EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, it is also called Meridian Tapping. It is an amazingly simple but powerful technique where you can change how you feel about something in a matter of minutes. You can use it on tiredness, feeling overwhelmed, depression, sadness - literally anything you are feeling. You can also use it on physical symptoms of pain and illness.
It is so empowering to be able to change how you feel in a matter of minutes, and these changes are changes for good. If you think about a past event and there is kind of a "sting" to it, there is stuck energy around it. With EFT, you can think of the same event and still acknowledge what happened, without it getting to you. It is amazingly liberating.
Another wonderful aspect that I love about EFT is that it is gentle. We don't have to wallow in the "problem". We don't even have to say what it is if we don't want to. It can be given a code word i.e. "that thing that happened" or "the phone call" and without the practioner knowing one tiny bit about what happened, the energy can be completely clear from the body's system.
Here is a simple video showing you the tapping points and doing a short round of tapping to decrease stress:
Hello Robin: It's been a week since our tapping session. I'm very happy to tell you that I am off the sugar train. Yea! I did not get the urge to get the am donut at work and I am not eating sugar (white, honey, brown or agave) at all at home. I still have the "tapping donut" in the refrigerator and until this moment, I forgot it was there! So, I think you can call the session a success! Nan, Windsor, CT
P.S. One thing I forgot to mention is that l dropped 2 lbs right away. I don't recall that we tapped about weight, just making better food choices. I'm not overweight, but I feel better about 5 lbs less. I'm 60, post-menopause and weight just doesn't come off that easily. So, dropping 2 lbs in a week is a big deal!
It was actually a remarkable experience. After doing the first round of tapping I kind of felt worse about the whole xxxx thing, but then as soon as we started the second round I could feel a real shift take place. It was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders and I felt just so much more optimistic! When I woke up this morning I couldn't even get my mind to come up with the worried thought. Even when I consciously tried to think about xxxx and my issue with it I couldn't seem to find the thought at all. It's an incredible feeling.You had an amazing way of getting to the root of my issue without making me feel uncomfortable or self-conscious at all. So thank you!Peggy - Wilton, CT

During the EFT session I experienced reduction of stress regarding my mold illness and my impatience during my healing process. I don't feel that same resentment toward my illness or pressure to heal before I get too old. I'm healing and will continue to. I have plenty of time to accomplish my goals. Charles Brandt
I know when you spoke of my body working "so hard" to make me "be enough", I felt energy shoot through my body in all directions. I literally felt as if you "plugged me in!" I could think of those same words for the next 2 days and feel the same reaction in my body, just to a lesser degree.... I haven't been very hungry at all and have eaten very little in the past 2 1/2 days. Rosie T. - Reading, Pa.
I felt a huge release of emotions. I sighed a lot during the session and did not realize what a big release occurred until you asked me to rate the emotion at the end of the session, and it was gone. I feel much less alone and overwhelmed with my circumstances. Sue P. - Sayville, NY
