What is EFT?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, and some people refer to it as “tapping.” EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without using needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem - whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc.
What is interesting is that we have liquid quartz crystals in every cell of our bodies! By tapping these points we are creating a low voltage or piezoelectric charge throughout the lowest layer of our fascia and connective tissue which are found all throughout our entire body. These crystals respond to stimulation and pressure. The signal sent by simply doing EFT soothes the affected organs and clears out blocked cellular receptors. This liquefied quartz reaches every area of our body sending a healing, calming message that relaxes us. We move into a slower alpha and theta brainwave state, cortisol levels drop, and DHEA levels rise.
It is a simple, easy method of internal transformation. For example, if you are stressed or anxious about something, tapping, even just for 10 minutes, can reset your whole system. The graphic below shows the tapping points.
What is Biblically based EFT?
1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast your anxieties upon. Him, because He cares for you.” EFT calms the body and the brain, allowing us to cast our anxieties upon Him and receive His love, His forgiveness and His care.
It is being used successfully to:
Remove Negative Emotions
Remove subconscious mental and emotional blocks
Reduce Food Cravings
Stop self-sabotaging your efforts to improve your health
Reduce or Eliminate Pain
Implement Positive Goals
Harmonize what you believe in your heart with what you consciously believe
Help overcome PTSD
Many Christians I know think EFT is in conflict with God but our negative emotions, false beliefs and lies are what is in conflict with God. I'm so thankful the number of Christians becoming aware of Christian EFT is growing every day.
What many find so different is that the basic Tapping technique requires you to focus on the negative emotion at hand - a fear, a worry, a bad memory, a physical pain, an unresolved problem, or anything that’s bothering you. We have been taught to only focus on the positive, on what we desire, but until we acknowledge and deal with the negative it will not ever be fully resolved and will rear its ugly head each time we experience something that triggers it.
While maintaining your mental focus on this negative issue, you use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times on each of the specific meridian points of the body.
Tapping on these meridian points in sequence while concentrating on the negative emotions engages both the brain’s limbic system and the body’s energy system, encouraging a sense of safety and resolution. And as the scientific field of epigenetics is proving, when you change your internal environment - your emotions and beliefs - external changes in your mental and physical health follows.
