What Can EFT Help?
Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as EFT Tapping or simply Tapping, is a combination of ancient Chinese acupressure combined with modern psychology through the statements made while Tapping. EFT Tapping is relatively easy to learn, and once you know how to do it the results can be incredible. Physical pain and disease are highly connected to negative emotions, and Tapping can create long lasting results for a multitude of issues, including:
Tapping is able to work for so many different things by exploring the emotional issues that might be underneath the problems you’re experiencing. It can improve how you feel about yourself, get rid of limiting beliefs, help you work through past traumas, and move on from things that are holding you back. The goal with Tapping is to realign the body, mind, and spirit in order to let go of negative emotions and the tension they cause, and to move forward in a positive and healing direction.
Specifically, EFT Tapping utilizes the meridian system within the body. Each meridian has several acupressure points along its path, and by focusing on a specific issue while Tapping these points, we are sending a signal to the amygdala. The amygdala is the area of the brain responsible for emotions, survival instincts, and memory. Perceived threats such as stress or negative responses from others stimulate the amygdala and can create chronic stress. The idea behind Tapping is to reprogram your response to these threats, focus on the anger, sadness, or whatever other emotion is holding you down, and to send a signal to the amygdala that tells us we’re safe.
You can’t find a solution for a problem if you’re too focused on just the problem itself. During EFT Tapping, you are bringing up feelings and emotions that you want to clear, and really focusing on problems you want to resolve. For example, when you are stressed, talking about it while you stimulate the acupressure points creates a calming sensation that helps prevent these stressful thoughts from triggering a negative response in the future, and makes way for more positive and empowering thoughts. EFT Tapping can be hugely beneficial for many aspects of your life and help guide you on the path to living the best life possible.
