What is EFT?
EFT stands for ‘emotional freedom techniques’ and you may have heard it referred to as tapping. It is a fast and easily accessible way to clear negative thoughts, beliefs and habits out of your life and to embed new and positive ones into their place.
To do EFT/ tapping you combine talking about your issue to tune into how it feels, with tapping on a series of points on the body (the places where the energy flows the strongest in the body, like in acupressure).
The reason this combination is so powerful is that the tapping accesses the emotional regulation centre in the brain, the amygdala, and has been scientifically proven to reduce cortisol (the bodies stress hormone) which helps to take the emotional charge out of your issue, belief or past traumatic event.
Who is EFT for?
Whilst EFT is suitable for anyone, in my experience and the success I have seen in my clients, EFT has the most powerful transformations in people who are open, honest and willing to try something new to change their lives.
If you feel stuck, or like something is holding you back - EFT is for you.
If you are reliving painful past experiences and trauma - EFT is for you
If you are crippled with fear, anxiety and/or doubt and have no idea how to move past this - EFT is for you.
If you keep finding yourself repeating the same negative behaviours and thought patterns - EFT is for you.
If you are ready to upgrade your life by levelling up your inner world - EFT is for you.
My EFT Journey
I stumbled across EFT (emotional freedom techniques or tapping as it is commonly known) back in 2018 after a particularly painful breakup as I was reading a book called Radical Self Love (by Gala darling)
One of the suggestions in the book was something I had never heard of before called tapping/ EFT and it was described as the ‘fastest way to clear negative thoughts and habits out of your life’. I was instantly intrigued as I knew this was something I had needed most of my life.
I don’t remember what the first ever thing I tapped on was, but I do remember tapping one day on my lunch break from work as I felt overwhelmed with anxiety and panic. I remember feeling like I was going to implode. I had so many thoughts in my head that I didn't know what do do with myself.
I closed my office door, tapped along to an EFT video on Youtube and the relief was instant.
It can be hard to put into words the exact peace and tranquility that came from doing that tapping that day, especially when only minutes before my mind felt so out of control. I was hooked! I felt like I had found the magic key I had been looking for all my life and my love of tapping (EFT) was born.
