Gone are the days when doctors visits were mandatory for pain experienced… this is now the understanding my children have in my home.
“The more willing you are to surrender to the energy within you, the more power can flow through you.“Shakti Gawain
The first time EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) crossed my path, I was in the midst of my marriage breakdown, nothing made sense especially the lady I sat facing, candles burning sweet smelling vanilla in the background and a coffee table [unfortunately without presence of a cup of coffee] with a miserable box of tissues on. My only focus at that stage was the pounding of my heart in my temples as tears streamed down my face thinking – WHY ME? Here she was instructing me to karate chop my hand, tap on my temple and everywhere else which made less sense, en-canting scripts along the way… SADLY, she never explained what it was I was actually doing, never explained the power within it or what the scientific theory behind it was. Would my marriage have succeeded if she had, probably not, but that is just it!
EFT is not some voodoo spell, some magical entity thought up by some hooded bloke to drive you to a better greater experience of life or save you from misery, no, it is an alternative treatment to take on emotional stresses (which dare I add may kill you in any event if you don’t find treatment for it), physical ailments, phobias, addictions, disorders but to name a few. Based on the energy meridians in you body, EFT or tapping, focuses in on acupressure points (like acupuncture – just a touch less intimidating than sticking needles in your body, and I NEVER look as calm as those they use as the examples when facing needles!) and creates new balances and removes blockages in your body.
There are amazing programs that not only allow you and your family to help themselves, but for you to become the expert. We are fully capable of self healing and everybody knows the benefit of functioning optimally in life, some people with a somewhat open mind, have found a way to take on pain and emotions, burdens and addictions, fat and lack of energy in a natural non obtrusive manner.
“EFT means “Emotional Freedom Techniques” and is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.http://eftuniverse.ontraport.com/t?orid=175213&opid=16
Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing. “
And now let’s dance…
This is a technique that is now standard in my healing cupboard, whether dealing with anxiety, weight loss, eating disorders, children, relationships and pain to name but a few, this is my go to. Not for the sake that it will ‘magically cure’ or force the body, mind, spirit into submission, no, rather that it allows the perfection of energy flow in your perfectly created body to flow as it should again. Read that quote by Gawain again, feeling stuck? Allow that energy to flow, to power up again, and let’s dance!
