Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, is the psychological acupressure technique that optimizes emotional health. Although it’s often overlooked, emotional health is absolutely essential to physical health and healing. Regardless of how devoted we are to a nutritional diet, exercise, and healthy lifestyle, our bodies can’t achieve their ideal healing and preventive powers if emotional barriers stand in the way.
EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments, but without the needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest.
This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the emotional block(s) from our body’s bio-energy system, thus restoring balance to mind and body—a vital component for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.
Just yesterday when I was teaching a Reiki Level 2 class, I sensed the student on the table had significant pent up emotions. I requested permission from her to gently tap with my fingertips above her eyebrows, temples, beneath her eyes, under her nose, her chin, and the clavicle bones on either side of the divot in her throat. She agreed. In less than 3-minutes the damn burst and the tears started to flow, and I hadn’t even stated any affirmations.
EFT is something that a person learns and typically does for themselves. Here is a LINK that will take you to a YouTube video by Gary Craig – Founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques. At the end of the 7-minute video, you’ll be given the website address to download a FREE manual on how to do EFT. It’s an amazing universal healing aid that you simply have to try for yourself.
Ted Howard in New Zealand, invited me to write a guest blog, which I did. My topic is the Top 12 Anti-Cancer Foods. I hope you’ll pop over there for a visit.
