EFT // Tapping // Emotional Freedom Technique

Introduction to EFT// Emotional Freedom Technique // Tapping

Some of you who do a lot of mindset work may have heard of thins thing called EFT or Tapping and wondered what the heck people are talking about. Tapping is based on the same meridians that are used in acupuncture -- its a psychological acupressure technique that can be used to optimize your emotional health -- your emotional health is incredibly important as it often determines the things we do and how we act on a regular basis.

EFT is incredible easy to learn and do and can be practiced on your own without any additional tools and resources.

The way of doing EFT is to think about whatever the issue is, accept yourself -- even with your shortcoming, and then remove the charge through tapping on the acupressure points. All the while you're repeating an affirmation. This combination of activities then allows you to feel some emotional relief as the energy around whatever the issue is dissipates.

It sounds more complicated than it is so I'm going to show you an example. The only thing that even needs to be learned are the points because you can make up your own scripts for tapping for any issues.

If I'm feeling anxiety about something I'm trying to finish before a deadline my script would be something like this, "even though, I'm anxious about this deadline, I love and accept myself completely and fully." I then repeat it. Then I begin tapping on the points thinking about the way I feel.
