Emotional Freedom Technique Explained

Feb 01, 2017 07:24PM

People will often give up on a goal they truly desire, such as new year’s resolution to lose weight, and energy workers believe the cause is an imbalance in the body’s energy system. This may be due to negative programs that have been running in the background for years: for example, “You’ve always been fat, You’ve never succeeded at anything, why is this different?” Imbalances have also been linked to chronic pain that has no diagnosed cause. Perhaps a person that is “a pain in the neck” may just be causing the neck pain.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) posits that mind/brain likes the familiar; therefore, it’s simple to understand why people revert to old habits. Energy work practitioners help clients remove imbalances and enable them to more readily achieve their goals.

Clearing clutter, clearing food addictions, clearing the sting and shame of abuse, clearing the guilt of bad decisions, clearing beliefs preventing moving forward, clearing personally imposed blocks preventing better scores in the classroom or in sports and clearing emotional issues causing physical pain are diverse issues that can be cleared using drug-free, painless EFT.

Emotional Freedom TechniqueEFT is similar to acupuncture, but without the needles. Along with the setup and tapping phases, a practitioner taps on different energy points in the upper body. EFT is claimed to allow the flow of energy to be restored and the stress of the event relieved.

According to Stanford-trained engineer and EFT developer Gary Craig, emotional and some physical issues are often caused by a shock to the body’s energy system or by unsupportable beliefs that were instilled when we were very young. The shocks are not always something clients consciously recognize, but may be as harmless as negative comments.

Our bodies unconsciously house many beliefs that may be someone else’s beliefs passed on to us. Some people admire their parents so much that they think making more money than them might cause problems. Using EFT, a practitioner can lead a client to the root cause of anger, guilt and depression and help the client eliminate the emotional stress they cause.
