What is EFT and why is everyone talking about it?
Quite simply, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is the most exciting breakthrough in therapy and personal development in a long time. It is a new treatment tool for anxieties, fears, trauma, procrastination, addictions, weight loss and much more: a gentle, highly effective way to transform any issues blocking emotional happiness, personal achievement or physical well-being.
EFT, also known as ‘Energy Psychology’, involves stimulating the Chinese meridian energy system while tuning into the thoughts and feelings associated with an issue that is limiting. It is a form of emotional acupuncture without the needles, and is based on the premise that all negative emotions are the result of a disruption in the body’s energy system.
EFT works by clearing the blockage or disruption by tapping on the end points of the body’s energy meridians (while thinking of a specific issue) which sends pulses of energy to rebalance the body’s energy system in relation to that thought/specific issue. Shifting energy changes the way the brain processes information about a particular issue, and so tapping while tuned in to the issue is like rewiring or rerouting the brain’s conditioned negative response. You can imagine how liberating this is if you or someone you know has suffered from a phobia, or traumatic memories. EFT also works in the same way to release the limiting thoughts and beliefs that get in the way of your success, happiness, health and inner peace.
So how does Matrix Re-imprinting differ from this already established technique?
Well, Matrix Re-Imprinting has evolved from EFT but also contains some important differences. For example, in conventional EFT tapping on meridian end points is used to take the emotional intensity out of a past memory. This leaves you able to recall your most traumatic and stressful life memories without any emotional disruption or stress, extremely useful as negative past memories keep the body in a state of stress and can contribute to disease.
However, with Matrix Re-imprinting the memory is actually transformed. You can go into any past memory, say and do what you wished you’d said and done, bring in new resources, and create and transform the picture you have of that memory.
In Matrix Re-imprinting we see these past negative memories as being held as pictures or holograms in your body-field. Until you transform them you keep tuning into them on a subconscious level and they affect your health, your wellbeing and your point of attraction. Changing the pictures creates both physical and emotional healing, and enables you to attract more positive experiences into your life. And by tapping on the meridians of the body at the same time, the process is accelerated.
