Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is beneficial for releasing negative thoughts, and behaviours
which have become stored in our bodies on a cellular level.
A person’s emotional well-being is completely interlinked with their overall health and physical state. Our mental health plays a significant role in our healing ability and our physical health.
The origins of EFT or tapping are said to have been developed in ancient Chinese medicine as acupuncture was being discovered. Acupuncture is a healing method that utilises energy pathways in the body known as energy meridians. Acupuncture is mainly used to treat physical ailments and not typically psychological issues, such as with EFT.
The practice is based on the same energy meridians that have been utilised in traditional acupuncture; however, no needles are involved. You simply use your fingertips to gently tap on their meridians in order to generate kinetic energy into these particular meridians on mainly the head and the chest area.
While tapping on these points, you think about a certain problem in your life you wish to overcome; possibly an addiction, a chronic pain or a traumatic event. The first stage involves accepting that problem or unwanted emotion and tapping on it. Eventually, while holding that image in your mind, you can voice positive affirmations while tapping in order to clear the blockage.
The purpose of voicing positive affirmations and tapping on your energy meridians is to restore your body and mind’s balance by short circuiting the emotional blockage from your body’s bioenergy system. Once the blockage is released and balance is attained, it is possible for physical and emotional problems to heal and optimum health to reign.
Positive EFT is really good for maintaining that balance
Being aware of the electromagnetic energy that constantly flows through our body and regulates our health has recently been recognised in our Western culture.
Benefits of EFT
EFT has many benefits besides being a healing technique. It is also safe, simple and easy to do and there is no special equipment required. The wonderful thing is that many individuals can do treatment sessions on their own in the comfort of their own home.
EFT has been successfully used to treat a myriad of conditions. Tapping has been used to help with PTSD (or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), to stop smoking, to help with emotional fears and stressors and many other issues.
Initially, it can be beneficial to work with a practitioner in order to help you identify issues to work on or if you are dealing with a significant trauma or a difficult situation. All my EFT sessions are held on Zoom.
Calming Your Mind
Tapping is an effective tool for soothing or calming your body physically or your mind mentally or emotionally. During our time together, you will learn techniques for doing this. It is very liberating to be able to rely on yourself and not someone else for calming yourself down. Being responsible for how you are feeling and thinking as opposed to waiting for someone else to change their behaviour, attitude or mood so that you can feel better is very empowering.
Releasing Negative Factors
EFT is an excellent tool in your arsenal for preventing disease. Not only does it improve the energy flow within the body and stimulate the energy meridians in the process, but it helps to completely ground your body's electrical energy system by fully connecting you to your physical body.
Living with constant negative energy can have extremely detrimental effects on your overall health. In order to heal it is necessary to release negativity and surround yourself with healthy and positive people and environments.
EFT can be used by anybody of any age. Parents can even tap on babies. People have successfully used EFT for many things including to manage stress and anxiety, overcome fears and phobias, lose weight and even deal with physical pain. Contact me today to begin your journey to freedom.
