This form of meditation offers you an accessible tool to help you deal with any troublesome memories or thoughts. It is wonderful to know that some of the difficulties you could experience within a meditation can be unlocked through EFT Tapping meditation.
How does it work?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an evidence-based self-help therapeutic method which when applied with meditation can have a profound healing effect also helping reduce cortisol levels significantly in the body.
EFT is commonly referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. There is a body of evidence that says we hold negative emotions within our bodies and this has a disruption in the body’s energy system resulting in feeling like you can’t move on from or let go of past issues or traumas (the memory is literally stored inside the body sometimes without our conscious awareness).
EFT works by tapping the fingertips on certain acupuncture points through which “life energy” flows in the body (meridian points) to release blockages. These specific pathways of energy or meridians help balance energy flow to maintain health and well-being. An imbalance of energy flow can result in physical or mental sickness.
Those who meditate consistently with EFT tend to be calmer, even in the face of troublesome surprises or nagging traumatic memories. That is because they’ve cultivated a stillness within that allows them to acknowledge these thoughts and memories with a reduction in the emotional charge experienced.
