Our bodies have a profound electrical nature. A good demonstration of the existence of this electricity (or energy) is the electrocardiogram used by hospitals to measure the heart’s electrical activity.
Civilization has known about this energy for millenniums. For example, the Chinese discovered a complex system of energy circuits (called meridians) that run throughout the body. These meridians form the basis of acupuncture. The energy that courses throughout the body is invisible to the eye. You can’t see the energy running through a tv set either but you know it is there by its effects. The sounds and pictures are your ever present evidence that the energy flow exists.
In the same way, EFT gives striking evidence that energy flows within your body because it provides the effects that let you know it’s there. By simply tapping near the end points of energy meridians profound changes in emotional and physical health can occur.
EFT works on the premise that a disruption in the energy system is the cause of all negative emotions/feelings. This means that any thought, trauma, event or experience which disrupted the energy system will result in emotional upset of some sort or another. Therefore EFT aims to address the energy disruption, or inbalance. This results in neutralizing the cause and relieving the associated emotions/feelings/reactions.
Furthermore, EFT uses a ‘basic recipe’ for tapping which means it covers the same points each time. This is useful for individuals learning basic EFT as they can learn and take away a tool that will be useful for current issues. Once learned, the basic tapping sequence can be used daily to lower stress and deal with life events as they arise. It should be noted however that a certified EFT practitioner is often crucial to the process of uncovering and dealing with certain/core issues. Whilst EFT yields good results when done by the lay person, the skills of a practitioner will greatly advance healing benefits.
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.
