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.

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.

  • Raising self-esteem
  • Healing from grief and loss
  • Addictions

“To Love Oneself is the Beginning of a Lifelong Romance.” 

Some have deemed National Boost Your Self-Esteem month as a “weird and unusual” celebration, but, we see it as an excuse to self-reflect and build confidence.  The National Association for Self-Esteem (NASE) defines self-esteem as “The experience of being capable of meeting life’s challenges and being worthy of happiness.”  A healthy or high self-esteem will not only allow you to live a happier life, but it will also strengthen your ability to handle challenges, build your tolerance, motivate you to take risks, and encourage a life of love.  When participating in self-refection and understanding your own self-esteem, it is important to note that we often see ourselves through the eyes of others, thus, our self-esteem can be built upon or broken down by our surroundings.  Charles Taylor author of Sources of the Self: The Making of the Modern Identity and Multiculturalism writes, “We define our identity always in dialogue with, sometimes in struggle against, the things our significant others want to see in us. Even after we outgrow some of these others (our parents, for instance) and they disappear from our lives, the conversation with them continues within us as long as we live.”  Before taking the steps to boost your self-esteem, we encourage you to take a look at the people in and around your life that may be influencing the image of yourself that is being reflected.  Don’t look at this task as a profound, life-transitioning challenge.  Just a few simple changes can make a difference and can help you live a life of hope, harmony, and happiness with a healthy self-esteem at the core.  A few tips:

  • Surround yourself with positive people that will reflect beauty back to you
  • Be positive, even when it seems like a challenge (it takes less muscle in your face to smile than frown)
  • Journal about your daily activities and thoughts – highlight the positive and explore where the negative stems
  • Do an activity that you are good at
  • Celebrate the little things – a productive day at work or getting all the laundry done deserves a celebration every once in awhile
  • Question your negativity or doubt – remember we are sometimes wrong
  • Stop thinking about yourself – do something for someone else
  • Relax – turn off and just breathe
  • Lighten up – Don’t be so hard on yourself!
