Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
I am a great believer in the power of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and it’s benefits. It has worked wonders in my life and for my clients. To make the profound and lasting changes we truly desire, I believe we must address where the related fears and beliefs were first created and got stuck- in our energy system. I implement EFT in an intuitive and creative fashion allowing options for each individual or groups unique situation.
Energy is the life force. When our energy is flowing freely, we can experience health and wellness. When our energy is blocked, a list of undesirable outcomes can be experienced. Energy techniques, such as EFT, can get our energy moving and clear out the blocks!
Created by Gary Craig, PhD., EFT involves an easy to learn finger-tapping sequence focusing on certain points on the body. This is similar to acupuncture, however, no needles are involved! While focusing in, with or without words, to the issue at hand, we tap on these designated points. This tapping allows the energy to flow more freely and shift to more desirable states. EFT is gentle and effective. It has shown to be effective for, but not limited to the following: stress, fears, phobias, trauma, pain, disturbing memories, unwanted habits, insomnia and addictions.
EFT can be used for enhancement of positive feelings or situations with equally profound results. EFT is beneficial for adults, children, and even animals!
Fear and stress are two of t he most common energy blockers. We usually experience evidence of these blocks in the form of symptoms that cause us to reach out for help. These can include: physical pain, dis-ease, addictions, undesired behaviors, insomnia, anxiety, panic, difficult emotions, fears, doubts, feeling alone or isolated, not living the life we truly desire, feeling like our true self is in hiding, feeling overwhelmed, stuck memories and traumatic events, ending each day in despair that nothing will ever change might be included on your list.
The theory behind EFT is based on founder, Gary Craig’s discovery statement, “All negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system.” The belief that our physical pains and diseases are connected with our emotions led Gary to create the following statement:
“Our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases.”
EFT is easy to learn and can have dramatic results in freeing your mind and body from these unwanted emotions, conditions and physical pain.
We are energy beings. We continually take energy in to our body and mind every day. When the energy is flowing freely through us, we can experience a sense of health and wellness. When there is a disruption or block in the body’s energy system, we can experience an array of emotional and physical upsets, pain and imbalance. Energy healing techniques, such as EFT, can get your energy moving freely and can remove these energy blocks which can allow you to feel emotionally and physically better. When these energetic blocks are removed, you can feel clearer and able to make better decisions for yourself and move past old hurts and traumas. Opening up the flow of energy through our bodies can have beneficial results for the health and balance of our bodies, minds and spirits. This can facilitate movement when we are stuck energetically offering many welcome benefits and results.
There can be many aspects to a problem. Getting your energy moving, discovering the energetic block that is causing the problem and releasing it is the main focus of an EFT session. Removing this block and any related stress can allow you to finally resolve the problem and move forward. One of the wonderful aspects of EFT is that after you learn the techniques, you can continue to use it for yourself.
Chances are you have invested time, effort and money in your search for emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. What I have found to be true for EFT is that it can offer fast results without a complicated therapeutic process. There are rare instances where the anticipated results are not achieved. Each person is unique and will have different experiences. However, with some creative work on the practitioner’s part, even some of these situations find welcome outcomes. For the majority, however, EFT surprises and satisfies even the most skeptical.
