The ABCs, or rather EFTs, of Healing

It’s been almost two years since I posted Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) – A Universal Healing Aid. That makes today the ideal time to revisit the topic as my blogging friend Sonal Pandey, author of Tap Easy—an EFT-oriented blog—is hosting a giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a free DVD, The Tapping Solution.

For those of you who may not know, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is an energy-based therapy that’s provided thousands of people with relief from pain, diseases, and emotional baggage. Simply stated, it’s an emotional version of acupuncture—except needles aren’t necessary.

Instead, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips. The process is easy to memorize and it’s portable so you can do it anytime, anywhere.

I encourage you to head over to the Tap Easy Giveaway Page and sign up for your chance to win this DVD that explores the many facets of EFT and teaches you about releasing pain, about the body-mind connection (how our emotions affect our body), how to clear limiting beliefs, and much more!

Coincidentally, the 2012 Tapping World Summit—a free online event on EFT and meridian tapping—is May 7−16.

Have you ever done EFT before?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) – A Universal Healing Aid

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 dam 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.
