EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), also called Tapping, is a healing technique that can cure physical, emotional, and performance problems. The idea behind EFT is that emotional stress can diminish the body's natural healing ability. Like acupuncture, the techniques utilize the Chinese meridian system, which consists of a complicated network of energy circuits running through our bodies.
But unlike acupuncture, EFT is directed at curing the negative emotions caused by a disruption in our body’s energy circuits. These negative emotions can also result in physical and performance difficulties. EFT does not use needles or any invasive implements like acupuncture does.
EFT utilizes two simultaneous processes: While we concentrate on the specific emotional, physical, or performance issue to be fixed, we tap certain meridian points on our body with our fingertips. When correctly performed, EFT combines the benefits of conventional cognitive therapy with the physical benefits of meridian stimulation. This often results in quicker solutions to problems.
I have taught EFT in my psychic workshops since early 2000. People who have employed it have reported staggering success. Tapping is very easy to learn and can be utilized anytime and anywhere. It is a true “do-it-yourself” process, and the only one I am aware of that can cure a whole realm of ailments.
Learning to use EFT is simple. It blends focused wording with a nine-point tapping sequence. The focused wording concentrates our mind on the issue we want to address, and this, in turn, points our mind to the energy disruptions that we need to clear. Once we are concentrating on the emotional, physical, or performance matter we wish to improve, tapping is used to stimulate the energy pathways, thereby clearing the resulting energy disruptions causing our problem.
Unlike the hundreds of points used in acupuncture, EFT uses only nine points (some on both sides of our body), which are located at or near the end points of the energy pathways (meridians) or at points along meridians that are close to our skin.
