what is most striking about EFT is the Sustainability of the results
What is Emotional Freedom Technique Exactly?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping, is a powerful and easy to learn technique based on the same concept as Acupuncture, except instead of using needles, you just tap on certain meridian spots on the body. This process of freeing our emotional blocks is being used by many practitioners and individuals alike to reduce and eliminate many physical and emotional symptoms, as well as improve their well being.
Through EFT Tapping we determine what blocks are in the way of you reaching your goals and we clear those issues from your energy field.
Our negative emotions can get “stuck” in the body and block the energy flow, thus creating many of the symptoms that people experience–from anxiety and fear to headaches and pain. This technique of “tapping” on certain meridians while describing the emotional event, can have profound results. In the twenty years it has been in use, backed up by scientific research, it has been known to improve significantly these and other symptoms:
- Fear and Anxiety
- Emotional Traumas
- Chronic Pain
- Weight Loss
- Quit Smoking
- Build Confidence
- Improve Healthy Lifestyle Habits
- Reduce Negative Self Talk and Limited Beliefs
- Move out of “stuck” feelings
- Performance in sports, speaking, business
Basic Tapping Points Demonstration
Wendy demonstrates how easy this self-help tool is to learn. This is the first level of using tapping and can be quite effective. For deeper issues, Wendy teaches you how to use tapping for specific events.
For example, you may have anxiety about social situations. Just tapping on “Getting rid of this anxiety.” or “I choose to be calm.” will bring relief, but may have limited effect.
However, if through Sourcing we discover the emotional roots and specific events of the anxiety, such as, “I remember the party in 6th grade where everyone teased me and I felt like an outcast.” it will have a much more profound effect.
Wendy's Unique Inspired Life Tapping Process
Wendy believes that you will not be able to express your Authentic Spirit and live an Inspired Life until you can clear out negative emotions and limiting beliefs. Although many tapping programs using generic phrases and scripts to tap on issues can be effective to some extent, they are less likely to create permanent and profound lasting change.
Wendy’s system of sourcing out your specific issues and root causes and then using your own descriptions, wording and beliefs in the process of tapping has much more profound effects. This is because it is important that you resonate with the phrases and they are adjusted to fit your own unique belief level at this moment.
As we work through these specific events, and tap away the emotional impact, you can then remember these experiences that stood in your way without the pain or emotion attached to them . We then develop positive tapping phrases using your own descriptions which begin to create new positive pathways in the brain that are unique to your situation.
EFT Tapping Results
My experience in using EFT with clients over the last 18 years has been nothing but positive. Although EFT tapping, like any healing modality, does not always produce “instant”results, with that said, I always approach each session with an open mind. I have watched people be stunned by the fact that their back pain, or neck pain, or headache just leaves!
Many times it seems to defy our current belief system as to what is possible. Sometimes, these pains stay gone and don’t come back. Sometimes obviously they may come back and require more work. Either way, it is such a simple, non-invasive way to deal with our physical and emotional issues.
I have had people get rid of self-doubt and insecurities and negative self talk that has bothered them a long time. Some of these things require more than one session—some don’t. But my experience is that at the very least, everyone leaves feeling calmer, more peaceful and renewed.
Although it isn’t a magic bullet, I have seen a large number of “instant” results along with many, many personal success stories from people using it over a period of time. Here are a couple of my own client experiences:
Tapping Success Stories
Client with fear of leaving her house:
About 10 years ago, a client we will call Claire came to me as a referral from her sister who was my client also. She suffered from agoraphobia, which caused her to get very anxious when she left her house. She had a fear of not only unfamiliar environments, but even going to her sister’s house.
We worked together for three sessions over a couple months doing EFT along with some coaching, and she was able to manage her anxiety and reduce her panic attacks until she actually became able to go places without fear. I recently re-connected with her sister to do some coaching again, and I asked how Claire was doing now. She said she is able to go places and remain calm. If she does feel any anxiety begin to rise up, she taps it away and is able to manage it.
Client with anxiety whenever she smelled cigar smoke:
I had another client several years ago we will call Marie who always had a panic attack whenever she would even walk by someone on the street smoking a cigar. She knew it was related to her traumatic experiences as a child where she was the victim of child abuse and her perpetrator was a cigar smoker. Although she had been through therapy and had healed much of her trauma, the cigar smoke association continued to stick.
After several sessions of EFT, she was feeling confident that she had eliminated this problem. She happened to take her car in for some repair work and the person who worked on it happened to be smoking a cigar.
She was amazed how she had no reaction—no shortness of breath, no feelings of panic that she had previously experienced. Marie has also recently re-hired me to do some business coaching, and I asked her about the cigar smoke. She said, nope not an issue anymore at all.
