Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a major tool in my toolbox for myself and my animals.
To quote Garry Craig, “EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques (sometimes called Tapping) and, in essence, it is an emotional version of acupuncture, except we don’t use needles. Instead, we stimulate certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. This has shown repeatedly to reduce the conventional therapy process from months or years down to minutes, hours or a few sessions.”
To put it another way, I use EFT to clear emotional baggage from animals and people. It is fast, simple, and easy to learn. For the equestrian, it can even be done one-handed while riding your horse if issues come up. You can do surrogate EFT, tapping away the emotional issues of your animals on your own body, or you tap directly on your animal. You can tap yourself.
Garry feels that EFT is a tool that should be available to everyone at no cost and his website is packed with free manuals, videos, a blog, and more!
The super simple EFT basic recipe is here. If you learn nothing else, learn this.
Poke around on Gary’s site. There is a LOT of EFT information.
Meanwhile, Brad Yates is an EFT practitioner that I particularly enjoy. He has hundreds of free YouTube videos and I start every morning with a tapping session using his videos. Also check out his website www.bradyates.net
Finally, there is an important refinement I encourage you to explore and use. Conscious Language, invented by Robert Tennyson Stevens, teaches you to use words in the most powerful way for change. EFT tapping becomes even more powerful using only conscious language phrasing. I sub in conscious language wording when I am following EFT scripts from other people, and always phrase my own with conscious language.
