What is EFT?
EFT, or, 'Emotional Freedom Techniques', uses light tapping along the body's meridian points -- the same points used in Acupuncture, but with fingertips instead of needles.
A client focuses on a bothersome issue or memory during this tapping, and can usually experience relief in minutes on something that may have been an issue for months, sometimes even years.
Sounds crazy ... impossible, even. Yet EFT has quickly become mainstream, as everyday folks like you and me from all over the globe are changing themselves and their lives for the better.
Together, we can use this potent, yet easy-to-learn technique to effect positive and lasting life change so that you can get on with the business of being you!
EFT and art go hand-in hand together, quickly unblocking what deserves to be expressed.
Try a little EFT here:
Let's say you're feeling creatively blocked. Bring that blocked feeling to the forefront of your mind, really feeling it, and rate it from 0 - 10 (0 being not at all blocked, 10 being the most blocked). Jot down your rating. This is important because lots of times, EFT so effectively rids a person of any angst around an issue, that they 'forget' they ever felt it very strongly!
Check in with your rate after completing the three rounds you see below. Most often, your rating will go down, but if you find it goes up, it isn't that EFT didn't work, it's simply that another aspect of the issue has come up and needs addressing in the same way as your original presenting issue. But for now ...
Repeat the following 'set-up' statement 3 times while tapping on the 'karate chop' point (the fleshy outside of your hand just below your baby finger). It doesn't matter which hand you use.
Tapping the karate chop point: Even though I want to paint but something is stopping me, and I feel creatively blocked, I deeply and profoundly accept myself. (3 times)
After completing your set-up statement, begin at the top of your head, gently tapping about 5-7 times per point as you recite this EFT script out loud.
Top of the Head: it’s time to paint
Eyebrow: But I don’t feel ready
Side of the Eye: I really want to, but I don’t feel ready
Under the Eye: it won’t be any good
Under the Nose: I don’t know what to paint
Chin: I’m going to ruin it, it just won’t turn out
Collarbone: I used to paint but that was a long time ago
Under the Arm: I really wish I could paint
Top of the Head: Maybe I CAN paint
Eyebrow: I’ve got all my supplies, I might as well use them
Side of the Eye: Maybe this is just a little block
Under the Eye: What if I just let the colors lead me
Under the Nose: What if I’m allowed to paint anything?
Chin: What if it doesn’t matter if I don’t know what to paint?
Collarbone: Maybe I’ll just start
Under the Arm: After all, there really is no pressure today
Top of the Head: I don’t have to be perfect
Eyebrow: I can’t really ruin it, it’s paint! I can always paint over it!
Side of the Eye: What if I just paint for the fun of it?
Under the Eye: This doesn’t have to be a masterpiece
Under the Nose: What if I let go and just let this flow?
Chin: I can always get more paint and canvas. There really is no pressure
Collarbone: Painting is relaxing and helps me express myself
Under the Arm: Maybe it’s outside my comfort zone, but I’ve decided to trust myself
Top of the Head: Look at me being creative and having fun with paints today!
Take a deep breath.
Think strongly of your original issue (being blocked)
Rate and jot down where you are now on the scale from 1-10
Repeat tapping rounds from the beginning until you reach '0', where the issue doesn't bother you at all anymore. (Be sure to take a deep breath and jot down your new rating after each round of tapping.)
Paint a little something…
