"Stepping-stone memory" is a phrase I use to describe an interim memory between the original bad memory, and the ideal new memory, when you're using FasterEFT.
The Purpose of Stepping-Stone Memories
Stepping-stone memories are, I believe, essential for ensuring that all subconscious references are changed, regarding a particular issue.
For example: If you were bullied when you were 5 years old, and your dad didn't stand up for you, that memory may be providing the following references:
1. My dad doesn't stand up for me - which means I'm worthless.
2. I was bullied - which means I'm weak.
Some people will use Faster EFT to change the memory to where their dad did stand up for them. And that's great - that means their subconscious now has a reference that their dad stood up for them, and perhaps that will contribute towards a structure for "I'm worthy".
But if the memory remains that way, the subconscious still has a reference that you were bullied - so that is still providing the "evidence" for the belief "I'm weak".
If, on the other hand, you use FasterEFT to change the memory directly to where weren't bullied in the first place, that's great - and your subconscious will no longer have that reference providing "evidence" that you're weak... but it also won't have a reference for your dad standing up for you.
The answer? Stepping-stone memories!
How to Use Stepping-Stone Memories:
Using the example above...
1. First, use FasterEFT to change the memory to where you were bullied AND your dad stood up for you and protected you. This will change that reference in your subconscious - giving it proof that you you are worthy.
2. Practice that stepping-stone memory three times in a row.
3. Now, use FasterEFT to change the stepping-stone memory to where you weren't bullied in the first place! :) You were never bullied. You were popular; and the "bullies" are now friends and admirers. And you see your dad with you, proud of you, and you are having fun doing stuff together. This is now your new memory.
4. Practice that new memory three times in a row.
5. Write that new memory down, and practice it 12 times a day for the first week.
Using More than One Stepping-Stone Memory
You can use more than one stepping-stone memory - for example: if your father left when you were 3 years old, and then came back when you were 10 years old, and was abusive, and your mother never protected you - here are example stepping-stone memories you could create, using Faster EFT...
1st Stepping-Stone Memory:
When your father came back and was abusive, your mother protected you.
2nd Stepping-Stone Memory:
Now, when your father comes back, he's not abusive - he's loving and affectionate, so happy to see you, and tells you how much he missed you.
Now, change that to where your father never left in the first place.
Using these stepping-stone memories means you are changing multiple references in your subconscious along the way, with each step, until you arrive at the ideal new, positive and empowering reference - the final New Memory.
Points to Bear in Mind
As you change memories, whether they're stepping-stone or the ultimate new memory, keep reminding yourself:
* The subconscious cannot tell the difference between reality and imagination
* The subconscious cannot judge something as unrealistic
* The subconscious cannot use logic or reason
- which means the subconscious will believe whatever you give it. It's only your conscious mind that knows the difference. Just like your conscious mind knows that a scary movie is just a movie, but your subconscious triggers the "fight-freeze-flight" emergency state in your body while you're watching - as if the threat is real!
