Emotional Freedom Technique – EFT
The healing power of EFT can be a powerful tool for navigating a way through life’s challenges. The technique can help overcome self defeating emotional patterns of thought and behaviour. It has the advantage of being non invasive, highly specific and has no side effects.
It is thought that molecules of emotion shape mood and thought, which can initiate a series of cascading chemical and cellular events. EFT practices deliberately shift the molecules of emotion. Using kindness, compassion and curiosity the healing is to resolve emotional, mental and physical upsets.
- It can help overcome unwanted emotions such as fear, guilt, shame, jealousy and
- Help change unwanted habits and behaviours.
- Enhance your ability to love, succeed and enjoy life.
The material world is patterned on energetic forms. Energy is the blueprint , the infrastructure – the invisible foundation for health in the body. Medical intuitives have been able to recognize and prevent brewing illness by restoring energy flow.
EFT can also be described as psychological acupuncture. ‘Points’ can be called “windows” into the body’s energy system. The understanding is that every thought and emotion causes a reaction in a specific area in the brain. If your brain recognizes a similarity between a distressing situation from your past, and what you are seeing hearing in the moment – even though there is no current threat or danger- the distress signals that you experienced in the earlier situation can be activated, and the emotional response overwhelming.
The wonderful thing about EFT is that we can focus on an upsetting thought with intention, and use tapping on the body to transform the negative feeling into a neutral one. The reaction or emotion around the thought then no longer controls us.
It can also be a powerful tool for personal development.
MRI studies have found that EFT has changed brain activity – it deactivated areas of the brain involved in the experience of pain and fear. So the alarm response in the body to flight, fight and freeze can be relieved after energy interventions.
