EFT is one of several natural healing techniques that is far less invasive than traditional medical treatment.
It is extremely effective, requires no shots, doctors or medicine, you can perform it on yourself anywhere at just about any time, and the results for some have been absolutely astounding.
You can think of the Emotional Freedom Techniques or Tapping as a getting back to basic ways of healing. Many people are tired of the idea that you can simply throw medication at a problem to heal it.
It seems that every medication your doctor prescribes has some side effect that needs to be treated with more medication
Emotional Freedom Techniques work on the following premise:
When your body’s natural energy system is disrupted, blocked or imbalanced, your emotional state is disturbed.
This can lead to mental and physical problems as well as emotional issues, because when your emotional state is unhealthy, your body’s ability to heal itself is reduced.
Tapping resets the natural flow of energy in your body, restoring your immune system and emotions to healthy states. In this way, EFT is a natural healing tool that is globally recognized as an effective treatment for emotional, physical and performance issues.
EFT allows you to tune into the cause of a particular physical, emotional or mental problem in your life. Then, through stimulation of the meridian points where energy flows through your body, physically tapping at those points restores your life force energy to a healthy and natural state.
Remarkably, this self-healing technique can correct a host of poor health conditions.
Thousands of years ago Chinese spiritualists discovered that the human body functions because of a powerful energy which flows through all living things. When you don’t understand why you are feeling grumpy, tired, weak or sick, it is because your energy has been disturbed or blocked.
Tapping is a simple physical process. You lightly tap your fingertip on different parts of your body, and over time, you signal your mind and body that this process is balancing your energy flow. EFT has been proven as an effective healing technique for mental and physical health issues which have not responded positively to other alternative and traditional treatment methods.
How Can EFT Help You?
Some of the benefits you receive from EFT tapping are hinted at by its very name. E.F.T was so named because tapping can free you from negative emotions, thoughts and feelings. EFT has also been used for physical health issues that have not responded to traditional treatments. Listed below are just a few of the recorded benefits this complementary and alternative-healing practice delivers.
Stress and Anxiety Relief
External and internal sources can cause stress in your life. Sometimes you don’t know why you are anxious.
You can’t spot the stressor that is causing such a disturbance in your life.
Stress has been directly connected to higher levels of heart problems, obesity and other indicators of poor health.
Stress-relief is one of the most widely recognized benefits of EFT.
EFT works very well for emotional and spiritual release. It has also been used for pain relief, and as a way to help people cope with pain.
In some cases, chronic back pain that has been around for years disappears quickly after a few EFT tapping sessions.
In other cases, pain that was debilitating, sometimes leading to immobility, had a much lesser impact on a person’s life when tapping was applied.
Attaining success and wealth
Your emotional state dictates everything in your life. When your energy is not flowing properly, you think bad thoughts, have negative emotions, and can’t see the path to success, wealth and abundance. EFT tapping returns you to the “you” that was meant to be. You reach a naturally healthy state where any type of block in your life, holding you back from success, wealth or any other desired goal, is removed.
Do you crave food, or suffer from some other unhealthy addiction?
Are you addicted alcohol? Do you find it impossible to stop smoking, even though you know it’s destroying your body and killing you? If so, you could consider EFT tapping.
Unhealthy addictions are almost always a sign of some internal emotional or spiritual problem. The emotional freedom you get from tapping benefits you in a number of ways, notably by returning your control over addictive behavior.
Trauma happens for a number of reasons.
You may have experienced a life of trauma because of a childhood abuse or some other bad experience.
Physical trauma, after a car accident for example, is also very difficult to deal with.
When you lose a loved one, this emotional and spiritual trauma can be absolutely devastating. EFT allows you to reach acceptance, peace and closure with any type of physical or mental trauma that is negatively impacting your life.
More and more people are experiencing that Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has the power to change lives in powerful and positive ways. Rather than relying on the healthcare system and psychologists to solve your ills, you can begin to take responsibility for their own emotional and physical health. Too often we look for answers ‘out there’ and EFT helps us find the answers within.
Because it is versatile, powerful, effective and most of all, simple, EFT is one of the best of the energy therapies, and is gaining a lot of attention. One of its most intriguing attributes is that it is so versatile, because it can profoundly address so many physical and emotional problems. It can even be used in business situations for addressing general problem-solving. It works by changing the energy systems flowing through the body as it utilizes the focus of the mind toward addressing the issue at hand.
We know that how we think has a direct connection to our well-being. When we engage in negative thinking or allow ourselves to dwell in the low energies of anger, fear, doubt, hate, etc., that kind of thinking affects our body chemistry in subtle and not-so-subtle ways and affects the normal flow of energy throughout the body. Disruptions of energy flow to the body’s overall energy system, if allowed to continue for long periods of time, lead to physical and/or emotional ailments. Alternatively, thinking positive thoughts raises the general energy levels of the body and allows the free flowing of healing energy within the body.
How does EFT work? Without the use of needles as in acupuncture, EFT uses a similar form of tapping on the energy systems of the body at various meridian points of the head, face and body. At the same time as we are tapping on the meridian points, we say aloud a phrase that is an affirmation relating to the issue being addressed. The simple process of tapping at the meridian points starts a releasing of the negativity, allowing the energy to flow freely once more.
Amazingly, the process takes effect very quickly. It only takes one minute to go through one round of tapping. One round involves tapping on each of the various points in the sequence. Depending on how deeply ingrained the symptoms are, we usually allow about three to five rounds of tapping and saying affirmations at the same time. It only takes this short amount of time for you to feel a definite raising of energy levels. If combined with some breathing techniques, the effect can even be more powerful, especially for issues of anxiety or phobias.
EFT can be an excellent tool in working with children. Since children inherently have fewer inhibitions than adults, they readily take to EFT’s offbeat process and the creativity that EFT affords. You will find they tend to bring humor into the picture, and humor always seems to make the healing process go easier and more rapid. It is always good to adopt a more lighthearted approach when using EFT. It helps not to take yourself and your issues too seriously. Laughter can facilitate the healing process by defusing old issues.
With its marvelous versatility, after mastering the basics, it is useful for letting go of all sorts of negative emotions. You will be able to get relief from physical symptoms and make positive changes in just about all areas of your life. It can be used to increase the speed of attaining goals, such as manifesting more money, implementing a healthier lifestyle, and making improvements in your relationships, among many other uses.
For rapid life improvement in so many different areas, don’t pass EFT by. You could be passing up great potential for enriching your life in areas you have scarcely imagined.
