Recently I wrote an article about how EFT can help you in your network marketing business. Since then I have had a few questions about how EFT works I thought I would expand on the subject a bit. Hopefully my explanation helps a bit.


EFT is a form of psychological acupressure that uses a gentle tapping technique instead of needles to stimulate traditional Chinese acupuncture points. It works even if you don’t believe it will work.


Every cell has receptor sites. Things that happen in our life, thoughts we have, something that happens to us, something we witness happening to someone else, an injury, a trauma, etc. The hypothalamus releases chemicals that are called peptides. These peptides are short chain amino acids that we experience as an emotion; all the emotions are simply chemical combinations. They attach themselves to the cells and can cause problems if they are not processed.


Our emotional issues are connected with our cells and our body organs. Each EFT point we tap corresponds with a body organ. When we tap on the designated points on the face and body and combine it with with focusing and verbalizing the identified problem, we are speaking directly to your body, bypassing the conscious mind. This completes the processing of those chemicals out of the cell receptors, bringing our body back into balance. We are tapping acupuncture points instead of using needles.


We can actually release all kinds of negative emotional issues. Since we’re speaking directly to your body and not your mind, you don’t have to believe it will work in order for it to work. You can remain completely skeptical and still get great results!


EFT points and Corresponding Body Organ Meridians:


    beginning of the eyebrow – bladder
    side of eye – gallbladder
    under eye – stomach
    under nose – governing vessel
    chin – central vessel
    collarbone – kidney
    under arm – spleen/ pancreas
    under breast – liver
    thumb – lung
    index finger – large intestine
    middle finger – circulation
    baby finger – heart
    Karate point – small intestine


EFT is powerful in releasing blocks and fears that hold us back in our business but also in enhancing positive changes we intend to attract. Once you have released negative emotions, you can use EFT with positive affirmations to replace the negative with positive feelings that move you closer to where you would like to go.


Whether you realize it or not, Law of Attraction is always working. The words you use and the thoughts you are thinking effect the level of success and abundance you will have in your business. Affirmations can be helpful but EFT makes them work better. With EFT, you are tapping on the various body organ points and driving the intent into your cells.


The potential is pretty powerful wouldn’t you say?


EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques is a form of psychological acupressure. With EFT you are tapping on various acupuncture meridian points while you focus on a negative issue you would like to change.


About 5,000 years ago, the Chinese discovered a complex system of energy circuits that run throughout the body. These energy circuits, or meridians, are the centerpiece of
Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other techniques.


With EFT, we are using a tapping technique instead of needles to stimulate traditional Chinese acupuncture points. While tapping various points on the face and body we are also verbalizing the issue followed by a general affirmation phrase.


EFT works on the physical and emotional level. You don’t have to believe it will work in order to get results. Many people have been skeptical when they first tried it.


Here’s a quote from Gary Craig’s EFT Manual:

The cause of ALL negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. This includes fears, phobias, anger, grief, traumatic memories, PTSD, worry, guilt and all limiting emotions in sports, business and the performing arts. That’s a comprehensive list and covers just about every restrictive emotion we can experience.”


“Differently stated, this means that all these negative emotions have the same cause…. an electrical “zzzzzt” in the body. It also means…they can all be relieved in a similar manner.”


Everything we experience in our past from childhood on up affects our programming. Some of those experiences were very stressful, maybe even traumatic. The negative experiences around those events become an electrical “zzzzzt” in the body which can become blocks that affect our business and other things we want to do in life.


Here is an example from my life:
When I was 9 years old I was abducted by a stranger. I was able to escape but the event was terrifying. It affected me from that point on. I was afraid to go anywhere alone and I didn’t trust strangers. I have had subconscious protection programming going on that contributed to my not feeling comfortable in visible leadership roles. Actually it was quite a bit more than an uncomfortable feeling.


When I started my network marketing career, it was in spite of an intense fear of being a leader. At first I didn’t understand why I was so afraid. All I knew is that I had to be a leader if I wanted success in network marketing. I pressed on in spite of the fear.


I didn’t know EFT in the beginning but I was bull headed and would not give up. I knew my WHY and I was determined to be successful. You know how they say your WHY should make you cry? Mine did and STILL DOES!


That childhood memory caused me to be afraid to go anywhere alone, afraid to be visible and afraid to trust strangers. You can imagine how that would cause a lot of limiting beliefs in a business where I have to be a visible leader and talk to strangers.


When I learned EFT things really started shifting. I was able to remove the negative emotions around the abduction attempt and start clearing the layers of protection I have put up. I have even traveled alone, on a plane. Fear of flying is another fear I was able to remove with EFT.


I admit, I am still working on some things but I know I have power in tapping. The reason I tell you this is because, if I can get through my issues and become a successful network marketing leader, then surely you can too. I have changed so much over the years thanks to personal development and EFT. It’s why I love to help people learn EFT and what Esteem Power Newsletter is all about.


EFT also works nicely removing limiting beliefs and negative emotions around the Law Of Attraction.


Anyway …


Just thought it might help you understand how useful EFT can be for you to release your own emotional blocks and limitations.
