Emotional freedom technique sample session Reclaiming your power
The emotional Freedom Technique or often referred to as tapping is based on Chinese medicine. For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has taught that there is a flow of energy along pathways through your body called meridians. When this energy is flowing correctly, we experience our natural state of health and wellbeing. When this energy is stuck or disturbed in some way, we experience emotional discomfort, Such as fear, physical Illness, sometimes disease. When you stimulate these meridian points, it can balance them out. With acupuncture, they stimulate the meridian points with needles with tapping we use our fingers. There is also research showing that it greatly reduces levels of cortisol/ Cortisol is the stress hormone that gets released from the brain when we are in a place of fear it is a good thing to clear that out. All kinds of uncomfortable things can happen within the body when cortisol is released into the body and is not dealt with. Tapping helps clear it out so we can feel good again.
So to sum it up EFT is a method in which you tap on specific points on your body while talking about an issue of choice. You may say it is a way of creating endorphins or pleasure chemicals in your body’s energy system.
Refer to the picture for tapping points.
When you tap you create a state of wellbeing in your body and mind and your issues are most often reduced or completely go away.
So first let us rate on a scale of 1 to 10 how you feel about this issue of reclaiming your power?
10 being the most intense.
As we do a little sample here you may feel silly at first. Most people do Just hang in there and keep on tapping it will become more comfortable the more you do it.
Also if it brings up emotions let them flow and release energy. If tears come let them flow let that energy release from your body. Stagnant energies within our bodies create sickness, pain, as well as other yucky stuff we need to release.
I also must disclose to you I am not a licensed therapist to treat. If or when other things come up for you, you take full responsibility for your own wellbeing if you choose to tap. I will not know that you need help. Please seek any professional help you may need.
