Insomnia Free With Eft

Would you like a ‘secret’ friend to help you overcome your insomnia?

Let me tell you about Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). It is one of the most highly effective, energy-healing processes available to us today. It is a very easy method to open up blocked energy channels in our bodies. It is important to understand the basic principles of EFT, so that you can easily apply the process to your sleep issues. EFT can be used as a pre-bed activity or can be implemented if you wake up during the night and have difficulty going back to sleep.

But first, let’s develop a general understanding about the process itself. As you are aware, the human body has a tremendous amount of energy flowing through it along the energy meridians. The understanding is that when energy is blocked in one of these systems, it can have a direct physiological effect and can cause any number of illnesses, pains, negative emotions, feelings and behaviors. None of this is comfortable, nor do we want this discomfort to remain in our bodies.

EFT is a very simple process that can effectively alleviate, mitigate or remove these energy blockages in many circumstances. The EFT process is easy to learn and to remember. You physically use your fingertips to tap on the body’s energy meridians (acupoints) thereby opening the energy channels and clearing the energy blockage. You can view the actual tapping points at http://www.thespiritofsleep.com/eft_secret_friend.html. Honestly, it takes about 1 – 2 minutes to gently tap each of these acupoints about 5 to 7 times each. This process is very quick to do and often is amazingly successful. It is a painless form of acupuncture, which the Chinese and other eastern cultures have been using for over 5000 years to heal any number of maladies.

The founder of EFT is Gary Craig. EFT has been in existence since 1995. There are literally thousands upon thousands of case studies chronicling its effectiveness for healing and eliminating many negative and painful issues in our lives that bother us whether emotional, psychological or physiological – sleep is just one of these issues. As Gary Craig says, try it on everything. You can visit his extensive web site at – http://www.emofree.com. Here you will find a wealth of information, excellent instructional CD’s and DVD’s, as well as wide-ranging testimonials on the effectiveness of using EFT for what ails you, including insomnia.

Thinking you must solve a problem now can cause many wakeful hours. If you are worrying about a current problem and attempting to find a solution to alleviate the problem, this situation can be frequently “taken to bed”, which further feeds your insomnia.

Anxiety is a real sleep-depriver. Perhaps you are dwelling on an anxiety-producing situation like dealing with a sick family member, a recent death, marital problem, maintaining your job, or some dominant health or business issue. When these anxiety-producing thoughts surface before going to bed or during the night, write them down.

Your subconscious is extremely powerful. If you turn your issues over to your subconscious, many creative solutions will present themselves. It is well known that many famous inventions have originated during sleep or while the inventor is in the theta wave state. The issue(s) causing your insomnia may be hidden deeply in your subconscious. EFT can be an excellent too to use to uncover whatever you’ve buried.

Let me give you an example. One night while awake with thoughts running rampant, I found myself thinking incessantly about what I was going to wear the next day. The clothing options played over and over in my mind. Even when I’d made a mental choice, I still couldn’t seem to let go of the mental chatter. Two days later I had a session with an EFT specialist to probe deeper into this wakefulness. When asked what I’d thought about during this extended wake-up period, I explained my relentless thoughts about what to wear, which in hindsight was ridiculous as I have lots of clothes that I look good in. So why did these thoughts keep me awake? It all boiled down to my perfectionism. And why did I need to be perfect? With some probing, I realized it all stemmed from wanting to please my parents. Wow! Did that ever go back a long way. We tapped on this perceived (and unrealistic) need to be perfect.

That was a number of months ago since this writing. I just realized that this particular subconscious issue has not returned even during any minor wake–up. You just simply may not know what is buried ~ how deep ~ and how far back it goes.

You can do EFT on your own, however sometimes, when the issues run deeper, a skilled practitioner can lead you to uncovering the issue quite quickly.

Practicing EFT

There are basically 3 easy ways to practice EFT:

1. On your own

2. Tapping along with Gary Craig’s CD/DVD’s.

3. Tapping with an EFT specialist.

Sometimes, getting to the heart of the matter requires another set of eyes and ears.

You know by now that you create your daytime reality. Let EFT help you create a positive nighttime reality. In general, EFT is a remarkable healing process. It can reduce or totally eliminate stress and emotions resulting from stressful events. The result? You sleep more restfully.

Author and Sleep Coach, Glenda Sparling, can help you address and overcome the challenges you face around sleep issues and insomnia.

