EFT Tapping or the Emotional Freedom Technique is not just the newest kid on the block as far as really amazing stress management techniques is concerned, it's much more than that. EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques can, not only, help you manage your stress, it can help you eliminate stress from your life forever and just about every other negative emotion or physical ailment that you have ever experienced.
And the tapping points and correct languaging are really not that hard to learn. It takes a little practice, but once you have the hang of it, the results can be miraculous.
In fact, it could very well be one of the easiest stress solutions ever discovered. And it is very cheap to access. If fact, it's free and you do it on yourself. It is completely self-administered.
So what's ailing you? Do you have repressed emotion in your life? Do you have physical pain? Do you have a weight problem? Do you have really ridiculous levels of stress? EFT tapping can help get rid of all of it.
Dr. Gabor Maté, author of When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress says that a very high percentage of chronic disease in life, including all the big ones like Cancer, Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, Asthma and many others, all have very big links to serious repressed emotion and stress. The development of your brain (healthy or unhealthy) in the first 3-5 years of your life sets the stage for a lifelong battle with repressed emotion, often leading to disease.
Dr. Maté tells us that if we never get rid of that repressed emotion and start living to our full potential, we are far more likely to end up with serious chronic disease than people who had a far less stressed early childhood. EFT tapping can help you release those emotions and give you back your life.
On a personal level, I have used EFT for all kinds of issues, all with great success. I use it to shut off the chatter in my head when I can't get to sleep, I used it to get through a grueling six-day test for my MBA studies (stress city), I have used it to get rid of migraine headache pain, I have used it with my children to conquer all kinds of stress and fear and I have used it to deal with cold symptoms and my Asthma.
Sometimes the stress release is immediate, as was the case with my test stress and my sleep stress. With my headache pain, I noticed 80% reduction in pain levels immediately and the remainder dissipated within another hour. With each challenge I get differing levels of results and sometimes I have to do more or less rounds of EFT to solve the problem.
However, overall, I have had fantastic results using this amazing stress management technique.
