When I do EFT, I instantly teleport to here…

It’s rare that I say someone “needs” to do something, but in this case I’m going to lay out at least 7 reasons why I think you would benefit from learning EFT (and where you can learn it free!)…

First up, for those who think I’m talking about something you do at an ATM, I probably need to explain myself.

EFT is short for Emotional Freedom Technique and is — these days — called “tapping.” It’s an acupressure / affirmation technique that works to calm your energy channels and create major healing in the body.

If this sounds wo-wo to you, run with your feeling because I felt the same way the first time I was introduced to it.

It’s a technique that could literally change your life in many ways. I’m going to share 7 here…

(If you want a more detailed explanation of EFT or tapping, you can read this article here: Introduction to EFT or Tapping)

1. You can get rid of anxiety.

We all walk through life with some level of anxiety — whether it’s from external sources or from inside.

Tapping can work to help calm your body’s stress centers, so you can be more balanced and calm.

Whether you believe it or not, this type of acupressure — which is what EFT is — works to create a physical state of calm with your endocrine system.

And as you know, if you’re endocrine system is cool, so are you.

If you have anxiety, you can follow along here with super-success coach Cheryl Richardson. Don’t be fooled by the quality of the video, she’s a multiple New York Times bestseller…

2. It’s fantastic for eliminating cravings…

To eliminate cravings, you need to eliminate what is causing them. Willpower doesn’t cut it.

So the work is not about the craving, it’s what is underneath.

Tapping or EFT can allow you to dig deeper into what is really causing the craving so you can stop it. Maybe you don’t feel loved. Maybe you’re unhappy with your job or relationship. Maybe you were hurt when you were younger and haven’t healed that emotional scar. Maybe you’re stuck in a neurosis about diet and you’re not getting the right nutrients.

There are many issues that could cause cravings, but when you get to the center of them — not surprisingly — they go away.

I meet up with my friend Nick Ortner a while back and we filmed this show on how you can bust through your cravings without having to use willpower or appetite suppression pills…

3. It can help deal with physical pain.

This is a surprising application of tapping — the elimination or assistance with physical pain.

How can tapping your body help you heal something physical?

Simply, because you’re tapping acupressure points. If you believe acupuncture can help you heal physical issues, then it’s not too far of a stretch to believe that acupressure could — at least — help.

I’ve seen some amazing things happen when people use tapping for pain relief, like back pain gone, arthritis less painful, and headaches completely gone.

The best way to believe this or not is to work with it and see if it works for you. Here’s a video with EFT expert Brad Yates as he takes you through a tapping sequence for pain…

4. Get rid of phobias and fears.

The first video I saw of someone tapping, was a grainy clip of EFT founder Gary Craig working with a man who had a serious fear of water.

So much, in fact, the man wouldn’t even walk near the pool.

Gary tapped with the man for about 45 minutes and the man’s intense fear slowly dissipated.

By the end of the session, Gary convinced the man to get into the pool and suddenly he was splashing around like a kid.

Something took this person from intense fear to extreme ease and elation.

Skeptics may say it was Gary’s skill as a practitioner (and I don’t doubt that as a factor), but the tapping must have had something to do with it. I’m pretty sure it would have been hard to just talk-therapy the guy into the pool.

Here’s Gary working with a woman who hates rats (the ending is pretty amazing!)…

5. Use it for abundance and success!

We all want to be successful in some aspect of our lives.

You don’t have to be a business person to succeed — you can be a great mom or dad, you can do something really well, you can make beautiful things, you can create change (small or large.)

EFT is fantastic for breaking through issues around not feeling successful or abundant.

This is how I’ve used it the most.

I will find myself using EFT probably at least 2-3 times a week to break through some sort of block I seem to be having in my life — personal or business.

It’s almost like I tap it away in minutes. Sometimes, of course, it comes back — but other times, it’s gone for good.

One of my favorite tapping / success experts is Carol Look. I’ve interviewed her 2-3 times in the past and I wanted to show you a clip of her explaining how tapping works for success so you can get excited about what it can do for you…

6. Clear emotional stress and past trauma.

If you’re dealing with something in your past like abuse, emotional trauma, car accident, unexpected death in the family, or many other issues, you may want to try EFT to help you get some closure — or at least emotional relief.

I’m not a therapist or anything like that, but I’ve seen and talked to many people who’ve said that EFT has worked much quicker on their trauma than years of talk therapy.

Again, if you’re suffering, getting more tools in the belt is almost always a good thing.

Here’s tapping expert Nick Ortner working with a woman onstage (it’s two parts)…

7. Try it on everything…

The last one is the catch-all. I can’t think of many more uses — since these above pretty much cover it all — but if you think of something and you feel like it’s an issue in your life, you can tap on it.

Some examples are attracting good relationships, procrastination, perfectionism, impatience, performance in sports, you name it!

So, where to go from here?

I think the best thing to do is to dive right in, LOL!

And you can next week…
