EFT Tapping : Emotional Freedom Technique

What is Tapping?

On the most basic level tapping is exactly as it sounds. You take your hand and gently tap against certain areas of your body with your fingers. All of this is done while speaking positive affirmations of your choosing. On a much deeper level tapping is creating movement of the energetic meridians. Tapping is also known as EFT or emotional freedom techniques.

 

I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them. Oscar Wilde

How does Tapping work?

When executed properly, tapping helps to realign our energy within our meridians. When the energy is flowing properly we feel great in our natural state of being. However, when the energy is not flowing properly we feel out of balance and may incur physical illness and / or disease. Tapping assists in correcting the energy flow within our bodies, realigning us to our natural state of being. Similar to acupuncture in that you stimulate certain points of the human body with needles. By tapping we use our fingers to create a similar effect naturally. Stimulating these meridian points can greatly reduces stress in the body.

 

How to Perform Tapping

Our first step is to take a deep breathe all the way into the pit of our stomachs, hold for a few seconds and then breathe out. Here you are trying to gauge your current stress levels so that we can see how we feel before and after a tapping session to measure our results.

We begin by gently tapping certain areas (pressure points) within our body while speaking our affirmations. The choice of words are yours to make, the important part is to feel the emotions and choose the right affirmations that will help you become a better you over time as you are tapping. Some examples could be, “I am going to have a great day today” or something along the lines of, “I choose to love and accept myself”. A common technique when tapping is to repeat an affirmation several times as you are tapping a specific point, before moving on to the next area.

After going through the process of tapping various points and speaking your affirmations, you may want to repeat the cycle again. This is fine, just be sure to stay relaxed and let the experience flow naturally. Before you begin the cycle remember to take a deep breathe and gauge your current state of being. You can tap with two fingers, your whole hand, or both hands on opposite sides. The important thing is to do whatever feels most comfortable and natural to you while tapping the correct pressure points on your body.

The Power of the 12 Universal Laws

As human beings, we know that there are certain laws that exist on this earth that we must all abide by. Such as the law of gravity, i.e. what goes up must come down. But what if I was to tell you there is another set of laws that affect us everyday of our lives that you probably know little to nothing about. A set of laws that nature abides by called universal laws. Well, these laws are exactly what we will be discussing today… The Power of the 12 Universal Laws!

 

Nature, when left to universal laws, tends to produce regularity out of chaos. Immanuel Kent

The 12 Universal Laws

The Law of Divine Oneness – The first law of the universal laws tells us that not only are we all separate, but we are also connected as all is of the one. We’re all created different yet equal as we are all part of the divine source. This means our thoughts, actions, and beliefs not only have an effect on our lives, but can and do affect the universe around us as well.

The Law of Vibration – Everything is moving (vibrating) in patterns, some noticeable, others not as much, yet the movement is still occurring. Our thoughts, dreams, feelings, and actions all carry a certain vibration with them. Everything at its core is vibration, similar to a sine wave. Moving up and then down, up again and then down again, completing the pattern. This is the law of vibration.

The Law of Action – The third law is the law of action. This law requires us to not only think the thoughts in our minds, but to follow through with physical action in order to complete the process. To put it more simply the law of action is all about manifesting your intentions. Bringing intangible thought into physical reality.

The Law of Correspondence – This one has to do with both the physical and immaterial worlds. That is to say principles in this world also have corresponding principles in the non-physical world. Much like your inner world (thoughts, feelings) have an effect on your outer world. The law of correspondence is no different.

The Law of Cause and Effect – We have all heard the saying what you put out is what you get back. What this means nothing happens by accident as there is always an effect created by the cause. Every action will bring you and equal and opposite reaction to complete the process. Some people consider this law to be connected with Karma.

The Law of Compensation – This law is closely tied in to the law of cause and effect and applies to abundance flowing into our lives. The law of compensation is the direct effect of our actions causing visible manifestation. It can also be seen as the positive benefits of karma, or simply good intentions causing positive feedback to flow into your life.

The Law of Attraction – Our thoughts have the power to affect our reality and this is what the law of attraction is all about. Negative energy brings negativity the same way positive energy brings positivity. The law of attraction is like 2 magnets clinging together, or more simply put…about like attracting like.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy – Energy can be transmuted or changed based upon your desire. Therefore you have the power to change your current circumstances and “transmute” them into what it is that you truly desire. If your intentions are focused and your desire is strong, you will eventually get what it is that you want. Higher vibrations can and will transmute lower energies. This is the law of transmutation.

The Law of Relativity – Refers to the challenges that we must face in our everyday lives. It is not about succumbing to these challenges but instead it is about overcoming them through our positive thoughts and actions. When your perspective is in the proper place you see life for what it is and everything becomes relative to the perspective you align with.

The Law of Polarity – Has to do with the duality we face in this reality. For everything that exists there is an opposite that also exists. This is known as the opposition to all things. Positive and negative, light and dark, male and female, etc. Polarity exists, but in most cases it can be transmuted. Therefore if you desire to move from negativity to positivity it is possible through the law of polarity.

The Law of Rhythm – In the same way rhythm is about movement, The law of rhythm is about vibration and the flow that this creates. Much like the cycle of changing seasons or the flow of the waves in the ocean there is a rhythm that exists to these occurrences. So too is there a rhythm to different stages that present themselves throughout our lives. Mastering the law of rhythm will facilitate in creating a continuous flow in the direction you so choose for your life.

The Law of Gender – The basis for all creation, the law of gender refers to the yin vs yang qualities that make up this reality. Believe it or not each male contains feminine qualities just as each female contains masculine qualities. The trick to the law of gender is to find a balance between these two qualities within yourself. One should strive to not be too far out of sync with the other. With the law of gender, balance is the key.

 

You’ll be happy to know that the universal law that created miracles hasn’t been repealed. Wayne Dyer

My Take: The 12 Universal Laws

Now that you know of the Universal Laws and have been given a guide to the meaning behind them, it is up to you to begin applying them to your life as you see fit. Each law teaches a specific lesson that can be applied to various aspects of your life. Take the list of 12 and begin reflecting upon the laws one at a time, until you receive your own personal realization. One per week is a great starting point when applying these laws to your self. I say one per week because it takes time to see how each law applies to you and your life as you live it. You can always go for longer but 7 days is generally enough time to clearly see the changes and experience how they can / will affect you. If you have any questions be sure to ask them in the comments below. All the best to you and your ongoing journey of progression in this life.

 

Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law. Immanuel Kant
