Tapping Therapy for Self-Healing

I was browsing my Facebook page and found a post about “tapping” A.K.A. emotional freedom therapy (EFT). I don’t know why it appeared on my page, but it brought back memories of my sister and I trying tapping. Before I continue I would like to share a quote I read somewhere:

“Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein

When I was thinking about this blog this morning, the only thing I could think about writing about was tapping. EFT was brought about by John Diamond and George Goodheart in the 1960s. EFT takes the principles of ancient Chinese acupuncture and removes the needles. The practitioner taps on the same emotional meridian points that would be tapped in another way in acupuncture.

Tapping clears the energy disturbances or “memories”, such as anger and spiritual, emotional, or physical trauma, by tapping on the ten emotional or energy meridians while thinking about the memory. Most of the websites I visited provided free videos to start you off, some wanted you to buy a book or a DVD. The two sites I found most helpful were: Tapping.com and the How to do EFT page at EFT Alive. Each provided a free video or free directions on the technique. I followed the video and found it very helpful.

Why did I include that quote? Einstein said, “Out of clutter” (anger, fears, phobia – emotional disturbances), “find simplicity” (the simple technique of tapping), “From discord” (disturbances in our emotions), “find harmony” (freedom from negative thoughts and feelings). “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

I like this self healing technique – you do not need to go to a specialist, you can teach it to yourself and get help from others. So much in how you feel has to do with your thoughts. If you have anger, sadness, fear, phobias frustration, or any other emotional or physical disruptions, give EFT a try.

About Marilyn

I am a "retired senior" (I've been a school librarian and library tech for a government research facility) who is now pursuing a dream of a home business sewing bags of all sorts, crafting and being the creative person I have always wanted to be. I grew up in the center of Illinois and dreamed of actually living back in the state of Colorado where I was born and lived till the age of 7. That dream came true when I met my husband of 43 years while working together in Estes Park. I am interested in alternative medicine, continuing the good health I've always had, while returning to the pre-processed food era of: eating well, losing weight, and using products that do not harm the environment, me, my family and friends. I am for labeling GMO’s, using sustainable products, organics and finding solutions to everyday problems, like colds and sore muscles, using natural remedies. I have a positive attitude that has helped through a very hard year and will bring forth a life that will be full and happy. My family is wonderful and I am a happy lady, wife, mother, and grandma.
