EFT – How Does it Work?

Meridian Tapping Explained.

How does EFT work to produce remarkable results from just saying a few words and tapping on meridian points? It seems too easy.

It might be hard to believe, but the ideas behind EFT have existed for thousands of years. EFT is based on the subtle energy system of acupuncture that was discovered by the Chinese about 5,000 years ago.

More recently, Albert Einstein told us that everything is composed of energy. Currently, Quantum Theory supports these discoveries.

The Chinese application of the subtle energy system took the forms of acupuncture and the internal martial arts. EFT is a new Western application.

How does EFT work with subtle energy?

Look around and observe how life grows and is nourished by energy. Energy sustains all life, from plants to humans to the creation of stars. Life-giving energy comes in many forms, not just those considered “essential” to life; such as sunlight, water and food. There is also good music, good feelings, physical touch, words of kindness, good company, an uplifting thought, a smile from a stranger–to name a few.

All forms of positive energy energize us. This energy is transported throughout our body via acupuncture meridians. Sometimes this energy can be disrupted, and we experience its effects: unease, discomfort and pain. With physical tapping at specific points along our energy meridians, EFT “taps” into our energy system to balance it and keep it running smoothly.

How does EFT work at the physical level?

Gary Craig, Founder of EFT, answers the question, “How does EFT work?” by instructing us to think of our bodies as electric. He states in The EFT Discovery Statement:

“The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”

The acupuncture meridians act like energy circuits conducting currents of energy. If these circuits are disrupted, emotional and physical discomfort is experienced.

Think of energy disruption like a TV with a short in a wire. The effect of this short is a ZZZZT (as described by Gary Craig) on the image seen on TV. The impaired flow of electricity causes the problems with the TV image.

When the flow of energy is disrupted in people, some parts of the body experience a shortage of energy and others too much.

The physical EFT tapping with the tips of the fingers on acupuncture points on the face and body clears this ZZZZT. In this way the energy traveling through these channels is balanced and flows freely throughout the body.

How does EFT work with respect to the tapping points?.

These points correspond to acupuncture points on our major meridians. Our finger tips contain points where the three main energy channels (Central, Right Main, and Left Main Channels) meet. According to Taoist Chi Gung Theory, these three main channels come into existence first while still in the womb. Then they create the other acupuncture meridians.

The Central and Right Main Channels flow through the right EFT “sore spot” (a point about 3 inches to either side of the thymus gland, where lymphatic congestion occurs) and the right hand karate chop point. These two points can be used interchangeably during the “Set-up” part of EFT. The Central and Left Main Channels flow through the left EFT “sore spot” and the left hand karate chop point.

How does EFT work at the emotional level?

Our energy meridians form the transportation system that carries energy, or information to its destination. They are information highways.

Every day we absorb huge amounts of information. Everywhere we go we collect impressions of our environment, of other people or of our experiences, just to name a few. We are even subconsciously receiving information from our body’s inner workings such as temperature, sugar balance and PH levels.

How does EFT work to help us process so much information?

EFT focuses our attention inward bringing up information associated with what we are tapping on that was hidden from our conscious awareness. Negative feelings provide the link to this information and alert us to energy disruptions.

By tapping to release negative emotions, we clear energy blocks before they have time to affect the corresponding physical areas of our bodies and express disease.

Because dramatic events in our life, like trauma, are loaded with strong negative emotions, it is often difficult to process and release them all. We may feel overwhelmed and unable to handle them.

As a result, many of us developed unhealthy ways to cope with strong emotions. We often stuff them, pretend they are not there or avoid them by keeping ourselves distracted. By not acknowledging them we close the passage out for them to release.

In this manner, we keep short circuiting our energy meridians each time these emotions begin to surface as the memory of the trauma gets triggered into awareness.

These emotions will keep trying to find a way out because this is how our energy system clears the ZZZZT and fixes itself.

