EFT and other tools for changing limiting beliefs do require that you find the root cause of your limiting belief (specific event). Now on the other hand hypnosis doesn't address the root cause but just keep repeating the new, wanted belief over and over again till your subconscious soak it in. Am I missing something? Why should I even do the eft, focus blocks etc. if I can just listen the self hypnosis audio for 21-30 days and I'll experience the same result? Or won't I? For example let's take my social anxiety. Why should I tire myself with finding the specific event when I can just listen to the hypnosis? Tim

The principle to consider here is that "Your vibration on any subject always stays where you last left it".
For this reason, if you are not engaging directly with the vibrational/emotional setpoint you want to change, it will always stay where it is.
This is fine if the subject never reactivates. It is also fine if you never leave your Vortex - because you only ever notice your issues when you are outside the Vortex. But staying in the Vortex for the rest of your life is impossible, and undesirable anyway because it goes against the natural expansion of the universe.
So whether you tackle an issue "head on" or just distract yourself from it now simply comes down to one of Time Management.
I know it sounds like a bizarre thing to say (and I've said it a few times before) but it really is that trivial if you think about it.
Let's say that you are in your Vortex and an "issue" is activated within you that makes you feel bad i.e. kicks you out of the Vortex.
Your options now are:
Taking the first case, a meditation session to get you Vortex-aligned again may take, say, 15 minutes. So if you were kicked out of your Vortex because of the issue, say, twice a day, that would be a time investment of 30 minutes to feel better just because of this single issue. You would then have to do this daily...that would mean a time investment of about 183 hours per year to keep that one issue under control.
On the other hand, directly accessing the vibrational cause and cleaning it up can take anywhere between a few minutes (Faster EFT) or 20 minutes (if you are a beginner with Focus Blocks/Wheels). Let's say 20 minutes for this example. But you do it once and then the issue is gone. Your time investment is now 20 minutes for the rest of your life.
So that is a time investment of...
...and we are only talking about one issue here. If you multiply the number of issues you may have, the differences become even more stark. Yes, you may need to spend several hours (or more) initially learning and mastering a clearing method but the time investment still pays off again and again.
Now the question is whether hypnosis is a distraction method or a clearing method.
It really depends.
If the hypnosis, or the self-hypnosis audio, just happens to trigger within you exactly the vibrational cause of your issue, and soothes you regarding it, then it is acting as a clearing method and it is quite likely that repeated listening will clean up your issue forever.
If, however, the hypnosis is only addressing a symptom rather than a cause, you will find yourself needing to listen for the rest of your life. It may be the case that, at some times in your life, it will seem to work more effectively than at other times so you may even be able to stop using it for a few weeks without the subject reactivating. But you will still find yourself needing to return to the hypnosis again and again over your life in order to feel better.
So the way to establish whether you have a distraction method or a clearing method is to consider whether you keep needing to return to the method for the same subject repeatedly. For a distraction method, you will need to.
As to which is better, there's no right or wrong really...it's up to you and how you live your life.
Distraction methods are often easier to apply (for example, just lie back and listen to a self-hypnosis audio every morning) so some people are comfortable making that distraction a part of their daily routine. They are willing to trade-off the time saving against the ease of use.
Because distraction methods often have minimal effort involved, they are also useful just to get started when you get yourself into a vibrational state where you can't even summon the required motivation to use a clearing method. I've found that Paraliminals can be quite helpful for that kick-start.
A Vibrational Twist
Having said all of the above, there is a little twist here.
If you can manage to keep yourself in the vicinity of the Vortex most of the time, you can actually override the principle of "Your vibration on any subject always stays where you last left it"
While you can't stay in the Vortex 100% of the time over your lifetime, you can limit how far out of it you allow yourself to drift.
The Vortex has a kind of magnetic quality to it. If you remain in the vicinity of it, you will find yourself drawn into it. There is no way to force yourself into the Vortex, all you can do is just hang around the edge of it until you feel magnetically drawn in. In the Advanced Focus Blocks Method, you keep doing Positive Aspects until you feel that subtle shift within you indicating Vortex alignment has happened and then you can write out a Rampage of Appreciation to confirm your Vortex entry.
You can use this magnetic quality of the Vortex to prevent yourself being drawn back down to your original vibrational setpoints regarding a particular subject.
In the picture above, it's as though the magnet is preventing the balls from rolling downhill to the right. There is still a (gravitional) force on the balls but the magnetic force overrides them...if the balls are close enough to the magnet.
The practical application of this is that by remaining in the Vortex vicinity (even when out), you can intersect your previous vibrational setpoints on a subject at a better-feeling level than before i.e. you never let the balls drift too far from the magnet.
Abraham tried to get people to employ this approach with their creation of the Virtual Realities method. However, though they pushed it for several months, it never seemed to really catch on that much because people tended to give more attention to their perceived realities (perceived through their 5 physical senses) than any virtual reality concocted mentally for the purposes of feeling better.
Again, it's all a matter of personal choice. You will find yourself drawn to different approaches at different times.

In my experience hypnosis CAN be a good belief changer if you find a professional hypnotist and work with him a few days or even weeks (depends on your problem). I wouldn't go to the first available you can find because he can do more harm than good if he doesn't know what he does.
But i think you are right now at the source of the best tools that somebody could ever find and learn in life. They are right here on this site. You will discover powerful tools that will change your beliefs in matter of minutes sometimes. Just look through this site.
What i hear from your post is you want to change your beliefs and find relief without going back to some specific memories, right?
Is this possible? - Yes, absolutely!
A great tool is Faster EFT which is much more powerful and faster (obviously:) than standard eft. Here is a youtube video to immediately start to clear some blockages up in matter of minutes without having to go through painful memories. Just notice your feelings in your body regarding your issue. Then aim and tap. It's that simple.
I would also highly recommend that you check those belief change tools out (especially manifesting experiment 2, 4 and 5). IMO these are the best tools that you can ever get. I strongly believe that they can make you social anxiety free today or at least tomorrow if you are willing to apply them.
Here is another tool that you might find interesting especially for your social anxiety issue : Go to www.mc2method.com and login with "mc2free". There is an online audio course that helped me with my panic attacks and social anxiety in a very short period of time. Again, you don't have to go through past experiences either here.
I hope this helps :).
hypnosis is like someone else being in control.would you not like being in control,who is in a better position then you to seek and know your self and learn about your self. meditate be aware focus concentrate witness the flow of though and know thy self learn the truth from your self and how it relates.this will bring you the truth that you seek.so let there be light , Be the light that you can be ,experience and enjoy.
