"Intro to EFT" classes

 

Imagine waking up every day, breathing in and out,
to the feeling of being embraced in comfort,
love, peace and fulfilment.

Would you choose this as your ‘typical day’?
Well, now you CAN choose!       The Answer is EFT.

 

 

What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a very powerful self-help tool which is easy to learn, non-invasive, and simple to use.  Tapping your fingers gently on your meridian lines (your acupressure/acupuncture points) can bring very rapid and profound results, often clearing issues which have become a chronic presence in your life.  When using EFT correctly, all your memories of past situations remain, but the emotion which was unhappily unresolved gets released - removed from that memory.  You have the same memories; they just no longer feel upsetting to you.

 

EFT can successfully resolve emotional traumas, from the relatively mild, "Mum loved you best" family turmoils up to and including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in soldiers returning from conflict.   Physical pain, even chronic issues like arthritis, fibromyalgia, or accident related injuries can be greatly reduced or entirely eliminated through using EFT.

 

Stress can be a major negative underlying factor of all health issues and can block you in achieving your goals.  Chronic/emotionally charged stress causes brain fog, blocking your ability to think clearly, make good decisions or focus on your goals.  Whether those goals are career/financial/abundance related, relationship or personal; including  weight loss, self-development or health based,  EFT can assist in reducing the stress that holds you back. 


EFT delivers impressive and often startling results.  EFT involves ‘tapping’ on meridian lines within your body, which allows you to become proactive in improving your health.  The meridian lines used for EFT tapping sequences, are the same energy lines which are used for Acupuncture and Reflexology.  When you put EFT to work for you  - you'll be amazed HOW MUCH your life can change.

 

EFT is easy to learn, and simple to use.

 

If you tried 'talk therapy' -  and you still have ‘luggage’ -

EFT can be the boarding pass that takes you to freedom and happiness.

 

You can change your landscape when you creatively use EFT.

Lighten the extra weight you carry & leave the past behind.

Embrace the relationships you have dreamed of!

 

 

Do you feel overwhelmed?
THAT’s the time to stop and do a quick EFT session!
Tapping can release cravings, even BIG cravings!

 

"EFT is your single most powerful tool for sticking to a weight-loss plan" - Dr. Joseph Mercola

 

EFT looks too simple to be effective - but I challenge you - learn EFT - and try it for 2 weeks!


Get your body in harmony, within itself.

Tap away negative self-talk & disable your emotional triggers.

Learn how to release stress and nourish yourself emotionally -
build happier thought & habits using EFT!

 

 

 

OK, you may not tap in public to kill cravings while in the grocery store or shopping,
But... when you are standing alone in front of the fridge door, late at night,
~  tapping for just 5 minutes  ~
could help you lose twenty pounds!

 

 

 

 

Breakthroughs in Energy Psychology:

A New Way to Heal the Body and Mind.

Excerpt from 120317 Huffington Post, Article by Nick Ortner

What's unique about EFT is how it combines Eastern wisdom about acupressure, or "meridian points," in our bodies, with traditional Western psychotherapy.  The practice consists of tapping with your fingertips on specific meridian points while talking through traumatic memories and a wide range of emotions.  "Acupoint tapping sends signals directly to the stress centers of the mid-brain, not mediated by the frontal lobes (the thinking part, active in talk therapy)," explains Dr. Church, Ph.D., who has been researching and using EFT since 2002.  Because EFT simultaneously accesses stress on physical and emotional levels, he adds, "EFT gives you the best of both worlds, body and mind."

In fact, it's EFT's ability to access the amygdala, an almond-shaped part of your brain that initiates your body's negative reaction to fear (a process we often refer to as the "fight or flight" response) that makes it so powerful.  "By reducing stress," adds Church, "EFT helps with many problems.  There's a stress component to sports performance, business and financial pressure, and most disease.  When you reduce stress in one area of your life, there's often a beneficial effect in other areas."

