I want to introduce all my readers to EFT and the idea of using it (Emotional Freedom Technique) as a marriage and relationship enhancing tool or skill. Alan and I have routinely practiced EFT together over the years with great personal benefits. We also use it professionally, mostly with quite amazing results.
I discovered EFT about 15 years ago when I downloaded Gary Craig’s free online manual http://www.emofree.com and devoured all his DVDs on the subject. EFT operates on the same principles as Acupuncture, but without the needles, and in my view it is one of the most simple and profound, literally life changing techniques.
In my view, many of our chronic physical and emotional pain and difficulties have their roots in emotion generated during our early years, often preverbal or even pre-natal. EFT is great for clearing these. This video gives a basic explanation.
As you can see from the video, EFT is used for many serious physical as well as emotional conditions. What people don’t generally recognise is that when they settle into a couple relationship, all their unconscious hurts and emotional pain gets triggered by the people we love simply because we love them and are much more sensitive to them and what they say and do, than to other people. We are attached to them, and all our emotional issues around early attachment figures such as parents, tend to get projected onto our partner without us realising we are doing that.
The beauty of EFT is that it doesn’t require us to get into a great deal of deep discussion about the issues, but just the feeling, which is then quite quickly dissolved, usually permanently, and it is something which couples can be taught quickly and easily.
The trouble is many people feel self conscious or uncomfortable, because the tapping on acupressure points seems a little strange. Not nearly so strange as finishing up with chronic illnesses or divorce!
