Use the Emotional Freedom Technique to fight your fears by "Tapping" into your body's natural healing energy.
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), or ‘tapping,’ is a powerful energy therapy that can help you help yourself by tapping into your body’s natural healing energy. EFT incorporates the principles behind acupuncture and mind-body connection therapies to confront those lurking triggers or fears that cause limiting beliefs, slowing you down, and often completely stopping you from achieving your goals.
EFT is essentially “psychological acupressure.” That is a fancy way of saying it uses a gentle tapping technique instead of needles to stimulate traditional Chinese acupuncture points.
EFT helps with resolving chronic pain, anxiety, and phobias, giving you relief and release from the boogeymen of haunting memories. It will allow you to once again experience improved health, resilience and positive energy.
I know first-hand how effective the Emotional Freedom Technique is. For over 30 years, I have had a fear of sitting in the middle of a row. Whether it’s the movies, the symphony, a lecture or a rock concert – I always had to plan ahead and snag my special seat on the aisle. (The reason behind this is not really that important; just know that it was a real anxiety-producer for me.)
After only one session of EFT, I found that though I was still conscious of my fear, it didn’t feel as intense as before. Tentatively, I went to a movie and sat four seats in. I looked around (habit) and then concentrated on the film and had a great evening. I could hardly believe it! I kept testing myself after that – at the symphony, in a lecture; I was able to handle the seating and enjoy the event without worry!
With that success, I knew I needed to understand more about this energy technique, so I decided to become certified in Levels 1 and 2 of EFT.
After the training, I was convinced what a vital and important tool EFT is for emotional health. Using tapping to connect to your body’s energy meridians while focusing on the fear, you can activate your own natural healing system.
This non-invasive technique will be one of the most important tools in your Empowerment Toolbox.
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU COULD TAME YOUR FEARS AND DOUBTS WITH NO POTIONS OR CHEMICALS TO INGEST, NO EQUIPMENT TO PURCHASE, AND NO NEEDLES? YOU CAN!
I can teach you EFT tapping in as little as one session and then you can take it with you wherever you go, diffusing stress and anxiety and allowing you to reach your goals. (Tapping can be even more powerful with someone else tapping along with you but solo tapping is also extremely effective.)
I’ve used EFT on teenagers faced with the College Board exams and SATs. It’s helped executives who are reluctant to make presentations; and I have found that EFT can even reduce anxiety from emotional confrontations.