How does EFT work to clear traumas and disruptions in our meridians and acupuncture points?

When we experience an overwhelming situation, an intense surge of energy in the form of thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations surges through us. The energy meridians and acupuncture points do their best to transport and hold the excess energy generated.

Sometimes, this creates an overload to our energy system and cause it to “crash” the way a power surge or too much information can cause a computer to crash. EFT comes in to help release the burden of this excess charge trapped in the memory of the trauma with the tapping techniques.

During the EFT tapping, emotions are given attention and acknowledgement and gradually released, until the excess energy is cleared helping to restore balance in our energy system.

Another way to understand energy disruption or blockages is to think of a river with many tributaries. If there is pollution or small avalanches that wash debris into the water, the current can continue to flow and carry it away. But if it continually gets washed in there, or if there is a massive avalanche (trauma)–the current won’t be able to keep up.

Over time stagnation can occur or debris can settle, blocking the water flow. Water backs up in some areas (excess energy) and some areas don’t get water at all (energy deficiency). This is equivalent to continual stress accumulating over time or dramatic unresolved emotional trauma hitting us.

If these blockages are strong enough, they may even reverse our energy, so that we feel like we are working against ourselves.

How does EFT work in unblocking emotions?

The “set-up” statement in the Emotional Freedom Techniques allows the emotion to simply be, without resistance or rejection of our self. This acceptance, along with the “tuning in” that occurs when giving the problem an intensity rating, brings the emotion into the present moment.

Under these conditions, the emotion can be safely felt and expressed because we are making the distinction that though the emotion/problem may not be acceptable, we are.

By focusing on the problem/emotion the underlying energy disruption is activated. In this way, the timing of the tapping coincides with the energy disruption and can help push the energy through, to restore the flow of energy.

During the tapping we are able to observe the tapping target as it diminishes and/or changes during the process. This brings clarity in recognizing our self as the observer and not under the control of the emotion. This makes it easier to let go of the emotion.

How does EFT work with painful traumas?

Emotions are packed with energy. It is easy to feel their “charge” (if we allow it), whether it be positive or negative. With EFT it is not necessary to submerge one’s self in these strong currents of unreleased pain. It is not recommended we jump into the deepest part of the pain to release the charge. The intensity of the charge surrounding the issue is first diminished before continuing step by step with the other emotions and going deeper.

The approach is like peeling an onion. We start with what is on the outside and go layer by layer. Please note, sometime we are unexpectedly taken into the center of a deep trauma or emotion. These new memories or emotions may take us by surprise, having forgotten about them or believed they were already resolved. This process can happen so quickly we are not able to “sneak up on it” gradually. In this case, continuous, quick tapping through all points is done until the emotional energy is released.

How to Manifest Anything: 6 Steps

 

Bruce Lee Meditating

 

 

1. Accept and acknowledge that your thoughts are forms of energy that contain the seeds of your future experience.

2.Learn to still your mind. Meditation is both easy and difficult. Once you master the meditative state, begin to introduce a specific word like ‘happiness’ or an image (sort of like your personal logo) in which you have invested some meaning (like a check with a specific amount on it).

3.Learn to still your mind. Meditation is both easy and difficult. Once you master the meditative state, begin to introduce a specific word like ‘happiness’ or an image (sort of like your personal logo) in which you have invested some meaning (like a check with a specific amount on it).

4.Make way for new experiences by consciously changing old habits and routines. Take a new route to work. Get up earlier. Have something different for breakfast. Give up some things.

5.Create rituals to symbolize your expected outcome. If you are manifesting a new car, buy something small that symbolizes it.

6.Enlist the support of all supportive forces: trusted friends, favorite places, inspiring music, or even your own created talismans.

