Unlock Emotional Freedom: Transform Your Life with EFT Tapping

I can confidently say that when I first learned about Emotional Freedom Technique a.k.a Tapping or EFT Tapping, my life changed! For me, tapping was the key for letting go. It allowed me to acknowledge my feelings and let them go. It also helped reinforce the mind-body connection and got me out of my head. That said, the most important thing tapping did for me was remind me that I have the option to choose new beliefs at any point in time. If you're unfamiliar with tapping or want a little reminder, read on.



At a glance, tapping is a form of psychological acupressure that involves tapping on specific meridian points on the body while focusing on particular emotions or issues.


Tapping was created by Gary Craig, a Stanford engineering graduate and personal performance coach, in the 1990s and it's based on Thought Field Therapy (TFT) developed by Dr. Roger Callahan, which combined Eastern acupuncture knowledge with modern psychology.


EFT is rooted in the idea that negative emotions are caused by disruptions in the body's energy system, similar to concepts in acupuncture and acupressure. The technique involves tapping on meridian points on the face, hands, and upper body to restore balance to the body’s energy.


EFT is most often used to: reduce stress or anxiety by calming the nervous system, alleviate physical pain by addressing the emotional aspects of the pain, process and release traumatic memories, reduce the intensity of phobias, and support overall wellbeing. This technique is great because you can do it anywhere and it takes very little time. This is a really valuable technique if you are trying to reprogram your subconscious because of its' effects on energy.

 

I bet you're wondering how it works. Don't worry, here are the basic steps so you can try it out on your own.


  1. Identify the Issue: Focus on a specific problem or emotion, such as anxiety, pain, or a traumatic memory.

  2. Assess the Intensity: Rate the intensity of the issue on a scale of 0 to 10.

  3. Set Up Statement: Create a statement that acknowledges the problem and accepts yourself despite it. Usually I would say something like, "Even though I have this anxiety, I deeply and completely accept myself".

  4. Tapping Sequence: Tap on each meridian point while repeating a reminder phrase that focuses on the issue. At this stage, I like to choose one or multiple affirmations that align with my desired state.


Here's where you tap:

- Karate Chop Point: Side of the hand (used for the setup statement).

- Top of the Head: Crown of the head.

- Eyebrow Point: Right above the eyebrow.

- Side of the Eye: Bone on the outside of the eye.

- Under the Eye: Bone under the eye.

- Under the Nose: Area between the nose and upper lip.

- Chin Point: Midway between the lower lip and the chin.

- Collarbone Point: Just below the collarbone.

- Under the Arm: About 4 inches below the armpit.
