Sometimes when we have anxiety and overthink a lot, we start overthinking HOW we’re thinking – overanalyzing our thought patterns, obsessing about whether our thoughts are normal, or if how we’re thinking is right or wrong, etc. Let’s get into this issue!
(sorry for the mic noises and sniffles!)
In this video, I detail the system I use to help my clients heal from anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, obsessive thoughts, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, PTSD, etc. using a combination of Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). Here we’re tackling anxiety and some of its many manifestations.

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - is a reasonably new discovery and a fast-evolving therapy within the area of Energy Psychology which is capturing the attention of healers, researchers, spiritualists and lay individuals.
Usually referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique functions by releasing clogs within the power system which are the resource of emotional strength and pain. These obstructions in our energy system, in enhancement to testing us psychologically, frequently lead to restricting beliefs and also behaviors and an inability to live life sympathetically.
An EFT therapy includes using fingertips instead of needles to touch on completion factors of energy meridians that are positioned just under the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive as well as deals with the ethos of making adjustment as simple and also as discomfort totally free as possible.
EFT is a common sense strategy that attracts its power from Eastern explorations that have been around for over 5,000 years. Albert Einstein likewise informed us back in the 1920's that everything (including our bodies) is composed of energy. These suggestions have actually been largely ignored by Western Healing Practices and also as they are revealed in our existing times, human procedure is resuming itself to the failed to remember truth that every little thing is Energy as well as the capacity that this supplies us.
In the brief time given that it's creation by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has actually provided thousands of individuals with remedy for all manner of problems as well as problems, commonly in startlingly quick time as well as after long and uncomfortable periods of searching for a remedy. The diversity of successful therapies have actually ranged from trauma and also misuse, anxieties, self messing up behavior patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of stress and anxiety as well as anxiety, addictions, physical ailment, to name but a few.
EFT is drawing attention from the wide spectrum of recovery experts; from the scientists to the fortune-tellers and also everyone between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old and also new paradigms.
EFT restores understanding as well as count on the all-natural recovery capacities of our mind and body, providing ground-breaking opportunities to achieving physical and also emotional well-being in a faster period.
Since the techniques are so basic, they can be made use of efficiently as a self-help device, which equips individuals to proactively add to their own recovery and growth process. This assists in a much faster alleviation procedure, previously believed difficult by medical care experts who promoted lengthy (& often unpleasant) hrs in psychotherapeutic or medical care, often with limited results. These techniques do not reject the medical and also psychotherapeutic professions, but instead offer to add to an all natural healing process.
EFT works to remove such disruptions and also get rid of the resulting emotional action or strength to bring back emotional consistency and deal remedy for physical discomfort.
This is done by concentrating on the certain trouble whilst touching with fingers on completion points of power meridians. The mix of sending out kinetic energy to our power system, whilst uncovering and concentrating on root causes, helps with a "correcting" of the energy system thus getting rid of the "short circuit" to the body's discovered response or unfavorable emotion.
It began in 1980, with a psychotherapist by the name of Roger Callahan, and also a client with a severe fear of water. Mary's worry of water managed her life and also kept her from everyday activities. She was incapable to take her children to the coastline as well as was incapable to drive near the ocean; she expanded fearful when it drizzled, as well as can not even stand up to the view of water on television. She had brilliant problems including water.
Callahan and also Mary had actually been servicing this trouble with each other for over a year. Mary functioned up the courage to sit within sight of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's home. Also doing this created Mary severe distress, and also though she discovered methods to manage the extreme concern and also emotional pain, she did not conquer her fear. They discussed her issue, and how to overcome it, yet without success.
Dr. Callahan had actually recently been researching typical Chinese medicines, as well as learning about meridians. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture factor for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, believing it might treat her tummy discomforts.
Also much more surprisingly, her anxiety of water went away, as well! She ran down to the pool and also started sprinkling herself with water, celebrating in her newly found freedom from fear.
Based on this exploration, Dr. Callahan started a collection of investigations to create and improve this technique, which he termed Thought Field Therapy. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutoring in the 1990's, learning the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig began to observe some troubles with TFT, elements that he saw were unneeded complications.
TFT called for specialists to touch on a specific sequence of meridians (called a formula) for each and every different issue. Diagnosing the problem required a technique called muscle testing, wherein the practitioner would determine the family member stamina of a muscle mass, while the individual discovered different ideas or declarations.
Gary observed duplicated situations where the trouble was improperly identified or the expert tapped out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the patient was still aided. Based upon these monitorings, he concluded that it did not matter where order the meridian factors were tapped.
Gary Craig created EFT as a streamlined, enhanced version of the principles behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one fundamental, simple sequence of indicate touch, regardless of what the situation.
Due to the fact that of this, thousands of people have used Touching for illnesses as well as to settle emotional issues. Tapping professionals have actually examined the techniques as well as trained to take on a lot more challenging as well as hard cases, and also these devoted professionals report more effective applications day-to-day.
