Because EFT tapping is all about energy

I’m always looking for new ways to open people’s minds to the possibilities of Emotional Freedom Technique AKA EFT tapping. And especially the concept of energy healing – before I demonstrate it.


So first, I want you to understand…


The law of vibration states all that exists in our universe, whether seen or unseen, broken down into and analyzed in its purest and most basic form, consists of pure energy or light. That energy resonates and exists as a vibratory frequency or pattern. And you are made of cells, which are made of atoms, which are made of particles, and those particles are really just vibrating energy. We are more empty space than physical stuff; more vibration than mass. And energy impacts us – positively and negatively. So, you have science to lean on when it comes to energy healing methodologies.” Kimberly Rinaldi


EFT tapping is self-care

Next, understand that when the energy in your body is disrupted (through accident, illness, injury or negative emotional experience), it results in physical or emotional pain. And while you may be skeptical at this point, I want you to understand that all emotions, thoughts, beliefs, decisions and behaviors are biochemical electrical responses – energy.


As I’ve said before, I’m a skeptic when it comes to new methods that I haven’t tried before and EFT tapping made no sense to me when I first tried it. And here we are more than 20 years later – I’m still using it and teaching it.


But I can’t see energy (she whines loudly)

Let’s travel back in time to 1846, and our would-be hero, a Hungarian doctor named Ignaz Semmelweis. While Pasteur gets credit for actually identifying microscopic organisms (germs) it was Semmelweis who theorized there was an unseen contagion causing “childbed fever”, the leading cause of postpartum death for women of that era.


He came to this radical conclusion after adopting various practices used in the midwife hospital in the hopes of reducing patient mortality in the physician hospital. You see, patients in the physician and medical student ward were dying at a rate of five times greater than patients in the midwife ward.


The one practice that seemed to make a difference was – hand washing between patients. Something we take for granted today.


It wasn’t until a colleague died from sepsis contracted from a finger prick he acquired during an autopsy on a childbed fever patient, that Semmelweis understood the link. The unseen contagion. Again, Pasteur gets all the credit, but it was Semmelweis who made the connection.


EFT tapping and technology

Imagine it’s 50 or 100 years from now. You walk into a medical office where they place you in front of a machine. Examine you and say ‘Oh, look – you have disrupted or blocked energy. We just need to correct that for you.’ Because technology will likely enable us to see then what we can’t see now. But in the meantime, just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean that we can’t change it.


Louis Pasteur claimed that there were these tiny germs that no one could see that caused disease. They ridiculed him for suggesting that physicians should wash their hands after working in the morgue and before entering the hospital to deliver babies. When doctors started washing their hands, the death rate dropped from 30% to under 2%. Now we know that he was right, technological advancements allow us to see germs today.


Will technology allow us to see these energy fields that Chinese medicine has been talking about and working with for thousands of years? Hopefully in our lifetime! Until then, we have tools like EFT tapping. Tool that may make no sense, might seem a bit odd and yet work absolute wonders. Try it. Let me know what you think.
