Self-image can be defined as the perception of oneself and will include assessment of qualities and personal worth.
Self-image reflects upon the innate belief in ability to achieve a goal, and is also the prisoner which keeps us safely locked within our comfort zones. A partner to confidence, it is self-image which is behind the prompt to take a risk (i.e. to go beyond the comfort zone) or which keeps us in perpetual stagnation regardless of our good intentions and plans.
With this vital piece of information, the link between disruptions to our energy system, the way we feel about ourselves and subsequently our actions becomes more apparent. As previously stated these disruptions may be caused by trauma in any regard, be it emotional, physical, energetic or cognitive. These disruptions are then carried into our psyche and into the way we view ourselves.
In short we build a picture of ourselves which incorporates the trauma as if it were us, adding a negative emotion or non-serving belief which then impacts on our everyday life, influencing decisions, keeping us feeling limited in some way.
EFT can be used to neutralize negative emotions or limiting beliefs. Getting to the cause and permanently dissolving limiting factors allows a more positive, better serving self-image to emerge; improving confidence and allowing you to be who you want to be, go where you want to go and live how you want to live.
Important note: While EFT has produced remarkable clinical results, it must still be considered in the experimental stage and thus practitioners and the public must take complete responsibility for their use of it.
