What is Energy Healing?
Another great question sent in by one of our loyal listeners of “The Nurtured Empath” Podcast
This is a question I do get asked a lot and it is a broad topic as there are so many different types of energy healing that come under the umbrella “Energy Psychology”.
I am going to talk to you about the type of energy healing that I am trained, certified and have experience within and that is EFT-Tapping.
EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques and also well known as Tapping as we tap on the upper body and face. It is quite self-explanatory, it is giving you freedom from your emotional disharmony.
As I mentioned it is commonly referred to as tapping because we do a gentle tapping or percussion of the fingertips on the skin. It is also described as a form of psychological acupressure, if you have ever had acupuncture, it is like that but without the needles.
It is tapping on the specific meridians on the upper body and face whilst you think about a problem you are experiencing. What we have found with the combination of the tapping and the voicing of what is going on for you is a clearing of the short in the energy circuit, or better described as clearing out the emotional energy block.
Helping your mind and body to restore its balance, which helps you to gain and maintain optimal health.
Everything here on earth is made up of energy including us, so all that is within us is energy, and if you have blocks within your energy field it is going to have an impact on you in mind, body and spirit.
Energy healing and specifically what I do – EFT-Tapping – it really helps to release those blocks, allowing them to find their way out. Because if you continue to hold these blocks within your system, it is not just going to affect your energetic system it is going to start to affect you on a physical level as well.
What I have learned and noticed through my training, the healing I have done on myself but also my clients is there always seems to be an emotional component to any physical issue or chronic disease.
It has come from something and stress is a very big indicator with that, and what we have found with EFT-Tapping is that it lowers the stress hormone – cortisol. Tapping really helps you to return to a calm and relaxed state, instead of staying within a stressed and anxious state.
If you think about a time where you have been through a really rough time, you are in a very heightened stressed state and it can be hard to come back to the beautiful calm and relaxed state due to what you have experienced.
What I have found with energy healing and EFT is that it is just such a simple thing that you can do, it is essentially right at the end of your fingers, you don’t need to go and grab anything it is right there. You can just start tapping on the upper body and face and start to release out some of that anxiety and stress, so you are not carrying that around with you for a long period of time.
Energy healing really is a tool to ensure you are not continuing to carry around heavy energy that is only doing you a disservice, mentally, physically and emotionally.
In a previous article and podcast episode I talked about the energetic body vs the emotional body vs the physical body and energy healing and EFT-tapping is really going to help you to support each of those bodies individually and holistically.
Our body is very wise and very good at healing things for us including chronic disease, if we allow it to get into the right environment to be able to do that and heal itself.
The problem with that is, if we are carrying around high levels of stress, high levels of trauma from past experiences in our body then it can’t heal itself. It just doesn’t have that capacity, because it has all those blocks sitting in its system, so it needs us to help it and that is where energy healing and EFT-tapping comes in.
Now as an energy healer and certified EFT Practitioner I am working in this area each and every day, both on myself and with my clients. Guiding my clients to release experiences of the past that are holding them back, gently of course.
On top of that EFT-Tapping empowers you to take back your life. Obviously for the deeper wounds and traumas it is important that you are working with me in private session, as I will guide you and keep you safe. But for day to day experiences, such as anxiety, stress, overall emotions that you encounter, EFT-tapping will help to keep you in a calm state despite what is going on around and outside of you.
A question I get asked a lot especially from my private clients is always “but what if I don’t know the words”, the good thing is, if you are in that emotion already, you are feeling sad or angry, stressed or anxious. You are already in it, so you don’t need the words, just start tapping and you will start to notice the emotion dissipate and bring you back to a state of calm.
If you haven’t done tapping before, I have done a short video as an introduction to tapping for you to check out.
You can also book in with me for a private session either online worldwide or if you are local to the Gold Coast, Australia I also offer in-home sessions.
