Tapping For Truth | Amy Piper
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as tapping. This is an amazing tool that combines acupressure and modern psychology. EFT is commonly referred to as “emotional acupuncture.’ It not only releases emotional
distress but also goes beyond to reverse negative core beliefs. It combines gentle tapping on key acupuncture points while focusing your thoughts on physical pain, unhappy memories, uncomfortable emotions, traumas, fears/phobias, or any other
EFT works to “smooth out” the energetic disruption between thoughts/ memories and an
emotional reaction. The emotional factors that contribute to the problem are typically
released along with the energy blocks.
The tapping is working directly with the limbic
brain, specifically the amygdala, where our stress response (flight/flight) is controlled.
Tapping has a direct and immediate effect to down-regulate the amygdala. It’s a
powerful tool to clear anxiety, stress, and/or traumatic events/memories that are recent or occurred in our childhood/early years.
As we identify certain patterns/ belief systems in our lives that no longer serve us, we
can tap to clear these patterns. EFT has the power to heal traumatic experiences/memories that are held in the body and energy system.
This allows us to live from a more neutral and joyful place.
