How to Tap your way to Freedom with EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique

Have you ever felt as if you are reliving the same negative pattern in your life? As if you are living your own version of Groundhog Day and you are the star of your own movie? Do negative beliefs, old patterns, anxieties, traumas and emotions seem to be the main plot of your life movie? Do you want to take back control of your life, and no matter how hard you try to change, things just don’t seem to budge? If you feel like something is blocking your progress then YES you are absolutely right, there is a blockage and that blockage is in your energy field. That blockage is an emotional blockage and it is the culprit to everything that is going on for you emotionally, mentally and physically.

Through my first hand experience with negative beliefs, anxiety, anger, sadness, guilt and the list goes on and on, my therapist suggested that I have an EFT Session with her. I hadn’t heard about it before but I was willing to give it a try. The main issue we worked on was this overwhelming feeling of guilt that I had and I had felt that way for quite a while. After fifteen minutes of tapping the overwhelming feeling that I had was gone and the guilt was no longer there. I was hooked after that session and I continued to have EFT sessions and worked on clearing the limiting beliefs and negativity that I was carrying around with me. It was through my own positive experiences of EFT that had me hooked and I had to learn more and I enrolled into an EFT course and started using it with my clients and they have had the same breakthroughs that I experienced.

EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique works on the body’s energy (or meridian) channels. By stimulating certain points in your body, you are able to access the brain’s stress and fear response and lessen their affect on you. 

Did you know that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system in which each meridian point represents a series of specific emotions. EFT focuses it’s attention on removing these energy blockages in order to restore a sense of well-being. The process of EFT has been the source of profound healings and Banner11indicates that negative emotions do cause a disruption in the body’s energy system. 

How Did EFT Develop?

EFT was developed by a psychiatrist named Gary Craig in the 1990s. Gary Craig was a non-denominational ordained minister and a certified master practitioner in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming). He figured out that tapping on meridian points can be used to treat an emotional issue and its success is due to its simplicity and effectiveness to healing an emotional blockage.

How Does EFT Work?

To understand how EFT works it is important to recognise that your body has an energy system. Past trauma, anxiety, depression, excess weight, anger, sadness, guilt, jealousy or any other negative emotion, fear or phobia causes blockages in your energy system. EFT works by tapping on certain meridian points in the body while addressing an identified issue or problem. Using the power of positive statements and the rhythm of tapping specific energy points, the body’s energy is able to be restored and allows emotional healing to happen. Just as acupuncture uses needles to apply pressure and balance energy flow, EFT uses tapping with fingers on meridian points to simulate acupressure.
