If you haven’t heard of EFT Meridian Tapping, you probably will innovation other areas besides just this video very soon because it’s becoming more and more prominent in clinical medicine in helping with all kinds of different chronic symptoms. I’m going to bring you through a tapping series right here and show you how to do it and also invite you to my favorite annual tapping summit, which I’ll include the link right here. This is where I learned so much about tapping. It did so much for me personally and also in my practice. I’m going to assist you here with how you use tapping.
You’re going to start on the karate chop point. This is just a new way of giving information to your nervous system. Even just gentle tapping, you could do one hand or the other, or you could tap them both together. It’s giving information to your nervous system that calms things down. If you’re triggered, if you’re in fear, if you’re in fight or flight, all of these ignite the chemicals, the hormones in your body that are associated with overweight, with anxiety, with autoimmune illness and with all kinds of chronic diseases. Even things like cancer, heart disease, diabetes. It’s allowing your chemistry to come down into a more balanced space. So, you are just gently tapping on these points.
I’ll walk you through the other points. They are the inner eyebrow point, just if your stressed, if your anxious, if you’ve had it, someone just said something to you. You’re like “Oh my gosh,” and just neutralizing that. Giving your body what it needs, allowing the nervous system to calm down. Then, just gently tapping on your outer eye point. Breathing in, breathing out. Witnessing everything you’re feeling, coming into a deeper connection with your body and then underneath the eye, right on the bony ridge. Just gently breathing in, breathing out. Being present, noticing what’s coming up.
A lot of times we’re not really in our body. We’re not noticing how we’re feeling in our body. Underneath the nose. Most of the time we’re thinking about what’s going to happen next, what we have to do and what we didn’t do and what happened in the past. We’re not actually living in the present, presentcing what happening in our body. Just using the tapping to do that. Right in the middle of the chin. So, these ones are bilateral, you know, both sides and these ones are in the midline. Right on the chin, just one hand in the midline. You could do both sides at the same time, you could do just one side.
then right underneath the collarbone, that soft space underneath the collarbone, just gently tapping, giving your body information that allows a relaxation, calming down of the fight or flight response. Relaxation of your nervous system. Then underneath the arm, right at the nipple line, but underneath the armpit. Tap, tap, tap. Right on the rib cage. It might seem weird, you might look weird. I don’t really care because if I feel so flared up, it helps so much. It helps me to feel so much better in my body, that I kind of just do it anyway.
Then the last one is right on top of the head. Just inhale through the nose, exhaling through the mouth and letting it go, then just relax. Check in with your body. How are you feeling after you tapped versus before. Now, if you’re just sitting in your car and you just pick one point, it doesn’t matter, you could just do one or two points, but if you do the whole series of points it sort of balances out all the meridian channels in your body to allow harmony throughout.
Now, you’re operating on your nervous system, your energy system, but it does affect all of your organ systems, all parts of your body and very powerfully affects our brain. So, if you’re going for a test or an interview or delivering a talk, some kind of performance, tapping before you go in is awesome because it will get you aligned with your own wellbeing. If you’re having pain or illness or fatigue, and your just fighting and trying to plow through it, tapping to witness, be present to what’s coming up in your body, neutralizes it. Instead of fighting your symptoms, you actually allow things to dissolve and resolve.
I’m going to include a link here so you can register for my really good friend, Nick Ortner’s tapping summit. They do this annual tapping world summit, where they have amazing speakers on tapping, including myself, share some of their own expertise and how to do the tapping, how to go very, very deep. Much deeper to allow energies to release from the body, physically, mentally, emotionally so that you can live in health and wellbeing.
I’m super excited to share this with you because I’ve purchased it a few times in the past. You can actually purchase it or just listen to it for free each day. But, I’ve purchased it and had it in my collection and learned so much from this exact summit in the past, so it’s been a huge benefit and to my practice.
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - is a reasonably brand-new exploration and a fast-evolving treatment within the area of Energy Psychology which is capturing the attention of therapists, researchers, spiritualists and lay individuals.
Frequently referred to as "Mental acupressure", the technique functions by launching blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity as well as pain. These clogs in our power system, in addition to testing us mentally, frequently lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and also a failure to live life harmoniously.
