“Your goals, dreams and aspirations: if you’re not achieving them, then at some level they are connected to a fight or flight response.” Hear the fascinating theory behind how tapping works from Nick Ortner, who breaks it down for the Wanderlust Speakeasy crowd with a sense of humour and compassion.
“These days,” says Nick, “we are activating our fight or flight responses in a variety of circumstances. Frustrated goals, mounting stress, patterns of self-sabotage: at the most basic level are stress responses related to fight or flight responses. The latest research shows us that when we hit these meridian points in the body while focusing on certain issues, we are actually sending a signal to the amydgala in the brain. The amygdala is the fight or flight response center.” In this Speakeasy lecture, Nick explains how tapping can release these fears and patterns.
Nick Ortner is the producer of the documentary film, “The Tapping Solution.” Nick is a “searcher,”constantly reading, exploring and experimenting with the incredible information all around that can change lives. When he found EFT Tapping, and was startled by the results, he knew he had to find a way to get this information into the mainstream. He produced “The Tapping Solution,” a best-selling documentary film that features 10 people overcoming enormous challenges by using EFT Tapping. The film features experts like Jack Canfield, Bruce Lipton, Joe Vitale, Bob Proctor, Cheryl Richardson, Dr. Joe Mercola and more. He also produced the worldwide online event “The Tapping World Summit,” which has been attended by over 500,000 people in the past four years (all for free!) and manages the monthly membership program, the “Tapping Insiders Club.” He has produced and coordinated other project s on health and wellness, such as David Wolfe’s “21 Days to Health” program, and is an owner and managing director of another documentary, “Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days.”

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - is a fairly new discovery and also a fast-evolving treatment within the area of Power Psychology which is catching the focus of healers, researchers, fortune-tellers and lay people.
Commonly referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing clogs within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and also pain. These clogs in our energy system, in enhancement to challenging us psychologically, typically lead to restricting beliefs as well as behaviours and also a lack of ability to live life harmoniously.
An EFT treatment entails making use of fingertips as opposed to needles to touch on completion points of power meridians that are located just beneath the surface area of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive and works on the principles of making change as straightforward and also as pain cost-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. Albert Einstein likewise informed us back in the 1920's that whatever (including our bodies) is made up of energy. These concepts have actually been greatly ignored by Western Recovery Practices and also as they are revealed in our present times, human process is resuming itself to the forgotten reality that every little thing is Power and also the capacity that this offers us.
In the short time because it's beginning by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has actually offered countless people with relief from all type of issues and also conditions, typically in amazingly double-quick time and also after lengthy and also agonizing periods of looking for a cure. The diversity of effective therapies have actually ranged from trauma and also misuse, phobias, self screwing up practices patterns, to deep collection emotional problems of stress and anxiety and also clinical depression, dependencies, physical health problem, to name but a couple of.
EFT is drawing attention from the wide spectrum of healing specialists; from the researchers to the fortune-tellers as well as every person in between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old and also new standards.
EFT brings back awareness as well as rely on the natural healing abilities of our mind and body, supplying ground-breaking chances to attaining physical as well as emotional health in a faster time frame.
Because the techniques are so simple, they can be made use of effectively as a self-help device, which equips individuals to actively add to their own recovery as well as development process. This promotes a much faster alleviation procedure, formerly believed difficult by medical care specialists that supported prolonged (& usually unpleasant) hrs in psychotherapeutic or medical care, typically with limited outcomes. These techniques do not reject the medical as well as psychotherapeutic professions, yet instead serve to add to an all natural healing process.
EFT works to get rid of such disturbances and also eliminate the resulting emotional response or intensity to bring back emotional harmony and also offer remedy for physical pain.
This is done by focusing on the details trouble whilst tapping with fingers on the end points of energy meridians.

It started in 1980, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, and a client with an extreme anxiety of water. Mary's worry of water controlled her life and also maintained her from daily activities. She was not able to take her youngsters to the coastline as well as was incapable to drive near the ocean; she grew afraid when it rained, and can not even endure the view of water on TV. She had vivid problems including water.
Dr. Callahan as well as Mary had been working on this trouble with each other for over a year. Mary worked up the courage to sit within sight of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's home.
Her concern of being near the water created Mary belly pains - an usual "gut reaction." Dr. Callahan had actually recently been examining traditional Chinese medicines, and also learning about meridians. Unexpectedly he had an ideas. Keeping in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the stomach meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, thinking it might cure her tummy discomforts.
Mary touched her cheekbone as routed, and this little action altered medical background! The response appeared incredible, to both Mary as well as Dr. Callahan. Her belly discomforts went away. Even more incredibly, her anxiety of water went away, too! She ran down to the swimming pool and also began splashing herself with water, rejoicing in her newly found freedom from fear.
Based on this exploration, Dr. Callahan began a series of examinations to establish as well as improve this technique, which he termed Thought Area Therapy. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutelage in the 1990's, discovering the treatments for TFT. As time passed, Craig began to observe some problems with TFT, aspects that he saw were unneeded difficulties.
TFT called for practitioners to tap on a particular series of meridians (called a formula) for every various issue. Identifying the problem needed a technique called muscular tissue screening, where the expert would certainly measure the family member toughness of a muscle, while the individual explored numerous ideas or statements.
Gary observed repeated situations in which the problem was inaccurately diagnosed or the specialist tapped out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the person was still aided. Based on these observations, he concluded that it did not matter in which order the meridian points were tapped.
Craig established EFT as a simplified, enhanced variation of the concepts behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one fundamental, easy series of indicate touch, whatever the circumstance.
Since of this, thousands of people have actually used Touching for diseases as well as to resolve emotional problems. Tapping specialists have examined the techniques and educated to take on more complicated as well as hard instances, as well as these devoted professionals report more successful applications day-to-day.