TIPS: If you want to manifest a fortune, always carry around 100 dollars or more in your wallet. Wherever you go, look at the stores around you, and tell yourself “If I wanted to, I could go in there right now and buy that!” but don’t actually buy it. Actually spending 100 dollars is a lot less satisfying compared to spending 100 dollars 10, 20, 30 times mentally. This will attract a lot of money towards you if you can imagine what it’d be like.

warnings:

  • Remembering, manifesting is really about being positive which is great. Even if you don’t believe it, give being positive and manifesting a good long try. At the very least it will get you thinking more positively. The only thing you have to lose is negative thinking. This works for so many, it is incredible.
  • Resist the temptation to let events which seem inconsistent with the new experience you are creating distract you.
  • Beware of learned helplessness and those who exploit it. Regardless of whether you consult a physical teacher; books, videos, a CD, cassettes or a DVD, they all end up simply telling you to look back into your own heart and mind for the answers and results you seek.
  • Don’t get trapped into the idea that you have to pay a fortune to something to have someone else teach you how to do this. You can research it for free at the library and on line.(sited with thanks from http://www.wikihow.com/Manifest-Anything)

12 Ways The Law of Attraction Can Improve Your Life

loa4

 

1. You attract good or bad experiences based on your thoughts.

“The one who speaks most about illness has illness. The one who speaks about prosperity has prosperity,” Esther and Jerry Hicks write. “You attract all of it.” By focusing on something, you make it happen.

2. Thinking about something means you invite it in, even if you don’t want it.

“When you think a little thought of something that you want, through the Law of Attraction, that thought grows larger and larger, and more and more powerful,” according to the book. So keep your thoughts positive.  The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham.

3.The more you focus on something, the more powerful it becomes.

This allows you to create your own reality by “attracting” the experiences you want to have. You probably brought bad things upon yourself by worrying about them, according to the laws described in the book. The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham.

4.It’s better to trust your emotions than over-think a decision.

In other words: Listen to your intuition. Instead of overthinking your choices, let your emotions guide you toward what is right and what is wrong. This will result in a more satisfying life.

5.You can make good things happen more quickly by thinking about them more..You can make good things happen more quickly by thinking about them more..

“Want” and “desire” consist of wanting “to focus attention, or give thought toward a subject, while at the same time experiencing positive emotion. When you give your attention to a subject and you feel only positive emotion about it as you do so, it will come very quickly into your experience,” the Hicks write.”Want” and “desire” consist of wanting “to focus attention, or give thought toward a subject, while at the same time experiencing positive emotion. When you give your attention to a subject and you feel only positive emotion about it as you do so, it will come very quickly into your experience,” the Hicks write. The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham.

6.To make a change, you’ve got to see things as you hope them to be, not as they are.

“In order to effect true positive change in your experience, you must disregard how things are — as well as how others are seeing you — and give more of your attention to the way you prefer things to be,” Abraham Hicks.

7.You can increase your magnetic power by devoting time to “powerful thinking.” each day.

Spend 15 minutes every day thinking hard about your goals, dreams and what you want from life. The Hicks say this increases your chances for success.

8.Success isn’t a finite resource; everyone can have it.

Others being successful doesn’t limit your success. And by attracting abundance to yourself, you are not limiting another.

9.Don’t allow yourself to wallow in disappointment.

Being disappointed only attracts more stuff to be upset about and is only a sign that you’re not getting what you want in life. So think about how to get what you want instead of what you don’t have.

10.Avoid TV shows that deal with negative experiences like crime or illness.

Letting this stuff in makes you think about it more and increases the odds it could happen to you. “Your attention to anything is drawing it closer to you,” Abraham Hicks.

11.Know that your relationships with people are bad because you made them that way.

Giving your attention to the negative can wreak havoc on personal relationships. This mentality can help free us from bad relationships with relatives or a spouse. “Nothing can come into your experience without your personal attraction to it,” Abraham Hicks.

12.Don’t worry about what you’re dreaming; instead use your dreams as a guide.

Dreams might provide some insight into the psyche, but you’re not in the process of “creating” while you’re asleep, Abraham Hicks.
