What is EFT and how does it work?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, and is often used interchangeably with it's nickname “Tapping”.
Gary Craig, Founder of EFT, answers the question: "How does EFT work?" by instructing us to think of our bodies as energy. He states in The EFT Discovery Statement: “The cause of all negative emotions and physical pain are disruptions in the body’s energy system.”
The acupuncture Meridians (discovered by the Chinese 5,000 years ago) act like energy circuits conducting currents of energy throughout our bodies. If these circuits are disrupted, emotional and/or physical discomfort is experienced.
EFT uses tapping with fingertips on certain points along the Meridians to clear the disruption, allowing energy to flow freely. This process reduces or eliminates physical pain and negative emotions.
It is incredibly fast and effective, so much so that it’s hard to believe until you have experienced it for yourself!
Step One - Identify a Problem statement
"Even though I have this ___________(the problem), I deeply and completely accept myself."
STEP TWO - GUIDED TAPPING
You will physically “tap” lightly on 9 meridian points on the face and upper body while saying a “reminder phrase”. This helps keep your mind focused on “the problem” while allowing your energy system to return to normal at the same time. This allows your “problem” or “memory” to be neutralized and no longer disturb you or effect your life in negative ways.
