So What Is EFT Anyway?

What EFT is and how it works

I just love EFT.  It’s a wonderful technique for personal growth and healing in body, mind, and spirit.  Plus, it’s extremely easy to learn and use and it’s gentle, fast, and very effective. 

I created this video so I could share EFT (short for Emotional Freedom Techniques) with people who may have never heard of EFT or may have heard something about it but don’t really know what it is and how it works.

To summarize what I cover in the video, EFT is a very simple energy technique that involves tapping on nine different acupressure points on your face and body while you think about some issue that is bothering you.  You can focus on letting go of negative beliefs or let go of any kind of emotional or physical discomfort.  It works really well for anxiety, phobias, painful past experiences/traumas, PTSD, anger, sadness, physical issues… practically anything you can think of.

The thing is, it doesn’t take very long to learn EFT and it doesn’t take very long to use it either.  So, it’s worth it to try it on everything and see what happens.  From my experience, EFT helps you let go of emotional, mental, and even physical issues more quickly and effectively and gently than anything else I have ever tried.

How does it work?

By tapping on these specific acupressure points, you are opening up the flow of energy through your body and as a result, you feel yourself experiencing your natural state of unconditional well-being.  By focusing on an issue that is causing you discomfort while you tap on these points, you are programming your energy system to respond to that issue in a healthy, peaceful way.  It may take a few rounds to get there (which won’t take very long anyway), but once you let go of the intensity around a particular issue, you allow your inner wisdom to give you a new perspective on that issue.  In my experience, that means you see the situation from a much more loving, wise, and compassionate perspective for yourself and for anyone else involved.

One of the things I love about EFT is that it really gives you evidence that what lies beneath the outer layer of our negative emotions and limiting beliefs is a core of unconditional well-being and wisdom.  If you sit down and do EFT for 20 minutes on an issue that’s really bothering you, you will be amazed at how much better you feel and you will have new wonderful insights that will help you understand and resolve whatever problems you may be having.

It’s just so powerful.  But it’s very gentle as well.  And it works so quickly, too.

Try it yourself

The best way to discover what EFT really is, is try it for yourself.  In my next video, I’ll walk you through the process of learning how to do EFT yourself.  You can follow along with me as you tap on an issue that’s bothering you.  And as you do, you really will see for yourself how powerful EFT is.
