Can Change Your Life

Emotional Freedom TechniqueEmotional Freedom Technique can change your life. More people are taking responsibility for their own well being than ever before. As a result there are self-help modalities available to suit everyone's needs.

The modern energy therapies, which have come to the fore in the last two decades, are favorites because they are simple and very effective.

One of the best energy therapies out there is EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is simple, powerful and versatile. It addresses all types of emotional and physical issues. Since it manipulates the body's energy system, whilst simultaneously using mind focus to address a particular issue it can also be used for general problem solving in business.

How Emotional Freedom Technique heals emotional and physical problems

It is an irrefutable fact that our thinking directly affects our well being. Negative thinking creates low energy levels and positive thinking produces higher energy levels. EFT works on the premise that persistent negative thinking causes a lowering of general energy levels ultimately disrupting the free flow of energy in the body. The disruptions caused to the body's energy system eventually manifest as emotional or physical problems.

EFT uses a form of needle free acupuncture together with mind focus to address any issue. You tap on a small number of meridian points on the body and face, whilst repeating aloud an "affirmation" phrase related to the issue you are addressing. Tapping on the meridian points opens up the energy channels in the body. This enables the energy to start flowing freely again and releases negativity at the same time.

This process works very quickly: One round of tapping, as we call it, takes one minute. Typically you would tap three to five rounds, depending on the severity of your symptoms. Within this short time you will notice a sudden increase of your energy levels. I teach my clients an EFT technique I have developed, combining the EFT modality with breathing techniques. This is a very powerful combination and is particularly useful if you're suffering from anxiety or phobias of any kind.

Use EFT For Anything

The beauty of EFT is its immense versatility. Once you have learned the basics you can use it to release negative emotions and obtain relief from physical symptoms as well as manifest positive changes in your life. EFT is the perfect tool to speed up goal manifesting, like creating more money, improving your relationships or eating healthier, to name but a few examples.

EFT also works brilliantly with children. Children have fewer inhibitions then us grown ups and they love the off beat approach and creativity of EFT. They also often bring a humor to the therapy, which facilitates the healing process. Humor actually is an important part of EFT. I encourage my clients to take a lighthearted approach to the entire process and not to take themselves and their problems too seriously. This approach often works wonders. It defuses old, longstanding issues with laughter in no time at all.

If you are looking to improve your life, please check out EFT and the many ways in which it can help you. EFT really has the potential to enrich your life beyond your wildest dreams.
