After doing this video, I was reviewing my notes and realized that although everyone seems to have a different sense of what pressure points are important, I skipped a very simple and important one: The outside of your hand. You can tap the fleshy bit of your hand on the outside between your pinky and your wrist, and it's great if you're in public or anything like that.
Here's the write-up, for anyone who can't view the video.
This chapter was about EFT, which stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. I haven’t had enough experience with EFT yet to properly write in depth about it, but the technique seems to be all about combining psychology techniques with energy medicine.
I did try EFT a few times, and I will say that is quite calming to be able to repeat the series of tapping while speaking out loud about problems and anxieties that I am facing. Anxiety, depression, and mental or emotional stress can often lead to physical manifestations, and EFT seems like a good tool to chip away at those feelings with.
Fear of change can be a good thing to start with, because it is a common fear that makes it very difficult to solve your problems. A lot of blockades towards your personal success come from yourself, and this is often in the form of fear. Fear of change, fear of failure, and fear of unworthiness are all personal fears which can stand in the way of our personal success and happiness.
After tapping on something like fear, try tapping on something really specific. Try it for a few days. Do you feel any different?
What do you think about alternative medicine and techniques? Have you ever tried EFT? I would love to hear any stories from people who successfully use alternative healing techniques or methods.
