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

Believing in Yourself is Crucial for Success

Believe in Yourself!

Reshaping how you see yourself and believing in yourself is crucial for success! We, humans, have a tendency to focus on believing what others say about us instead of believing who we really are. That is how we were programmed, based on our childhood experiences. But, we are not defined by how others see us! And, continuing to believe what others say can hold us back from succeeding in life.

I remember working with one client who was extremely self-sabotaging. She was so unaware of her beauty, inside and out. She was highly-intelligent, beautiful, active, fit, funny, and warm. Yet, she did not recognize any of these qualities. Once she began believing in herself, everything in her life changed for the better! She succeeded at all the things she attempted. This is evidence that believing in yourself is crucial for success. Sometimes we are so off the mark when it comes to how we feel in comparison to how others see us. Most of you wouldn’t treat your worst enemy in the same manner that you treat yourself. Cut yourself some slack and be kinder and gentler.

Are you fairly confident and secure in your own shoes? Do you believe in your abilities and what you have to offer? Or, do you constantly question who you are as a person?  We all have our past, including the experiences that shaped who we are today. If people in your life made hurtful comments over and over, then over time you probably started believing it.  How do you reshape how you see yourself? Are you tired of being overly critical of yourself and your abilities? There is no better time than the present to start believing who you are and what you contribute to those around you. You need to see yourself in a different light and try to replace the negative self-talk with more positive and uplifting dialogue. Make a commitment to yourself to criticize less and accept yourself more.

ACTION STEPS:

1. List your achievements and successes

Make a list of all your achievements. What are you most proud of? Instead of focusing on what you don’t do well, focus on what you have done well. I know that everyone has achieved things in their lives that they should be proud of. Look at this list when feelings of self-doubt begin to arise.

2. Small steps to success

Instead of embarking on large goals that might be difficult to achieve, break them down into smaller tasks. Have a list of smaller goals that you can achieve and feel proud of. By achieving goals you, slowly build up your self-confidence and begin to rely on yourself. Instead of focusing on the 30 pounds you’d love to lose, celebrate two pounds at a time with a pat on your back.

3. Get rid of negative self-talk    

Every time you think negatively about yourself or others, you lower your standards. It is not a very attractive quality to be around someone who is always down on themselves. Start being more aware of your critical voice and replace that voice with positive dialogue. Create an affirmation to “plug” in every time that all-too-familiar voice begins playing in your head.
