Meridian Tapping - A Tool For Change

Recently I came across a very interesting resource for help in eliminating pain and clearing the way for life change. Actually I first heard of Meridian Tapping or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) years ago. It is an effective method for many people who are suffering from the physical or emotional pain that prevents them from living the life they desire.

For those who have experienced acupuncture or acupressure, you will be familiar with the concept of meridians, which are the pathways through the body which in eastern medicine are believed to be the way energy travels through the body.

For practitioners of energy medicine, the approach to healing is holistic, addressing the needs of the body, mind and spirit. There is no separation as there is in western practices where you go for help with the body, mind and spirit to different specialists.

Symptoms, which are identified, then suppressed with drugs and therapies in western medicine, are seen differently by energy practitioners. To a traditional acupuncturist for instance, a symptom is an indication that you are out of balance. This is caused by a block somewhere in the meridian system.

Points along the 7 meridians or pathways are identified and either needles or finger pressure is applied to the points. The treatment removes the block, the bodymind returns to its natural balance, the symptom (which was just a signal to you) is released, energy begins to flow as it should and your health is restored.

This of course, is my rather simplistic description of something ancient, complex and mysterious. New attention is being paid to this old and venerable system of treatment. During the past 5 years or so since my initial discovery of EFT or Meridian Tapping, the movement has gained terrific momentum.

Practitioners and interested ordinary people are using it to address a wide range of issues including physical pain and illness, mental illness, emotional problems, self-defeating behaviors, addictions and manifesting desired life changes.

My "Inner Skeptic" would find it difficult to believe that one method could be effective for so many problems. But having been a happy recipient for years of acupressure and acupuncture, I knew that those experiences were healing in a holistic way. I have been referring clients to practitioners of both for years.

Meridian Tapping or EFT adds statements of belief that are affecting your health in all aspects of your life. So in other words, the cognitive and emotional elements are added. You can learn how to incorporate a practice of Meridian Tapping which will enhance your life as you achieve the goals you have set. For many people this is a powerful tool for change.
