EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique and is an experimental energy therapy method used my some therapists, coaches and individuals. Using some of the meridian tapping points from Chinese acupuncture and your fingers, it is performed by lightly tapping on your upper body while saying certain phrases out loud. It’s often referred to as acupuncture without the needles.

Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, has now retired but there are many good resources out there to learn EFT, but I highly recommend that one start with downloading the free manual at EFT Universe and read it. (This is a new version of Gary’s former EFT site.)

The beauty of EFT is that you can try it on everything: from physical pain, emotional issues, addictions, phobias and stress, to name a few. What is even more interesting is that you don’t have to believe in it in order for it to work and people have been known to benefit from tapping along with a group on someone else’s issue and receive benefits. While it may not work for everyone, EFT shows promise for our future in that it doesn’t cost anything, most can learn how to do it and there are no medicines to take.

I use EFT to peel away the layers of “junk” that we often carry around with us that is blocking our progress in deliberately creating what we desire. I particularly like to tap on “old stories” we tell ourselves that no longer serve us, self-loving affirmations that soften the way we feel about ourselves, and our fears. But as I mentioned above, EFT can work on anything. I had particular success in no longer needing my reading glasses, while tapping on some anger issues I still had about my ex-husband. Three months later, I realized that I no longer needed those glasses. You can read about that in the “Feel Good Articles” section on this website. It was after my reading vision had improved that I became familiar with EFT Master Carol Look’s research on using EFT for improving one’s eyesight.
