What is EFT?
By John Blosse
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) was created by Gary Craig in the 1990’s. It allows you to access negative emotions by tapping on energy points as you focus on your problem. The tapping sends a signal to the brain that it’s ok to let the issue go and brings the body’s energy system back into balance.
“The cause of all
negative emotions is a
disruption in the
body’s energy system.”
- Gary Craig (The EFT Discovery Statement)
Certain events or life situations cause disruptions in our body’s energy system. This leads to physical pain, disease or mental illness. We feel negative emotions such as anger, sadness, fear or guilt – these negative emotions take us straight to the core of issue. When we work with negative emotions we can release the issue. Once the emotional charge is gone and we are able to talk about the issue as if it happened to someone else, the issue won't bother us anymore.
EFT is a complete form of therapy...
EFT has its roots in kinesiology and incorporates acupressure points, NLP modalities and energy therapy and has evolved into a complete therapy in its own right. It is backed by much scientific research evidence and EFT therapists are reporting a high success rate. This is because when we use the EFT method we are in tune with the laws of the universe.
EFT allows us to tap into the subconscious mind...
Children download things so quickly and they learn so fast. If you observe a child you will notice that they experience life events at a deeper level than the adults around them. In early childhood we are first in the Delta brainwave state, then in the Theta brainwave state. These states are extremely suggestive and are used in hypnotherapy; in fact, according to cell biologist Bruce Lipton, until the age of six years old, we download life events and learned behaviour patterns straight into our subconscious minds.
In over 90% of my clients, the issue that we are working on has its roots in childhood and usually before the age of six. By the time they are adult, the original life event that caused the energy disruption has snowballed into a much bigger problem in their lives. EFT allows us to peel away the emotional layers until the core issue reveals itself and ceases to be a problem.
