“Emotional Freedom Technique’s Effectivness Increased 15 Ways- Radiant Health, Weight Mastery & Abundance.
by Robert Labensart, CHT, CMT, RYT
“What I believe is true or will become true.”
“The more positive we are the more life brings us abundance, love, radiant health, joy, and peace. “I am strong, I am weak. The only difference is a thought. ” How we respond or react to life’s experiences affects us throughout our whole life. Inner health comes from loving acceptance of whatever we’re feeling. Shifting our interpretation to a more positive outlook brings peace of mind and increased levels of self-confidence. Yoga philosophy emphasizes going from darkness to light, from fear to courage, from anger to forgiveness, from hate to love. Affirmations and positive outlook are wonderful expressions of how we can manifest so much more peace, joy, abundance and love in our life. EFT Tapping Therapy is one of many effective ways to help clear the internal obstacles of worry, fear, depression, sabotaging beliefs or experiences.
*Basic EFT Technique created by Gary Craig: Please Check out his youtube video (http://youtu.be/khrYBaPm8Uo) on how to do this simple and effective self therapy.
Emotional Freedom Technique: Just as acupuncture deactivates areas of the brain that are effected by fear and pain (as evidenced by scientists using MRI to study acupuncture’s effect), EFT tapping on acupuncture points creates a similar therapeutic effect. These electromagnetic effects can help decrease the intensity of upsetting feelings and lessen our reaction to pain.
Procedure: First rate the intensity of your reactions from 0-10 with 10 being very upset and 0 feeling calm, centered, optimistic. Then, gently tap the top of your head, inside of eye brow (near top of nose), under the eye, under the nose, above your chin, below your collar bone, under your arm while focusing on challenging stressful feelings (depression, worry, grief, fear). It doesn’t matter which side of your face you do or which hand you use. Check again to see how much the intensity of your reactions have decreased. If the intensity doesn’t completely clear completely doing the first round of tapping, then you can increase the effectiveness by by tapping first on the side of your hand (little finger side) and saying: Even though I have this ______, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Then do the basic EFT tapping sequence again. Repeat as often as needed.
“15 Ways to increase EFT’S Transforming Effectiveness:
1. Increasing Joy: Smile as you do EFT Tapping while repeat affirmations/ intention/resolve/goal/focus.
2. Meditation & Contemplation: Allow yourself to be aware of the inner presence of your Soul (Higher Self, Guardian Angel or God) that is witnessing you doing EFT tapping and of your thoughts and feelings that come and go. Dive into this ocean of the presence of endless joy and love, which is your essential nature.
3. Healing Relationships: Visualize, imagine, picture or pretend your inner child, teenager or partner is saying/singing these affirmations to you and you are lovingly or compassionately saying these affirmations to them as you do EFT tapping.
4. Brain Clearing & EFT: Do EFT Tapping Sequence while doing kegels (with or without doing affirmations). Kegels help lessen high blood pressure (medical study) but they also stimulate parts of the brain that are helpful in clearing stress.

Yoga Poses which can be combined easily with EFT tapping: Spinal Twist (Matsyendrasana), Head to Knee Posture (Janushirasana), and the Shivasana Pose.
“6. How many seconds does it takes to influence your Heart, Lungs, Brain & Body Vitality with EFT? Normally, it takes 8 seconds for the blood to go from the heart to the brain and back. It takes 16 seconds for the blood to go from your heart to your toes and back. By doing EFT tapping on each point for 8 or 16 seconds, you increase its effects on all levels.
“Procedure: Repeat your Set up Goal, Focus, or Affirmations (Weight Mastery, for example: eating less and the right types of food is your goal. One affirmation you could use is: I eat light and feel bright or I eat light and chew each mouthful thoroughly.) Say this out-loud for 8 seconds as you do EFT tapping. This will allow your affirmation to reprogram you brain and your nervous system for success, greater health, self confidence, weight loss, and forgiveness. Repeat 1-3 times.
7. Say the Intent Affirmations as if you they are true with a zestful tone of voice and positive body posture while doing EFT tapping. Go for the gold! This procedure will help dissolve self-doubt and sabotaging feelings.

When we have unresolved emotional stress, it drains our natural ability to respond with clarity and self-confidence to personal, relationship and financial challenges in our daily life. Many of my clients use these techniques daily (7-30 minutes each day) to dissolve the charge of anger, depression, worry and fears. By freeing yourself from this unnecessary past and present stress, you can increase your level of self-confidence, inner peace, vitality, forgiveness, and joy. These therapies can be done silently anywhere. For most people the intensity of whatever is upsetting them usually drains away fairly quickly (5 to 30 minutes) through these unique processes.
