There is a wonderful technique for freeing yourself from emotional baggage and it works so efficiently and effectively that you almost won't believe it. It involves tapping lightly with your fingertips on various acupuncture points, while verbalizing the mental chatter going through your mind about a particular issue. The reason this method works so well is that we store a lot of old traumas in our tissues and every time something in our lives trigger these memories, our internal energy flow is disrupted causing real physical, mental and emotional challenges. When we talk through a troublesome issue and the emotions behind it while tapping along the body's meridians, we in effect, re-write the scripts that programs our lives. In other words, we heal.
For instance, if you suffered a great loss of a loved one in the early years of your life, your mind and body probably developed a code to self-sabotage close relationships as a way to safeguard from the pain and grief of that experience. But, what this repeating subconscious message does for you as you grow and develop, having new experiences, is block you energetically from moving on, It systematically limits you from having new, rewarding and uplifting relationships. With Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), you begin to break the code and stall this over-reactive negative response based on your past, therefore reorganizing your mind/body to adapt higher solutions.
1st Phase - The Set Up - This is the statement you create based on your particular issue and repeat several times as you tap on your, 'side of hand' meridian. Let it be a clear and concise expression of the specific core problem. Give it a rating of severity from 1 to 10 with 1 being not so disturbing and 10, very disturbing.
Let's say your issue is a mistrust of close relationships, because of a tragic loss of a loved one. This could be your set-up statement:
Even though, I lost the love of my life, I still do love and accept myself fully and completely and I know that God loves and accepts me, too.
2nd Phase - Tapping through the Emotions/Beliefs - Many thoughts and feelings will be triggered as you do the first phase, here you can begin to verbally state these as they come up, while continuing to tap along various meridians as shown.
Losing love is so painful. Why did this have to happen to me? What did I do wrong? I don't deserve love. I never want to hurt like that again. Love ends, Love dies. This relationship failed. That relationship failed. I have no chance of love. I'm lonely and sad. I need some support. I want to be strong.
3rd Phase - The Resolution - As you're proceeding with the second phase you may find that intense, deeply stored emotional pain will surface; keep Tapping through this pain, remembering to verbally express what's coming up around the issue. Then, when you've gotten it all out, all the negatives, begin to tap on the ray of hope coming into view or any positive spin that is developing around the issue.
There are many other loved ones who are still here for me. Death is a part of life. Fearing it will only keep me stuck. I can allow myself to love again. My [deceased loved one] would want me to love fully again. I let it be easy to let go of the grief. I am ready to release the pain. It is time for me to move on. I love closeness and bonding and intimacy. I was made for love. I am safe now. I choose love.
When you are complete, make sure to rate the severity level of the issue on the 1-10 scale. You may have to revisit the issue again and again in future tapping sessions depending on how severe it is. However, you will see a marked lowering in disturbance level each time you do this process. The key is, through this process you never stop tapping on the meridian points, as this seemingly small act is what shifts your body/mind blocked energy flow around the issue. Many have reported immediate relief from phobias, allergies, environmental illness, addictions, long-standing money problems and the list goes on. Try this and see how wonderfully it works for you.