Church estimates that 10 million people worldwide have used tapping, and what's so exciting is how incredibly quickly it's alleviating issues like depression, anxiety and insomnia, as well severe PTSD, physical pain, even illness.

In partnership with Dr. David Feinstein, Dr. Church has been able to confirm that tapping on specific meridian points has a positive effect on reducing cortisol levels.  Cortisol, known as the "stress hormone," is integral to our body's "fight or flight" response.  Originally designed to help us survive life in the wild, the "fight or flight" response was essential when our ancient ancestors were faced with sudden, brief danger like, let's say, a tiger.  However useful in short bursts, releasing cortisol too frequently, as we seem to be doing in response to the ongoing or "chronic" stress of modern life, may have serious, even scary, impacts on our physical, mental and emotional health.  In fact, living in this kind of biological "survival mode" may be making us more vulnerable to everything from cancer to heart disease, and more.

Dr. Janice Smylie has been using EFT since 2003 and teaching EFT since 2004.  I have attended major training events and have done some personal work with Gary H. Craig, the creator of EFT.  In 2003 and afterwards I attended a Borrowing Benefits Conference, two Conferences on Serious Diseases, and I was also invited to be part of an EFT  Masters training program.  When you are ready to open your heart and mind to new thoughts and behaviours, you can experience a major shift in your life.  You can gain a better balance in your relationships and feel happier.  Some issues or challenges require persistent tapping for a period of time, and sometimes the assistance of a skilled practitioner is the key to success.

 

 

EFT doesn’t do everything for everyone,

yet what it does do will astound you!

 

When EFT is properly applied over 80% of all issues achieve either
a very noticeable improvement or a complete cessation of the problem.
You can expect substantial relief of symptoms with EFT in the first session.



 

 

Gary H. Craig created EFT based on the work of Dr. Roger Callahan

More than twenty years ago, Gary H. Craig created Emotional Freedom Techniques, based on simplifying the work of Dr. Roger Callahan who discovered ‘psychological reversal’ (negative energy polarity) could be eliminated by tapping on the body's meridian lines.  Gary Craig, a student of Dr. Callahan's, worked out a general routine of tapping which included all the main meridian lines.  This general routine, which he named Emotional Freedom Techniques, was easy to learn.  Benefits of EFT are now being recognized.  Use of EFT has been shown on TV and in magazines around the world.  Clinical studies have been printed in Australia and more studies are under way.

In 2003, 1½ hours of EFT lifted an 8 year long depression for which I had been taking medication.

I KNOW personally, how AMAZING EFT is!

20 years of chronic back pain ALSO disappeared.

EFT changed my world!                  What benefits would you like EFT to give you?

 


Learning to use EFT effectively is potentially life-altering.  Using EFT could be the point you look back on as one of the most pivotal experiences of your life.   Think of the changes which would help your family, your children, your  brothers and sisters, your co-workers, employees, your pets, and everyone else around you...    EFT could change your life forever.



What's your challenge?    Are you ready to let go?

 

How long you have been tightly holding on to anger/hurt/pain/frustration towards people or events from your past?

"Holding on" requires your energy!  Isn't "letting go" more valuable?

 

Imagine freeing and using ALL your attention and energy for creating only the situations and relationships you DO want!

EFT impressively changed this woman’s life!

 

I had been taking 4-6 Arthritis pain killers every day for 3 years.  It was too expensive for me to continue on that way, and the drugs didn’t make the pain go away.  I didn’t like always being in pain.  One day my daughter told me about EFT, and I decided to give it a try.  I tapped three times every day.  After 30 days, I was taking 4-6 pain killers a week, instead of every day.  And now, I only need to take them occasionally.  I am sold on EFT!

 

Even if you're a sceptic, please give EFT a try.  EFT changed my life and can change yours, too!

 

My Diabetes specialist calls me his miracle patient!  I had serious open infected diabetes sores around both ankles, and doctors were worried that I was headed toward a double leg amputation.  I used EFT many times daily.  The EFT reduced my fear and took away the pain, while my ulcers healed.  EFT works – that’s the important part.
