How to Do EFT Tapping
EFT Tapping has changed my own life and I’ve seen clients experience transformative breakthroughs using this easy-to-learn technique.
If you’ve never tried tapping before, you’ll find that you can learn how to do it in just a few minutes, and you can be tapping away your own anxiety, stress, and upsetting memories in no time.
Note: Although EFT is one of the most powerful tools I know of for releasing the effects of trauma in a ‘tearless’ and non-invasive way, I definitely recommend working with a trained practitioner should your tapping uncover any highly charged traumatic memories.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a process where you tap on specific meridian points on your face and upper body while simultaneously speaking to yourself about the issue you are working on.
How the heck can this possibly work:
Put very simply: EFT works so well because the tapping sends and electromagnetic signal to one of the oldest parts of your brain—the limbic system—which does not understand verbal messages. At the same time you are allowing the verbal part of your brain the chance to release the emotional charge you are feeling and to reprogram it with more uplifting thoughts and feelings.
Tapping on these points tells your brain to stop releasing fight or flight stress hormones and that ‘everything is okay.’ Scientific studies have shown that the simple act of tapping reduces cortisol and other stress hormones.
