So in my quest to continue to give you information on proven techniques to help people with their emotional issues, cure phobias, ora myriad of other things, I give you EFT Tapping. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique.
EFT tapping originated in the West in the 80’s and was used as a non invasive technique to acupuncture. Using the some of the same points acupuncture does, you actually tap those designated areas which activate your meridians. there are said to be 14 points, but sometimes you see less. Points 1,3,4 and 8 mirror to the other side of your body as well.
These are the points that are used. Yes, they are the same for guys. There is a certain order they get tapped which is listed and a certain ‘dialogue’ which should be used when using the EFT method which I will go over shortly.
Totally by coincidence(or was it a coincidence…), the 9th Annual World Tapping Summit starts today and it totally online and is totally free!! It will continue to be available for another 24 hours after it is over still for free, then you can purchase. It is being held by one of the bigger ‘tappers’ out there, Nick Ortner, who has been doing this Summit for the last 9 years.
In the mean time, a little more history.
So as I said, with a history of acupuncture, Roger Callahan first used EFT successfully in the ’80’s by curing a woman’s fear of water. It actually started off as TFT(Thought Field Therapy) but was more streamlined into EFT which was a much more user friendly version.
Emotional freedom technique re-energizes and balances your body’s meridian system clearing long held blockages in those meridians. It can dissipate negative emotions and can address physical challenges you may have, too. Things like anger, stress, anxiety, fear and frustration can be curbed as well. sometimes immediately when shown how to do by a professional.
I personally have had some progress with both Nick Ortner of the Tapping Solution who is holding the Summit I spoke of and then there is Brad Yates who I enjoy on youtube although he also has a website, BradYates.net
So the dialogue of how you speak while tapping is a bit different. You will understand when you hear it but it goes something like this:
- First of all, I always start with what Brad Yates says which is
“I am taking full responsibility for my own well being” when I begin to tap.
- “Even though I have this _____________, I deeply and completely accept myself.”
So you would put in the blank there whatever you are having issues with. It can be a headache, trying to quit smoking or alcohol, anger towards your mother or your mate, anxiety, fear of public speaking… the possibilities are endless, really. What is important here is the idea that you are acknowledging your issue and have self acceptance for it.
I suggest you go to Youtube or one of the sites I mentioned and watch…or actually follow along. That is what they are there for. When Brad and Nick does the tapping they purposely leave time in there along the demo for you to follow along. They both do great work and they are not even actually doctors!!
EFT tapping goes on the premise that ‘the cause of negative Emotions are just disruptions in the body’s energy system’ meaning your meridians. Many people have benefited from EFT tapping and it can help you, too!! To heal or optimize!!
So to finish up here, this is where I did my research for this article for you to read up on. I could not cover all the material, but gave you a jumpstart.
So if you have had any luck with tapping, let’s hear some stories!! If you haven’t it does not hurt or cost a dime to try. If you think this EFT info will help someone you know and love (or just know), share it!! I am here to help(I hope I have proven that by now) and would love your help to help!!
We are all in this together, right?
