Studies
page of the IAM website.)
During the four rounds of tapping, Agapi produced distinctly sustained surges of gamma in the range of 35-65 hertz, which frequencies are associated with brain coherence and the rewiring of neural circuitry.
According to Mind Mirror Summary statistics, the primary result of these gamma increases was in her Awakened Mind patterns. Her eyes closed Awakened Mind pattern, from the Opening to Closing baselines, increased from 66 to 88 percent on Training Level 5—in other words, from a low score to a high statistical value equivalent to that of long-term meditators. Yet Agapi is a non-meditator
Just as Gary and Donna found in their studies with Dawson – see the Mind Mirror Studies
page – EFT clears blocks, relaxes the brain and body, and shifts people into higher states of consciousness.
