EFT: Emotional Freedom Technique

Or: Tapping

Emotional Freedom Technique: A psychological acupressure technique that is commonly used to “Tap” on energy meridians on the body, in order to treat/lessen emotional and physical problems. It can be used for a variety of things, such as: removing/neutralizing negative emotions, reducing pain, implementing positive goals, and whatever else there is that you want to resolve, treat, or implement/enforce.

In the beginning, when I was just getting my feet and getting the hang of this, I would use a lot of the videos that Brad Yates and Margaret Lynch have produced/posted to get my daily dose of Tapping. I highly recommend checking out both of them, because there is a wealth of knowledge – and emotional and physical relief – available on their channels that they share with the public. When I was ready, I personalized some of the “scripts” – the things you say as you tap on the acupressure points – to better suit my needs. (Specific problems or goals I wanted to work on, for example.)

Here is Margaret Lynch explaining Tapping (or EFT) for those who want a more professional/thorough explanation:

I highly recommend EFT/Tapping, because it truly helps resolve and address some deep underlying issues (memories, thoughts, concerns, etc.) that you might have; it brings them to surface, addresses them, you forgive/decide to let go of it and no longer have it clutter your mind in a negative way. Or, if you want to make a positive change and have the message be cemented, you tap on the points until it “sticks” and any blocks in the way of you attaining that positive thing/goal is cleared away for you.

If any of this sounds familiar, it’s because it is. It is like a kin of Ho’oponopono, in a way. Ho’oponopono is broken down into: I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, and thank you. One must face and address any ill-feelings and memories so that the good things can stay, and get recorded in the subconscious, and then bring forth those positive changes into realization.

That’s the thing that holds people back. Using some of these techniques helps you gain as clean of a slate as you ever will, because your mind becomes silenced and no longer shouts the opposite of the wonderful things you are thinking/wishing for – if there is no negative emotion attached to these memories, then they hold no power of you, dear reader.

I digressed a little, but yes! I love EFT and use it fairly often.

Here is Brad Yates combining EFT/Tapping with Ho’oponopono:

I have not had any strange or odd experiences using these techniques, but in the spirit/interest of full disclosure, I found a website – while I was researching to get more in-depth info – that suggests that it is better writing your own personalized scripts and Tapping away on the points.

I kind of think that the article might be a bit self-serving and sensationalistic, but I want you guys to check it out anyway. I, personally, haven’t had any strange problems when I’ve used Margaret’s and Brad’s videos. But once I’d gained a deeper knowledge of it, I did personalize the scripts and found that to be much more effective. But, yes… please do take your entire health into consideration – take responsibility for your health – because, as I have said, I am not a doctor. I am merely sharing helpful information, tips, and tricks.

Anyway, let me know how it goes! I hope this information helps, and I wish all of you infinite love and happiness.

Love as always,