An EFT treatment includes using fingertips rather than needles to tap on the end points of power meridians that are positioned simply underneath the surface of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive and deals with the ethos of making adjustment as simple and also as pain free as possible.
EFT is a common sense strategy that draws its power from Eastern explorations that have been around for over 5,000 years. Actually Albert Einstein also told us back in the 1920's that whatever (including our bodies) is made up of power. These suggestions have actually been mainly ignored by Western Healing Practices and as they are unveiled in our current times, human procedure is reopening itself to the forgotten fact that everything is Power as well as the potential that this supplies us.
In the brief time considering that it's beginning by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has offered hundreds of people with relief from various troubles and problems, often in amazingly quick time and after long and also painful periods of searching for a remedy. The variety of effective therapies have varied from trauma as well as abuse, fears, self undermining behaviour patterns, to deep collection emotional conditions of stress and anxiety and also anxiety, addictions, physical health problem, to name however a few.
EFT is upstaging the broad range of recovery specialists; from the scientists to the fortune-tellers and everybody between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old and brand-new paradigms.
EFT restores awareness and also trust in the all-natural recovery capacities of our mind and body, offering ground-breaking opportunities to attaining physical and emotional wellness in a faster period.
Since the techniques are so basic, they could be utilized efficiently as a self-help tool, which empowers people to proactively add to their own healing as well as development process. This promotes a much faster alleviation process, previously thought difficult by health care experts who supported prolonged (& commonly unpleasant) hours in psychotherapeutic or medical care, frequently with limited results. These techniques do not challenge the medical as well as psychotherapeutic professions, yet instead serve to add to an alternative recovery procedure.
EFT functions to clear such disturbances and eliminate the resulting emotional action or strength to bring back emotional harmony as well as offer relief from physical pain.
This is done by concentrating on the specific issue whilst tapping with fingers on the end factors of power meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering as well as concentrating on source, promotes a "straightening" of the power system thereby getting rid of the "short circuit" to the body's learnt feedback or negative emotion.
It started in 1980, with a psychotherapist by the name of Roger Callahan, and also a client with an extreme fear of water. Mary's anxiety of water managed her life and also maintained her from everyday tasks. She was unable to take her youngsters to the beach and was unable to drive near the sea; she grew scared when it rained, and also could not also endure the sight of water on TV. She had vivid headaches involving water.
Callahan and also Mary had been servicing this issue together for over a year. Finally, Mary worked up the courage to sit within sight of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's home. Also doing this created Mary extreme distress, as well as though she discovered means to cope with the intense concern and emotional pain, she did not overcome her fear. They discussed her problem, as well as ways to overcome it, however without success.
Dr. Callahan had actually just recently been studying conventional Chinese medicines, as well as finding out concerning meridians. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, thinking it might heal her stomach pains.
Mary tapped her cheekbone as routed, and also this little action altered medical history! The action seemed amazing, to both Mary as well as Dr. Callahan. Her belly pains vanished. However much more exceptionally, her fear of water went away, as well! She ran down to the pool and also began spraying herself with water, enjoying her newfound freedom from fear.
Based upon this discovery, Dr. Callahan started a collection of examinations to create and also fine-tune this technique, which he described Idea Area Treatment. Gary Craig educated under Dr. Callahan's tutoring in the 1990's, finding out the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig began to observe some troubles with TFT, aspects that he saw were unneeded difficulties.
TFT required specialists to tap on a specific series of meridians (called a formula) for each various issue. Identifying the issue needed a technique called muscle screening, wherein the professional would measure the relative stamina of a muscle, while the individual explored various ideas or declarations.
Gary Craig observed repeated circumstances where the issue was incorrectly detected or the specialist tapped out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the patient was still helped. Based upon these monitorings, he wrapped up that it did not matter in which order the meridian factors were touched.
Craig established EFT as a streamlined, enhanced variation of the principles behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one standard, basic sequence of indicate tap, no matter what the scenario.
Because of this, thousands of people have actually utilized Tapping for illnesses and to settle emotional troubles. Tapping specialists have actually studied the techniques and also educated to take on extra difficult as well as hard situations, and these committed specialists report more successful applications everyday.
