Emotional freedom techniques, while sounding new, have actually been widely used in Asia for thousands of years. It is based on the principal that your body has energy that flows through it, and there are points known as Chakras on the body that are energy points that regulate the flow of energy through the body’s energy system. There are seven different Chakras, representing not only the seven endocrine glands, but also nerve clusters called a plexus.
By tapping on different acupressure points, and thinking about relieving pain, or healing a certain organ, for example, the energy flow starts to realign and help with what you need. However, many people use to broad a spectrum of issues or problems that need to be resolved. For example instead of just saying help me with my self esteem, you should address one of the actual reasons for those feelings. Maybe someone ridiculed you in school or your parents were constantly putting you down. By addressing each of these issues instead of trying to fix everything at once, you are sure to see better results.
Chinese homeopathy comes in many forms, and this is just one of many. There is a great deal of information on EFT and it has become more widely recognized as an inexpensive yet effective alternative to conventional physiological therapies. It has also been around for many years as a different choice for pain management, and is not only less expensive that medication, but with now side effects.
You can learn the basics from many websites for free, but you should do some researching first. The more information you want to learn about, the more you will have to pay for, or spend time finding what you need on your own. This can be quite confusing and overwhelming at times.
Maintaining proper energy alignment is essential to being healthy in body, mind and spirit. You can get more knowledge about Chakras either through search engines, but sometimes you may find it locally, from businesses that sell crystals, and other ‘new age’ items. Usually you can find a simple list of what the different Chakras are and what parts of the body they represent. These retailers have a wide assortment of other books and products on energy and how it works through your body.
This is just one of the many different self help resources available to you. You may find that one thing will work, or even a combination of different techniques that work together for you. It is important to know that while for some things the results may be quick, but others over time. You should stick with it even if you feel it is not working, just to make sure. It is also a good idea that you get in the habit of practicing regularly, not just once in awhile.
Many people fail from simply that lack of consistency. Once you are committed to this, you should keep at it. You should try to learn as much as possible as well, so you know you are doing it right. Before trying any thing that effects your mind and body, it is a good idea to consult your health care provider. They may also be another resource of information, or can at least steer you in the right direction.
