Meditation Monday: Tapping-The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

We all have stress and fear. It’s part of the human experience. Some people handle it well or, if you’re like me, you can be a basket case sometimes. Everyone tells you to just “let it go” or “stop worrying”. Well, it’s easier said then done. What if I told you, there was a technique that can calm your anxieties and help you to “let it go” in a matter minutes? Enter EFT TAPPING

What is Tapping? Tapping, is also known as the EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE or EFT. At a basic level, it combines modern day psychology and ancient Chinese medicine. During the EFT tapping technique, you focus on a negative aspect of your life, say anxiety about losing weight, and tap on 10 different meridian points on your body, while speaking a phrase related to your anxiety, to help alleviate stress.

These meridian points are based on 100 meridian points throughout the body, used in Chinese acupuncture and acupressure. These are the same energy points, which have been used for over 5000 years to heal physical and emotional disease.

Here is a quote from the website http://www.thetappingsolution.com/:

” Like acupuncture and acupressure, Tapping is a set of techniques which utilize the body’s energy meridian points. You can stimulate these meridian points by tapping on them with your fingertips – literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power. … Tapping provides relief from chronic pain, emotional problems, disorders, addictions, phobias, post traumatic stress disorder, and physical diseases.”

How does this work? (AND IT DOES WORK!!) When we have pain, either physical or emotional, it disrupts the energy meridians (AKA: Ch’i) in our body (remember, the body is made up of energy, just like everything else in the universe.) By maintaining focus on a specific negative issue, (for example, our anxiety about weight), and tapping on 10 specific energy meridians, you return the body’s energy meridians back a balanced state.

Here is a basic HOW TO video, which shows the 10 points and the basic “formula”

Here is a short, guided EFT Tapping Meditation to get you started.

 I bet you’ve already been tapping while you read. 🙂 If not, go on, give it a try? I know you’re dying to find out if this works. What have you got to lose?
