Introducing EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) involves simple procedures that are harmless without any negative side effects. These procedures are: affirmations, tapping, counting, humming and rolling your eyes around in your head.
Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world are using EFT to adjust the body’s subtle energies, with positive results.
Research indicates that EFT, though still in its birthing stages seems to be evolving from the traditional Chinese practice of acupuncture. Chinese medicine claims that there are meridians through which the body’s life energy known as “Chi” flows. The significant difference is that the practice of acupuncture requires needles on the body’s energy points while EFT relies solely on touch.
Additionally, while the practice of acupuncture was developed to correct physical issues, EFT was originally developed to adjust emotional imbalances in the body’s energy system. Over time, EFT has grown to remedy both physical and emotional issues. It appears that some unique facets of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) are combined with the simplified form of Chinese acupuncture to facilitate the EFT protocol.
Testimonials from people following the EFT procedures, reveals that affirmations, tapping on specific body locations, counting, humming and rolling your eyes around one’s head commonly leads to first, dissolving fears, and later releasing a variety of emotional and physical ailments. It seems that by tapping on the energy meridians, while recalling the memory which triggers the negative emotions release the energy blockages.
Historically, the EFT movement can be traced back about 5000 years when the Chinese first discovered that the human bod has a complex system of energy circuits. More recently, in the 1980’s, an American psychologist, Dr. Roger Callahan introduced tapping with his fingertips on specific energy points on patients who were not responding to conventional treatments. At this time, the tapping was not known as EFT.
Gary Craig, a professional engineer, who doubles as a Personal Performance Coach, became a student of Dr. Callahan. By the early 1990’s, Gary Craig has synthesized the science behind the tapping procedures and he labelled the technique EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT became his life’s work and he first created The EFT Manual and later he created this website is: http://www.emofree.com
Gary Craig, one of the strongest advocates of EFT assembled “The Discovery Statement” which reads: “The cause of all negative emotion is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
According to Gary Craig, the full Basic Recipe for EFT consists of these four ingredients and takes about two minutes to perform: (1) the Setup, (2) the Sequence, (3) the 9 Gamut Procedure and (4) The Sequence. This Basic Recipe is explained at this website which has a couple of pages from Gary Craig’s Manual:
