EFT - Emotional Freedom Tapping

EFT - Emotional Freedom Tapping
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) or "Tapping" is a body/mind self-help method. It combines a gentle touch together with mindful and vocal attention to thoughts and feelings. EFT involves tapping with our fingertips on acupuncture points on the hands, face and body while focusing (temporarily) upon an issue we wish to resolve.
Developed by engineer Gary Craig and inspired largely from the work of Dr Roger Callahan, EFT is easy to learn and flexible enough to be used by anyone. As we explore EFT for ourselves, we become empowered to respond to our own emotional states and help ourselves feel better. With the aid of this simple and natural healing tool, we can discover just how our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions affect our bodies and our lives and how we can more consciously make the changes we desire.
EFT works with the body's subtle energy system a network of energy pathways, called meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Some people are very sceptical of the existence of pathways that previously could not be detected. However, with the development of more sophisticated medical technologies, the existence of the primo vascular system has been established. These documented pathways are accessible via specific locations on the body called acupoints.
EFT has been called a psychological version of acupuncture, as the simple process of tapping certain acupoints while focusing on an emotional upset has the effect of releasing the intense charge of troubling emotions. When we are upset, and uncomfortable emotions like worry, fear, or guilt arise, it feels as if our systems are no longer in a state of peaceful harmony.
We can think of EFT as helping reboot our personal energy system in relation to the issue at hand, similar to the way we reboot a computer, which has gotten stuck or has crashed. EFT can help us reset our personal energy system little by little at a pace that is right for us. Once our system begins "rebalancing" as we tap, we usually start feeling better, more relaxed, peaceful and serene in relation to our specific problem or issue. Our body, mind, and emotions are intricately connected. When we apply EFT to something that is bothering us, we can feel the shift in our thoughts, our feelings, and our bodily responses (i.e. stress or tension).
