Decoding Emotional Freedom Technique

Everything is energy! We are all energetic beings made up of electrons, neutrons & protons. This is the basis of all energy healing modalities and the same applies to EFT. Before I talk about my journey and experience with EFT, let’s first understand what EFT is all about.

Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT is also referred to as ‘meridian therapy’ or ‘tapping’ and is based on the same principles as acupuncture but instead of using needles, the meridian points are gently tapped with the fingertips. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. Its effectiveness has been so profound that prestigious institutions such as Stanford, Harvard and many other universities, clinics and hospitals have chosen to use and/or study them. EFT has been used by medical professionals in NHS hospitals in the UK for some years as well as in the US and Australia.

EFT can help with various issues including increased energy levels, insomnia, anxiety, depression, trauma, physical pain, allergies, weight loss, fear and phobias, blockages in career or love, confidence, self-esteem and more.

I discovered EFT a few years ago when I was going through a transformation of sorts. Having had a history of bi-polar disorder and depression, I ended up in a downward spiral that led me on a path of self-discovery. I read up about EFT online and followed videos to work on some of my own issues. One such issue was a sprained ankle, which was bothering me for over a week. I decided to try EFT on it based on what I had read online and started tapping. The pain reduced but didn’t really go away… I then started to think about what was going on at the time when my ankle was sprained and I realised I was trying to put on a brave face but was actually quite upset about a situation with someone. So I started tapping on those issues and feelings and miraculously my ankle healed completely in just 20 minutes! I was hooked… I tried EFT on a lot of my issues, stuff I had held on from childhood and I saw how my life began to change. My relationship with myself, and my family members got better and at this point, I decided to take it one step further and get certified as an EFT practitioner.

As an EFT practitioner I have worked with clients who have suffered from money issues for years, clients with Post-traumatic stress disorders or those suffering from panic attacks, anxiety, love issues, self-worth, fear and so on. And every single time EFT has impressed me. I have gotten clients telling me that after just one session of EFT they were now able to earn more money and even save money. I have seen clients with PTSD make great strides in just 2 sessions… something that months of traditional therapy couldn’t do. EFT can work in schools and colleges and even in the workplace to reduce stress, anxiety and frustration faced in everyday life.

EFT came into my life as a gift and it totally changed my worldview. With the help of this tool, we no longer need to be held hostage by our past or our limiting beliefs. As they say, the world is our oyster and anything is possible.
