You can think of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT, or tapping) as a getting back to basics way of healing yourself. 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.
Natural healing methods like EFT are making a comeback because a lot of people are also concerned about the pharmaceutical/health professionals’ relationship.
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.
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. Emotional Freedom Techniques 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.
Control over Addictions
Are you addicted alcohol? Do you find it impossible to stop smoking, even though you know it's destroying your body and killing you? Do you crave food, or suffer from some other unhealthy addiction? If so, you should 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.
EFT works very well for emotional and spiritual release. Interestingly, 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.
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 closure with any type of physical or mental trauma that is negatively impacting your life.
It is a beautifully simple yet effective tool you can use anytime, experience it yourself.
