EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique

IMG_1334I’ve been on my spiritual healing path for many, many years now and a most amazing tool I’ve found is EFT. It is one of the most effective tools to overcome anything that you may have an issue with. Perhaps there’s something that you too have resisted healing in your life? Something that keeps reoccurring? Sound familiar?

It’s a very simple technique to use and highly effective! The process is to tap on different acupressure points on the body while talking about a particular issue that is bothering you. As you do this, you release the emotional attachment you feel to that issue.

My introduction to EFT happened about 25 years or so ago, maybe longer. My back had gone out, and I was in deep shuddering pain with every step I took. It was the closest thing to being bed ridden I’d experienced and it was awful!

My massage therapist was close by and I called her to see if she was able to fit me in to help relieve some of this pain. Luckily she was able to see me and so off I went to her office, moving at a snails pace. (I am not a high pain threshold type person).

Another practitioner friend of hers was there and asked me if i would be willing to try out a new modality that she had just learned about. “Sure,” I said. ” anything to ease my discomfort is worth a try!”  So, here’s what we did:

First, we measured my pain on a scale of 1 to 10. ( I felt it was a 10.) Then she had me say a script, like “Even though my back is hurting, I still deeply love and accept myself.” ( This is just an example, each person says what pertains to their situation.)

(At first she had to tap on my body as I wasn’t able to move very well but after a couple of rounds I felt better and was able to do it myself.)

While I was saying the script she would be tapping on my points which are:  Side of hand (karate chop), top of head, top of eyebrow, side of eye, underneath eye, under nose, chin, chest, (like Tarzan did), under breast, and about 4 inches under arm pit. Keep talking and repeating this process until the pain lessens or the emotional charge has gone down considerably.

Amazingly, the pain lessened considerably after only a few rounds! It didn’t go away completely but it was manageable and I knew I was going to be okay.

EFT works! It has helped me with every emotion I can think of and any body pain or issue as well. I’m not saying it is a cure all but it sure takes the emotional charge out of being uncomfortable and it’s empowering!   Examples to use it on are sadness, grief, anxiety, pain (emotional and physical), you get the idea. There is a correlation between our emotional state and how our bodies feel, it’s all connected and we are all connected to each other too.
