Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

Freedom from negative emotions has never been made easier than with this life-changing technique. EFT has impacted countless lives and enriched the lives of people suffering from phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, grief, and a myriad of other negative emotions. EFT works in miraculous ways, as the individual or therapist taps on the same energy meridians or pressure points used in acupuncture. It has effectively eliminated the long-term therapy process and the results have proven to be long-lasting (a permanent cure for PTSD).  Please refer to the “Testimonials” page in this site to read stories from people whose lives have been completely transformed as a result of EFT.

EFT is based on the belief that negative emotions are the result of disruptions in the energy system of the body. Tapping on the energy meridians balances the body’s energy system, resulting in a calming of negative emotions. EFT has been proven to be effective in recovery from addictions and even physical healing. How can this be? By neutralizing negative emotions and balancing the body’s energy, the mind-body connection is restored and holistic healing occurs.

How EFT Works

All the hurts, the trauma, the conditioning that happened to you, happened on the level of the energy that flows through your body. That’s why we need to go deeper than just talking about it. We need to heal it on the level of the body’s energy system, and that’s what EFT does. Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, puts it this way, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”

The old traumas still live in your body, but they live in the frozen energy patterns that were created during the traumatic experiences, not in the memories. Remembering brings those energy patterns back to the surface, and that’s why remembering still upsets you.

EFT brings you out of the distressed state and back into calm tranquility by dissolving the frozen energy patterns. This does not erase the memories; they just don’t bother you any more. A previously upsetting memory becomes an ordinary memory, ‘just something that happened’. You no longer need to organize your life around making sure  ‘that’  never happens again, so you are free to live fully and freely. That’s why it’s called the Emotional Freedom Technique.

If you’re wondering, “Can thoughts really produce physical reactions in the body?”  Try this imagination game:
– imagine a lemon
– cut it in half
– smell it
– squeeze the juice into your mouth

Now notice the extra saliva in your mouth. This is a physical response to a thought.

Traditional talk therapy rearranges your mental blocks. EFT clears them out. Success rates are typically higher than 90%. And, you don’t even have to believe it…….it works anyway.

Transformation and healing is made possible in areas such as the following:

    • Raising self-esteem
    • Healing from grief and loss
    • Addictions
    • Emotional issues
    • Weight loss
    • Disease
    • Pain
    • Stress management
    • Trauma/Post-Traumatic Stress
    • Phobias/fears

Be in the Moment!

It is too easy to get consumed by the daily tasks of being a mom, running a business, taking care of the home, organizing meals, and losing touch with the here and now. It’s easy to find yourself planning out the many other things on your to-do list while you are spending time with your kids. This can cause one to lose the moment. Time goes by so quickly, and in a flash, the many moments that make up “life” are gone. There will always be work to do, always chores to finish, deadlines and responsibilities to live up to. However, moments with your children, friends or family will have a much more lasting impression on everyone if you are fully present. Nobody knows what tomorrow will bring, so be conscious of the moment you are in, breathe it in and savor the experience for what it is.

TAKE ACTION!

1. Out of sight – out of mind

This week try to be aware of the moment for what it is. Keep work at work, and when you are home, really enjoy the time with your loved ones. Play just for the sake of playing. Realize that your work will get done when you designate time for work, at the office. Schedule time to just “be” and put work issues out of your mind, even if for just a short moment.

2. Be in the moment

Say the phrase “Be in the moment” when you find yourself thinking of other things. When playing with your children, enjoying alone time with a significant other, taking a walk, just “be” and relish what you are doing. The more you practice this week, the more natural it will become in your life.

3. Have fun!

Being in the moment will take on a life of its own. Try to bring fun back into everything you do. The more you balance work and play, the more productive and aware you will be in everything you do.

4. Prioritize

This week focus on prioritizing your time. It is easier to “be in the moment” when you know everything else will get done.  Plan your week so you have enough allotted time for work, work-related issues, and play. That way you can fully enjoy each of them knowing the rest won’t be pushed aside.