EFT, Your Key To Transforming The Quality Of Your Life

For many, EFT is a term either that is vaguely familiar or possibly this is the first time you have heard about it. EFT, also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques, is part of a group of techniques that deal with energy – quite specifically our body’s energy and one way in which it may be used is to relieve stress which exerts a negative energy on the body.

We are all energy and are created from energy. Everything around you is made of energy. If you were to look at your hand through a very powerful microscope, you would actually see down through the layers of skin and muscle, down into the arteries and veins, into the blood, the cells, and eventually get down to the molecular level where you would actually be viewing each individual electron, proton, all evolving around and emitting energy. We are all created from energy and are living in a world filled with and created by energy.

We learned in high school chemistry that atoms are the basic building blocks of all matter. There is nothing new about this. We also know that atoms are made of ENERGY in the form of positive and negative electrical charges. This is an undisputed FACT. Einstein emphasized this point with the Theory of Relativity formula: Energy + Mass times the speed of light squared, which simply means that ALL physical matter, including our bodies, is MADE OF ENERGY. This simple fact is one of the most universally agreed upon findings in the scientific world. It is accepted as well as the law of gravity.

But Western conventional medical science has ignored it. The human body continues to be treated as simply a container filled with parts and chemicals. So, the medical methods that are generally used to treat us involve the repair or replacement of our body parts (by surgery) and the “correction” of our chemistry through the use of other chemicals into our system in the manner of drugs. Techniques such as EFT can play a major role in the medical community in keeping people healthy when combined with current practices.

The energy system of the human body was nicely mapped out over 4,500 years ago by the Chinese and that map was so accurate that it is still in use today. Combining the two, western and eastern medicines would most certainly yield magnificent results for the patient. As a matter of fact, in the United States, these worlds began to merge a little over 20 years ago by Dr. Roger Callahan, a psychologist who had become dissatisfied with the results of traditional talk therapy.

Dr. Callahan combined western ideas with eastern methods and designed a unique but rather complex and involved therapy using the traditional acupuncture points – but without the needles. This was the beginning of TFT or Thought Field Therapy. One of his early students, Gary Craig, a personal performance coach, ordained minister and Stanford engineering graduate, felt Dr. Callahan’s technique, though brilliant and yielding great results, was quite lengthy and awkward to learn. So Gary began to experiment with Dr. Callahan’s TFT, making adaptations here and there, and after much trial and persistence, Gary was able to refine and shorten Dr. Callahan’s TFT, evolving it down into the technique we now know as EFT.

Emotinal Freedom Techniques is based on the ancient art of acupuncture and uses many of the same energy meridians or energy sensitive points on our body that have been used in traditional acupuncture for over 4,500 years only instead of activating these meridians or points with needles, we activate them through a series of gentle tapping while focusing on a specific problem or issue.

In general there are about 70 of these meridians or specific points on the skin, which can be stimulated for distinct effects and can be used to treat a multitude of negative emotions and conditions. In Emotional Freedom Techniques, we primarily use nine. EFT often works where other programs or techniques have failed. It works quickly, easily, and painlessly which is part of what makes it so magnificent.

It has been determined by Gary Craig, the developer and founder of EFT, that the cause of all negative emotions is due to a disruption in our body’s energy system. In other words’ take this scenario: you experience a troubling event which creates a memory. This event causes an emotion which creates an energy disturbance which leads to a self defeating emotional response.

EFT neutralizes the negative emotion causing the disruption to your energy system, removing its effects and in doing so realigns your energy system so that energy may once again flow freely through all meridians. The EFT procedure works to retrain your subconscious to enable it to recall the memory or issue without the emotional attachment. This allows you to think clearly, rationally and logically which is much more productive and positive. Then, when you recall the issue or memory again, you may do so without the previous emotional response.

EFT works on a host of issues and problems. As Gary Craig says, “Try it on everything”. Personally, I have not found anything yet that has not responded to EFT. It is possible to: relieve pain with EFT, to relieve stress with EFT, reduce or relieve anxiety with EFT, and even use EFT for weight loss. This energy technique also works for positive issues such as increased motivation, increasing personal or professional performance, and you can improve academics with EFT as well. The sky is the limit so to speak.

I love the rapid results my clients receive and they love learning this powerful, life changing tool because once they learn it, they have the ability to manage issues such as fear, pain, stress, anxiety, anger, guilt, resentment, doubt, low self-esteem, sadness, jealousy or other negative emotions as they come up during the day by themselves. It truly is empowering and that is one of the qualities I admire most about EFT.

Once you understand how to use this dynamic tool, you become empowered and better able to have the quality of life or business you desire.
